    I started listening this week. The co-host is fucking awful, but Ron is absolutely brilliant. I can't figure out if Fez is a bit or not, but it's almost irrelevant.

    The Ginger Baker interview was maybe the greatest thing I've listened to in three years. I thought it was a bit at first...and then I googled Ginger Baker. I'm now awe-struck.

    Last night I couldn't sleep so I checked out Ron's interview with Patrice. So fucking good. And his interview with Anthony Bordain and Bret Easton Ellis were top notch.

    I'm definitely gonna pursue Bennington's stuff and give the show a solid chance, but is there any bullshit I should overlook in the meantime?

    I've only been listening regularly for the last 6-7 months but I will tell you that Ron is one of the fastest on your feet (and reasonably well informed) talkers I've heard.

    If you mean Fez being fruity, that's no act.

    They used to be "Ron & Ron" out of Tampa, Fez was part of the morning zoo. It was a pretty good show, actually. Do they have a podcast or something?

    Fez is a total act. The guy playing him is married with kids.

    Ronny has the sharpest and quickest mind in radio, bar none and is probably the best interviewer on radio as well...The show loses me a little when they drift into movie talk

    Funny listening here from years ago

    I upgraded my Sirius sub to get O&A cause Howard offers next to nothing, and was surprised how good the Ron & Fez show is, not for everyone but I really like it.

    When it was Ron & Ron it was the only show that was ever as good as '90's Stern. They were broadcast all over the south and were beating Howard in every market they competed in. Thn Ron Diaz wife got aids, he went crazy and the show imploded. I think Bennington is great but can't stand Fez and haven't been able to get into the R&F Show.

    I've been enjoying Ron and Fez when I'm in my car at lunch time. I started listening several months ago after switching to the O&A show. Ron also seems to have his own interview show that airs on the weekend. Ron is great but you have to get used to his timing. He is not afraid to leave dead air while he gathers his thoughts. Fez only seems to show up when they are on a gay topic. I don't understand why they call it the Ron and Fez since Fez rarely talks and some other guy named Chris seems more like the co host rather than Fez.

    I've caught bits and pieces of the show, mostly if I happen to be driving when it's on or on weekend replays. Like any other show, it takes a little time to get used to the personalities and flow. I took me a while, but I'm definitely a fan of Ronnie B. - the dude is quick witted, intelligent, informed about the subjects he talks about and sneaky funny. I have no use for Fez (luckily he barely opens his mouth) and the other dude, the hard drinking 30-something whatever the fuck his name is....he strikes me as being an incredible douchebag.

    While I really like Ron - I have a lot of trouble listening because of all the slurping sounds he constantly makes ! Drives me batshit crazy !!
    I don't know if he drinks a lot throughout the show or if he produces too much saliva - but I often have to turn it off because there is too much slurping & it makes me want to vomit.

    They really need to get that fixed
