Adam opens the show to a funny Subway intro, Adam is talking about the upcoming live shows in Las Vegas and they start talking about the possible ‘Gronk’ cameo at the Mangria pool party.

Gina’s heart is broken she missed the show with Mark Duplass, BB plays a clip of him as the #TopDrop and he asks Gina about a week of morning radio hosting, she filled in and took the lead.

Adam is saying that Radio is mostly about reps and the invisible work you do, he says never discount the invisible part of life, unlike flying a plane or lifting weights radio airtime is the same, it’s just not visible.


Adam, Gina and BB are all riffing and go on some light tangents, Adam has some funny one liners, and Adam teases the upcoming guest Kevin Durand, acting legend.

Adam is telling BB and Gina about his time at the kabob place and how the music was pumping, he recorded the sound from the speaker and has a photo of the elderly gent at the counter, far removed from this music demographic.

Adam is offering up some possibly superior music choices, BB says this kabob place is trying to assimilate, trying to rub it in.

Adam is now having Nate join them on mic to explain how many times he’s asked them to turn it down.


Adam doesn’t want any stats about people drinking or eating more when they’re annoyed, Adam has Nate wrap it up and tells him it was one comment too many.

Adam jokes about stabbing the kabob through his skull.

Adam says if you can find him the human being who wants that music at the kabob hut then he’ll concede his argument and stop bringing this up.

You’re thinking about killing yourself at the kabob hut edition

Q and Ace

1st Caller Chad, he wants to know Adam’s take on hitchhikers.

2nd Caller Spencer, he mentions that Blues Traveler were just at Red Rocks on the 4th, Spencer says he was listening to Classic Loveline, he was doing it the wrong way via illegal 3rd party uploaded YouTube clips that threaten the very existence of the content he claims to enjoy.

Spencer is bringing up the Veal/Venison episode.

Spencer was listening to this episode



Adam is now addressing me directly, telling me to compose this list, whoa!



1st Time the Game Is played

“01:00:05, greatest veil or venison answer. Venison is in Italy”

– In 2013 a user on Loveline tapes claimed to be the girl who called in and claims she was doing a bogus call, it’s unclear if this is true, it was the first night you were doing the bit, the person claiming to be the caller could be just trying to “ruin” Classic Loveline, many people now go back and claim to be a part of the show or try and reveal some “secret”, Bald Bryan has even done it on air on the ACS, quoting some “fuzzy information” while trying to take away the importance of the legendary batting cage call.




“Caller Jose fails the veal & venison test in spectacular fashion (truly funny).”


MONDAY, MAY 20, 2002


“A great Veal/Venison call where the caller things Veal is snake and venison is fish.”




“Towards the end they play “veal/venison”.”


TUESDAY, MAY 4, 2004


“The guys ask Chris to play Veal and Venison, my favorite Loveline game, at 22:30. His answers are Veal=fish; venison=deer. Adam has been probing the depths of Chris’ mind for the first time lately, which is probably what prompted him to make Chris play.

The guys ask a girl the Veal or Venison question around 27 minutes into the show and she gets them both right. Then Adam throws in calamari as a bonus question.
Caller: “Fish eggs.”
Adam: “Fish eggs. Alright. This game is like one big national mad lib.” (As is tradition with this game, they never reveal whether the person is right or wrong).”

Adam says the callers never knew both of the answers and recalls the funny responses, Gina can’t believe the Italy one happened.

Spencer wants to know if Adam has a plans to come out to Denver, Adam says if they can get those step running assholes to knock it off and he cites August and his toilet paper liberation from Denver.

Adam says that he doesn’t get effected be elevation and notes the time Jimmy may have yacked in an elevator.


Adam says he can take two sleeping pills and 5 highballs, you might hear it in his voice, and Gina wants to know if this is mind over matter or his genetic composition.

BB says it’s GRIT and Adam says he as a strong gravitational pull towards sobriety, Adam says when he’s not had a couple cocktails he’s hyper aware of everything to an almost annoying degree, he drinks to make his senses less sharp.


Adam is telling them about broomball/hockey and how he found a detractor on the other team who was not a fan of Adam and he jumped straight up in the air without anyone warning him or any signal, the douchefuck on the other team smashed his face into the boards.

Adam says he “felt” the guy and cites how they were supposed to fight in the parking lot after.

“You do seem like you would be a drag to eat acid with” – Gina about Adam

Adam says he can shrooms with the best of them, Adam talks about windshield grease and how it distracts him and needs to be dealt with or will bother him the whole drive, I know exactly what he’s talking about.
