Show Notes 12/22/2007

Show Notes:

Tonight was our First Annual Christmas Extravaganza and we had the opportunity to talk about Christmas memories, movies and television. We played some music clips of our favorite Christmas music. We had a very nice phone call from Wisconsin and they delivered a Christmas message to our listeners. We also had an unexpected surprise; K-Meat Free Form Rock called in and spoke to us while broadcasting our show on theirs. Hence we broadcasted theirs on ours. It was a lot of fun, we held two contests and gave away some prizes. As promised, our reporter Melissa Tow called in to give us the North Pole Report.

Special Thanks to:

Asher Heimermann

Merry Christmas To All & to All & Joyous New Year!

Show Notes


-Discussed Identity Theft including ways that it happens and some ways to prevent it. One form of theft is PHISHING. Scott from London suggested that when you receive files that you are not sure of, to transfer them to a disk and then to a PC that may not be a primary machine or considered a "junker".


-A Delaware news agency reported that they are looking at 8 individuals of interest for placing "skimmers" overtop the swipe mechanism in several WAWA stores and have stolen an estimated $75,000 to $100,000 from other people's bank accounts.


-Scott also reported that a mistake by an employee of the Government of the UK has placed 62 Million British residents in danger of Identity Theft because two disks were stolen which among other critical info, contained insurance information and the passwords top access it for all these citizens. That represents approximately 40% of the population.


-A brief discussion regarding Robert Hawkins, who murdered 8 people in a mall in Omaha, Nebraska before killing himself. The hidden message…do not get fired from your burger-flipping McDonalds job. We decided he needed no more time from us or our show.


-The Catholic Church wants a boycott of the movie, The Golden Compass. Who cares! The church needs a hobby and they need to get completely out of children's personal lives.

Keeping You Posted!

Hello Everyone!

Well, we have been going through the growing pains of the show's transitions and the LIVE format is taking off tremendously. So we wanted to post this and make sure that you have every available update that we can give you about what is going on.

First, the show is streamed here everyday as you can see by the embedded player on the Blog. Now this player will NOT deliver the live show (Saturdays 11:00 PM EST). For that you must visit the Blog Talk Radio site for LIVE stream:

Behind The Mike on Blog Talk Radio (LIVE)

Also, you may know that we have a new domain and website. The website is completely interactive by means of signing up for an account (FREE) and interacting on the blogs, forums, etc. The new site is coming along and the show will also stream there every day:

Behind The Mike HOME

Finally, as we have had some complaints...we forgot to think about the problem with iTunes. When we left the pre-recorded podcasting world and started with BTR we were so excited about all the hard work being done for us that we never thought about the fact that our RSS at iTunes had fallen dead. So for those who were left in the dark...sorry...here is that link:

Subscribe Thru iTunes

We hope to see you all on the show. Call in and chat with the hosts.

Behind The Mike Show Thirty

Show Notes:
The show goes on with number 30 as Joey Mike rides solo again. Vida is down with the bug so Joey talks about some sports stuff like WWE Wrestler Chris Benoit's death and why Minor League Baseball is all that and a bag of peanuts. There is a special bonus this week as the show ends with an episode of Murder at Midnight from 1946. So get some snacks and slide a chair near the computer because this week's podcast is driving back in time.

Stay Tuned....

Greetings Friends & Listeners,

As many of you know, I am finishing school and my final semester has been as difficult as George Bush trying to read his own words. Vida is taking care of some loose ends and between the two of us, we need a small hiatus to put things in order so that we can dedicate the proper time and energy that you all deserve.

So we will be halting production for a few weeks, maybe as many as 6 or 8. In the meantime, we will be hoping to load some Old Time Radio shows for you and we sincerely hope that you will stay tuned for our return.

Before we go, our dearest friend, Brian from Romeoville has sent a link that not only did I find interesting and entertaining but I am sure that you will too. So please have a look at this news piece about the dumbass leader of the free world:

Is Bush an Idiot?

So until we get things sorted out, we hope to see you on the other side of the hiatus and thank you for your continued support. With much love and godspeed to you all,

Joey Mike & Vida Corazon

Joey Mike welcomes back Vida and they ramble about the recent shooting at Virginia Tech, Don Imus is revisited and perhaps there should be more people "fired" for racist remarks. Also a double dose of Bushisms are on deck. Grab a seat and listen; it's so simple, a chihuahua can do it!

SPECIAL :: Make The Pie Higher by George W Bush

I think we all agree, the past is over. This is still a dangerous world. It's a world of madmen and uncertainty and potential mental losses. Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning? Will the highways of the Internet become more few? How many hands have I shaked?


They misunderestimate me. I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity. I know that the human being and the fish can coexist. Families is where our nation finds hope, where our wings take dream. Put food on your family! Knock down the tollbooth! Vulcanize Society! Make the pie higher! Make the pie higher!
