Art used to say this once in a while. "Its entertainment folks." I never utilized Coast as a source for facts. I listened for fun.
Don't think about all those things you fear. Just be glad to be here.

What Sean said.
Yep, that's entertainment.
My choice? All the way down the rabbit hole.

The more outrageous callers were some of the most enthralling & hypnotic & Art could pull it off.


Now it's just "business is business"; no imagination; the fun is gone.

I think CCrane made out like a champ in Art's time; I hope those folks had a good retirement program.
RIP Zetaboards

I heard about this the other day on FB and someone said something that totally made sense. They mentioned how difficult in general it was for callers to get through yet JC seemed to have no problem connecting whenever he felt like it. Yep! If it was faked (and I believe it was) then it was a great fake and I enjoyed the heck out of it. Art always told us to take everything with a grain of salt.

I still think J.C. was originally Arts good friend and radio man Rasch Lembaugh or however you spell his name.
