For all those who haven't heard, we have moved studios!!! I know, we have only been talking about moving for the past...uh.. forever; but, just so you know our new office is located at 50 W Broadway(300 S). So, I know what you're thinking and no, you can't pick up your prizes and concert tickets at the old Trolley Corners stations. We won't be there, so don't try. It is a giant building with "Broadway Media" on the side. You can't miss it.
It looks like this!
Broadway street(or 300 S, whatever you want to call it) is full of history. This new building/home to X96 is about to join this historic part of town. Let's take a look at what else is on Broadway!
Pictured above is the old Zephyr club, located on 301 S, West Temple. This club, closed since October 2003, used to be home many great live acts such as Morrisey, 311, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and many more. Now it just sits there and takes up space. There has been talk of turning it into a parking lot, but so far nothing has been done.
This old Deli was established in the 1960s by a german couple, the Linners. Since the death of founder, Erich Linner in 1993, Linner's hasn't had much business and is now closed.
Squatter's Pub(147 W Broadway) has become a hub for local brews in Salt Lake City and has been a longtime advocate of local business for the community and is powered by BlueSky wind power
Broadway Hotel was built shortly after the completion of two major rail depots in the city. Built circa 1905, this is on eof the earliest hotels in Salt Lake City.
Okay, enough with the history lessons. Now let's show you our office and our shiny new toys!!!
(Since when did we get an Atari in the new office?! Oh wait, it's just editing equipment. Maybe I can still get it to play some old pitfall games..)

Hey, Organized Intern here. Just wanted to remind you all, in case we haven't discussed it enough, that we're moving today! Which means that for the next week or two, things might go wrong... so it should be exactly what you're used to!!
But seriously, folks, the podcasts might not be up in a timely manner; if you call in - the interns might accidentally hang up on you; the live video feed may go in and out; the possibilities of what could go wrong are endless. So, please, be patient with us as we transition to the new (and hopefully MUCH MUCH BETTER) studio located at:
50 W Broadway (300 South) Salt Lake City, UT 84101
If you have any thoughts on how our magical new station can make your ear holes happy, you be sure to email Richie T email@example.com and let him know how.
And thanks for listening!

LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW HERE
How did you get involved with the Oddball Comedy Festival?
I’ve had a good relationship with Funny or Die and when they were formulating this tour they started grabbing people that they know and people that they like. That was pretty much it. It was pretty mellow. It was just like, “Hey do you want to do this thing?”
Did you start in comedy?
No, I had actually started in music and was very serious about it for a very long time, but I had done some comedy, drama, and improv in grade school and high school. It was definitely part of my upbringing; I just didn’t make it more formal until I moved to New York in 2003.
How did you get involved with Comedy Bang Bang?
I was involved from the beginning. I had done Scott’s LIVE show and Podcast, as well as written the Comedy Bang Bang Theme song when it was a podcast, so it was a natural evolution from there.
You were part of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ last year as a fake director and nobody knew who you were. What was that like?
It was a surprise to me too. It was really, really fun wearing a stupid disguise which I improvised before getting on camera since they didn’t have a wardrobe for me. I just told them to grab me these few things, so I grabbed a woman’s sweater to wear.

Hey, it's Organized Intern to share about my most exciting day as a Radio From Hell Intern (so far!)...
It was a morning just like any other Radio From Hell intern day. I got up before the sun and was pulling into the parking garage just as Richie T was arriving, which meant I was late. As he held the door open for me he said, "I have a special task for you today.”
That’s always bad news.
He walked me to a room I hadn’t been in and opened the door. I was mentally preparing my “no means no” speech when I saw the room and was stopped by a pile of crap. I really mean that: a pile of crap was impeding any further movement into the room. It was the most terrifying and glorious sight I’d ever seen – chairs, boxes, papers, chairs, garbage, CDs, electronics, chairs, rubber bands, room dividers, chairs, jingtinglers, trumtookas, slooslunkas, chairs, chairs, chairs, and more chairs.
“I think your mission here is clear,” and he probably said other things but my brain was too busy being excited. It was like the Room of Requirement in Harry Pottr but instead it was the room of Aquirement, because this isn't Hogwarts. Regardless, I got to ORGANIZE it!!
Christmas had come early.
As with any attempt to organize chaos, the first step was to gather my supplies. For this task I needed a sharpie, clean boxes, and some more interns.
To start, we needed to empty the room. With plenty of space to use in the hallway we emptied the room and sorted into two piles: Garbage and Keep. I have to admit, this was the hardest part of the job because you never knew if a rat, or a (shudder) spider was going to crawl out from underneath something.
Here’s some fun/disgusting/weird stuff that we found: A fake Christmas Tree; 4 boxes of white catalog envelopes; a red feather boa; one smut novel; a very old "On Air" light; 17 giant empty black binders; and one slice of half eaten pizza. I guess there is something so disgusting that even Smitty, the X96 Corporate Rat, won’t eat it.
Once we were rid of the garbage, we sorted the remaining stuff into boxes, and labeled the boxes. Sorting and labeling was definitely the fun part – I was so bummed I left my label maker at home! Good thing the nuns beat good handwriting into me! All the neatly labeled boxes were put back in the room, ready for the Big Move.
All in all, it took four interns, three hours, 4 new boxes, 5 old boxes, and 11 trips to the industrial garbage bins outside. Hopefully Richie T has more rooms like that for me to sort this next week – Hey, it’s better than getting paid! For me at least.
