Unfinished Business - Part IV

Unfinished Business - Part IV (Business Is Finished)

I couldn't wait to upload the remaining episodes... The need to wrap this up sooner than later was too great. I just posted 4 of the last 5 to the archive and am uploading the fifth as I type this.

Episode #1 was produced sometime in March or April of 2001, and it's the last to be added to the archive. So Some Assembly Required has been in syndication for just over a decade. I'd been doing the show live up to that point, in Minneapolis, and only started to pre-produce in 2001 so that I could send the show out to air on other radio stations.

It turned out to be a lot more work than I had anticipated, but by the time I realized what I'd signed myself up for there were more than five stations expecting new episodes every week. I took pride in that and so somehow found the time. Within a couple of years the show was being broadcast in dozens of different cities and my fate was sealed.

Thanks again to everyone for all the emails I've been getting since announcing the show's retirement. It actually means an awful lot. It's been really great to hear from folks who listened regularly and enjoyed the show. I'll miss it as well, of course!

Episode #1 is up next... enjoy.

Thanks for listening,
Jon Nelson
