Episode 173: The Mothra Twins

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, March 27 2013 (10:45 - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “The concert date has been announced, the advertisements have been posted.  Time for the mostly annual ‘ticket-buying adventures’ podcast!  (Special appearance by Jacob.  The Clyne cast starts at 38.22.)

    01:18 - I admit, I overreacted.  After all, we are all of us members of the FSGL.
    03:31 - nope; for once I was fairly accurate
    04:47 - no, as you can see (below) Jackson Browne is mentioned the newspaper article
    09:32 - “Buffett’s appearance at Comerica Park last July marked the largest single-night Buffett concert in history.” (Source: WXYZ.com)
    11:27 - as you can probably guess, some variation on “Motor Casity Casino” was in the running as episode title for quite a while
    12:17 - all that got forwarded to us:

An unsuccessful forward

    13:21 - what Patti forwarded to us:

 

A successful forward

    15:47 - an effort was made to record the conference call, but, by either hooking something up to my cellphone or by calling in through Skype; but, frankly, I was leery of complicating or jeopardizing things
    18:58 - “the first time”; that is last year, when I first used tickets.com. All these adventures are quite similar to last years, as heard in Episode 162.
    24:31 - and my tickets showed up in the mail eight days later
    28:54 - Life as a Pirate Hooker, as seen on Facebook
    29:13 - which we reviewed in Episode 164
    30:53 - a “Convenience Fee” of approximately $27 per ticket, with a last-second $5 “Order Processing” fee as a parting shot
    41:03 - audio from Car Talk Show #1311, March 16 2013

2013 TV Ad

    Recorded at around 3:00 PM this afternoon, on Fox Sports Detroit…

    Note: although recorded off an HD channel, the commercial itself was in window-boxed standard-def.

BONUS: 2013 Radio Ad

    It’s the new radio ad, recorded a day earlier than expected.  As with last year, I recorded WYCD 99.5 FM (about fifteen hours’ worth, over two days) and caught the commercial at around 11:05 EDT this morning…

    (As usual, the ending got a little clipped; but since most of the music is yet again from Feeding Frenzy I just used my CD to create a nicer fade-out.)
