F&B 2008 General Turkey Of The Year

Foster & The Blade 2008 General Turkey Of The Year

North Carolina's own John Edwards and...

Rielle Hunter!!

Congratulations you two! You deserved it!!

It was a close vote between:

John Edwards

  • Elliot Spitzer, who had to resign his Mayoral post because of a hooker
  • Geraldo Rivera for getting pummeled by waves during Hurricane Gustav during a live TV report
  • TV weatherman Bob Stokes for asking Tracy Andrews to "lick his swizzle stick" in the hallways of The Weather Channel

but what sent the John Edwards vote over the top was when we went back and listened to his guilty admission speech.

Well that did it.

We are so saddened!!

Interviews Gone Terribly Wrong

When things like this happen on the air live, and you're in front of your TV watching, it's not too fun, in's pretty uncomfortable. But it's always a gas after time has passed.

The Andrew Dice Clay CNN Interview. Wow.

Our 2nd Interview Gone Terribly Wrong:

These Australian TV fools had no idea what was in store for them. It was the morning "Sunrise" show.

(We'd post the youtube videos here but we just shouldn't. You just picture Mr. Curtis, our founder, and you go...."naaaaaaah".)

2008 Childrens Promise Chapel Hill Photos

Uncomfortable Moment of The day

This is Darius Rucker of Hootie & The Blowfish except it's now just Darius and he's a country singer. He did a very nice set at the hospital around 6:30 and we avoided him a little because we had just chosen "Hootie & The Blowfish" as our Bad Band Name of the Day a little earlier. We didn't know Hootie would show up and not that he heard it on the air but still...he walked right by us and we kind of just....avoided him. Salt & D had him on the air though. 2-1 they told him.

Another reminder.


There are things you won't want to see.

In other events for the F&B Show for Friday...we talked with Slash of Velvet Revolver and Guns N Roses and he now requests what we ask and don't ask in interviews.

Who remembers this killer tv ad with Slash from last year. It was for First Act guitars. Awesome stuff.

Mitch Mitchell

Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience died in Portland, Oregon last night. You talk about one of the best rock drummers ever.

We played "Fire" and "Manic Depression" and segued them station identifiers or talking in between...those two songs did a REAL good job of showcasing what this cat could do.

This guy is a good reason why rock is king.

RIP 1947-2008

It ended up being an informative discussion about other words you could use on the air instead of "ass" because that word could offend.

Disqualified submissions from the get-go from friends of the show:
  • rectum
  • sphincter
  • bunghole

(these words describe the hole, not the butt)

We like these:

  • can
  • bum bottoms (Spinal Tap)
  • but the best word of all is surely "ass"

And finally the poor misguided boy that was told a butt was called this by his grandmother:

show audio chime in: that's what my granny called it!

7 Ridiculous Ways To Die On A Golf Course: Pt2

A French golfer was so hacked off at missing three straight putts, he threw his entire bag into the lake and then he realized his keys were in the he jumped into the lake to get his bag and drowned. Supposedly he said "I'm going down for the keys but I'm leaving my clubs down there."

Maybe he didn't say that...but it makes a better story. Haha.

Update: Foster & The Blade Quote Of The Year Standings

  1. There's nothing funnier than strippers falling off the stage. Midgets and public urination is always funny, but not THAT funny."-Friend Of The Show

  2. "Would you like to lick my swizzle stick?"-Friend Of The Show Bob Stokes on the Weather Channel to a hottie anchor. He was fired for sexual harrassment, of course.

Josh Hamilton In The House

Josh Hamilton will be back in town for a while...he has a baseball camp and concert he is promoting this week-it was real good to see him again after a few years.

We told him how it was kind of cool to have someone that is almost as famous as Clay Aiken from Raleigh. Of course he snorted about that.
