Yea, I can't get the classic line out of my head, "We don't want these ni****errrrrs!!"

Oh man, so wrong, but so hilarious.

Holy shit... Billy West doing Marge Schott is some of the best radio in the history of radio.

It never ceases to amaze me. For years I've been pointing out the painfully apparent differences from the show of yesteryear to that of today. Nothing touches the absolute high wire comedy from those days. I don't care how others point out that I'm an "old man" in my views. With these specials it becomes painfully apparent of how fantastic the show could be back in the day.

Actually, all of that hit the airwaves. That was long before Tom and the button.

:p

Crazy! There were definitely some times during that week where stern would have the people stop yapping due to them being in delay but the whole week was good stuff. They are having the most fun and on top of the world (it seems)

I played my g/f the Marge Schott stuff before going to the store... I had to shut her up when she joked (in the store) "I neva' called a porch monkey a nigga". Not a good public joke, but she's foreign and literally doesn't get a lot of american slang.

I'm surprised they let Billy West talk about the real reason he left the show.

I missed it What did he say?

He was told to sign a paper stating that he was responsible for everything he said in character.

Its a shame, I really enjoyed him on the show - it was at that time that I first started listening and his voices still make me laugh when I hear them.

Yeah, It was good to hear Billy's take on it all, and good to hear him talk about him leaving the show, but there didn't seem to be much malice or hate towards the show when he said that, so I think he's on decent terms at least.

Either i'm getting deja vu, or this was mentioned before.

hmmm...I think this business of making the talent and the producers personally responsible for liabilities resulting from the bits they create is part of the standard contract that tv and radio stations try to impose. Good for Billy. Real gutless on the part of Howard's Krok production... I'm going to go a little PC here but I think the success of Billy's Marge Schott bits was not just his unbelieveable impersonation but the titillation from hearing a white guy yell on-air about "niggers" and "porch monkeys". I see it a little differently than the Daniel Carver bits.. Carver was a perfect embodiment of ignorant hate and prejudice His "niggers are animals" rant contrasted beautifully with the brilliant and black Robin Quivers having a good laugh throughout.... The lesson was hard to miss... No preaching necessary....

It has been on the air before. I think when they did the "Spotlight on Billy West" show a couple years back.

If this is so, why does Howard continually ponder on-air about why Billy left and why Billy doesn't come on... and why he no longer seems to be a "friend of the show"?

It's usually OK if you see that the store has a schwoogie button...


The line that has always stuck with me is "...and when I see them riding their bicycles, I almost neva hit them with my CAAAaaaa..."
