#tbt The Z Morning Show ‘Boobar To Boobar’
Boobar for the win!
As the buzz kill of 2020 lingers on into 2021, The Eastern Maine High School Basketball tournament is yet another fun thing that has been postponed.
It's school vacation week, and normally today, people would be heading to the Cross Insurance Center, from all over the state to enjoy the hoop action and support their school and community. Of course we aren’t forgetting all of you who made the trek to the iconic Bangor Auditorium to see games pre-2014!
I want to say the year was 2007, but I could be wrong. One morning we made a morning show bit out of an impression I have been doing for years on the air. I didn't think much of it, we were just riffing, joking around and having a good time. Well, come to find out that after we replayed it a few times (the first of about a million and counting) that people really responded to it, and have been ever since.
Everywhere I go, Z listeners come up to me and say the now classic lines from it "Darlene Boobar over to Misty Bickford"..."Boobar for the win!" I have no idea why it has caught on the way it did. Honestly, the feedback has been about 99% positive, minus one complaint letter a few years back and for the record, the whole thing is done with a wink and smile.
In 2015, we even had T-shirts made!
