Days in a daze, or the weekend to some

Well, it's time for the weekend again and as many of you know, that means two days off for those who work five-day weeks. Those of you who might be drunken bums won't be able to tell the difference between a Sunday and a Tuesday, true, but nonetheless things change to weekend schedules come Saturday.

One change is the time. Things should be getting darker after we suck an hour back from the clock, come 2 a.m. Sunday morning. That's when it becomes 1 a.m. Sunday morning and nothing short of a lightning rod from a giant god can stop that. Then, around 5:30 on the following Monday, darkness will fall. People will become frightened. Others will become courageous. Then, Tuesday in America, everyone will vote. Mostly everyone. Drunken bums won't, because they don't know the difference between Tuesday and Sunday. So why even tell them to go an vote. Sober bums, incidentally, will be fine, will probably vote and keep track of the days in a week.


The Oct. 28 Chronicles program featured a lot of reference to a dead film maker named Ed Wood. We mentioned because you can buy Wood's long-lost movie there. Remember, this is adult material, although it contains all the childlike qualities that made Wood the terrible director he was.


SRN Radio 1 now runs exclusive segments called Common Sense Cotolo, which are unique monologues that all of you should check into, or check out, whichever phrase fits you best. These segments are the start of a project that is under way but only in the idea stage, which means no one has done a damned thing yet. More about this project in future blog pages. For now, have a good weekend whether you know what days they are or not.

Dear listener,

The final show of October, 2004 is up ahead; Oct. 28 to be exact. This can mean only one thing. Actually it could mean any number of things but why make a list? November is rearing its ugly head. Why is November's head ugly? Because that phrase always relates to ugly heads. No one ever says something is rearing its beautiful head.

So, November is the penultimate month of the year and this year it brings with it a Presidential election and Thanksgiving. When Thanksgiving comes, many people will not be giving thanks for the results of the Presidential election. Others will. It's that ugly head thing again, friends.

But let's not lose our attention, which should be on this program, Cotolo Chronicles, and how it affects and entertains more and more people every Thursday evening. I am writing this on Sunday and you can bet your bottom dollar that I am excited, already, about next Thursday's show. Why would I not be betting my top dollar? Why the bottom one? Maybe because it is an ugly head that is reared when a bottom dollar is wagered.

So, I will check in here again before Oct. 28 and let you know if there is anything particular you should be excited about for the Oct. 28 show. The usual stuff will suffice, and that is enough for any level-headed person to absorb. Makes you wonder, though, doesn't it? I mean, why level-heads can absorb at a greater rate than unlevel ones.

SRN cuts, strikes and closes deal for broadcasting

Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy, because this week, Oct. 21, Chronicles will also be available from the Canadian homebase of SRN Mediaworks, SRN Radio 1 (see below list for link).

A masterful deal mastered by Phillip Hong has CC being rebroadcast right after it's live EST show, which is 8 p.m. in SRN land, western Canada. It will run right after the station's own The All-New Music Hour.

"Mr. Hong was easy to deal with during negotiations," said Lionel Stevroid, who makes deals for the parent company that owns, operates and threatens to destroy CC. "Mr. Hong and his superiors are fine people and they know fine broadcasting and they are brave, courageous and bold--like the lyrics in the song from The Adventures of Robin Hood, an old British television show starring Richard Greene. Cotolo has agreed to provide some exclusive segments to Radio 1 for repeated play. In those segments, Cotolo will probably not mention The Adventures of Robin Hood, an old British television show starring Richard Greene. Although you can never tell."

We are happy for this addition to our growing list of affiliates. As Sam Cooke once sang, "...what a wonderful world this would be" if CC was on a hundred stations. But Mr. Cooke did not mean that song to be about CC. He would today, if he hadn't been violently shot and killed some years ago.

9 p.m. EST, Thursday

and 8 p.m. PST, Thursday

Goodbye weekend, hello rest of the time

Our thanks and appreciation to Leigh Silver, who made our Oct. 14 show a booming success. In fact, last we looked, it was still booming. Please check out Ms. Silver's work.

Also on that show, I told everyone to play a horse named Niadhas in the third race at Belmont Park today. Yes, the horse won and paid $18.40 on every $2 bet to win on him. You're welcome. And if you didn't play it, slam your head against the wallboard and say to yourself, "I'll listen to him next time, I swear!"

My dad used to say, "The weekends go by so fast." I now know what he meant because it already feels like the upcoming weekend is over. Still, two days are ahead of us and each one may be filled with the joy of a child's heart. If only we had that child's heart our lives would be filled with joy, too.

In any event, but especially this one, keep checking in for updates to this blog and the continuing consciousness of Cotolo Chronicles as it flows, goes and blows through the souls of men tried by these times.

Silver threads among the gold

Hey, more on Leigh Silver before you hear her tonight on CC. Peruse her at

And join us, starting at 9 p.m. EST. You Westerners can have dinner while you listen. You can talk to one another later, unless you are alone, in which case if you are talking to anyone you should seek help.

Help is on the way, by the by and by and large. So tune in. It is free.

Bittersweet guest joins the flow

This Thursday night, Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. it's another trip into the vestibule of virtual voices with Cotolo Chronicles.

This week's special guest is Leigh Silver, singer, model, entertainer. Live from the West Coast, Leigh will talk to us over the phone. Catch up on her by perusing and be ready for a spirited conversation. Certainly a bittersweet one.

What else is in store? As you know, the docket can only hold so much and then it collapses, especially when subjects and topics arise, which they have a tendency to do. So it is hard for you to be prepared to listen (other than having a beverage of choice ready) and it is difficult for us to promote what might happen. Things, after all, just happen and on CC the talk can take a tender turn from this to that, that to this and to the other thing.

The ZEN nature of our program proves nothing except that no other broadcast follows the flow as does CC. This is a good thing, a natural thing. The flow is what you think, what you feel and why you exist, so some say. We don't talk over your heads or to any individual group--just to you and you alone. We have no hidden agendas. We only want to get your attention and make you think.

It's one more reason why more people choose Cotolo Chronicles over all commercial Chronicles products. And doctors agree by a margin of three to one, with a five-point margin of error. So drop all your cares and woes, say bye bye to the blackbird and listen to the program that years from now will be called, "That show which put internet broadcasting on the cybermap."

9 p.m. EST, Thursday

Our Octoberfest continues

What a band, what a show, what a night!
What a month so far!
Our Oct. 7 program started with tech problems but a simple reboot kicked everything into place. Thanks for the large, worldwide crowd. Here are some links to places that reflect some of our topics of Oct. 7, just in case you want to look more deeply into them.

Lewis and Clark's 200-year anniversary is putting Native Americans on the protest warpath. Go to and read about the team's first American tour and how attracting the Indian crowd wasn't so simple.

Go to and be ready to laugh and honor a great entertainer.

The broadcasting world is changing -- .

Keep checking in here for news on next week's program. You can get a glimpse of an upcoming interview by going to . Check out Leigh.

Cotolo Chronicles can be heard every Thursday night at 9 p.m. EST on the internet

A great debate, staff and follow up

Our debate-night broadcast was a tremendous hit, if we do say so ourselves and we are saying so ourselves. Many thanks to the people who helped us with our unique hookup in Coral Gables, Florida. I mean, of course, Sam Sultry, Lousie Rainer, Mick Applestump, Brendon Califlour, Lee Moore, Gary Lessman, Leslie Wilder and John "Stump Foot" Grinaldo. Yes, it took that many fictional people to get our hookup going.
Our favorite moment was when President Bush said, "massed mixagges," meaning, of course, mixed messages.
The Chronicles poll taken only hours after the debate, indicated that 57 percent of the people listening thought Kerry "won" the thing. There were responses from 20 people saying Bush won the thing. Another 30 percent reported that they wished film maker John Waters was on the stage during the debate. Another 6 percent said they did not watch and another 5 percent wanted to know why this poll adds up to more than 100 percent, give or take a few points. The answer to that, of course, is that the margin of error is 20 to 30 points.
