On the bright side I could’ve been arrested.

Let me KNow if it is to risque

i will have to check on the radio station's policy about drug references. I know that in the past we ran into some issues with it, but that was also when we were on the air at noon, rather than at 9-11.

The larger issue is fluidity of the piece. Reading it I found it confusing (in part because of the format you used, which is not the correct format, and because of some of the grammar issues in the script).
Characters just pop up and then are gone. Remember: you are writing for the radio. All you have are vocal cues to let the audience know what is happening. I don't think there are enough here to make it clear as to what is happening and who the characters are. In a way, this script reminds me a bit of the Gazebo script. Without any type of clear narration of what is occurring, it is difficult to follow. You might think of providing some framework for the script.
