The Don Geronimo Show – July 9, 2012
We’re back!! Don and the gang have returned from there vacation, and Don has all kinds of stories to tell us about his trip to Ocean City, including the debacles he and Janet encountered with a rude steward, the baggage claim, the rent-a-car place, and the TSA. We also hear about Don’s uncomfortable hotel bed, the “That’s what she said” guy at the beach, a naked baby, why old people should have their own airlines, and why family gatherings should only last 15 minutes. While we were away, Andy Griffith passed away, as did Ernest Borgnine, and Don asks who will complete the trifecta. Don decides to call Abe Vigoda to make sure he’s still alive, and Abe invites Don out to coffee that morning!
After Don gives Janet a call to have her talk about the loud mouth lady on the flight home, the guys talk about their favorite Andy Griffith episodes, and Don calls McDonalds’ in Cobb County, GA, to ask about a guy who dropped his pants in front of one of their stores because of the unbearable heat. Don also gets a call from one of his idols: Harv Moore, who helped get Don into radio when he was just a kid. Don decides to book him for an interview on Wednesday, before discussing the new Spiderman movie, and playing some of Borgnine’s best clips from Basketball, Poseidon Adventure, and Spongebob Squarepants. We also hear why Wayne Brady wants to “slap the sh-t out of Bill Maher,” and a Pearl Jam fan who got to pick the set list for their Amsterdam show.
It’s then time for the “Phantom News Hour.” Today, Phantom tells us about Billy Bush breaking his clavicle during a bike accident, Kourtney Kardashian has a new brat, the cast of “Happy Days” settles a merchandising dispute, and the passing of the inventor of “Electronic Football.” And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
