I was thinking about calling in this weekend (or next) and asking their opinion on the Billy quote that Furthur is "boring" (Paraphrasing a bit). The co-hosts are connected with the band.
I would also like to sliip in a plug for the non-fantasy football pool, what the heck, hit a lot of listeners at once. Maybe plug this site..I think that's a good idea but not sure.
Any other thoughts on topics?
The one time I called in that's what I asked them about--Billly's quote about Furthur being a "cover band". The hosts' response was that they thought the quote was taken out of context and that Billy and the other core four are all on good terms with each other. They (David Gans and Gary Lampert) are huge Furthur fans.
Thanks, guess my initial question should be scrapped. Even since I was turned onto anysoldier.com (yesterday) I have been fixated reading all the requests. Seeing soldiers asking for SD cards so they can take picutres really got to me for some reason. I have several cards, it's really nothing for me to send a few. And they want shampoo, socks, batteries and other things I take for granted. Shit I take from hotels and leave in my drawer would mean a lot to them. I was thinking of asking the audience if they would consider sending in anything to make the guys smile. What if we collectively sent in the old camera's we have sitting in drawers with sd cards. Or even our old magazines...I get rolling stones magazine now from buying some tickets, I don't read it too often.
Personally, I'd love to send a special care package...like the line...your deputant (sp) knows what you need, but I know what you want. These guys are homesick, could you imagine if someone sent them a some fresh NY bagels or a real NY pizza or even fresh fruit (I don't know if that works logistically). Even chunky soup and stuff, again the stuff I take for granted. You know when we get a craving for a burger or something, it's not a big deal for us to satisfy our hunger. These guys can't just go to the nearest burger or pizza joint.
And then I want to plug the non-fantasy football pool, I would even ask David and Gary to join (I know they are big baseball fans) or ask David if he'd consider donating something signed as a prize (if I can get him off the air).
Love to plug this site too.
What do you think guys / gals / Tony? This Sunday, assuming they are back live?
