Old thread

Welcome to the all new Opie & Anthony/Ron & Fez Show Megathread! Here's a place where you can safely discuss these two (mostly) quality radio programs without having to endure the crippling stupidity that plagues the majority of the O&A/R&F sites on the web.

The Opie and Anthony Show
Weekdays, 6am-11am
on the Opie and Anthony Channel
XM 103 Sirius 206
866-WOW-1-WOW




After a year in which the bitching about management had reached epic proportions, O&A finally had something constituting a victory: the Radio Wizard is out. In his place is Tim Sabean, who worked with the boys in the past. In addition, Don “Wicky” Wicklin returned to the channel. O&A finally has people in charge that would get stuff done. In short order, O&A were asked to move to afternoons and had an idea for a cruise to celebrate their 20th anniversary torpedoed, so you know that things are going to change for the best on the O&A Channel. They’re still pushing their new podcast which isn’t a real podcast, in preparation for starting a real podcast when their contract is up next October no they won’t, they’re too dependent on the money they get from Sirius to go anywhere else.

As for the guys themselves, not much has changed: Opie is still a the cool dad who wants to go viral, Ant is a racist gun nut, and Jimmy is a tranny obsessed fame whore. The show itself has been in a weird place, as the show-killing race/guns/free speech segments still happen quite a bit. But when they’re on, there’s still nothing funnier on the radio. As of late, a lot of the freaks who had been associated with the show had been returning: Bobo has been in studio a lot lately, Lady Di and Marion returned, Stalker Patti came back in, even Sandy Kane made a return to the O&A Show. A happy bonus on these freak shows is Colin Quinn has been in a lot more lately, planning his big cross-country comedy tour with Bobo and becoming enamored with the lovely, leggy Lady Di.

Have some good bits from O&A over the last year:

With the crew, the biggest change is Troy Quan is (thankfully) no longer allowed on air, after a homophobic rant against Mark Zito which nearly cost him his job. The boys can’t understand why a gay person would be angry about that rant, figuring that “you’re a dick sucking enjoyable human being who likes penises” has NOTHING to do with being gay. Sam still hosts After O&A Live and his own Sunday show, E-Rock is vague and fat, Roland is Metzican and fat, Travis is rarely heard, Sal is barely worth mentioning, and Kenny is still an oaf.

The Ron and Fez Show
Weekdays, 12pm-3pm
on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99
866-RON-0-FEZ
That’s 866-RON-0-FEZ




After years and years of putting up with Fez’s silence and locking up on the air, Ron Bennington was fed up with it. Ron started making some noises that he was very dissatisfied with the direction the Ron and Fez Show was going in, and was open on air about something needing to change. Fez, meanwhile, was quite happy with the status quo, of silently sitting there in his own misery while Ron and Pepper Hicks did all the work on air. After a nice, pleasant dinner with the bosses, Ron and Pepper left feeling happy about the future of the show with SiriusXM, though Fez didn’t like his steak because “it had spices on it”. The next day, it became apparent that, in Fez’s mind, the dinner wasn’t so much fun, as he thought the bosses were conspiring to get him off the show. What followed was one of the most uncomfortable, and compelling, hours of radio in history:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Yf6iqTjTFQ

This also turned into the most uncomfortable live read for cookies you’ll ever hear:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc_avhLQoeM

Clearly, something had to change, and change it did. Ron announced on December 6 the the Ron & Fez Show will be moving to Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99, starting Monday, January 6. Ron has some great ideas for the new show on Raw Dog SiriusXM Comedy Hits 99, with a new focus on comedy, befitting their status as the new cornerstone on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99. Once on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99, the plan is to have lots of comedians on, with new bits, new imaging, new staff, live shows, and all kinds of other surprises. Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99 is sure lucky to have the Ron & Fez Show, only on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99.

But moving channels to Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99 doesn’t address what a mess Fez is, does it? Of course it does! Y’see, Fez has a newfound focus on the show. He’s bringing back his old bits and characters, and some new ones will be coming soon on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99. And, what if Fez doesn’t turn over a new leaf on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99? Well, Fez renegotiated his deal, so that after three months on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99, Fez will be evaluated. If the bosses don’t like what they hear from Fez on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99, then he’s out the door. Could this really be the end of Ron & Fez? Or will Fez turn it around? Find out this January on Raw Dog Sirius XM Comedy Hits 99!

Some basic ground rules in this thread: Discussion of other radio shows is not prohibited in this thread since that is often a topic on O&A, just keep things civil and stay out of the Stern thread with your O&A fandom. This thread isn't about O&A vs Stern and Bubba even though it may come up from time to time. You are expected to uphold a standard of conduct. Be smart, avoid blind fanboyism and trolling. We've done a mostly good job in these thread so let's keep it up. Expressing your disgust for a person, bit, or the show in general is fine, just keep it civil please.

I assume it would have been mentioned in the thread, but has Ron revealed the Christmas gift? He said he would when the show returned, right?

To another year of hearing you guys complain about opie and Anthony and another year of you guys hearing if Ron and Fez is just one huge bit.

Also predictions to Ron and Fez, nothing will change. Fez will still be crazy Fez. The new channel will just be ok..since they're not really revealing or giving what the people want. Things will fall into place until the next contract. I doubt Fez will be fired. It's just another bit that won't pay off.


Also the gift will be so lame that Ronnie be will have to sell it while Hicks tries to feign amazement. Unless it's a jar of semen or a picture of Ron sleeping, I doubt it will be good.

It's going to start off as " The reason this card is so weird is because I said once that I hated Reindeer and..." then they'll go on for an hour on the lame gift.


But who knows. Ronnie likes giving poo poo for Fez bits not paying off, 3 years, he better deliver.

Seriously? I thought the move to afternoon's idea was successfully squashed? The OP didn't make that clear, in that case, I don't think. So basically there is no good comedy radio in the morning, anymore? Time to dive more into Podcasts, I guess

Lady Di is tweeting the SiriusXM account and asking them to tell O&A to call her when they get back. Good gods that woman is retarded.

So pretty much as expected. I hope they are working on something else because replays all day is just stupid. Although I guess at least there won't be anything competing with Ron and Fez. And really things aren't going to change too much for me I guess. O&A in the mornings. Ron and Fez noon-3. Ellis in the afternoons. Meh, whatever.

Yeah. Unbelievable. gently caress Sirius. Howard sues the company and hardly ever works and they bend over backwards to suck his dick. Meanwhile, they do everything they can to smother new, creative (and cheap) content. This company is such a joke.
