Proof positive that Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter Rocked... [Feb. 9th, 2001|01:54 am]
Roy Janik
So more than a year after Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter died, I finally got access to statistics as to how many people were listening to Colleen and I on realaudio. The figures were highly encouraging. Most weeks, we kicked the ass of any other show broadcasting on Saturday. Those weeks that we didn't "win", we were very close to even with the others. I thought that maybe it was just the time-slot, but looking at stats for later semesters showed that that was actually a poorly rated time, overall. So yay for us. Average number of listening requests?? 40 to 50. Hell, yeah.

How the hell did you get that info?

Any why the fuck didn't any of those bastards call us to offer encouragement.

By the way, my dad was always one of those people. . .

I saw you standing in the airport with your chihuahua in your hand

Oh, I have my "sources". I'd tell you, but I'd have to kill you.

Actually, someone sent the KVRX lovelist a link to a "stats" page, as proof that people actually listen to realaudio. They only recorded stats in late 1999/early 2000. I was about to delete the link, when I realized that that was when we were on. Also, I recently talked to someone at a KVRX meeting who used to listen to our show.

I guess most people never called simply because they were using modems. Or they were mute. I hear we were really big in mute circles.

At any rate, if I ever become a full-time grad. student and not a full-timetool of the man, maybe I'll bring NMCB back for another go-round.

"I saw you standing in the airport with your chihuahua in your hand"

What a strange, sad song. I like this crazy magnetic fields band. . .

wiggling around like a baby seal

you have not a clue how popular it was here....i still run into people all the time who remember the show. they always ask about "destroyer" and roy, but no one seems to remember chris at all, i wonder if that had to do with the fact he WAS NEVER FUCKING THERE!

anyway, its starting to freak me out, i cant go to parties or bars without people asking me if i remember that radio show where this was this girl who meowed just like i just did!!!!! "it had some funny ass shit!" compliments are nice, but im sure drunken stupor compliments dont hold much water............., unlike MY bladder of steel!
