RIP Eddie Van Halen – from the Brandmeier Archives, we play the full, unedited Van Halen studio interview. Other topics include sh*t stories in the news, a CNN anchor ambushed by raccoons, a man who found a brain in Wisconsin, and the ongoing mask debate. Plus: A roadie comments on Buzz’s plan for ONE billionaire to save live music and we get back to back live calls from Mississippi.
Johnny’s perturbed by a listener who questions his professionalism. We talk about how the NFL’s brought back a sense of normalcy and hope the season continues, our pal Weird Al takes on that debate, and more. Bored at home during the pandemic? Teach your dog to talk (we call a guy who’s working on it) or do what Johnny does – call tech support and play clips from Nell. Plus: a listener emailed us about a bed bug problem – guess who responds to him?
JB gets pulled over by a police officer who’s a fan of the Moo Moo song. From the archives, conversations with the late Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers and Sylvester Stallone’s mother Jackie. Calling one billionaire – Buzz wants you to save live music clubs – and a guy in Milwaukee wants us all to save the Taco Bell Mexican pizza.
Some news you can lose: a TikTok star explains how to get free food from restaurants, a YouTuber poops on Nancy Pelosi’s driveway, a dentist gets time for performing surgery while on a hoverboard, Senator Chuck Schumer does stand-up, and more. Plus: Big Ten is back, Chris Rock’s on Fargo, and one of our listeners is a hero.
A California wildfire was caused by a gender reveal party – we talk to the woman who started the trend (not the fire!). A guy on a mission to have boneless wings removed from menus calls in. We get ready for some football…with Liberace?! And Johnny wonders…are we all just army ants going in circles with COVID info?
Actor and comedian Bob Einstein, aka Super Dave Osborne and Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm, was one of our all-time favorite guests. He passed away while we were gone and we never got to pay proper tribute, so this episode is our salute to Super Dave! He called in whenever he felt like it and would jump into the conversation with whoever we had on, from Norm Macdonald, Bobby Goldsboro, a turkey calling champion, and others. He talks about his appearances on Curb and tells many jokes you’ll want to remember.
A bison ripped a biker chick’s pants off at Sturgis – we talk to the woman who caught the whole thing on video. We discuss the My Pillow Guy’s cure for COVID, the NBA announcer suspended for accidentally tweeting the N-word, the MLB announcer fired for an anti-gay slur, and more. The world record holder for most words spelled backwards in one minute joins us. Plus: a montage of the crazy little things Buzz says.
Jim Belushi joins us to talk about his pot farm & new show “Growing Belushi.” The Italian duo who did the song “Stay Home You Sonnomabetch” give us a taste of it live. Johnny gets political (about scrotum frogs in Lake Titicaca), talks about Smash Mouth going crazy at the Sturgis Biker Rally, and has some sound advice for MLB broadcasts with no crowd.
