A drop is a short sound clip played over the air by the show’s board op/technical director. A drop will generally have some relation to whatever is being discussed by the hosts at the time. For example, if a hosts asks a question to the other hosts, you may hear Kobe Bryant chime in stating “I wish we knew,” which was a response given during an interview with The Ticket some time ago when Kobe was asked who killed Martin Luther King (it was James Earl Ray). Although drops were used on The Ticket prior to the ascendancy of Grubes, Rhynes himself has stated that Shoopie revolutionized their use.
