But later in the post, she wrote that “Lisle delivered a few hours of entertaining radio during his Monday comeback.” That’s technically correct — if you’re only counting the running time of the show, which runs from 6-10 a.m.
But as for the time Lisle was actually on the air, well, that’s another matter entirely. It should be “hour,” singular.
So Robert Johnson at mysantonio.com kept a running tab this morning of Day 2. By his unofficial count, Lisle was on the air approximately 55 minutes of the four-hour show. It broke down to roughly three five-minute breaks per hour in the first three hours, and two in the final hour.
Lisle alluded to that this morning in the show’s final hour. After a really long music break, he came back on and said, tongue planted firmly in cheek, “Some of you may have been worried that I might turn this into a talk show. As you can tell, that’s not the case. This is a music intensive show. I just played more music in a row than I have in 25 years.”
Lisle hinted this morning that the show was a work in progress, and that his part might expand.
Lisle’s banter is worth the wait (well, almost) of sitting through songs you’ve heard a zillion times. He has yet to mention KISS by name. He mentioned the oddity of working for his former rival (“like going from the Yankees to the Red Sox”) and sitting in the chair once occupied by his “nemesis” (that would be Kris Winston, KZEP’s ’90s’ morning show host).
He riffed on various current-events topics, including Pop Tarts and political correctness, the Pope (nicknaming him “Eggs”) and Larry King’s stealth flatulence. He toyed with reviving the old “Lisle & Hahn” intro music (“Hocus Pocus” by Focus) before deciding to move on.
