Cool. Looking forward to the competition's version of the numbers
Same here. I'm sure they'll end up somewhere in the same ballpark, but people love ripping on T&R for over exposing people like Pasta Joe but K&C are running out the same 3 characters daily. I haven't listened to K&C for more than 5 minutes a day in months but it seems like Tanguay hasn't been around, Trenni is gone and they just have Mutt constantly and there's only so much you can make fun of him for having a DUI before it gets old. Apparently from Twitter retweets there was some huge controversy today or yesterday and Kirk is threatening to go to Barstool and that's the reason why the ratings are down but I couldn't figure out what anyone was referring to without having to actually listen.

Kirk weighs in but I have no clue what he’s taking about.

No chance that Turtleboy is affiliated with the show....none.

This has to be fake. They aren't actually associating themselves with Turtleboy? We went around this like a year ago where Turtleboy is like the worst reddit has to offer and is a horrible person. Even for these two clowns, that's disgusting.

When can Kirk finally go national because he'll be fired in 6 months at the most? I'd love a legitimate program opposite T&R to actually listen to. I listen to OMF even though its bad but it's something fine from time to time, I gave up of Felger and Mazz a year or two ago and vastly prefer Keefe. The morning show is just so bad.

Oh my god STOP with the Paul Stanley shit! Jesus these guys can murder a bit!
Also, know your audience. If they are so big with the 18-34 demographic...none of those listeners gives a shit about KISS, they may not really even know that Paul Stanley is in KISS. They definitely are showing their age. They all riff off of each other about music and talk a lot about albums that I never heard of and have discussions about what songs by certain artists are on which albums. It gets old. I have no idea what they are talking about.

By the same token the same could be said about Eddie Money, he does him alot too. Difference is though he doesn't devote half an hour to him *plus the whole Eddie Money and the dead body thing is pretty funny*.

How many people in the 18-34 demographic actually listen to the radio? And KISS is still pretty popular with 20 somethings because of The 70's Show.

You realize that show hasn’t made new episodes for 12 years right?
And been in syndication forever. Someone who is 18 might not care, but someone who is 22-29 knows all about it.

edit: Hell, KISS is constantly on Family Guy.

This is definitely my go-to morning listen, but I really hate when Adam Jones fills in for someone. He's the Eric Wilbur of radio. He's all negative, all the time, in ways that are just transparently trolling.

Match that with Fred believing in absolutely anything remotely negative about the Patriots, and you have this morning's crap discussion about Brady's interview with Oprah.

No thanks. NPR it is.

Adam Jones works well with Rich because Rich will start making fun of him when he starts going negative. Fred, on the other hand, is just waiting for the chance to use Adam Jones as someone who will agree with whatever negative take he comes up with without the pushback he usually gets.

I mostly agree with this, but I will say Fred pushed back on him a good bit when I was listening to Jones talk about how he couldn't relate to Brady and a situation where Brady's kids were dealing with other kids saying they didn't want to be friends with them because of who their dad was. Fred seemed astonished that Jones couldn't see that Brady was saying he has parenting issues just like any other Dad.

I'm with you. Anything with Adam Jones is an immediate click for me. Mr Negative about everything, and negative in a non-thoughtful way.

They had him interviewing Irish soccer fans and he literally made the exact same mistakes with both people he talked to. Even though the 1st guy explained to him where he was wrong.

I was surprised to hear that the simulcast is ending and they'll no longer be on NBCSB. Fred just kind of said it in passing.

I wonder if Felger & Mazz is going as well? I don't care since i haven't turned them on in 6 months but this could change a lot of NBCSB's programming.

Edit: And their contract on the radio is up?

Wife and kids are gone for the day so I put on T&R on TV....watching Sarge is genuinely uncomfortable. He has nervous ticks with blinking and kind of rolling one eye and he does some odd smile after everything he says

A few people just called in and commented on the smile, it was really a tough watch.....

Two more weeks, and you won't have to worry about seeing Sarge's (or anyone's) mugs anymore.

+1 on Hardy. He's great as a fill in on T&R. He'd probably be a good 2nd to Adam Jones as well.
