The Radio Journal of Ride Theory II

November 23, 2000
Dan Howland, Don

Dan Howland, Don Ignatz and Crosley continue riding all kinds of rides but concentrate their focus this week on Disneyland conveyances. More White Knuckle News Ride stories and another Ride Quest contest for callers, one of whom wins a ride on the Haunted Mansion accompanied by Crosley and Ignatz who explains the whole trip as we go. Lots of callers exchange ride info with us, Michael Eisner talks a lot and The Little Mermaid duels with him over intellectual property, and we end up almost getting two listeners hooked up in a tunnel of love.

The Radio Journal Of Ride Theory I

November 16, 2000
Dan Howland, Don

Ignatz Topo, editor of The Journal Of Ride Theory, joins Crosley Bendix for a show all about amusement park rides and Mr. Ignatz’s insightful zine on the subject. After a disagreeable phone call from Michael Eisner himself concerning the content of Ignatz’s journal, we mix a lot of material on all kinds of rides, especially the roller coasters of America and the theme rides of Disneyland. Regular features include the White Knuckle News Ride with topical reports about the darker side of amusement, and Ride Quest in which phone callers are quizzed about the world of rides in order to win a free spin on our radio roller coaster. Nice stuff and a very packed and focused production.
