RUSH: Okay. Back to the phones we go, as promised. This is Justin in Menifee, California. Great to have you with us, Justin. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How you doing?
RUSH: Very well, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: You know, I’ve been listening to you for about 25 years, and I started when I was a teenager, and I remember you doing an outro a long time ago to your program, and it used to have James Earl Jones on it, and I just always wondered what happened to that.
RUSH: Yeah, that was James Earl Jones (doing impression), “This, you’re listening to the EIB Network.”
And he wouldn’t do it. He wouldn’t do it for a while. Finally Johnny Donovan, as director of compression, convinced him to do it. He didn’t know what it was, so he finally did it, and then a couple years later or I forget how it was a significant time after that, Justin, he found out about it and made us stop using it. He rescinded permission.
CALLER: Oh, I see. Okay.
RUSH: Yeah. Did you think that we purposely broomed James Earl Jones from the EIB Network?
CALLER: Oh, no, no. I figured it was something like that, but, like, Chrissie Hynde, who I guess —
RUSH: Well, Chrissie was okay. Chrissie turned out to be the savior of our theme song.
