Robert is blindsided and infiltrated by fellow WTAN has-been comedian, TV  and radio show host "Artie Fletcher" talking about much of nothing as usual. Artie continues baffling and dazzeling the listeners and staff with jokes, insults and funny business. Earlier, NRC radio show fan Junk Mike joined in on the conversation and won a radio give-a-way prize. Another NRC listener, Charlie Biscotti called in to invite us all to his Saturday night Christmas party. Later in the show, WTAN 1340 cronic caller, avid listener, sports geek, and "Know nothing about cars" NRC radio show fan Radio Rob called in and begged for more prizes only to receive his usual heavy dose of verbal abuse and pranks (humm...he is probably still on hold......hee hee hee...Cedi) from Artie and studio engineer Cedric.  We all had a good time and a lot of fun!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

  • Your show host Robert and special guests Sean, Azn and Louise.     They are the stars from Discovery Channel's new hit TV show "Streetoutlaws". The show centers around some midwest Oklahoma good old boys who like to streetrace. Oklahoma boasts the Fastest street cars in the country and it seems that in might just be true. Sean, Azn and Louise's vehicle of choice is an unassuming edgy old 1970 Chevy C10 pick-up truck known as the "Farmtruck". Sean is the driver, aka "Farmtruck" Azn is the frontman and Louise (the dog) is the faithful mascot. The Farmtruck runs a low 10 second et and many unsuspecting hotshots fall prey to the old beater all too often. These guys travel the local and surrounding areas looking for street races. They are a pretty tight-knit group of deticated car guys. Many of the cars are state of the art and purpose built, capable of running in excess of 160+ mph, in 1000 feet within 8 seconds on the street. Their biggest rivals come from the neighboring state of Texas, allthough they have won races as far away as California.

     Season's Greetings.
