WHAT TIME IS IT?...Coverage of Glenn on BreeFM

Glenn, live on BreeFM @11pm EST, Wednesday.

This article was written live during the show. As such it may contain significant factual errors. Over time it is hoped that these will be corrected.

If you have to pick a food not to eat before you go on the air: Panda Express. However, that is what Glenn did!

Mari will be back in the next week or so.

Sarah and Glenn have been playing phone tag.

Random Idea

A team to deal with Glenn's flustrations and anger. A realty show. You get a team deployed that help you deal with things. These are people who can get things done. If we go TLC and discovery it will go one direction: it could be a motivational show to help you reach your goals. Now for Comedy Central/MTV: the team would help you extract revenge or deal with something that is bugging you. For example take the girls ex-boyfriend and set up on charges that will send him to jail (as a joke that will be revealed at the end of the show). We would all learn something at the end. This has not quite been done. It would take a team of skilled con artists.

Silverblue asked about the "Cowboy Radio Drama". Glenn said he would touch base with Mike and if he is ready to go with it, give him the outline.

Glenn said that there is so much going on he needs to hire a CEO of Glenn Co. (or should it be GlennCorp) to take Glenn's ideas and just make them happen with a crack team. Glenn has some things going on that he cannot talk about because of an NDA.

Glenn asked if anyone had a "pitch challenge". For example "we need to pitch xyz for an online show to be underwritten by....." Glenn has been doing pitches lately and he has had to come up with things that could integrate with RedEarth88 and other stuff. He enjoys coming up with things for fun and wanted people to throw out a challenge for him. For example with the new 90210 there will be a character that posts on YouTube and hence there will be cross media synergy. How do you turn ideas into gold?

When Glenn came back from an extended music break the tone of the show had changed significantly. Glenn talked about dealing with news about a friend he received during the music break the he was trying to deal with.

"The show must go on", so Glenn decided to focus the rest of the show on music.

Glenn talked about the Bette Midler song "Wind Between My Wings".

Glenn said it is a terrible song. If a friend tells you that you are the "Wind Between My Wings" it is not exactly a complement. It is like a backhanded insult. Glenn then played the song in segents with a runnning commentary.

"Wind Beneath My Wings"

http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/bettemidler/windbeneathmywings.html

It starts out uplifting. Clearly Bette Midler has soul.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face
.

It is like saying, I know its hard their in my shadow and you never have the sunlight on you.

You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.


So, further you are content to let me shine? What kind of "bs" is that? It must have been so hard to not be as awesome as I am but yet you take it. If you play this at a funeral it is like an "f u" to the dead.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.


It sounds like you were doing ok, but I am the one with all the glory.

A beautiful face without a name for so long.


You are the beautiful chick that guys like to hook up with but they don't even bother to get your name.

A beautiful smile to hide the pain
.

How presumptious was that?

It is like telling this sob story about Bette Midlers best friend who probably had real problems......perhaps she is an alcoholic?....she has a beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?


That is just passive agressive mockery. I know you are drinking yourself to an early grave as you find a way to fight back the constant pain you are in and smile

I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.


This is what you say to someone in lieu of giving them a raise at work. It is some condescending "bs".

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.


Say that next time you get confronted by a girlfriend/boyfriend. See if you don't get stabbed. That is not something you say to your best friend. Glenn thanks people all the time. How would it be if he said it like this?

I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.


I know the truth. It does not mean i am going to tell anyone else. To the rest of the world I am still the one with all the glory.

I would be nothing without you.


That is what she is trying to turn the truth into.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.


And again, she mocks her with the chorus.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.


She keeps repeating her cruel taunts.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.


This is the most mocking part. Those drugs keep you high as a kite.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.


Glenn gave a detailed commentary on the lyrics of the song. A guy would not put this much thought into a passive agressive song.

The show wrapped up early because of the news Glenn received during the show.

Here is the archive of of stories from LG15 TODAY concerning Glenn's radio show on BreeFM.

  3. Ok, I think most of the details are now there. As explained in the text the show was quite a bit shorter than usual.

  4. Glenn's interpretation of "Wind Beneath My Wings" is a little nuts. Yes, the song is a bit corny, but it's a song about giving recognition and gratitude to someone for their support, strength, and inspiration. There's nothing demeaning about that.

    It is a very common experience to feel you are getting most of the credit and laurels for some accomplishment, knowing that it would not have been possible without the aid of others who go unrecognized.

    I imagine Bette Midler herself had this experience, getting huge fame and attention, while her loved ones supported her behind the scenes.

    The song is not saying "I was better than you." It is saying "I appreciate what you did for me, even if others did not see it."
