INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY
A pair of radio professionals are standing outside the recording booth sipping coffee.
CONNOR, THE INTERN: …and by then it was 3 a.m., so we ended up going over to Swingers for some pancakes. So I only ended up getting about two hours of sleep before the color run.
PRODUCER: [musing] You know, I’m not really sure whether I miss being young or not.
CONNOR: So we’re bringing him back, huh? Is this the first time we’ve had a repeat host?
PRODUCER: It is. And technically, this is the third time he’s made an appearance.
CONNOR: You must like him a lot to keep putting him on the air.
PRODUCER: You know, I do. He’s a good kid.
CONNOR: Here he comes now.

COOPER MANNING: Hi guys!
COOPER MANNING: It’s me! Your favorite two time Super Bowl winning quarterback.
COOPER MANNING: Here to do another episode of Request Hour! Just like I’ve done a couple of times before.
PRODUCER: Uh…yeah. Sure. Head on into the booth, um, [makes air quotes] “Eli”.
COOPER MANNING heads into the broadcast booth and begins getting settled in as CONNOR closes the door.
CONNOR: You’re okay with this?
PRODUCER: [shrugs] Eh, they sound similar enough. Who’s gonna know the difference?
DJ 3000: [stews quietly in the corner]
COOPER MANNING: We ready?
PRODUCER: Sure are. [counts down silently with hand signals]
COOPER MANNING: Good afternoon, folks, welcome to yet another edition of Request Line! Today we’re looking for songs about things that are REAL. You know, the genuine article. Nothing counterfeit, that’s not what we’re after here. We want the REAL THING. Give me a call, I’m play ’em all!
