The Don Geronimo Show – April 4, 2013
The day begins with a recap of the NBA Board of Governors meeting yesterday, in which Mayor Kevin Johnson and his Dream Team did a tremendous job of presenting to the NBA why Sacramento should keep the Kings. The guys talk about the fine job Mayor KJ did with his team, and how proud they all are to be Sacramentans today. Don then opens a box full of gifts sent to the guys from a loyal listener in China, and calls an idiot texter, before asking a poignant question: Have we evolved past blackpeoplemeet.com? Drew decides to create a profile on the dating website, and that gets Don going on a Jewish dating website, where he himself creates a profile, while Craig also creates one on amigos.com.
The guys then talk about NBC’s handling of Jimmy Fallon taking over for Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” next year, and we hear a few clips of Leno slamming Letterman and NBC, Letterman Kimmel, and Conan ripping Leno, and Kimmel getting emotional on his show last night. We then hear the new Weird Al/Huey Lewis bit on funnyordie.com, before playing “Trap, Slap, or Strap” which the guys haven’t done in quite a while. The guys decide to add duct tape to the mix today, and Craig takes a video of Little Joe ripping Drew’s pubic hair off with the tape, which he promptly posts on Facebook and Twitter.
We then get a visit from actor/comedian Kevin Pollak. Kevin, who will be performing at the Punchline in San Francisco April 11-13, talks about the first time he was on Carson, how Bill Cosby influenced him and his comedy style, being in Casino, and even does his Christopher Walken for the fellas! After Kevin, the guys have a Facebook vs. Twitter discussion, before it’s time for the “Phantom News.” Today, a guy wrecks his car, buys insurance an hour later, and files a claim the next day, a TV station’s rescheduling of Andy Griffith causes an uproar, and a New Jersey man wins Powerball and pays rent for his neighbors. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
