* GhostExtras: Prevalent in the first two seasons, before being largely reduced and eventually abandoned. The audio commentaries revealed creator Paul Simms's thoughts on the extras: While they ''did'' give the feeling of a bustling city radio station, he found the extras to be too distracting and wanted to focus solely on the main cast members.

* DownerEnding: Pretty much. [[spoiler: Dave refuses to join Lisa, Beth, Joe, Max, and Jimmy in New Hampsire, leaving Dave all alone in the WNYX studio... or so he thought. Turns out Matthew was hiding under his desk and surprised him. So while Dave isn't alone, he's stuck with Matthew as his assistant, a guy who can't do much of anything except play computer solitaire. The OhCrap look on Dave's face pretty much says it all.]]

** WordOfGod states that if the show had been renewed, [[spoiler:the entire cast would have been transplanted to the new station in New Hampshire, so if you accept that as canon, you could reason that Dave and Matthew did end up joining the others after all.

* ExactWords: In one Christmas episode, Matthew receives a set of recordings of the old ''Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly'' radio show, and later gets pissed when he thinks everyone else got better gifts. But then it turned out Jimmy ''literally'' gave him ''Fibber [=McGee=] and Molly'', as in, he gave Matthew the rights to the series.
