New York, New York

On this Sound of Young America: The College Years, we celebrate America's Greatest City: New York, New York.  Sorry for feed troubles earlier this week, this should be fixed.

This includes taking travel tips from listeners, and calling various offices in the New York tourism department, trying to get them to reccomend a phone booth that we can use for a simulcast.  As it turns out, there is a phone booth in the ground floor of the Empire State Building, but there is not one on top.

I'm gonna be honest: a great effing time is had by all.

No Theme 2-15-01

Thu, 20 Apr 2006 02:52:00 +0000

On this Sound of Young America broadcast, it's a potpourri, a hodge-podge, a cornucopia of miscellany. Here's a rundown:

We hear a bizarre message left on Matt's voicemail by a Briton looking for someone named "Harry." Then a woman, who says Harry is "in trouble!" calls. Who is Harry?

Jordan improvises a poem with a yutz at the candy store.

Jordan shares some Bold Statements

Jesse "Runs the Numbers"

Jesse and Jordan ask local businesspeople how they plan to make their business more XXXtreme

Then a guy calls in to "pay allegiance to you guys."

Overall, we learn that The Sound of Young America used to be surprisingly ambitious.
