We kicked off today’s show almost missing a host! Abe ran in four minutes to showtime, said he was late because of his bowels, tossed his coat down & groaned that he “didn’t finish.” We’re not sure how “unfinished” it was — but for all intents and purposes, just assume that he did the first 25 minutes touching cotton.

We kicked off the show with… shoes. In a nutshell, Bass “accidentally” packed Abe’s dress shoes following our trip to New York for Howard’s holiday party.

We kicked off the show with good tidings of cheer and the happiest of Hanukah’s for Bass. Ever the diligent and faithful Jew, he’s celebrating by drinking pigs blood and working.

An early entry into the Abe Kanan Quotebook: “I wanted to talk about Christmas, which is on… what is it? The… 25th?” This year, yes, Abe.

Abe brought up Christmas because … Read More

We started today’s show on the wrong foot. Something was just not right. And it wasn’t the fact that December 1st in Chicago was 60 degrees. No, we just couldn’t put our finger on it. After 3 minutes of horrible acting, Abe played Bone Thugs “1st of Tha Month,” (as mandated by our contract) and all was right with the … Read More
