Indeed, we are woo-woo sisters! So let me get this straight-- the pre-programmed preamble for each caller appears to be getting longer and longer:
"It's an honor, just an honor to be talking to you. Wonderful show, you are the best host in the UNIVERSE maybe even..... how are you? (Fine) I've been a listener for blank years back when blank was broadcasting from blank..."
ME (ASK YOUR FUCKING QUESTION)
And the preamble for the guest is:
"It's an honor, just an honor to be on your show. You are the best host in the nation and this show has done more for the world than Jesus Christ. This show started my interest in the paranormal back when blank was broadcasting from blank...."
and then before every question:
WHAT A GREAT QUESTION! That is something I treat in chapter 5 of my book (TITLE) ?which you can find on my website (LINK) and I get hundreds of emails a day asking the very thing you are asking. (MINUTE PIECE OF ACTUAL INFORMATION) I have no answers, of course, but we can surmise that the answers are being kept from us by (aliens, elite, government, religious authorities, media)
On the 20th the guest, Jeffrey Farrell, complained that the producers called him that very afternoon to be on the show. That was a Wednesday, not Open Lines Friday, not a TBA night. AND...AND...cold fusion had no hook in the news that I'm aware of. Did you see anything? So are they scrambling for people to talk to the host because Noory can't carry the show without more people?
Typically, radio stations take care of this by inserting what they rudely call a "Hole"--a woman whose job it is to say how sweet and wonderful the host is and to laugh uproariously at their jokes, like Robin for Howard Stern, only not as sassy. No sooner do these words come out of my keyboard than I recall Tom Danheiser having an onair conversation with George recently. This may be part of the format change that's coming.
The show is having more and more padding and less and less substance over all, would you not agree?
And if you do, could it be that the Noory flavor of Coast is a caricature of the old show and has lost so much respect they can't get a serious scientist to appear any more. And why would they after hearing Noory say the audience couldn't handle a (wonderful) description of the solar progression by a man who made his bones converting scientific concepts into layman's language! You know he won't be back.
