They don't look anything like each other. Nice try though.

Listening to The FAIL today. I like getting Fish's take on the Mavs. Then the next show came along. I can't recall their name/s--that's how memorable they were. They were going on talking Cowboys when one of the hosts says "I know this is going to be used as a drop, but I don't care..." THAT, Mr. KT, is the sort of stuff that a lot of us find annoying with your station. It's the exact thing you and others at your station claim not to do. That is, to no longer ape The Ticket. "I know this is going to be used as a drop, but I don't care" is at the core of Ticket-ness. You know it. I know it. Your PD, Spittle, knows it all too well. Your coworkers might mentally block it out and deny it, but they know it. We all know it. While I'm in total agreeancez with you and some of the more vocal FAN Fans that The Ticket didn't invent radio; that others (e.g., Stern) were doing a lot of the stuff The Ticket does (uncomfortable wireless--anyone remember Stuttering John?). Pranks, again, wireless/man on the street, prank phone calls, imitations, weird character bits, and a whole host of stuff have been done long before The Ticket popped up. But it's the stuff that is proprietary Ticket that you guys have seemed to "absorbed" to the point that you think it's your own that is so distasteful. The list is to long to go by point by point here.

So glad you got tough on the trolling, Plainsman. I hope MTC keeps afloat for years to come.

If you hope to listen to The Hardline anytime in the next, oh, six to nine months or so, I hope you are tuned into "Better Call Saul" right now.

what is the mix but what we like about white elephant? the chance for random chaos and novel reactions. Bring back the weekend mixes between Tee Box, Orphans, Cirque and the B-Team.

if george left the radio and we could talk about fishing and gardening from 7-8 that would be fine with me.
not happening, but I can dream


I read the stuff over at reddit. Because I keep finding reasons to interact with other humans I happen to venture to various places on the internet. The Pman has his rules, Shaggy has theirs and there are some on the FB pages. Each is different. I don't act the same in the library as I do in the bar. This ain't rocket science.


Pman, you need a button with the drop for the stretching rubberband sound.
Not even the same zip code. Might be in the county.

The Monday run sheet for the Hardline:

Better Call Saul talk.

Tom Petty/Sam Smith talk.

Who Corby played golf with this weekend.

Now that's a show.

Oh man. So MaSS is now doing a "Behind the Mic" series. It's the same EXACT 15 for 15/pulling back the curtain series BaD is doing. What really makes it rich is not only the blatant rip job, but also the fact they've not been on air there even 2 years. Shameless.

So is it possible that The Ticket can rip off other shows too? Just because we hear it first here and see other stations do it doesn't mean that it originated here. I think its been said here before that The Ticket has in fact done this exact thing. Who's to say they didn't hear a similar 15 for 15 type show somewhere else and a CTO passed it along to Dallas. And Cumulus owns stations in other markets so they can easily share info among their own properties freely.

We almost were witness to a ticket personality dying on air today.

I'm with Mike R on "Better Call Saul." I liked it; I'm going to stick with it; but like Mike I was, to use his word, "underwhelmed."

Corby was stunned that anyone could have a lesser opinion of a show than he does. But the first two episodes had some problems.

They were a little slow.

The scene in the desert between the newly-freed Jimmy and Tuco was very unconvincing.

As to Jimmy starting off as a good guy trying to do the right thing, emphasized by both Corby and Danny, they apparently missed most of the first episode with the "Slippin' Jimmy" plot that gets Jimmy and the skateboarders into hot water.

The Michael McKean subplot seems tacked on and brings the show to a halt.

It remains to be seen whether Bob Odenkirk has the star magnetism to sustain a show where he's in almost every scene. Unclear. Maybe.

As I said: It was good enough to keep me tuning in. Great shows sometimes need some establishing episodes that themselves aren't gripping. But it was not the second coming of "The Sopranos" by a considerable shot.

Mike took the right wait/see attitude. This simply flabbergasted Corby.

I agree Plainsman, wait and see on Better Call Saul. I am just happy to see a show with a similar feel and landscape, and familiar characters from Breaking Bad on the air again.

@11:03 - yes, I heard the ticker guy at 2:55 yesterday do his best re-enactment of King Joffrey's death. It was pretty funny and alarming at the same time. Poor guy. I wonder if he'll last at The Ticket.

T4, the thing is, MaSS is a former Ticket show. I invite you to listen to it via stream, for, say, 20 minutes. You will be shocked. You will hear one guy, Scot, literally imitate Mike R, distinct Ticket lingo, and a series of segments identical to your favorite Ticket segments but with a different name. Whenever a Ticket show gets a new segment, MaSS oddly adds it to their show.

I commented on the Ticker guy's brush with death on the air yesterday, but I used his name (i.e. completely forgot about the new rules). It actually took me a minute to realize what I'd done...

Anyway, the point was, there's no way this doesn't make the e-brake this week - unless things take a dramatic turn for the worse for the guy.

I hope this one makes it through, cuz if it don't - well, then I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

T4 In Rockwall said...

I agree with the desert scene. saul grew a lot of balls by taking control of the situation, but at the same time Tuco was too much of a pushover. Both unrealistic.

Corby is so bought in to the Breaking Bad mystique that the characters could have spent the whole show staring at the camera and he would have called it brilliant.

Any fan of Breaking Bad should know you have to be patient. Breaking Bad took it's time and that was made it great. I trust Vince Gilligan. I thought the premier of Better Call Saul was fantastic and I'm looking forward to seeing where it's headed. It will take time. Walt didn't become a drug kingpin over night. Be patient people.

I couldn't get over jeans Tuco was wearing. For something that was supposed to be taking place what 10 years ago those jeans where 5-ish years out of place. Otherwise, I like it. Mainly because I want to see the back story and how everything unfolds, especially how he befriends Mike.
