Been trying to listen to Ron & Fez. What's wrong with that show?

    Those two guys must have the worst voices for radio in the history of radio. Fez sounds like the gay alien from "American Dad," and Ron sounds like a heavy breathing, slow talking, fatso that carries his "S"'s out way to long.

    "Hey Fez (slow exhale), you like to eat those Percsssssss? (slow exhale)" "You want to read those radio spotssssssss? (fat guy slow exhale)"

    What the fuck is wrong with these guys? Even the pace of the show seems off. Dead air makes up a good chunk of it. They're not as bad as maybe Abe Kanon, but shit, they're awful. Does anyone listen to that show?

    Ha! They are an aquired taste. All of the complaints you voice are valid. I listen to them when I am caught up on ONA. I haven't listened for a while, but I understand Fez and Patti are getting married soon.

    Who's Patti? I take it she has a thing for repressed gay men? She must be as nutty as he is.

    Serious? Stalker Patti from ONA. She's a virgin and Fez is a virgin plus the gay. It was a bet a bunch of years ago.

    Bite your tongue, sir....Ron Bennington is probably one of the best interviewers in radio and he has a lightning fast sense of humor. Fez, on the other hand....has issues....but the thing about this show is, you never know when something is a bit or not. He could very well be normal and him being fucked up for the last couple of years could be one of the longest radio cons in history. He does have a problem with blueberries, though...

    Check out some of Ron's interviews....

    All I'm hearing are the usual chunks of dead air. How are these guys in radio?

    I've listened to about 5 seconds of them. Still better than anything on H101.

    I'm surprised they're not on H101.

    Morrisey speaks the truth. Ronnie B is the best. It takes a while, but they will get you if ya stick around. At least that is what happened to me.

    On a separate note, blueberries made me think of when I joined this site. I forget where I put it, but I used the description "stand alone fruit" and Mario welcomed me to the site.

    It's definitely an acquired taste and a very unique show. I listened regularly around 2009 and had a sub for their downloads. I have way too many shows I listen to now but would love to hear those guys again. Especially since it sounds Fez is doing much better now that he's out of the closet.

    I don't like them for the most part. Not a fan of their show.

    Huh?...Who gives a shit what their voices sound like, it's what's said with them that matters...Ronny B is probably the smartest and funniest guy's on radio, maybe ever......



    This is so true....Both were pretty heavily involved with wrestling at some point so they know a thing about story lines...

    Couldn't agree more. When I still had a sub I tried to listen for about a week to give it a chance but to me it was worse than the shit that was on Howard 101. As everybody knows, that is saying a lot.

    If anyone wants to give them a listen, you can listen on Paltalk if you don't have an XM sub...they're on right now, actually...

    The show was great a few years ago, then Fez had a nervous breakdown and refused to talk on mic, but he was still there and was the cohost still, it ruined the show.

    When I lived in Tallahassee in college, it was the Ron and Ron show.... two Rons, with Fez Marie Whatley as their totally gay sidekick, who didn't think he was gay.

    It was a hilarious show at the time; Ron Bennington was really good - and Fez was over the top funny.

    Since they've gone to satellite radio, it seems they've gone down. They lost the other Ron, and Fez doesn't have his old schtick going - just boring, sadly.

    It's a shame, because I used to really lol at the old show.... :(

    I almost never hear Fez utter a word
