Sunday "into" Monday, June 14-15, 2009
(who also runs the Australian site
Haunted Down Under),
stayed in contact with me mostly via Private Messages in the chat room.
We settled on June 7th, but that evening technical difficulties canceled that evening's broadcast,
so it was moved to the 15th
(midnight eastern time, so still mid-evening June 14th for me, pacific time)
Rusty clearly is the main host; this night the show was co-hosted by
(Mama Lisa, in the chat room).
Rusty and I had initially arranged my coming on at 9:45pm
I came into the chat room around 8:45 or so, and Rusty dialed me up just before the show started.
I was introduced in around 9:10pm.
Unlike the two
previous para-x shows,
is a bit more fluff.
Rusty had previously indicated to me we'd be playing a Name The Movie/TV Theme game, at which I was far less apt as I'd anticipated.
Some of the selections were remarkably esoteric; some to shows I watched a lot, but when they were on: pretty much the "only" way to know all the clips would be to watch
TV Land channel 24/7.
In the chat room, Lady V guessed right nearly every single one.
Amusingly, some of the themes would have lyrics, eliminating any guess work as the first words would name the show.
Sometimes the intros to some themes were unrecognizable
(I only managed to guess Fraggle Rock as within the intro the dog's name Sprocket can be heard).
Regarding the show itself, I'm not self-conscious, but with two hosts it's sometimes a little tricky to toss in a timely quick riff or quip.
I tended to make some of my jokes typed out both in the chat room and within the Skype chat.
Also as a guest was Sal of the famous and very haunted
discussing much of the
The three hour show went by rather quickly.
With a half hour to go, Sal had to leave early, apparently having been up all day.
As it was not even yet midnight, I was able to stick around for the entire broadcast.
Once off-air afterward, Rusty and Lisa and I spoke for a bit on Skype.
Rusty confirmed the show would be podcasted, so I can provide the link when it's available.
