Tim Conway Jr. is a very fascinating broadcaster in Los Angeles. First and foremost his talk show is amazing. But there’s a few things that he does that really speaks to me.
I’ve become fascinated by the way he treats his audience. From that few dozen shows I’ve caught, he doesn’t open the phone lines for discussion outside of contesting (that yields no prizes). He is the entertainment. But he also isn’t afraid to look at the back end of the entertainment business. It seems like every show he’ll sneak in some sort of broadcast commentary. This melts me. I think the listener is always interested in the things that makes a radio show exist. Listeners like the behind the scenes stories in small doses. Tim knows how to dish this out in a very personal way.
If you hear the show from the start, you can’t deny the perfect theme song. Too bad he didn’t think of it himself — it was taken from a foreign cartoon show. So when this show intro was explained one night, it really made me sit back and think ‘wow’. He’s really letting his listener into something that turns into long-forming bonds. I would like to take a moment to share this segment recorded on 1/6/12 from KFI’s web stream:

We have a lot to learn. Here’s the original theme song for the cartoon.
