The mid-1990s was a time of transitory technology for radio and KVSC. Challenges were recorded on reel-to-reel tape and then dubbed onto carts (8 track style cartridges) for On-Air playback. While they didn’t know it this was the first year of the Goat Posse.
Since the Posse were complete noobs on the challenge line, there was little attention paid to archiving as they had not yet realized that “this Trivia thing” would become part of the fabric of their lives.
The Posse did have fun with the callers and on-air folk by providing providing a Kenny Loggins-Glen Frey hit parade primer. They also fielded a call from a person who was 11 years too early for the Trivia Idol contest but she did modify a Grease song… (More…)
- Dial T for Trivia Promo
The format of this promo inspired Captain F. to create “The Trivia Intro”.
Producers: Troy & Dave Lee
- Challenge: Dan Pardo Experiencing Technical Difficulties
This is a combo call as Dave Lee checks-in while making a food run to local businesses who donated food for the volunteers. Meanwhile, a member of Those Meddling Kids issues a quality challenge to the rest of the teams.
- Challenge: Foosball
The ubiquitous foosball table in the KVSC office was the site of many tournaments year-round. UTVS was always sending teams over to challenge KVSC dominance.
- Challenge: Footsteps/Lodely bu Como Se Dysook O dookie
This combo call is an unlikely paring of abstract challenge line calls. Every year there are team names that defy description and Lodely was 1995’s winner. The fascinating note about this combo is that they were recorded within minutes of each other.
- Challenge: George Millhouse Nixon Bush
The Three Drooling Geeks specialized in impromptu H.W. George Bush skits. Their interpretation of an HWGB alternate universe is worth listening to.
- Challenge: George Part 2
The Goat Posse recorded only two calls from “H.W. George Bush” but a few calls from previous years can be heard in 1997’s Retro Trivia Montage.
- Challenge: Neff’s Birthday Challenge
Before 9/11 shifted Trivia weekend to later in the month of February; Al Neff’s birthday always fell during Trivia. The Panties team salutes Al in a very Challenging way.
- GPO: Hour 15 Top Ten
Captain F. Produces his first Top Ten list in what would become a Goat Posse tradition. The subject of this top ten suggest that Captain F. is still learning what Trivia is all about as 1995 is his first year on the challenge line and 2nd year volunteering
- GPO: Hour 25 Top Ten
The Goat Posse was not the first to use the Top Ten format in Trivia productions. The final few moments of an Al Neff produced Top Ten can be heard in 1997’s Retro Trivia Montage. The hour the Top Ten is named for really has no significance. The Posse felt the more random the more profound the ideas behind the list.
- GPO: Trivia Challenge Man
We are not sure why Captain F. felt he needed to sing this challenge. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if it being his first year on the challenge line is an acceptable excuse.
