It seems everyone who was awake – not only in LA but everywhere – watched, called, or dropped in to WOW’s makeshift storefront studio for the James St James-hosted lively Ring My Bell 24-hour marathon last weekend. One of those was Lina Lecaro, LA Weekly‘s “Nightranger” columnist, who not only dropped in but also manned the phone for a bit while James used the little boys’ room.
Nightranger even got five minutes of fame, taking calls from kids all across the country. We chatted up a gal from Idaho who told us about her town’s Drag Queen Bingo nights (awesome!) and shared observations on the comical contrasts of the scene around us. (Tourists, bridge ’n’ tunnel clubbers and random riff-raff from the boulevard continually peeked in the storefront windows throughout the show, obviously wondering what the hell was goin’ on.)
