While we all know that some or all of the calls now are from the archives, I've noticed a few other show components which suggest that C&C must be continuing in some fashion. First of all, at the end of the show when they announce that listeners can download a podcast, they give the number of the podcast, which yesterday was identified as #1243. Maybe they spent a couple hours recording three years worth of podcast numbers to splice in?
Also, in the past month or so I don't recall hearing a rerun show opener segment - correct me if I'm wrong. This week for example, Tommy's first comment about problems with their own cars seemed fresh. Then again, immediately following that - comments about sports - sounded familar to me.
And this week's puzzler was unfamiliar to me although the previous one about the sign they had painted on their garage was almost certainly a rerun - I know I remember a puzzler about that sign, but don't remember it completely. But are the the puzzler winners also repeated from the the first time that puzzler ran, or are they announcing a new winner second time around?
Another part that seems like it's freshly recorded is the listing of underwriters at the beginning. There are probably other examples. So I'm thinking that they may be planning to come in to the studio now and then and record some of that stuff to be used for weeks into the future.
