Live radio choices this morning.
Anthony Cumia (born April 26, 1961)
Is that the new conquest?
They are absolutely destroying Stern right now. Great radio in these last 10 or so minutes.
Ant conqured that conquest many moons ago.
I plead the 5th
What guest (comedian) were they referring to at the end of the show?
Stern still strong arming some guest???
Sounds like it's a comic that is appearing on THSS on Monday. I wish they would have called the person out.
an O&A regular guest for 8 years....
I'm a huge O&A fan but they are full of shit that Stern is strong arming guests from doing their show. Louis CK and Amy Schumer have appeared on both shows on the same day. They share so many guests it is ridiculous. At least a dozen times this year on O&A they've had a guest leave to do Stern or a guest come directly from Stern's show to theirs.
Odds are that Sirius is just a shit company and they don't have a lot of synergy between channels. O&A constantly complain that other shows book guests and then never offer them the guest for an interview. So they'll see some celebrity wandering around the halls and they can't get an interview.
Also you think Stern cares about his guests? When Gary doesn't even book anyone? "Boff I just wait until some publicist calls. I don't book guests I just wait for a call". Oh yeah the brain trust operation behind the Stern Show really is so powerful that they ban guests from going on other shows.
there are some guests that the stern show still strong arms.
Sterns other move is to keep a guest way long so they can't do O&A
I just think O&A are whining too much. Especially Opie. They bitch about Sirius like children. "Wah wah when is our bus tour going to happen?!". "Why don't we have a visual element!!". "Why don't we get paid more!!". Meanwhile Opie is busy doing crossword puzzles, Jim misses tons of days because of standup, and Sam is awful on microphone. Like Opie gives a shit about the guests on the show when he's busy doing crossword puzzles most of the show and Norton is gone half of the week.
I wish Opie did crossword puzzles all of the time and didn't talk on mic.
Yeah, I think Stern and his people care. Louis CK and Amy Schumer are too big so those rules don't apply to them. Lisa Lampignelli even said so on the After Show that she doesn't do their show for political reasons.
Hell, I remember a few years ago that Jay Thomas was scheduled to be on Opie and Anthony. The day came and no Jay Thomas. Then Jay explained why. He was told by Don Buchwald that it was in the best interest that he not do their show. So to the guy with the Gilber Vampire avatar, yes they do block guests from being on other shows.
I do agree that they bitch too much. If you don't have a visual element blame yourself. Oddly enough Jim was on Artie's show talking about this and they both agree that it's their own fault. Companies and agents only do so much. I also agree they don't put a full effort into the show. Playing clips all the time. Last Friday's show was 4 hours of playing the police scanner on the air. Boring shit. Also they start the show 15 minutes into the 6 oclock hour. Not exactly eye of the tiger there folks.
Also yeah, Jimmy is mostly never there. I can guarantee those Leno appearances don't do shit for his career. They are a waste of time.
