XOXO

-In today's installment of "Things That Actually Happened About Four Months Ago, Despite The Fact That I'm Only Talking About Them Now" (TTAHAFMADTFTIOTATN), a radio magazine decided to do a profile of Charles. It is a nice article, though it has a really strange title ("Charles In Charge Sounds Agreeable Accord"). I have absolutely no idea what that means or how that relates to him. It sounds like something poorly translated from the Japanese. Be sure to watch for the key part of the interview, when Charles is talking about his childhood, and the interviewer is suddenly eaten by Mothra.

-Even if you've already seen it, this is a nice article about the PD at WABC.

-If you had a satellite radio company that was about to file for bankruptcy...and, on the same day that word got out about this, you heard that two satellites randomly collided in an unprecedented freak accident...would you consider this a bad sign?

-Happy Valentine's Day! Be sure to have fun with your sweetie and to tip the waitress.

So, for Valentine's Day, the F-Man(Fred Imus) pinned a little HEART to his shirt and told all his female friends "I have a heart on for you"...

CG said...

That Fred is quite the ladies' man ;-)

Ah, Fred is such a sweetheart! TY for the article, CG, I posted it to the OTHER Imus NG, so that most could share. ( invites open)

I met Charles a couple of times and on my first introduction remarked how handsome he was in person. " Well, WE like you!" Charles replied and gave me a hug, then we had our picture taken, I think by Mark Chernoff. Lovely man.

The F-Man may have had a "heart on" for the ladies over Valentine's Day but lately he and Buckskin seem to be headed into Brokeback Mountain territory with lots of "you know, Buckskin, you've got purty lips" comments.

BTW, Fred fans who don't have Sirius Satellite radio but who do have Dish Network can hear Fred's Trailer Park Bash on Outlaw Country (Channel 6063) Saturdays 6 am - 10 am ET with replays Sundays 10 am - 2 pm ET and Mondays 12 am - 4 am ET.

CG, thanks for the article about Charles. I think it's time we elevate him to letter man status. Is he the C-Man or the M-Man?

Al said...

Charles is THE-Man!

...and it looks lik those 2 satellites colliding was a GOOD sign. Mel Karmazin wheeled and dealed his way out of bankruptcy for Sirius-XM!

Loved that article but wish it could have been much longer. I <3 Charles.

And does anyone know details about this book that he and the I-Man are writing together? I would sell three of my unborn children to meet them at a book signing.

CG said...

I'm glad to hear that Fred's still doing well. I hope that he found some love on V-Day...

The Charles interview made for a good article, and I wish it was longer too. I also really want to read that upcoming book...but I think I would only give up one of my unborn children. Would this make me a slightly better parent? ;-)

Queenpat said...

switching topics..anyone hear that hysterical Rob Bartlett B'way piece on A-rod!?

I'm a Met fan, BF is a Yankee fan...(yes, it's a mixed relationship). We both thought it funny!!! Especially the "superegotistic...whatever the rest is" and "I'm LYING!" bits!

Thanks to RB for saving a otherwise boring program, today!

Al said...

As long as Imus insists on having boring, unfunny cast members, he will continue to have boring programs...

Mike said...

Ouch, burn. Al I'm guessing you mean the new cast members?

I happen to find that Tony is much funnier during the random discourse of the show rather than his prepared material. Tony Dolphano and Tony Clayton Powell are usually a scream, but Tony Powell, Public Defender has got to go. The Paul Harvey bits got old quickly, but I do like Paul Harvey's Black History Month sub.

As for Karith, what she has going for her is she's tremendously likable and, as the designated I-Man whipping post of the crew, she generates some sympathy. I'd actually call her the most improved player over the past year though, because her essays are much more infrequent (what, 2-3 times a week now?) and Imus has utilized her more in just the on-air banter.

What I originally thought was just a more crowded cast seems to have developed into more people for Imus to interact with. It keeps the dialogue fresh and makes the great originals (Chuck, Bernie, Lou) less redundant.

CG said...

That was a great piece on A-Rod...
And I'm also glad that Sirius/XM negotiated out of bankruptcy. That was close, to say the least.

Also, feel free to talk about any aspect of the program that you want. Good, bad, whatever. Just don't be creepy. (And none of you are, thank goodness ;)
