How Did I Get Involved?

A couple of years ago, Jay started reading and commenting on the blog of Matt-Man, who lives in Ohio. Over time, they became fast friends and started talking about the possibility of having a Talk Radio show.  They have been airing "I'm With Stupid" on Blogtalk Radio for over two years, now.  It took me a little while to understand what Blogtalk Radio is, but I listen to it on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or, if I can't listen on Sundays, I listen to it any time on the archives at Ihttp://www.blogtalkradio.com/im-with-stupid.

They work on it constantly, trying to perfect it. And, they have been consistently in the top three in the Humor category for the last year.The show seems like a couple of guys, chatting on the phone, with no particular agenda. They have a theme, kind of, for each show, but if someone calls in and wants to talk about something else, that's fine. They're flexible. They do a certain amount of planning, but like to keep it loose and informal.

Somehow, I have gotten roped into doing a segment every three weeks or so in which I, as Dixie Ozark, report the Redneckville News and Commentary.  It's fun to do, but it'll take some work, as I have only done it twice.

If you've never heard of Internet Talk Radio, it's free to anyone who wants to develop a show. If you don't have a sponsor, your show will be on at the non-premium times of day, and will be limited to 45 minutes a day. There are other restrictions, and Jay and Matt appeared twice a week for the first couple of years.  This year, they managed to get a sponsor, which allowed them to go to a premium time slot.

I don't know all the details and probably never will, because I'm old and the technology parade has passed me by, but if you take a notion to listen in, keep in mind that it is a "guy" show, and every now and then, they just can't resist giving in to their inner 15 year-old boys. But, even then,  they are very funny, and I enjoy listening to them.  If you do listen, and they start talking about  "Jaymom," that would be me. 


Stay tuned.
