We Interrupt This Program...
Sorry to get this mornings Rundown off to a rough start, but we had some technical difficulties this morning, and I spent most of the first segment on the phone with our I.T. guy trying to resolve the issue. Luckily the major problem was resolved. Unluckily, I'm not sure what to tell you about the show, but I did hear Pauly telling Tools and Marianne about some of his favorite TV shows like Hannibal, based on Hannibal Lechter, and Bates Motel, the origin story or Norman Bates and his mother from the classic Hitchcock film Psycho.
Road Rage/Wimmen's Is Crazy
Pauly tells about a road rage incident he had yesterday while driving down Monroe Avenue with his girlfriend Ryann when they were dangerously cutoff by a car full of young dudes. Pauly kept his cool, but his chick went ballistic... screaming, swearing, threatening the other car, telling Pauly to chase the punks down, etc... It wasn't just a quick thing, but an ongoing outburst. Since Pauly had his windows down, sun roof open, the other carmade a U Turn to head back at Pauly, possibly for a physical confrontation. Luckily for Pauly the kids only tailed them for a little while, and eventually went away, giving Googs and Ryann the finger and an F bomb. Ryann felt badly about possibly getting Pauly killed, and hopefully learned her lesson about road rage.
Listeners called to tell us stories of road rage, including a guy that was arrested even though he feels he was in the right... but doesn't everyone? One guy thinks 6'2", 280 lb. Pauly is a pussy for not confronting the dudes.
Marshall Fine Film Reviews
Iron Man 3 is the only major flick this week... The returning cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as Rhodey, Jon Favreau as Happy, and Paul Bettany as the voice of Jarvis.
Ben Kingsley plays the Mandarin, who comic fans know to be one of Iron Man's greatest enemies. In "Iron Man 3" he initially comes across as a modern-day terrorist.
Marshall thought the first Iron Man was very good, the second one not so much... #3 he says is better than number 2, but not as good as the original.
One of baseballs all time great hitters joins us on the phone to promote May 18th's Pepsi Max Field Of Dreams game at Frontier Field where legends like him, Reggie Jackson, and Ozzie Smith will be playing. Wade reminisces about the 33 inning game in played in Rochester as a member of the Pawtucket Red Sox. We also chat about the '86 World Series where he was a member of the losing Boston Red Sox, and the '96 Yankees team he was a member of that won the series.
Doug With News
Iliza Shlesinger and Dario Joseph
Joined in studio by comedians Iliza Shlesinger and Dario Joseph, performing at The Comedy Club this weekend.... Iliza's little dog is also here. Iliza talks about being on the road, her funny parents, joins Marianne in making fun of Tools' rock collection, and winds up scratching her dog's back with Marianne's fork. Eeewww.
Joined on the phone by Joel Hodson, the creator of Mystery Science Theater 3000, in Rochester tomorrow night for his one-man show "Riffing Myself" at The Dryden Theater. Billy is a HUGE fan of Joel's and turns into even more of a babbling mush-mouthed idiot than normal. Joel is nice enough to humor Billy and answer questions about MST3K's creation, the writing process, anecdotes, his standup career, and more. For info about Joel's show in Rochester, and to buy tickets click HERE.
Before Joel called show members were talking about moments in their lives they feel badly about. Pauly talks about being disrespectful to his parents as a kid, and the time his dad took him to a baseball game and all he did was complain. Billy wishes he could take back the last 10 minutes of his geeking out.
Rachel Vs. Spidey
Marvel Comics iconic webslinger has a new arch enemy... Channel 8's Rachel Barnhart. Many Rochestarian's are excited about the filming of the Spider-Man movie being filmed downtown, but not everyone. Rachel is giving a voice to people that are seeing the negative side of film being shot here. Is the economic impact really what is being portrayed? Are businesses being fairly compensated? Are RTS riders being endangered by the relocation of buses? Will this really bring more movies to Rochester. Rachel says Spider-Man is bringing excitement to town, but she just wants to point out the other side of it. Here is a quote from a listener email that disagrees with Ms. Barnhart...
"She always makes my blood boil when she does segments, she constantly spews her non progressive view that shows she doesn’t like any new ideas that can make Roc proud. Money doesn’t have to be everything, town pride has value also."
More Spider-Man Debate
A carryover from the previous segment with show members talking about how Rochestarians are being put out by the moviemakers. We get some calls from people working downtown being inconveienced.... but this is so cool...
With the revelation of the NBA's first out gay player a memo was released by ESPN, and made public by PTI host Tony Kornheiser...
Kornheiser told listeners that, for instance, employees are encouraged to use the word “gay” instead of “homosexual.”
“They say that ‘homosexuality’ or ‘homosexual’ is used and hurled at people who are gay as a slur,” Kornheiser explained, saying he was unaware of the issue but will use the network’s preferred word.
ESPN has also singled out the term “sexual preference,” saying it wants employees to use “sexual orientation” instead. Kornheiser said, “I completely understand and agree with this one, 100 percent.” The reasoning, he explained, is that “the mythology of being gay is strictly mythology, that people choose this. The position now — the science position now — is that you are born with this, so preference is not out there.”
Kornheiser also applauded Collins for his decision to come out, but suggested that the event isn’t “as landscape-changing as other people might think it is.”
“I personally think it took great courage to do this, but I also don’t think it’s Jackie Robinson,” he said.
We also wind up talking about offensive names and stereotypes in sports mascots... think the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians... especially the Indians mascot Chief Wahoo.
Kentucky Derby is this weekend joined by Todd Haight from Batavia Downs OTB who gives up tips on how to bet and what to bet on. If they were speaking a language I understand I'd pass them on to you... instead I recommend you go to Batavia Downs yourself and talk to the experts. I heard the number 5 in the conversation, so maybe you could bet that.
Wease is back from Florida, and he'll have Vacation Hell stories. Do ya really need more than that? Also, Tools back in his sports slot, Doug Emblidge with the news, and much more. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice... have a great weekend.
Thoughts For Thursday
John Ditullio still sitting in for Wease while Wease is on vacation in Fla.
Pauly, Brooksie and Billy all took a look at the downtown Spider-Man set this morning, seeing the various props, made up store fronts, crashed cars, etc... Strangely, Billy was the only one to wear a Spider-Man tshirt to take a pic with The Daily Bugle van. You'd think the idiot would at least comb his hair for the photo. He also mentions the Spidey and Batman boxers he wears to bed,leading to a discussion of who buys out socks and underwear for us.
We also ask Tools what he would do if he didn't have jobs in sports and broadcasting... he tells us he'd like to pursue a career in politics, or maybe own a coffee shop.
Ditullio goes into sports mode for a few minutes...
Amerks got bounced from the AHL playoffs last night against the Toronto Marlies.
Knicks lose to the Celtics.
Gay NBA player Jason Collins ex fiance Carolyn Moos does her first TV interview, with Piers Morgan...
A better video has Carolyn lifting weight in a bikini...
A Wisconsin church has canceled a speaking engagement by former Green Bay Packers safety LeRoy Butler because of his congratulatory tweet involving Jason Collins, the NBA player who announced Monday that he is gay.
Butler, known for his role in inventing the Lambeau Leap, tweeted: “Congrats to Jason Collins” and said he was informed by a church that he declined to identify that his speech about bullying was canceled. In a series of tweets, he wrote:
“Wow, I was scheduled to speak at a church in WI, and a member said that the pastor wants to cancel my event. I said ok why? Then I was told, because I said congrats to Jason Collins on Twitter. I said really? we have a contract, he said check the moral cause, FYI the fee was $8,500, then I was told if I removed the tweet, and apologize and ask god forgiveness, I can have the event. I said no, only god can judge.”
Butler declined to identify the denomination or location of the church when contacted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The Summer Of Julianne
A song by Maxine Nightengale with lyrics about "teasing" a guy leads to girls that have teased guys on the show. Pauly tells the story about a girl in Ohio that one summer banged all his friends, and at one point she was naked in his bed when she put on the brakes and left him hanging. Wah Wah Wah...
Doug With News
We get talking about what Doug looked like as a youth.. did he ever have a mullet? an afro? He's sort of like Bob Costas, and never seems to age. Here's Doug in 1985... 28 years ago.
Doug Emblidge is Rochester's Dorian Gray.
If you could erase a bad memory would you? A new study by Scottish scientists says there may be a way to erase bad memories... would you do this, or keep them believing that all of our experiences make us who we are? Pauly and Marianne tell us about experiences with therpists and taking antidepressants in their lives.
Here's an interesting dilemma: Would you be willing to get your company's logo TATTOOED on your body to get a MASSIVE RAISE?
There's a real estate company in New York City called Rapid Realty that's offering its employees that deal. Get our logo tattooed . . . and get a 15% RAISE.
There's no rule on how big the tattoo has to be, or where you have to put it on your body. As long as you get one, you get the raise.
Anthony Lolli is the owner of Rapid Realty. He says he got the idea from an employee who got the logo tattooed JUST out of loyalty. Anthony wanted to repay his loyalty, so he thought of the raise idea.
So far, FORTY of his employees have taken the deal, and gotten Rapid Realty tattoos. Anthony is also covering the cost of the tattoo itself.
Pauly says he's get a penis tattooed next to his mouth for a 15% raise. I'd definitely do it... I like Clear Channel's logo.
Amanda Ciavarri Reports On Devonte Lively Trial
We're joined in studio by WHEC Channel 10's Amanda Ciavarri, who is covering the trial of Devonte Lively, accused of killing Larie Butler and disposing her body in a swimming pool next to his grandmother's house. Amanda tells us about the emotional testimony in court from family members, pictures that are being used as evidence, and the amazing detective work done to find Larie's body.
We also talk about Amanda's family owning a karate dojo, her upbringing in Greece, and her current relationship status. Marianne is a little sad when Pauly refers to Amanda as "The Most Eligible Bachlorette In Rochester". Miss Sierk thought she had that title, but it was just taken away by the younger Rochesterian in the media.
We got turned on to Amanda's court coverage thru her Twitter feed, where she fascinating tweets yesterday. Follow her @WHEC_ACiavarri
Wease From Fla.
Our fearless leader calls in from his vacation in Florida where he's kind of sad... here in Rochester it's sunny and in the 70's, and the weather is terrible in The Sunshine State. Wease tells about some of his Vacation Hell, but saving most of his stories for when he's back in studio with us next week. He did tell us about dinner at a vegan resaurant with a big group of people, and not knowing going in that it was "Dog Night" in the restaurant, where customers brought their canines. He's been following the Spider-Man stuff thru Facebook and Twitter, and is a little sceptical on it being beneficial to Rochester.
Geezers Vs. Douchebags
Fear Of Fish
Marianne starts the set telling us she's catching up on her favorite TV show, "The Deadliest Catch", that follows the lives of commercial fishermen on their boats. John Ditullio is deathly afraid of the ocean, and the sea creatures that inhabit it. John's going to The Cape this summer and he says that he and his daughter won't be going into the ocean. John says he does go into Lake Ontario because their isn't anything scary in there... and here come the callers to tell us about eels, stuff with sharp teeth, and other terrors of the deep.
Big Friday show tomorrow to finish Wease vacation with Tools at the helm. Film critic Marshall Fine will tell us about Iron Man 3, comedian Iliza Shlesinger, baseball great Wade Boggs, and the comic genius behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 Joel Hodgson. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
May Day/Hump Day
First Day of May, and it's gonna be gorgeous out... mid 70's and sunny.... a perfect day for the Spider-Man people to be filming in Rochester. If you were on Twitter yesterday, or watching the local news, you couldn't escape the pictures and phone video of the car chase and smashed up police car. The filmmakers asked people not to take pics and video or what's going on, but we don't see a problem as long as Rochestarians aren't disrupting the filming. Billy and Susan went thru downtown on the way to the station this morning, and were excited to see Oscorp trucks, NYC buses and cabs, and other parts of the movie set.
Update On Gay NBA Player
If your significant other left you because it turned out they were gay how would you feel? We wouldn't feel great about it, but better than if they left us for another hetro relationship... if our partner turned out to be gay that means we have the wrong equiptment. This brings us to Jason Collins, the NBA player that came out as a homosexual...
JASON COLLINS dated a woman named CAROLYN MOOS for about EIGHT YEARS . . . and they even got engaged. But in 2009, he called the wedding off just a MONTH before it was set to go down.
Carolyn says she had NO IDEA that Jason was gay until this past weekend, when he gave her a heads-up that he was going to come out of the closet. He told her his homosexuality WAS the reason that he ended their relationship.
She was stunned, since she NEVER once suspected that he might be gay. Naturally, she's confused and possibly a little upset.
Carolyn says, quote, "I had to sit down. I was shocked. There's no words to really describe my reaction . . . But this does alleviate some of the pain . . .
"It's very emotional for me to have invested eight years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand . . . to be able to recover from that is not an easy process.
That being said, she still supports him. She adds, quote, "I care about [Jason] tremendously and only want the best for him. I want Jason to be happy for a lifetime and stay true to who he really is, inside and out."
Carolyn also played college ball at Stanford . . . and spent several seasons in the WNBA. She's now a personal trainer and "nutrition consultant." (Here are some pictures of her. She's pretty HOT.)
For more sexy pics of the lovely Carolyn go HERE
Police Chief Sheppard
It's time for our monthly visit from Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard. He tells us how the Spider-Man filming has affected his department. My question is if Spidey has helped fight crime in our city, or if there has been an influx of super-villans invading the area.
We also chat about the use of security cameras in the wake of the Boston bombing, how Rochester citizens have helped solve crimes with info they provided (and the importance of doing so), and some of the excuses people use to try and get out of speeding tickets....
A new survey asked drivers their favorite excuse for trying to get out of a ticket. And somehow, "I was speeding because my breasts are too big, see, take a look" didn't make the list.
Here are the 10 most common excuses. The survey did NOT ask how often they work . . .
1. I couldn't see the sign telling me not to do it . . . like a speed limit sign, or a no U-turn sign.
2. I'm lost and don't know the roads around here.
3. I didn't know it was broken . . . like a broken brake light or turn signal.
4. Everyone else was doing it.
5. I'm having an emergency . . . like spilling a hot drink on your lap.
6. I missed my turn or exit.
7. I had to go to the bathroom.
8. I didn't do anything dangerous.
9. I was on my way to an emergency . . . like to help someone who was sick or injured.
10. My GPS told me to do it.
Doug With News
Doug is curious how come no else is reporting on the big car crash involving police cars on Main St. in downtown Rochester. Find out how Spider-Man filming will affect you HERE
The Wizard Of Oz
The sports dbags in the studio are star struck to be joined on the phone by the greatest shortstop of alltime, The Wizard Of Oz, Ozzie Smith. Ozzie will be in Rochester on Saturday, May 18th participating in the PepsiMax Field Of Dreams Challenge at Frontier Field with other superstars like Reggie Jackson, Mike Scmidt, and Pedro Martinez.
Ozzie shares stories from his playing days, the trade that took him from San Diego to St. Louis, the toughest pitchers he faced (Fergie Jenkins, Seaver, Ryan, etc.), his thoughts on P.E.D.S (the fact no one was inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year is an indication that steroids were bad for the game), and what he thinks of current salaries because Ozzie was the first million dollar shortstop (the money still hasn't reached it's peak). Lots of interesting baseball talk. The one disappointing thing we find out is that we won't be seeing Ozzie doing his famous backflip... he realized around 2002 that his mind was willing, but his body not so much.
I missed how we wound up on the subject, but Ditullio tells us tales of his teenage days when he and his friends would play "Spin The Bottle" with chicks they knew, who were good kisser, who weren't, including a girl they called Dave Parker, after the baseball player nicknamed "The Cobra". This leads to us asking "how much tongue is too much?"
Ask Tools And Marianne
What celebrity do you like that everyone hates... what celeb do you hate that everyone likes? Hated celebs at least one of us like that others hate include the teacher on Dance Moms, Kanye West, and Kathy Griffin. Stars that everyone seems to like that at least on show member doesn't include Adele and Sandra Bullock.
What is the one album John and Billy would play for douche bags as their perfect examples of good music? Tools chooses U2 "Unforgettable Fire", "Born To Run" by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. To go the opposite direction Pauly would play Kanye West's first cd for us as his example of good music.
Has Marianne ever considered a career as a truck driver? This turns out to be an inside joke from someone from Marianne's high school... a counsellor once gave her this advice. She also tells us about the time a guy helped her cheat to pass a test. Her mom wound up giving the guy $20.
What is everyone's favorite app?
Marianne... Just learned about an app called waze, which will show you alternate routes to get places in case there are traffic jams, accidents, or Spider-Man in your way. She's also a fan of gifcam to turn files into GIFs
Pauly... Viggle (get prizes for watching TV) and Mixology (put in what alcohol and mixers you have available in your house, and they'll give you recipes for drinks you can make)
Brooksie... AppsGoneFree (everyday there are 4 or 5 apps you'd normally have to pay for, but for that day you can download them for free.
John... he thinks he has an app that can teach him how to speak Italian.
Billy's favorite app is the mozzarella sticks
Are You A Douche?
Thanks to CollegeHumor.com for supplying us with the 7 New Breed Of Douchebags...
Marianne's ex boyfriend Steve Burr stops by.. after the show they are going out to shoot some videop for "Discovering Rochester", a web project they are working on. They talk about places in Rochester, both fascinating and underwhelming, like the erector set outside our window in Manhattan Square Park.
It's too hard to describe the next conversation, so you'll have to check it out on The Brew's Podcast Page, but Marianne and Steve find out about Ditullio's hobby of going into the wood and looking for rocks in his yard. They think John is like a little boy who digs for turtles and goes rock hunting. Hilarious teasing ensues.
More Spidey News, the return of Geezers Vs. Douchebags, and update on Johnny's rocks, and much more are in store for a thrilling Thurday show, so join us then. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
Brooksie called in sick today, so we're a man down.
The filming of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starts in Rochester today, and as we were coming in today everything was being prepped along Main St. Excitement in our little big city. We think if Brooksie comes in tomorrow we should send him down there dressed in a Spidey costume asking people where he's supposed to be. Click HERE for all info regarding the filming, and how it affects your commute.
Big news in the world of sports... the first active athlete in one of the major team sports is gay. Wizards center Jason Collins came out yesterday. Read the whole story HERE.
Obviously, the biggest question about JASON COLLINScoming out is: How will the rest of the NBA react? Now, and down the road . . . as he signs with a new team, and has new teammates.
Well, the FIRST part is being answered. Since Jason's announcement hit the Internet, current and former NBA players have SHOWERED HIM WITH LOVE . . . pun intended . . . on Twitter. Here are some highlights:
KOBE BRYANT: "Proud of Jason Collins. Don't suffocate who you are because of the ignorance of others."
DWYANE WADE: "Jason Collins showed a lot of courage today, and I respect him for taking a stand and choosing to live in his truth. #NBAFamily."
STEVE NASH: "The time has come. Maximum respect."
JASON KIDD: "Jason's sexuality doesn't change the fact that he's a great friend and was a great teammate." (Kidd and Collins shared a locker room as teammates on the New Jersey Nets for seven years.)
KEVIN DURANT: "As NBA players, this is like a big group of guys, that's like a brotherhood. I support him."
METTA WORLD PEACE: "I've got gay friends, gay people who work for me. It's not like anything out of the norm."
PAU GASOL: "It's amazing to see such courage from Jason Collins . . . myself and the NBA family supports you, Jason!"
SHANE BATTIER: "I only want one thing out of my teammate: A commitment to winning. Whether he is straight, gay, black, white, from Earth, or from Mars is immaterial. Just help us win."
JOE SMITH: "It takes courage to make a statement like Jason Collins. Played with him in Atlanta, and wish him the best. Yessir."
KEVIN LOVE: "Happy for Jason Collins in his decision. A great teammate and friend. Thanks for helping me through my rookie season!! #ClassAct #Courage." (Jason played with him on the Minnesota Timberwolves, where Kevin still plays.)
TONY PARKER: "Really hope people RESPECT Jason Collins for his decision to come out. Just glad he can now relax and not be afraid to be who he is."
BRUCE BOWEN: "Really hope people RESPECT Jason Collins for his decision to come out. Just glad he can now relax and not be afraid to be who he is." (Yeah, he Tweeted the EXACT same thing that Tony Parker did. Hmm. PR firm?)
BRADLEY BEAL: "Proud of Jason Collins for expressing his feelings! Great teammate, mentor and better person!! #LiveYourLife!" !" (Bradley was one of guys Jason got to see naked in the Washington Wizards locker room this season.)
ZAZA PACHULIA: "Jason is one of the best teammates that I've ever had. He was a great presence in the locker room and an even better person. #NBAFamily." (Zaza experienced Jason's great locker room presence on the Atlanta Hawks.)
DAMIEN WILKINS: "Very proud of and happy for one of the coolest and most down to Earth guys I know: Jason Collins. #FWhatPPLThink." (Damien and Jason briefly shared a locker room in Atlanta, while playing together for the Hawks.)
RUDY GAY, the only other known "Gay" in the NBA: Quote, "Happy for my former teammate. A true American. 'Home of the free, because of the brave.'" (Rudy and Jason played together briefly on the Memphis Grizzlies.)
ROYCE WHITE: "As a firm supporter of the LGBT, of course I support and applaud Jason Collins' brave decision. Facing stigma head on, thank you. #BeWell."
MAGIC JOHNSON, who recently supported the coming out of his son: "I know Jason and his family well, and I support him 100%."
KENNETH FARIED, the Denver Nuggets star who recently revealed that he has lesbian moms: "Wow this is amazing . . . all smiles . . . so SO happy Jason Collins came out and announced he was openly gay. ALL SUPPORT OVER HERE. #AthleteAlly #LGBT."
MANU GINOBILI: "All my respect and support to Jason. Thanks to his courage, perhaps someday an athlete's sexual preference will be irrelevant. Congrats."
NICK VAN EXEL: "Shout out to my boy, Jason Collins. Stay strong and be blessed. Still going to whoop you on the golf course. LOL."
ROBIN LOPEZ: "Looked up to Jason Collins growin' up in L.A., [and he's] been the best role model from grade school to the NBA. Blessed to know him."
BARON DAVIS: "I'm so proud of my bro Jason Collins for being real. #FTheHaters."
TREVOR ARIZA: "Jason, much respect to you. It takes a strong dude to be the first. You're a hell of a professional, and a hell of a teammate." (Trevor was one of guys Jason played with on the Washington Wizards this season.)
Meanwhile, ANTAWN JAMISON told the paparazzi that HE supports Jason, and would be comfortable being his teammate . . . but he does say there ARE going to be some "close-minded" players who WON'T accept him. (Here's video.)
Jason had this to say in response: He Tweeted, quote, "All the support I have received today is truly inspirational. I knew that I was choosing the road less traveled but I'm not walking it alone . . .
"Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me through email, texts, calls, tweets, letters, and every other form of communication. #Support."
Not everyone was supportive of JASON COLLINS' coming out. NFL wide receiver MIKE WALLACE said he couldn't understand how any man could be into dudes with all the beautiful women out there . . . and ESPN analyst CHRIS BROUSSARD said Jason was, quote, "walking in open rebellion to God and Jesus Christ."
Lots of callers with opinions on this... and just like society in general, some yays and some nays.
The original call came in about two pigs running wild in the road on Old Lyons Road in the Town of Lyons on November 6, 2012. When State Troopers arrived, they found the pigs in the front yard at 7312 Old Lyons Road. The owner came out and claimed the pigs – but the strange odor the Troopers smelled had nothing to do with the swine. The two troopers smelled a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the residence. They immediately called for a search warrant.
When State Police Troopers and Investigators entered the trailer residence, they found an extensive marijuana growing operation and seized 261 plants at various sizes of growth, along with marijuana growing equipment. The homeowner, Daniel Safranec, age 27, was initially arrested, but the case – due to the quantity of marijuana and the overall operation – was turned over to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Federal Department of Drug Enforcement (DEA).
Following a thorough review of the initial charges, the DEA adopted the case. On Tuesday (4/23) DEA agents, along with the State Police went to Safranec’s residence to enforce the warrant for the Federal charge of Manufacture of 100 or More Marijuana Plants with the Intent to Distribute.
Once police arrived at the trailer/ residence, they were surprised to discover Safranec had just started all over in the marijuana growing business. They seized an additional 202 plants in various stages of growth and more marijuana-growing equipment. Safranec, who lives alone at the residence, was taken into custody and arraigned in Federal Court. More charges are pending.
Katrina Lorraine Tisdale dialed 911 and asked St. Petersburg cops to help her get back her last $50 that she handed over to a drug dealer, reports the Tampa Bay Times in St. Petersburg.
Tisdale, 47, was upset because she was now broke and in-between social security disability check, according to the report.
Cops helped her with an escort to jail.
This is Tisdale's 12th booking at the Pinellas County Jail, inmate records show.
Here's another winning combo: Malt liquor and guns.
A deputy responding to reports of gunfire found Michael Johnston, 44, along with another man at Gifford Docks in Vero Beach, reports Will Greenlee in his Off the Beat blog for TCPalm.com in Stuart.
Johnson allegedly stated he'd had eight drinks, including two cans of Colt 45, and he had been "drinking and shooting" at a glass bottle.
Then Johnston got into some deep doo-doo: As he spoke to the deputy he defecated in his trousers, the affidavit stated.
Shari Smith News
Shari filling in for Doug today....
What do you feel you couldn't go a day without? Some people like Tools say coffee, but the biggest addiction nowadays are phones. Do you call into any of these catagories?
1. You Have To Respond... Immediately
If unanswered texts or emails get your heart rate going, there's a good chance that your smartphone is adding stress to your life rather than making it easier. Constantly interrupting what you're doing -- whether it's writing a college essay or spending some quality time with your friends -- to check your phone might be an indication that your behavior has become compulsive. When you start getting anxious about your inbox, take a moment to step back and remind yourself that it's probably not as urgent as it seems. Sleeping with your phone away from your bed and keeping it in your backpack instead of your pocket during class can also gradually help to lessen your urge to be constantly checking for new messages.
2. You Have Phantom Cellphone Syndrome
You could’ve sworn you felt your phone vibrating in your back pocket, but when you took it out, you saw that nothing had happened. Phantom cellphone vibration syndrome is a real sign of technology addiction -- and it's more common than you might think. A study conducted at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne found that a whopping 89 percent of undergrads had experienced feeling nonexistent cellphone vibrations.
3. You Have A Bad Case Of FOMO
Are you constantly thinking about what everyone else is doing and all the things you might be missing out on at any given moment? Does scrolling through party photos and enthusiastic weekend updates on your News Feed make you feel sad or anxious? Well, there's a name for that: FOMO. It's not uncommon for social media and smartphone users to experience a "fear of missing out" when they're unable to get to their phones or when they're getting updates about all the exciting things that everyone in their social network is doing. The best way to combat FOMO is to step back and say no sometimes, and just take sometime to do whatever you want -- not what other people are doing or telling you to do.
4. You're Not Paying Attention To Your Friends & Family
We've all be there -- you're having dinner with friends or family with your phone sitting next to your plate, and instead of ignoring it, you turn your attention away from the conversation to respond to a text. While there's nothing wrong with picking up important calls or excusing yourself to answer messages when necessary -- but if you make a habit of giving only half your attention to the people you're with while the other half is busy checking Twitter, it might be time to rethink your phone habits. To avoid damaging your relationships, make a resolution to give your full attention to whoever you're with in person and save the screen time for later.
5. You Feel Restless When You're Away From Your Phone
If you experience withdrawal when you can't check your phone or respond to messages, you might have a technology addiction. Studies have found that turning off their phones can induce physical and mental withdrawal symptoms similar to those exhibited by drug addicts. If you feel yourself becoming nervous and antsy when you're away from your phone, take note of those feelings and find a coping mechanism -- taking deep breaths, going for a walk or exercising could help you get past the anxiety.
6. Poor Performance In School
If you're having an increasingly difficult time focusing in class and eagerly await the ringing of the bell so that you can check your phone and return that unanswered text, an Internet or smartphone addiction could be partially to blame for low grades. If the lure of your phone is too powerful for you to concentrate on homework, try downloading an app that blocks social media activity and online distractions.
Yesterday Marianne told us about a ghost she has seen a couple times for the past 25-30 years. We're joined in studio by psychic/medium Julie from Mystic Moon who tells us that the blonde guy with the baseball cap in Ms. Sierk's life is named Albert, and he is her spirit guide protecting Marianne from demonic forces and other bad things. It seems everyone has their own individual spirit guide whose only job it is to watch over you.
Julie tells us about how she discovered her mental gifts, and also talks about seeing Pauly's deceased grandmother in studio with us. She also tells us that the Oujia board isn't a toy, and shouldn't be used by anyone but a professional... someone better tell Parker Brothers to stop mass producing them in China.
Julie's magic pedulum has predicted that Marianne will meet her future husband in 3 months, he'll be a medical profession, a Scorpio, and his first name will begin with a J. We take calls from many listeners with callers for Julie... including 42 year old Julian working in the microbiology lab at RGH. Is love in the air?

Comedian Marc Maron joins us on the phone. Marc has the immensley popular "WTF Podcast", and is promoting his new book Attempting Normal, and his new sitcom "Maron" on IFC (debuting this Friday at 10pm). Marc talks about the stars he interviews on WTF, from Louis C.K. to Huey Lewis to Jerry Seinfeld. He also tells us stories from the road, how his career was at a lowpoint when he started WTF, his personal life, and how he came to star in the sitcom. Great guy, one of Marianne's heroes, and lots of fun to talk to.
According to a study by researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia, it doesn't matter to women whether a guy is clean-shaven or has a full beard.
The researchers asked people to rate four different types of facial hair: Clean-shaven, full beard, light stubble . . . which is five days without shaving . . . and heavy stubble, which is 10 days without shaving.
And according to women, men reach their peak level of attractiveness when they have HEAVY STUBBLE. So guys . . . when you want to look your best, don't shave for ten days.
Clean-shaven and full beard tied for second. And both men and women thought light stubble was the LEAST attractive . . . it's too patchy and uneven.
Both men and women also scored guys with full beards highest for masculinity, parenting ability, and health. Men also thought that full beards looked best in general, followed by heavy stubble.
Pauly has a hard time growing a beard, but we try talking Tools into it. He's not going with us though. Marianne thinks beards are sexy, but is creeped out by the goatee.
... And Now The Hair On Your Head
Today is apparently 'Hairstyle Appreciation Day.' Yep, that sounds legit. Why don't we all have the day off work?
Anyway, we've got the results here from a new survey that had men and women rank the other gender's sexiest and un-sexiest hair styles. Here's what they found.
Sexiest women's hairstyles: Men ranked the "down and straight" look as the sexiest look on a woman. "Down and curly" ranked second. A ponytail or an up-do tied for third. An up-do is when women wear their hair up, but not necessarily in a ponytail.
Un-sexiest women's hairstyles: Too greasy and dyed unnatural colors tied for the least sexy women's hairstyle. The half-shaved, half-long trend came in third, and the bun came in fourth.
Sexiest men's hairstyles: The "just out of bed" look came in first . . . but it has to be an INTENTIONAL just out of bed. Neatly combed hair came in second.
Un-sexiest men's hairstyles: Greasy hair was voted the least sexy men's hairstyle. Hair that's too unkempt came in second . . . which is why the "just out of bed" look needs a strategy. And hair that's "too perfect" came in third.
Tools likes girls in ballcaps..
Brother Wease is vacationing in sunny FLA this week, so John Ditullio is our guest host, joining Marianne, Pauly, Billy, and Brooksie for the next 5 days. John tells us about his weekend. laying floors, and going to see Top 40 star Macklemore (Thrift Shop) in concert at RIT last night, taking his 9 year old daughter. Johnny tells us feeling like the old lame white guy with Gemma on his shoulders, and having to talk to her about the naughty words used by the rapper.
Is it fair to break down the NFL draft, who did good and who did lousy? Tools says it takes at least a few years to determine stuff like that. The Bills are getting bad reviews from the "experts".
Billy is mad at his beloved Mets for the way they are handling ticket sales for the All Star Game at Citi Field... you have to buy ticket packages for the Mets, and the more expensive Mets package you buy the better All Star ticket you can buy.
Marianne had shows at The Comedy Club over the weekend attended by the members of the morning show. She tells us about the ups and downs she experienced this weekend with so many friends coming to see her.
Yankee fans are happy about this weekends sweep of the Blue Jays, and Pauly is pissed at the Indians.
Obama And Conan Comedy
The set starts off strangely with a caller heckling us, telling us how much we suck. We always wonder about the motivation of people like that... does it make their day, is he high fiving people around him, does he also call TV stations when a show he doesn't like is on?
We then talk about Saturday night's White House Correspondance dinner in which President Obama, and this years guest comedian Conan O'Brien tell jokes to the press and celebrity attendees. Great stuff.... Obama's delivery od material was excellent, but I guess that is his job.
President Obama's monologue...
and here's Conan... (note from Billy... the visual jokes about who'd play who in a TV show about the White House made me laugh until I couldn't breathe)
Doug With News
In a new survey, only 13% of women said they'd stop dating a guy if he used a coupon on a first date. We're thinking it's probably because of online dating: People are going on more dates, which can get expensive for guys who pay all the time . . . so women are more understanding about them saving a few bucks. Marianne tells us about a cheap boyfriend she had, where on their first date he used coupons at Blockbuster video, and then went home and made canned spaghetti and meatballs which they ate out of the pot... she talked herself into thinking it was romantic, like they were camping.
Tools and Pauly also tell about bad dates they've been on, times they didn't return the girls call, and also times they've been stood up. John wound up watching movies with a chick until 3 in the morning before she told him "this is as far as you'r gonna get".
John also tells us about the night he met his wife he was on a date, at a party with another woman... he told the woman to meet him back at her place and leave her door open, he'd be there after helping his buddy clean up. He never made it there.
Lingerie For Men
We're not sure ANY woman in the world would find this attractive . . . but there's a company in Australia that's selling LINGERIE FOR MEN. It's mostly pink, filled with lace and bows, and includes teddies, camisoles, thongs, negligees, and even padded man-bras. The company says they hope this changes the way men look at underwear.
We're all afraid of SOMETHING . . . I mean, if you didn't have ANY fears, I'd be afraid of YOU, because it probably means you're a sociopath.
According to a new study, at least HALF of us have a fear that's strong enough to be considered a SERIOUS PHOBIA.
The most common phobia is a FEAR OF HEIGHTS. That's followed by a fear of the dentist, fear of flying, and fear of spiders.
About a quarter of people with phobias say they don't want to admit it. About 10% say the phobia has affected their love life . . . and 7% say a phobia has cost them a JOB.
Pauly and John talk about not liking when snakes and reptiles would come up to the Wease Show. Marianne takes a different approach to the question... she's afraid of ghosts. Our new cohost checks around her car every morning not for carjackers, but for spirits from another dimension. She also talks about the ghost of a teenage boy wearing a baseball cap that she sees occasionally. We're gonna get a psychic or medium to investigate this for us. Marianne's ex-boyfriend, comedian Steve Burr, calls to tell us about the time she woke up screaming after seeing the blonde kid and made him run down the hall and he didn't know why.
Marianne asks the guys in the room (and the audience) about their thoughts on circumcision. Marianne is against it because based on studies she's read circumcision makes sex less pleasurable for guys when they're adults, and that it's cruel and painful for the a baby. A woman calls about the time she was with an uncircumsized dude, and the appearance grossed her out. Are guys that aren't cut going to lead a life where the appearance will be bad to them. We get jokes, serious calls, history lessons, and interesting debate on the subject.
John Ditullio is back tomorrow villing in for Wease, we'll have Redneck News, Doug Emblidge news, and hopefully a medium to investigate Marianne's ghost in the baseball cap.. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
Wease opens the show making fun of the Bills jersey Brooksie is wearing thinking that he's being a draft dbag, and that he's gonna change into his hockey jersey before going to the Sabres game tonight... lame lame lame. None of us saw the Bills draft QB E.J. Manuel.... Pauly, Billy, and Brooksie were asleep, Marianne didn't care, and Wease was out to dinner.
Wease then salutes a group of Rochester women in the news. To the tune of Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" ...
The Rochester Police Department conducted a prostitution detail in the Lyell Avenue area and arrested 20 women for prostitution.
Yolanda Chevere, 26 of Rochester
Carla Basnight, 43 of Rochester
Maybelle Smith, 29 of Rochester
Nicole Boston, 35 of Rochester
Prince Carter-Fagan, 28 of Rochester
Fresheba Wells, 24 of Rochester
Samantha Butler, 36 of Rochester
Angela Batten, 41 of Rochester
Brandy Flint, 32 of Rochester
Juanita Villaronga, 40 of Rochester
Raechell Gaddy, 35 of Rochester
Sandra McCloud, 56 of Rochester
Julie Hyde: Female, 37 of Rochester
Marjorie S. Markel, 45 of Rochester
Mariah Cozan, 30 of Spencerport
Jessica L. Townsend, 29 of Rochester
Kathleen Doty-McFarland, 40 of Rochester
Rebecca Henault, 28 of Rochester
Melanie A. Kirkpatrick, 42 of Irondequoit
Stephone Brooks, 21 of Rochester
See that last name? Is that a misspelling of "Stephanie"? Nope, that's a dude that dresses as a woman to sell knobbers, and anything else he can get away with selling, according to his aunt that calls in.
Tools With Sports
Obviously we discuss last night's draft... John likes the Bills pick, but we're disappointed to find out that Kevin Kolb will probably be the starter at the beginning of the season. Kolb will probably be hated by Buffalo fans now because everyone will want Manuel to play. The Bills have 2 picks in tonights second round. Pauly's Cleveland Browns picked the best name in football... Barkevious Mingo
We also talk about the various policies of major sports organizations if a team plane crashes.
If you're morbid, you might've wondered what would happen if a pro sports team was on a flight to a game . . . it CRASHED . . . and everyone on board DIED. Believe it or not, every pro sports league has a contingency plan for that.
The plans are all called DISASTER DRAFTS. They would let the franchise immediately rebuild by drafting players off other teams.
Major League Baseball: If at least five active members of a major league baseball team die or are dismembered, the team can draft players off other teams. Each other team has to make five players available, and can only lose one player at most.
The NFL: If a team loses less than 15 players, they don't get to draft . . . unless the quarterback is one of them. Then they get to poach two backup quarterbacks off other teams . . . but those QBs go BACK to their original teams after the season.
If a team loses more than 15 players, the commissioner can cancel their games for the season. They'd automatically get the first pick in the next college draft, and get to select bench players off the other teams.
The NBA: If five or more players die or are dismembered, the team will get to draft off other teams. Each team can only protect five players . . . so some pretty good players would be available.
The last crash involving a team killed the Russian Hockey Team.
This Week At The Comedy Club
Every week The Wease Show has the comedian performing that weekend in studio. This week is someone named Marianne Sierk. Pauly went to see our new coworker last night and laughed the entire time, and also learned something from her set... her first bit was about getting scammed by mechanic, which happened to Pauly just 5 hours earlier. He went in for a $30 oil change, and wound up spending $800 he doesn't have on tires he was pressured into buying. After hearing Marianne's jokes about the same situation he did some online research and realized he didn't really need anything more than the oil change he originally went in for.
Doug With News
We start the set by talking about Doug's friend Rochester Music Hall Of Famer Bat McGrath, and how occasionally Bat and Doug will play guitars together, Marianne plays fiddle, and Doug's sister plays standup bass and banjo... a new band may be forming. Doug says in college he learned you're supposed name your band after something you can see in the room you're in... Marianne has named the band "Black Jesus"
Also Wease gives tips on how to get hotel upgrades, and how to only pay your bills every other month... Remember, with the Wease Show if you miss a little you miss a lot.
Lindsay Chambers from NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is having a mile and a half charity walk on Saturday May 4th, and Wease is a local spokesperson having a daughter affected. Pauly is captaining a team that includes Billy, Brooksie, and a bunch of listeners. If you are interested in learning more go HERE, and if you'd like to walk with us email firstname.lastname@example.org
Arbor Day and Plastic Surgery
From this morning's joke sheet...
Today is Arbor Day . . . a day when people are supposed to plant trees:
. . . Arbor Day is my favorite holiday devoted to things that give me wood. And it will remain that way until there is a Channing Tatum Day.
. . . Arbor Day should have a mascot. You know, someone known for doing all they can to preserve wood. I nominate Hugh Hefner.
. . . Arbor Day is the one day a year it's okay to have sex with trees. Shhh. Let's see who falls for it.
. . . People who nurture trees are called "conservationists." People who cut down trees are called "lumberjacks." People who talk to trees are called "on acid."
. . . There's a children's book called, "The Giving Tree". It's about a tree that gives everything to a man over the course of its life until it winds up a sad worthless stump. It's hilarious.
. . . Native Americans once sold pine bark to settlers as food. Later they discovered a better way to make money off the white man called "roulette."
. . . The world's tallest tree is in California. Park rangers won't reveal the exact location to protect it from vandals. But you can still find it by a process called, "Looking for the tallest tree."
. . . At over 4,000 years old, California's Bristlecone pines are the oldest trees in the world. If only they could talk, I'm sure they would say, "Kill me."
Wease also winds up talking about celebrities that have had too much plastic surgery, like Cher and Joan Rivers...
We open the show by mentioning how US soccer star Hope Solo made the news for accidentally tweeting her phone number. That's news?? Really?? Wease and Pauly will give their phone numbers out to anyone... Pauly's is even on his personality page.
A new survey asked hiring managers the WORST things candidates can do during an interview. And the number one answer was . . . saying "I'm nervous." Here are the top five results . . .
1. Saying "I'm nervous." Wease (and the rest of us) don't really understand why this is bad.
2. Wearing inappropriate clothes. Wease says "wear what ya want... especially some good hippie clothes"
3. Not making eye contact.
4. Checking your phone. This one Wease agrees with... as he checks his phone.
5. Fidgeting and bad posture.
The survey also found the BEST thing you can do is be engaged in the interview and ask questions. They also want to see your personality . . . and get the feeling you're being authentic.
Pauly asks what a good reply is to the question "What do you consider a weakness of yours?" The hack answer is "I work too hard and care too much". Marianne says "I keep sleeping with my coworkers".

Today is a national holiday for John Ditullio and his disciples... NFL Draft Day. John will be broadcasting from The Stoneyard Pub in Brockport tonight during the draft. Delicious food at the Stoneyard, so he'll have to put the Manwich on hold. Wease makes fun of guys that will watch guys choose other guys, instead of watching real sports like NBA playoffs or baseball. Rumor has it the Bills will pick Florida State QB EJ Manuel, who none of us have ever heard of.
Cleveland Browns linebacker Quentin Groves was arrested for soliciting a prostitute who was actually an undercover cop. The police report says, quote, "He agreed to one hour of time for $100 and was told that anal would be an additional $20." Oh, and a box of MAGNUM CONDOMS was confiscated as evidence. Ya know Wease thinks this is crap... poor dude. Pauly is a huge Browns fan, and doesn't even know who he is. Here's his mugshot... where was it taken, the hotel he was busted in?
Because of our previous set talking about the Bills we bump with the Doug Flutie song by the band Moxy Fruvous, a Canadian group that has since broken up, but was one of Billy's favorites, and in Wease's studio a bunch of times and wrote a song for Flutie live on the air for us. Wease tells stories of both the music group, and the QB.
Yesterday morning, a 22-year-old Walmart employee named Foster M. Bills from Stony Creek, New York was arrested . . . for allegedly TURNING TRICKS in the store bathroom during his breaks.
The police believe Foster was a gay male prostitute who'd find clients on Craigslist. He'd have them come to the Walmart during his breaks, then get-it-on with them in the bathroom.
Eventually, some of the managers at the Walmart started suspecting this was happening and tipped off the police. They set up a sting and a cop posing as a client arranged a Walmart bathroom get-together with Foster.
He was arrested and charged with prostitution. He could get up to 90 days in jail.
Doug With News
We're joined on the phone by the greatest soccer player in the world, Rochester native Abby Wambach. She'll be with her team the Western New York Flash for their home opener this Saturday vs. The Boston Breakers. We talk to her about being on the verge of breaking the international goal record, playing on the World Cup and Olympic teams, the effects of the concussion she suffered last week, and the lack of time off between playing both team and international soccer. Wease and Abby also chat about Abby's sister Tracy, who Wease knows as a waitress at Black & Blue. Wease is mad at himself for forgetting to ask her about posing nude for ESPN: The Magazine.
Marianne is performing at The Comedy Club tonight and all weekend long, and Pauly is going tonight but his gf Ryann can't.. they're going away for the weekend and she has to pack. How long does it take women to pack? Wease says it takes Doreen a week.
Wease once again makes fun of people that watch the NFL Draft, but then admits that last night he watched poker on TV... a game he'd already seen twice before... so there's stuff everyone likes that other people think is weird.
There's been a big push over the past three decades or so to really emphasize to kids how UNIQUE and SPECIAL they are. Which leads to a rude awakening once they get older. But it's nice for childhood.
So how unique ARE YOU? We can't say for sure . . . but we DO have some stats here on how rare your different physical traits might be. Check 'em out . . .
8% of people have blue eyes.
2% are naturally blonde, and approximately 2% to 4% are naturally redheads.
11% have curly hair.
10% have a second toe that's longer than their big toe. It's called "Morton's Toe."
10% have outie belly buttons.
10% are left-handed.
20% have dimples.
75% can roll their tongue.
And finally, only one in 2000 have webbed toes. After some research we find out both Dan Ackroyd and Ashton Kutcher have webbed feet...
We're joined in studio by filmmaker Nick Dibella and actor Brandon Correa in to promote the new film King's Faith. Nick's brother is the genius behind the sub shops, so we talk to him a bit about that, and also Nick's first film "Rapture 505" featuring Wease as "Trash McCall". Wease and Nick tell stories of working on that film, and how it ruined Wease's enjoyment of sitcoms because he thinks he can see the actors reading.
King's Faith was filmed in Rochester, and is being released nationally tomorrow. You can go see it at Tinseltown or Regal Henrietta. The film stars Emmy Award winning actress Lynn Whitfield. Here is the film's description...
When eighteen-year-old Brendan King (Brandon Correa) attempts to leave his turbulent gang life behind him, his past continues to threaten his new-found faith, family, and future.
Leap Of Faith
More with Nick and Brandon talking about films, and how hard Nick has worked on this project and others like Cherry Crush. "Cherry Crush" was edgy with sex and nudity, so how did Nick wind up making a Christian faith based flick? Turns out Cherry Crush was on Showtime last night, and Nick wants his residual check.
Comedian Pam Wertz in studio... she'll be at The Comedy Club on Sunday night for her "Comedy With Curves" show. She tells us about how great her marriage is, but her love of Bon Jovi is still strong. We're stunned how popular Bon Jovi still is, and Wease tells the story of how he met the band when they were young.
Wease also talks about some medicine of the medicine he's taking, and how he knows nothing about it. Marianne is shocked... you should know what's going on with your medicine. Wease thinks the less he knows about the possible side effects the happier he is.
Friday shows are always extra fun and funny, and tomorrow will be no exception. Rochester Music Hall Of Famers Lou Gramm and Bat McGrath will be joining us, maybe Geezers vs. Dbags since we missed it today, comedy, info, breaking down the NFL Draft with Tools (and Wease making fun of it) and much more. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
Pauly was awoken from his nap yesterday afternoon to go jogging with his girlfriend, and he thinks it kept him awake longer than usual last night. Maybe it was the nap that kept him up.
A story about a dog that stayed by his owner as the man died led to a discussion of smart animals from TV shows like Lassie and Flipper. Wease seemed to remember an episode where Lassie needed Flipper's help, and the dog took a boat out to talk to the dolphin... we think Wease was high.
When previewing what's coming up on today's show Wease mentions a female racecar driver coming up. How would most dudes feel if their chick did stuff that was more manly than them? A caller brings up a woman named Christmas Abbott, a crossfit athlete that is now working on Michael Waltrip's pit crew.
A look at a video we'll be discussing later
Tools With Sports
Leave it to the Sabres to start playing good now, winning games that don't matter... the beat the Pittsburg Penguins last night.
The Knicks beat the Celtics last night, leading the playoff series 2-0. Are we allowed to root against Boston?
Tools nails another "This Day In History"... 46 years ago . . . in 1967 - In Game 5 of the Eastern Division championships, the Philadelphia 76ers, led by WILT CHAMBERLAIN, ended the Boston Celtics' EIGHT-YEAR run of consecutive NBA titles, beating them, 125-to-122. In honor of Wilt enjoy our favorite Adam Sandler bit.
We Love Meeses To Pieces
During the commercial break a listener sent Wease an mp3 of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club doing Wease's theme song "Let The Day Begin". Pauly misread something in the email that included the song, and thought it was by Modest Mouse. That lead us to talking about Danger Mouse the musician, Danger Mouse the cartoon character, Deadmau5 the DJ, and reggae singer Eek A Mouse. Here is the cover of The Call song that started all this (and has nothing to do with a mouse of any sort).

Nudist Deb Bowen
We speak to Deb Bowen, marketing director of Caliente Resorts in Tampa, a clothing optional (nudist) resort. We talk to Deb about the nudist lifestyle, the types of people that take vacations at the resort, Wease's love of being naked and nude beaches he's gone to. Should the morning show do a naked show? How come it's the ugly guys on the show that will have no problem getting naked, but Brooksie and Marianne are balking?
Finders Keepers Losers Weepers
A South Florida golf course employee is being commended for helping return $36,000 in cash to its rightful owner.
Police say Rachel Castillo found a bag full of money in January at Miami Beach Golf Course. She turned the money over to authorities, who found a name and address in the bag.
The 76-year-old man was no longer living at the address, but officials managed to track him to an assisted living facility.
Police verified that the money belonged to the man, who will get it all back.
If no one had claimed the money in 90 days, Castillo could have kept it.
Wease says he would've kept the cash because if someone has a bag of cash on the golf course they were just using it for gambling anyway. Marianne tells us about the time she was working at a martini bar and found 9 grand that the owners misplaced. She gave it back, and even they looked at her like she was a nut.
This leads to a discussion of martinis and whether people can really tell the difference between top shelf liquor and well alcohol. Wease says no, people can be tricked, and don't really know.
Does Wease have any comments about President Obama referring to Attorney General Kamala Harris as good looking? Wease thinks the controversy about it was created by people that would mutherhucker the president no matter what he says or does. Marianne says she thinks it was inappropriate.
I missed the next question while typing the previous answer, but do know the answer has Marianne listing her favorite drinks... Tangeray and Tonic, Bacardi and diet Coke, and a couple others. Wease tells Marianne about his tequila and red wine combo... she has named this drink "a problem".
That's as far as we get with Ask Wease in this segment... the boozers on the show are too busy talking about the drinks that have f'ed them up the most.
Bonus Content... Babes Of Baseball
Last week we were talking bad about NASCAR and a listener called saying his wife was a race car driver. Wease invited them up, and here they are... Matt and Serenity. Wease makes a lame "Serenity is a stripper name", but then decides it's a nice hippie name, and if he had another kid he might take it.
They tell us how they met when she was buying motor oil he'd never heard of from his dad's store, and how the dad wound up being one of her sponsors. She tells how there are times she winds up racing against her brother... sometimes she wins, sometimes he wins. Serenity also tells us about the pros and cons of being a female racer. Lots of questions from callers about her racing, including from a nudist racer that Wease wants to get naked. Wease says if he was ever going to sponsor a racer it'd be her. Cool chick.
We're back tomorrow to inform as well as entertain with the whole crew, John Ditullio, Doug Emblidge, and guests including soccer superstar Abby Wambach, filmmaker Nick Dibella, and we'll find out what Wease will do to blow off Geezers vs. Douchebags this week. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.
