A pal in the biz just asked me if I'd like to write for a children's show. Of course I said yes having no idea what I'm getting into.
Well okay 'some' idea. Back about 5000 years ago I produced, and hosted a children's radio program.
That's how I got the nick name "Uncle" from my comrades. Anyway now in my cranky late middle years I haven't a clue as to what today's little bleeps are up.
So I'll write what 'I' like.
Last time around I talked about the stuff 'real' kids had to deal with. Life, death, guns, drugs, sex, school yard politics, and laffs.
I had no illusions about childhood innocence. No such animal. Hey I'm an ex-kid I know the drill. Remember the dirtiest stories even invented were made up by 12 year olds.
Anyway as is the current custom on the air they want little three or four minute bits. Fine. That suits me. Just enough time for a juicy blog-like rant.
