Producer Bobby is off for the week, so what was a three-way turns into a two way but that other member is a doozy. Andy Echele, former co-host, joins the show to talk with Mark about whats been up in his life.
This leads to Mark and Andy breaking down the St. Louis area for the people listening around the country and throughout the world. Mark brings up the fact that STL people tend to be riddled with bad attitude and the guys try to figure out where this attitude comes from. Is it upbringing? Maybe? Is it the water? Maybe?
Then the two tackle a special story out of the STL area about a mother and father sticking up for their kid at a local park...by pulling a gun. Mark poses this to Andy to find out who was in the wrong in his mind. Was the mother being overly protective or just out right lawless?
Finally, the discussion turns to Kim Davis. Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Court clerk who has persistently refused to issue gay marriage licenses, has asked the Supreme Court to hear her case. Mark and Andy break down the ill will she is throwing out there and figure if she is a worthless idiot or making a strong case for others. This in a weird way leads to a discussion about Motorcycle Riding clubs and their backgrounds, as well as their ranking system amongst each other.
In Overtime, Andy brings up Umar Lee and his mild dislike for people within the STL community in the past year taking sides on racial inequality. They discuss the value of racial inequality in the area and a recent story regarding neighbors not getting along because of loud dogs (go figure in STL).

Fast food places have a penchant for putting vegetables on their burgers...unfortunately, Mark is here to save the day regarding whether or not this is a practice that needs to be handled in this way, especially lettuce. Find out where you stand on this priority of national importance!
Next, Barack Obama has been getting blindsided by former secretary Donald Rumsfeld when "Donny" starts complaing about the Afghan wars and how the POTUS and his white house administration handled them. This leads to a war of words between Mark and Dan Walsh (being a former military man). Does Barack deserve the lashing that everyone gives him....the team discusses.
Then Producer Bobby brings up a local St. Louis story about a principal at an elementary school that oversteps their bounds in everyones opinion when handling policy with a parent of an autistic child. Needless to say the police get involved and Mark thinks its just a power play by people that are constantly trying to insert their will and force on others for no reason. Take a listen and see if you think that the school, police or Mark is in the right on this situation.
Finally, another week and another GAME ON/GAME OFF plus a small discussion about the most CONTROVERSIAL movies of all time. How many have you seen? How Controversial are they? Find out on the Q....real radio, real honest.

For the first time since their show together for the FOX affiliate in St. Louis, Mark, Matt K. and Andy E. are back together behind the microphone to take on the biggest stories (and kinda interesting ones) of the week.
With many a person working two jobs in the USA, the US Gov has decided to potentially raise the minimum wage. This has irritated the conservative businessmen of America and they are out in full force against the raise in pay. So our esteemed panel of hosts and guests will talk about the plan increase and what it means to all the hardworking people of the country.
Then, fresh off the heels of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, a Missouri man decides to put property rights and defending yourself to the test as he shoots and kills a man for peeing on his property during a break on a float trip on the Meremec River. Was the man in his rights to defend his property or was this a case of mistaken machismo that went wrong. Two Conservatives and a Moderate/Liberal will discuss and break down all the angles for you.
Also, our favorite angry homosexual movie critic decides to bring the thunder on Pacific Rim and Warm Bodies. So where does Bill stand on these precious gems from Hollywood...tune in a listen to him take a couple shots at the works of art.
HE'S BACKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! Mark's former MMA co-host and always controversial individual Andy Echele jumps in for Justin and fireworks eventually ensue. First off the guys make a run to the sports side of the world to catch up with the CBG (cracker behind the glass) Robb Davis to discuss Alabama winning the BCS Championship game, Hockey making its triumphant return (blah!) and the snubbing of great Baseball players in regards to the Hall of Fame 2013. Then Mark and Andy jump into their old forms to talk a little MMA and the current status of it in 2013, mind you Andy ain't having it DANA WHITE. After all that settles, Andy and Mark graciously discuss the Pussification of the USA via gun laws and everything that Andy can find to throw at the idea. Also the two gents break down some listener emails where a question regarding weird or horrifying happenings from the past jogs Andy's memory on a very graphic situation a "cop friend" once told him about. Its a story to not be missed.
So all that and much more awaits you on the next episode of THE Q....Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
On this episode of The Q, Mark and Justin are joined by rival radio political host Tony Katz of rival St. Louis radio station 97.1 FM. Tony is a self proclaimed member of the Tea Party. A sensationalist to the extreme, it doesn't take long before the cats out the bag and Justin is verbally going TOE to TOE with Mr. Katz . So was there any common ground to be had? Listen in and find out!
In the second half of the show, Mark decides to take some Listener Emails, but that doesn't last long before him and riled up Justin start to discuss the virtues of being Homosexual and whether or not they are a bigger burden to themselves than they should be.
Its definitely a show to not miss and once again THE Q proves to be the only stomping ground where and ANY and ALL individuals (regardless of politics) can come to square up and throw down on the topics that influence our country! Real Radio, Real Honest.....its THE Q!
