Tuesday, June 24th - 25th, 1996:
- Kind of a boring show I
thought. Talk was again about Stupid stories although
I tried to veer away. Aaron did Saturday Morning
Fever, and that was good. Got talk going on cartoons
which blew. During tvivia I had a question about Heidi
Bush, and her little forrest, and Angela and I started
laughing so hard I had to stop the segment and go to a
break. I don't know how I stopped my case of the
giggles. It was very difficult. 4:00 hour went fast,
and that was it. Perkins and Bradley were tame, oh and
Kevin Rowe finally paid me for my disc. Now if I can
only find Chuck Patterson.

- Wednesday, June 25th - 26th, 1996:
- Boyles 6 went over well. Pretty
damn funny. Very odd night though. Felt like I was
stumblin' through the whole night. No real topics.
Clinton a bit. It got so bad at the end of the 1:00
hour that I did Lester for 5 minutes so people would
think it was the character stumblin' not me. Had a
girl Eleni (uh-Lenny) call from Los Angeles,
supposedly a contact for me music-wise. That was cool.
I think that was miles-wise the furthest away I've had
a caller. Washington DC - Andy, Philadelphia - ?,
Cleveland - Prof. and Gary, West Virginia - Adam,
Detroit - ?, Las Vegas - B and B's, The Bahamas -
Kevin, Los Angeles - Eleni...I think that's it. OH,
and after the show, Mike and Joe went on and on about
The Boyles! They said that they both stayed in their
cars to listen to the end. That rocked. That's the
coolest thing they sould have possibly said. They
really liked it. It was pretty good. Man, I can't
believe tomorrow's Thursday already. I'm goin' fishin'
with Jim after the shift. That should be

Wednesday - Thursday, June 26th - 27th, 1996:
- Ho hum night. Some pretty good
talk, but I was really tired for some reson. Trivia
sucked. Noone could get these Mind trap questions. Had
a pre face off that used more questions than the
segment! It really blew. Finally that ended, and I got
to go FISHING! It was pretty fun, but I didn't catch
anything, and that's all Jim did. I hope the audio
turned out good for tomorrow's show.

- Friday, June 27th - 28th, 1996:
- Oh my god. Worst night ever.
Mark it down, Friday June 27th, 1996....Worst night
ever. Just noone called. 3 callers hour one. 2 callers
hour 2, 3 callers hour 3...then get this: 18
contestents for the new trivia Play It By Ear!!!
What's up with that? Then noone after that. Man did it
suck. I really don't know how I did it without
reverting to music...but I didn't. As I'm writing I
can't believe how bad it was. Really puts a bad taste
in my mouth after such a good week. Thank god it's
over and I can go back to my weekend position.

Saturday, June 28th - 29th, 1996:
- Ahh, my shift. It's good to be
home. Great show, still hard in the 5:00 and the 4:00
hours to get calls, but I managed well. Saturday
Morning Fever was good, but too long. Talk was mainly
about The Clintons and the economy. The Boyles was
very funny, but noone ever calls in about it! Dammit!
I work so fuckin' hard on it, and I get no feedback. I
know people like it. They have to. Shit. Anyway, then
as I'm driving home Ron calls Bob (not one of my
listeners) and says I'm the most boring person he's
ever heard, then says he likes BC, then says he can't
stand John and Jane...and that's it! Nice guy. What
kills me is I try so hard to cater to that 5:00 to
6:00 audience and then my credibility gets shot by
some fuck up. Maybe he's never heard Cannon... He
can't think that man's better. No way. Ah well...get
over it Adam. Just make tomorrow better.

- What an awesome show.
farewell to Brushes With Fame.
125 and out. Actually it was 108. I fucked up and
never told anyone and then confessed it in a song.
Things were so smooth and fun. A lot of people
commented on how much they liked The Boyles which was
nice. Overall a great way to end the stint. Mind Trap
was actually pretty good, and with my reviews had no
problem getting to 6:00. Oh god...tomorrow is midday
traffic. Damn. I hate doin' traffic.
- 9:15 AM - 1:50 PM, Monday,
July 1st, 1996:
- My last day of traffic. Thank
god that's over. It went alright, but nothing happened
traffic wise, and it was hard not to repeat the same
things over and over. I don't know how anyone could do
this for a living. Pam's a freak. I hope I never have
to do it again. I did good though. Alright, enough of
- 5:30 PM, Monday, July 1st,
- I'm making $7.50 an hour!!!!!
Hell yeah! That's 50 cents more than I thought I'd
get. And you wouldn't believe how thankful Bill was.
It was great. I said thanks, and he said..no, thank
you...it was great. I'm hopin' to be up to $9.00 in a
year, and maybe $8.25 by January '97.
