Gloss
« on: July 02, 2016, 08:20:29 pm »
So no self gloss. One thing I've never understood.

Does this mean that after a few months of taking some surfer guy's calls Rome said, "You know what?
This guy's calls are as smooth as silk. I think I'll name him Silk."

Or after listening to some scruff ramble on for months Rome said, "This guy needs to check into rehab and
his chilli sucks. I think I'll call him Trapper."

"This guy's a condescending asshole who kisses my ass. I name him Iafrate"

Etc etc...give me a friggin break.

Silk has something to do with the guy's last name.   
Iafrate is because he won a listener contest once where the prize was to shoot pucks while Rome guarded the goal during an intermission of a Kings game or something like that.

I don't know about Trapper, but I think I remember somebody asking him where it comes from recently, like in the last week or two, via a tweet or Ask the Pros, and I can't remember what he answered  -maybe someone can look it up. It was recently

I have a feeling that in the early early years you could call in and call yourself whatever you want. Then they put some kind of moratorium on it. I can see it. Most of the handles people give themselves are so cliche and stupid it would drag the show down.

if you try to get in with something thats an obvious gloss, like Iceman, then you'll get run.

if its just a nickname or persona, like silk, boatie, leff, trapper, then its all good  :koolaid

the Grump was the best of them all.  I got him to agree to call Jay Mohr's show after he quit on Rome but Jay was on vacation that week and I forgot to email the grump back.

Did you also advise the poor guy on making a tandem call with that other muppet?
