WKRP Portland

19 Sep

A few days ago I posted about my opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of torturing the masses via radio, and it finally happened! I must admit I was a little nervous, but the host assured me it would all work out. He advised me to drink hot tea, and send him topless photos to calm my nerves.

Quite a few people showed up in the chat room, and I even had two callers. Granted, one of them was my parole officer asking me why I haven’t checked in with him in months, but still! The show was great fun, and I’d totally do it again if asked.

Some of you mentioned wanting a link to the broadcast since you weren’t able to make it. You can listen to the full show here.

For those who want to explore the links which were mentioned in the show:

    As a postscript to the show, I just want to say that I’ve never had that much fun alone in a room with my clothes on EVER!!! Now, having done almost 3 months of shows, I have to say that this episode is still my favorite, and always will be…

    Unless you say “Yes!” to another round of on-air Fact or (pulp) Fiction.

      I come second only to self-gratification? Wow, I’m honored.

      And yeah, anytime you’re man enough to take me on, I’m game.

    First of all, shirtless and with a pumpkin, you are incredibly sexy.

    Secondly, as you’re not in Cincinnati (just one more thing to be grateful for), but rather, I believe on the West Coast, that should be KKRP. But then, when you start getting Ks together like that, it gets a little weird.

      I should have talked with you before I wrote this post! You’re a radio connoisseur! What’s your consulting fee?

    I admit I didn’t listen to the whole thing but you sounded great! But I have to say it. That photo makes me think of a really naughty joke about Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater.

    • Jen and Tonic 09/20/2012 at 11:56 pm #

      I’m sure you have a plethora of dirty jokes, and someday I want to hear ALL of them.

      Thanks for listening 🙂

    Had to liten to the recorded version, but you did great. I didn’t even skip through it, I swear.

    • Jen and Tonic 09/19/2012 at 5:23 pm #

      So you heard the part where I said I wanted your love child?

      • calahan 09/19/2012 at 5:34 pm #

        Oh yeah. I’m dropping it off at the post office tomorrow, as a matter of fact. Look for it!

        • Jen and Tonic 09/19/2012 at 6:02 pm #

          Shall we call it CalaTonic or Jenahan?

          • calahan 09/19/2012 at 6:59 pm #

            I thought we’d already decided on Mayonnaise Boo Boo Child.

    I listened to the whole show…pretty cool Jen! Congrats. 🙂

    • Jen and Tonic 09/19/2012 at 4:52 pm #

      Thanks for listening, Wendy! Your support means a lot to me 🙂

    Great interview, Jen. So when are ya creating your own show on the Wireless?

    • Jen and Tonic 09/19/2012 at 4:17 pm #

      Thanks! I’ve toyed with the idea recently. Are you just suggesting this because you want to continue to hear the sweet sounds of my voice?

  7. Just Rambling 09/19/2012 at 11:54 am #

    No… Wait. I meant “good for you”.

    • John the Aussie 09/19/2012 at 1:40 pm #

      It’s okay Jen, I’ll feed ya.

    • Jen and Tonic 09/19/2012 at 4:15 pm #

      Sadsies! I thought you were going to reward me with something to eat.

      Also, where have you BEEN?!

      • Just Rambling 09/21/2012 at 9:28 am #

        Oh no, I thought you didn’t like food! 😛

        Umm, away! Away, away, away! But I’m kind of back!

  8. Just Rambling 09/19/2012 at 11:54 am #

    Wow! Just wow! Food for you!
