— Ace Jeff and Bill seem to be making noises about quitting their radio show.
Jeff seems to be suggesting he's going to stop blogging entirely.
I hope Karol and I aren't completely awful on the Internet cough "radio."
Our basic plan is to just go in there and discover we're natural broadcasters.
We don't have a Plan B, so if Plan A goes into the shitter, we may be hangin' up our spurs two or three weeks from now, too.

The month began with the april fool's joke gone wrong and ends with a preemptive quitting of the radio gig.

Just hoping you got the names reversed.

And Old Coot, aren't you supposed to be off stalking somebody?

And I'm not quitting posting. Just taking it easier for a bit. Which, considering the minimalism of my posts to begin with will hardly even register to the naked eye.

And Jeff has the nice commentors. (N.b.: I spend very little time at his site.) Hopefully Ace’s regulars will cut him and Karol a little slack in their radio efforts.
At least at the outset. As long as they’re not totally, provokingly sucky.

"Having a show" means saying just enough to keep the ball rolling. People want discussion and interaction, not ALL ACE AND KAROL, ALL THE TIME.
Also, things that are funny in writing aren't so funny spoken; so approach humor carefully: you might not be as funny on the radio as you think.
I love Jeff and Bill, but the one show I listened to sounded like an SNL skit gone bad within the first 2 minutes. Don't go there.

We're not going to force jokes.
We are going to let the guest be the star. Unless they're a bit of a dud.

Not to say that it's extraordinarily hard to do a one hour show, but it's a bit of work, and it don't exactly pay well. I mean, unless you like getting paid in random compliments and vitriolic insults from a bunch of random internet people. Someone tell me where I can spend that currency. (Perhaps it'll buy me a roll in the sack with Old Coot's old lady, but really, what wouldn't?)
That being said, it's also fun, Ace. Depends where you want to go with it. Media empire? Fun pastime? Streaming internet radio groupies? Getting close to Karol in a tight little radio booth? The possibilities are what you make it.
BTW, Nordicgirl's comment isn't completely right, but it's prescient enough.

Jeff asked for people to help with that and a few of us did offer. But SOMEONE must have vetoed that idea.
Too bad. I would have enjoyed doing it and I have time to do it.
Now that I think about it, I think I need to get a real job.

I would think that the concern wouldn't be that you over-rehearsed but rather that you weren't prepared.

Yes, that is the producer's worry, too.
We will do pre-interviews... lightly. I will find out what is most animating them, what they really want to talk about, and then Karol and I will bone up on that so we can ask interesting questions.

You're kidding, right? The only reason we are regulars here is so that we can find reasons to call each other retards.
If you weren't such a retard you would have noticed that by now.

Wait, was that volume-inappropriate?

Catwoman: "Lucky Pierre. The world's greatest and luckiest criminal attorney. He's never lost a case."
Batman: "Is it a toll call?"

Exactly what kind of guest is gotten?
And for Bill & Jeff's hour, what is the estimated number of listeners at any given time?
I'll hang up now and listen to your answers.
