Who dat? (11:00 pm)

Sometimes, I listen to the radio, and I wonder... who is the person behind that voice I hear?
I mean, who the hell do they think they are?

Well... If you've wondered that, you might want to mosey on over to the FBi site and check out the new presenter profiles. You can even read the demented ramblings of yours truly. Scary eh?
