    Just thinking about how much bitching and complaining people (myself included) have been doing about THSS's lack of comedy, just wondering what bits/interviews you all think stunk. Here are a few things I didn't care for:

    a) the Nils Lofgren interview; might be a nice guy but he took forever to tell his stories and there was nothing interesting about them.
    b) the "mistaken" boxer interview--anybody remember this one? There was some fuckup where interviewed the wrong person completely and still acted as though he was?
    c) Any time Karen from Montreal gets through--they now have their Maryann from Brooklyn.

    Overall though, there are a whack of other bits that just kill. The kill:bomb ratio is like 10:1 but I was just curious what you guys thought were the "weaker" moments.

    I remember thinking that it had to be a bit, but it wasn't. It was odd that they never (I think) said who fucked up with that one.

    Not to nit pick, but it's Karen from Boston. How many times is she going to mention that she has a disabled father, and that means she has some sort of bond with Artie? It's funny because she loves Artie, but every time she calls in Artie starts with the "put the lotion in the basket". She does realize he is telling her to shut the fuck up, right?

    I'll get back to you with my own picks for lousy bits.

    Going to have to agree with this one. It was funny the first time, but he drags it out too long.

    Sports scored period. In 1980, I used to listen to late-night radio to get sports scores. It is now 2012. We have teh internets for that now. Reading scores now just wastes air time. I think the Irish thing is N&A protesting to their clueless bosses.

    More comedy, less boring sports.

    My bad, I got that broad confused with the caller from Montreal that always gets through. And NOBODY puts RodFromBayside in the corner.

    I agree that they're fucking with the scores in that awful lousy attempt at a brogue because they resent having to do it.

    They should read the Globetrotter's score every night.

    Rod's good with me. Keep calling in Rod. Ask them the Globetrotter's score next time.:lo5:

    Gotta disagree with you there, buddy. I used to pay attention to baseball, but now I couldn't give two shits.

    Agree, though its a hard break and it reminds me of Hannity radio lingo that all those boring cookie cutter shows use. Ugh hate that too. I've heard Rick mutter that he's been told to tone down political bs, haha.
