    ..and I've got to say, it (was) at least really, really funny shit.

    Like many people I was a diehard Stern fan and it was always in the back of my mind O&A were shitty hacks, and I disliked them without ever having listened to them. I almost wholly stopped listening to Stern when Artie left and just clung to listening to old shit on Youtube. I still love golden age Stern and even up to when Artie left, but like many here I was annoyed when his persona changed too much.

    I've really laughed my ass off at the decidedly non-PC slant of O&A and Jimmy (speaking of Youtube vids here of old shows.) Lots of great Patrice clips out there as well. I've definitely got a lot more respect for Jim Norton, dude is a great comedian, really fast wit, and I enjoy the irreverence.

    This is the kind of shit Stern might have said 15 or 20 years ago:



    These guys who match up video with the audio are really entertaining, i.e.:



    This Video O&A Youtube channel is great.



    Anyway, good shit. Shame I never listened to them sooner.

    Yeah, I got into O&A via old youtube clips and then I made the switch about two years ago. I love the vibe of them just interacting with their comedian friends. Reminds me a lot of the old days when Dice, gilbert, Sam, the Bellz and Richard Lewis would just stop by to break balls and do the news.

    I've always been a fan of when Vos would come on and they would just break his balls. The clip of them bashing his first ever stand up appearance was gold. Also, that big ass tribute they did to Patrice around the time of his death was amazing and is something I always go back to. If I had to do a list of favorite bits/moments from the show, I'd throw in these……

    -Patrice's "Black Philip"
    -Patrice Vs. Gallagher
    -Scorch bashing
    -XFL memories/angry Vince

    Anthony and Patrice had great chemistry together when discussing movies. Those two were huge film buffs.

    Anthony really misses him too. He speaks about him often.

    This is a great collection of his stories in dealing with his ex-wife.

    I started listening to O&A fairly regularly around the time the new Van Halen album came out and scoured YouTube for vintage clips related to the song Jimmy wrote. It's so goddamn funny.

    Mother of god.. I've listened to this one 3 times in the last two days. So many levels of fucking with Bobo. Colin freaking out.

    When Colin says "This is really fucking psychotic. You guys have gone evil.. It's like fuckin' Lord of the Flies!" I about die. :snicker:
