    Behind the Scenes at IWS Radio

    in Comedy

    Putting together a show that attracts a vast and diverse worldwide audience is a monumental task. Few people know the real struggle and effort it really takes though. This week Matt-Man and Jayman will take you behind the scenes of IWS Radio and give you a little glimps into the world if big-time internet radio.

    Oh sure on the surface it all looks so glamorous. The fame, fortune, groupies and all the love and adoration from the fans. But, there's a dark side to internet radio too. The long hours Matt and Jay have to put in. The writes and re-writes of scripts trying to get it all perfect. The intense, seemingly never-ending prep sessions. THE PRESSURE!! Internet radio isn't for everybody.

    And what of the IWS Players? Matt and Jay are such exacting taskmasters that the pressure on the Players is almost too much to take some weeks. Everyone at IWS Radio is so talented that the competition is fierce to get audios on the air. People put in so much effort tying to come up with something that will be acceptable to Matt and Jay that sometimes they break. The emotional toll can just be too much.

    You will be amazed at everything you learn about the making of a hugely popular internet radio show. And, more importantly, you'll have a new found respect for Matt and Jay and the effort it takes to bring you this show every week. Plus, as always ... YOUR CALLS ... because the fans are the heartbeat of IWS Radio!

    in Comedy

    Here at IWS Radio all we do is give and give and give and we do it all for you, our listeners. That's exaclty what we're doing this week too. Matt-Man has to fill in for the new chick at the Beer Mine (conveniently located at the corner of Burnett and Elmore roads in Bagwine, Ohio) but is he letting that stop him from entertaining the masses? Hell no! Our solution is to just do the show in prime time baby!

    So join us and our correspondents like Paul Piatt, Bobby Kraft, Joshua, Slyder, Tammy Tibbles and others for non-stop fun and games! Also, those phone lines will be open as always for you to call in with whatever is on your mind too!

    IWS Radio isn't Dead, it Just Smells Funny

    in Comedy

    There's too much and not enough going on in the world right now. Well, at least in Matt-Man and Jayman's worlds. So, Matt and Jay are just hanging out shootin' the breeze and talking about whatever they think of this week. Maybe they'll touch on politics or sports or pop culture or just do some navel gazing. Who knows? One thing we do know is it will be funny. Probably.

    April is National Poetry Month so there will be some rhyming going on and maybe even some hot haiku action! You just never know with these two talented and irreverent guys. Matt and Jay are obsessed with so many things yet they are very easily distracted. You have to pay close attention or you'll get lost trying to keep up wtih them.

    There might be some trips down memory lane too. Matt and Jay and the gang might revisit some old ideas like "The Third Person Show" or maybe "The NPR Show." Or maybe they won't! That's just how wacky those two are! There will also be bad songs of the week and a discussion about Jayman's sudden love of punk rock and Frank Zappa.

    Canadian Bureau Chief Jamie Mapleleaf and the IWS Players will be along to help entertain the masses. They've got a blank canvas this week and I know you can't wait to see what these artists paint this week. We know it won't be a boring old landscape and there won't be any happy little accidents! Plus they'll be taking your calls! The phone lines are always open at 661.244.9852!
