A good blog adapts with the times and is always fesh and enjoyable. My blog has been influenced by Talk Radio, other Blogs by the audience.
The widely popular interview segment was originally intended as a Mr Beamish vehicle.
We would do a wacky press conference ask about oddities such as grenade fishing or offroad golf and get funny responses. However, I had listened to the great Bob Grant and observed his straight ahead style. He doesn't throw softballs like Larry King, he remains a professional and one learns a thing or two.
While talk radio has expanded nationally it was a NYC phenomena in the early eighties. There was the legendary Bob Grant and a young upstart named Limbaugh. Limbaugh had a NYC only show that featured caller abortions. NYC residents would call and ask to be aborted. This did not play well nationally but we pay tribute to that segment here with troll abortions.
The best show for fun is still the Mark Levin show. Levin is similar to the great Bob Grant but has yet to master the art of interviewing. He has liberals call on a special line and smacks them around with great humor. Much of my responses to the Duck and other trolls are patterned after Levin and Grant.
The Blog Roast bit was a tribute to the Dean Martin Roasts. I used to enjoy watching them on a Friday Night. However, the era of big time Night club style comedians may be over.
