    Good story. Why doesn't he call the station after the daughter leaves?

    Yeah, I wondered how loud he talks/how small her place is if he wakes her up talking on the phone. Kind of odd.

    cool story.

    and perhaps "short al" is one of those overnight faithful who loved calling in the wee hours when the hosts are less egomaniacal and callers can talk for as long as they'd like, pretty much.

    Fantastic story! Just as good was the video - perfect length at under 80 seconds.

    A very neat change-of-pace story.

    Well done!
