I have recently become a talk radio addict. It's gotten so bad that one of the four presets in my car is no longer a rock station. Is there any medication I can take for this?

No, but if you're in the Madison, WI area you can listen to me starting 2/25/02 at 2:00 a.m. CST on 91.7 WSUM!

Find us on the web at WSUM and hear me over our really shitty internet feed every Monday at 2 (am CST)!!

Yes, it is talk radio, and sometimes kinda odd. But I promise, if you e-mail in, we'll talk directly to YOU!

2 a.m.? Whose sister did you rape to get that shitty timeslot?

Seriously though, I am working at that time, so I'll see if I can check it out. Are we talking Sunday into Monday, or Monday into Tuesday (i.e., post-RAW)?

Monday into Tuesday.

The reason that the station gave for my new timeslot was simple: They have something against me. And talk radio.

Seriously, the day is taken up by music shows, and talk shows come on later at night (despite the fact that I got fair-decent ratings in the 1-2 p.m. slot last year).

So, they wanted the talk people to take later timeslots in order to flesh out the holes in the schedule left by the music programing. Being a good little minion, I took the time slot. Hell...2 am is better than not on at all, right?

Hey, I'm a former Badger! (Class of 2000). Try to hook up with the local station (I totally forget their letters) with the funky building down on Doty (I think) Street. My friend had the 2-6 slot there, and when she fell asleep at 4 or so, guess who got to play whatever he wanted and talk about ridiculous shit all night? Much better than the no-radio-tower-having debacle that is WSUM.

I'll look it up and see what's going on with the other stations in the area. At this point, I'm guessing that WSUM is probably my best bet, because I've got some degree of seniority.

Plus, we get a tower on the 22nd. But, maybe for next year...

I LOVE talk radio. I NEVER listen to FM anymore. Its nice, because you can actually LEARN things, all the time.

Ever since WSOU went from NJ's Hardest Rock to Just Another College Station, I've been habitually listening to WABC. I feel more informed about the world, even if a lot of it is mostly editorializing. Talk radio is great.

Wow. Monday nights on college radio. You could pretty much commit a cold-blooded murder on the air and nobody would complain. That rules.

So I've been streaming your station for like a half hour now and MAN they're playing some weird-ass shit...Something about "Just listen to me young fellow...What need is there for fish to sing when I can walk and bellow"...or something like that...(EDIT - He later ID'd it as "Fish by Mr. Scruff". Now he's playing "Silver Bells" by Dean Martin.)

That's nothing. We used to have a guy come in and do an hour of straight Frank Zappa every week, and then after his show, gansta rap. Wheee!

After having listened to some of the demo discs we get every week, I'm not surprised that some of that shit makes air...

(And yes, the late Monday time slot is kind of fun for the sheer "anything goes"-ness of it all)

Is "Sly" still on the air in Madison? He got his start on the overnight gig on WIBA back in the mid 80's. He seemed to do ok.

I'm not real sure. I'm not a huge huge radio fan (ironic I know), but I'll check around and see what I come up with (unless any other Madison/Wisconsinites know).

By-the-by, if anyone wants to e-mail in tonight, you can do so at live@wsum.wisc.edu . Hopefully the in-studio e-mail will be working tonight(it wasn't last week). With enough promting, I'll talk about wrestling all night, because I really don't have that much of a show mapped out right now. Mostly filler.

A SPECIAL EDIT: The show will not air tonight due to technical difficulties involving the switch of the station from Internet to FM. Sorry kids.
