- There's a
meeting in 2 hours to announce the new schedule
changes. Wouldnt it be great if Cannon quit...
... ... ... ... ...that was me dreaming right there.
Darryl called me and explained that he did, in time,
want BJ to run my board. The more I thought about it,
I think he could once he can feel the show. He is very
competent on the board Im sure. I really
think my whole world is going to be upside down.
Everything was story-tale in the overnights, but now
it will be different. I have this feeling that the
magic will be gone. Who knows. Maybe its just
paranoia. I really have a bad feeling about the
changes. If only Cannon would quit. Ah well. Read
further, and see how the meeting went.

2:30 PM, Thursday, January 16th, 1997:
That was awesome. It was a normal meeting. Just talked
about the recent changes at the station. It was
amazing how many people came to me and said hi.
Everyone knows who I am. Its cool. I waited and
waited to hear Darryl talk about the new night
schedule, but he never did. Then the shit happened. I
mean the shit. He singled me out on up and coming
talent, and talked about my Lester imersonation I did
for the whole hour. It was great. Then Greg Kurtz
explained how I did it last week and talked to myself.
And I proceeded to take the floor and tell them what
happened and how I had conversation with Lester on the
phone while being myself. It rocked. People were
laughing and so on. He then said I was starting
full-time on Monday, and everyone applauded. Then a
sales lady jumped in and asked when I was going to be
on, and he explained my new hours and so on. Weekend
evenings. During this whole escapade I glanced over at
Cannon and he looked like he was going to puke. Stone
cold look on his face. It was awesome. After the
meeting I went over to Cannon and Darryl and figured
out how things were going to work. I would be board-op
and call screener. Thats how it would be for
everybody. Cannon talked about how he would bring me
into the show,and play off me when the calls were
light. Wow, Ill be on constantly. Ha. Anyway, it
was great. Got to talk with Munch for awhile. His show
is really kickin ass. Hes just so damn
likeable. Then I went in and talked to Darryl again. I
made sure I had his backing on the things that were
going to be said to Cannon. He said emphatically yes.
My arsenal is now full and ready to go. I am excited.
Afterwards I went upstairs and John Corby yelled
across the newsroom: "You Suck!" I said: "You Suck!"
Then I walked over and asked him what was up. He said
I was praised so much in the meeting that I needed
that. We laughed. That was very cool indeed. It was
amazing how many people seemed to have heard me. Wow.
Very cool. After the Corby thing I literally ran out
of there, it was too perfect to run into anyone else.

9:30 AM, Friday - Saturday, January 17th - 18th,
1997: SHOW 224
- Well, BJ came
in at 10:45 which was nice. We talked for a bit. I was
very excited to have him. I cant tell you how
glad I am that Angelas gone. I went over the
songs that shes in and inserted BJs name,
its funny as hell. The show kicked some butt. I
forgot to tape the first hour though. So much going
on. Mary from German village called up and said she
wasnt going to listen anymore that I had gotten
too crude. People are pissing their pants over the
word DOUCHE. And ANAL SEX. I can understand the
latter, but DOUCHE!?! It doesnt get much funnier
than that. Im thankfully making that break at
the old age bracket. My audience is about 13-60 strong
at 35. PERFECT. At the top of the hour, I quickly
showed BJ what to do, I said I would leave the studio
and let him work, an he did an amazing job. Quick and
on the ball. It was wonderful. Thinking of writing him
a thank-you card in a couple of weeks. Big problem. He
constantly wanted to talk on the air. He actually
typed "pot me up" twice (hes in-studio by the
way). Then he told Leon hed be running the board
for me next week. I paid very close attention to this
show, and there is NO FUCKIN WAY HE COULD DO IT.
Not cause hes incompetent like Angela was,
but its just too spur of the moment. I will
fight Darryl on this. Its a bad move for the
show. So overall BJ, well just annoyed me. Isnt
a big change from college. I may ask him to go back
into the producers room....He talks so damn
loud, that its confusing me. After the show,
Leon and I stayed to record The Boyles Episode 35 with
the one Rufus Brown. Leons voice is soooooo damn
funny. I snicker thinking of it. It turned out being a
pain in the ass, but very funny. Stayed so damn late
we ran into Jim Lachey and John Corby. Lachey always
surprises me when I see him. HES FREAKIN
HUGE. Could have easily been a power forward in the
NBA....If he had any skills in basketball. Ok,
thats about it. ONE MORE OVERNIGHT SHOW.

Saturday, January 18th, 1997:
- So I jump
online and decide to see what was going on in the chat
rooms. I see gay and lesbian chat and the
curiosity kills me. Guess who I see in
- Darryl. Wha? So
of course I instant message him:
Jesus. Go to bed.
so... the gay and lesbian chat room
amazing. Could get some goofy women into
you always feel like a stud when you get
another woman to think you
except theyre all horny teenage
yeah. could catch some
BTW. WTVN looks great on the chat
QUESTION: How much should BJ be on the
kept typing in to me to pot him up....my

Again, up to you.
in person, on the phone, and on the
net...jesus you cant get away from
Ill leave you be
oh and really quick...did anyone call you

I said anal sex in a skit too...the blue
hairs..went wild..said they would
they could think of
no. will get those on Monday. Dont
worry about it. the callers will all be 70
this was last week
- OK, I know
I have little room to talk because I was in the
same chatroom, but I know what I was
doing... what the fuck? And was he so nice because he
was freakin' out? I mean, YES! NO BJ ON THE
BOARDS! HA HA!, but wow. This is a nice bit of drama.
If the listeners only knew huh? Anyway, pretty cool
about the boards. Final overnight show
- 8:00 PM -
6:45 AM, Saturday - Sunday, January 18th - 19th, 1997:
- What a cool way
to end things. With a drop dead funny Boyles. My god,
Rufus was awesome, and it came together very well.
Hell the outtakes
from the show are just hilarious. That along with
skits and memories and first time callers, and
everything. It was perfect. BJ did great. I
havent broken the news about the show yet
though. He wont be too happy, Im sure. He
was looking forward to running the show. But tonight
was as close to perfection as one can get. And now,
thats it!!!! WOO-HOO. NO MORE TRIVIA. Ive
started to lay out my schedule for the new times, and
I think its gonna be great. I hope some people
start to notice me. I also promoted my "Superbowl
Party" as it were. Since Im on during the
superbowl I figured Id rather join them than
fight them. It should be a blast. If I can get anyone
to come! Anyway, the show was extremely smooth, and a
perfect send-off for the overnight era. And oh
jesus....What the hell will happen with Cannon?
Im very excited to see what happens. And, man...
I guess this is it. The end of my overnight log. Would
it make a good book? Who knows. For now, its
done, and we move on to a new era...
