In Between Diapers Radio Hour!

Our radio show went on the air on 92.1 FM WVLT without a glitch! Big Rick and I drove out to this little radio station in Vineland, NJ and did our show. We brought Rick's laptop filled with sound effects and our killer intro, the 2001 Space Odyssey theme dubbed over with weird shit like exerpts from the Hindenburg disaster, movie clips such as "As Good As It Gets", "Weird Science," "Caddyshack," "One Flew Over The Coocoo's Nest" and "Office Space". Rick and I sat around this tiny table in the studio, put our headphones on and spoke into microphones while a guy with the station, Matt, manned the soundboard and took phone calls.
We came back from the commercials to do the news, a sketch I wrote similar to the Daily Show and SNL's Weekend Update. I wrote about the war in Iraq, Kim Jong-il's 65th birthday, some crazy lady in Oregon who had sex with an 11-year old and made Rick talk about Anna Nicole Smith and some sports stories. The news section went very well. I got to do a killer Larry Flynt impression.
When we came back from our second break, we ran the Sphincter Blast commercial, then thanked Milt, Justin, Tara, Chris and Lonny. We also gave a few shout outs to Jimmy Graham and Steve Trevilese. We ended the show with banter about some polls and stats Rick pulled from Maxim Magazine.
All in all, our first foray into radio was awesome! Though there were some minor problems, we could iron them all out before our next show. We totally rocked!
