As we close in on the third anniversary of the debut of The Lowdown radio show, here is the pilot episode that somehow got us on air. Amazingly, despite us dragging two topics out for about 27 minutes, we somehow were described as humourous and likeable with excellent production value . (Ironically, two-and-a-half years later, someone else had the exact opposite opinion of us which was also the exact opposite opinion of most feedback we get. We were also told to up scripting in our original feedback which we never did but somehow our scripted-sounding lack of scripting somehow got us dumped.) Anyway, on this episode, the boys give a quick overview of what the show is all about before diving into a discussion about whether lectures should be recorded and posted online for students. Talk moves on to the now infamous Vanessa Hudgens nude self portraits (and Steve leads in by asking for the lowdown in the first and only time in show history) and the 2007-08 TV season. After the commercial break (we had those in the pilot too), the boys preview the 2007 NFL season and talk about the place of fighting in hockey. And the show wraps with Steve doing the outro on his laptop’s built-in microphone because he forgot to do it at the studio. If you’re a longtime fan of The Lowdown, this is a must listen classic edition of the show.
