- The show last
night was alright, but after calling Mary Jo
I find out apparently Steve is still calling her
for ideas and running guests by her. HA HA HA. She
fuckin hates that. Every time, CALL ME STEVE.
RUN THE GUESTS BY ADAM. So well see what
hes like at work tonight. Mary Jo really gets
pissed. Its cool. So from now on all guest go by
me. Cool. Oh and Mary Jos getting me a voice
mail number!!! Yahoo! Im a real person

5:00 AM, Tuesday - Wednesday, March 11th - 12th, 1997:
- I walk
apparently I have to run everything by you from now
- He throws all
these things by me, not literally, and then starts
bitching about how chicken soup for the soul is stupid
and he doesn't know what to ask this guest. What?
Apparently Cannon already booked a guest tonight, and
Tuesday night, and Wednesday night, and Thursday
night, and I had no clue. Hello, I had no clue. He
decides at 11:00 to cancel the guest so I get to call
him. Great. What part of run the guests by me
didnt he get. I kind of ripped him one this
time. Mary Jo JUST TALKED TO HIM, and now this. This
should be it however. He actually apolgized for not
"getting with the program sooner" I feel kinda studly.
:-) Anyway his show was the same old shit.

7:00 AM, Wednesday - Thursday, March 12th - 13th,
- WHAT AN AWESOME
GUEST. I couldnt believe it. Of course Steve was
being extremely pompous off the air... "Im a
pretty good judge of these sorts of things..." What a
penis. Anyway, we went 3 hours with this dude. Dr.
Cass Ingam. A nutritionist... it was so interesting, I
was barely able to screen the calls. Hell, I wanted to
hear him. It was great. I hope Mary Jo isnt
pissed. She said 30 minutes, an hour tops for guests.
It was the right decision though. Loads of calls and
lots of information. Afterwards I recorded a song for
my CD! Got it done in one night, and a bit of the
morning. "Maybe..." MAYBE this will be a cool entry in
- 10:45 PM -
5:00 AM, Thursday - Friday, March 13th - 14th,
show sucked, his guest sucked, and he got about 8
calls in 3 hours. I'm done writing about uneventful
Steve shows. Meeting later today.

- Meeting #8. I
dont even know where to start. I have less
confidence in myself than Ive ever had in my
life. Its pretty amazing. Somehow he listened to
my show and slammed me. He said nix the Boyles and Dr.
Dick. Outta here. NOW. They arent funny. He
wants me to just do talk. I guess. Stop the production
and talk? Why dont you just take ME out of my
show? Come on Darryl. I have a feeling Im not
gonna be around too much longer. My uniqueness at the
station is how creative the show is (remember the
Other Paper article?) Take that away, and what
am I? I want to entertain. Anyway, it was rough.
Says I need to have about 3 or 4 topics and stick with
them one at a time to get callers. Of course he plays
my Saturday show that is very loose on purpose. Just
to be entertaining. Sunday, when I had 30, yes
30 in 2 hours, we dont listen to it. Then
he says, "and well talk later on how to deal
with callers..." Talk 101 with Dr.Parks. I even asked
him why he ever thought I was talented. Was it just my
production stuff? "Well, production does cover up many
sins..." Ok. Great. Fuck this man, I will not be there
too long. I can hear him firing me right now. (sigh)
ON THE OTHER HAND. Maybe if I really concentrate on
it, I can kick butt and just do straight talk.
Well see tomorrow. But he did give me a turkey.
No seriously, he had a frozen turkey and he gave it to
- 5:30 PM -
2:00 AM, Saturday - Sunday, March 15th - 16th,
1997: SHOW 236
- Boy did I not
want to go on. Darryl had just about ripped my heart
out, and I had no confidence to go on. But once I
heard my opener, I felt it, and I was on. That first
15 minutes, which I know for some reason Darryl
wont want to listen to, was perfect. Finally.
Everything he harped on I corrected, simply focusing.
The show though, ROCKED! I cant even begin to
tell you how great it was. Jesus, just everything
clicked. EVERYTHING! Funny as everything. One thing, I
have to tell the people in the studio to quit talking
over me. Especially John. When I talk, everyone else
needs to shut up. Period. It sounds arrogant, I know,
but Im being too polite with them. I t sounds
like i have no control. POT BOY. Guy calls up at 11:00
talking about pot, and was smokin a bong on the
air. It was the funniest fuckin thing in the
world. He will now be a part of the show. POT BOY. He
stayed with us the whole night! Everytime I went to
him he was funny. Really funny. I got his number, and
will do some stuff with him this week. Pot Boy, it
rocked. Hes my Crackhead Bob. The show was just
too much fun. Yahoo! Let Sunday be cool as well.
Please, please, please...

11:30 PM, Sunday, March 16th, 1997:
- You know,
throughout all of this, Im getting very popular.
A lot of new callers, and very appreciative callers.
And hell, CALLERS! Im concentrating on my voice
and it really is coming naturally. Got into Drug
Legalization again and had a very good show. Hell a
great show. The Lestertorial made a comeback which was
nice. And have had only one call so far about the
of The Boyles.
(Sigh). Some onliners were bummed, but overall no real
reaction. Maybe there will be when they havent
been on for awhile. Or maybe Im just stuck with
all of these tapes. Oh well. But the show went great
and I know if people tuned me in tonight, they will
want to listen again. Then Cannon came in and I was
just depressed again. Producing him, though it truly
is "physically" easy, is just humiliating as hell.
Thats really the only reason I keep doing it, ya
know? Humiliating experiences are good for ya. I
guess. I just sooooooooo dont look forward to
sitting with him and listening to that damn show for 3
hours. God it just blows. How can people listen!?!!
(Sigh) Great weekend again!
