Always love to get suggestions for topics from the Confessor. Especially love to hear from the ladies, good to know we have a civilizing influence checking the site from time to time. Liz emails with a thought that segues nicely with the anniversary reminiscing now current:
"In the past twenty years, we've had non-hosts pass through our listening lives. Junior's "what ever happened to..." line in Scattershooting made me think of this.
"For example - back in the days of Fax Fodder and when THL actually took calls, we were introduced to Glenda (God rest her soul), Danny in Lake Highlands (we know where he is), Rogers Hammerstein (probably got the name wrong, but have no idea what ever became of him), BDH (in Vegas now? )...I think you get the point. I'm guessing that several of us will be reminded and remind others of named we had since forgotten."
By the time I got here in 2007, the shows were already greatly de-emphasizing the callers. I can only remember two: Blue, and the crazy Vikings guy ("Viking ________," can't remember his name.) And of course there's Hakim in Frisco who calls the post-game show. Hong Kong Paul, there's another one. And wasn't there some guy, perhaps of Middle Eastern descent, a younger caller with girl problems (i.e., no girl)?
Regale us, Confessors. And my thanks to Liz.
