What makes listening to their banter so interesting is what they talk about. Invariably the subject matter is something that listeners, both male and female, can relate to. This past Saturday is a perfect example. In the two hours from 10AM to Noon they talked about recalling your first kiss; home security issues and credit cards; learning Spanish to aid in dealing with household help; the trend to do less housekeeping; and the difficulty in being completely honest with a friend when there’s a negative involved.
Steve Bertrand handles the news segments and doesn’t hesitate to give a male perspective to the subject. His story of the first kiss “to the girl in the brown sweater” was hilarious. They also take time after the news headlines at 11:30, to include a short segment of “Bertrand on Books”, one of Steve’s excellent author interviews from his Facebook site.
Few stations allow time these days to inventive and stimulating conversation which makes this two hour Saturday morning show such a treat. Listener phone calls are welcome, but judiciously inserted when relevant. One caller rememberd this week her first kiss in one of those old photo booths where you’d insert a coin and get that strip of black and white pictures. And that first kiss – I remember it well. We were 10 or 12 years old. Her name was Betty and we were in the back of her parent’s car. AND THEY WERE DRIVING.
