Free Beer and Hot Wings

Weekdays 4 a.m. to 9 a.m.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FREE BEER & HOT WINGS SHOW.
The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show began as an afternoon show in Omaha, NE at non-commercial ration station KIWR in March of 1997. The Show was comprised of two, former Central Michigan University roommates who eventually moved to mornings several months later where they remained until the summer of 2000 when they moved to WBON in Knoxville, TN. It was there that they met the show’s eventual 3rd member and other CMU grad, Eric Zane, who was, at the time, their direct competitor at WIMZ. When Zane was fired, he immediately drove across town and joined The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show. In June of 2002, The Show moved to New Jersey, where they were simulcast on WTHK in Trenton and WCHR on The Jersey Shore. The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show began full syndication in 2004 with the addition of WGRD in Grand Rapids, MI and is now heard on radio stations in 15 different states.

WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM?
Instead of calling the show, The Gregg & Chris Show, which by all estimations would have been the most boring sounding radio show in the world, the decision was made to call it The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show, which seemed far more attention grabbing. It was admittedly nothing more than a cheap ploy to get people to listen under the false pretense that they may actually have a chance to win beer and/or hot wings. However, it was not intended that those two things would become permanently synonymous and attached to Gregg and Chris as nicknames, but that’s what happened and now they have to live with the consequences of their B.S. forever. Also, the reason Zane wasn’t given a food name is that, when he joined the show, he was already a well-known personality and frankly, another food name would have just been an overkill of stupidity.

A 911 Operator Missed an Emergency Call Because She Was Ordering Pizza [Video]

There are a couple of stupid things in this story. First, how could this lady not know that someone was calling? The phone rings when someone is calling, and it flashes on her computer screen, so obviously the thought of pizza made her forget that she had an important job. Also, how can there be only one 911 operator for this area? You'd think that there would be teams of 911 operators, since it's kind of important. And finally, why did it take her eight minutes to order a freakin' pizza?
