By listener demand, I have agreed to upload our worst bit ever that we aired this morning. The UFC makes it's debut in Edmonton this weekend and with it, comes a terribly produced bit that we created YEEEARS ago. It's titled MMF "Mixed Martial Farts". Don't blame me for this, blame the listeners who heavily requested it.
Many a year when school would let out in June, the sounds of the Alice Cooper classic "School's Out" could be heard blasting from the speakers of a used Ford Capri. Well, when school returns to the household's daily routine in the fall, most parents couldn't be happier. I reworked Cooper's classic to reflect the feelings of overjoyed parents when school starts back up.
I came to a realization today. With the ramping up of aggressive rhetoric in the field of nuclear war, we're very much in need of the old-style public service announcement that prepares us for the potential of such events. Since we're lacking that medium, here's a look at one of those short films on that very topic from 1959.
I used to read the comics (or the funnies) in the newspaper every day. Now it's a a rarity to even come across a copy of today's daily print. SO: I thought i'd take up the torch and write my own comic that no one gets.
I wrote a terrible parody song to mark the occasion of Connor McDavid's blockbuster contract signing. Connor may be the only 20 year old capable of managing this amount of wealth, regardless, it's safe to say that a lot of 20 year olds might do some terrible things with this amount of dough.
The Friday Funzies Mega-Mix is played every Friday. I collect the sounds from the week that was. The listeners who called and the new stories that occurred are placed atop a music bed that fits the theme of the week. This week was an all Canadian mix. Everything involved in this Mega-Mix has a tie to Canada. I hope you enjoy and have a fantastic Canada Day long weekend.
Arizona Iced Tea is one of the only constants that a consumer can rely on in today's topsy-turvy world. Oil prices, bananas, sea-food, Taber corn, all rise and fall with the seasons and the economy. One of the only things that one can count on is the fact that if I saunter down the soda isle at my local food jobber, the Arizona Iced Tea will sit at the rock-steady price of 99 cents. The price sticker is built into the can. It's a beautiful thing. SO, When we heard from a listener that he stumbled across an Arizona Iced Tea display that had the disturbing price point of $1.29, we were obviously horrified. I've taken it upon myself to fight the good fight and create a boycott list for vendors and pop shoppes that egregiously take advantage of consumers that need their teal can fix. Please feel free to tweet at me @TheRealRyMy or contact the Better Business Bureau to report the offenders.
Jordan Eberle has been traded to the New York Islanders for Ryan Strome. I really like Eberle. Far be it from me to be critical of the Oiler brass who made the decision to trade the guy, though. The Chiarelli era management seems to know what they're doing, so, instead of debate the merit of what they've done, I'm choosing to take it as it is and simply reflect on Jordan Eberle's career as an Edmonton Oiler. I've dumped out a LOT of terrbile radio content that revolved around Ebs. There was of course the long running audio series, "Hall N' Ebs", then there was "Hunter N' Ebs", and of course allll of the god-awful parody songs. The one in particular that i'm sharing seems to sum up Eberle's Oiler run the best. It's titled "H.O.P.E." and as of today, "H.O.P.E." has officially died.
McCord and I talked about items from your bachelor days, that you somehow managed to keep even though your significant other hates them. McCord just bought a piece of street art that features a giant robot stalking a VW Jetta through a prairie landscape. We received a call from one gentleman who took this to the next level. He bought a piece of taxidermy from a garage sale, and it's a truly terrifying piece.
McCord came across an article online this week that stated that we, as a species, shower too often. once a day is apparently more than we really need to. McCord's a 2 shower a day kind of guy, I'll rock 3 showers a week (Cause I'm Gross). The Rock Doc, Dr. Spac straightens us out in this week's interview.
We're always very happy to receive insight into the sporting world from those who know it best, so with a warm welcome we often invite sports insider Kate "Beer"ness into the studio to give us the breakdown on the most pressing sports topics. On today's take, she breaks down the Stanley Cup winning Pittsburgh penguins' decisive game 6 victory.
