The Entire Transcript

I have here the entire script for my show. This is one way to see how my brain works.


6.3.2011 | Songs of Summer

[Try to keep intro at 90 seconds or less]

Good morning everyone! This is “The Attagag”, nominated for two Scottie Awards: Best Show and Most Interactive Host for moi. The awards ceremony is happening tonight. I’m excited. No matter who wins, I’m just glad that I was nominated. No, seriously. Its incredible that my passion for being on-air and playing some great music is being recognized by my peers and the brass. And I have you guys to thank you for this honor. Every request you made, every comment about the show is being fully appreciated with these nominations. You guys rock, and thank you for tuning in every week at this ungodly hour for the past several months.

(Shout-out to Scott)

This week, I’m gonna play some tracks that remind me of summer. All these were released during the hot and sunny months or were popular during the dog days of summer. Let’s start with this great cover of “Boys of Summer”, courtesy of The Ataris.

TOPIC (9:21AM-9:25AM)

1937-The Duke of Windsor marries Wallis Simpson. The Duke, once known as King Edward VIII, abdicated from the throne in December 1936. His brother, Prince Albert, would become King George VI.
Recommend “The King’s Speech”

1943- In Los Angeles, California, white U.S. Navy sailors and Marines clash with Latino youths in the Zoot Suit Riots. This would inspire a play by Luis Valdez and a 1981 dramatic movie. The play starred Edward James Olmos (he also appears in the film adaptation), won was nominated for a Tony for Best Feature Actor.

1989-The government of China sends troops to force protesters out of Tiananmen Square after seven weeks of occupation. The Chinese government still refuses to acknowledge that Tiananmen Square ever happened, despite annual commemorations and protests.
