Quote from: albrecht on August 31, 2022, 11:51:53 AMThe other morning early they had some guy on NPR talking ants. He was strangely enthusiastic about them. But, at the same time, admitted necessity to kill them sometimes. He had a theory, which I've heard before, about 'allowing' one nest and killing others because eliminating all hives will result in new invasions. Sorta like allowing colonias, I guess. But reminded me and I thought I wonder if this guy was, or knew, the 'ant guy' from Art Bell strange people open-lines who decided to 'follow an ant' 'just because he wondered 'what they do all day.' Ultimately I seem to recall that the ant bested him and went down a storm drain and he couldn't follow. Weak but good, but strange, effort.

Quote from: Roswells, Art on August 31, 2022, 12:51:20 PMI remember that show. It also had a someone call in who ate rocks from his yard. Art specifying the caller's preference for "yard rocks" made me laugh. I'm inspired to listen to it again. Maybe it's the October 21, 1997 Weird Person Line show.
Quote from: albrecht on August 31, 2022, 04:19:36 PMThough he was, possibly, wrong on a lot of issues he was GREAT on radio. He knew how to draw out a guest or caller. One quote I mention, because telling genius: "the Dental----Mafia?" That hooked you instantly by the pre-NPR uptalk but the pause, as is himself pondering. Then leaves the listener 'wtf' there is a dental mafia? And was a random bit during some unrelated show subject. That the genius let the show flow.
Quote from: Roswells, Art on September 01, 2022, 01:06:47 PMI listened to the show. It was really good; Art was in the zone! Even taking care with upbeat bumper music and cleverly dropping Ross Mitchell in only after the pianist zips up and down the keys in I'm So Excited, for example. One caller said he might have been abducted by aliens but didn't want to talk about it. haha. There did seem to be a commercial slid in there though. The caller was selling really expensive masturbation machines. Like $2300-$3500 in today's money expensive. Art gave him an 8 out of 10 on the weirdness scale. Is a man selling sex toys that weird? I bet it was one of Art's HAM buddies.It looks...sturdy. Apparently, that's the newer model. According to the caller it was the size of a large briefcase back then. It looks like it should have a chute where you shovel the coal in to power it.I don't recall the "dental...Mafia?" part but I know what you mean. I'll be on the lookout for it.

Somewhere also there is KFI's (LA AM Radio station) whole day archive. I forget what Hendrie did that ACTUAL day and following but soon after, in Hendrie fashion, developed Fajeen character, I think.
Quote from: Jackstar on September 11, 2022, 01:07:23 PMI was there. It was 3 days of, "I can't believe it. It was much better than Cats."THREE. DAYS. Condor not included.

Quote from: Jackstar on September 11, 2022, 02:17:36 PMI'm told that in some timelines, it wasn't empty--they were hiding. "Cowering in place," they called it. 58D!!
