Gary Michael Shannon’s career in radio has been one for the ages – a rags to slightly-nicer-rags story that, frankly, should be made into a TV show on a cable network or something. Raised in the wild by a family of hyper-intelligent armadillos in Beaumont, Texas, Gary Shannon learned from an early age that if you’re not quick-witted, you might get hit by an 18-wheeler. He still occasionally rolls himself into a ball to escape predators, angry program directors or awkward situations
