Jocks and Stations John Evans - WCBH - Casey, IL

We've all had that one great blooper in our career. I'll let John give you all the details:

Okay, WCBH had a live remote from this bar in Mattoon, Illinois called Broadway Joes. At the time the General Manager was trading remotes for bar tabs. No thought went into this remote either.

We were a Classic Hits station, and they had us there on Country Night. Some band called The Wanderers were on stage. All of our remotes were done on a cell phone, and we only knew we were live if we heard the touch tones hit a few times. Not only did I have to deal with a loud country band, but some "listeners" were  sitting in the parking lot trying to get every free thing I was giving away.

It was very hot in the place. Against my better judgement I took a shot of schnapps that did not sit well with me. As I was trying to listen to the phone so I could go live, the prize-pigs were yelling at me about how unfair I was for not letting them take all the schwag , and I was straining to hear my cue over this loud music. The music ends. I hear the tones, and then my opening remarks....

For a moment I thought I was a goner. All the remotes were taped because the bar owners were out of town. I told the jock back at the station to leave the tape and I would tell the GM as soon as I saw him. When I got back to the station and was playing the tape back, the GM walked in and as usual, was a bit tipsy from the local bar. I told him I needed to talk to him and I played the tape.


Relief came when I saw him laugh so hard he hit the wall.

This is still one of the funniest things I've ever heard! I always laugh so hard at the first part, I almost miss how he says midnight!

I was panicking. Overall, its not that bad a of a break for someone who not only said the name of the business wrong, but then dropped the G.D. live on the air. Heck, its one minute long! (but I did notice I said "come out and say hello to us" like 3 time) I think the cursing was mostly a reaction of everything that had built up to that moment.
