TONIGHT: WEEK THREE OF NoDudeVember! LET’S GET THANKFUL! AND I WILL DONATE MONEY TO THE FOOD BANK IF YOU GET AN ACTUAL FAMOUS PERSON TO CALL IN!

unnamedHey! We’re back again, trying to keep the ridiculous Best Show hot streak alive! Right now there isn’t a podcast on the planet that touches what we’re doing. Our worst is better than their best. But we all know that, right? Let’s explain what’s going on tonight!

Firstly, NoDudeVember is still going strong! That means that only non-dudes can call in! Sorry, dudes! Talk to me on Twitter! Or email me! But just ice yourself if you’re looking to call!

Tonight we are going to all try to collectively recalibrate ourselves and figure out THE THINGS THAT WE ARE THANKFUL FOR. That’s right, Thanksgiving can be about more than family horror and food, so let’s talk about the things we are lucky to have in our life! We’ve got a lot of work to do so let’s get our houses in order!

And if you are an ACTUAL REAL FAMOUS PERSON or can stick the phone in the hand of an ACTUAL REAL FAMOUS PERSON and get them to talk on the show for a few minutes, I will donate money to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. The amount will be based on the quality of the celebrity!

And we will hear from AP Mike on his pro wrestling managerial debut this pastFriday! I don’t know the story yet so I CANNOT WAIT.

You can call in at 201-332-3484.

When is The Best Show on? From 9PM-midnight EST every Tuesday! You can listen live at TheBestShow.net and if you can't listen live you can download tonight’sepisode Wednesday morning at the website or on iTunes or your RSS feed orwherever!

THE ORDER OF THINGS 2016

It’s been a long-time topic on The Best Show over the years. Every once in awhile we take a step back and we rank EVERYTHING from best to worst. In past years nothing topped a row of ducks crossing the street and stopping traffic. This year it might be something different, although ducks crossing the street still sounds pretty strong.

We will get to the bottom of it tonight!

And there are a million other things we’re gonna talk about too! And I will be joined by the incredible artist J PENRY and fashion superstar JUDI ROSEN! It’s gonna be fun!

And we’re keeping THE DREYFUSS 100 alive! One hundred bucks to the charity of Richard Dreyfuss’s choice if he calls in for five minutes!

The on-air number is 201-332-3484 to get in on the action!

When is The Best Show on? From 9PM-midnight EST every Tuesday! You can listen live at TheBestShow.net and if you can't listen live you can download tonight’sepisode Wednesday morning at the website or on iTunes or your RSS feed orwherever!

kurtvile2015ReplacementsBook_author

To quote Sir Philip Collins, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life! The legendary KURT VILE is going to be live in the Best Show studios tonight! The one and only KV put out one of the best albums in ages B’LIEVE I’M GOIN DOWN… and we will talk about his touring and other things and it will be great!

If that wasn’t enough, author BOB MEHR will also be in studio as well! Bob wrote TROUBLE BOYS, which is the definitive book about the Replacements and one of the greatest rock bios ever written. He’s amazing and we will talk about that and other things too. Sorry for being vague but the show didn’t happen yet!

We will have A LOT OF SURPRISES throughout the show as well. Some really big ones. Get ready, just like the Mens Warehouse dude, I’m gonna say that you’re gonna love it, I guarantee it!

So tune in and call in at 201-332-3484 to get in on the action.

When is The Best Show on? From 9PM-midnight EST every Tuesday! You can listen live at TheBestShow.net and if you can't listen live you can download tonight’s episode Wednesday morning at the website or on iTunes or your RSS feed or wherever!
