Adam opens the show with the Randy and Jason Sklar making their 3rd appearance on the ACS, they were first on in 2012 for ACS #840 and then again in 2014 for ACS #1316 with Dana Gould, both available in the archive via the show page link above.

Adam infamously guested on their fantastic podcast Sklarbro Country but somehow the engineer “forgot” to hit record on the correct mics/boards for the first time ever and then they had to address their upset audience about having Adam on, who didn’t swear nor say anything controversial at all, it was PG Ace.

The Sklars didn’t appear on Classic Loveline nor the KLSX morning show or even ‘Too Late With Adam Carolla’ however if memory serves they may have had at least one appearance on the MTV variant of Loveline, Adam always talks with fondness in his voice when mentioning them much like he does when he brings up other infrequent but solid guest Paul F. Tompkins.


BB has a classic 2012 #TopDrop of the Sklars, Adam is asking them about their new HOWL exclusive show and the premise behind it, how they find material about the cities they visit, Randy or Jason just complimented ‘Road Hard’ and they commiserate about being on the road.

They talk about Rick James and his alleged kidnapping, which was actually dispelled on CLL #537 – 10-20-1997 – Monday Night Show – Guest Rick James which was just recently discovered, transferred and shared online after being lost for 17 years.
