January and February
- Spaz quit his job at the radio station for an undisclosed reason, so he is now gone from Opie and Anthony and has been replaced by his protege Stinky.
- Stinky accidentally introduces the show as "January 4th, 2000." instead of January 4th, 2001.
- Opie and Anthony were almost fired during their vacation while a ton of other jocks were fired. The reason is not announced on the air and any mention of it is dumped out of.
- Apparently them almost being fired didn't have anything to do with the Voyeur Bus incident.
- Two teams Opie picked to win sports games lost, thus beginning the Sports Curse (TM)
- Black Earl came into the studio furious and shook the CD rack. When asked why, he couldn't provide a reason.
- Lady Di calls in. It's the first time I've heard her on the show but it's not her debut, apparently.
- Lady Di admits she has a crush on Anthony and is upset that he doesn't have a crush on her.
- Opie was furious with management and wasn't going to go on with the show, until Andrew "Dice" Clay contacted him privately and told him he has to go back on the air.
- Opie and Anthony decide they want to rename WNEW to "WONA." They research if these call letters are already taken, and they are by a radio station in Mississipi.
- Opie and Anthony call the woman who owns the radio station WONA and try to buy the call-letters off of her.
- Anthony: "WNEW are iconic call letters and they belong in Mississipi!"
- Two cousins were supposed to come onto the show and eat each other out for WWF tickets but they no-showed.
- Opie and Anthony are sending Stinky and Black Earl to Mississipi to give gifts to the woman who owns WONA.
- Wynona, Mississipi has no bars. Most of their stores aren't in business anymore and strip clubs don't allow women to enter as guests.
- Opie and Anthony are finally using Street Fighting Man.
- Rich Vos and Jim Norton laid in bed together masturbating with a girl in between them. Rich Vos insists that this isn't gay.
- When the guys arrived at Mississipi, the fan who drove them there dressed in full KKK attire. According to the woman, "he's lucky he wasn't shot by one of my neighbors."
- You cannot show the confederate flag in Mississipi. It's banned.
- Opie predicts that Stalker Patti will never have sex.
- Two hot girls shave Patti's nipples on the air. Then they do her chin, mustache and butthole.
- In discussion of football, Opie keeps referring to The Giants as "us" and "our." (aka "We totally beat them that year.") You're not on the team, sir.
- Opie and Anthony were going to get syndicated in Washington DC. They even played a "Best of" show on a station up there but it was pulled when Opie and Anthony upset management.
- Opie mentions The Islanders, and right after he says their name the coach of the team is struck in the face on television. The curse is getting worse.
- Lady Di and Marion came into the studio. It's noted that Lady Di is wearing leather pants and lingerie to impress Anthony.
- Lady Di says she's going to lose weight.
- During Sex for Sam, Psycho Mark let a couple have sex in the manager's office. He was immediately fired.
- Opie and Anthony have a one night show in Bostom on WBCN. It's being simulcast in New York City, but they're actually IN Boston.
- Opie and Anthony were given rooms at the hotel they were fired at when they said the mayor was dead.
- After the Voyeur Bus incident, Opie and Anthony said that police arrived at the studio to arrest them but they fled the studio before they arrived.
- Opie and Anthony say that the old radio station in Boston they used to work for has not contacted them since they were fired three years ago.
- The XFL pre-game show will have two hosts: Opie and Anthony.
- Opie tells a story about a crazy ex he had who, after she broke up with him and he moved on to a new girl, sent Opie 15 messages on his machine. The last message had her getting fucked by a new guy just to make Opie jealous even though she broke up with him. Opie apparently played these tapes on the radio back in the day and got in deep trouble.
I figured I'd take over the hindsight report here, since /u/CuckECheese understandably couldn't take listening to this shit anymore. This month wasn't easy, and I probably won't do another one of these for a while. If somebody else wants to take the torch, please, for the love of God, help me.
Opie introduced the story of how he went diving on vacation with Sandy and he got in an altercation with a scuba diver and threw a punch at him underwater. Hearing him describe this story made me embarrassed to be alive.
The show is soo high energy. There's something to be said for circa 2013 O&A, when they weren't easy to please. But boy these guys in 2001 sure get a good laugh out of everything. Especially Ant. He's just high on life, this guy. Whether it's a caller, some inside joke/show reference, or a good string of soundboard clips, these two radio hosts are giggling like a couple peas in a pod. Fuck whatever Opie said last year about Ant’s divorce in 1999 ending their friendship, these guys are the furthest thing from enemies and it shows.
It must have just been the style of the time, but I find it difficult to get through this. Maybe this type of radio at the time was fresh, new, and exciting. And to an extent, it still sounds more genuine and edgy than any show you’d hear on regular radio today, but their over the top giggling and "Oh boy we might get in trouble for this one!" attitude is so douchey .
There was a technical problem with one of their computers at the beginning of the April 10 show that made it so they couldn't use Napster. They spent the first 10 minutes of the show trying to figure out what a router is and what purpose it serves.
Ant recently moved to Bay Ridge
They make fun of a guy on staff for wearing UFO pants.
They're now making parody songs to celebrate WoW. Steve C made "The Boobs are Back in Town" a la Thin Lizzy. Ugh.
A commercial aired that was promoting the new Matt and Trey project "That's My Bush" on Comedy Central, a sitcom based on the presidency of George W. It would go off air a month later.
One of their sponsors is Cafe Java.
Club Soda Kenny can no longer work for Dice. Nobody is entirely sure why.
They've been interviewing all the contestants from Survivor the Australian Outback and they ask them sex related questions
A Norton clip was featured in a WNEW station promo. Jimmy says that the US government at the time was trying to genetically alter species of monkeys so they could glow in the dark (seems unlikely, maybe Jimmy was lying but needed it as a set up), and the promo featured Jimmy saying "the government is doing this so homeowners can identify where their televisions are disappearing to at 3 o'clock in the morning...this was a company-approved promo on regular radio.
They always allude to X or E. The kids are doing lots of ecstasy these days.
Opie is still, in fact, using the term 'patch' and 'taking a crunch' without a hint of irony
Aside from that though, Opie really isn't that bad. he’s still a chronic complainer when it comes to management, but he otherwise sounds like a different guy from today. Not sure where he turned into the jackass he is now, but very few of the crutches we attack him for today he has in 2001. It's almost as if his mental function has significantly deteriorated in the years since, because here he seems pretty coherent and engaged most of the time.
These guys are straight up having 17 year old girls in studio on a regular basis.
Opie got mad at KROCK for not letting Buckcherry interview with O&A. They send out the pests to call up and annoy KROCK. Opie says phrases such as "let's go, you wanna play? Let's do it. Let's take it street level" many times.
The boys say that Dane cook, an upstart comic, doesn't like them. So they won't ever have him on.
Tough guy Jeff Norris recounts the infamous story about how he got in a car accident and his gun flew upward onto the dash. The boys, who have gradually begun to think of Norris and his stupid Archie Bunker impression as completely hack, pick his story apart. It becomes obvious that he only called up because he is needy and just trying to get attention from two radio hosts that never have him on anymore. I think this is the point in which they pretty much excommunicated Jeff Norris from the show.
This was a very jam-packed month and was actually pretty good in comparison to the past several months of shock jockery. This post is a little long, so bear with me.
For the first time, O&A have gone meta. "Possum Kingdom" by Toadies was played as a rejoiner and the boys reminisce about how they used to hear that song a lot back at WAAF.
Opie said that about 20 years ago (1981) his grandma sued his mom. He's still bitter about it, and says he is glad she is dead.
Stinky rolled a joint for Rodney Dangerfield and they smoke on air. It's hard to tell, but I think you can hear Anthony coughing. Rodney says "This is good shit." Opie does not indulge.
Here is every Lewis Black appearance. Anthony: "Hey so there's a news story where a random guy did this silly thing..." Lewis Black: "HAS EVERYBODY GONE INSANEEEE?!"
Stalker Patty called in complaining that somebody on the Opie & Anthony message board photoshopped a picture of her beheaded on a train track, and it scared her. This perhaps marks the beginning of years of fan Photoshops, which I guess weren't a thing back then.
The Yankee/Red Sox rivalry is actually intense and not contrived. I guess the Sox are visiting the Bronx for the first series of the year, and they did a huge “Red Sox haven’t won the series since (historical event) happened” break with some callers.
Rich Vos is in studio, and he's hilarious. His stupidity isn't the butt of any jokes yet, and Opie actually treats him like a human being and a friend.
Vos is abrasive and shits on people's personalities at a deep level, in a way that the show would come to trademark and master over time. The O&A show in 2001 was somewhat edgy, I guess, but they didn't master the art of vicious roasting quite yet. They still sorta cared for people's feelings when the jokes hit too hard. Vos, however, is singlehandedly responsible for bringing a new type of savage comedy to the show.
Check out any of his fights with Jeff Norris. There's a few fights in which he savagely attacks the douchier aspects of Norris's stale 8 minutes of material. This is the perfect symbolic moment of O&A moving on from fairly hack comics to whom they'd too often give the benefit of the doubt when they bombed, to new guys like Vos who are downright hilarious off the cuff and who will call you out on anything.
Vos is able to articulate things that everybody else in the room was merely thinking. Maybe this is what people were talking about all along when they said the WNEW days were the best. Fucking hilarious. Oh, and by the way, the boys have now completely turned on Jeff Norris and openly mock him.
Miscellaneous ads and promos: shock local news story saying that your neighbors might be swingers, ad for Grounded for Life, Linkin Park's "One Step Closer" is a rejoiner (fawk yeah middle school)
Ant said he always stops by the local gas station whenever he sees high school girls doing car washes.
Opie thinks it's funny how tourists and non-New Yorkers still think 42nd St. is a terrible area and continue to avoid it like the plague. Anthony says 42nd St. is pretty much Disneyland these days. I guess using the phrase 'Disneyland' to describe Times Square was actually a clever, original observation back then.
May 7 - hilarious soundboard opening followed by their first ever discussion of "I hate this place, nothing works here, the medications don't work, I've been here for 7 yaaars" - check that show out, it's pretty good.
Movie break! Ant loved The Mummy Returns, Opie loved Memento, they think Pearl Harbor and The Fast and the Furious look awesome, and Jurassic Park 3 looks not so great.
O&A fire a truant intern over the phone after only three days of employment and tell him to say his last words. Opie says that some day it’ll be a trivia question for people to remember each fired staff member's last words, and Anthony says, “You mean like when Mark said ‘your mom’s box?'”
The O&A message board is mentioned, Opie says they kiss Anthony's ass a lot on there. Wackbag (possibly spelled Whackbag at the time) is mentioned as another competing fan site but nobody really posts there.
Anthony is getting sick of Jon Stewart because he’s losing his cool vibe and becoming sort of a snob. He says new guy Stephen Colbert is hilarious. Daily show staff writer Paul Mercurio makes his studio debut. He would eventually encourage a couple to do anal in St. Patrick's cathedral and you know the rest. Apparently Opie still hates him for that.
Robert Blake murder happens, everybody thinks he is so obviously guilty
Mick Foley's show debut. He was much less of a weirdo then.
Steve C has been getting criticism over the new layout of the website, and the criticism is kinda annoying Steve. Opie says, "On a daily basis Anthony and I get negative emails and negative calls but you can't let it get to you... We've been doing this a long time, we've heard it all." Ha. Just wait until you get breasts.
With 10 days to go in their contract, O&A start the show with a long rant about how the company treats them like shit and they might not be back on the radio again. Both of them insist this isn’t a work, and Opie is particularly adamant that he isn't going to stick around WNEW if he isn't compensated fairly.
They hated the season finale of The Sopranos.
The show's staff, as a 'supporting cast' of sorts, is boring in my opinion. Ben is boring, Steve C they don't make fun of yet, and Stinky is whatever. Psycho Mark got fired a few months ago but for some reason still hangs out in-studio every so often and just shrieks like a retard half the time.
Opie complains about EVERYTHING. The latest problem is that the promos for other shows on the channel are too long. He wants them under 30 seconds, not 40!
Lady Di and Marion call in to win tickets to an NSYNC show for Lady Di’s 10-year-old son. They haven’t changed one. fucking. bit. Marion talks about herself constantly, Ladi Di lies and re-asks questions to she can think of lies, she takes everything literally, she drives Anthony crazy (much to Opie’s amusement), and interrupts constantly. Ant and Opie also ask her to respond to the message board rumor that she lost her job and has a drinking problem, but she denies it and they move on. They then ask them embarrassing sexual questions. On the topic of anal, Lady Di says “no comment”
Keep in mind that Anthony Cumia is 40 years old during these broadcasts. In a kindergarten somewhere in New York, there is a 5-year-old student that will grow up into an alien-looking freak who ends up getting Ant sent to the clink for a weekend.
With zero days left on their contract - both Opie and Anthony haven’t signed a contract and they have no clue what is going to happen. Will they re-sign? Will they leave NYC??? Stay tuned!!!!!
After a week off the air, Opie and Anthony have a new 3-year contract and are syndicated to Philadelphia. WYSP flipped from music to all-talk, and O&A kicked off the first day of new programming. We are introduced to Tim Sabien, the Program Director of WYSP. He goes on the air to riff with the boys and say how excited they are to have them in Philadelphia.
Their first show is a bit of a regression toward cringey, because it's obvious they're trying to ingratiate themselves with a new market by pulling out all their Greatest Hits: taking fake callers who say O&A are the best, playing "Guess what's in my pants", playing the "Butt Plug" phone call, the "100 Grand" call, "Hi Mom, I'm in porn!", Gay Marco calls in to say how gay he is, the obnoxious Ol' Dirty is in studio, Keith the Cop is in studio, retarded Lavirne and Shirley say hi, Stephen Lynch is in studio to play some hack unfunny falsetto nonsense, Brother Joe in studio to play his song parodies (they were pretty okay, just dated).
I basically could've saved myself endless hours of frustration over the past several months by just listening to the first show of the month, because it basically condenses all over their douchey elements from 1998-2001 into a single 3-hour show.
Whenever Jimmy is in studio, he always seems to be going with this "Angry Jim" type persona. With the benefit of hindsight, I know how bad of an actor he is. It's obvious that his anger is just a schtick.
However, he is very, very funny and edgy off-the-cuff.
Budweiser sponsors the show now
The boys refer to the shows growing nationwide popularity as the "O&A Virus" for the first time
June 12, 2001 - The Motley Crue Challenge. Two fat chicks share a double dong and the first one to take it down to a dotted line wins money.
Opie's verbal crutches that have started in full this month: "ehh whatever", "eeeasy!" whenever a joke is told at his expense.
Ant's verbal crutches that have started appearing here and there: "allllright"
The boys seem to more or less dislike Don Imus. A guy named Sid on Imus said something racist and had to apologize on the air. On-air apologies where somewhat of a novelty back then, so it was fairly big news. The boys mock Imus and say that he is an old douche who is on oxygen and probably doesn't have much time left.
Opie loves playing the Hang-up Game, he’s now leaning on it three or four times a show for laughs.
June 12 - the debut of Twatto. Opie screams (he screams a lot for comedic effect, for some reason) and "pukes" after seeing it. He "pukes" very loudly and on-mic. A young lad Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in studio at the time, is mortified.
Ted Nugent is in studio to talk hunting, guns, etc. He actually sounds pretty well-reasoned.
There's still a select few very douchey elements of this show that just don't fit in with the recent improvements, but continue to stick around anyway. Stephen Lynch’s sing-songs are, in my opinion, absolutely unlistenable, but O&A seem to love it. Also, WOW continues to be promoted via song parodies such as “Whip ‘em out” instead of “Twist and Shout.” Terrible. Sometimes I feel like everybody on staff knows these songs are terrible, but nobody wanted to let such terrific production go to waste.
Jimmy is in studio a couple of days each week, although there’s no evidence that O&A are using him as a third mic yet. His contributions are minimal, aside from a few sharp one-liners.
Ant’s fear of sticky objects is becoming a recurring bit, as is Opie’s sports curse. Although the curse bit has been around in some form since, I think, WAAF.
O&A open their June 14 show to mark the 7-year anniversary of OJ being found guilty or something like that. They go down memory lane and can’t believe seven years have passed, and they say that OJ is basically the reason the two came to become the duo they now are. They talk about how they became friends, and then Opie wrecks the mood by saying, “And now you hate me.” But at least he laughs it off and says “Just kidding” - nowadays he’d just let it sit there while Anthony awkwardly moves on.
The term "taking a crunch" continues to unironically be used when referring to shitting.
Anthony's weird attraction to young girls is a recurring joke that comes up nearly every day, in fact he almost seems to relish in it and he is usually the one who brings it up! He announced in one show that it was Mary Kate and Ashley's 15th birthday and they were only three years away from "the big one." For as long as I can remember, he's been bringing up those two.
There's an NEW spot that advertises "Brother Wease at 10 - endorsed by Opie and Anthony!" What I found funny was how all the other shows that they like, The Sports Chick and Ron & Rez, don't get an "endorsed by o&a" stamp of approval during their promo spots. To be honest, my guess is that Opie pulled some strings to get the hack on WNEW, and the 'endorsement' during the promo was a way to quell the listeners who probably heard the terribleness of the show and said "What the hell is this shit?" I doubt Anthony ever listened to Wease, let alone endorsed his program.
They got a homeless guy named Ziggy from one of the shopping sprees to come in and they made him sing the national anthem. It was pretty cruel actually. But I'm sure they paid him thousands of dollars and were great friends with him behind the scenes.
Destiny's Child got booed mercilessly by 76ers fans during the NBA finals. It probably didn't help that they were obviously lip syncing and they were wearing Lakers jerseys. This was before Beyoncé became the most amazing, powerful, strong person to ever walk the earth. She was way thicker then, too.
Jay Mohr and O&A talked briefly to Richard Jeni for the first time, and Jay made fun of him for having very little material. Opie played the Hang-up Game on him repeatedly as he tried to plug a gig, utterly brutalizing him. Conclusion: Opie is responsible for this man's untimely death.
Opie actually said "I stand corrective" once.
They played tracks from STP's new album and shut off the faxes so they couldn't say they received any cease and desist letters from the label.
Richard Jeni comes in studio the next day and they leave him hanging out in the lobby and don’t let him come in for a solid 10 minutes. Once he’s in studio, Opie brutalizes him and it's definitely funny and uncomfortable. I think the whole Good Cop, Bad Cop routine they perfected only because Opie really did have big balls at times and Ant would get uncomfortable much easier. It was a good dynamic.
Stalker Patti touches Ron Jeremy's dick for U2 tickets. She works at McDonald's loading fries so she can't afford them otherwise.
Opie was at SUNY Geneseo for five years. All of his siblings are named after TV names - I guess one of his brothers Quinn is named after Quinn Martin. And he may have a brother named Elmo.
The boys also got syndicated to Chicago this month.
I can't tell you how many times Ant refers to hairy pussy as "Fidel
Castro eating a London broil." So many times. So, so many times.
One of the comedic topics that new comics bring in is always "the Internet." Like not even discussions on certain sites or web culture in general, just comedy that's like "so what is it with this internet thing?" Seems so strange how that generation literally couldn't comprehend it, and the mere existence of the internet was comedic fodder for them.
Even my grandparents in 2016 use it just fine these days. Hearing 35-year-old comics not understand it is just weird.
They refer to any photos they take and upload to their website as "digital pictures" for the fans to check out
I didn't consider this worth mentioning at first, but now it’s unavoidable. Apparently there’s a recurring bit that Anthony does where he pretends he’s Mike Tyson and he basically does a Tyson impression of him always punching women constantly. I guess this was like THE bit that Ant did back then, like there was nothing he did during the WNEW era that was as good as this. Everybody loved it. For me, I never really found it that funny, but I wasn’t sure if you WNEW-era folks liked it at the time. It’s okay, but I am not crazy about it.
At the beginning of one show, Anthony says he has to leave early to get to the Aerosmith show later that evening. Opie jokingly goes, "Jeez, I don't know if I can do a show by myself!" And here I am thinking that I might get to hear a younger and less insecure Opie from a bygone era get out there and riff for a couple of hours. But alas, he brings in Ron and Fez. It's good to hear what appears to be one of the first AFRO shows, but I was hoping to hear Opie alone for a while.
Everybody very openly mocks Fez for being, or at least behaving as if he were gay. He takes it in stride and rolls with the jokes, insisting he's straight. There's some absolutely hilarious ribbing from the June 20 show that's worth listening to as Fez comes up for excuses as to why the gay stuff littered around his apartment isn't gay at all.
Ant says he dispises Rudy Giuliani
Mario Cantone was the guy who did that "Stoned Cartman" impression. He is the most flamboyant man I have ever heard.
It's kinda weird hearing Opie and Anthony refer to Jimmy simply as "Norton" and basically use him as the shows sexually deviant stunt boy. On one show, they have a chick shoot ice cubes out of her ass and he spontaneously picked one up and threw it into his mouth.
By the end of the month they're now syndicated in Dallas and Cleveland.
June 25 - 0:03:00 into the show. It was Anthony, not Opie, who was the first one to propagate the alleged myth that O&A had things lined up at WNEW before they did the April Fools prank. I still blame Opie for running with it all these years, but let it be known where it started. By the end of the discussion, Opie dropped his “save the rest of this story for the book” line. God how many years has he been hinting about that fucking book.
Jimmy is definitely "Angry Jimmy" and his entire comedic routine consists of pedo and rape jokes.
Opie gets really defensive whenever callers mention Howard. And when they accuse the guys of imitating Howard, it bothers him immensely.
Opie elaborated on his "underwater scuba fight" story. When questioned on its authenticity, Opie insisted that the story is true, but he adds that the fight underwater was somewhat done jokingly, and he had been both swinging at the scuba instructor and laughing at the ridiculousness of the situation at the same time. He seemed to have redeemed himself by saying this, but then five minutes later he blew it when he claimed that both he and the scuba guy had to be separated once they got on the boat. So, they weren't joking around...?
Jim Breuer and his mom are in studio. She is 74 and completely coherent.
They had a bunch of MILFs in studio. Boring radio, any way you slice it. In the Sirius years, when the boys would reflect on the chicks they'd get in studio, they were looking back at that shit with some major rose-colored glasses. Sure it's cool to see chicks going down on each other, but I think O&A have this illusion that they used to have 9s and 10s in studio, as if there were chicks as hot as the ones you'd see in The Bachelor just running around naked. But the reality is that all of these chicks are pretty rough and tumble sluts. All this show had going for it was lenient FCC laws and a massive metropolitan area to pull slutty girls from. I don't think they were somehow magically reeling in beautiful women and persuading them to take a wiffle ball bat in their cunts. These chicks are all pretty haggard.
They wrap up the month with an interview with the son of Bob Crane, the guy from Hogan’s Heroes who was really into porn and ended up getting murdered or something. It was one of the least interesting exposés in recorded history for anybody under the age of 65.
On the June 29 show, occasional guest ODB says that Osama bin Laden is kinda gangsta. He and Ant agree that the guy can get his underlings to do pretty much anything.
After failing to perform anything funny or interesting during the June 29 show, Anthony proclaims that this is the last time Retarded Lavirne and Shirley will ever make an appearance on the Opie & Anthony show.
Overall a pretty good month, I enjoyed listening to these to pass the time. Not a terrible amount of douche chills.
Another packed month, so excuse the length of this post
After a wild weekend of partying, a picture of a drunk Keith the Cop wearing a g-string leaked onto FoundryMusic.com
Colin Quinn makes his debut appearance on the July 3 show. Unsurprisingly, he’s the same as he’s every been and is very funny. Worth hearing.
They have a couple of women come in to do live cat fighting. I forgot that cat fighting vids were a sort-of porn trend in the early ‘00s for some reason.
Movies that the boys hate: Tomb Raider, Fast and the Furious, Pooty Tang. Ant couldn't wait for Planet of the Apes, but both hated it when it came out.
Steve C sounding gayer than he ever has in his entire life during this "don't do drugs" PSA
Opie was talking about a mouse and he wanted to use the possessive plural form of the word, which we all know to be "mice's" ...he said meese's. He also said that their show isn't for everybody and is a "required taste."
Stalker Patty is now living in a hotel/hostel with an entire floor of tenants that she has to share a single bathroom with.
To my knowledge, July 6, 2001 is the first show that features Line of the Day, but they don't go back to it again for the rest of the month.
O&A had a roadshow at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park that attracted 4,000 people and resulted in lots of public nudity.
I'm convinced that John Valby and Doctor Steve are the same person.
Their voices sound exactly the same.
A girl called in to play "Guess what's in my pants", only to reveal that he was a guy pretending to be a girl. It was funny and it really showed how played out and awful that game has gotten.
Psycho Mark is suing the company to receive compensation for bits that he claimed to be either a part of or that he claimed to have created. Opie is angry, claiming that Mark wanted to try to get back on the show ever since he was fired. Mark had been appearing at live events and was calling into the show regularly like a needy douche that couldn't move on with his life, so apparently he began doubling down with this lawsuit. In a statement, he claims to have created the 55 gallon drum challenge, the Jay Mohr vs. Air Sick fight, the hot wax girl, and other extremely specific duties that really weren't bits as much as they were just things that are said over the airwaves during a radio show. Opie insinuates that Mark had sex with a lot of listeners he couldn't possibly have banged otherwise.
Brian Regan is in studio and he has plenty of prepared bits! It’s funny how whenever comedians come in studio, it's just a total “hang” as Opie likes to say. But with Regan, it’s pretty much a performance. Ant and Opie don’t seem to mind it at this point. In fact, Ant is totally in stitches despite probably being prompted off-air with how to set Brian up for his prepared bits.
They started a series of bits called Cripple Bouts, where people with various disabilities box each other in studio. I think the title and premise is meant to be more shocking than the bit itself. One legged boxing and blind boxing both weren't that compelling to listen to. The show has been great at pulling off visual bits, but this one fell flat.
The boys did an interview in Time magazine with Joel Stein, and Anthony is disappointed that Opie was quoted so many times and Anthony was only quoted once saying that "Mary Kate and Ashley Olson are hot." They get Joel on the phone and he singlehandedly makes the two of them look like whiny babies. Joel just lets their criticism roll off his back by acting casually, while these two self destruct. Especially Anthony, he's livid. The interview was during the
July 17 show and is worth hearing.
Rick Delgado bumbling like an idiot
During conversation, Opie jokingly said "Wait til we start fighting, it's gonna be great"
They interviewed a chick called Jackie Fine who was talking about some sort of sexual cream that increases libido. O&A made fun of her, played sound clips, and had callers phone in just to make fun of her. I think it was the first of their interviews with random people who were trying to hawk something, and it was hilarious.
Ant and Jim feed off each other's pedophilia jokes. It seems like 50% of the jokes from both of them are about fucking kids, although granted at least Jimmy makes it absurd by implying his experiences are with toddlers. Ant is always talking about adolescent teens and it's pretty creepy in retrospect.
Ant introduces to the show "mollirama.com", a website featuring young teen girls in provocative poses. He acts all, "This is terrible!" He's so appalled by it, more than everybody else. Then again, I mean, he was the one who brought it to the show...
Norton never just hangs out, I've noticed. Every single line he says has to be a joke. He's good at improvising but it's also kinda needy that he has to prove his worth at every opportunity and can't just participate in a discussion.
Opie had to stay at a dirty hotel in Times Square. And guess what guys, he slept naked! And he wore the same underwear today that he had on yesterday!! He really relishes telling people about his poor hygienic habits.
Ron and Fez intern Al Duke got drunk on air and started giving his assessment of other personalities at WNEW. He said Anthony gets along with everybody and is down to earth, but he thought Opie is a little standoffish and cocky. Opie immediately becomes indignant.
They love playing the “pull the strings!” soundclip from the Ed Wood movie
July 25 - the legendary Cindy Williams from Lavirne and Shirley interview. They introduce the interview to her as the first in their "Has-Been Corner" interview series. Very cringe, a classic must-listen O&A clip.
Opie, who constantly says that he doesn't really care about Howard or what he does, sure does get triggered every time a Stern caller phones in. One such instance, he dug into how Howard sucks for close to 30 minutes. It’s kinda funny hearing how furious Opie gets at the drop of a hat, while insisting how he doesn't care at all about Howard. Meanwhile, Ant sits in the background and interjects occasionally. It seems like this is 100% Opie’s fight.
Richard Cheese and Frank Caliendo in studio doing pretty much exactly what you'd expect them to.
Bud Light is a sponsor to the show and Ant is openly drinking beer most days of the week during the show.
They brought listeners in studio for a "who has the biggest man boobs" contest. Winner gets gynecomastic surgery. Opie was not in consideration for this particular contest.
Lady Di and Marion are hilarious. They haven't changed one bit. Di got a horrible haircut that they mock relentlessly.
They had a band in studio called Clutch that performed the song “Careful with that Mic” and my god was it fucking terrible.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's divorce was finalized after 6 months, which drives Anthony crazy since his divorce has been going on for 2.5 years.
Rich Vos is hands-down the best guest they have. Every time he's in the show becomes a roast and feels like classic O&A.
This was a short month for a couple of reasons. I think the boys went on vacation for a week or so at the end of the month, and I believe there were a couple of shows that aren't on the internet. Overall this was an okay month, but for the sake of doing these reports, there wasn't much to talk about from an 'archivist' perspective.
Sarah Silverman is in studio explaining a recent Asian joke she did on Conan that has caused a bit of controversy. It's amazing how she isn't groveling or giving in to special interests, she even repeated the joke on O&A.
The Ron & Fez promos (“Next time on a very special Ron & Fez…) are actually very well written and incredibly clever most of the time. They have a new one almost every day, and each promo is a little vignette that reads almost like a 3-pane comic strip.
Whenever anybody says a mild joke at Opie’s expense, Opie will go, “eeeeasyy….” Like, you better watch it or The Psycho is gonna lay into you hard, buster!
Sex for Sam 2: The boys host their second annual contest to see how many random iconic NYC locations couples can have sex in. It’s pretty fun to listen to, and it’s incredible to hear it unfold. The fact that there was absolutely zero legal supervision of this radio show proves that both the FCC didn’t care at the time and WNEW were willing to turn a blind eye as long as the show's ratings continued to dominate. Jim Koch from Sam Adams is in studio, Vos is supervising his own team but has a hard time following them around the city because his chain smoking leaves him short of breath.
Opie & Anthony have returned to the Boston airwaves for the first time since April ’98. They are now syndicated on WBCN, the rival station to WAAF. They consider it a major achievement and hold a huge grudge against WAAF (or at least Opie does). Both of them mock old WAAF host Rocko for still working there, defending Dave Douglas, and not being syndicated like they are. Anthony is particularly livid, saying that Rocko is a fat sellout who sold out his old radio partner Birdsey and kept doing a solo show without him after WAAF Birdsey go. Opie says that if that ever happened to O&A, they'd both go elsewhere together. In fact, I've never heard Ant so angry at another radio DJ. It's like how Opie gets mad at Howard - Ant really is pissed off at Rocko. (In later years, both Opie and Anthony looked back on Rocko with reverence, so it's weird that they're attacking him so hard here. I think Boston was still fresh in their mind at the time.) Ant even says "You're worthless, you're useless, you're gonna rot there, you're gonna die there." Rocco eventually died in 2012 at age 46.
The word must’ve got out in Boston that O&A have returned to the airwaves because guess who phones in - good ol’ Scorch! O&A immediately rag on the Kingdom of Nakedness and bring up the pizza-hamburger thing. He’s in Syracuse now and says, in no uncertain terms, that he is making “six figures,” so it's all good!
Bruce Mittman calls in to recount the old days at WAAF. The three of them seem to be on great terms.
When talking sex positions to a girl on the phone, Opie says he likes ‘backward cowgirl’
Johnny Knoxville and friends are leaving Jackass, and Knoxville says he would like to put the show behind him and pursue movies.
Bill O'Reilly interviewed them on his Fox News show. I looked for the video but can't find it, so if anybody has it please let me know.
Opie's girlfriend Sandy called to say that she caught Opie masturbating in bed the night before. He was jerking off to something on the TV despite the fact that she was sleeping next to him.
Stephanie McMahon got a boob job and it's a huge deal for the boys apparently. They question her on it, but it's not particularly interesting or scandalous. During the interview she mentions the recent battle with the World Wildlife Fund but dismisses it pretty quickly.
Scorch calls in again to tell everybody that he was the one who made Chyna who she is. He says he drove down to NYC just to get on the show, but the boys forgot about him and he was left hanging. He says it's all good as long as they get him in the next day, it's just that he couldn't afford to take a flight from Syracuse. So much for six figures.
During a brief discussion of dating young, Jay Mohr says "I figure my second wife is in 5th grade right now." I did the math, and Self
Cutting Girl was probably in kindergarten or so when this show aired.
Ant was 40 as of this show's airing.
Instead of saying something like, "Nice!" In response to something cool, Ant always goes "Rock!"
Needy Scorch in studio! Surprisingly, he kinda just hangs in the background and lets the boys do their thing. He seemed pretty cool actually.
There are reports of riots near the area where the boys had their previous shindig at the Stone Pony. People from Asbury Park call to defend the area and say that Asbury Park isn't that bad and is gonna get better soon.
Anthony’s obsession with teen girls just gets deeper and deeper. I can’t go a single show without hearing a Mary Kate & Ashley reference. One teen girl called in and Anthony interrogated her about how far she’s gotten with guys. Opie chimed in and asked if any guys had “reached patch” yet with her.
The two main message boards are the Opie and Anthony Message Board and Wackbag.
The Little Bronx Bombers are doing very well in the Little League World Series. A young Danny Almonte has been performing very well and it looks like they're going to represent the US.
Opie is beginning to use the word “the” unnecessarily. During a discussion of airlines, Opie says “I like the JetBlue! I flied it recently.” To which Jimmy immediately called out Opie on the fact that Opie said the word ‘flied’ instead of ‘flew.’ It’s cool to see Jimmy call out other guys on random grammatical errors, he’s definitely getting more confident in studio.
Suicidal caller Mark called to say he took 10 muscle relaxer pills and is drunk trying to kill himself, but he wants to talk to O&A before he dies. His girlfriend dumped him, so he decided to pull over on the side of the road and kill himself. O&A are able to pry some information out of him, including where he is parked, and before you know it a bunch of listeners and cops show up.
Mario Cantone is a pretty funny, flamboyantly gay guest. It’s too bad they never had him on much after WNEW, I wonder why. I really enjoy his Judy Garland impression, as weird as that sounds.
The show is pretty good, but I think what it really needs is a mass slaughter of 3,000 innocent civilians to stir things up. Hopefully next month delivers.
Forgive the length of this month’s posts, but I had to break them up into different sections. The past week or so has been “brrrutttall” listening to this show. This month has been listening to nothing but a 9/11-based show. It’s been listening to hours upon hours of a radio show where there are hundreds of callers and station personnel and recurring guests reacting to a tragedy none of them have experienced before. This has been the most unique month of these hindsight reports thus far, and it’s been very eye-opening to re-experience how the weeks after 9/11 unfolded, especially knowing what we know now. Very little “funny” going on this month. To start, here's the first part of the month:
Opie and Anthony are back on the air after a long two-week vacation.
Opie says he didn’t talk at all with Anthony since they were last on the air, although that was partly due to the fact that Opie was on vacation in Turkey and Istanbul. He saw Muslims there that made their women cover themselves in full black, and he was very surprised by that culture. The way he described it makes me think that fundamental Islam was a completely foreign concept to the US at the time. He saw a bunch of Muslims bent over in silent prayer in front of a shrine of sorts that held some strands of beard hair of Mohammed. Opie shouted out, “What’s the big deal?” to Sandy, because he's edgy that way. He also mentioned that he didn’t know what a bidet was, so he used the one in his hotel room as a foot-washer.
Ant watched Jerry Lewis’s muscular dystrophy telethon and said that Jerry Lewis is looking fat and Ed McMahon is looking old and can barely talk at this point. He jokingly gives McMahon a week left to live.
Scorch calls in again with nothing really to say. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that he is just trying to ingratiate himself with the boys now that their stock is on the rise after syndication. O&A just kinda humor him.
Lady Di and Marion take off work (at the beer bottling plant and ‘maintenance’ job, respectively) to go on the VMA red carpet. Marion’s horrible comebacks and Lady Di’s literal interpretation of everything is on full display, and it is hysterical. A must-listen, classic show. Lady Di and Marion are given instructions on what to ask celebrities as they stroll through the red carpet, and it's hysterical.
Opie apparently has a phobia of vacuums because, as a kid, his mom would obsessively vacuum his house and it used to scared the shit out of him.
Norton was at the VMAs too (probably to get celebrity photos), and he was pulling the "you dropped something" gag to all of the celebrities as they walked by.
It's kinda cool hearing O&A reflect on old shows, many of which were only a few years old at the time. During the September 10 show, they recount some hilarious Buddy Ebsen stories.
So there's been a fair amount of speculation as to when Opie and Anthony's relationship first started turning sour. From everything I've heard, they seemed to manage just fine in 1999-2000. I have noticed that Jim Norton's continued presense in studio throughout 2001 might be a sign that things are amiss, kind of like how, during the recording of the White Album, George Harrison brought Eric Clapton in studio to a) help with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and b) get the other Beatles to be mature and on their best behavior in front of a guest. This is probably what O&A did with Norton, and it's worked well. But 9/10/2001 here is the first time I've heard O&A have a bit of a spat on-air. It's very minor and they seem to move past it easily enough, but it's also telling of some of the tension that might be going on behind the scenes.
Opie and Anthony are both becoming openly hostile toward Ron & Fez producer Al Dukes. A few shows prior, he got drunk on-air again on R&F and broke Anthony's foosball table.
This month’s emerging or increasing verbal crutches: “ehhh whatever” by Opie, and “alllllright” by Anthony.
September 11, 2001 Show:
The 9/11 show begins in the afternoon with O&A simulcasting from a smaller station, WLIR, on Long Island. It's amazing having gone through the motions of listening to months of this show, the comedic guests, the recurring bits, the Horny Goat Weed ads, and then tuning into this show and hearing how all of that has been put on hold. It's a fascinating broadcast and I highly recommend you listen to it in its entirety.
The two are at their best - no fighting, no jokes, no Dice impressions, no Ant having a hard time dealing with his emotions. It’s them at their most real, no varnish. They both show incredible maturity, both are talking openly about their feelings during the entire ordeal, mainly because this is the first time something like this has happened that has unified the entire country into a state of shock (something far more difficult to do in the pre-social media era). Nowadays I guess people are jaded to these sorts of unifying events and are more willing to poke fun at it right off the bat.
Ant can actually be pretty clairvoyant at times. He said that this situation is so much worse than Oklahoma City, that we can't let the President and the government go through the usual 'rah rah' speeches only to have nothing done. He wants a fierce attack done now in response, before the visceral emotion of this day fades and before complacency ultimately leads to inaction. He often mentioned in later years how people's emotions during 9/11 had faded and people eventually took for granted the feeling they had on that day, and here he is almost preparing for that to happen.
Ant even pretty much spells out the basic concept of the Bush Doctrine when he describes how he thinks the US should retaliate: we should wage war on not just the perpetrators, but whichever country harbors them.
Anthony says that 9/11 now raises huge concerns for airlines, since airport security has been lax for as long as he can remember.
Ant says tactical nukes should be considered as an option going forward, and he continues to defend that sentiment over the coming weeks.
The show's callers are panicked, some suggesting that anybody with a long beard be wiped out. One caller said he was disgusted by CNN airing Palestinians cheering and handing out candy following the attacks.
Keith the Cop is down on ground zero helping.
Psycho Mark eyewitness report
“The one place I would give up my privacy is the goddamn airport.” - Anthony. Another guy says “they can strip search me if they want, I don’t care”
Lewis Black and O&A agree that there is no humor that can be derived from this, maybe 75 years from now.
WTC 7 collapses during the broadcast.
Although the motives and the perpetrators are still unknown, the US seems to have the gist of it. It's probably Osama bin Laden, it's probably Afghani terrorists. Half of the discussion on who committed these attacks is also geared toward Arafat and the Palestinians.
A guy called the show saying that his sister's boyfriend just got a job at Cantor Fitzgerald, an investment company that lost over 2/3 of its employees on 9/11. The caller was still waiting to hear from his sister's boyfriend and isn't sure what to do. Based on the caller's description of his brother in law, I did some detective work and found Raymond Rocha, Brown University class of '95. Unbeknownst to the caller and the boys in studio at the time, Raymond died in the attacks and was likely trapped with his coworkers on the 105th floor of the North Tower until the building collapsed. I went to the 9/11 Memorial after listening to this episode and laid some flowers at Raymond's nameplate. If anybody on this sub lives in New York City and would like to pay their respects to Raymond, he is located at the North Tower pool section N-44.
BREAKING: Due to the tragic events of September 11, Opie and Anthony announce on September 12 that this week's Whip 'em Out Wednesday has been canceled.
The boys are upset at the scripted nature of George Bush's speech the night of 9/11; they deem it far too stiff and lacking emotion.
Anthony doesn't want a memorial built at the World Trade Center, but rather a massive building that's larger than the old buildings. Over the course of the week, no less than five callers phone in saying that the new building should, in fact, be five buildings - with the middle building the tallest of all. Like a giant middle finger pointing at the Atlantic Ocean! ...
People are starting to call in talking about not just where they were when the planes hit, but their opinions on future military strikes. Some even call in claiming that Nostradamus predicted 9/11, and that the flight numbers have hidden messages when you add/subtract/multiply/do basically anything to them.
Although there hasn't been much cursing, the Sept. 11 - 14 shows have all been fully uncensored and un-dumped. A few callers phone in and says 'fuck' and 'shit' a few times but they let it go. One guy calls in crying about how his goddaughter's father died and how he is the one who has to explain to her how it happened. Surprisingly, Ant consoles him as best he can over the phone and doesn't shy away from telling the guy that it's okay to feel raw emotion. After the phone call, O&A decide to sign off with a moment of silence, which they continue to do for the rest of the week.
Jeff Norris left a message bawling and saying how much he loves and admires O&A, thanking them for how much they've helped his career.
There's a burning smell in the air that O&A describe as burning plastic and electronics.
There is a rumor that Whitney Houston died of a drug overdose, but her publicist has denied it. This is pretty much the first major bit of pop culture news to emerge following 9/11.
Anthony says it's really terrible to see Arab-Americans get treated poorly because of 9/11, especially since many of them came to America to escape the crazed Muslim ideologies of their home countries. Although the callers mostly cry out demanding that every "towelhead" be wiped out, O&A remain very civil. They even say that they can sometimes be twisted and try to make fun of everything, but they draw the line here.
Opie is incensed that other stations have resumed playing music. K-Rock allegedly played "Alive" by Pearl Jam and other songs deemed to be in poor taste. The boys have been 100% 9/11 talk since Tuesday and do not plan on even playing ads for the entire week. Four hours straight, four days in a row, of 9/11 talk.
By Friday, the country and NYC especially are filled with American flags everywhere. The mood is still grim and the effects of the attack are all encompassing. FDNY/NYPD and other volunteer contractors call into the show requesting food, water, helmets, dry socks, and anything else to assist rescue and cleanup efforts. Elsewhere in the city, certain film posters (Big Trouble, Spider-Man) are being pulled and the films' promotional schedules are postponed, since there are certain images of planes and New York City that might be unpleasant. The show begins shifting away from personal stories and phone calls of the tragedy toward commentary on how pop culture (i.e. WWF) and national figures (i.e. Queen Elizabeth) are reacting.
By the next week, Anthony notices that commerce is slowly returning to normal. There are still flags everywhere, but traffic on the highly is slowly returning to normal, the media now has the usual talking heads seeming skeptical of a future US invasion, and the French seem to have reservations about entering alongside the US in its certain military invasion. They even kinda start to rag on people who say the standard “I was supposed to be near the WTC that morning” when in reality the place they should have been was like, Houston Street at noon for lunch. After hearing this, Jimmy admits to being a “watery worm” because he had been telling people he normally does stand up at a cellar about 10 mins away from there.
Opie remarks that he and his brother noticed on a drive out of New York City that the Long Island parking garages, which were usually empty when they left after the show, were always packed. His brother and he conclude that this is because many of those drivers worked in the Twin Towers and their cars were left in the lots.
By the following week, Norton is back in studio, ad breaks are back, stingers are back, although the discussion is wholly dedicated to 9/11. Norton is pretty much just equal parts faux-edgy disgust for terrorists/the French and agreeing with whatever Anthony says.
O&A critique a list of songs that ClearChannel deemed inappropriate to play on the radio. They don’t make fun or mock it, they just look at the songs they deem silly to cease playing and the songs they think make sense (i.e "Smooth Criminal" by Alien Ant Farm should stay, "Jump" by Van Halen should go).
This shit is making the rounds on the internet.
The stock market tanked in the busiest trading day ever, but frequent caller Stockbroker Dave says this is a great buying opportunity, particularly for airline stocks.
O&A are grilling Hillary Clinton, who is probably in the middle of campaigning for something, for being cringey and phony and having no genuine emotion aside from pretending to get riled up to rally the public.
Ant has begun using his plan flute to make fun of songs
Ant said he flew first class a couple of months ago for the first time after they re-signed. Chances are, the two of them got fucking paid upon re-signing. Both hint at getting a really big paycheck.
Scorch is pretty much phoning in every few days at this point. After his proposed radio fundraiser to help provide food for the Ground Zero rescue dogs was mocked by both O&A and members of the NYPD, Scorch comes back on a few days later to announce a new bit: Douche or Dressing. He is summarily ridiculed and, as usual, wraps up the break thinking the boys are just giving him a gentle ribbing like guys do.
The boys were really touched by David Letterman's monologue.
Aside from Dave, they do think that, a week later, the saccharine sentiments of the moment are getting to be a bit too much. They play a bunch of hokey tribute songs and poems that washed up artists have been put out in the past few days. Some tribute songs are so hacky that the boys are able to pause the song and predict what rhymes they'll say next. It is revealed that some of these songs are produced by PrepBurger, a service that sells pre-packaged radio bits. O&A have never heard of this service before but immediately deem it as horrible.
Apparently things behind the scenes with Psycho Mark have been settled out of court, because now he’s back on the phone during nearly every single show.
Anthony does a bit that directly makes fun of Opie’s stinginess.
Apparently it’s a recurring joke that Opie always gets testy whenever it’s his turn to shell out money for the group’s morning coffee or dinner out. Anthony describes these scenario as him asking Opie for change to pay for the coffee, and then Ant plays the Godzilla sound effect to represent how Opie reacts (apparently he immediately flips his shit every time people ask him to pay up). Listening to Anthony directly mock Opie like that actually made me get anxious in fear of Greggshells, but he kinda took it fairly well. He always says, "Eeeeasy!" whenever somebody teases him, almost like "Careful buster - or you just watch what I'll do next!"
During sports talk, the boys laugh at how terrible Armando Benitez is, comment on how the Yankees are only a couple of games away from clinching the division, and Opie quickly teases Ben because his Patriots are 0-2. Also one of the shining stars of the Islanders is a guy named Mike Peca, and it's just funny to hear Opie say 'peckah'
Opie was laughing at how Jimmy always pulls out his dick whenever everybody goes to a live event at a bar or something, and Opie goes, “And you don’t even drink! Imagine what you’d be like if you drank?” Jimmy jokingly laughs and says, “Well…there’s a reason I’m wearing long sleeves in the middle of fall” alluding to the fact that he has visible cutting scars.
MBTA officials in Boston are now pulling Opie and Anthony WOW advertisements because they are deemed offensive.
This photo is making the rounds via email chains and nobody in studio believes it to be real.
Ant is ranting pretty regularly about how frustrating it is that the US has yet to launch a military action against the perpetrators, and he is especially mad that all the US has really done is "freeze assets" from known terrorist organizations. There is definitely a huge shift from high-energy, impression master, "happy to be here" Anthony to the Angry Anthony that we got to know by the end of the Sirius/XM days. I'm not going to try to connect the dots are make a convenient, pinpoint period of time where Ant's emotional shift began, but I will say that 9/11 has had a signifiacnt impact on his mood for the end of this month. He is much more prone to extended rants, which are things that Opie had only done up to this point. And most of Opie's rants were industry-related radio wars. Curious to see how that develops going forward.
Opie says he has never been with a black girl before. This contradicts previous and future statements that he has been with a black girl, so I guess he's just gonna keep flipping on that for the next 13 years of radio.
