PHS – Tuesday, Dec 14, 1999:
Phil begins the show talking about being hungry and having to pick up a Christmas tree at 11:30 at night. He then reads an announcement about Charles Schultz’ retirement and he repeats it over and over, emphasizing different words each time. When he’s finished, David G. Hall picks his favorite. David then talks some changes he has in mind to make the show stronger. He wants to add a new segment, “The Phil Hendrie Comedy Players.” He’ll join Phil and reenact classic comedy bits. They try out several, including Monty Python’s “The Pet Shop,” but listeners call in to complain that David doesn’t know comedy. David also makes Phil perform a comedic moment from Stanley Kubrick’s FULL METAL JACKET.
For hour two, Phil is joined by Margaret Gray of “The Margaret Journals.” She’s on to discuss a Catholic magazine’s contest to update the image of Jesus for the new millennium. The winner of the contest was one who painted a dark-skinned Christ and used a female for the model. While Margaret doesn’t have a problem with the updating of His image, she feels that there are ulterior motives behind the selection of this entry. Because American Catholics and the Vatican have a contrary relationship, Margaret believes that they are using this painting as a means of physically harming the pope. She thinks they’ll probably Fed Ex the image of this new Jesus to the “Old Pole,” and when he sees it, he’ll be shocked into a cardiac incident.
The final hour of the show begins with some comments from Phil about how Italians don’t want to be associated with Africans and an ESQUIRE article about “The 13 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen.” He then welcomes his guest, restaurateur Ted Bell. Phil has done some work with the Emery House, an organization that helps kids who are visually impaired, and Ted has agreed to donate $50,000 to the foundation if he can first tour the facility so that he can observe the difference they make in the lives of children. But after the children built a 3’ x 2’ gingerbread house for Ted, he backed out of his promise because the house looked terrible. It was tilted and the door was crooked.
