Sh*t Show merch is here – and there’s a wine to go with it! JB calls on the jobs that LinkedIn suggests for him. We talk Johnny Depp’s turd trial and more talking headlines. A listener finds dead bodies at work and another remembers an old show character (well, well, well). Plus: The Doobie Brothers are finally in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Michael McDonald’s live in the Lovedart Lounge, direct from The Brandmeier Archives.
We play our classic celebrity wake-up call to the late Sean Connery, discuss the hot new pandemic trend — living in a van (DOWN BY THE RIVER!) — and Costco’s monkey problem. A bar owner who’s ticked off at the latest shutdown is on the line. We review a Netflix doc – the octopus is not our teacher! – and more.
A listener complains about the show’s length. LinkedIn has suggestions for JB’s next gig – selling flying squirrels isn’t one of them. More mishaps in broadcasting: Troy Aikman mocks flyovers and Jeffrey Toobin masturbates on a Zoom call. Plus: Wa wa wee wa – Borat is back! And so is the original Borat/Brandmeier interview.
JB & Buzz (aka Judge Mental) discuss the new “politically correct” world of broadcasting – the tweets and talk of fired radio guys, Bill Burr’s SNL monologue, and the renaming of the Eskimo Pie. Also, David Crosby’s “meh” memorial for Eddie Van Halen, the only 3 places in America without COVID, and Eddie Abler’s report on fishing boat caskets. Plus: a radio flashback with Lenny Kravitz.
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.
