A not-so-good radio interview

I'm scheduled to do two radio interviews today, one for The Don & Mike Show this afternoon around 3 Eastern, one this morning in about 30 minutes. I just had a third, unscheduled one.

Got a call from a guy with the Kidd Chris Show, on Infinity Broadcasting's KSRX, 102.7 in San Antonio. He wanted to know if I'd be willing to do an interview. I said "sure", as I usually do.

The interview went about the same as usual, until they had a caller who wanted to talk to me. I thought at the time it was a random caller until I read Chris's web page, where I discovered the guy is a regular, if not member of the cast. I should have hung up when he asked some provocative question ending with "why don't you grow up?" Instead, I replied, "I think I'm grown up enough to enjoy myself doing unconventional stuff." He then asked if I made the suit to catch young boys with; Chris asked me if I caught young boys with it, I said, no, and then they went to silence - I thought at the time they were just working through a delay, but decided later they were just making some joke out of my hearing. At any rate, it was over after that. (I didn't hang up; they went on to something else.)

This is the first jock who has had the guts to try to get nasty with me while I'm on the phone. I don't know if I respect him for it, or if it just signifies he's that much more over the edge than the usual radio jock...but, at any rate, I don't think I'll be talking to them again. (Not that I expect them to call me back, anyway.)
