If I'm On The Radio Would Anyone Want To Ask Me Questions?



So the other night I ran into a radio personality that reads my blog. He knows my secret identity through a friend.

He never comments for some reason but he reads it. Of course he asked, "Are you really like that Dr Zibbs character?"

"Character". Oh that was rich.

Anyways, me being all famous and shit, he said he thought it might be interesting to interview me on his morning radio show. I said I would do it but now I'm debating it. Would anyone want to call in and ask me questions if I do it? Or you could call in and tell everyone how much you love my blog. I don't know.

The show is streamed on the world wide web of the Internet so you'd be able to hear it. My media domination plan has been: Blog to Twitter to TV shows to Movies but maybe the radio thing would be a nice stepping stone to the TV show gig*. I'm not sure.

So I'm just testing the waters here to see if there would be any interest in you (the reader) calling in to ask me questions if the station meets my elaborate demands and I decide to do it.

*Uh..does anyone know anyone who works in the TV industry? If so, please print out my entire blog(500 plus pages), and write "Resume" on the top and give it to them.

Oh yeah. I need some help on my list of elaborate demands. So far I have:

- nobody looks be in the eye.
- feta stuffed olives, artichoke and cheese plate
- Booze to include the trinity: beer, scotch and red wine.
- Parkway cleaners cleans the cape I'll be wearing and my backup cape.

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

I will call if you were the cape and NOTHING else.

hee heehee

Dr Zibbs said...

Mrs Holly Hall - you're on.

Mr. Condescending said...

i'll call. But only if benny forester lets you pull up to the radio station in the shark van.

ÄsK AliCë said...

I'll call - how much is long distance? Is it worth my non-recession-proof pennies? They are Canadian.

You should also ask for a bowl full of orange Smarties (or M&M's - your choice), coffee that is stirred in a counter-clockwise direction ONLY (a la J-Lo), a fake tree (don't explain why you need it) and, of course, some (Tibetan) Goji berries (must be certified authentic).

I was a Diva in a past life

'being all famous and shit'

easy tiger.

you have a couple of hundred followers on a blog. a blog which, at best documents semi-amusing dinner party anecdotes.

are you seriously planning on a career from this? i bet you practise tv interview answers in the bathroom mirror.

i can almost smell the desparation.

Dominica said...

Are you up for work in Europe ? Tv, movie ??
I know a filmdirector ... so ...

PS what time is the broadcast due ?
Where do you live exactly (I'll have to stay up all night to hear you actually talk on the radio...wow, I'm starting to sound like a die-hard fan here !)

Dedene said...

I'll have to call long distance too. Watch out for the time difference.
You deserve some radio time.

Michelle said...

In my world, you are famous and shit!

I would love to hear your voice. DO IT!!!

Dr Zibbs said...

Anonymous - "Easy tiger"? "dinner party anecdotes"?

Now how did someone in their 90's turn on the typewriter TV by themselves.

That is adorable. Now I you obviously don't understand anything satirical so why don't you ask someone to pop your George and Gracie videos into the VCR.

There you go. Thanks for stopping by.

Dr Zibbs said...

Dominica - depends how much they'll comp me for the flight.

katrocket said...

I work in the TV industry, and I already tried sending them your blog. Sadly, they declined on the grounds that Nana Zibbs wasn't "TV friendly".

Their loss.

moooooog35 said...

I'll only call in if you do your Dr. Ruth impression.

Priceless.

sybil law said...

I'll call in!

Son of a Thomas said...

I'll listen if you do Bubble Up live.

Cameron said...

Can I use expletives when calling in? For example, could I say, "That Dr Zibbs is the mother fuckin man...he gets all the bitches!" ?

Samsmama said...

I'll call in, but only so I can be highly annoying and blurt out, "First time caller, long time listener."

Aren't Anonymous people clever?

Amy Kate said...

oh my god, send me a number to call...i have so many questions for you...

Dr Zibbs said...

Moog - I've never done a Dr Ruth impression. Wait. Are you saying my imitations are crappy?


Son of Thomas - where the hell have you been. I will totally do Bubble Up.

Cameron - I'm not sure.

Samsmama - I would love to hear that line.

Amy Kate - if it happens I'll give the number in time enough for people to write and rehearse their questions.

The Jules said...

Do you work well both independently and as part of a well motivated team?

And where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Oh Zibsy! Congrats! That is certianly exciting!

You can always call Sass for advice and I would definately call in!!

Worked in TV my entire pre-mommy career. It's like an addictive bad lover. Not always loyal, but fun as hell while you're doing it!

Keep us posted.

Dr Zibbs said...

Candy - will do but I will have to have one of those voice altering machines.

jadedj said...

I'll call, as long as you don't talk. OK?

Lostinspace said...

Absolutely do it, but not too early, wait till I get up. How about nine-ish.

Anna Lefler said...

Oh, I would definitely call in. My standard opener is "What are you wearing?" We could just see where it went from there.

As for demands, I would go for a (confirmed) virginal intern washing your hair with Evian.

I'll need that phone number, Chief. (I'll ring once first and hang up. Then you'll know it's me.)

XO

A.

Dr Zibbs said...

Ana - let me get this down....ring first...hang up...will then call back...

OK got it!

Bizarro said...

Better work on the catch phrase now if you want to make it in "the industry".

. . . and I demand a spin-off.

Fancy Schmancy said...

I love that he called you out on the character thing, too funny! Last weekend I kept myself entertained creating you a header, this weekend I will keep myself entertained thinking up questions to embarrass you on the radio. Yay!

p.s. did you ever find out who Anita was? You need to get THAT person to call you, for sho.

Dr Zibbs said...

Bizarro - how about:

"Who me? (swirls head around) Don't EVEN try it"

As for the spin off, I may need someone to pick up trash in the studio and some general "policing of the area"

If you can successfully perform these tasks I will consider a spinoff.

Dr Zibbs said...

Fancy - I still don't know who the Anita caller is from THE SNAPVINE RECORDER THAT IS ON MY SIDEBAR.

I wish she would come out of the closet.

As for thinking of calls that will embarrass me - you know how fragile I am. Don't even be hatin'.

Dr Zibbs said...

That's the first time I've ever said hatin'.

Bizarro said...

I confess. I am Anita. I am Anonymous. I am Anti-Zibbs.

I am John Renard.

You never should have made fun of me and my hog.

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Well....actually I worked at WBBH-TV 20 in Fort Myers, FL (NBC Affiliate) I'll see what I can do!

Have a SUPER WEEKEND!!

- Jennifer

LiLu said...

What's "radio"?

diane said...

OOOOO, a chance to hear your voice. I want to record it. That way I can listen to it again and again and again. Kind of like listening to a favorite record. I won't call though, because I'm a moron, ask anybody, and I could never come up with a question worthy of your caped mightyness.

words...words...words... said...

LiLu wins this entry.

Dr Zibbs said...

Just so you know I've been asked to transmit my messages via telegraph and I've held out saying, "Nope. Only radio - the state of the art technology - is good enough for my readers.

And Diane, as for hearing my voice, I'll probably be talking into one of those machines that will make me sound like Stephen Hawkins, Darth Vader or Stephen Hawkins doing a really bad imitation of Darth Vader.

Dr Zibbs said...

....or I could just imitate Chewbacca.

..Naaa nobody would know what I'm saying.

Son of a Thomas said...

I suggest that you pull an Andy Kaufman. Claim the host is incorrect and you were booked to discuss male hygine during the tick season and then never vary from that.

Dr Zibbs said...

Son of a.. that would be sweet.

Sass said...

Fascinating.

Heff said...

"Twitter" - PSHAW !!

Slyde said...

i would love to listen in, but past experience has proven to me that whenever someone i know is on an internet show, i always INTEND on tuning in, but then i completely forget..

Fancy Schmancy said...

Zibbs, I would never be hatin'. What do I look like, that Assnonymous creature who left that mean comment?

Grant Miller said...

I know a few people that work on some of the most watched television shows in the world. They don't give me the time of day.

I'll call in, but I'll probably just pull a Captain Janks.
