Show Page

Adam opens the show to a funny “he spells AFI with L” intro from Dawson and Lynch, Adam is teasing some fan interaction that was shared with him and he says they’re going to wait for a birthday and discuss it.

Matt Atchity is in studio for the first Rotten Tomatoes Game of 2017, Adam and BB immediately ask him how he wipes his ass after shitting, Matt is a stander as well and Adam mocks their gymnastic routine while quoting the band ‘Boston’ who told him to “take a look ahead” and plan for the future of pooping.

Adam is making a point about old people and how you need to prep your anus for being old and unable to wipe while standing, BB defends his butt wipe technique and then claims to have never taken a drunken shit, Adam explains the drunken poop is often the next morning during a hangover.


Gary has the listener poll and reveals he’s shocked that 37% stand while wiping and Adam is asking about women getting used to wiping while standing due to hovering, peeing outside and other specific circumstances.

Adam shares he started getting sick over the weekend and he says that he doesn’t count an illness unless someone misses work or calls in ill, to avoid doing something.

Adam is now talking about his wife and kids vomiting and crapping up the house, they’re all sick and his wife couldn’t even get to the bed as she was so physically sick.


Adam compares Lynette curled up on the foot rest of the bed to Jimmy Kimmel and his nausea while they were fishing at sea over a decade ago.

Adam says that Natalia walked into their bedroom to vomit, she wanted to talk to mommy and walked past her own bathroom and then ended up vomiting in front of them.

BB has a nice use of the “Number Two” drop from Dawson, Adam went out and took a hot yoga class, 6:15 pm on Friday night and he says there was nothing else one would rather not do while feeling sick.


Adam is talking about how soaked he got while doing his hot yoga session, he talks about the shirt fighting him while he tried to pull it off, he couldn’t defeat his sweat soaked shirt.

Adam brags his shirt was dripping in the bathroom and air dried, 3 days later it smells fine, wow!

Adam brings up ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and compliments the film and shares how he woke up shaking and sweating in the middle of the night, fully aware he got what the family was spreading.

Adam talks about how all that you want when you get sick is pity and concern, not mockery for getting ill, Adam didn’t want to even tell the family he was sick.


Adam says the illness never kicked in, he missed the middle part, Adam wonders if his immune system shit it out quicker than the rest of his family who couldn’t fight it.

BB asks Adam how he feels coming to work sick, while risking the possibility of infecting his coworkers, so BB wants Best Of or a repeat of December 2007? Drew is showing up early for their show so they might get him on mic or ask him if Adam’s theory holds any water.

Adam says that car sickness is a marker for delicate wiring and he prefaces it for Gina who gets carsick, she argues it was caused by Mike August and his insane driving.


Adam is talking about his immune system relative to that of Dr. Drew and Jimmy Kimmel, making points about Drew having the same hernia surgery Adam has and their wildly different reactions to it.

BB agrees with Adam and says he has an iron stomach himself, he’s never vomited due to booze nor chemo, holy shit!

Adam argues that most vomiting due to booze is self-induced, BB confirms Christie is the same way.


Q and Ace

1st Caller Tyson, he says he called before and Adam helped him leave his former flame and find this new gal who he’s having his first child with, he wants some name suggestions and Adam drops “Brexit” immediately, Adam asks his last name Romero and now really hammers it home.

Adam is riffing about the name Brexit Romero and how it’s a perfect action movie name, Adam jokes about solving it and BB says he’s looking forward to someone with that twitter username tomorrow.

Adam suggests Col. Duke Lacrosse Romero as a backup and they wrap up the call.


2nd Caller Brandon, he was the photographer for the live show in Austin and he mentions how he hung out with Gina after the show, he brings up the song ‘Possum Kingdom’ by The Toadies.

Adam talks about song names and if picking names that have little to with the lyrics end up shooting the bands in the foot, Adam says he likes the song and positively compares it to ‘Spacehog’ and Gian brags about introducing her beau Tim’s two youngest kids to John Hiatt last night.

Adam reveals one of the AFI band members is there but they’re going to wait for both to arrive.

Rotten or Fresh – The Rotten Tomatoes Game

Sigourney Weaver Movies Edition

Adam asks Matt about ‘A Monster Calls’ and they get into the game.

1st Movie ‘Alien’ (1979)

Adam immediately praises the long slow burn leading up to the first xenomorph, Adam argues that lone alien is far more terrifying than an endless fleet of disposable hordes.

BB and Gina both weigh in after Adam shares his guess, BB has a huge reaction to the low score and Adam has Gary name the critics who gave it low scores.

Matt schools him on one of the names and how it must be a bug in Rotten Tomatoes code or posting system as one of the guys named has been dead for more than a decade, Adam says good riddance.


2nd Movie ‘Ghostbusters II’ (1989)

Adam is trying to recall the overall reaction, he goes with 54% but BB and Gina both get it on the nose with 51% and Adam is pissed.


3rd Movie ‘Dave’ (1993)

Adam says this used to be a genre unto itself, the lookalike movie. BB saw it in the theater and can’t recall anything about it, Matt says it’s a great movie and Adam asks about the score and Matt insists that ‘Dave’ holds up.


4th Movie ‘The Village’ (2004)

BB liked the movie, Gina laughed out loud in the theater and Adam says he liked it. Adam was bumped by M. Knight didn’t shove himself in at the end as the Montana (Pennsylvania) park ranger.

Adam says he and BB both enjoyed it, Gina laughed and Matt reveals the score.


5th Movie ‘Avatar’ (2009)

BB asks if this is still the highest grossing film of all time, Gary confirms that it was 12 years after ‘Titanic’ and BB says James Cameron only makes good movies, he’s yet to make a bad film.

Gina has never seen it and Adam recommend she finally does.

Adam is still marveling at Dave’s 94% and Dawson has the winner, BB!

They wrap the game.


SimpliSafe – it’s 2017 and you can get $200 off their “Defender” security package edition.


Adam gives out the plugs and wraps up with Matt Atchity before they head to break.


They’re back from break with the guys from AFI, Davey Havok and Jade Puget making their ACS debuts to a great new music bed from their latest album, nice work Dawson!

AFI were legendary Loveline guests, despite being a band well before Adam’s tenure on Loveline they somehow never got booked until 2003, even with the Dexter Holland connection.

Adam and Dr. Drew loved the guys so much they were booked 3 times within 12 months, such a rare feat only David Alan Grier (DAG) and Bad Religion hold the same honor. Two of the greatest regular bookings in the show’s history and both “friends of the show” sadly much like many of the Loveline guests, including Bad Religion, Clive Barker and Will Arnett (3 in 13 months) AFI lost touch with Adam after Loveline and perhaps aren’t in Mike August’s wheelhouse/Rolodex/demographic, at least they’re here now!

Classic Loveline – MONDAY, MARCH 10, 2003 – GUEST: AFI • HOST: ADAM, DR. DREW

Classic Loveline – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2003 – GUEST: AFI • HOST: ADAM, DR. DREW

Classic Loveline – THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2004 – GUEST: AFI • HOST: ADAM, DR. DREW


Adam plugs their latest album and welcomes them to the show, Adam is now going over the email I sent him and jokes about me reminding him of things he should remember, how cool!

Adam mentions they used to bump in with AFI and the guys have another great reaction to that info as well, too bad they couldn’t have guested on the KLSX ACS.


Adam is asking them about where they hail from and where they now reside, BB jumps in asks them how they wipe after using the restroom and Davey says they’re not going there, jeez BB, know the room!

Now Adam is quickly digging the show out of the hole BB put them all in, Davey mentioned not being into backdoor stuff in the bedroom and Adam agrees, he says while he liked the enthusiasm and the effort he doesn’t want a digit up the butt nor does he want to ever experience anal sex, he’s not into it.

Davey agrees with Adam about loving the attitude and Adam has a great stranger picking up garbage in the street metaphor.


Adam is asking them about the roots and origin of the band dating back into 1991, Davey explains how they revived the band after a DJ was playing one of their old songs.

Adam is bringing up the role KROQ played for bands and asks them about playing live as a band to make money and Davey says they’ve always been a live band and focused on that as they didn’t get radio play until about 2003.

Adam is asking about bands like Phish that get huge crowds but don’t get radio play, Jade has a great point about burnout fans and ‘The Grateful Dead’ model for a band and its followers.


Adam is talking about the YouTube music stars and how the YouTube comedians are never funny, he mentions Jenna Marbles and how most of the content is pretty lightweight.

Adam asks the guys about their tour, Davey tells them about the bands they’re bringing.

Adam mixes up Everlast with ‘Everclear’ and Davey has a nice reaction without correcting Adam, BB comments on how he used to screen calls on Loveline and recalls a girl in tears who called into KROQ when they were playing AFI.

Davey responds to the fan reaction of their band exploding and he comments on how their success lined up with people not caring as much about how music was delivered to them, so they caught a bit of it but thankfully that died down rather quickly.


Adam is asking BB about working in the phone bank that faced the wall outside the Kevin and Bean studio, he confirms he was sitting their facing the wall.

Davey jokes about what BB must’ve done to face the wall, Adam is now recalling how he would tell the screeners to filter out the boring questions like how to lay down new carpeting.


Adam says he recalls they would play an STP song back in the day and then come back to his Mr. Birchum bit and he would be telling the screener to hang up and roll to the next one, to get some good material.

Adam shares how they would answer the calls and tell people which number they were for contests they actually do that, Gina confirms it.


Gina’s News

1st Story is on the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting and the assailant, Gina has the details and Adam says he wants to be part of the FBI team that shows up to shame the counselor that didn’t stop this guy from committing this mass murder.

Adam is on fire riffing up storm about the patient waiting outside, BB is playing the role of the therapist and they are crushing it.

Gina asks about guns as checked baggage and Adam says he wants a giant radiator, the size of the pentagon in the center of the country, we can just chain crazy people to it and move on, slop them a couple of times per day.


BB references the FBI “Nice Job” unit and Adam jokes about sending them to Chicago to talk to the parents of the kids who assaulted and kidnapped the mentally impaired young man, also in the news.

Adam is crushing it and liberally dropping “retard” all over the place, wow!


2nd Story is on Alec Baldwin’s trolling of Trump with the Red Hat with Russian writing for ‘Make America Great’ again and Adam shares his theory on Russians being the craziest white people.

Adam talks about post WWII science acquisitions and what led to the Cold War between The United States and Russia, Jade has some trivia and references Patton.


3rd Story is on Matt Oswalt’s (Patton’s brother, only mentioned per the Patton tidbit from the last story) tweet calling for and app that would read all of Donald Trump’s tweets in the voice of Mark Hamill’s ‘Joker’ from ‘Batman The Animated Series.’

Gina has the clip of Mark reading the first tweet in character, it’s great!

Adam says it will be more ironic when they get the non-evil cartoon character voices.


4th Story is on the Gender reassignment surgery for a convicted murderer, Adam jokes about explaining this notion to prisoners of bygone eras.

BB has a killer “you take their genitals away” reply as one of the inmates Adam time travels to visit and blow his mind.

Adam is now pitching ‘Trans Air’ a made-up movie that is a combination of ‘Con Air’ and ‘To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar’ and then he transitions to a point about unlimited funds for this kind of stuff while there is no cash for seatbelts on school busses.


Adam is being very fair and he thinks that if this woman can afford her own surgery, she should be allowed to get it behind bars, but not at tax payer expense.

Adam is now making a wise point about mental health in post-operative transgender patients and their mental health outcomes, often times the surgery doesn’t address the underlying issue, this is a real thing and important for him to bring up.

Adam is making some great points while not being rude, offensive nor even saying the convicted murdered can’t get the surgery, they just need to get it financed themselves so the daughter of the person they killed doesn’t end up paying taxes towards it, like in this case.


5th Story is a report on Porn Hub’s annual usage statistics, Gina teases the most commonly searched terms, BB has a funny guess and Gary guesses Stepsister, Gina reveals its Stepmom, which is only one word but she kept saying two and then hyphenated, Stepmother is even a single word.

Gary is on mic and has a great “how dare you” even though they are correct in mocking him for knowing this, Adam shares his old technique for screening VHS porn, he needed to see what was in the whole movie before deciding what to jizz too/at.

Davey is on mic and quite lively, sharing his take and Gina asks about what Adam needs from an adult film, Adam shares his take on Bang Bus style amateur productions.


Adam jokes about the celebrity sex tape and how people block the Tanya Harding tape from their memories, he says that must be the ultimate slap in the face when nobody is interested in seeing you fuck via leaked tapes, Adam had no interest in Tanya’s tape.

Jade has some wisdom about fake stolen sex tapes and Adam shares how naïve he was about this going on, he believed Pam and Tommy and refused to watch the tape for years after everyone else had forgotten about it and jizzed to it.

Gary is on mic again and brags about Ray J hammering about 20k per month off his “leaked” sex tape with Kim Kardashian and they’re now commenting on the crystal deodorant that was left in the studio, it has eyes on the case and Davey demands to know why.


Adam is sharing his “demand more from my deodorant” New Year’s Resolution with Davey who says the deodorant Crystal is not the best.


6th Story is on a man who is suing Starbucks for age discrimination after he hit on a 16-year-old employee the day prior and was told not to return by a cop.

Adam is now reacting to the guy’s hubris and has a funny “the part where you’re 39 and want to bang a hot 16-year-old I get it, I get it, I get it, I get it” that Davey seems to really enjoy.

Adam is saying he gets the desire but not the advertisement that you’re a creep, suffer in silence and don’t act on it nor tell people about it and demand acceptance for it.


Adam says the new part of life is getting the town crier to make proclamations about your desire to commit sex crimes.

Adam is telling the gang about taking his daughter to ‘The Paper Rabbit’ so she could buy some “squishies” things that resemble glazed donuts or cupcakes but nothing can be done with them.

Adam says the staff was super nice and they talked about hiring Natalia to work there, Adam wants to know why his daughter can’t intern at 10 or work for gift cards on the weekend for 2-3 hours helping out.


Adam brings up how he earned $20 for a used unicycle to buy off his buddy Dave, he would have hated it if someone deprived him from earning money by washing cars at his dad’s apartment complex when he was 9.

Adam wants to know why the government controls this and dictates what you do with your kids, why can’t we identify slave labor, sex work and abuses of children and separate that from what Adam is requesting, teaching your kid a good work ethic, the staff would love to have her come by and she would love to work there.

Gina wraps the news – 2017 standard edition


Adam is now telling people about the behind the scenes contractors they’re searching for his new show, Gary is on mic and they wrap up the episode with AFI who crushed it.

Adam plugs their album and thanks them for guesting, awesome!
