DFO Radio: Winter Wonderland

Like many Americans, I'm a bit obsessed with the implosion of our current White House administration.  So much so that I have attempted to restrict my consumption of political news by only allowing myself to read about it while I'm on the toilet (as I feel a Venn diagram of

Request Line: Winter Wonderland

INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY The PRODUCER, portraying a false sense of cheerfulness, flips switches and adjusts levels in preparation for the afternoon's show.  DJ 3000 is still in sulk mode. PRODUCER: So, you're still upset about last week? DJ 3000: ... PRODUCER: Come on, don't be like that.  Fumblesnapskin was a big get

So when I was a little kid, I had very blond hair.  Like, platinum blond.  My brother and sister were the same.  As we got older, our hair got darker, eventually settling into its final color by my mid-twenties.  It was around that time of my life that I was

Request Line: Divine Intervention

INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY The booth is empty.  CONNOR, THE INTERN'S desk is vacant, with only a single banker's box of random mementos sitting on top awaiting collection.  The PRODUCER sits in front of the exterior control panel, fiddling with knobs in preparation for the first broadcast of the offseason. 

DFO Radio – Starting With A Bang

At the start of every new year, I wonder how many people float checks with the date of the previous year and don’t get either punched or a crowbar to the gut. (Hey, checks still do the job, as long as the memo doesn’t say “BRIBE”.) My guess is plenty

DFO Radio: NFL Karaoke

RIKKI-TIKKI-DEADLY: Well, that's a wrap on the offseason.  What did you think, of the NFL Karaoke topic, Mark? MARK DAVIS: IT WAS THE MOST FUN I EVER HAD IN MY WHOLE LIFE! RTD: Yeah, it was pretty great.  Did you have a favorite song? MARK DAVIS: YEAH I LIKE THE ONE THAT TAO-TE-CUTLER

DFO Radio: Percussion

Welcome to another Tuesday edition of DFO Radio!  Last week's Request Line was rushed because I was on my way to a wedding weekend in Montecito.  It was a lovely affair; the bride and groom are lovely people and the only thing anyone could complain about with regards to the

DFO Radio: Adversaries

One storyline that the NFL will relentlessly attempt to promote is that certain teams do not like each other.  Steelers vs. Ravens is the one that comes to mind the most, and it's true.  They are much like a pair of prison gangs competing over the heroin trade.  But it's

DFO Radio: Navigation

Given the avalanche of #kontent yesterday, I held DFO Radio for today.  Let's just say it got lost along the way. Curiously, Mitchell Trubisky kind of blew a hole in his own kharacter by looking rather competent in his debut.  Apparently he has yet to realize what team he's playing for.

DFO Radio: Get Th(rowback W)ee(k) Behind Me

Greetings!  This week, we're very excited to be celebrating our 2nd anniversary of online residence here at doorfliesopen.com.  But people forget that we've actually been producing material for 50 years now.  Our first introduction to the public was via the Communist Party of the USA, after they discovered their newsletters

DFO Radio: He Said She Said

Good day, fine people!  My weekend was marked by getting up early both mornings to watch some of the least compelling tennis you'll ever see.  I'm perfectly happy for the Wimbledon champions, but I just wish things had been more competitive.  The most exciting thing that happened to me over
