    Im over the whole tradio thing.

    But the call they played today of Sal ordering food at the train station made me laugh. An oldie but goodie.

    The call that sticks out for me (because its in heavy rotation) is the call to the scooter store.

    The interesting part about that call is that Sal and Richard seem to have different ideas of what kind of "scooter" they're talking about. Richard is sitting at home with a little mobility scooter to "watch his stories" on the TV, while Sal is hotrodding a moped down the street. And no one cares.

    But none of the bits are nearly as entertaining once you find out they're mostly fake.

    I think the guys have moderate talent but Howard is dead set on NOT letting them use it.

    Richard getting waxed was hysterical to hear and is in my top 3 of all-time, but that was in the stone age. Since then, major suckage...

    Some of their calls are really genius. The one I'm thinking is the washer/dryer, fur coat, and basketball goal for sale.

    Horrible because they don't do anything and are wasting what should be productive years thinking of ways to squeeze each other's asses and see each other naked.

    Unless it's Jim Florentine making them, phony phone calls aren't really funny. And if you heard one Sal and Richard Tradio call, you've heard them all. But I don't fault Sal and Richard for not bringing the funny now that I know that Gary is the one who is giving them advice and deciding what bit is funny enough for the air.

    Gary only shows up two days, besides napping, solitare, and working when would he review the guys stuff. They can be funny but need to be on mic so the brilliance that is their ignorance shines.

    i think they are the only remaining people there who still have their integrity.

    sal should just go off on howie...by far, the funniest, most cutting edge guy on the show.

    He really should. Just for shits & giggles. I doubt Howard would even fire him. Howard couldn't even fire Artie.

    Richard and Sal unleashed are extremely funny.

    On a show that is heavily censored and pc.... not so much.

    Howard has become Imus. Listen to how he treats these people.

    I think Howard raised the whole Sal/Richard issue because he wants to air his new set of grievances with SiriusXM. He implied if he fired Sal & Richard, he couldn't hire anyone in their place.

    Howard: "There's a new thing around here. When someone leaves, they charge me for building repairs around here and I can't rehire anyone."
