Behind the Mic: Riggs

95.7 the Hog, Daytona Beach

On our daily Morning HOG radio show, we are

constantly challenged by the bosses to talk

about what is relatable to YOU, the listener.

And short of coming to your house or grabbing

a beer and shooting the shit, there’s no exact

science to knowing what that relatable radio

content really is. So we at The Morning HOG /

95.7 The HOG try to connect with our audience

through many different avenues. There is extensive

research, data collection, and a tremendous

amount of ratings minutiae that I won’t bore

you with that leads us to knowing what may

work on the air. But obviously this comes with

some bad reads and failed attempts. I decided

to reveal some of the segment ideas we have

tried and for whatever reason, they just didn’t

catch on…

The 8 o’clock Donut Toss - This plan involved

flinging Krispy Kremes out of our 3rd story

studio window toward cars racing down International

Speedway Boulevard. Passersby would

get to keep the donut that landed on or in their

car and redeem it for a clean one at participating

locations. The idea failed for several reasons,

including the lack of openable windows

and ants … lots of ants. Also, police frown upon

donut-related traffic snarls.

Captive Date - Lots of radio shows across the

country have attempted this rather innocent

idea where 2 callers are connected and sent on

a date… to our storage room, where they are

“sequestered” for 24 hours and are kept awake

during their date by a series of air horn blasts

every half hour. While our first couple did have

an emotional connection, we had to discontinue

the segment after our lawyers threw around

words like “kidnapping” and “false imprisonment”.

Lesson learned.

- Tell Off My Boss - Another great idea taken

down by unfortunate circumstances. I mean,

who hasn’t wanted to speak freely to their boss,

right? Well we solicited callers who wanted to

tell off their boss and had Guy do it for them.

This was hilarious radio until we found out one

“boss” was the Sheriff. Guy apologized, but the

damage was done. We made a donation and all

is well now.

- Find The Mustard - How frustrating is it when

you are dining and can’t find the condiments?

We know, VERY. So we sent Intern Steve to

a local eatery, mic’d him up, and had him announce

that he had taken all the mustard and

that whoever finds it first gets a limited edition

Morning HOG Mustard Bottle, numbered and

signed by Riggs and Guy. There were scuffles

and the threat of a man promising to “beat the

Grey Poupon out of him”, plus the novelty of a

unique morning show collectible was not as big

of a draw as we thought. We got the last laugh,

though, as the mustard was in Steve’s speedo

the entire time!

- RIGGS’ Rapid Paternity Test - Look, there’s

clearly still an audience for this stuff ‘cuz Maury

Povich still has a show, right? I did a lot of Internet

research and realized that helping people

find answers doesn’t have to take so long, so I

spent a substantial amount of slush fund cash

on the chemicals and equipment. Listeners

dropped their swabbed DNA in our radio station’s

mailbox and we would do a weekly test

and announce the results. While the segment

was time-efficient for the show, it proved scientifically

inaccurate and we ruined a lot of lives.

My bad.

- Request A Sound - We play plenty of music

but not nearly enough sound effects. So this

idea involved listener requests for their favorite

sounds. It went smoothly for a couple weeks

but our research showed after week 3 it was

87% fart sounds and a large jump in requests for

silence. Message received, segment suspended.

- The Morning HOG Birthday Piñata - This involved

a monthly drawing from our listener

database for a special delivery of the birthday

piñata. We stuffed the thing with 95.7 The HOG

t-shirts, stickers, candy, cash, and some beverages

from our Brew Review.

But paper mache is messy and difficult to get

dried and hardened, so the weight of the prizes

frequently broke through the HOG piñata

and turned the winner’s birthday into a mess of

mopping and apologies.

- What Letter Is In Intern Steve’s Fanny Pack? -

This segment combines listeners love for guessing

the alphabet incrementally and Steve’s love

of his fanny pack. Seems like a win-win, but

there’s always one turd in the punch bowl who

wants to argue that the Greek alphabet is alive

and well… we may have to re-tool and bring this

show sizzler back into rotation. Stay tuned.

- Velvet or Velour - We put Intern Steve on the

corner of ISB and Nova Road in a tank top and

kilt then had people reach under and determine

if he was wearing velvet or velour trunk briefs.

Again, the sensitive times we currently work in

left this segment in the dust as several contestant

complaints read “I’ll never be clean again”

and “What’s wrong with him?”.

Riggs & Guy Pudding Bus - This plan was

doomed from the start. Take a tour bus, a keg

of Lagunitas, lots of metal CDs, dancers, Madden

2019, inversion tables and a large inflatable

pool full of vanilla pudding and you have the

makings of one hell of a party. Then you hear

what you didn’t want to hear…

“Shit, we forgot the waivers”. Paperwork always

before pudding, so the bus never left the parking

lot. But don’t give up on this one either…

we know a guy.

If any of those happen to catch your attention

or if you have something you think we should

try on-air, swing by 957thehog.com and drop

a note in The Morning HOG Listener Suggestion

Box. We will be selecting some of your

ideas each Monday and test driving them on

the show. As always, reach out at 957thehog

on Facebook and Instagram and hit the studio

hotline at 386-866-0957.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Be a part of it!

Cheers!

Take-Out

Edition

The question of the day seems to be, where to go to eat, whether they’re

open, whether they have curbside service and whether they deliver.

There are so many things that are different now that we are dealing with

Covid-19. Believe it or not, several venues have gone out of their way to

make it easier to get food during these difficult times.

One of these places, Prima Pizza Cucina in New Smyrna Beach, indicates

their business has been skyrocketing ever since the start of the Coronavirus.

In speaking with one of the restaurant workers at Prima, he mentioned

that the reason business is bigger than ever is the fact that they

have limited seating and to go orders come in faster than having to turn

tables.

One thing is for sure, they don’t slouch when putting to go orders together.

I’ve had their dine in food several times and there’s no doubting

the consistency in the taste and quality. On my first take-out visit, at the

recommendation of a friend, I decided to try the meatballs and ricotta. He

was absolutely correct - these were some of the best meatballs I’ve ever

had. They were served with garlic bread and a rich and tangy sauce - absolutely

perfect, and left me full for the night.

On my second take-out visit, I went with the vodka pie pizza and this

experience was almost better than the first. It was cooked to perfection,

which is not always easy to find when getting a pizza to go. They definitely

pulled it off.

While the atmosphere isn’t quite as fun at home as it is going to a place

like Prima Pizza, there’s no doubt in my mind that the food experience is

almost the same, which isn’t the case for all of the restaurants in the area.

In writing this, I couldn’t help but pull up the menu and I think tonight will

be the third time in the last month that I’ll get a to go order; the baked

sausage and peppers just seem to be calling my name.

Make sure to check out Prima the next time you’re in New Smyrna Beach.

As usual, it will be packed (as much as is allowed by law, anyway). But you

can always count on the same quality when you get it to go.
