Farewell LA Radio Studio
Executive Producer, Mike Stark decided this would be the day he would shut down the studio on his terms. The redevelopment of Ports O’Call Village in San Pedro, California will some day, make way for a new entertainment district called the San Pedro Public Market. Big mistake, but that’s another story. Today is a day of celebration. We also did a show!
In part 1, Manny the Movie Guy reviews Uncle Drew and Sicario: Day of the Soldado. He issues a surprising review of Uncle Drew. Phil wonders if this basketball movie is right up there with the all-time best. Kelly Bennett has health news. In this case, it’s a story of a woman with a worm under her skin, ON HER FACE!
Kelly J checks in to explain how she resisted letting her son play soccer. Jay Campadonia recalls the best story Phil ever told. Katie Elsasseur recounts how being on a podcast helped her comedy career progress.
Get a Job!
In Part 2, Intern Ricky reveals he was hired by a radio station, of was he? We’re so proud of him! Stew Herrera explains why he has a Lemmy Kilmister mustache. Gonzo Greg reports on a guy who brought a blow-up sex doll on a plane and then, uh, well, you know.
Delta Airlines recently singled out Pit Bulls and related breeds to ban from all flights. Ed Santos is father to an autistic daughter who’s had an Emotional Support Pit Bull since she was a toddler. Santos addresses Delta’s policy. Check out Pupcake the Pitbull Service Dog!
Los Angeles Radio favorite, Lisa May checks in to talk about what fun she had co-hosting the show days after she was let go from her 2-decade radio home. Phil asks her why at her new radio job she doesn’t get the respect she deserves! Listen to Lisa’s gracious answer. She’s the best!
Next Nancy Randal is the co-owner of a store that buys and sells LEGOs! She checks in to talk about this unique concept and why she and her female business partner are making history.
Former PHAF Producer, Brooke Peterson phones in from the east coast to reminisce about the week she joined the show in 2014. She can’t wait to get back and co-host the show again. Live from Honolulu, Chris Martin talks about getting wet on the show and becoming more of the man he is today because of his time in the studio. Phil also double-checks Chris’ relationship status, in case you wanted to know!
Ultimately this is a show of fun, comedy, great memories, information, and some tears. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
