Chris Norton is the result of three things I encountered in the seventies. One was a band I saw on tv called the Chairmen of the Board whose lead singer sang the words “I got sess’ appeal” in a particular song. The second were some of the amoral single guys I’d see in the bars of Central Florida when I was working in Orlando radio. They had the chains, the shirts open to the navel, drinking rum and banging their best friends girl friends. And the third was a guy who worked weekends at WORJ, the station I was on at the time. This guy had a long, sloppy drawl modulated the way FM jocks did back then to sound deep and sensual. I put those three things together to get the classic dude who thinks he’s hot shit and actually puts most women off. I called him Chris Norton because he needed a generic, vaguely macho name to go along with his sex and self obsessed nature where everything is about getting laid by any chuck who “wants it.” Chris is such a superstar sex stud he sits at a bar surrounded by a velvet rope that is lifted by his friends only if “the chick isn’t hanky.” I was surrounded by idiots like this throughout the seventies in the bars and discos of Central Florida and later Southern California. I just take them to the ridiculous limit, where they spend their time at the local meat market bar, jerking off, watching poem or read machining themselves to be major adult film stars
The Phil Hendrie show is the best part of my day. He's in a class by himself! I love having a BSP so I never run out of comedy genius -new, old, archived classics...theres even online live chats. Are you kidding? I'd pay twice the price for it.
"I've been counting on Phil for entertainment and direction for 15 years. I'd put him up against any CNN or Fox News pundit. My Back Stage Pass (BSP) subscription is invaluable as I can access my favorite bits, phone calls or characters at the drop of a hat. Phil's admirable takes on relationships, politics and sports are shared via his "Phil Only" sessions and the official start to my weekend is chatting it up with Phil and fellow BSP members during his Friday Night Chats. Bang For Your Buck Baby!"
