This past summer, I took on a fill-in show at our local campus/community radio station. A traditional jazz show, but I decided to only ever say the station's call letters, frequency, and the word "jazz". Over and over and over again.

With an infrequent added word, like "flute" for the flute jazz special. Or abundant coughing during the "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" special during wildfire season.

You can decide whether it is an interesting linguistic experiment into the power of performance to create meaning through a limited set of syllabic options, or just a dumbass being a dumbass on the radio.
