Altered Circuitry presents:


Tonight we’re digging into the vaults for another classic dr. atavist hosted episode, this time of Altered Circuitry: ReWired…. on this particular night, dr. atavist had offered to give me a much-needed break, because he was also filling in for The New Breakfast Snob and figured it would be easy enough to just stick around. What resulted was a fantastic episode of AC:RW, and also this encounter with a fan of the programming block that dr. atavist and I shared, which he detailed to me in a text message thusly:

“There was a guy outside WRIR tonight and he asked me if I “worked” here. I told him I did, but no one fucking pays me … he said he wanted to pick up his shirt and he had walked over. I told him I would sort him out, etc … going up he asks what show I do. I told him I did SOB the following week, and was subbing for you tonight.

“Holy shit! I love you guys! I love all the whole station, but you guys … you go to the … you know, further reaches on your shows.”

He then spreads his arms wide and puts his head back with eyes closed and tells me that’s him on the couch Thursday night … then he ran home so he could hear his name on the radio.”

At the end of the day, its all for people like this guy, and I love that.

In memory of rev. dr. atavist, aka Kevin McFadin.
