Show host appreciation Day

I'n Honor and recognition of Dale's anniversary.

I thought I'd put up a funny post to let you know what we go through every week.

5 Stages of show creation.

1 -Denial- Not again!?
"This can't be happening to me."

2 -Anger- Feelings of wanting to fight back or get even.
"Why me? Dammit!"

3 -Bargaining- Bargaining often takes place before writing the show.
“Maybe the responsibility will go away”

4 -Depression- Overwhelming feelings of hopelessness, frustration, bitterness, self pity.
“Nobody cares, pal, do the show.”

5 -Acceptance- There is a difference between resignation and acceptance. You have to accept the show, not just try to bear it quietly.

Get help. You will survive. You will heal, even if you cannot believe that now, just know that it is true.

Any donations of muscle relaxers, sleep aids good booze and/or an nice bottle of Red would be greatly appreciated.
"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." - Winston Churchill

" A dog will look up to you, A cat will look down on you, but a pig will look you straight in the eye" - W. Churchill

Re: Show host appreciation Day

Our hosts are an inspiration to me. If everyone would volunteer their time and energy to good causes like OHD and Fish do, this world would be a much better place. No good deed goes unnoticed, or unrewarded.
Thanks guys.

Re: Show host appreciation Day

Thanks to everyone for their support. I think I'd have to say my show's creation process is more like giving birth - WITHOUT DRUGS.

Those of you that have had the joy of being a part of that process (or listened to Bill Cosby's tales of such) will understand. And I have to admit I love some of my kids more than others. But they're all mine to share with you.

I'm glad you enjoy listening in and that you share the love of our strange and glorious music. My favorite donations are lots of listeners, especially new ones. Spread the love.


Happiness is a worn pun!

Re: Show host appreciation Day

I remember doing the Aural Moon 10th anniversary party "live" for 19 hours. That was such a laugh but tiring. Jamforte must have been even more exhausted because he had all the gear to look after but we DID have a great time.

I have a vague recollection of Jam and I singing along to The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band's "Canyons of your mind" at one point. I think the buckets of red wine played a part in that.

Kudos to ALL our presenters here on AM. You ROCK!!!!
