Interviewed by Steve Harmon
Harmon: Jim Mantel .. WGAR CLEVELAND .. voted Most Unique Radio Personality .. and the guy most Bitkickers <channel 3> love to see sit next to Harmon at BFD for the loud, Italian style shouting. On air he is a funny guy with a warm heart .. ok I made that up. It's the mistake by the lakes .. Jim Mantel in the spotlight:
Mantel: Thanks Harmon and bite me!
Harmon: Pet Peeve:
Mantel: people who call it a "hot water heater." You don't heat HOT WATER...it's already HOT
Harmon: Most annoying person:
Mantel: ME, when I start ranting about hot water heaters!
Harmon: If I were good enough to play professional sports I’d play:
Harmon: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had:
Mantel: Machinist.. spent more time in the bathroom avoiding work than actually working
Harmon: If I could be anyone other than myself I’d be:
Mantel: My boss, so I could give Mantel a raise! (or who ever is sleeping with J-lo next)
Harmon: Give us a list of your favorite cds of all time:
(not in any order)
Harmon: Where does most of your show content inspiration come from?
Harmon: My worst habit is:
Mantel: biting my nails
Harmon: What show on Bitboard is mostly to "break big" in the next year or two?
Mantel: I think it's time for Chad Austin to get the hell out of Pougkipsie (or however you spell it) His stuff in consistently better than a town no one can spell, deserves!
Harmon: Who on your show is on your last nerve?
Mantel: Thanks to consolidation it's just me and a newsperson.. flip a coin
Harmon: We would be surprised to know you.....what?
Mantel: I am a sucker for a good telemarketer
Harmon: Is there any pleasing a PD, or are they doomed to always think all breaks all morning long could always be better?
Mantel: You CAN please a PD.. don't do that bit, just play another song..they'll be happy, your ratings will suck and they will fire you...making them even HAPPIER
Harmon: Favorite Interview?
Mantel: Dave Barry
Harmon: Interview the rest of us on bitboard should avoid?
Mantel: National Audit Defense Network.. I almost got on a plane to go find that Jonas guy and beat the crap out of him... NEVER have those people on.. it's a scam (also never bet on the little league world series with a station that is less than 100 miles from Cuba!)
Harmon: are you happy?
Mantel: Yes, I am a lucky guy.. great wife and kids and friends.. oh, and then there's you ya bastard
<ahhhhh my man Mantel harmon>
