Since today is the TRUE April Fools Day I thought I'd give it a try to call in and talk about taxes.  After 53:28 on hold on the amp line while Ian and Mark (and the girl) chat up a storm and finally take two callers (ignoring the amp line) I gave up.  I was hoping that the show would eventually get back to it's roots and REALLY be a show about the callers, but I see that's not the case.  And since it's not Saturday (as Ian always likes to use as his excuse to keep talking and ignoring the callers) the traffic cannot be blamed.

Anyway, maybe I'll try again in 6 months...

1. Get a bullhorn

2. Haul ass to the studio and protest your dissatisfaction, yelling "MY VOICE WILL NOT BE SUPPRESSED!!"

3. Get some chalk and write "GENE THE CHRISTIAN ANARCHIST WAS HERE" and "LET MY VOICE BE HEARD" on their front porch

4. Throw eggs at the windows

5. Get a chair and some watercolors and paint your titties out front of their house, maybe set an old Victrola record player next to you, blaring some really loud opera music to get on their nerves.

6. Once the paint on your titties is dry, pull out a big fattie, light it up and declare "God damn!!! I love it when a plan comes through!"

7. Haul ass out of there before the pigs come

The "girl" was M7 the new hotter Christian they replaced you with gene. We couldn't have two people ratchet jawing about Christianity.
Why do you use the amp line? I always feel like I ow error a quarter when I use it.
They have been getting a lot of traffic this week. It took them almost a week to read on article on school.

Not their fault. The AMP lines were not routing calls into the studio correctly. The problem has been fixed.

Shhhhhh.......keep it down.

He said he'd call back in 6 months





Scratch that Gene.

Still major probs with the routing deal. Tubes, knobs, wiring and complicated IT stuff still to be done before its fixed. 6 months sounds about right.

I tried calling in yesterday and was never picked up on, but it became obvious that there was a technical problem when Ian didn't pick up on me even after he ran out of callers. It has since been fixed -- I called in on today's show just minutes ago, and not only did I get priority, but even before I was picked up on I got a live feed of the show which confirmed that I was getting through, whereas yesterday the phone just kept ringing with an occasional automated promise that I had been put to the front of the line.

Gene-

We have had some problems with the phones this week. Ian didn't say anything to me about you being on the line, and I am sure he would. So, I must assume that he did not talk to you. If I knew you were waiting on the line, I would have made sure you got on. Please try again.

No one has conjectured that I could quite possibly be a Libertarian posing as an Anarchist trying to pretend to still be a Libertarian; or what I like to call an Anarcho-Hustler.
