really good story that I can't seem to remember?

Always a sign of a "good" story.

WHY DON'T YOU GET OFF MY BACK, FREDERICKS???

The June 30th show, around the 2:46 mark, a guy called in with a You Know Who You Look Like (a cross between Blair Underwood and Arsenio Hall - one of maybe three of these topic contributions that lent itself to an interesting exchange) AND a Going South story about driving 120mph across Indiana, getting pulled over, telling the cop his sister's sick (complete with her fake convulsing), then having to accept a police escort to a nearby hospital THEN getting the ticket.  Named by Tom as CALLER OF THE SHOW.

That man's name is Mike from Brooklyn, the same man who called in about the Jet magazine heist, and my nomination for Caller of the Year AND Rookie of the Year.

Oh, and thanks for making me put off actually getting some work done to research this crap.  GOOD DAY, SIR.

I liked it when Fredrick's said on the Mike and Therese (whose name continues to be difficult for me to spell!) "Shouldn't it be innocent unless proven guilty?"

That guy usually brings it - I'd forgotten his name (I'm terrible with names), but he has a very memorable voice. I seem to also remember him telling a story about a homeless guy asking if he was related to a certain woman, who in fact was the caller's mother or aunt or something, strictly based on appearance.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Yeah, that's Mike from Brooklyn ... @slapclap over on the crazy twitter!
Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

I just hope that Larry the Perv doesn't show up umpteen times tonight. I thought he was funny when he called maybe once back in the day. I guess the humor of his "character" only goes so far. Maybe some time in the meat locker will do him some good.

Other than that, the six hour show was awesome! Fortunately my job allows for me to listen to podcasts. A six hour best show definitely eats away the monotony.

What's Courtney Love's twitter name again?

Just googled, but her page is down.  Looks like Perez captured her tweets this morning, though.  I wonder if TBS could get Courtney Love.  Tom?

    "I will do MY job you kids runalong and find your own little jobs whne you can even THINK that you can play aROCK show for 3.5 hrs call me."

    "No, Yes but the chick from Goissip Girl and the verons girls arent actually playing ROCKMUSIC anyone takes seriousl.Itscrappy POP"

Fredericks:  You been to Ybor City?

Todd:  I have. I've been to the Cuban club there.

Fredericks:  Oh... I have, too.  Many times.  Dozens, literally.

Todd:  Let's hear about eleven of the times you've been there.

Tonight's show was excellent, but when Fredricks first called, and asked if he had to press one or two for Amy or Todd, and then paused while Tom said something, and hit a number on his phone had me cracking up. I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard.

Thank you fonpr.

Tom:  Is this one of your points or is this one of your side-points?

Julie:  No.
