Episode #178 – In The News with Don Dahler

 

CBS News correspondent Don Dahler joins the guys for a fascinating conversation about his life as a network TV reporter and anchor. Don can be seen every week on both “CBS This Morning” and “The CBS Evening News”. Tony and Gary got to know him when he was with ABC’s “Good Morning America”. It was there that Don became one of the first to report on the unfolding tragedy in Lower Manhattan on 9/11; he lived four blocks from the World Trade Center, and he witnessed–and reported on–it all. His recollections on what unfolded that day are riveting and insightful.

Also: Tony and Gary go to a “Race Bar”; Gary’s trip to D.C.; and a new edition of “In the News”!

Episode #175 – Straight Talk

 

After much open speculation by “The Mike O’Meara Show” and many of our listeners about the future of this show, the guys lay it all on the line and pull back the curtain on what’s going on with TTPSFGS. You won’t want to miss it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and we’re sure you’ll weigh in on it all!

Encore Presentation: God is a Loose Cannon

 

The guys are on a brief hiatus, so in the meantime, here is a fun episode from September, 2016. We’ll be back soon with a brand new episode!

An impromptu, crazy, and revealing conversation about God nearly derails this episode almost before it has started! It’s funny and serious, and Tony may need to ask for forgiveness!

Also, the guys introduce the proprietors of Washington D.C.’s most unique music venue, Songbyrd. It’s a cafe, restaurant, and bar, where you can celebrate the surprising return of vinyl music at amazing listening parties, AND hear the latest up-and-coming artists LIVE. It’s VERY cool. And we listen to some records!

Plus: Gary goes to the movies, and an odd “Celebrity Encounter”. Can we get an “Amen”?!

Plus: An update to Gary’s “Supermarket Dilemma”; the guys receive a “mystery gift”; and….the surprise return of Adrian Garcia! This one’s a keeper!
