As some of you have probably guessed, many weeks I struggle to come up with original content for this program. The syndication service behind the show recently told me that telling the story about the time I was asked to leave the Bloodhound Gang’s green room would not be sufficient basis for a two hour podcast.
Instead, it was suggested that I take a tip from some of my alleged “peers” in the world of online radio and invite a luminary or two to contribute what’s known in the industry as a “guest mix”.
The trouble is, I was also informed these guest contributors are only likely to boost listenership if they are exceedingly attractive. The way it was explained to me was “threes and fours don’t want to listen to fives and sixes, they’re only interested in nines and tens.”
Frankly, this is too much arithmetic for me. As far as I’m concerned, you’re all number ones. So we’re back to that story about the Bloodhoung Gang’s green room. Plus two hours of music, give or take.
