Universal Foolishness publishes original Think Tank studies as short-form podcasts. Dump you old Think Tank and wade into the guilt-free waters of Galveston’s Bait Camp Think Tank. The salty scholars, led by Senior Fellow Uncle Otis, serve up live bait with a side of answers, to finish off political correctness for a grateful nation. Think of it like an AOL Weekend for the Apple crowd. If you’re going to be looking for a Welcome Kit in the mail after listening, this may not be for you.
Thanks for letting us into your home today; that almost never happens. Slower listeners keep right>>>>
American humorist Pat Fant (aka Uncle Otis) is a widely-ignored Southern intellectual who writes about the cultural collisions of our time. Inspired by Andy Rooney, Will Rogers, Roy Rogers and James Joyce, he is a 2011 inductee into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame, capping more than three decades as Mastermind and Commander of some of America’s best-known, major-market rock radio stations. Pat jumped way out front of brand-built digital media when he co-founded Houston-based RFC Media in 2009, now the leading supplier of private-label radio channels for brands and events. Fant, who also created the KISS Kasket for Gene Simmons (R.I.P. Dimebag) holds two U.S. Process Patents and has become an internationally ignored investor.
Fant’s Uncle Otis first gained notoriety as host of the acclaimed Christmas radio series Balls in the Tree. His indelicate world view may have been shaped while serving as Bait Shop Attendant on Galveston Island, where his Bait-Coin, although a failure, is still generally regarded as the first crypto-currency. Uncle Otis can still ride a bike without holding on to the handlebars. Can you? His favorite appetizer is ice. Today, Uncle Otis maintains a busy schedule hosting impromptu neighborhood scrapbooking meetings and chronicling the cultural displacement within the New America.
