On the show this morning, I gave away a few tickets to Alice Cooper Sunday night at the Venue at Horseshoe Casino.
"I haven't seen her play since the late 70s at the Hammond Civic Center," I said. "Wonder if she still puts on a good show."
And for the next hour my fill=in producer Angel Jimenez (Ryan went to IU Bloomington for a few days to party) kept handing me notes - "So and so called, said to tell you you're an idiot. Alice Cooper's a guy."
Literally, the Calumet Region can't take a joke.
So Alexis and I are thinking seeing Alice on Sunday night. If you're in local radio, you probably don't make much money but you do have access to a ton of tickets to concerts and stuff. Sometimes you go because you want to. And sometimes you go because you want to cozy up to a big client. Alice sits somewhere in between.
. Where does the Alice Cooper concert fit?
.... Too bad you weren't driving down Indianapolis Boulevard in the wee hours on Halloween. You coulda seen two ghosts. One in a habit, and the one a radio host turning completely white for a moment. Here's how I put it on Facebook.
Cousin Phyllis scared the s#%t out of me at 530 this morning. I looked out the WJOB window at the Purdue Cal center and in the darkness appeared a nun who faintly resembled my mom, who died 26 years ago today in the early morning. "I just saw a ghost," I told you guys on air. Nice costume, cuz. And thanks for checking on me.
