The Annual Leftover Show from November 25, 1998

Seven Second Delay: The perfect antidote for the perfect day.

Foreplay Topics
Ken hatred for the Barenaked Ladies spawns Andy's love for the Barenaked Ladies.

Will to Live-o-meter
Ken crumbles when Andy reveals that the record fair money is divvied up among the DJ's at WFMU staff meetings.

Fatal Flaw
Ken points out they should be doing a freshly baked show before Thanksgiving.


Scraping the bottom of the barrel, four minutes are devoted to ideas that were rejected over the year. Most of them go incredibly well, except for the one concept that later became a full hour show (Radio Word Search vs. Breaking News from May 4, 2005).

'Discourage Alien Invasion' has stayed with me, and I think it's pretty much perfect for a four minute show, although I wouldn't want it to be much longer.
