BaD Radio Reports

BaD Radio Reports, originally crafted by Dan McDowell, is a segment dedicated to "an in depth look at something [BaD Radio] would not take an in depth look at otherwise."[1]

Background

BaD Radio Reports was started as a weekly segment on BaD Radio to fill the gap between the Super Bowl and the first game of the NFL season, opposite Homer Call of the Week which occurs during football season. It's first episode was heard on February 22, 2006 and has appeared since.

The fate of the bit was in the balance on July 12, 2006, with Bob and Dan wondering aloud whether to keep it going. The enormous success of Donovan's first BaD Radio Reports (DontDateHimGirl.com) kept the new tradition alive.[1]

Open

The original open by was read by Tom Gribble as 1920s Reporter Guy.

"Dateline Dallas, the bees knees of the little Ticket, Bob and Dan, bring you BaD Radio Reports, a ducky weekly bull session where we beat our gums about all things in the world worth beating our gums about. Now your hosts, a couple of nifty joes who we think are the cat's pajamas... Bob Sturm and Dan McDowell!" [2]

This open was used from February to June 2006, and again on August 22, 2006.[3]

On April 7, 2007, a new open was heard:

"It's time once again for BaD Radio Reports, spanning the globe to bring you everything you need to know to survive in our complex and every changing world. Ignore it, and you could die. And now, your BaD Radio Reports correspondents, Bob Sturm, Dan McDowell, and Donovan Lewis."[4]

This open was used until 2014. After the departure of Donny Doo, this open was modified in 2016 by Mino by beeping out "Donovan Lewis". Since then, the open hasn't been recreated, and drops for guest correspondents have been occasionally used ("My Main Man Jake"on July 21, 2016[5], "TC and the Ticket Ferrett" on August 18, 2016[6], and "Ticket Ferrett" on August 25, 2016). Dan guaranteed the open would be freshened up in 2016, even if it "takes until New Years Eve."[7] However, 2016 sadly came and went without a new open.
