Drew is now bringing up their classic riff about the pitches for classic T.V. Shows of the 1960’s, Adam is being fair and defending “Hogan’s Heroes” and Drew is bringing up the failed show put on by the BBC in 1990 “Heil Honey I’m Home” a failed Hitler themed sitcom.

1st Caller Spencer, he has been listening to the podcast I host Classic Loveline and wants to know if Drew ever regretted bringing Adam onto Loveline, he asks his question in an almost insulting way calling Adam immature, but he seems to be a real fan.

Drew says history reflects kindly on his decision and Adam agrees/reminds him of that as he says it.

Adam and Drew are both amazed that a fan base is still so dedicated to these classic episodes and still actually listen to them, it only took 15yrs of work for me to inadvertently pressure the podcast into being.

Turns out Superfan Giovanni was right, huh.


Adam and Drew both say they almost now want to go back and listen to the episodes and Spencer wonders where some of these callers are, Adam says it would be a great documentary to track down these old callers but he’ll never make it, good because I am!
