The Don Rogers Project Is Over

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Wed Feb 27, 2013 7:42 pm

There will never be another Don Rogers Show. Ben cancelled it today and refused on multiple occasions to give a reason.

I hope you all enjoyed the tapes. There will never be another one, ever, to ever exist. The project is CLOSED.

You managed to squeeze in five quotes in one response. That's got to be a new record.

What changed? You are asking what changed?

What changed was that four more shows were done. Shows that you participated in. That you were featured in.

It was nothing but a last gasp before rigor mortis set in. The chicken running around after its head was cut off; movement doesn't mean it's still alive.

Four more shows from September to February is not a radio program, it's a monthly magazine. And just as dead as the monthly general-interest magazine.

No, it's less than that; at best it's a once every six weeks fanzine.

When he can consistently do a show at least once every week without fail for a solid month, then he has a show; when it drops below once a month it is dead and remains dead until he can bring it up to the level of a minimum weekly series.

The CBS Radio Mystery Theatre did five shows a week for 11 years from 1970-1981. X-Minus One did a science fiction series every week from 1954-1957. In the days when doing radio production was a complicated, expensive process.

It has been dead since September and nothing has changed it; a few nerve jerks before rigor does not bring the corpse back to life.

Don Rogers is not Viktor Frankenstein and he's not capable of reanimating this Modern Collossus; he's no Prometheus and the fire has long since burned out.

So Don has to follow your parameters? Man....

Yes they did! Actually, they recorded three new shows a week and filled the rest in with repeats. Hyman Brown was something of a skinflint like that. Can't blame him, tho.

Anyways, I heard the show is just retooling..something to do with Skype, no doubt.

I refuse to live in a world where there is no Don Rogers and Tdarcos is posting greater than ten line messages.

I believe we picked March 13th.

I have the following callers lined up - a guy who owns "Branch Out Cider" and an actor in the movie Consumed.

I was jsut now installing a bathroom light and revisited some DR episodes while I worked. Listened to the Jan. match game show, the Feb. show and the show that started to be about microphones but ventured briefly into Game of Thrones and moved on to RobB's video games.

I must say that the Don Rogers Show needs to continue! At any cost. This is a social imperative!

That is very kind of you, Vark.

Our next one is scheduled for March 13th -- I am going to try my hardest to get a rapid fire, "taking some calls" thing going. Even if people are on for 20 seconds.

I know it kills Ben that he starts these projects and half a year later has 2 "live" callers listening to show for it. The project then gets abandoned. I am trying to be sensitive to that. The Don Rogers Show shall live, March 13th.

Just keep plugging away, never mind how many people listen live. It's not that kind of world anymore, really. It's all about the content, not the listeners. I still bust out laughing when I hear Paul imitating the Skype ring (surprised that's not a sound effect).

Is this still for real or is there more retooling?

Back in the 1970s on the Univac 90/60 mainframe, VS/9 Operating system, in the EDT text editor we'd have written something like
@on all change "January" thru "December" and "1st" through "31st" to "the next"

In simple terms, insert any date and it will be cancelled for retooling.
