DFO Radio: False Positive

I keep a spreadsheet with potential topics for Request Line, and I've had "false accusations" on there for quite a long time. I'd always been hesitant to run with it, though, because I thought the topic might be a little too narrow.  But given the quality and quantity of the

Request Line: False Positive

INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY The PRODUCER sits at his regular station outside the recording booth, looking relatively relaxed.  DJ3000 is humming quietly in the corner.  The PRODUCER punches the talkback button to open up a line into the studio.

DFO Radio: I Beg Your Pardon

During last night's open thread I brought up the "science" in the movie Interstellar. I think I was being a bit misleading there, making an implication that the physics behind some of the movie's concepts were incorrect.  I wouldn't know - I didn't watch the entire thing.  I ended up turning

DFO Radio: Stop Talking

I can't begin to express how irritated I am with Houston for choking away their chance to give us a finals matchup we haven't already seen three times in a row.  There's some debate about what "choking" means, to me it means that you fail to accomplish a task you

Request Line: Stop Talking

INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY A young man sits inside the studio.  The PRODUCER sits outside, looking vexed. PRODUCER: I honestly don't know what you're trying to accomplish here. ERIC REID: ...

DFO Radio: Keeping It Clean and Family Business

I hope you're ready for a DOUBLE SHOT of DFO Radio.  Thanks to Low Commander ably taking over the station for the week, Request Line didn't miss a beat.  Thanks to my vacation to Japan, though, I wasn't able to compile the playlist so you're getting two this week.  First

Request Line: Family Business

INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY ...we join our show currently in progress. It is a happy scene, and there is much merriment... SHAQUEM: ...and then he says "...and that's why you always leave a note." SHAQUILL: I swear to God I thought my nephew Aidan - he's six - was gonna sh...[catches self]...urely

Request Line: Keep It Clean

INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY The PRODUCER and DJ3000 are standing outside the recording booth, waiting for their guest to arrive. DJ3000: I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND. PRODUCER: For the last time, we already had a guest scheduled for this week. We can't just cancel on him after he's traveled this far. DJ3000: SURE

DFO Radio: Better Living Through Chemistry

Last week's theme for Request Line was "chemistry".  It took a little while for the Commentists' reaction to gain steam, but once it did, it got EXPLOSIVE!  In tribute to that, the pick of the week goes to Game Time Decision, whose request of "Volcano Girls" by Veruca Salt ticks

Request Line: Better Living Through Chemistry

INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY. The PRODUCER and DJ3000 are standing outside the recording booth. DJ3000: SO THIS IS REALLY IT? PRODUCER: This is really it. DJ3000: NO TRICKS THIS TIME? PRODUCER: I promise. DJ3000: BECAUSE OTHER TIMES I THOUGHT... PRODUCER: Not this time. This time it's the real deal. DJ3000: [sighs happily] PRODUCER: Almost air time. You ready? DJ3000: I WAS
