Episode 44: Pilots: March 5, 2019

32 minutes

Blade is still with RD at his home following the earlier recording of the standard radio progrem. His Jazz Overnight sounds very sleepy now though. He entertains the people about how he can't remember most of their old episodes, unsurprisingly. However at least he's not drinking right now. Small steps and all.

Since RD has been encouraging listener participation for this show's incarnation, Zapp Fabian suggested reviewing an old episode (:04). So RD takes a look at the pilot, all the way back in 2005. (:07)

  • The audio quality remains in high phone-buzzing over-modulated fidelity.
  • "You know."
  • The progrem was originally started before their appearance on Get In The Ring Radio...which they killed off, sending the original podcasters off the Internet.
  • RD sure talked a lot back then, at least compared to "greenhorn" Blade and in talking about WC. 
  • Someone reviewing it at the time thought of it as a "17 minute voice IM. " (:17)
  • RD links current Sunny to Maude back then. This gives Blade a coughing fit. I hope he doesn't cough straight into RD's microphone. 
    The Once and Future Bea
  • RD forgot who Clumsy Girl was. Don't feel too bad, I forgot too.
  • Neither likes how they sounded then. (:13)
  • RD still doesn't watch much of Raw.  
  • Young RD had a Tivo from 2003. 
  • Blade was partying hard at Young RD's age of 36.
  • Tim Conway and Tom Wopat are still alive...for now.
  • RD wants to ask people about Dorff. (:17)
  • Young RD: "How did we get on Don Knotts?" RD: "That's a question you'll ask a lot, RD."
  • Kerwin White was discussed a lot, for obvious reasons. (:21)
  • So too the Boogeyman.
  • Revenge of the Nerds came out in 1984. 
  • The two are not used to their old voices talking about Gooker nominees in August. (:26)
  • RD was sad he didn't make a Heidenrich Energy quip. "I'm really confused...What is wrong with you, young RD?"
  • RD is surprised Blade did not make a trashbag reference.  (:28)

Blade wants to makeup haiku for the episode, though oddly he doesn't do so here now. RD is surprised people still wanted to listen after, or paid to listen after, either then or now. I believe Vince says the same thing of his own product every day instead of relating to the middle class.
