has me working his fields dawn to dusk. My Ticket listening has fallen woefully short the last few weeks, as has my time to write. Two family health issues also in the way, nothing mortal, thanks for your good wishes.
Sorry, know how you crave fresh content.
Get us started with something good, someone -- all within the Rules of the Confessional, of course.
I haven't heard anyone complaining about boys'-weekend-at-the-big-rock-show-junket talk.
Maybe an inquisitive redhead can kick start things around here.

(1) It's starting right now on The Teebox, where Craig Rosengarden is expressly showcasing Eli Jordan in partial expiation for Craig "Junior" Miller's failure to include him in his just-published Ticket Tier Chart (see below). Always good to hear Eli on The Teebox.
Eli was talking about how long he's been at The Ticket. I couldn't quite parse his entire account, but he's been associated with the station a lot longer than I thought, not always in an on-air role. This is his second stint at the station. He said he's been on-air for three years -- I wouldn't have thought it was that long, but the old memory ain't what it used to be.
(2) Country Force starring Eli and Ty Walker will be subbing for the Kickaround this afternoon.
(3) From 5 to 6:30 today, Country Force will be conducting a special pre-MMA show. I believe they will be broadcasting from The Plaza, so stop by.

Now, as to Junior's Ticket Tier Chart, published yesterday on Twitter.
Here it is:
Big Strong Jer
Anyone whose name I don't know

Note the omission of the aforementioned Eli Jordan and also David Newbury. Surely an oversight. And surely a bit.
Other than that, I don't think I have much of a quarrel with this chart. I would move some guys up or down depending on my likes and like-less, but in terms of the actual real objective station pecking order, I think Junior's has the right peckers and peckees.
And the biggest peckers are in Tier One.

Only observation I have at this time is that it must be fairly close by. They were talking about Gordon not making it by noon because he was insisting on tearing out a wall in his apartment to get a deceased rodent, but they made it sound like he wouldn't miss it by much, and he obviously didn't think it would unduly interfere with his broadcasting and radio-brotherly duties.
Water nearby -- George bringing a boat.
Probably that same place they've had it a couple of times in the past -- isn't it out in the Mid-Cities somewhere? I forget.
Conundrum: Fargo, or Junior Coast to Coast?
