Mark and NeanderPaul, KSLX Phoenix, Holiday Heart Attacks

The question is almost always:  what did you do with your content choice that defines the show, proves its sense of humor, and provides a payoff or destination no one else can.  Oftentimes, shows find lists or statistics they think will keep the audience engaged.  Mark and NeanderPaul, KSLX, Phoenix found one such statistic about holiday heart attacks – and the prime time around Christmas that most happen.  As is, it’s a tad boring, even leaning to the morose to note this to listeners this time of year.  Sharing this with the audience, opening the phones, or even doing a serious interview around the topic doesn’t fit our goal of creating humor.  But, they did.  We pick our moments to do parodies on this show – they did one here by choosing an iconic Christmas carol, doing a re-lyric to have some fun, kept it short and efficient, and effectively used what was a small stat and walked the audience to laugh about the topic.
