    Anyone here listen to D&M?

    I've been listening for 6-8 years, and just love the guys.

    How 'bout Don coming on the radio yesterday, after the untimely death of his wife, and just airing it all out....!

    Amazing radio, I thought....

    I listen on the way home from school, but I don't usually go out of my way. It was sad when freida died... Even guys on local shows were bummed and almost did entire shows about it.

    My favorite segment is most definitely Jew to Jew.
  3. I'm a big fan of D&M. I try to listen everyday, but sometimes obligations take precedence. Anyway, yesterday's show was very moving. I told my wife about it and she got teary eyes too. It's such a shame when you loose a special someone with whom you share an almost cosmic bond. But we should not question God's motives and just accept.

    I never heard of them. The dial on my radio never leaves sports radio.

    "Don and Mike kick ass"

    Yesterday's show was the most moving radio I've ever heard. I feel very bad for Don, it was so obvious how much he and Frieda loved each other.

    I wonder how long till they're funny again. They are some of the best comedy talk radio ever, though some of the games they play are boring and dumb. My brothers went to high school with Robbay, I saw him play in his high school play. :)
    That's a good one, but my favorite right now is "Isn't That Something". I feel sorry for the poor "guests" when they do those dumb fake radio shows, these people are ususally plugging a book or something and they can't get a word in edgewise.

    Mike's voice talent is exceptional. I miss "Uncle Cartoon".

    I still haven't been to O'Meara's Pub (Hank's Look-Around Cafe) yet but I intend to go for dinner one of these weekends.

    I missed yesterday's show (well, and today's for that matter). Did Don use the whole show to talk about Freida?

    Actually Don didn't show up. Mike Sorce did for the first and only time ever. And he spent the whole time talking about his loss, much of it taking calls, only a few of which were idiots.

    I am a big fan of comedy, but I just don't get Don and Mike. It seems to me that they just sort of mindlessly ramble on about silly little subjects all day long. I am more of a fan of intelligent structured humor I guess. Can anybody explain what is so amusing about these guys? I just don't get them.

    I am a proud member of the Opie & Anthony Army and find D&M to be a huge waste of radio airwaves. In short, I think they stink and I don't like them.

    That being said, no one deserves to have their wife die.

    Some of their stuff is structured, like the aforementioned "Jew to Jew" and "Isn't That Something", as well as the impression and "Low Budget Jeapordy" on Fridays.

    I tried to like O&A for a little while, but they seemed like nothing but sophomoric obscene sexual shock stuff whenever I heard them. I don't like that kind of radio personally.
