Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 40 - Chimps in Rehab

Episode 40 was strong. The Ed was at the peak of his powers as he talked about his upcoming elective surgery and called in to the show to scare us with both his big tough man voice and his woman voice. He even said, "I pity the fool" at my request, which was glorious.

In addition to Ed, Face Ventura and the Whale helped me go through the Magnificent Seven greatest calls in sports announcer history. Number 6 was a personal favorite, even though it probably didn't belong on this list.

I also played "Doug on Demand" a phone call with my best friend Doug Newton who tends to disparage the show, but the call had some good stories about his job as a dispatcher on the Colorado State Patrol as well as his admission to getting a tattoo of a lego man. Doug really likes legos.

We also talked a little bit about Olympic hockey and curling, and I played a song to help enlighten people to the rules of hockey courtesy the Mike O'Meara show.

The Vertically Striped Music Recommendation was the self-title album from "The Trampolines" which released in 2005.
