Marc Germain, April 16, 2010 – Another Friday night barn-burner on TRO.

Marc Germain, April 9, 2010 – Friday shows on TRO have historically been jibbed-up and this was no exception. Author and blogger Amy Alkon came on to remind us while we’re all so rude with her new book ‘I See Rude People’. Unfortunately for Amy, our rude behavior of talking over each other, shouting and telling everyone they’re wrong proved her point, but brought her down to our level at the same time.

Gleefully we moved on to Tiger, where Marc declared that he’s still not tired of it, even if Sharon The Gossip Mom thinks Tiger needs to be tars and feathers.
Marc Germain, December 8, 2009 – Rob Marinko dropped by to tell us he’s no cat lover, he’s no longer on the cookie diet and we’ve made him sufficiently afraid of flying to Egypt. Marinko was comforted by the idea that his boat probably wont crash while on the Nile. Dan Avey continued his abstract ways that he’s attributing to Gestalt, Marc is extremely sensitive to just about everything and Dina is a member of the mile high club, but is saving the story for another show.

Dina Losito is going to try out Janet’s audio tracks and report back, if she can stay awake long enough. Dan Avey, Dina and Sharon The Gossip Mom talked more Tiger and discussed why Alexa Ray Joel is so unattractive, untalented and now unloved. Trifecta.

Marc Germain, December 2, 2009 – Marc had a fascinating interview with Annie Duke and how her mind works when it comes to poker, math and Joan Rivers. Dan, Dina and Sharon then climbed aboard to discuss Tiger to death, and then somehow segue into a very interesting discussion of how Meredith Baxter could all of the sudden become a lesbian without any signal flares or bad tattoos. It then puffed up into a discourse on whether being queer is factory installed or after-market.
Marc Germain, December 1, 2009 – After being plagued by technical problems and callers, the gang settled in to beat Tiger like a dead horse, discuss the White House crashers as having a ‘blunted affect,’ and Wilt Chamberlain’s stank.

This week is NASCAR’s “Champion’s Week” and for the first time ever it’s being held in Las Vegas … and fans can pay to attend and see their favorite drivers reap their rewards. Plus plenty from racing’s ‘silly season’.
Steve Parker’s The Car Nut, November 28, 2009 – Toyota has admitted a major mechanical problem with its 3.8 million recalled Toyota and Lexus vehicles, after denying it just a week ago. And the “acceleration incidents” are not because of the wrong-sized floor mats; it’s the gas pedals and maybe the ECUs in all the vehicles, too. And this week Toyota also announced a 110,000 unit recall of their Tundra pickup. Also, the Euro company which was negotiating with GM to buy Saab has backed out of the deal.
Marc Germain, November 27, 2009 – We start by explaining Black Friday to Mike Mendoza who hadn’t a clue as to what it meant, and cared even less when explained.

Sharon The Gossip Mom joined in to say Adam Lambert is to big for his britches, Susan Boyle was better before the beauty make-over, and why she’s still bothering everyone with Gosselin crap. Dina Losito as usual, had nothing to add – she prefers to keep her opinions to herself.

Dan, Marc and Dina discussed raising idiot kids, CraigsList, how to work for Google and a big surprise, Avey’s a law-school drop out.

Marc Germain, November 20, 2009 – Marc, Dan Avey and Dina Losito jumped right into the stories of the day, and this week they always lead back to Sarah Palin. Marc gleefully admitted he’d unload in Bambi’s ass if he had the chance, except that the recoil of the rifle, loudness of the shot and the gushing blood from a gaping wound on one of natures most majestic, docile and beautiful woodland creatures would trigger his vasovagal response and he’d drop like a bag of dirt. Chuck Connors he is not. Anyone under 40 must Google that last reference.

Plus all the latest on the “silly seasons” in all the racing series in the world.
FEMALE TROUBLE w/DINA LOSITO, November 14, 2009 – Tonight she went from baby sitting to pot smoking to the beloved Maureen Stapleton on a bender.

Marc Germain, November 13, 2009 – First, some time with Mike Mendoza in the UK then we move to the dark side – mostly because Dan Avey and Sharon The Gossip Mom don’t agree with Marc and Dina Losito about anything Muslim, Religious or profiled.

He’ll tell you all about it when he returns in December. Regan Burns reviewed ‘Men Who Stare At Goats’, ‘The Fourth Kind’ and ‘Spread’.

Marc Germain, November 11, 2009 – We celebrated veteran’s day by reviewing how insane the Ft. Hood shooter is. Dan Avey bought a soldier lunch (all you can eat buffet $5.99 – but it’s the gesture). Sharon chimed in with Joe Jackson being cut out, a pap being punched out by Mike Tyson, and Carrie Prejean flaming out on Larry King. And we all wished Chris Brown kept it private.
Marc Germain, November 10, 2009 – Marc began the show wondering why John Allen Mohammed won’t accept his friend request on Facebook.

IndyCar has a new series sponsor for next year, and Honda is making engines for yet another US racing series. And of course with the end of the racing season comes the ’silly season’ … when teams, sponsors and drivers are traded back and forth like balls in a roulette wheel.
Losito in for Germain, November 6, 2009 – Dina visited with her old friend Tomm Looney, and he cleverly explains how he’s not as old as she is, even though the graduated the same year. He really should write fiction. We discussed enough Michael Jackson to shake a stick at (what does that mean?) Dina introduced the TRO audience to Debra Barsha (debrabarsha.com), an award winning singer/songwriter that not only knows how old she is, but claims to be the first to discover Dina’s dyke-dom. Helen Keller could have spotted that one, but we’ll give Barsha the credit.

Marc Germain, November 5, 2009 – Tonight was all about the incident at Ft. Hood, bad recruitment policies and why the gunman order coffee in a Domo cup. We all decided the worse thing to come out of this tragedy was the piss-poor reporting by every news outlets, AM radio and a few college papers.

Female Trouble w/Dina Losito, October 31, 2009 – Dina began with her take on Michael Jackson’s This Is It, why she loved Soul Train, and a dead parrot.

Dan found himself on the losing end of that argument, although Dina agrees with him about Wayne Newton. Regan Burns reviewed ‘Amelia’ and ‘This Is It,’ and wishes it wasn’t. We talked about George Lopez, Wanda Sykes, and all shared a laugh over the Canadian folk singer eaten by the coyote.
Marc Germain, October 28, 2009 – We introduced Dan Avey to the world. We discussed Leno’s failures, the divorce of the Dodger owners and how good Dina is at planning a funerals for loved ones. Or a mother. Sharon joined in to say how appalled she was at an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, even if she didn’t see or rarely watches the show. Yet another reason why the terrorists hate us.

Female Trouble w/Dina Losito, October 24, 2009 – That went well – and Dina only got up to 1992! From her arrival in NYC and her stint in Tony ‘N Tina’s Wedding, to the time she sought refuge in Los Angeles. How’s that for confused?

We moved on to discuss virtually nothing in the news, a little bit of baseball, and Regan read the entire book “Where The Wild Things Are” just before he reviewed the movie, along with a few words about Chris Rock’s doc Good Hair – all his reviews are at ReganBurns.com.

Apparently you can’t be good wingmen by phone or when Marc is in attack mode. Regan Burns did his movie review thing [The Invention of Lying and Couples Retreat] and really has it in for Vince Vaughn – I guess they’ve read for the same parts. Wound down with the balloon boy non-story – and his lousy actor parents. They need to see a Vince Vaughn movie or watch 40 year old versions.

Somehow we got into religion briefly and discussed that fact that Buddhist don’t believe in good vs evil, only Christians do.
