We hope you’ve been enjoying the installments of our burgeoning Big Something Radio Progamme as much as we have. What we like most is seeing how the seed of a single story about a date with Lorne Greene led to a coming-of-age date with a Darth Vader, which was followed by a tale of long-delayed dreams tied to a tape of a 1965 interview with Lorne Greene. It’s great, Lorne Greene-fueled community-wide conversation, of all absurd things to happen here. And what we plan to do now is take these stories and start shaping them into an hour-long radio program, but we want to hear more of your stories related to these stories’ themes.

So, with the help of the notorious KRCC elves, we’ve created The Big Something Phone Booth Confessional where you can call us and tell us your story.

Right now we’re looking for stories about anything related to: brushes with fame (backstage hijinx, celebrity near-misses, the fame that got away, your own personal 15 minutes and how it happened, ended, ruined your life, saved your marriage, etc.) diets gone wrong, Star Wars love affairs, Lorne Greene encounters to specific incidents involving Alpo Dog Food.

Just call the The Big Something Phonebooth Confessional at (719) 434-DOJO, that’s (719) 434-3656 and you’ll have 5 minutes to tell us your story. If we like your story, we’ll include it on The Big Something Radio Programme. Be sure to leave your name and phone so we can call you back and please specify whether it’s OK to use your name on air.

As an added incentive, the person who leaves the best story within the next 48 hours will receive two free passes to this weekend’s Meadowgrass Music Festival at La Foret in Black Forest, a $100 value!

Thanks! thebigsomething@krcc.org

    Hey, Mr. B. Something, sir, what’s this about free tickets? All I got for my scintillating story was a dusty ol’ cup of herbal tea. What do you take me for, your mother or something?
