    Shertenlieb Show? Rich Radio? - mornings on ZLX

    I assume this show is 6-10 since everything else indicates a direct competiton with T&H, but why so silent on show times?

    Toucher and Hardy: The new 98.5 morning show

    I hear that. When I tuned in on Monday and heard RJ doing the updates, I immediately thought Fred was out again.

    Toucher and Hardy: The new 98.5 morning show

    He's new to the show but not the company. He has time accrued and likely had this planned for a while since MA is on school vacation and listenership is probably down this week.

    No kidding. They should go with "Proud owner of scalebreakers.com." It's something, at least.

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    Turned on the show right before 7:00 during the Wachusset Mountain ad to hear Wallach and Fred drooling over Kendra. "You're a woman, not a girl." Unlistenable today.

    Wallach the third....whatever. In for Hardy as the second, for sure.

    All of this is my issue with her. What is her value as a weekly member of the Bankroll Bunch if her gambling knowledge is minimal? What is her added value to the show as an occasional guest? I mean they can start a "Creepy Time with Freddy T" segment, but it wouldn't be great (and we know this...

    Fred doesn't come right out and say it, but he doesn't go out of his way to hide his contentment with Rich gone. Listen to the show as they come back from any commercial break and Fred awkwardly mentions how the show has no name with Rich gone, and it usually comes with some commentary about...

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    I'm curious what the last Rich-produced piece was on T&R. The last thing I can think of that was produced by someone was the List Time segment, but I think that was Lockhart. What I'm trying to say is how much of Rich's production talent has he brought to the show in recent history? Maybe since...

    Is there a doctor in this thread that can advise Fred on how to reduce the swelling of his ego now that they fired Rich and kept him (AKA "the right guy")?

    And there it is. They will not don the robes and wigs and do Fart Court anymore. Brookline 911 may be reimagined but will not look the same if it returns. Suck.

    Yeah Fred did a fine job. Forced to rate it, I'd say 8/10. However, there were undertones in his recap about how "weird" Rich is. Maybe Rich was offered a mega deal and still passed. IDK. People are strange and this is strange. It's a shakeup I wish wasn't happening.

    Let's recap: T&R is born on WBCN. They kill it. Move to 98.5 and continue to kill it Rich's wife gets sick. The Boston radio world rallies. Everyone loves Rich COVID and booze kill Fred's marriage. Has a breakdown on the radio and goes to rehab. Rich steps in Fred has another breakdown, treats...

    What makes T & R great is their edgy "shock jock" (for lack of a better term) approach to radio. It's all anyone says in the folklore of how they went from WBCN to 98.5. Would their rock radio style translate to the world of sports talk radio? OMG, it did! Killer ratings! Marconi award! Toucher...

    Yeah the show owns them but Rich has been the primary content contributor to them, so him turning the keys over to someone else doesn't feel good. This and the above reference to T & R normally negotiating together really sucks.

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    Beasley has to see ratings are down when either T or R are out and ratings up when they are in and at their best. I am thinking the rebranding of the socials is a power play on R's part as he works out his own negotiations. In one fell swoop all the followers of the show's socials were...

    I don't like how Fred found them insufferable. They are funny. The weather guy gives Brick from Anchorman vibes, and they have a few good bloopers you can find online.

    Fred and Wallach teased this when they went to break before her segment, and I immediately said "nope" and did Spotify for the rest of my commute. This segment is officially one I will skip each week unless you all comment here that something new and entertaining starts coming out of it.

    The segment sucks now without Joe. Just scrap it since he's going full-time nights soon.
