I'm A Lumberjack And I'm OK
Funny what catches on early in the morning.. Pauly and Brooksie are gonna be at a lumberjack event later this week, and Wease starts talking about the stuff lumberjacks do like log rolling, chainsaw sculpting, etc... and how fun it'd be to watch... way more fun than golf or NASCAR. Wease and Billy confuse everyone else in the room by breaking into Monty Python's Lumberjack Song, which no one else on the show had heard of.
Tools With Sports
John brings up that many MLB teams played the Boston Red Sox theme song "Sweet Caroline" at their stadiums last night to show solidarity with Boston after the Marathon bombings... even Yankee Stadium played their arch enemie's song. Wease thinks it's funny that a big deal is being made out of The Yanks playing the Sox song like it's the North vs. the South during The Civil War.
The Mets got swept by the Rockies in a doubleheader yesterday in a freezing cold stadium. Billy is stunned to here NY lost the second game... they were winning 8-2 when he went to bed.
The Sabres play the Boston Bruins tonight, and even Wease thinks he might be rooting for Boston. Buffalo would look like schmucks if they win.
Also, "The Voice Of Football" Pat Summerall died yesterday at age 82.
We start Redneck News with this past weekend's NASCAR results, Kyle Busch winning the NRA 500 (with just a little teasing of how we don't get it). Some racing fans in the audience call to defend their favorite sport, and explain why it's fun. This winds up taking up the entire segment, and we never get to the Wayne County criminals, but here's a couple bonus stories.
Newark Village Police reported the arrest on Wednesday (4/10) of Lawrence Knight, age 31 of East Union Street in Newark for Misdemeanor Public Lewdness.
It is alleged that on March 21st at the Newark Public Librar, Knight exposed his penis to a female in a “lewd and provocative manner” and appeared to be masturbating.
Knight was released on an appearance ticket for Newark Village Court on May 1st.
State Police in Lyons reported the arrest on Wednesday (4/10B) at 12:15am of Barnaby May, age 18, of Hatch Road in the Town of Galen for Criminal Trespass in the 2Bnd Degree and Criminal Mischief in the 4th Degree.

Doug Emblidge News
Wease and Doug reminisce about Rochester's heyday when Kodak, Xerox. and Baush & Lomb were all booming, car sales went crazy every March thanks to the Kodak bonus, and everyone had "a guy" at B&L for free sunglasses.
A discussion of DVR ettiquette (do you cancel your chick's recording if you're watching something live?), shows that have jumped the shark, favorite shows of the Wease Show, and the fakeness of "reality" shows like "Parking Wars", "Lizard Lick Towing", and "Pawn Stars". Pauly is mad that Wease has given up on Zooey Deschanel's sitcom "New Girl"
This number seems REALLY high . . . or maybe I'm the only GOOD person left out there. Yeah, that's probably it.
According to a new survey, 57% of people admit they've INTENTIONALLY DAMAGED another car. They haven't smashed it, but they have scratched it a little.
And the number one reason people gave for intentionally scratching someone else's car was . . . JEALOUSY.
People also say they've intentionally scratched someone's car for parking too close to them . . . because they were NOISY NEIGHBORS . . . over a relationship . . . and even because they don't like the way the person LOOKS.
Pauly talks about how as a young punk kid he once egged a car, and another time he chucked rocks at a car, and now feels awful about it. A caller tells us how egg shells are like razors on car paint.
This leads to discussion of recycling, the environment, going green, etc... not quite sure how this lead us back to the topic of Wease's in studio farting and peeing, but it did.
"Stupidest Thing I've Ever Heard"
During our commercial break Marianne said something to Wease that he's calling "the stupidest thing I've ever heard". She said that she read how at one time in the olden days the original chainsaws were used to help with child birth. Who's right? Click HERE.
Actor/Comedian/Author Richard Belzer calls us to promote his new book "The Hit List" in which he and his co-author David Wayne examine and try to to uncover the truth about the many witness deaths tied to the JFK assassination. For decades, government pundits have dismissed these “coincidental” deaths, even regarding them as “myths” as “urban legends.”
Like most people, Richard and David were initially unsure about what to make of these ‘coincidences’. After all, events don’t “consult the odds” prior to happening; they simply happen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening were. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents. Others clearly seemed noteworthy; witnesses who did seem to know something and did seem to die mysteriously.
Richard also talks about the death of Marilyn Monroe, and all the weird things about that, saying she was murdered. Backing it up with medical facts. This is covered in his book "Dead Wrong"
An listener asks via email what Wease would suggest as a great high school graduation party. Marianne suggests whatever you do hire a street meat truck where folks can order their own hotdogs, burgers, etc... A caller named Jamie thinks a pig roast is a great idea... luckily Jamie caters pig roasts.
For Marianne... what's going on in this picture?
Marianne says she was pretending to be drunk at a birthday party for the picture. The ventriloquist dummy in the background is the dummy from the movie "Magic" with Anthony Hopkins, and a friend of hers was the owner of the puppet.
A listener named Stephanie asks how to handle a long distance relationship. She's just moved to Rochester for a job, and now her boyfriend is 5-6 hours away. They haven't been together long enough to talk about him moving in. What should she do? Wease gets the vibe she wants to dump him, so she should follow her insticts.
What does Wease think of the conspiracy theories surrounding the bombing at The Boston Marathon? He hasn't heard any that have sounded feasible to him yet.
A single father wants to know how to handle talking to his daughter about getting her first period. Wease says the guy should definitely sit down with her, tell her it's nothing to be embarrassed about, explain what's going on, and to Google other things he could say to her.
We're joined in studio by actress Reenah L. Golden, who's starring in the one woman show "No Child..." in which Reenah transforms into the teachers, students, parents, administrators and janitors who inhabit our schools and shape the future of America. Critics have said that it's an exuberant and devastatingly funny show about the collaborative power of the arts, and the influence one dynamic, determined teacher can have in altering the lives of her students.
Wease and Reenah discuss race, Bob Marley, improv, and Jesus. She admires Wease's collection of Jesus figures and bobbleheads, and the fact that he has black and Peurto Rican Jesus along with the white "Hall and Oates" Jesus that everyone knows.
Join us Thursday morning... we'll be breaking down this weekend's flicks with Marshall Fine, playing Geezers Vs. Douchebags, talking to one of our favorite comedians Adam Hunter, Tools and Doug with sports and news, plus much more. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
