FDGS 020 : The Week in Review : AC Wars

Fans of the Don Geronimo Show logoFDGS 020 : The Week in Review : AC Wars

Welcome to the Fans of the Don Geronimo Show, The Week in Review, May 6 – May 10, 2013.

As always, Don is able to fill up another 20 hours a week with must-hear radio.  Actually, it was more like 18 hours if you don’t count the hour we lost for that annoying air conditioning hum we heard on Tuesday, and the hour we lost on Thursday in exchange for must-hear morning baseball.

This week we had medical scares from both of the Joe’s:  Slow Joe on Monday with his potentially deadly “spider bite”, and Little Joe on Friday with his possible “heart attack.”  Luckily, both medical cases turned out minor in nature.  This is also the week of the official Craig and Paris breakup.  Poor Craig…maybe a trip to the Bunny Ranch is in order.  Speaking of romantic bummers, Drew’s girl Jodi Arias was found guilty of premeditated murder this week.

Don’s celebrity guests this week included Comedians Jen Kirkman, Dan Soder, and Jay Mohr.  And as always, in case you missed a show, listen to the podcast.   Enjoy…

Don’s Show Notes:

Today, Doni kicks off the week with a weekend recap, including the AC battle he had with Janet, and the annoying fat guy that sat behind him at Iron Man 3. We also hear that Slow Joe has what thinks is a spider bite he got on Saturday, and eventually leaves early to see the doctor. After hearing that Craig is now single, and in a really pissy mood today, we get a visit from Mariachi Tradicional, a Sacramento Mariachi band, and they perform in honor of Cinco De Mayo yesterday. We then hear that it’s “International Clitoris Week,” and then it’s time for the “Phantom News.” Today, Metallica Night at AT&T Park last Friday night, A Daytona Beach man strips naked in a 7 Eleven, and says he’s a monkey, and Iron Man 3 has the second highest opening of all time. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!

Don’s Show Notes:

Today on the show, Don’s mini road rage incident with a neighbor, Slow Joe’s spider bite was just an infected scrape, and the amazing story out of Cleveland, about the 3 women who were kidnapped and held captive for 10 years, and escaped yesterday. Then the AC unit goes haywire and begins buzzing loud and uncontrollably. As Don tries to keep the wheels from falling off, we see a video of a 12 year old who calls out a motorcycle cop for parking on the sidewalk, before engineer Bob shuts off the power to the AC, and the maintenance guy walks into the studio while the guys are on the air to fix it. It’s then time for the “Phantom News.” Among the stories today: Dr. Phil is suing Deadspin, and a new Joe Dirt movie is on the way. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!

Don’s Show Notes:

With the AC unit finally fixed, we hear the new Charles Ramsey auto tuned songs, and Don reads Craig Wilson’s final USA TODAY column, before Drew tells us he’s trying to kick his smoking habit, and we get a visit from comedian Jen Kirkman. The Rotating Random Phone Scan returns, and afterwards, Don reads us a list of the stuff our body produces each year, as well as a list of the “100 Most Trusted Celebrities,” according to Reader’s Digest. Today on the “Phantom News,” the series finale of “The Office” will be 75 minutes, last week’s TV ratings, and Paul McCartney plays Beatles songs that were never before performed live. And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!

Today, in this truncated episode, Jodi Arias was found guilty of murder 1 yesterday, and Drew is crushed. We also see a monkey who smokes cigarettes, hear a clip from radio legend Walt Shaw from 1966, get an in studio visit from comedian Dan Soder, and another Rotating Random Phone Scan. It’s then time for an abbreviated “Phantom News.” Today, Hillary Duff on the next 2 And A Half Men, Clay Aiken on “The Office” tonight, Charles Ramsey is a wife beater, and Snoop Dogg’s pimp bus.

Today, Little Joe thought he had a heart attack last night, Don’s Mother’s Day tribute, a website that allows you to mail excrement to people, a visit from comedian Jay Mohr, and a Detroit woman’s flip out on the government.

And of course, Don wraps everything up with a caller 100!
