  1. Hey Bob, thanks for the welcome and the shout-out on your show! I am familiar with your old stomping grounds of Decatur… small world. 🙂 Let’s see, stuff you mentioned: ISU is still Illinois State University; I do work for an ins. company (on the admin side of things); Monical’s is in Blm-Normal (we have three of them!) and I am addicted to the place; all things considered this town is a pretty nice area; and Bloomington is a big town for bars/pubs. We have the U.S. Cellular Coliseum now (lots of country music acts), and we used to have a great restaurant called the Double Nickel that was based on the fifties but was closed about ten years ago. (I still miss that place!) On the ISU campus is a great little theater called the Normal Theater which plays a lot of classic/foreign/independent films.

    I enjoy listening to Morning Commute. There is a nice easygoing feel to the show, makes me feel like I’m just riding along with you, chatting away. I haven’t checked out Static Radio yet, but will make it a point to do so. Thanks again, and I hope “Shambles” does grow on you. If not, just call me “Illinois” or “Bloomington” or something. 😀 Cheers!

  2. Hope I wasn’t overly harsh on the name thing, it wasn’t intended that way, just new to me and the name is halting to say, so it is a little harder to get used to. I certainly think people should go with what they want. Thanks for the info, I haven’t been to Bloomington in quite a while, I used to go to a seafood buffet a long time ago with my in laws over there, I can’t even remember the name of it, but it was supposed to be great, at least for living so far from the ocean. I think I recall the Double Nickel from days gone by and I used to love going to what was then the Kathryn Beich candy factory, but now I think Nestle owns it or its closed. You used to be able to get bags of broken candy bars really cheap, but they still tasted great.

    I look forward to listening to your shows as they hit the ONSUG site, it is great to have another Midwesterner on the channel to balance out all the East Coast folks a little bit more.


    P.S. Just a word of warning, since you have small kids and a nice office to work in, Static Radio, is a bit vulgar, and in your face sometimes, so it is best enjoyed in privacy or with headphones on. It can be funny, but you never know what will be mentioned.

  3. Hey Bob! No, no offense taken at all. I was more amused than anything else. 😀 I’m not into seafood really; about all I can think of is Red Lobster. And yeah, Nestle bought the Beich factory and I think it did close. My cousin worked there for a few years.

    I’m planning to keep going at about the rate I’m going now with the show, with two (possibly three) new shows a week and a batch of older eps released around the weekend until I get through the backlog. You’ll definitely hear more from me! I’m going to release them at the 24 bitrate that PQ and Frank mentioned, especially with the bundles of episodes.

    Yeah, I listen to pretty much all the Internet radio shows with headphones and/or away from my daughter’s/co-workers’ range of hearing, just in case. No problem here. I downloaded your most recent Static Radio episode and should have time to listen tonight.
