Most Interesting Talk Radio Program

Elk-Mating Ritual Show, KVRX

Usually, the phrase "freeform radio show at KVRX" implies more music than talk. Not so for John Erler. Every Thursday morning when the maestro puts on his fez - the order of Elkmaster, of course - and takes up his duties as keeper of the elks, listeners are treated to his exploits with Laura, the DJ apprentice. Sometimes it's riveting daily news as read from the pages of The Daily Texan in the voice of He-Man's nemesis Skeletor. Sometimes it means calling John's friends in the early morning to put them on air sleepy and slurry. You never know when one of John's fans will call in to ask for a date, tell him about last night's dreams, or just to sing a little song to the elk. He would like you to call in too, if it's not too much trouble. Oh, and it's probably good to mention that his musical tastes are so far afield from your general "eclectic" that the chitter chatter is not the only thing that keeps his loyalists tuned in.
