Tommy's Take on National Tragedy This cut is from the beginning of the Mischke Broadcast on the infamous date of 9/11/2001. The World Trade Center in New York City had been destroyed earlier in the day and, needless to say, all radio and television broadcasts were thrown aside as endless news reports demanded our attention. Oddly enough, the Mischke Broadcast still took to the airwaves that horrible night. Mischke gave an elegant monologue to start the show and then stepped aside to let his callers vent their anger, talk about their fears, or just express their sorrow. 11:11
Mischke's Musings A few years ago, Mischke was approached about taking his show nationwide through national syndication. He agreed to try it--a deal was made--the show went national--and Tommy promptly went through a bout of depression and, quite frankly, self-destructed. Throughout his national debut, nothing but repeats were aired as Tom battled depression. After two weeks of this, stations backed out, the deal was dropped and Tom reverted back to broadcasting only out of KSTP in good ol' St. Paul, Minnesota. This sound byte takes place just a few weeks before the nationwide syndication was due to start. Tom is confused about many things and has a rather frank discussion with the listeners. 17:53

Blow and Al This sound clip is a tribute to one of my favorite callers on the Mischke Broadcast -- a man simply known as "Al". Unfortunately, Al just recently passed away from a sudden heart attack and I, for one, will sorely miss him. I think any fan of the Mischke Broadcast can't help but grieve this loss. When Al first started calling in, Mischke led the poor guy to believe that he (Mischke) was the official weatherman at KSTP. Al fell for this hook, line and sinker and Mischke had more fun with this than should even be legal!! This particular call is my favorite from the "Blow and Al" series of calls. Enjoy. 26:31
Postage Stamp Prices Tom expresses his outrage with the United States Postal Service. 4:01
The Phantom Caller Another clip from the early years--long before The Mischke Broadcast even existed. This is a young T.D. Mischke calling in to the Don Vogel show back in the late '80's. 3:07 Special thanks go out to Don for this clip!

Virginia Going Deaf This is a call from a Mischke regular that was made back in 1999. Virginia used to call in quite frequently, but her calls suddenly stopped a few years ago. Many might remember her as the yodeler. 6:57
Squaw The Idaho State Legislature decided they would not change the name of geographical features that used the word Squaw. Tom discusses their reasonable decision. 1:37

In Search of Billy T.D. decides to try and call an old friend by the name of Billy. Bill was a member of the 1927 Yankees baseball team and Tom attempts to make a call, just to see if the fella is still alive. What results from this attempt is a long, strange and wondrous journey... 30:22
Gay Methodists The Methodist Church is split over the issue of homosexuality, so Tom tries to make a few suggestions--just to help out. This riles a listener who ends up calling in and getting into a rather heated exchange with Mischke. 7:49

Special Note: If anyone out there has some recordings of the show that Tom Mischke and Don Vogel used to put out together, I would love to grab a copy if at all possible I was a big fan of The Afternoon Saloon and never got the chance to hear Tommy and Don working together I think that must have been an incredible show Just click on this webmaster link to send me an e-mail.
