"To Reach [Tonight's Host]..."

A comedic script for an alternative-radio program,
(appropriate phone numbers for callers, per location)
by James Alex Gerard (or what's left of him, at this point)
Original Release Date: 04/25/2010 (08:45)

Disclaimer: This a total, nonsensical, demented, childish and satirical tribute right off the top of my aging head. Because I needed a good laugh -- so I created one. Please excuse (or ignore. preferably) the obvious, glaring, idiotic, nonstop stream of geographical errors that follow. I'm a creator, not a geographer! Thank you! And, please note, the phone-number narrative is longer than any proceeding segment could possibly be.

Note that the particular host can vary by day, so the script allows for the electronic "find and replace" of the wildcard variable [tonight's host] with the name of the host for that night.

Author's Message

This is another of my parodies based on late-night alternative talk radio. I did a spin on "Coast To Coast AM" with the "callers west and east of the Rockies" phone-number bit, and decided some program needed such on a worldwide basis. This comedic bit is done as a tribute, and is meant to be taken in a nonsensical vein. The geography doesn't matter, because I know it's inaccurate.
