JOHNNY FRANKLIN, PRODUCER: Today is Monday the 31st day of December 2018. Thank you for turning to WORLD Radio to help start your day. Good morning. I’m Johnny Franklin.
CARL PEETZ, PRODUCER: And I’m Carl Peetz. See Johnny, I knew we could do it!
FRANKLIN: Yeah, it’s pretty easy after listening to Mary and Nick day after day! (laughs) Well, coming next on The World and Everything in It: let’s call it “scenes from the cutting room floor.”
PEETZ: You know, Mary and Nick are professionals! They’ve gone to classes for this and they even warm up before hand.
FRANKLIN: Unlike us. (chuckle)
(Mary) I gotta get repositioned here. OK. (Nick) Are you getting some air? (Mary) I gotta get air, and I gotta, I do better when one leg’s on the floor. [Gargling jeopardy theme] [You gotta do your vocal exercises… ]
PEETZ, FRANKLIN: [Gargling jeopardy theme]
EICHER: That’s entirely disgusting!
PEETZ: Oh, sorry Nick. We were just…
FRANKLIN: …just realizing we have a long way to go…
PEETZ: Yeah. And when we get there… hmm. How about some flubs?
FRANKLIN: Yeah, that’s a good idea!
PEETZ: We should be on the right track then, eh?
FRANKLIN: Yeah, for sure! But as we pretend to be Nick and Mary (and we definitely have a long way to go), please note that sometimes Nick and Mary pretend to be other folks as well.
[Bush, Cal, Warren, Grant, Southern folk]
PEETZ: And with that we thank you for allowing us a few minutes of fun. It is really an honor for us to work with all those in front of the mic.
FRANKLIN: I agree! And where would they be without us? For The World and Everything in It, I’m Johnny Franklin.
PEETZ: And I’m Carl Peetz. We’re the guys that stay up late so you can hear the program bright and early!
FRANKLIN: And I think we need some more sleep…
PEETZ: You’re probably right!
