Format Suggestions

Well, we are quite open to any and all types of format that most people would be comfortable listening to.  We'd like to know which is the best way you think the show should go, we can mix and match, go straight up, have secks, and what not.  Just leave a format suggestion here if you have one.  :P

Opening and closing with a song is definitely a good way to go, I vote you keep that trend up. Aside from that I think the talking portions are much more fun than the music, so whatever you do it should tend to lean towards a majority of time spent talking as opposed to playing music (though it should still be there). Also, getting specific guests lined up in advance might be a good idea, though you should still take random callers in when you're discussing a specific issue. Basically, come up with specific times in which people should call you. This way, you don't have a million people hitting you up on skype at once unless you WANT a million people hitting you up on skype at once.

I vote moving it to Friday, or having a friday night show of some kind. I think it would be awesome, because I only get a chance to even listen on weekends (Stuck with dial up -.- ).

If you're wondering, yes, this was copy pasted directly from my post.  I think it would be better to have it on the weekends simply for convenience (god dammit, I hate that word).

Yes, but Friday is drinking night for many of the collegiate listeners :(

Wait, that might not be a bad thing!

Yeah, but some of us actually do things on the weekend :P

Then again, some of us do things during the week, too, apparently :-\

Well, it would be a bad thing since a lot of people would be out on friday night...  but most of us AMV ppl aren't really the 'social' type  :P

Hawt pero action is needed :O!


Other than that umm, a sleeker setup. Like uhh actually having an idea what you're going to talk about before going on the air! Making sure technical issues are worked out(like someones mic being too low!). Maybe open some polls during the show and report results periodically through the show. Have a post show rap-up with maybe a link to an mp3 of the show and links to any videos or creators dicussed/interviewed.

More Ghey sects is always nice too :d

Actually, we fixed Knives audio being too low, now it got too loud and gave out a lot of feedback to us.  :P
A post-show wrap up is definitely soemthing we should address though .. maybe ill start taking notes of videos mentioned so we can setup links after the broadcast.

I think that that's a really good format, especially with where the interviewee/guest(s) would be in relation with the on-air callers.
