Every Saturday WTIT: The Blog brings you a meme calledSaturday 9. It’s not to say that this is a bright idea, but it is what we do. A woman named Crazy Sam started this meme because a prior popular Saturday meme specialist Lola had retired. So, Sam contacted all Lola’s participants and invited us to participate in her meme. Let’s begin!
1. How much do you worry about your future? Since this is the year that the Mayan Calendar says we’re all toast, why bother?
2. Do you believe that anyone could be perfect?Superman. Because he never made any money for saving the world from Solomon Grundy, and
sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him.
Regarding your future, what is the best thing you could hope for? Growing old with Kathy. Although, Kathy seems forever young. So we may never even notice it.
4. What’s the greatest extent you’ve gone to help a friend in need? Probably lending a large sum of money to a close friend. I lent it and never expected it to be paid back. Five or six years later he received a large amount of money and flew into town to visit me. He paid me back in full.
5. What did you do lately that was really brave? I quoted the Crash Test Dummies in a response to a lame meme question.
6. Tell us one thing you wish you hadn’t let yourself do. Get married while I was still a child. But, I do have four terrific kids from the mishap.
7. Who is the wisest person you know? My dad. He can really listen to a problem and have great clarity in his opinion.
8. What’s the most tasteless joke you’ve ever heard? I think the Challenger jokes were really rough.
Q: What were Christa McAuliffe’s last words?
A: “What’s this button do?”
But I still laughed. I think it’s how we cope with unspeakable tragedy.
9. What does your answering machine / voice mail message say? “Don’t fucking ever call here again. Have a nice day.”
We’re glad that you stopped by.
Enjoy your weekend.

After a radio, nightclub and television career of over 25 years, I still write and perform comedy with essentially the same group of guys that I started with over 45 years ago. We began as WTIT: Tape Radio and have kept the moniker ever since. What WTIT is, however, a journal of a group of friends done in a radio morning show format playing the music of the era. We have every recording. We interviewed our girlfriends before “The Prom” or whatever. We shared growing up, getting married and having kids on WTIT. Later it was stories of divorces, new wives or girlfriends and grandchildren.
Just like with any group of friends, people came and left over the years. More than 50 gentlemen have sat around our big round table in what is now a state of the art digital recording studio. We still call it “Tape Radio” because we’re old guys who hate change. This comedy blog has won numerous awards and tells part of the story, but exists mostly to comment on life, politics, music and entertainment as it passed by our virtual window. One of our original guys left in 1985. But in 2013 he returned. So our starting five have three of the creators of WTIT.
Shortly after that on our http://facebook.com/WTITRADIO page we announced when our next recording night would be. Another of the original five had come back to join in. Galloping Gary, our brother, returned (since 1982) to record. The "Galloping Gary Garage Show" returned to WTIT in 2014. So for one special night (the first since 1973), four of the founding five were sitting at our table. The sight where all the guys who came after them had sat.
If you’re here for a laugh, we hope you enjoy your visit. If you’re here because of a cosmic accident where all of the web except this blog has gone, then we simply apologize. To learn more about WTIT visit WTIT.net. (View my
