The Staff

Question #4 was answered today!

Today’s caller, the “not so lovely” Linsey had the correct answer today:

Who mysteriously and eerily predicted in September 2006 that the P&YR show would be heard in Key West.

Brad Neltzer – in the “Book of Feet

And this gives us question #5:
Question #5: What do Jefferson and Nixon have in common?

I have a feeling that we’re going to have to think outside the box again – and maybe not the actual people.

Tommy is now gone…

Paul announced on his Facebook today that Tommy is now gone from the show. It’s a sad week for the Paul and Young Ron show. First, they lose Steve and now Tommy. Who next?

Ok friends, Tommy Owen is out. We wish him well in his future endeavors. He wants to be a Hollywood screen writer! so, the search for the next member of the P/R show is on…I have two candidates that I love so far. Will fill you in when I can…

Also – the podcast form today is very poor in quality and extremely choppy – it took me 3 tries just to get the wrong answer but there was a lot of comments from the staff on her answer (like she was extremely close).

Lastly, the You Can’t Win update tomorrow will also be late (I pray the quality of the podcast is MUCH better). More work at work (yeah, it sucks when I have to do that during YCW, but work does pay the bills). :)

Today’s You Can’t Win and Paul’s challenge part II

I have to say this was the best April Fool’s Day joke they’ve ever played – this even beats OMG’s Halloween prank last year. I started to lose reception around mile marker 44 on Alligator Alley but I was able to bounce between Big 105.9 and The Gater 98.7 but I started to really lose it around mile marker 80 so I actually took an exit near there, pulled over and took out my laptop and aircard so I could listen though web radio. This was classic. If I had been in my office I would have called in to play along.

I have to admit – OMG deserves something from this – he is such a good sport considering what they do to him. (Plus what a great job with the prank – the cast, the sponsors, and the callers all did a great job!)

So the big question is – when did you know it was a prank? When Eric got the first question right I thought that it could be extremely possible but once he got into the story with the second question, I knew something was up (although it was great to listen to!).

As for Paul and the Quantum of Solace – I put the movie at the top of my queue on (the same day I returned my three movies). The three were received late Monday, this movie shipped out yesterday and I got it today. I don’t know why Paul was saying some time in May with Netflix but I got mine in 3 working days. (and if it is because he was on a free trial, you’d think Netflix would make them a higher priority so they might actually sign up?).

No YCW today but OMG has a rather interesting breakfast.

Yep, there is no You Can’t Win today, OMG is eating some rather disgusting food (although the avacado shake didn’t sound that bad).

But, toothpaste and baby powder?  That is really gross.

Mike’s Ratings (I might miss a few of these since I am at work):
1 being the least disgusting, 10 being the worst.
0 being something Mike would definately eat again.

  • “Rooster Fries” (Testicles) : 0 (“Tastes like chicken” OMG would eat it again)
  • Buttered Cow’s Hoof: 1
  • Avacado Milkshake : 1
  • Beef Tripe (Stomach lining) : 2
  • Chicken Feet :3
  • Roasted Marrow Bone : 4
  • Pickled Octopus : (Rating not said on the webcast though the Gater)
  • Limburger cheese w/ onions and strawberries sandwich : 7?
  • Goat’s Head (Brain) : 7
  • Squid Chips : 8 (Paul at some and had to leave the stuido “The worst thing he’s ever had in his life”)
  • Toothpaste and baby powder: 8 (Possibly disqualified since it is not technically food
  • Belut (sp?) – Duck Embryo (partially developed): 8.5(Mike spit it out or threw up :) I am getting sick just thinking of this one)
  • Goat’s Head (Eye) : 9? (Tastes like warm mayonaise but due to the technical difficulties I missed OMG’s rating)

Quotes of the week:
Steve: “He’s gone from eating balls to sucking on a bone”

Steve: I’d eat the testicles.
Paul: But that’s normal for you.
Steve: But I normally don’t swallow

Dave Lamont – let go?

So, it seems that the sportscaster of WIOD, Dave Lamont, was let go. What is Clear Channel doing? It’s sad to see him go but maybe CC has good reasons for this or did he get another job?

It looks like he got into an argument with one of the program directors at 610AM and was “let go” due to this. It looks like we won’t be enjoying him on the Paul & Young Ron show anymore. :(

I should have noticed something was missing the past few days. Good luck, Dave. Hopefully you can quickly pick yourself back up with a good job.
