Radio, Radio: The Turkey Day Edition

Hey, kids!

I will be gracing the airwaves (or torturing them, depending on your perspective) this Friday for 4 exciting minutes on WAMU's Metro Connection show.

iTurkey will be listening. Will you?

Hear of my love for all things turkey-riffic!
Thrill as I tell stories of holiday screw-ups of my childhood!
Waste 240 seconds of your life!

Yeah, I'm a little like Orson Welles.
Later in life, less talented, fat, wine commercial Orson Welles, that is.

As always, you can listen live on your radio here in the DC area at 88.5 FM, or online at WAMU.org. The show will be archived online so, if you miss me, you can call up my commentary at your leisure and then remember why you don't really miss me all that much.

But really, Metro Connection is a pretty cool show and WAMU is a damn fine NPR station, so you should listen in. 1-2 p.m. on Friday. I'll be on right before the end of the hour, doing my thang and then fading away like a slightly gimpy gorilla in the mist.

Thanks for listening. Thanks for supporting me. And thanks for supporting public radio!

Love the tiny earphones. No doubt listening to "Turkey in the Straw." I'll try and catch your show.

Rarity - does that mean they're allowed to continue wearing one sock? (This will, of course, give them one very cold foot.) :-)

Cube-chitsa - I'm such a techno-boob, the earpiece is poorly drawn in MS Paint, but you can't really tell how bad it is unless you enlarge the photo. Hope you get a chance to listen - it'll be online in the archives forever. I do the occasional 4-minute thingy for WAMU. It's a total hoot.

That bird looks like it has a cochlear implant...

Ooos!

My bad!

But wouldn't that look funny though, everyone sitting there suddenly with toes uncovered on just one foot...

damn, I missed it... do they broadcast online?

Merujo said...

Ah, you have not missed it, my fine friend! It will be broadcast initially this Friday, the 25th, and, after that, it will be available on the WAMU Metro Connection archives forevah. I'll have a link to it on my blog by Friday evening.

Yeah, I suppose a turkey with earphones is sort of cool. But, it pales in comparison to the terrible glory of Cosby Cat!

Merujo said...

Jeezus, Cosby Cat still messes with me, big time. Wuzzawuzzawuzzameowjellopudding!

Cool. Knock 'em dead, you know, figuratively. ;]

Congrats on the recurring gig! I do, however, have an indelicate question. I am curious. Do you own your pieces or do they? And, taking it further, if 'they' owned it, would that mean I and everyone own it, seeing as it's "public" radio.
