    Steve Bosell’s suggestion that Trump travel to Mars during his second term sounds like an excellent plan to me, especially if the crew is able to prevent him from turning the spaceship into a WMD on the return to earth. Thanks, Phil……may you and all of your friends/characters continue to entertain us for many more years to come!

    I love ya man but getting 4 shows and a throwback every week is getting a little old. That’s a loss of 20% of main content weekly. I can get historical shows with my BSP. You’re “tightening my jaw” Hendrie! 😈😅

    And they did at the time. Maybe we’re only realizing it now because we’re so used to the characters and their lines. Remember, the show was for the callers- the people who would tune in and out every 15 minutes and get easily enraged for us- the listener- who was in on it, to laugh at. Phil was so stressed, I think of the stories of him running outside pulling his hair smoking cigarettes during station breaks, because whoever he could get to call in were weak at best. I hear these old shows and how a normal “hour”, around 38 minutes, sometimes he cuts the character short at 20 minutes and talks for the remaining time because no one called in or those who did weren’t good enough to go on air.

    But I know where you’re coming from on this. The long time listener has heard it all and wants something fresh. I don’t know the PHS BSP demographics, but I can only assume the majority of BSPs are newbies only hearing it for the first time.

    ‘The show took a break, this is what we used to do, please call in!’

    My wish is that there will actually be behind-the-paywall shows (“tune in next month for the continuing saga of”:) for specialty characters Elcott, Kenny Slag, Pete Bone, the country dj who gets beat up, etc

      Well said!

      Though I agree with the ultimate thrust of what you say, I don’t really crave anything novel or cutting-edge with Phil. I could literally listen to him read the phone book and riff on people’s names for an hour each day, and I would happily pay for that. Whatever that man puts out is A-ok in my book! I’m an old-time fan from the WIOD days (my dad turned me on to Phil’s show when I was in middle school) and have been through the various format changes over these years. The sheer amount of art, comedy, satire, parody and wit this man produces is worth twice what we pay each month. Just imo.

I understand Phil paid his dues and bottom line I’m fine with whatever Phil wants to do. To quote the Traveling Wilburys “It’s Allright we’re going to the End Of The Line.
