A childhood friend of mine living in a nearby state wants to broadcast to a girl 5-doors east of his house and needs an antenna design that will favor the eastern direction. Once he’s on the air he plans to sing Elvis songs to her, in the hopes she will eventually date him.
I spent all this Sunday morning on the phone telling him about microphones, mixers and the Talking House Transmitter. After awhile he asked, “Don’t you go to church?”
I said, radio is my church.
He asked, “Aren’t you afraid of Hell?”
I answered, I already live in Missouri.

Isn’t this romantic. What if the girl doesn’t turn on the radio to hear this or would she even know he is doing this?
He should just take his guitar and sit in front of her house and play Elvis songs.
Does this girl even know who he is?
Is Missouri really “hell”?

Answering the Rhetorical
Mark has questions: “What if the girl doesn’t turn on the radio to hear this or would she even know he is doing this? He should just take his guitar and sit in front of her house and play Elvis songs. Does this girl even know who he is?
The guy sees the girl at junior college and has hinted to her that she should check out 1620, but she isn’t sure what he means only he thinks it should be obvious.
He’s one of those guys that comes alive on a microphone but completely folds up in front of a public audience.
This afternoon I sat in on his station and gave test announcements, the girl called up and wants to meet me. What should I do?

So the girl has been listening!
He could just ask for a date! After all, they know each other and they have Elvis in common.
But you have a problem here Carl. The girl your friend likes wants you! What should you do?
Do you want to keep your lifelong friend? My advice, try to discourage her and encourage your friend to ask for a date. Good things DON’T come to those who wait. He could try getting her to listen at a certain time on the radio and be serenaded…might work, and this is good old fashion romance like it should be….ask for the date on the radio!
But I still don’t know why it’s hell in Missouri.
Should I have my own advice column?
