The Walt Bodine Show
Walt Bodine is said to have virtually invented the radio call-in show — in like 1930 — (not that other guy, Larry somebody or other). Have a full hour to kill? If you hang in, you will actually learn the reason (thanks to a caller) why the groundhog takes a single bite out of 6 tomatoes, rather than the 6 bites out of one tomato that any gardener would gladly grant him. This was a really fun interview (man, they love their tomatoes in Missouri), and Walt and his cohost Martha Julian are great.
