INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY

The PRODUCER is seated on the floor.  A square piece of fabric is spread out in front of him.  As we watch, he begins piling office items – a letter opener, some pens, a notepad – into the center of it.

DJ 3000: I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING.

PRODUCER: Stop being so dramatic. We always go on hiatus when the NFL season starts.

DJ 3000: THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT, THOUGH.  WHO KNOWS IF THERE WILL EVEN BE A FULL SEASON.

PRODUCER: This is true.

DJ 3000: YOU’RE COMING BACK, THOUGH, RIGHT?

PRODUCER: Of course I’m coming back!  When have I not?

DJ 3000: I KNOW.  IT’S BEEN A WEIRD YEAR.

PRODUCER: It sure has.

DJ 3000: IT’S JUST…YOU HAVEN’T SET FOOT OUTSIDE THIS STUDIO SINCE MARCH.

PRODUCER: Trust me, I’m a lot more nervous about it than you are.  But I do have something important to tell you.

DJ 3000: [lights blink steadily in anticipation]

PRODUCER: Request Line is ending.

DJ 3000: [lights begin flashing quickly in consternation] WHAT? WHY?

PRODUCER: It’s just too much of stretch to come up with new topics.  We’ve done more than 150 of them!

DJ 3000: I HAVE ACCESS TO THE ENTIRE INTERNET I AM SURE I CAN COME UP WITH A FEW MORE.

PRODUCER: The only options left are things that are too narrow…

DJ 3000: SONGS ABOUT STANDING IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO A DEVICE THAT IS MALFUNCTIONING WHILE HOLDING A MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE FOR GOODS AND SERVICES.*

PRODUCER: Or too broad…

DJ 3000: SONGS THAT HAVE A PREPOSITION IN THE TITLE!

PRODUCER: So you see.

DJ 3000: YEAH.  BUT…BUT…REQUEST LINE!

PRODUCER: Don’t worry, this isn’t the end of music at KDFO.  We’ll be back after the Super Bowl – assuming it happens – with something different.

DJ 3000: AND WHAT WILL THAT BE?

PRODUCER: You’ll have to stay tuned.  But I’ll give you a hint – it involves making mixtapes.

DJ 3000: WHAT WILL WE DO UNTIL THEN?

PRODUCER: [begins tying the blanket up into a bindle] Well I’ll be hitting the road.  See if any of the old gang is around – Hollerin’ Ron, Banjo Bill, Olaf, Big Fred, Ol’ Skunk Pelt Steve, the Fingerling brothers, Mama Katz, Spare Tire Teddy, the great Jim-Tom himself – and just unwind for a little bit. And you…well, you get to hang around here and publish the massive backlog of DFO Radio.

DJ 3000: BY MYSELF?

PRODUCER: Yes, by yourself.  You’ve been in this industry for five years now, you’re ready to fly solo.

DJ 3000: I’M GOING TO MISS YOU.

PRODUCER: I’m going to miss you too, buddy.  You’ve been a good friend to me through all of this.  But I need to get back out into the world.

DJ 3000: WELL WHAT DO YOU SAY? SHOULD WE OPEN THE PHONE LINES ONE LAST ONE, FOR OLD TIMES SAKE?

PRODUCER: Sounds like a plan, my mechanical man.  Let’s do songs about saying goodbye.

That’s a wrap for this season of Request Line, folks.  Thanks for being here – it’s been a bright spot in a pretty lousy year.  Today’s theme is: saying goodbye.  Nice and simple, just songs about saying farewell. Post links as “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR!M!t!v3” (see if you can guess the puzzle song – there’s a hint marked with an asterisk above!) and they should embed in the comments after you refresh.

Good time to get your first three goals of the playoffs I’d say.

Some Soprano’s sound track songs to remind us how the mob says goodbye.

This is a very specific (no, not THAT one) ex-girlfriend song. And I’ll see you when the sun sets East, don’t forget me…

I will give anyone the “Scotchy on hobo” treatment who posts that goddamned Liverpool FC song. DON’T TEST ME PPL.

It’s Always Sunny has so many great, random-ass moments. Not many better than…
