British Invasion, State Representative Joanne Favors + More – April 25 FBHW Show Recap
We participated in a charity dodgeball tournament on Friday night to benefit A-T. We had a great time, despite it going on FOREVER. We actually placed third! Listener Heinz was there and was chatting up Steve’s mom, who was in town for a visit. NBC’s The Paul Reiser Show didn’t do so well and was canceled after just two episodes. It was basically Curb Your Enthusiasm on NBC, except not funny.
The NHL playoffs were pretty crazy this weekend. A number 8 seed is hanging in there with a 1 seed. This is good for the NHL since no one watches regular season hockey, as compared to other sports. Producer Joe is back from Colorado Springs where he was visiting our affiliate 107.9 KDZA. He’s in town for about 24 hours and then he and Steve leave for London later tonight! Click on the link in the Slideshow for the British Invasion to follow their adventure! A cold case going back to 2003 was solved recently in the craziest way. A guy was arrested for a completely different crime, but cops noticed that he had the crime scene from the cold case tattooed on his chest! Antoine Dodson, the famous internet star known as the Bed Intruder guy, was arrested over the weekend. You probably won’t be surprised when you hear what the charges were. See that in the Cool Links section.
During the break, we watched a video online that talked about the origin of Peeps. We were confused, because in the video, it said that it originally took 30 hours to make just one Peep! That seemed insane and we didn’t believe it. We talked for a bit about how awful those stupid things are. Producer Joe and Steve are leaving this afternoon for the British Invasion! We talked about how they will definitely be stopped by the TSA because of the items that will be in their bags. Steve is travelling with no less than 4 Flip cams and Joe is bringing along his big dil for D-mic! While talking about their trip, we also went over a breakdown of some of the costs associated with the wedding. Taxpayers are sure paying a hefty price for it!
While in Colorado Springs visiting our affiliate 107.9 KDZA, Producer Joe took a trip to one of the many pot dispensaries in the area. He told us how the interactions with the locals went and we were shocked because that’s a life that none of us know at all. During the FBHW Report, we played the audio of the greatest NASCAR pre-race prayer ever and also talked about Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall being stabbed. We saw a video of TN State Representative Joanne Favors speaking on the floor of the state Senate about how she was terrified of dogs and didn’t think they should be allowed in the legislative plaza. We got her on the phone this morning to explain her point of view, which definitely clarified her statement.
We talked more about the start of the British Invasion later in the show. We’re worried, but hopeful, that this will be as successful as the Lindsay Lohan stunt. The plan is to get some great international coverage! The Westboro Baptist Church rolled in to town recently for one of their protests at a soldier’s funeral. A few days before the protest was to take place, one of their members was running their mouth at a gas station and got his ass kicked! Needless to say, they left town with their tail between their legs. We closed the show by talking about a survey by AAA that said that ________ was up 18%. We decided to get listeners on the phone to guess what the blank was in our hackiest morning zoo show impressions. Talk to you on Tuesday!
