    It's not funny, it's not fun. :facepalm:

    Are they related or something? Brock seems like just another one of his hacky hangers on that Artie feels too bad to get rid of.

    I didn't mind him so much until they decided to have a super lame 30 minute interview of Andre the Giant, ugh WTF :(

    Just my two cents, but I'm a forum newb so my opinion doesn't really matter.

    Your thoughts...

    Am I in the minority here?

    I liked him with Bocchetti at the super bowl, but, the andre the giant and dangerfield impressions are quite tired. I though he might have been Rick's friend based on some things he said, something like ~i've known him for years, so something like that. I don't really know how he got hooked up with the show, what he does when he's not on the show, etc. He's good on the live look ins when he sits in on the show, but in general, phone interviews are blah. Welcome to the forum, mix it up, don't be a gunnar

    i think brock is funny in moderation. when it goes on for 20-30 minutes it gets old quick.

    Brock was just some guy that called into the show, right? And Nick definitely didn't know him beforehand, I was listening to an old show the other day where Nick says something along the lines of "I thought I was going to hate Brock, but I really like him. He's genuinely funny and has good comedic timing." Or something like that.

    Andre was funnier when he was gay. Artie shot himself in the foot with the Culliver thing. Now they have to be careful with the gay jokes, though it looked like they were headed in that direction anyway.

    I liked his Andre the Giant impression when it first happened and also his Rodney was great but like everything Artie drives it into the ground.

    Andre the Giant singing The 12 Days of Christmas was about 7 days too long.

    I don't remember him calling in. Like I said, I though Rick said something about knowing him but wasn't sure. I have no idea how he just started on the show, it was strange, he just was on and staying at Artie's shore house getting yelled at by his crazy i-talian mother (redundant)

    Brock was a caller on 04-02-12 hour 3 33:40 in. Strange call. Nick and Artie acted like this was the first time they talked to him.

    Listening live is never fun because you cant fast forward through bits such as said Andre the Giant interview.

    yup, that got a fast forward about half way through, Tom Papa is so milquetoast he got a fast forward (he must not be on tv anymore as the toupe and the rest has disappeared) and then a band and tony the gander were on the docket, so I just deleted.

    Brock is a bore. Joe Matarese= radio coal. Sometimes I think Artie feels sorry for some of these guys & puts them on out of pity. And I am very close to Bochetti overload. Artie had him do that dopey GPS thing the other night, then REPEAT the whole damn thing. Thank God I listen the next day at work & can FF through some of the more interminable bits.

    I am not the biggest BrockSucker fan.

    I think he has talent, it is just that the Andre and Mexican Rodney bits are overused by Arte.

    If they are hiring part-time talent then I would put that budget into FRBS (RfB) Rod from Bayside (though the other night DirecTV flashed it as "Rod in Bayside").

    RiB has shown some potential.

    With some coaching from Dan Falto (say it like you are singing a verse from the Mr. Roboto song) and Artie's final editing/guidance, I think Rodney could certainly be a better addition to a radio show then say Sal or Richard has been.

    Give Rod(ney) another chance, give Rodney a chance.

    Gunnar,
    Everybody's Pal.

    Brock can be funny, I actually like him. I thought he was pretty funny in that silence of the lambs bit they did.

    Yes, Bocchetti in very small doses can be somewhat amusing but he is being overused like crazy. We get it, he can't speak well. & Spike Eskin makes Brent Stover sound interesting.
