The WCJM cast got together again for yet another morning show. This theme was thought of by Jim. He decided that he knew too many great songs that he previously refrained from playing on the shows. He also had a hunch that the other cast members had songs they wanted to play that were pretty obscure. So, each cast member chose a few songs that had not been the singles off of the albums, but were just regular album cuts. This show is also recorded in stereo to let you hear all the side comments that are often lost in a mono mix- listen to this show on headphones!

The cast consisted of Chris, Jim, Mike, Dave, Matt, and Jeff. Alberto went A.W.O.L. on this show because of a Dave Matthew’s Band concert he attended. Jim made a comment about Alberto’s absence in one of comedy segments, too. Jaime Moore, Chris’s sister (who originally did radio shows with Chris back in the mid-1990s), sat by to listen to the show, as well.

This show has some of the funniest comedy segments ever done, including Matt’s classic first standup comedy segment that’s “completely related” to his job at Subway, the Food Critic taking on Jim by doing his own World Report, Chris’s classic “Stink” skit (actually written by, but not credited to Mike and Jim), Ronco (of course), a great TNWST with a hilarious soda pun segment, and Dr. K. Dave’s laugh not only leads off the show, but makes multiple appearances throughout the show, as well.

As Lawrence Muntz pointed out, “It’s been ‘Muntz’ since I’ve done this,” but this show proved that the WCJM cast still had it. The show went off without a hitch (other than Chris knocking the power to the mixer off during a song) and this stands as one the best shows WCJM doesn’t want not to hear of anymore!
