No Dumb Questions - just a dumb Fr Jim Chern

Hey Catholic Guy Fans -
Dustin asked me to share a bit about yesterday's visit to The Catholic Guy Show. It's always a lot of fun to see Lino and Lou... there use to be other people there too, I forget there names...

Just kidding. It was great being on the show when Maureen and Tom where there and I was wondering what it would be like without Maureen now. She usually pre-interviewed me before a show. That basically meant that she would call me in the morning to give me a couple show topic ideas. Now that didn't mean we would definitely talk about those things or that we couldn't get thrown wildly off topic. But it at least gave me a couple things to mentally prepare for as I was driving into the City.

So it was a bit nerve wracking going in without any idea about what we would talk about. Lino announced "No Dumb Questions" and I got a bit more worried. Because I can be a bit of a perfectionist, worry about making sure I give the right answers to things. But I was a bit at ease knowing that Lino's not only a great radio host - he also KNOWS his theology and can easily pick up if I'm lost...

My favorite part was driving home and my best priest friend (who is also a campus minsiter) called to tell me he listened and heard the part I talked about the Catholic Dating Game debacle (where Maureen was suppose to set up and execute a "dating game" set up for single women who might want to date Lino). Producer Maureen had called me because "things got crazy" and she needed some possible dates for Lino. I thought it was funny that she would think that:
1 - I would know eligible bachelorettes
2 - they wouldn't be offended by the premise of the question (you don't have plans on Valentines Day)
3 - and would want to try there luck at a date with Lino.

The only possibility was the woman who's a supervisor of mine and I shared that on air that I couldn't imagine how I'd even approach that conversation. My priest friend said "I love how you admitted to considering trying to 'pimp' out our boss..." OUCH - hadn't thought of it like that!

At any rate - the whole visit was great and I'm VERY appreciative that people found our answers helpful. I left the studio thinking we had done some very good work - glad that you guys agree.

Keep Well and God Bless You!

  1. Thank you Father Chern. It's good to hear what it's like from the "inside."

    And the whole bit with Maureen asking you for i nearly fell out of my chair laughing at the thought of that.

    She could have looked on Lino's Myspace friend list for available women though. Maybe next time!
