My Administration has these two issues at the top of our list of Shit to Fix.

You can take that to the bank, less my 25% cut!

Quote from: aldousburbank on August 05, 2022, 12:14:18 AMI just heard George's intro on my local station. I'm pretty sure that it's not my imagination that George was sounding extra glitchy tonight. I haven't listened for some time so maybe this is his normal. He sounded almost like he's been taking enunciation lessons from sleepy joe.
I've felt for a while that since getting ragged on here for his sloppy enunciation in his intro ("near the Pacifuh kohshun", "acrossuh nation, arounda world), he's been extra careful with it. 
And then it all goes to hell thereafter. 
Also his 'somewhat forked tongue' seems more to the fore: 'th' for 't'.

Besides the mumbling and incoherence Dave seems to rely on replays more often than normal. Especially when he is confronted by open lines. I'm not sure if no callers or he is worried about a new caller and confronted by having to listen and, worse, respond. He also continues with his weird problem of not getting common phrases correctly. Even his own! Other night he claimed time speeds up when you're young. Normally his oft repeated musings claim time (seems) to speed up as one ages, which is the normal experience. On the good side- in the rare case he allows a caller he lets them rant and drone on. He also allowed Whitley to say the 'H Word' and graphic, for the family-show, description of his alien prone/rape. And funny that callers and guests always still mention Art.

Listened to a bit of last night's last hour. Norry losing it. Same, normal stuff applying every scenario to a move or tv show but still forgets details of the show he is references. He tried to get some 'get off the shelf' lady to name the Jetson's dog by singing the song. Then he thought Elroy was the dog. Then he, or TOMMEE, googled and he came back with Astro as the dog's name to prove his knowledge. He also kept talking about his chivalry for opening a door for a woman carrying boxes at the Post Office. And mused about "put your oxygen mask on first" when flying. So repeating the stewardess spiel as riveting radio.

Some lady called in with a convoluted story about Bally's Fitness turning into LA Fitness and getting rid of the jogging track and then her subscription due to her suggestion to an 'older man going over numbers' but the 'young people 'in black tshirts' said 'no more track.' Even though the track saved her by helping her avoid dog bites and poison ivy and heart conditions. Or something.

Joorch informed guest last night that he would like to interview Jeff Bezos. "And you know what one of my first questions to him would be?"
Guest does not know this.
Joorch wonders if guest knows that Bezos started out selling books out of his garage? Guest does know this.
Joorch produces his dramatic, probing question.
"I would ask him if, when he started out, he had any idea what it was going to grow into."

Does he really imagine that everyone who ever met/interviewed Bezos has not asked that question?

Mention of the future leads Noory of course to The Jetsons. No flying cars, surprisingly. This time it's flat screen TVs hanging on walls that has boggled Jorch's tiny.
Then, apropos of nothing, he asks the name of the Jetsons' dog. Guest can't remember.
"It's in the song", prompts Joorch. "Sing the song."
"Meet George Jetson", begins the guest.
"Elroy!" declares Joorch. "The dog was called Elroy!"
"No", says guest. "Elroy was the son. 'Meet George Jetson, his son Elroy...' "
"You're right! Now I don't know the name of the dog!"
Luckily, the guest was able to pluck Astro from the memory banks, and we were able to move on from this pointless and irrelevant exchange.

Apologies to Albrecht for repeating the Jetsons tale (tail). Read thread before posting!

Never apologize, it is a sign of weakness*  Beside repeating comments on the lameness of Norry is in keeping of the spirit of GNS because all he seems to do is ask the same questions over and over to each guest- and often the same questions to the same guest in same show! Amazing and riveting radio.

* actually this is not the best advice in all circumstances but Marion said so, and in many circumstances it is good advice. Certainly better than a nuanced/fake apology.

He's lying about the first question.  It will be "How are yeeeewwwww?"

If Noory really wanted to ask a good Jetsons trivia question he should ask what year George Jetson was born.
The tv show is set in the year 2062 and George is 40 years old there...

wouldn't he be Dexter Monterrey in that year or time-line? I forget when that singularity happens. Talk about end times.

I think Dexter is Noory's future incarnation centuries in the future, according to Dentist Bruce Goldberg anyway...

Last night Noory also told a tale about his little 3 year old great-grandaughter.
He was amazed when he saw here licking on a popsicle treat and then she offered to share it with another little girl.
He wondered what little girl would ever do that?
So he figures she must be very special, probably because she inherited some generosity gene from Noory...  :o

He "gives a twenty" when he sees a homeless person (frequently claimed.) But also relies on TOMMEE (he knows this town) or drivers to restaurants. Of which several get bit from bad stock or digital coin speculation.

And Norry was supposedly some kind of spokesman for the Navy at some point. He always bravely details how served but he 'got out' right before the First Gulf War but is frequently thanked for his service. I want to say he was land-based Navy also though the images of McHale's Navy type of situation come to mind.

I did not listen but C2C apparently had the Egg and Vitamin/Mineral animal necropsy expert on last night. Price of eggs has skyrocketted- has his health advice changed? Shut-ins and people on a fixed income with health problems might have problems eating so many eggs! Will the promised C2C Health Foundation come through to help out these listeners? Is the promised Hawaii Studio converted to an incubation facility to provide free eggs?

I listened to a little.  He only advocated eating three eggs at a time. Soft, runny yolk.  He was also muttering and mumbling more than I remember.  Sounded geezerly.  Like George's more high pitched voice lately (or maybe he's not producing the low overtones.)

Could be he is not eating enough eggs. Or the supplement pyramid schemes (allegedly) and not performing as well as the napkin drawing pitch seemed so cutting costs by less inflated egg eating? Or maybe the recent news items hitting close to home and some hosts, guests, management worried about an audit, knock on the door by some polite agents with some papers allowing them to look around and 'take some notes,' etc?

Sounds like Tangy Tangerine Time.

We are all adults here. I think we can address the problem outright. Clearly JBW's broke the bass system already drastically fractured by the thunderclaps and Ross Mitchell intros and iHate just decided not to replace the mic and audio system. "Dave, here's the new contract. Sorry the audio bad but we are building you a Hawaiian Studio so don't you worry. Here's a twenty you can even give to a homeless person."

And just for fun, he said it twice!
