PODCAST – Friday, February 26: Fun Fact Friday; The Week In Flubbles; Is Chaz In A McDonald’s Commercial?

The flubble montage. A collection of all the mistakes made for the week. A “flubble” is a combo of a flub and a mumble, which sometimes unintentionally creates a new word. (0:00)

Dumb Ass News – A pastor is spreading the spirit of the Lord, through his farts. Seriously. During the break, Chaz and AJ called Pat from CT Park Shame, who is able to fart on command, so he can “bless” them. (7:43)

The Tribe has been calling and emailing for weeks about a commercial they believe Chaz voiced. During Fun Fact Friday, Chaz debunked that, and re-enacted the spot to prove his point. It may have back-fired. (14:29)

More Fun Fact Friday, with calls from David Letterman, Matthew McConaughey, and John Travolta. (21:29)

Boss Keith’s Top 5 this week focused on the things that he thought Chaz and AJ could have done differently. Of course, that meant criticizing their choices for best movie endings, and how the score is calculated in a game. (33:26)

50 Years, 50 Albums: The Number Of The Beast

50 Years, 50 Albums: The Number Of The Beast

The third album from Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast was their breakthrough album in 1982 featuring new lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson. Released just a year after Killers, Beast showed the writing skills of Bruce and of course his vocal talents. Dickinson didn’t get the writing credits on the album due to his obligations with former band Samson, none the less it received critical and commercial success putting the band at the top of the early Heavy Metal scene so much so that radio stations at the time only played Maiden at night! Things have changed since 1982. At this time, we welcome Iron Maiden’s The Number of the Beast to the WPLR Hall of Fame.

How a very serious illness led to Mark Kaplowe’s love affair with radio. He entered the WPLR building on Chapel Street in 1975 and eventually became the afternoon drive host. He shares why he hoped Stoneman didn’t bounce off the wall twice, meeting Bono of U2, the moment Wiggy fired him and how he went on to become one of the most sought after voice over talents in America.

Brandon Dufour of The Next Street driving school was on to let the Tribe know they are looking to hire 40 driving instructors, and then gave Chaz and AJ a test to see if they might qualify. (0:00)

Jimmy Koplik from Live Nation was on with encouraging news about summer concerts in Connecticut, and to unveil the official name of Bridgeport’s amphitheater. Then the Tribe called in for stories from their favorite shows, including the time KISS blew out all the lights. (7:40)

Tina from the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk was on to talk about the new 4D movie theater, and Chaz and AJ tried to brainstorm some ideas for movies they could show. (29:21)
