In this week’s rollicking episode: Gary battles with his local cable company, and it actually doesn’t turn out like you’d expect! Plus: FANTASTIC new music from singer Darlene Love; Tony thinks he offended his son’s friend; Is Rob losing weight?; and, Gary tells us about his role in the 1981 Sylvester Stallone movie “Nighthawks”! This show is all over the place!
For the first time ever on the show, Tony and Gary present a live, in-studio musical performance! (Not including Tony’s best efforts on the harmonica.) Guitar virtuoso Ben Stein stops by to play a few licks, and make his Dad proud. (That’s right….Ben is Gary’s 20-year-old son! And boy does he play good!)
Also: A NEW edition of the “Real or Fake Movie Game”; Gary takes Ben for an uplifting visit to the National Holocaust Museum; the date for the “Two Man March” is announced; and Tony “bumps into” Al Roker!
This episode will be music to your ears!
No, not the MUSICIAN “Dr. John” (Mac Rebennack). A different “Dr. John”. We’ll let Gary tell you who it is. All we’ll say here is that GARY HAS COMPLETELY SOLD US OUT FOR HIS OWN PURPOSES!
Also: The amazing DRX9000 (pictured here); bad product names; bad Beatles songs (!); and, the guys select music upcoming “Two Man March”. And just a heads up: this episode is rated “R”, for language!
Tony and Gary welcome to the studio one of the top comedians working today, Godfrey! You may know him from his hosting duties on Fox-TV’s reality-game show “Bullseye”, or from the IFC series “Benders”, or from his hit 2011 Comedy Central special, “Godfrey: Black by Accident”. Godfrey is HYSTERICAL, and is one of the most intelligent and highly-regarded acts in comedy. What the guys didn’t know before meeting him was how perfectly he would fit our show. It’s just crazy!
Plus: Gary gets aggravated; shopping at Sears; and Rob Ford is a bad, bad boy! This show is…you guessed it…chock full!

Tony quizzes Gary with a NEW game: “Real, or Fake?”, where Gary has to figure out whether or not the described movies are…real, or fake? Also, the guys announce a new initiative that they hope will help make the world a better place, with as little work from them as possible!
PLUS: Gary and Tony take on a challenge issued by Mike O’Meara, AND Gary presents some new music! It’s another chock-full episode!
There are THOUSANDS of excellent sports-themed podcasts available for your listening pleasure, and the “TPSFGS” is certainly NOT one of them! That’s why Tony and Gary have brought in two of the top NFL experts in the land to preview the 2015 football season! It’s in-depth analysis that you won’t hear anywhere else! (Especially since Gary knows virtually nothing about football; his questions are…well…let’s just say they’re quirky!)
PLUS: Gary buys a heating pad; the guys call Gary’s mom again so that Tony can critique her screenplay (awkward!); and, another episode of The Extraordinary Origin of Everyday Things! This show is jam-packed!
This is a special, Beatles-themed edition of the show, for your Labor Day holiday listening pleasure. In this episode, Tony hosts a new game, called “Beat the Beatles!” Essentially, the guys vote on which versions of different songs are better: The Beatles’ version, or someone else’s version? And joining the guys to play is the one and only May Pang, previous “TTPSFGS” guest, and former companion to John Lennon! She brings AMAZING insight into the music!
Also: a special command performance of Tong and Gary’s interview earlier this year with RINGO STARR, and a cool Beatles cover by the group Cowboy Mouth. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
Tony and Gary are joined by one of their very favorite comedians, the current “Mr. Las Vegas”, GEORGE WALLACE! As you can imagine, George is great fun and is a great guy, as well. He is so funny!
Plus, Gary goes to see “Mission: Impossible, Rogue Nation”, but of course has a problem with it; Tony gets a gift from a listener; Gary presents crazy, amazing excerpts from the classic Charles Panati book “The Extraordinary Origin of Everyday Things”; and, Tony’s wonderful colleague from Fox 5, Allison Seymour pays a visit…..for a VERY exciting reason! Enjoy!

The boys tell us about their summer vacations which, of course, did NOT go off without a hitch! Tony does battle with an airline company and has an unpleasant experience in a swimming pool, and Gary goes camping, but ONLY as Gary can….and the results are hysterical!
PLUS: Gary calls his mother and embarrasses Tony, and Tony presents some GREAT musical finds, as suggested by our (wonderful!) listeners!
Recently, Tony and Gary noticed that SEVERAL guests who have appeared on the show have suddenly had BIG things happen in their careers. So the natural conclusion that we have come to is: Tony and Gary are STAR MAKERS! And in THIS all-new episode, we force these stars to admit it! On this show: DONNIE SIMPSON tells us about his long-awaited return to radio (at MAJIC 102.3 in D.C.) and TV (on the TV One cable network); “Fox 5 News Morning” anchor ANNIE YU tells us about her cameo in the movie “PIXELS”; and ANGELA STRIBLING tells us about the expansion of her radio show, “Pillow Talk with Angela”, from one night a week to FIVE nights a week (on 96.3 WHUR-FM, and on Sirius/XM Channel 141)! Aren’t these guys doing great?! Don’t they owe us money or something?!
PLUS: Laughs galore, as Gary and Tony kiss up to Donnie, Rob Ford “role plays” with Angela, and Annie Yu sings! This episode is….wait for it….CHOCK FULL!
