The following was intended for a different diary entry a week or two ago and didn't make it.
People living in Texas and other parts of the Great Southwest can tune to Charley Monday morning through Friday morning, midnight to four am on an AM station near you (it's 1080 here, go here and choose Texas Overnight to find your local affiliate). Charley's ultimate goal in bringing back the show (and moving back to 3rd shift) is to gain affiliates from coast to coast. It's a sensational show with an ebb and flow that will probably surprise you if you think you know what a radio show is like. If you call to voice your opinion and contribute to the conversation, you will not be hung up on or chastised if you disagree. You will have time to talk and make points, time to think, and should a commercial come up, you will be allowed to stay on the line and continue the conversation. Charley has boundless politeness and open-mindedness. It's a refreshing show. Charley's setting up a Jones information depository website and I'm trying to get him to set up a Jones Overnight message board.
Interesting bit of trivia about Jones: he was 'the gunfighter' in a Six Flags show for many years. He did the Zoo (KZEW) overnight show for a decade. He was a chemical engineer working for Frito-Lay at one point.
We have rain today. I wish school would just hurry up and start, dammit. I mean, it'll be tough with 19 hours, but I just want it to get here so I can figure out how everything is going to work this semester. Ultimately, I want to get through this and graduate (still a while off now I've changed my major) so I can start my life.
I'm wanting to read The Watchmen. In the September 2001 Road & Track, there is speculation that the new 250+ HP Renesis side port rotary engine might arrive in the US in a Miata within a year or two! Best (only?) reason to have a TV this Fall: Enterprise, the fifth ST series. Best (only) reason to add digital cable on to that: Speedvision and TechTV. Another DVD night: Gone in 60 Seconds, Driven, The Fast and the Furious, Rat Race 2001 (okay so most of these suck, but it'd be fun anyway). 'We are commited to achieving a diverse workforce' = 'we don't hire non-handicapped white males'. One day I will be doing a high speed run up 380 in the middle of the night on my sportbike, listening to 'Blaze of Glory' by Jon Bon Jovi, or riding the twisties down south in the sun and wind, listening to the Autumns' 'June in Her Frost and Fur', or heading out for a 'sport-tour' to Arkansas with a couple of riding friends, or practicing my drag launches in Ennis with Rick and John, or riding out to Del Fresco's with a pillion for a scrumptious dinner, or putting around town in the Summer in a light shower. 8-)
