    from the people on the street (that Ira is interviewing) if it is ok with them to go on the air with him on Sirius/XM Satellite radio ?

    NY is a two-party state. Both parties must consent for a call to be recorded.

    Also, since Sirius is broadcast nationally, getting permission adheres to all state laws.

    It just sounded awkward as I never noticed Sal or Richard ask that to people on the street, but maybe that is because their interviews are pre-recorded :dontknow:

    Could be.

    There's still no reason not to have a producer along with Ira who gets approval ahead of time. It's the same fucking bit anyway...asking Midwestern touristas about gay marriage and abortions. The Ira-on-the-street bit just doesn't work IMO.

    It seems like the bit is set up to humiliate Ira, not so much the people he interviews,,,, but I only heard it a few times so I dunno

    The particular bit is only a couple months old. Until this week, Ira would be in front of a Fox News BBQ and Jay'd ask some conservative Midwesterner about gay marriage or abortion. He'd be rude and the Midwesterners would hang up (Southerners and Midwesterners are horrid, evil, racist woman haters!!!)

    Personally, I'd much rather hear Ira in the studio. He's the butt of the joke either way, but it's funnier when he's flubbing a line.

    Yeah! I remember when I first heard Ira on the show I hated him and would clench my fist when he interrupted then magically I listened one morning and I just started liking him :dontknow:

    no, only one party needs to know.

    he does it because it is being broadcast and they can deny broadcast rights.

    I hated him at first too. I thought he was a character like Ned. But he grew on me when I realized that he was the real deal.

    I'm actually kind of surprised. Why don't Richard and Sal stick to NY calls? It makes no sense that they'd call 2-party states when they can stick to the poor blacks of NYC and LI and the poor whites of upstate.

    What station is that Tradio show, that Sal and Richard call, on? Is it even a real show? Most phony phone calls are just that: phony.

    Tradio is all over the US. Mostly small, local markets. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tradio

    i love ira, but those call-ins from the street are usually a bust.

    he's not situationally aware enough to deal with the audience, the cell phone and the people on the street.


    it would work if the did a pre-produced bit with someone coming along to help him.
