The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show

The show (no music, just entertainment) is hosted by cast including Gregg “Free Beer” Daniels, Chris “Hot Wings” Michaels, Eric Zane, Producer Joe and Steve. http://www.freebeerandhotwings.com/

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FREE BEER & HOT WINGS SHOW. The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show began as an afternoon show in Omaha, Nebr., at non-commercial radio station KIWR in March 1997. The show was comprised of two former Central Michigan University roommates who eventually moved to mornings several months later. They remained there until summer 2000, when they moved to WBON in Knoxville, Tenn. It was there that they met the show’s eventual third member and other CMU grad, Eric Zane, who at the time was their direct competitor at WIMZ. When Zane was fired, he immediately drove across town and joined “The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show.” In June 2002, the show moved to New Jersey, where it was simulcast on WTHK in Trenton, N.J., and WCHR on The Jersey Shore. “The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show” began full syndication in 2004 with the addition of 97.9 WGRD in Grand Rapids, and is now heard on radio stations in 15 states

WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM? Instead of calling the show “The Gregg & Chris Show,” which by all estimations would have been the most boring sounding radio show in the world, the decision was made to call it “The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show,” which seemed far more attention grabbing. It was admittedly nothing more than a cheap ploy to get people to listen under the false pretense that they may actually have a chance to win beer and/or hot wings. However, it was not intended that those two things would become permanently synonymous and attached to Gregg and Chris as nicknames, but that’s what happened and now they have to live with the consequences of their B.S. forever. Also, the reason Zane wasn’t given a food name is that, when he joined the show, he was already a well-known personality and, frankly, another food name would have just been an overkill of stupidity.

Some Idiots Light off Mortar Shell in Closed Garage [NSFW Video]

Ah, the Fourth of July. It's everything that is America - hot dogs, apple pie, swimmin' holes, and lighting off mortar shells in your closed garage with your drunk buddies.

No better way to celebrate our great country, right?!

NASCAR Driver Austin Dillon Walks Away From Horrifying Crash [Video]

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Coke Zero 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway early this morning.

Right after Earnhardt's victory, driver Austin Dillon had a horrible accident where his car got launched from the inside of the track over two lanes of cars, hit the catch fence upside down, landed back on the track on its roof, and was hit by Brad Keselowski. The car was nearly torn in half, and its engine was ripped from under the hood. A section of the fence was torn down and debris went into the grandstands.

This Guys asks People why we Celebrate the 4th of July and They Don’t Know [Video]

A guy named Mark Dice (who describes himself as "an expert on secret societies, conspiracies, and government cover-ups") runs a YouTube channel where he goes out on the street and asks easy questions to show how ignorant people are. He went to a beach in San Diego for the Fourth of July and asked people why we celebrate it, and some of the answers he received were pretty terrible.

Producer Joe’s Photo Trap Challenge [NSFW Video]

Yesterday after the show, Free Beer was showing some photos of the twins to a coworker, when it popped into his head that the coworker would probably stand there as long as he wanted them to, based on social norms.

And from that, a new Producer Joe stunt was born!

Colin Cowherd’s Interview With Jim Harbaugh Gets Pretty Awkward [Video]

Yesterday, ESPN's Colin Cowherd had Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh on his program. Harbaugh is pretty notorious for being a serious football guy, so even a hint of a jokey or happy demeanor from Cowherd was probably going to throw him off...and boy did it!

Emilia Clarke From ‘Game of Thrones’ Nails the Valley Girl Accent [Video]

English actress Emilia Clarke, best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO series Game of Thrones, was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the other night and talked about something that happened when she was filming Terminator Genisys in New Orleans with costar Jai Courtney.

The house that she was staying in was super hot one night, so they decided to go to Home Depot at 3 a.m. to pick up a window unit air conditioner. She was a little nervous about being recognized, so she donned a baseball cap and a valley girl accent so she'd blend in. And she pretty much nailed it.

Walmart Refuses Customer a Confederate Flag Cake, Makes Him an ISIS Cake [Video]

It doesn't really matter how you feel about the whole Confederate Flag controversy, it's hard to argue with this guy.

The man went into a Walmart recently and asked the bakery to make him a Confederate Flag cake with the text "Heritage Not Hate" printed on it. Walmart refused to make this cake, holding to their policy of not selling anything with the Confederate Flag image on it. Well, the same guy then went into Walmart and successfully bought a cake with an image of the ISIS battle flag on it. And he's got all the proof in the video below.
