Should TVG take calls?

"Lets take a few phone calls" isn't something you hear on tvg. Would they benefit from being a little interactive with the fans?

Matt used to take calls on a show called 58 flat.

Most people were really stupid.

Not long after that show went off the air.

PA came into existence

That's right good point, I miss 58 flat.

I guess they would have to 'vet' the calls and only take the sharpest ones. Prob easier said than done.

TVG and PA started within DAYS of each other, back in 1999. So you're a bit off there...I existed way before :58 flat, unless that show started on day 1, which I doubt.

Vic mighta been joking about how the 'stupid people' came to PA after 58 flat went off the air and just worded it wrong.

Amazing resolve by you to keep this place going for over 16 years now, that's impressive.

Not from me. I have as foul a mouth as anyone you'll meet, and very little control.

Yes, anything to expand the stream of consciousness random soliloquies about anything at all, particularly if it isn't pertinent to one of the ten races upcoming, is certainly something that we need more of.

Anybody that puts up with us and doesn't have a sense of humor should walk into a chopper blade.

You saying TVG started in 1999 reminded me of some of the people I worked with back then.

I came on board in July of 99.

Who remembers............

Chris Harrison

Claudia Simon

Pricillia Hojawala

Jeff Lifson

Craig Hummer

Caton Bredar

Ken Rudulph

Frank Lyons

Greg Wolf

Sure I'm forgetting several

Still there from the very beginning.

Matt
