My favorite radio station is at it again.
If you look back through my archives, you'll come across various posts and references to what I call "Radio Spanko". It's actually FM 107.1 here in the Twin Cities. I began listening to the station simply because it was one of the few that my radio was able to pick up in the building where I work. After listening for a while, I noticed one of the afternoon co-hosts making a little spanking reference here and there. She did it enough times that i wrote about it and dubbed the station, "Radio Spanko." Now whenever I hear her make a new reference, I put it up here on the blog.
But she's not the only one who's done it. The last time I wrote about Radio Spanko, it was a comment from an early morning show hosted by husband and wife Ian and Margery.
And the little radio "startles" have kept right on coming. On the Jason and Alexis show, host Jason Matheson on occasion will say something like, "Well, smack my butt and call me Charlie", and his co-host, Alexis Thompson, invariably responds, "Bend over." Jason has never commented or called Alexis out on it--it might be funny if he did!
I heard the latest one today.
Once again, it came from the Ian and Margery show. The dialogue that follows is not verbatim--I'm attempting to recreate it from memory, so it's bound to be a little off, but it's close enough.
Margery apparently managed to get a ticket, and she and Ian were talking about it on the air.
Margery: Maybe it's my Catholic guilt talking, but I feel like I deserved that $111 ticket.
Ian: Couldn't you get the ticket waived, and just say 5 Hail Mary's instead?
Margery: In my world view....I deserve to be punished.
Ian: I'll give you a spanking, you get the ticket waived and say 5 Hail Mary's, and then I'll say 3 Hail Mary's for giving you a spanking!
Margery: I'll let the judge spank me, how about that?
Ian: This is my life....
The fun thing about this exchange is the fact that the radio station took this snippet of conversation and is using it as a promo for the Ian and Margery show, so it gets played over and over again throughout the day!
Catching a spanking reference when you least expect it is so much fun.....
