So, Bad Dog returns to the air waves Friday, 3 December for a couple of weeks. He'll be going back to the hospital for a final round of a lighter chemo and then by the first of the year, if not sooner, he'll be back full time with us.
Now, here is the interesting part. It seems that he cannot be around anybody due to his weakened immune system. So, to avoid any potential risk of contamination and catching something like the cold or worse, he is at home. And he wants to come back to work. Thanks to the miracle of modern radio technology, we are going to make this happen.
Bad Dog will have, at his home, a remote rig. It's one of the pieces of equipment we use when we are broadcasting from a bar or car lot or wherever. This will be good as there are a lot of folks who want to have him back on the air as soon as possible and this certainly fills the bill. But, this is going to be kind of a strange experience for us as there is going to be a change as to how we actually do the show.
Normally, we have the ability to use non-verbal communication to sort out our timing or to locate a recorded bit to back up what we are doing. Not now at least. We'll more than likely be stepping on each other and it will sound a bit awkward at first, but there will be a strange transformation that will take place as we go through this. We'll be able to read each others mind more so than normal. And just when we get that little talent down, he'll be off again for a bit.
Nevertheless, this should make for some interesting radio over the next few days. It will different, it will certainly be fun and it will be good to have him back on the air again.
