Yeah. It was during the first hour with food safety guy Jeff Nelkin. A listener called in an said he was in the restaurant business, so George says, "hey, thats right up your...baseball." No correction. No self effacing humor. He just plowed on through. I seem to recall Bruce Willis shooting someone who had screwed up the "raining cats and dogs" line because it had given the person away as being a terrorist. I ain't saying George is terrorist, but he is a screw up. I'm also sensing a little tension between George and producer Tom. Very low frequency. Just below the radar.
And whats the point of using a tired old phrase like "that's right up your alley", when you can blurt out something more interesting like "that's right up your baseball"? Huh? What? Classic George.what? did he really?
I've never heard that expresssion before. How about up your football? Or it could be expressed even better, up your soccor, or to be inline with most desciptions, suckor?
I found your last comment interesting about the low frequency tension. I know from reading the forum, that you seem to listen many nights. What caused you to notice this? Do you have any examples? I always that George had total control over the show creatively, but after reading the letter posted on this forum, it appears he does not.
I listened to Brad Steiger last night and as always thought it was entertaining. After all, he has so much information to provide that the host would not have to be in a lead position. I did notice this, however, for next weeks schedule, there are not a lot of Halloween or paranomal topics. This is Halloween leadin week, and that is supposed to be the holiday season for creatures and topics of the night. There is EVP's next week with Art, but I do not think the financial show with Katherine Austin Fitts counts. I enjoy her shows, but I would just have liked more spooky topics.
