After about a month of mining comedy gold in the coveted 5:00 AM Sunday slot, the program director asked me to fill in for Rabbi Mentz one night. Apparently it was Yom Kippur, and even radio Rabbis have to sit that one out.
Even though the Rabbi had a weekend show, he had a primetime slot. This meant that I would be getting my first exposure to a real audience on KFI. I was determined to put on a good enough show to get me out of the agricultural hour and into a real time slot.
Once again, I enlisted the help of my friend Roy – who I should point out, had actually not been hired by KFI. I just kept dragging him in week after week, too terrified to go it alone, and hoping they would eventually just hire us as a team. They never did, but at least we had a good 9 months together, and were able to do ridiculous shows like this one.
In looking over the index for this show, I can see that we repeated some material from earlier shows – not something I EVER like to do. But in our defense, only about 4 people heard it the first time, so I thought, fuck it. This was also the night that we gave away Honey Baked Ham to the callers with the biggest sins.
In any case, it worked. After this show, I was given the first available primetime slot at KFI.
