Tom Leykis came on today and said that he might have come in on the weekend to do a show if it wasn't for all the playoff games because this story about Mark Zuckerberg is just unbelievable. The facebook IPO happens then Zuckerberg gets married the next day. Tom had on two lawyers including Debbie Schlussel who is on TV and Radio all the time. A favorite of Howard Stern. Nobody really knows why Zuckerberg did this but these lawyers say he must have had a prenup and planned this on purpose. It's possible that doing the IPO could demarcate what Zuckerberg owns before he's married. We will have to find out the truth at a later date.
Tom did his Money Monday topic and said don't ever lease a car, it's the biggest rip off in the world.
Hugh Hewitt was blown away by Obama's answer about the Euro and the debt crisis in Europe. He said that Obama is so far over his head, and he's just blah blah blah. He said it's like a bad High School debate answer.
I was listening to the interminably long TWIT (This Week in Tech) with Leo Laporte that went on for over two hours. Leo invites tech guru Robert Scoble on and then interrupts him constantly. I don't know why he has him on at all if he doesn't want him to talk. Maybe he thinks he talks to much. I can't stand that really loud laugh of Roberts but he's fairly coherent. Robert has a sort of reputation for being way geeky and a little socially off. MTV's Adam Curry was also on and him and Robert got into it. Adam did a lot of promos for his show with John C. Dvork "No Agenda" Over all not a great show. Lot of repetition. With all the traveling the Leo does, which is a lot, he has a trip planned to go to Australia...again, he just got back from Norway. I'm not listening to shows with substitute hosts Leo! Consistency my brother.
On KFI tonight Tim Conway Jr doing a commercial for a new sponsor Gravity Defyer Shoes. I think Tim just made this up on the fly (sounds like he's just phoning it in most nights) "Gravity Defyer Shoes...it's like the George Jetson of shoes...yaaaaaa". Oy Vey. It doesn't even make sense Tim. A lot of stuff that Tim says doesn't make sense, and I think he knows it and he doesn't give a crap.
Dennis Miller came on the air with a blown out voice (from air travel) and a blown out phone board. He had on Larry O'Connor: Editor-in-Chief of Breitbart.tv and contributor to Big Hollywood, Big Government and Big Journalism. I like this guy a lot. He has a great voice and is really bright and is funny as hell. He made Dennis laugh...hard. I hope to hear him more often.
I heard half of a pretty good interview on Fresh Air with Terry Gross with Sasha Baron Cohen about his new movie the Dictator. I have never heard him interviewed, worth a listen for sure. http://www.npr.org/2012/05/21/153204627/sacha-baron-cohen-the-fresh-air-interview?ft=1&f=13
This might be a light week, it sure was today. The Memorial Day holiday is this weekend and I think a lot of people are going to be off the grid for the next week and a half, we shall see.
