Weird topics get more response

March 1, 2012

A listener of our radio show called to tell us he liked the show we broadcast yesterday on how to train chickens. He said he had trained his chicken to be an alarm clock. That doesn’t sound odd when you think about roosters crowing in the morning. But that’s not what he did. He trained a hen to peck the butt of his dog, causing the dog to yelp and wake him up.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Speaking of radio, we finally got the ventilation fixed in our studio. For weeks, Tracey and I were recording the daily show in the hot, stuffy room, which is lined with thick foam and the size of a closet. There are only so many articles of clothing you can remove at work and still be professional. Today, the air was back on, allowing us to record a show on heating, ventilation, and air conditioning for your outbuildings. Perfect timing.

Oh, we also recorded a show on chicken manure. I’m waiting for the calls….
