OMG radio interview!

Ahhh. What a day. Radio interview on KROQ 106.7 (!), getting to talk to Mandy (!), two exams in a row (ow) and a splitting headache later (double ow)… that’s thankfully gone now (thanks Advil Liqui-gels)…

A pretty eventful day to say the least.

The interview went pretty well. A lot better than i expected. Oh and come now you guys in the comments, they weren’t even that hard on me! And of course they’re gonna play up the whole stalker angle. I think that’s pretty much the entire ‘hook’ of the Pepsi Girl site. At least in the beginning anyway (you’ll notice that i eventually toned down that aspect of the site after i found out her name).

The guys at the station were actually very cool. Bean sent me an e-mail after the show was over to say thanks and stuff and how Mandy really enjoyed everything. And the executive producer of the show also e-mailed to send over a picture of Mandy with the K&B gang.

I don’t think i’m even aware of the magnitude of getting interviewed on teh KROQ. But i’m sure those of you from the West coast know better. According to Michael, the guy who runs that K&B recap blog, “The Kevin and Bean Show is consistently one of the top 5 shows in LA, regularly beating out even the likes of Howard Stern, so congrats!”.

“It’s probably top 3 US stations…” says Embus. So maybe i should pat myself on the back? Haha.

I was actually debating on whether to tell them the whole (and rather boring) story about how i actually started the blog but figured it would be better (and definitely a lot more funnier) to just play up and go along with the stalker stuff. And besides, there’s a link to the whole (boring) ‘behind the scenes’ stuff of how the Pepsi Girl blog came to be in one of the posts on there anyway. But it’s pretty easy to overlook though, so you might have to be pretty eagle eyed to notice the link. I posted a recap of the interview over at the Pepsi Girl blog. Nothing major. But check it out anyway.

Anyhow, thanks to Ryan for making the MP3 of the interview, which you can download here.

Funny thing is, i didn’t even realize that i’d said “One to frame, and one to… you know” (in reference to how many copies of Mandy’s Maxim issue i’d get).

“One to… you know”

I really did mean to say “read”. I did!

  2. It’s amazing how popular you’ve gotten, man. Try to get Miramax to do a movie about your life.

  9. Good job! Are they going to mention your site in the Maxim interview? Internet, radio, and print!

  10. You should have asked her out on the air, it would have been hilarious and you would have looked like a confident stud with a good sense of humor instead of a big, sloppy set of vagina lips. Still cool that you were on the air though.

  11. haha i was thinking about that. but decided against it. there was already more than enough creepy stalkeriness during the bit. didnt wanna add more 😛

  12. Hey actually Kevin and Bean weren’t that hard on you they can be harsh on guests and while they did push the stalker card it was more in jest. You sounded really nervous which is understandable considering all you had heard going in to that damn interview and the fact that you were going to be talking to Mandy as well. It concerns me that as a regular listener to their show that I had to make extra certain to listen to the show at work since you would be on and probably wouldn’t have just to hear her. Damn my priorities are all screwed up!

  13. yeah, but it’s all cool though. they didnt really do anything that i would’nt have expected. it kinda reminded me of the time i got on MTV (MTV Select) and spoke to Mike Kasem on air. and he’s notoriously hard on guests sometimes. but he was surprisingly easy on me (this was way back in like 1997 i think). he did say at the end something to the effect of “see? i can be nice sometimes” or something like that. i’ve come to expect dj’s/vj’s to be hard on guests sometimes. all part of the package!

  14. I think I remember you saying, “One to…you know…look through.” But the whole show seems pretty noisy so it’s hard to hear over the other jackasses.

  15. you’re right! doesn’t matter though. all in the name of comedy.

  17. You should have made a shout out to me, Bus-Man & Bubba. Oh well!

    It was good times listening to you on the show. You are less of a pussy than even YOU thought! Good for you. *thumbs up*

  18. I promise to make a shout out to Bubba during my next radio appearance… meh?
