Reason 1 went smoothly ... mostly ...

So the first day on WECK went mostly well. A few glitches and the expected lack of phone calls for the first day, but otherwise, solid.

For those who missed it, I explained a little bit about who I am, what I stand for, and what to expect (and not expect) on Reason.

Frank Miller, who will be hosting Ask the Pro at WECK joined me for a few minutes and was pretty engaging. I could get used to having someone to bounce things off of, but I will usually fly mostly solo.

And, of course, I talked about Eliot Spitzer’s zipper. I did mention a website showing photos of the Emperor’s Club call girls. The link is below.

Unfortunately, I was unable to record the show - and therefore won’t be able to podcast it.

For the rest of the week, I’ll be doing the show from the WECK studios on Genessee Street in Cheektowaga and will have guest hosts for Dialog. Paula Venee filled in today. Tom Christy will be on tomorrow. And Doug Young will host on Friday. Thanks to the three of them for helping me out.

Some more WECK details:

Tom Donahue and Harv Moore do the morning show from 6 - 9.

Harv hosts Tradio from 9 - 10.

I’m on from 10 - 11.

Ask the Pro with Frank Miller from 11 - 12.

Channel 2 News at noon ... at noon.

Local news block from 12:30 - 1 p.m.

Dennis Miller from 1 to 4.

Bill O’Reilly from 4-6.

And Brad Riter doing sports from 6 - 9.

Fox Sports takes us from 9 -1.

Jim Bohannan from 1 - 4.

Then more Fox Sports.

We’ll feature Fox News at the top of each hour and when news breaks. Today, for example, WECK carried Spitzer’s announcement live with commentary from Fox News.

All in All a great lineup and I’m honored to be part of it.

I hope we get more phone calls tomorrow. Feel free to call in during Reason from 10 to 11 at 783-WECK.
