"Not a Podcast," starring Justin Montemayor and Mike "The Machine" Marshall will permanently join the Ticket’s Saturday schedule from 10am-12.
I think most Confessors will agree that this has been an excellent pairing. I'm not a giant Machine pop-on fan, but I have really liked his shows with Justin. These guys definitely deserve the gig and a chance to hone their on-air skills.
Justin is an interesting case. Not flashy. Just likable. With a dollop of warmth and humor, he'd be a candidate for a Muser-type show, lower-key, salt/earth host type.
Machine's got something going on with his timbre that is hard for Ticket audio technology to digest, but his show-sound is much better than his pop-on sound, and he's got some sportsy chops and some pop-culture stuff happening without the Jake-as-Argumentative-Dylan vibe.
|"Machine or Justin, Justin or Machine? I just can't decide! I wonder if they have George DiGianni's number."|
Something to look forward to on Saturday mornings now after that certain Tee Box.
My Ticket Confession offers hearty congratulations to them both, and to The Ticket for a solid weekend call.
