Summary:
K-REV Christian Radio does a “man on the street” interview with Bob and Marcia about prayer.


(K-REV Announcer Kyle is seated at an angled table, stage-left a with a microphone on the table. Kyle has large headphones covering his ears. Holding a K-REV microphone in her right hand, stage right is K-REV’s Interviewer Ann standing with Bob and Marcia.)


KYLE
You’re listening to the All-new Digital Family-friendly Christian Radio Network K-REV.
And today Ann is interviewing folks on the street about prayer. What K-REVelation do people have about prayer? Ann, are you ready to go?

ANN
We are ready! Good morning Kyle.

KYLE
God’s morning to you too!

ANN
Thank you.

KYLE
Whatcha got for our K-REV listeners today?

ANN
I’m on the street interviewing Bob and Marcia about prayer. Thanks Bob and Marcia for agreeing to go on the air with us.

MARCIA
Oh, tank you so much Ann fer askin’ us.

BOB
I don’t mind bein’ here, but we gotta hurry it up. I got work to do.

ANN
This won’t take long. Bob, do you pray?

BOB
Of course I pray—who wouldn’t pray? Da way dese guys drive aroun’ here.

ANN
Thanks Bob. Marcia, how about you—do you pray?

MARCIA
Oh yes, all-da-time. I pray fer Bob a lot of the time.

BOB
(mocking Marcia) I pray fer Bob a lot of the time, whaddya mean by that?

MARCIA
I just do pray, is all.

ANN
On to the next question! Marcia, when you pray, do you pray out loud? For example, if we were to pray right now, would you pray aloud, or more whisper to yourself?

MARCIA
Ohhhh, I always pray quietly, it’s the Christian way.

ANN
How about you, Bob? Do you pray out loud?

BOB
Unlike Marcia here, I talk with God out loud all the time, see… I see it dis way, if I talk out loud to Him, then I hearz it, an' I know He hearz it, too. A lot of the time I even walk around conversin’ wit Him.

MARCIA
Ohhhh Bob, that is wonderful.

ANN
Okay, this is really good. Marcia, what do you normally pray for when you pray?

MARCIA
I pray da Lord bless Bob and our entire family wit good health an’ protection, an’ for our finances, too.

ANN
Thanks Marcia. And you, Bob? What do you pray for?

BOB
I pray we can get dis interview done soon—hey, I’m just razzin’ ya, Ann. Seriously, though, I pray fer Joette our daughter all-da-time. She’s been through a lot in her young life.

MARCIA
Ohhhh Bob, that is wonderful.

BOB
(mocking Marcia) Ohhhh Bob, that is wonderful. Of course it’s wonderful—

ANN
Okay then, on to the next question! Marcia, if you met someone on the street who needed someone to pray for them, would you do it right then, or go home and pray about it?

MARCIA
I’d prob-ly write it down, take it home an’ pray.

ANN
And you, Bob? If you met someone on the street who needed someone to pray for them, would you do it right then, or—

BOB
I’d pray fer dem right dare. Lemme give you an example.

MARCIA
Bob, remember we’re on da radio dare?

BOB
Okay, before I was RUDELY interrupted: Ann, let’s say you’re da lady on the street who walks up to me and sez, (getting louder, and Bob gently lays one hand on Ann’s shoulder) “I don’t need no money or nuttin’ like dat, sir, but I sees you’re a man of faith. Could you pray fer me? I need a job to pay for my medical billz.” See, I’d be like the Lord an’ pray fer her right dare. (getting even louder) Like dis, “Father, in Your Name Jesus, I pray for Ann—lead her to where you want her to be an’ bless her wit a job. And Lord—”

OFFICER
(interrupts Bob) Excuse me, ma’am, is everything okay here? Is this man hurting you?

ANN
Officer, he’s not hurting me, he’s actually showing me how he’d pray for someone on the street, out loud.

OFFICER
I see, and you’re from a radio station?

ANN
Yes sir, from the Christian Radio Network, K-REV.

OFFICER
Okay then, carry on. We got complaints, so keep it down. (exits)

BOB
I got one ting to say about dat.

ANN
What’s that?

BOB
Dat was much ado about nuttin.

An interesting read showing some of the news we hear and read today ... much ado about nothing! LoL.

Funny! I like that Bob took the interviewer up on her request and began to show her something real and then got shushed.
