The Don Geronimo Show – February 1, 2012
Today, with Dave out sick, Don decides to call Craig into the studio to sit in with him and Phantom. Don begins by talking about the discussion that Phantom and Craig had before the show about Rock ‘n Roll. Don then calls in Billy and Ron to discuss where they will be going today to give out Kings tickets. The guys decide on the “It’s A Grind” coffee shop in Galt, where a burglar was shot by cops just days earlier. After having Craig screen a few phone calls on the air, Don plays the worst National Anthems ever, including Michael Bolton’s at Fenway Park, and Roseanne Barr’s in San Diego.
After Don shows us a new internet trend called “breading,” where people bite holes into slices of bread and then put their cats face through it and take pictures, we find out about Adam Sandler’s new movie, based on the children’s board game “Candy Land.” This gets Little Joe to start doing his Sandler impersonation, which leads to him singing a round of songs, including the “Penis,” “Anus,” and “Vulva” songs, as well as the gospel hit “Looking For A City.” We also hear a tape of President Lyndon B. Johnson talking to JFK’s mother on the phone after JFK was shot. This leads Don to pull out the famous LBJ “Bunghole” tape, in which the President is ordering slacks from a tailor.
We then get a visit from Las Vegas oddsmaker Pat Morrow. Pat gives us the Super Bowl odds, and tells us some of the crazy things you can bet on during the Super Bowl. Billy and Ron are finally in Galt, and they call in to tell us who they’ve given tickets out to. Don even talks to a few of the lucky listeners. Comedian Bobby Slayton then drops by. Bobby, who will be in the studio next week, talks about how he got his nickname “The Pit Bull of Comedy,” people who mistake him for being in certain movies, rock bands that he’s opened for, and why he likes to talk dirty onstage.
After another visit from Billy and Ron, Don tells us about the text he got from Dave’s wife Melissa, who describes in detail just how sick Dave is. We also hear Mitt Romney’s Florida Primary victory speech, and what George Clooney used to confess to as a young Catholic boy.
It’s then time for the “Phantom News Hour.” Today, Phantom talks about Don Cornelius’ suicide at the age of 75, Mitt Romney winning the Florida primary, John Clese on “Whitney” tonight, and who will perform at the Grammy’s. And of Course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
