Quantcast
IVANA: most bands are lucky to have a six-week window
LENNY: i think this column has a six-week window, we might not be renewed
IVANA: i've had a 16-year run here--maybe it's time for the next generation to take over
LENNY: if you are old, then what am i? don't answer that
IVANA & LENNY SELECT THE 2006 POMO ALL-STAR TEAM
They Are the Brave, the Few, the Keepers of Our Beloved, Beleaguered Format
IVANA: greetings
LENNY: and salutations
IVANA: ready for our "midsummer classic"--our version of the all-star game?
LENNY: or our midsummer night's dream
 IVANA: let's put together a pomo all-star team
LENNY: ok, i'll take bill carroll with the first pick
IVANA: no shit--he got kndd and 91x on 30 seconds, as well as wsun, ktbz and wbtz on red jumpsuit apparatus. so i'll take is cohort howard p.
LENNY: all right, i'll take jacqueline saturn, who has this week's #1 most added with audioslave
IVANA: great song! my next pick is jj grossman, who will be segueing from jacq's team to the soon-to-be-vacated ron cerrito gig at columbia
LENNY: wow, putting a rookie on your all-star team is bold
IVANA: watch this: next choice is mark fischer--he's rested and ready and heading to island
LENNY: and he'll look like an immediate genius with the new killers single
IVANA: which is also immediately genius
LENNY: i'll take ted volk, who is a clippers fan and has one of my fave songs of the year with the second hurt cut warming up in the bullpen
IVANA: i adore ted--he's unbelievably strong. i’ll trade you two draft picks for ted.
LENNY: enough of this game, i still hate all-star teams.... so, let's be happy and revel in the fact that two people actually got jobs last week
IVANA: and there are too many good people to choose from, but all i care about is whether or not the uniform will look good with my skin tone
LENNY: oy. hey, when is a new arctic monkeys cut coming out?
IVANA: this week--"fake tales of san francisco"--krox austin added it today
LENNY: excellent, i like that band
IVANA: did you hear that mancow and q101 have parted company after 8 years? bold move on pd mike stern's part!
LENNY: i wish they'd take him off my sportstalk station in los angeles as well. music stations should play music, sportstalk stations should talk sports, whatta concept
IVANA: also, jim mcquinn's y100rocks.com is merging with wxpn, so jim will be on wxpn 3 nights/week, playing modern rock, which philly desperately needs! and y100rocks.com will now be y100onxpn.com.
LENNY: hooray hooray hooray. i would like to mention something that is not at all pomo related
IVANA: is it sports related?
LENNY: i think all of our reader should take a moment and listen to the brilliant corinne bailey rae album, she is something truly special
IVANA: it's great, i agree
LENNY: i just think people are a bit format blind, and many of the great promotion and programming people in pomoland probably haven't heard her yet, AND SHOULD
IVANA: in other happy radio news, dom nardella (aka "nard") was given the pd nod at wxrk cleveland
LENNY: ah, the nard rules
IVANA: and cleveland rocks
LENNY: cleveland has always rocked
IVANA: i saw THE MOST AMAZING SHOW since our last chat
LENNY: project runway?
IVANA: good guess, but I’m referring to belle & sebastian with the l.a. philharmonic at the hollywood bowl, with the shins opening
IVANA: 18,000 kids freaking out at the bowl--so amazing
LENNY: wow, they were talking about belle & sebastian on a how i met your mother rerun i watched last night, i love that show
IVANA: ah, after 10 years, they're reaching a pop culture zeitgeist
LENNY: everything in time, i guess
IVANA: most bands are lucky to have a six-week window
LENNY: i think this column has a six-week window, we might not be renewed
IVANA: i've had a 16-year run here--maybe it's time for the next generation to take over
LENNY: if you are old, then what am i? don't answer that
IVANA: rich
IVANA: a captain of industry
IVANA: a force to be reckoned with
LENNY: a mediocre golfer
IVANA: so how about some words of wisdom from your perch, as the arbiter of all you survey
LENNY: ok, it is very hot in los angeles, so tonight, in the immortal words of frankie + annette.... it is time to go back to the beach
IVANA: that is not helpful to anyone but you
LENNY: always take fountain? which is helpful to anyone in los angeles
IVANA: while you've been trying to think of something deep, i've recruited lorraine caruso, bill burrs and rob goldklang for my all-star team
LENNY: ok, and you can be the designated hitter. leaving me to be the pitcher or the catcher.... ouch
IVANA: say goodnight, gracie. and I hope you wished sherri a happy birthday--it was last thursday
LENNY: i think i'm already gone
IVANA: wear sunscreen
