On this episode of the Q, we are fresh off the Grammy awards and the moment when Kanye decided he might interrupt someone again. Should he have interrupted Beck like he planned on? Well Mark certaintly thinks so and discusses it on the show.
Also, right off the bat, Marina Squerciati of the TV show Chicago PD on NBC jumps on the line with the guys to discuss the new season and her entry into the world of acting. But when Mark finds out shes from NY, he starts askng those questions that only New Yorkers can answer.
Next up is Tony Cabral of www.acefilms.com to talk about his yearly jaunt to Sundance Film Festival. Find out who was Tony's big sighting of the year, while out doing his typical work of the Egyptian Theater where he runs the midnight screenings.
Then Mark, Producer Bobby and Tony discuss the Oscars. All giving their picks for who they think will win. Follow along and find out.
Finally, there is a letter from the listener that is tough. So who else but the two Matt's join in to talk about the finer intricacies of relationships and love! Plus they discuss the Mardi Gras party coming up.
On this episode of The Q, Mark is treated to a special surprise as Producer Bobby brings back all the great hosts and guests from The Q's past to pay tribute and hang out for the 200th Episode of the show. After 4 full years and multiple locations for episodes, the 200 comes in strong from the studios of 1380 KXFN and 1380thex.com .
First up is all the former co-hosts that Mark has had through the years at different times. Anthony Cabral calls in from his home in Chicago to discuss the earliest episodes that happened at Virtual Entertainment Radio, as well as their past running of Primetime with Mark and Tony. But Tony seems to be calling in from a Frito's bag since there is some distortion while he is talking with the crew. Then Mark goes around the table to Andy Echele, Dan Walsh, Lucy Mendez, Matt Krueger and Justin "Deyemofo" Deming describing how they got involved with the show.
From there the guys welcome in some of the past great guests that have been involved with the show. First up is Lia Weber, the winner of TLC's Next Great Baker that brings in a anniversary cake for the crew. Joining her is Matt Guillot and Chef Johnson of BaconFest STL who graced everyone with some delicious hamburgers and bacon wrapped minis that were devoured quickly. Mark does a quick round of the Kenny Kinds Hotseat with them and can't help but tear into Guillot when he discusses some of his answers.
Then round two when Sam Arcobasso, his partner Corey and North County song writer Tyler Crandall jump on the mics to discuss what they been up to and to do their round of Hotseat....but not before Justin Deming and Andy Echele square off verbally to discuss the differences in their views on Ferguson and some other lightly sprinkled controversial issues.
Finally its everyone together discussing the entire history of the show and some of their more fond memories of being on the show. All this happens with a dose of the Year End FOTO.COM Q AWARDS for 2014! Plus you get OVERTIME where everything rattles completely off the rails. What more can you ask for in the 200th episode. We really don't know!
Potentially the greatest night in The Q show history was made. Mark debuted a new co-host named Lucy Mendez and the guys from BaconFest in St. Louis stopped by with their HOG LOG!
First up, Mark welcomes Matt & Matt from Baconfest to come in and discuss, with their partner Chef John Johnson, the formulation of this young event. This leads through a weird world of BRORGIES™, kickball leagues and reacreations of epic mealtime stunts that lead to BACONFEST. Plus Chef Johnson brings in the amazing HOG LOG (bacon, Sweet Baby Rays BBQ wrapped in Sausage and re-wrapped in more BACON....YUM!). This sweet meat of the gods is delicious and will be one of the centerpieces for the upcoming event in STL!
The guys then switch gears. Lucy goes on a verbal tirade that lasts throughout the show. Constantly pushing the FCC boundaries with her dirty foul mouth. Also we discuss about the general that was killed with others in Iraq. We also talk about food shows and which ones are worth their weight in gold and which ones suck according to Chef Johnson.
Finally I need to get to some letters from the listeners and I'm super excited to have the double Matt's on to discuss. And per the request of Matt #2, we touched on the story of a high school teacher that showed up the first day a little intoxicated. This leads to a rant by Mark discussing the time period for school to start and stop in the US cause he feels it starts entirely to early. They all discuss their growing up respectively and when they started school.
And don't forget, OVERTIME is attached to this bad boy! It's the Q!.
