I dont remember the exact timeline here, but a few facts....
1...My best friend sold high end equipment to the radio stations. More specifically, machines that did the 7 second delay.
2 I was receiving a tiny amount of money to call into a local talk radio show. I did several characters that people liked, or hated, but they listened. I often times pulled shit , on other stations, to bring them to the one I worked for.
3. Talk radio stations had zero need for this equipment when they had kind, nice listeners who never said bad words.
So, I think this was near the time when Janet Jackson flashed her tit, during the superbowl. At that point, these stations became very aware of the possible fines they might see if they let bad language go over the air.
With all that in mind, Mitt Romney is on a local talk station, and they are taking live calls. Hes well known, locally, for managing the Olympics.
I call in, using my old man voice. I waited forever, and finally I was on. This station had no delay. My friend had been trying to sell them one, but there was no need. The station he was on is still called KSL Radio. Its owned by the mormon church, so their talk was always VERY mild and family friendly.
I decided to do "Old Roy" Karl Malone loved him. Old Roy sounded dumb, but knew every stat there was about Karl...go figure he liked him, and they gave me pre printed material for those calls.
"OH, Mr. Romney...what an honor to talk to you. Thank you for your service to our country, and nation, for the way you handled the Olympic mess. Honestly, I dont think we have anyone better who can represent us, the people, on a national level.
Now they are all relaxed. Mitt knows he has a fan, and the host is not worried about what comes next.
"Its even more remarkable, sir, that you were able to spend half your day sucking your own cock."
It ruined the whole show. They spent the next 30 minutes telling everyone how sorry they were for the "filth and disgust"....it was awesome.
My friend ended up selling them the delay equipment, and he gave me 500.00 for my 3 minutes of work. I imagine Mitt still remembers that.
