A Little Ragged Today

Huh, so Marty actually works at a real radio station again. Also, he apparently shows up hungover at that same station on a regular enough basis that his colleagues are fairly comfortable making casual conversation about it.

What a letdown.



  1. Could I get a clarification from one of the veterans? This is WDIG, correct? “The Smooth Touch Magic 95 in Steubenville, OH”?

    It’s very admirable that World Witness For Christ Ministries, Inc. employs an obvious drunk. Perhaps an HR intervention is in the offing?

  2. Marty, like Joe Namath, likes his women blond and his Johnnie Walker Red. What’s the deal with his partner’s claw-hammer thumb in panel two?

  3. panel 2—she says “Marty your eyes look terrible” Marty answers “you should see them from the inside”….

  4. It appears that this is still WDIG, g2design.

    As I recall, there was another radio station in Milford, WMFD or something like that, and Moon called games for them up until 1999 or 2000 when he was fired. WDIG (named for their slimy owner, Mr. Digiovanni) picked up Moon as he fit their “edgy” image. For a season of two both stations broadcast Milford games until WMFD fired Paul Strange. Marty then got strange hired on at WDIG, where they co-called games through the 2004 football season before Paul was sent to the cornfield.

    Maybe the mystery woman is the “big one” that Marty let get away. Peaches McClure? Helen Hix?
    Or maybe Marty just turned down an internship with Jim Rome…

  5. “Looking a little ragged today, Marty. It must be a Monday.

    Or a Tuesday. Or a Wednesday. Or a Thursday. Or a Friday.”

  6. Can’t stop looking at the hands: Marty’s colleague’s dainty paw in front of her WDIG demitasse cup turns into the claw hammer, then Marty’s giant freak paw with each finger long enough to reach from eyeball to tip of chin.

    My hair has never been long enough to cover my ears, even when it started growing out of them. Is it normal to wear headphones over long hair like she is?

  7. I have updated the post to include it in the ‘Freak Hands’ category.
