The man behind Huron City Radio, ‘Fake radio station. Real funny’ has more projects coming
In some ways, fictional radio host Tom Bobbajobski is like all of us. Broadcasting from a boat in the middle of nowhere, shouting into the void, hoping someone’s listening.
But not really, not if you don’t want to take it that seriously, said fake radio station “Huron City Radio” creator Daniel Williams.
For the past two months Williams, a St. Clair resident, has been consumed by the show, which is “broadcast” by Bobbajobski on a boat in the middle of Lake Huron by the “kitten state.” The show’s tagline sums it up pretty well: “Fake radio station. Real funny.”
The show includes a drama portion, including the supernatural tale “Raccoon Man”; weather with a woman at the bottom of the lake who, depending on the episode, is half salmon, half soccer mom; call-ins from people trying to sell cursed dolls and individual socks; an advertisement for roadkill fashion and much, much more.
