I've been a fan of the Mischke Broadcast for over twenty years and have been an avid archivist of the show. T.D. Mischke is the best thing going on radio and the humor of the show is second to none. What follows are excerpts from the Broadcast over the past twenty years. Sound quality ranges all the way from horrible to excellent. The only thing the individual bits have in common is that they are funny--darn funny. Enjoy and keep in mind that I will do my best to change the content of this page as frequently as possible. Also, all of the bits have been recorded in mp3 format. Don't mention mp3 to Tommy--just tell him you hear weird sounds coming out of the computer...

The Don Vogel Show!


Ever since I started this website back in 2004, I've always left a request up that if anyone had any tapes of the old Don Vogel show with Tommy Mischke -- please let me know.  Well a decade later, it has finally paid off!  A gentleman by the name of Joel Nehl out in Oregon has sent me not one, not two, but thirteen entire broadcasts of the Don Vogel Show -- back in 1992!!  This was the early days of Mischke and Vogel working together and the shows were truly fantastic.  I was a fan of Vogel, but I had never heard complete shows of him and Tommy together -- until now.   Today, we have a Bush running for office, gas is around two dollars a gallon and for the past month or so, my drive time radio has been the Don Vogel Show.  I'm constantly checking my calendar to see if it's 2015 or 1992 -- hard to tell...  Anyway, as a Christmas present to all of you, please enjoy three classic Don Vogel Shows featuring his sidekick -- Tommy Mischke.  These shows can be found immediately below.  Enjoy -- and much thanks goes out to Joel Nehl for providing these tapes!


The Don Vogel Show - September 3, 1992 -- This show features Vogel and Mischke broadcasting live from the Minnesota State Fair.

The Don Vogel Show -- September 11, 1992  -- This particular show starts off with Mischke eerily predicting the imminent death of Don Vogel.  From there, we also hear Vogel discussing how he wishes he could throw out the very first pitch for a new baseball team coming to town -- the St. Paul Saints.  It's odd to hear this event discussed before it has ever happened.  The story of what ultimately went down has become legendary and we've heard it so often, it is just fascinating to actually hear the genesis of the whole thing.  Other highlights include Mischke and Vogel recreating current news events.

The Don Vogel Show -- September 12, 1992 -- In this broadcast, Don Vogel is obsessed with putting together his very own Soul Band.  He had just watched a movie called "The Commitments" and was completely inspired.  Mischke isn't so sure about the whole thing, but Don is on a mission to put together a band comprised of hosts and fellow employees at the Talk Station.
