5:45 PM - 8:45 PM, Tuesday, August 20th, 1996:
Munch hasn’t used my opener for weeks. It kind of sucks. He keeps asking me if I mind doing the shift, well no but if you’re that worried...you could play my opener. :-) Oh well. And I don’t know if Conners liked my second bump, I’ll give him 3 more. Only for BC would I do that much freakin’ work. ZZZ...
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM, Wednesday, August 21st, 1996:
Ran the board and got out. Buh-bye. A bit worried. Haven’t written all my Top 9 Lists for this upcoming week. Nor have I done all the Boyles, or any for that matter. I need about 4 Top 9 Lists, and The 3 Boyles, and of course 6 Lesters. Really need 6 Top 9’s, but the last two will be about the convention, and I cant write those yet.
7:00 PM - 6:30 AM, Friday - Saturday, August 23rd - 24th, 1996: SHOW 173
No Munch today because of a Reds double-header. Hansell was only on for 10 minutes which sucks. Anyway my show kicked absolute ass. As I look back I realize I didn’t tell you about the all time best idea I’ve ever had. The Late Show Online. I’m opening a private room online so they can chat back and forth with me and others who are listening to the show. Pretty damn awesome eh? Premiered the new song for that as well as the Macaroni (spoof of the Macarena), and of course The Boyles. Actually one of my favorites. So now just 2 more, and 4 more Lesters. Got 2 done tonight. I’ll be fine. Show was great. A big huge Coffee Talk on the new smoking laws which no one seems to understand. And a good laughing night all around. I’m one lucky boy, I’ll tell you that much. Need to get the cover done for The Boyles, September is a week from tomorrow!! Ha, I don’t have to go back to school!!
9:30 PM - 7:00 AM, Saturday - Sunday, August 24th - 25th, 1996: SHOW 174
Another great show until 4:30 AM. When I died and so did the listeners. Now to start off the show I get a fax from AG that is like the exile fax John and Jane got telling us all that was wrong with the show and station. Get over yourself AG. All night he bugs Angela and faxes me. And he wouldn’t call and talk to me. Finally by the end of the night he got on and we talked it out. He’s alright. All night was a HUGE struggle. Mind Trap sucked and went too quickly. Fucked at the end of the show. But people seem to like hearing me go nuts. Apparently people laughed at my expense. Mary said the show was funny as hell. Ok. Fine. Then Michael calls up and badgers me. What a loser. Calls off the air. Over and over. One thing after another. It kept going and going. FINALLY it was 6:00 AM. I was so bummed after this show. I’m not really looking forward to this week now. But I’ll go in early and make this show killer. I hope.

I deserved this night. Absolutely kick ass. A killer first hour, second hour was slow. Killer 3rd hour, and Trivia went well, and then hey, I’m done at 5! Had a caller who usually likes both Steve and I finally call up and say I was better. This from a guy who I would never have thought would say that. He has even called up to defend both of us from people who say things like that. He used the name Omar on a carphone instead of Jeff on a carphone, but oh well. Perfect. I would give anything to have the next 4 nights go this good. Oh please... It makes Cannon sound so boring. So boring. YES!!!! Ha! Will talk to ya in 24...
