Computers: They Suck

In case you didn't notice, I had to cancel my show today. In fact, I'm supposed to be on the air right now. Well, all last night and this morning, when I tried to logon to Coyote Radio, I got the 404 code error, whatever the fuck that is.
Nobody from tech returned my calls.
I finally hunted down Mr. Blonde, who was in class at the time, and he said he would check it out personally. This was at 10:00 this morning, a mere two hours from showtime.
I decided to cancel. Many phone calls and e-mails are required to cancel a show like mine, so I decided to err on the side of caution and make sure all guests and as many listeners as possible were aware.
Well after I make the rounds and apologies, I get a call from Mr. Blonde, just a little after 11 am.
The server is up, and the station works. I confirmed with Webmaster Steve.
So, just as I finished cancelling my show due to technical malfunction, the malfunction is fixed.
Perfect fucking timing. There's not nearly enough time to get on the horn with everyone, re-line up my guests and get into studio for a 12:00 start.
So I gotta put my new show off for another week, after taking a week off for fucking finals week at school.

What a great fucking start to the summer. It's gonna be a long, hot, miserable, sticky one- I can tell.

Hope your day is going better than mine.
And oh yeah, fuck you too...

New Radio Show

Great news kids...

I've been given to "okey-dokey" to go forth with my new radio show, the Turzman Summer Extravaganza...
This will be my swan-song as I plan to take a temporary hiatus from Coyote Radio in the fall quarter to concentrate on my graduate work.
The show will air every Wednesday from noon to 4 pm, pacific on the New Coyote Radio...
http://coyoteradio.csusb.edu

It will be a combination of the old Mike Tursi Radio Program and SportsTalk...
Good music, funny skits, Tursi's takes on all things topical, in-studio guests and of course, the great SportsTalk, including the only weekly shark attack report to be found anywhere.

Unfortunately, at last check the Coyote Radio server was down, but I have made the appropriate phone calls and I hope it will be up and running for my show tomorrow. So, barring any technical malfunctions, the best 2 hours of talk radio on the Internet has turned into 4 hours of fun, news, music and other wacky forms of entertainment.

I'll give my spin on the Michael Jackson debacle of a trial, the re-birth of the Terry Schiavo controversy, and roving reporter Francis Melvin will join us live from London, England with a report on the assault of Tom Cruise with a water gun. That plus the best sports-talk show anywhere can be heard tomorrow at http://coyoteradio.csusb.edu from noon to 4 pm, pacific.

Your phone calls and e-mails are always welcome during the show. I can be reached at 909-537-5617 or 909-880-5617. My on air e-mail is, as usual, mike@turzman.com

You can always leave a message at the Turzman PhanFone hotline- 909-881-3654.

Take the time to sign the guestbook while you're here and join my message board to sound off against the most warped minds on the Net.
