Been listening for over a year now, love it! By the way intern Isaiah looks nothing like he sounds. Small town news is my favorite. Bring back the Jon’s diary.

Great show

Been listening since July and have enjoyed the comedy and small town news and how much is that residual check segments as they always bring silliness and fun to a comedy showcase. With all the laughs and fun of a live show in a portable format. Thanks again for all the fun times.
