22796463-mmmain (2:37:21) It’s been a week, but we’re back! We have NOT disappeared!

Chad Bowers is serious when he talks about the disappearance of truth in media, ‘drugstore horses’ and other important things; Dave Duckert has three personal stories on exhibit and I think you’ll enjoy them all; Doc Sleaze has a few items about news suppressed by the media and disappearances of old TV series and films; Frank Edward Nora talks about the disappearance of all kinds of things and various people in his very interesting piece; and your host Jimbo chimes in with ‘disappearance memories’ of his own (Mark Fidrych, Bill Idelson, Jerry Lewis – plus the time Jimbo disappeared).

ons766_300 (2:42:31) Jimbo’s no Oprah Winfrey, but like Oprah, he asks the vocal forum to spout their AHA MOMENTS. And the forum responds: Shambles Constant returns (with the story about his newly broken ankle); Dave Duckert talks about his ‘blinding flash of light'; Chad Bowers, too, recounts moments of illumination – from a strangely serious point-of-view (I think), Frank Edward Nora talks about AHA MOMENTS in a way that only he can and Doc Sleaze spends a day at the beach and shares some time with us!

Meanwhile, Jimbo has been busy making hay and I’m certain if you will download and listen in and to the end, he will surprise you in ways that may surprise you!! Yes, you read that correctly. Plus, he has a Hall of Fame-type ‘Week in Review’ — or he modestly thinks so.

So, what are you waiting for? Patch in for fun!

ONS Central (2:11:36) If statistics mean anything, then Internet audio pioneer Frank Edward Nora is a HERO.  Your host Jimbo has an exclusive, candid interview with him. Chad Bowers has his own Dystopia/hero story; Dave Duckert, from the frozen(?) tundra of Wisconsin, is back with another special story – this one about the time he broke up an ‘old boy political network'; Jimbo has a really goofy “Week-in-Review” that you won’t want to miss [Godzilla and Timo vs the Kyoto Cicadas?] and later talks about heroes in his life.
