The day before Thanksgiving is coming, and it’ll be show day! Come to think of it, we had a show the day before Halloween too. And we’re also up on the day of Christmas and the day of New Year.I’m starting to feel like the new guy who gets stuck with all the crappy shifts. Who makes these schedules?
We’re going to have a delightful cohost on the day before Thanksgiving, or else we’re not. He’s promised to try, but no promises. Because I know what fury he’ll have to face from the adoring public if the weather doesn’t cooperate or if he gets distracted at a roadside rest area or there’s something good on TV, I’m going to keep his identity a secret. And his gender.
I may need you to forsake your pumpkin pie making to call in and interrupt my uncontrolled weeping.
UPDATE: OK, it’s safe to say it now… it’ll be Jeff Weiler, host of the ever-popular Happy Feet show (Sundays 9 to noon)! Even though the weather might be a little stinky, he’s going to most likely absolutely be here nearly almost for sure. 60% of the time it works every time.
Sure, the guy has good taste in a wide variety of music. That’s cool. But something that really sets him apart is that he’s one of those people who seems to have hung onto every friend he’s ever made — and he seems to have made a lot of them over the years ’cause he’s a smart guy, funny, with a solid gold heart that’s the size of the head of a baby. (That’s where the similarities with Kilroy end. What, you people never read Tennessee Williams?)
