AWWWWWWW HELLLLLLL YEAHHH RADIO WARS ARE BACK.
“Missanelli’s a bitch and his show sucks, dude. You wanna hear me be a big guy? He’s a horrible talk radio host in a city that accepts crap. So that’s why people like Bitchanelli. He’s old, he’s tired, his show is lame. He’s a dope. Go to any other market and he wouldn’t have a chance. He was grandfathered in here. He blows. His show blows, go listen to that. He’s uninteresting, old, and unappealing. Go do ‘General Knowledge Wednesday’ bro … If I were on in the afternoons I’d kill him. I would literally kill him.”
“I promise you this, and people don’t like me saying this, but I promise you this: if I went up against old man Bitchanelli and his lame-ass schtick, and his general knowledge and just … everything about him is dopey. His show is terrible. I did it to the shows in Houston and I would do it here. I promise you that. I would murder his show. I would take his audience. … If you want to bring up Bitchanelli and his old tired show and his general knowledge and his ‘hey tune in tomorrow, we got prizes to give away,’ [Innes goes on an extended Missanelli impression that could use some work but is getting there] … Go to hell. I’ll crush that old bastard and his lame show. Give me a break. Put me [up against him] and I’ll beat him. But nobody will. They don’t want to put me on against him, whatever. I’d crush him. You’d ever play basketball by yourself? You’re always gonna win. Put a competitor. See what happens.”
Now, while your pupils bring themselves back down to size, let me call your attention to the not-so-thinly-veiled shot at current WIP afternoon hosts Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis. They don’t want to put me on against him, whatever. I’d crush him. You’d ever play basketball by yourself? You’re always gonna win. Put a competitor. See what happens. I’m pretty sure he just likened Gargano and Ellis to that ghost defender always trying to block your last second buzzer-beater at the gym.* His shots at Missanelli aren’t new, but the I can do it better than these guys sentiment towards his colleagues… well, that’s something.
You can listen to the full thing here— fun starts around 1:00.
*I own that guy.
