It was an angry email from an irate listener that changed the way the show is presented. I was thinking the presentation was sounding a bit tired and needed a bit of a spruce up, and I thought it sounded like I was taking it all too seriously, then I got this email. I honestly dont know what I'd done to provoke it, but he certainly went to a lot of trouble. After reading the email I became aware that some people thought I was portraying myself as an expert, which I'm certainly not. So I changed the whole presentation of the show. Here's what the listener wrote:
When I read the email on the air, listeners joined in the fun, sending funny emails referring to it, and even some talented graphic artists creating images relating to talking dogs. You can see some of these contributions in the Listener area of the site.
After this email, I changed the presentation fo the show, so the announcer says: "Not a preacher, not an expert, just a fan, speaking from the heart. ... The talking dog himself ... Mike KEAR!" just for the fun of it.
(since then, the author of the irate email has written saying he likes what I've done with it, and he's a regular listener)
