Been listening to the show for a little under a year and think it's absolutely one of the funniest things ever.  Thanks also for introducing me to Big Dipper, the anthology is in constant rotation! - Danny (Los Angeles)

Hey, guys! I'm Raj (from Bristow, VA). Yeah, I've called TBS a handful o' times. Listened to the show on-n-off for past four years, blog for 7SD. Read through this forum, seems like a strong social nerve that I'd like to stop by.

Big shout-outs to Jason Grote and David from Virginia, FOTs who've I've met face-to-face, FB buddy Miami Laurie, and Petey who I've corresponded via mail. and Big "nice to meet-ya's" to evreyFOT else.

And a tip-o-the-hat to Tom. The shows are going great. Please don't stop.

Howdy, Raj!  Great to see you here.
Oh, good heavens. I didnít realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the OíConnor family.

Hi, folks. I'm Shawn from Utah and I've gone from barely TBS-familiar to mildly obsessed in just a few weeks. I drive a bookmobile in two rural counties and have really been enjoying the Best Show podcast and tons of the Vault material as I cruise around, checking out books. Tom helps me to remember that there's a beautiful absurd world beyond the confines of the Zion Curtain (that's what non-Mormons call the UT state line.)

I probably won't be calling the show anytime soon (library work responsibilities, of course) but I'll continue to dig deeper and deeper into its online presence. I used to host a couple of community radio shows in Colorado a few years ago and I can definitely appreciate the difficulty and beauty of the work that Tom and Jon deliver in their three hours of on-air time each week. So, um...good guys win! Bad guys die!
You can't make fun of the new guy. Maybe the Bad Brains can get away with it, I don't know.

Hi, everybody!  My name's Joe, I live in Pennsylvania and I've been listening for about a year.  I'm a huge Mountain Goats fan, which is how I became aware of Jon Wurster and then the Best Show.  I've never called in and probably won't any time soon, but I may start posting here occasionally.

New FOT, been listening for about 8 months I've been watching the chat and I'm finally jumping into the forum.  You guys are awesome and make a great show even more enjoyable.    Thanks to Tom and all of the FOT for bringing so much joy to my life.

Hello forum and indeed Tom. Been listening to the podcast for over a year now. Being a huge music fan I was always well aware of WFMU even in Bonnie Scotland. It wasn't until I got an ipod and searched for decent comedy shows that I stumbled apon this. It's now the thing I look forward to the most. I remember discovering Zach Galifianakis around the same time as Scharpling and Wurster... that was a great time  ;D

I've been listening for about a year.  The first episode i listened to was last year's Best Of, and that hooked me.  I especially loved all the overly dramatic threats on Tom's life.  Marky Ramone and Philly Boy Roy are faves, too.  I think i found the show via The Sound of Young America, from that episode where Jesse interviewed Seven Second Delay.  I listen via podcast, since i live in NC and don't have the internet at home (i illicitly download it from work).

Hello.  New to the forum. I've been listening to The Best Show for over a year, tried to get my co-workers to listen to the show, but then I was laid off.  By the way, my name's Joe and I'm in SF.

I just started listening to the show because of the Zach Galifianakis interview, and Tom kept mentioning the forum so I thought I'd go ahead and register.
