- 3 hours to do Episode 5. Man
I'm really killin' myself. Lester and Robert team up
on Wheel of Fortune. Very Funny, cool how I put it all
together, but I feel no one really knows how much work
I do. Oh well, more tomorrow...
- 1:45 AM - 3:45 AM,
Wednesday, June 19th, 1996:
- Man, what a great night. Came
in with 4 Top 9 Lists, and Ended up with 5 new Lesters
as well! Forgot I had one already done, so now, all I
need to do for the entire week is: 5 Top 9 Lists, and
2 Boyles!!! Boyles #6 will be Lester calling Steve
Cannon, and Boyles #7 Will be Lester doing a TV
commercial.... The other Top Nine Lists? No idea yet.
Boy, I did 5 Lesters in 30 minutes...I was rollin'...
it was like I was Lester. Cool. Do Boyles #6
tomorrow...I can't wait.
- 2:00 AM - 4:15 AM, Thursday,
June 20th, 1996:
- Wow, can't believe I had the
guts to call Steve. Went into the production room and
got things rolling and recorded the entire
later told me that it took him about 30 seconds to
figure out it was me. Listening to the tape, I think
he's full of it. I say he had no idea until the very
end. Either way, it worked great. Really pretty funny,
and after hours of work, The Boyles #6 was in the
books. Things are going great. I tried to come up with
more Top 9 Lists, but I've really hit a rut. Well,
tomorrow I will do The Boyles #7, and some more Top 9
Lists I hope...
- 4:30 AM - 6:30 AM, Friday,
June 21st, 1996:
- Wow, I'm done. I'm really
starting to amaze myself. I've written 11 Top 9
Lists... And I did a Killer Boyles.....In one hour!
Lester doin' a radio commercial, and he finds out
later it's gonna be for adult diapers and impotence.
Very funny. So I can go to sleep, and this entire week
is done. From now on it's 2 lists, a Lester and a
Boyle a weekend. I can definitely handle that. Christ
what has this show become?

Saturday, June 21st - 22nd, 1996:
- Well this is it. All the work
to kick Canon's ass, and here I am. Tonight it showed.
Killer night, lines jammed on Mr. Jack Kevorkian.
Maybe I just don't listen enough, but Cannon never
seems to have shows this good. It rocked, and people
loved Lester on Wheel of Fortune Even had a request
for The Boyles 1! Man do I love my job. Can't wait to
play them the other Boyles. I get more satisfaction
out of making people laugh at Lester, than I do when I
finish a song. I can't believe I'm writing this. Are
we witnessing a career change? I've got too many damn
goals. My talents just throw me all over the place.
That is great, and I'm lucky, but often I wish I had
just one. This has to sound egotistical and arrogant.
I'm really just telling the truth. Ah well, I'm
tired... Ha, I just noticed the "Killer" night in the
same sentence with Kevorkian :-)
- 10:30 PM - 7:00 AM, Saturday
- Sunday, June 22nd - 23rd, 1996:
- Night started out hilarious,
doing stories on stupid things you've done. I'm afraid
I might have to make it a segment... Not an every show
segment, but kind of like Gone But Not Forgotten....
Something else to use when things get slow. It went
until 3:00, actually until 2:30, and then I was
pressed for topics. Mind Trap was cool...missed a
perfect night by one player. Overall I had fun, it
showed, but lately I've been going through this
dyslexia thing. It's odd, I switch the first letters
of two back to back words. I don't do it often, and
it's because my mind is racing, but it's somewhat
disturbing. And my beginnings, you know: The exclusive
610 WTVN radar weatherwatch forecast....and 610 WTVN
Good Morning, I'm Adam Kontras, welcome to the Late
Show... Saying the first one instead of the second.
Once again it's because I'm going nuts multi-tasking.
And another thing... DAH. Angela never tells me when a
call is a friend. Drives me fuckin' batty! I finally
have to put my hands up and say come on....then she
says it's her husband Chris. That and she's still slow
on the calls. She talks too much. But people seem to
like that as well. Oh well, I'll tell her some time
this week. Tomorrow is day 1 I'm stealing from
- 10:30 PM - 5:15 AM, Sunday -
Monday, June 23rd - 24th, 1996:
- And a successful steal I must
say. Sunday nights always suck, and this rocked. More
stupid stories, and some political talk. It's great
fun. And a lot of listeners the first hour which I
think is great, because Cannon usually (if he's lucky)
gets one caller. And he takes that caller until the
news. Let me make something very clear, I like Cannon.
I really do. But I want this job so bad that I want
him to fail. It's simple competitiveness... and of
course I like entertaining people, and it hurts me to
know that they have to try to be entertained by him.
Ha. Slight jab there. Wow, after my shift Perkins and
Bradley were just raggin' on me royaly. Some
half-hearted just fuckin' with me, but things like:
"Jesus, why don't you talk...all I hear you do is
pre-recorded stuff." Seriously...and "At least you
could be creative, aren't you ever on live?" They have
to be kidding, and most of it was Joe of all people.
I'm being over sensitive I know, but after working so
hard for this show...Christ. We'll see how they are
