The Don Geronimo Show – November 16, 2011
Today, Don begins by playing the air checks of his favorite screaming disc jockey, Dr. Brock. We then get a visit from Ex NFL quarterback Phil Simms, who is now a broadcaster for The NFL on CBS, and Showtime’s Inside The NFL. Joe tells us what it was like to play for Coach Bill Parcells, how the Texans will rebound with Matt Schaub out of the lineup, and the resurgence of Alex Smith and the 49ers. Don then tells us about the White House receiving gunfire yesterday, and the CBS interview (or lack thereof) with ex-Penn St. coach Mike McQueary. After hearing a few clips from another screaming DJ, Captain Whamo, Don plays us a clip of a guy who called 911 5 times because his phone wasn’t working.
Don had a meeting yesterday with his new sponsor, the gentleman’s club Centerfolds, and as a gift, they gave him a shoebox full of porno DVD’s, and a package of vibrating penis rings. Don manages to get 10 of the rings on his microphone, then calls in Julie Ryan from KNCI to guess how many he has on. Don then gives away some of the DVD’s to callers. Comedian Michael Ian Black makes another visit, to promote his appearance at Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco this weekend. Michael talks about the numerous TV shows and movies he’s worked on, preparing for a live stand-up show, and addresses the rumor that he’s gay.
Don then reads us a list of toys that have been inducted into the Toy Hall Of Fame, and tells us about an Indiana woman who got turned away from a Taco Bell drive-thru in her motorized wheelchair, and then proceeded to drive through the glass front door of the place. The guys also discuss this being the last week of Regis and Kelly, and how Regis is being treated like an animal getting put down. It’s then time for ‘Peanut Butter Karaoke.” Among the songs the guys sing with mouthfuls of peanut butter: Van Halen’s “Why Can’t This Be Love?” John Lennon’s “Imagine,” and Eric Clapton’s “Tears In Heaven.” Craig spits peanut butter across the room, Little Joe vomits, and everyone else just sounds strokey. Don then calls Julie Ryan back in to have her give it a try.
It’s ten time for the “Phantom News Hour.” Among the stories today: A petition to keep Target from opening on Thanksgiving, Bradley Cooper being named as People’s 2011 “Sexiest Man Alive,” the new CBS early morning show, and Tiger Woods being paired up with his ex-caddy’s new boss for this weekend’s President’s Cup. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
