Loopy Lorna An extremely odd call from a scary lady. Tom jokes that he is afraid this woman might stalk him--but I don't know if it is a joke. He has had stalker trouble in the past that has required assistance from the police. 17:05

Depression Runs in the Family Mischke shows some concern after his boy appears in studio to read one of the most morose poems you've ever heard. After the reading, Tom muses where he might have gone wrong. 3:40

Mischke Tirade Tom lets loose on a listener. 1:30

The $200 Bill A lady goes to a Dairy Queen in Kentucky and manages to pass off a $200 bill. She spent $2.12 and received $197.88 in change. Tom gives this very Dairy Queen a call and commiserates how he had the very same thing happen to him... 3:48

Living the Hard Life in America A couple is nearing retirement and, unfortunately, it appears that their golden years could end up being quite a struggle. They have managed to scrimp and save and put together a little nest egg -- but they fear even that might not cover their most basic "needs". 11:48

The LBJ Treatment A very disturbing look at the man who once ran America. 4:49

Hi Florence! Mischke shares an amusing anecdote about an elderly lady that used to live in his Mom's neighborhood. 3:14

Americans Take Precautions Tom discusses the precautions that Americans are now taking after the September 11th tragedy. 2:49

Fighting Over Religion Mischke imagines what it must be like when Undertaker Fred discusses religion with his wife. What really makes this clip fascinating is that during this call, Mischke makes the prediction that Bob Davis will be taking over the Morning Show--months before it actually happens. 3:53

Timekeeper Ken This is a call from one of the original regulars of the Mischke Broadcast--Timekeeper Ken. Years ago, he used to call in to just announce the time and then he would hang up. That was about all his calls would ever consist of. About three years ago, Ken finally called back in to the Broadcast--after an absence of five years or so. Now he calls himself Songwriter Ken and I have never heard him call back in to the show since this very clip. 11:45

He Called me a Piss-Ant! Tom stirs up some trouble with the Directory Assistance Operators. 3:22

Why Listen to Mischke This is a sound clip from the mid-nineties where Mischke is trying to explain to a lady why she should listen to the Mischke Broadcast. 12:22

The Phantom in Studio In this clip, we witness the Phantom Caller's very first physical visit to the AM 1500 studios. At this time, Don Vogel had no idea about the true identity of the Phantom. To keep his true identity a mystery, Mischke appeared in the studio wearing dark sunglasses over a black ski mask. 3:14

Heal Thy Wounds Mischke discusses some freak product that is designed to heal your wounds. 9:28

R. T. Rybak's Radio Wreck This is a call from just a couple of weeks ago, but I just had to post it because it was one of the most bizarre moments in Mischke Broadcast history. 9:38

The Demise of the Postman Tom laments the demise of the Postman in modern America. 4:43

Should we Invade Iraq? This is an interesting call as it takes place in 2002, before America invaded Iraq. Mischke and a listener have a serious debate about what should be done with Saddam and his regime. 9:42

Moon River A beautiful version of a beautiful song--sung by the Mischke Boys. 0:56

You're Being Charged for this Call A Directory Assistance Operator gets tough with Tommy. 2:03

I'm a Flaming Moron I'm certainly not a frequent caller to the Mischke Broadcast, but I'm definitely up for a call once every few years or so.  This is a call I made around ten years ago and I don't know that I'd call it a best of clip -- it's better described as a sad, pathetic, sadistic clip where Mischke calls me every name in the book and rips me up one side and down the other.  Ouch.  The sad thing is that this is how most of my calls with Tom go.  The even sadder thing is that I am still a huge fan of the Broadcast and devote countless hours towards its preservation.  Can someone say Beaten Wife Syndrome???  Double ouch.  Now if you'll excuse me, I have to make a call to Dr. Laura.  I'm sure I'll get some sound advice, plus the added bonus of a severe tongue lashing that's around ten times worse than anything Tommy Mischke could ever deliver.  Triple ouch. 6:57

Suicide Call This is the most disturbing call I have ever heard on the Mischke Broadcast. It is made by a fella--sitting in his garage with the garage door closed and the car running. Sadly, I do not feel this call was a hoax. Take a listen and see what you think. 9:11

Welcome to Garage Logic Tom gets a call from a gentleman who believes he is talking with Joe Soucheray. Of course, Tom doesn't bother to set him straight and ends up taking on the role of the Mayor of Gumption County. 1:55

Suicidal Cop Mischke ponders how a cop could possibly shoot himself four times-- and still survive. Sure, it's great he lived, but it just begs the question-- how good of a cop could he have possibly been? 5:18

Little Lukey and Juiced Up Jerry This is a great call in that Mischke brings together both sides of the spectrum-- an innocent nine year old boy and a drunken Vietnam Vet. 21:21

I'm Not an Arsonist T. D. imagines how an arsonist might explain away the fact that he was literally caught red-handed--starting forest fires. 5:50

Know the Phrase that Pays! Mischke attempts to give away $100,000!! 4:32

Say Excuse Me! Tom is talking with a caller when they are suddenly interrupted... 1:01

Nobody Pranks Mischke! Mischke gets back at an unexpected prankster. 2:01

Biggest Interviewing Mistakes You Can Make Tom gives a few pointers for those about to interview for a job. 4:40

Dear Abby It is well know that Mischke is often awestruck by the profound wisdom of one Abigail Van Buren. He frequently reads her column and marvels at the wealth of knowledge that is seemingly always at her fingertips. During this clip, Tom shares a couple of prime examples of Abby's sage advice. 10:52

Harmonizing with Virginia Tom tries to schedule some time to harmonize with Virginia. 7:44

Stalker Mischke gets a call from a strange lady who has been leaving anonymous messages on his voice mail. During the call, he calls her to the carpet on this. What follows is a disturbing look at what can happen to someone who is in the public's eye. As I listen to this call, I can't help but think that this lady probably also hears secret messages during Beatles tunes... 11:40

Dr. Mischke Tom helps the callers work through some problems. 3:21

Looking for Champagne Mischke turns to Directory Assistance to find a little champagne. 1:05

Dial "9" to Reach the Program Mischke has trouble calling in to the program--so he enlists the help of directory assistance. 6:00

Mischke and His Boys Tom gets an unexpected call from his own kids. 4:07

The Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin Scandal In this clip, Mischke exposes the disabled for what they truly are-- devious, dishonest and disturbing. Thank goodness Tommy had the courage to out these thugs. 3:45

Praise the Lord Mischke wonders if Undertaker Fred might be going a little overboard in his use of the phrase, "Praise the Lord!". 0:43

Rockin' with the Phone Tom makes a little music with the phone. 1:43

Buried Alive! T.D. looks at the bright side of being buried alive. (The background noise you can hear during this call is due to Tom broadcasting from the Shack out at Midway Stadium.) 6:39

Vomiting Mischke reminisces about the last time he vomited. 1:40

Ross Perot Can Fix the Computers This call takes place in the late '90's--a couple of years before the dreaded Y2K. During the call, we learn all about Ross Perot's plan to save the world from computer madness. 2:57

Stephen King's Troubles Mr. King's writings come back to haunt him when he is most vulnerable... 2:02

Ladybug Troubles If you live in Minnesota (like me), you've probably noticed those freaky ladybug/Asian beetle thingys have started to make an unwelcome return. Mischke gives some pointers on how to get rid of them. 1:26

Exploding Stars Scientists have discovered the presence of three different Super Novas at the same time -- which means the average person could have the chance to witness a star actually blowing up. Tommy imagines what that must be like if you're sitting out in the fields with your honey on a moonlit night... 2:37

Calling Hitler The name says it all--Mischke attempts to phone Hitler. 1:28

Happy News with Nancy Fox This is a rare clip from the early days of Nancy's tenure on the Mischke Broadcast. You can tell it is old because Nancy actually delivers a bona fide newscast! 1:57

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.

Or, if you'd rather just talk to Mischke about some of the sound bytes above, or about weather in Buckman, Minnesota, or about how grass makes a different sound when you walk on it at varying temperatures, or just about anything else--you can click on the T.D. Mischke link to send him an e-mail.
