Character and Skit Ideas|

I live in Phoenix, Arizona, I'm female, 38 years old and have been married for 15 years, very, very happily, and have never strayed from my spouse once. I come from German Catholic stock 4th generation from Ellis Island, and I consider myself a conservative Republican with an ear toward liberal views, but I'm selectively deaf when it comes to mixing PHC humor with politics. I truly enjoy your radio show, and respect your talent and the talent of the PHC radio performers. I especially like the mountain music with mandolins and "old radio" sounds, as I like to imagine myself back in 1945. You see, as an only child of parents who were in high school during WWII, my early happy childhood memories are a remembrance of stories my parents told me when I was in grammar school of what it was like to listen to the radio shows when THEY were in grammar school. So, NOW, I imagine your PHC show as a fond reminder of Mom & Dad telling stories to their little girl. I would like to hear Dusty & Lefty journey into Urban America. I have given some personal background of myself so that you have an idea of who likes to tune in every Saturday evening at six o'clock! Also, I did not particularly enjoy Trish Trash, it was mildly offensive. Best Wishes for 1997 and continued success to you!

Dear Dale -----
Trish Trash was the punker who Guy Noir encountered in the bar and who threw stuff around and was having a midlife crisis at nineteen, right? How was it offensive? I'm not arguing with you, only looking for more information. She didn't use profanity ---- was it simply the idea? GK
