Welcome to the Fans of the Don Geronimo Show, The Week in Review, January 2-4, 2013.

Dappy Do Dear!


I have decided to post the week in review blog posts before I deliver the “podcast” version.  I have decided to scrap my original podcast format to create something new.  My goal is to deliver something different, progressive, and unique; a whole new approach that supports the blog, yet does not sound like a poorly produced radio show (like most podcasts do.)  My idea involves creating a mashup of good music, sound clips for the week, fan feedback, and my two cents.  Please stay tuned.

The Week in Review is brought to you by: Amazon.com

Don’s Show Notes:

The guys are back! And Don kicks off the first show of 2013 by telling us why his vacation sucked! Apparently Don caught the flu over the break, and he’s more than certain he got it from G.M. Steve, who’s battling a bug of his own. We hear about Don’s two weeks off, including the Bobby Slayton show, and the “indifferent” fans that were there, the CBS Radio Christmas Party that the guys all attended, Don’s buddy’s “backup light” game, and bowling with his family. The guys also discuss Noodles’ tweets over the vacation about his new girlfriend, and the guys are pretty sure he’s making her up.

Don then tells us about a website he found that has nothing but pictures of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler with cigarettes photo shopped in his mouth, and Don also tells us the Jay Cutler “Doooon’t Caaaaare!” story. Then Don and Little Joe geek out on Call Of Duty Black Ops, which they’re both apparently hooked on now. After LJ tells his Christmas story about his son Jack playing his new video game, Don gives Abe Vigoda a call, to talk about the passing of Jack Klugman, and we hear about a new DonGeronimo.org fan site.

Drew also tells us that he broke up with his girlfriend, but that it had NOTHING to do with Piper Rae. It’s then time for the “Phantom News.” Today, Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve tops the ratings, TV reminders, and a paparazzi gets hit and killed by a car while trying to photograph Justin Bieber. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a Caller 100!

Don: “I couldn’t beat off at all last week.”

Don’s Show Notes:

It’s time for the “2012 Doni Awards!” Among the categories this year: The Goofiest Looking Person At The Station, The Hottest Girl In The Station, Most Likely To Go Nuts And Shoot Up The Station, and Best Show Moment. After the Doni’s have been handed out, Don calls a few of the lucky winners, including Sweaty Sean, Steve Goss, and Noodles!

Don then introduces the guys to a new educational film, this time from 1955, called “Your Body During Adolescence.” After the guys marvel at how human bodies have evolved since the 50′s, we hear clips of Kathy Griffin on Letterman last night, Sam Jackson challenging an interviewer to drop the “N” bomb, and “Twilight” star Bronson Pelletier peeing on the carpet of an airport terminal.

After another edition of “Don Gets The Cash Call,” and Craig educates the guys on al-Jazeera, It’s time for “Phantom News.” Today, Meredith Vieira drops the “S” bomb on “Today,” Wendy’s new discount menu, and a stripper falls from a balcony while doing a lap dance. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!

Don’s Show Notes:

Doni Boy starts the day with the post show reaction to the “Doni Awards” yesterday, and has a few new awards as a result. We then hear that hammers kill people more than rifles, and Don really wants to start a show bowling team. After tossing around the idea of doing some live shows at bowling alleys against listeners, the guys play a new round of “Foreign or Domestic.” This time, Don calls the “Most Sexually Active” cities in the U.S.

We also hear that a local TV station is interested in doing a late night show with Don, much like the show he was testing a few years back, and tells the guys that they’ll be a big part of it, if it happens. We then get another visit from our good buddy Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Reno. Dennis tells the guys about his new show on Cinemax, “Working Girls In Bed,” his Andy Kaufman art show, in New York, and when Don tells him about Drew being newly single, Dennis tells his new son what he can do to his ex with Piper Rae and Courtney Cross!

After Denis, we get an in studio visit from comedian Greg Proops. Greg, who is performing at the Punchline in Sac tonight and Saturday, tells us about his podcast, the spontaneity of his live show, having to control his language around certain people, and his take on Jimmy Kimmel’s hatred for Jay Leno. It’s then Pornucopia time! Don plays us internet porn videos that are TV show parodies, including “Who’s The Boss?” “Beverly Hillbillies,” and “Big Bang Theory.” After the suggestion of a texter, the guys check out milkenema.com, leading do the barfing of Drew and Little Joe!

It’s then time for “Phantom News.” Today, Phantom tells us about a mid 60′s man who was killed by a falling refrigerator while getting a beer, the new GoDaddy.com Super Bowl model, the new Rachael Ray vs Guy Fieri show on Food Network, and the cable channel ratings for 2012. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
