Adam has a nice “going on year #7” intro and talks about turning some interns into employees, David Wild is back in studio making his 94th appearance and BB has a funny new #TopDrop of Adam.

Adam says that David Wild has brought his ballot in for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Gina has a funny Joan Jett comment and Adam is asking if OJ Simpson’s Heisman trophy was removed from display at USC.

BB and Adam joke about Reggie Bush having his trophy removed because he bought some rims and got his parents a house, murdering is ok though.


David has a solid ‘Capricorn One’ reference and Adam thinks that it’s among a list of movies he needs to compose where the title is better than the actual film.

BB has a side point about the variety of athletes that still have their trophies on display at USC.

BB is arguing in favor of Reggie Bush and his actions that didn’t effect anything on the field, Adam talks about calling into the morning show with Mark and Gina.


Adam is now asking David about a Bruce Springsteen rehearsal he wants to invite Lynette to attend as his date, Adam talks about doing the Mr. Mom Duties while Lynette is in New York at ‘Stand Up For Heroes’ once again. David has a funny “I want to invite her to so many places” line that only Gina seems to notice or react to.

Adam says as big of a dickhead as everyone thinks he is he almost never says no, his big issue is asking people to do things and finding out they didn’t do it.

BB jokes about the silent shaming that Adam does for people who ask for days off or favors, Adam has a Mangria label approval process with the ATF example, he gets pissed when the person never sent the label in, not the 3 months of bureaucracy he doesn’t like but tolerates as it’s part of life.
David asks what will happen when god forbid Bruce passes away, how Lynette would react, funny reply from Adam.

Adam is talking about calling into the Mark and Gina show and explains how difficult it is to pack all of his kid’s books and school supplies for their day.

Adam is talking about how Natalia will not only just yell out with that “crazy Helen yell”, but she will also yell for Sonny instead of going to get him as requested.

Adam is talking about free tablets for students and how it doesn’t work out the way we intend, the notion is a great idea but giving people free shit lowers their self-esteem and causes the very systemic problems Huffpo spends all their time fretting about.

Adam talks about earning things and BB has a funny line wrapping it up.


Adam talks about his son and his crew of stuffies, David asks how much longer this will be cute for and Adam jokes about burning his house down to remedy it.

Adam is setting up a story, he had his son sit down and watch Manoj Bhargava’s documentary, BB has a funny ‘Taboo II’ drop and Adam explains the story behind Manoj who is coming in for a Take a Knee later today.

David has a great anecdote about working on a project with Seth Macfarlane, sounds very cool!

They play another clip and Adam jokes about starting a group called “concerned parents for butterflies” and he mocks the crazy people at home who spend their lives trying to ruin things or combat other people’s groups arguing about nothing.


David has a solid point about politicians tackling this issues and Adam is now talking about how they now just spend all of their energy trying to shit on the opposing side, what we really need is a smart guy in charge instead of the shitty pyramid of infighting our current political system is defined by.

Adam says he doesn’t like a lot of Janet Jackson songs, Gina is defending Nine Inch Nails and The Smiths, David says he’s not allowed to say if he agrees with Adam or not, being professional as fuck.

Adam says there aren’t any ‘Cars’ songs that have made him think, nobody touches on the coincidence/irony of them having “think” in the title of one of their biggest hits.

Adam and David bond over their love of ‘All Mixed Up’ and Dawson plays a deep cut from ‘The Cars’ and now Adam is asking to breakdown the lyrics to see if there is anything more to it than their hits.

They’re now playing ‘Highway Star’ and Adam is offering up some mild commentary as they listen to the track.

Adam, David and Dawson all offer some comments about the band after the big drum solo, they seem to be in agreement the band and this track are the definition of rock and roll.
