Cast and Crew of The Bobby D Show
Devin the Devious Intern: This guy is the nuts and bolts behind The Bobby D Show. If this guy isn’t working The Bobby D Show probably isn’t running like it should. Despite being behind the scenes every day Devin doesn’t like to talk on air and is rarely heard speaking during the show, but it does happen every once in awhile. Devin also lends his voice to some of the bits we do here on The Bobby D Show. Servers as Shows: Executive Producer, Scheduling and audio work.
Cliffy Van Sparkington AKA Cliffy: Cliff has been with the show the longest. He has never nor do I think he has ever plans of ever speaking on air on the show. That and he lives about 200 miles away from the studio. Cliff is our IT guy. When we have a problem with computers, Cliff is the guy we go to. He is also the brain child behind this super little website you are seeing. You can always check out more of Cliff’s work at www.jaymoon.net/ Cliff also hosts a number of radio shows in Eastern Oregon as well. If you are ever in the area tune in him on 1450AM in La Grande, OR or 1490 AM in Baker City, OR. Serves as Shows: Head Technician, Website Guru and Technical Adviser.
CIVI AKA George AKA Mr. Hall of Fame: Bobby D has known Civi since the last day of school, third grade year. Together the co-authored one of the greatest two man football times of all time….’the thing-a-mabobber.’ Once called a mockery of the game, the play blossomed into something that most two man football teams can only dream about. Civi is our Sports Guru on the show. When we have a sports question, this is the guy we go to. He also has an uncanny ability to name where sports athletes went to college. Some of Civi’s more important quotes, “Have you met Darth?” “Kowaski” “Play like a champion today,” and many others. Check out Civi’s segment every Friday on The Bobby D Show. Serves as Shows: Head of Sports, Resident Fact Machine and Softball juggernaut.
ALL the Time Aaron — This guy is basically like a talent recruiter for The Bobby D Show Podcast. Aaron goes out and finds what’s hot and then we toss them on the podcast. I gave him the name “All the Time Aaron,” because this guy is always ready for a new podcast. You have to like that type of enthusiasm my friend. If you want Aaron to consider YOU or YOUR BAND for a podcast send him a message through our contact page. To date Aaron is responsible for the musical guest on Podcast #6, #7, #10, #12 and #13. Serves as Shows: Talent Recruiter, Programming Assistant and Head of Podcast Music.
About The Bobby D Show
The Bobby D Show is an American Comedy Radio program based out of Washington State’s Home Base Studios on the shores of Commencement Bay. The show runs from 5AM-10AM EST and PST but that can vary depending on what station you listen on. A full list of stations can be found on the home page on the right hand side.
The show got it’s start in January of 2006 on Eastern Oregon’s classic rock station KUBQ-FM in La Grande (A station the show can be found on again today). The show switched between afternoon and mornings before finally making it’s home in the morning for the last year it was there. The Bobby D Show left KUBQ-FM in October of 2008 to pursue other ventures and the show was put on hiatus.
In January of 2010 the show made a comeback on a very small internet station called ‘The Mix Radio.’ Quickly after what the show calls their ‘re-start’ the show was being picked up by affiliates all over the country and abroad.
The show starts off each morning with a run down of what’s planned for that show as well as Bobby D stating what number the show is on (The Bobby D Show only counts from the ‘re-start’ and does not take into consideration previous shows done before that ‘re-start.’)
The show delivers new content each and every morning to its listeners. Bits that are common on the show include, “Chance Encounters,” “Sports W/ Civi,” “Getting Even with Telemarketers,” “Work of the Weird,” and so much more. The show also includes celebrity news & notes, birthdays, listener emails, phone calls, text messages and what’s on the TV tonight each and every day.
The show is run on FM station is the US and Australia and can also be heard in Canada and England. The show is not limited to FM stations though. We can be heard on FM, LPFM, AM and internet radio stations. Anyone has the ability to pick up the show.
All the interviews we conduct are REAL LIVE interviews. We DO NOT can any interview (can means that they are faked). If we do ‘can’ an interview, it’s usually a joke interview that we got from somewhere else and we’ll always make it very clear that we did not do the actual interview. What you hear is what you get. We will not nor have we ever been a show that is in to canning interviews and making people believe that we really did it. That’s bush league and we have the ability to book our own guests. From President Bill Clinton, Dane Cook, Ashanti, Joan Rivers and so many others, all have been REAL LIVE interviews. We pride ourselves on being ahead of the rest by doing things the right way.
If you’re a station that might be interested in picking up the show you can reach us through the contact page. Please allow a day or two for us to get back to you. Most times it will only take a few hours but there are times that we get swamped and it may take just a little bit longer.
