What an outstanding show. Wow. I was not prepared, spent all pre-production time doing The Boyles #10 and The Top Nine List. Did a Top 9 song (hell will any bit not have a song?), it's a play on the fact that it's not 10 because of Letterman. Angela was late...grrr. I wasn’t too fond of The Boyles - really hit and miss with them. But the callers lifted it to a new level. Kevin Rowe (before me) had none, and I honestly didn’t have a spare moment. It was beautiful. The difference between callers and no callers is unreal. I feel so much better. Had this idiot Eric call me racist and I got into it with him. Whew did he dig a whole. The TWA crash definitely spawned some calls, and so did the Olympics. Just a great show. Felt good all the way through and never dragged. Looking back on it now, 6 hours is a long time, but I was there for 12 hours, and it didn’t phase me! I can barely see now, and I mean that. I can barely read the keyboard, but at work I’m alive. Wow. I love my job.

Another fun show. Replayed the Eric conversation and it got me goin’ and some callers. Light first two hours, but at 2:00 we had Glenn, Michael, and Tim all going nuts...it was fun. Now at 5:30 Eric called back and apologized! Can you believe it? Unfortunately Michael called back and tried to pick a fight with him. It was obvious Eric had just woken up and was in no mood. Neither was I and I ended it quick. The show was fun though. Got a lot of compliments on The Boyles, and have finally decided to make a Boyles Tape to sell. Watch it outsell my CD. Anyway Aaron gave me his drawn versions of Lester and they were pretty good. I worked on one and I think I liked it. Want to make T-Shirts and Coffee Mugs. Anyway...good weekend and it’s over. Bye.

Boring. Had some people tell me they like Cannon’s show better last night... After listening to his first 2 hours tonight I haven’t the slightest notion how that could be. This man has all but given up. If the callers call he’s fine, otherwise he struggles. Oh well, I enjoy doin’ this just to see where the man’s at. :-)
