Judge Parker, Day 6: Dahlia After Dark

Dahlia After Dark is a call-in talk/music dedication nightly radio program currently syndicated to almost 200 stations across the United States as well as to listeners in the Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station (most of whom request beach songs and generally talk about wanting to bludgeon every other scientist on their team, often with a penguin).

Hosted by the mononymously-named Dahlia (formerly Alice Blotts), the program is broadcast from a home studio in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where it began as a pirate radio program in 1992 under the title The Screaming Trees Mega-Mix Hour. But due to a growing and avid listener base as well as a time slot (midnight to 5 am) best suited for the despondent, lovelorn, and people taking a break from scrawling manifestos in composition notebooks, the show quickly evolved into its present incarnation of chatting people up, talking people down, and picking just the right song to lift spirits, soothe jangled nerves, and cut off anguished screams.

In addition to being a longtime radio host, Dahlia has authored several bestselling self-help/relationship books, including Dahlia Is Listening, Dahlia Hears What You’re Saying, Dahlia Would Like to Say Something, Dahlia Needs You to Stop Talking for Just One Damn Second, and Dahlia Has Heard Enough. She also pens a series of self-published ebooks as “Evagelinia Delacroix” that fall under the literary genre “Vampire/Dinosaur/Tentacle Romance.”

Dahlia After Dark also features a Saturday night spinoff radio program called “Ladies Night” with a listener demographic of almost 100% men, all hoping the one called “Terri” calls back.

      Oh, no, no, no. (Wink. Wink wink. Wink wink wink wink wink wink eye spasm.)

    The Screaming Trees Mega-Mix Hour was the best.
