I stayed for about 45 min due to Arcand but gave up after that. I can't take that much negativity in the morning.

It took me less than 1 minute. I often don't recognize the voices of the evening hosts right away and thought that it was an interview for the first 10-20 seconds. Basically as soon as I realized it was Jones filling in, I switched over to My Word.

I made it 3 minutes, and bailed when Jones said "quote unquote extension" for the third time. I'm not sure they could pick a worse replacement host. Podcasts it is until T&R return.

Funny, I heard exactly those words when I got into the car and recognized the voice and changed the station right away...

Over to Hillman's show, where I heard Wiggins' voice and switched to a CD.

Jones is probably best left to nights but to be fair I can barely take short bursts of T+R anymore and usually only during the Danny interviews.

Loving this 10 year anniversary show. Playing all the good montages from over the years. Right now it's the 2011 Bruins.
Any chance they played the clip of the European guy during the Sox drunken recap years ago saying "I don't like fats ladies." Dying to hear that clip again. I'll never forget Fred absolutely LOSING it during that clip.

The Charlie Sheen visit was amazing. I remember hearing it live and loving it.

Ha! Something like "ladies from Turkey are verry verry fat". Loved that one

i didn’t hear it live but turned it on that morning for a 2 hour commute to Watertown to visit a customer and was shocked. They replayed it from 6-8 or whatever. Fred had way too much knowledge about Charlie’s upbringing.

...so is Fred back on Monday? And will Rich be there too? *I don't listen to the show if either of them is out. No desire to listen to the collection of misfit toys that make up the fill-in staff*

I actually really like Joe Murray.
I'm not a Wallach hater like some folks, but Murray was the update guy/3rd chair with T&R today... and I think the show was better. Not sure if it would be after several weeks, sometimes these update guys have a short shelf life, but today was pretty good.

Oh my god, did not hear it live but checked out the podcast based on the description above. I was in tears and breathing into a bag to regain my composure. Like how does it get to that volume?! When I'm in a public setting I may not be able to control gas fully but can squash it a bit. That is the sound of someone lifting a cheek and unabashedly letting one rip.

I checked out the podcast based on the last few entries... that was fantastic. The dead air when they were all silently cracking up after first playing the clip was golden. Whoever the third guy was (Marshall Hook ?) was actually adding a ton to the show. The absence of Wallace was delightful. Great stuff.

I really enjoy Ted Johnson on with T&R. He brings a lot to the table and I like the way he interacts with both Fred and Rich.

Any clue what personal stuff he was illuding to? I didn't listen to the interview but I listened to the beginning where he talked about going through stuff, getting his life in order, etc

It is well documented on that very radio station: he hung around some "bad bitches", "smoked Swishers" and had the "V.I.P. on swole" a bit too much.

the best part is the 911 operators, police and fire love They do it. The lines should be kept clear for real emergencies and not a kid is kicking up dust on A baseball field or someone is running a lead blower.
I would love to hear them get some of these dispatchers on the show. You can just tell how they just barely tolerate these people

This morning was a great example of why Fred and Rich are best together, while separately they're OK-ish. Rich refusing to really go after Kyrie over his comments from last week about his grandfather's passing was not great radio. Rich just couldn't be the jerk who (rightfully) crushed Kyrie for that terrible ret-conning. I suspect Fred would have done it gleefully and it would have been glorious.

I listened for the first 45 minutes this morning and, no exaggeration, Wallach said at least 65% of the words. Even Fred was doing the..."right, uh-huh, yea" while he was talking. You could tell that he was annoyed.

Sometimes Wallach just gets in a "zone" where he blabs and blabs. My favorite is that every one of his takes is hedged by a disclaimer of "BUT" (emphasis on the "T"), where he tries to play both sides. Brutal radio/listening either way.

Fred seems super checked out lately. I love T&R and think it's a great radio program, but Fred's been mailing it in for months. His hot takez like BB is a horrible person is boring, the AB stuff was boring (outside of fart noises). When Fred give takez, the show is bad. Same way as it was bad when Rich talked about AD to the Celtics for 3 years or Kyrie for 2 years. Boring. His whole thing today about "Brady doesn't even try to evade the rush anymore" was awful. There was a free rusher constantly yesterday and when Phil Howe came on said Fred was a moron. I dont know why Freddy T is all about the Hot Takez lately but it's brutal. I turned it off and went to watch Peaky Blinders

The Brandon Merriweather interviews have been awesome. It's refreshing because he's about as open and honest about his playing days as they come and he brings a fun personality as well. He just seems completely genuine during every interview.

Same with Ted Johnson, he's just not as colorful... Walldick where you at?

The best thing about Merriweather is that he could do these interviews for the next 20 years and still not know which one of them is Fred or Rich.

Much as I get sick of listening to Fred bitch, I gotta say I kinda agree with him on this Minshew mustache thing. It really is weird how amused the media is about the fact that a man has a mustache

I love Nick, his attempt at reading a simple ad is so funny.
He's still the owner of one of my favorite moments in T+R history back when they were on in the afternoon on WBCN. He was just Intern Nick back then and they had him read an add for like a local kids play place (Chuck E Cheese-esque) and he completely butchered it. I couldn't stop laughing. I just remember "we have the biggest ball pit in THE New England" and doubling over in laughter.

You probably had to be there.

It was the Johnson Center for the Mentally Challenge I think.
