I really would love to hear the Don and Mike show(s) leading
up to this. I hate hearing the one side from those queefs

call their show. I wonder if Mike knew Don was making the
This is actually the first segment of O&A for 5-23-02 - is the D&M show from that day (5/23) or the day after (5/24) posted anywhere? As I remember, Doni G really "pulled back the curtain" on both D&M and O&A in both of these shows - so much so that Ken and Jeremy ended up suspending both shows for a week, but slapped D&M with a "gag order" on O&A while O&A got to continue to bash D&M with impunity.
shit rolls down hill. Stern told CBS that no other CBS
jockeys were allowed to talk about him. O&A told CBS Don and
Mike couldn't talk about them. And Don and Mike told CBS that
Stan the Fan couldn't talk shit about them. Stan the Fan told
CBS nothing because they refused to accept his call.
I was in Louisville, Ky and was long separated from radio as a career and even longer from Don And Mike. I was in Cleveland visiting a friend who said that Opie and Anthony were on and he listened and liked them, but they were not as good as Don and Mike.
I listened a few times but couldn't get a groove on the boys. When they came to Sirius/XM I couldn't really get on the bandwagon. I don't know why, maybe because I was longing for Don and Mike.
Jim Norton however, was really funny. I was a big fan of his Chip Chipperson character so I can't say anything bad about O&A..but as far at Sirius/XM, it was Stern/Bubba/Ferrel and Ron and Fez. (Sirius listener since 2006, but 2008 when they merged, that was that.)
O&A had tons of success. For a long time in Cleveland, you couldn't drive for 10 minutes without seeing a WOW bumper sticker. BUT... D&M are Radio GODS. Paintyourbaldspot.com is the ANKH of the radio gods.
