We kicked off this Good Friday festival of nonsense with the fastest-ever transition from Jesus to “handies” in radio history. In a matter of 37 seconds, we started with Good Friday, which brought a quick mention of Christ’s crucifixion.. from there, I remarked that it’s actually a better-than-good Friday in Chicago, thanks to our sudden rash of temps in the … Read More

We kicked this sum’bitch off with an amusing (and 100% true) trip down memory lane. Back in 2003, Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, showed up unannounced at our old radio station.

We kicked this thing off with a super unexpected addition to the Abe Kanan Show “Big Board.” I honestly don’t think anyone saw this coming! Danielle Fischel, Topanga from “Boy Meets World,” is on the cover of the new Maxim. And what a triumphant comeback! Three years ago, she looked like Tom Sizemore in a wig. Now? Girl Meets Wood. … Read More

We wasted no time in filing a gem in the Abe Kanan Quotebook: “I’m known for being brave. I’m known for my courage. If this were the Wizard of Oz, I definitely wouldn’t be the cowardly lion. Wait… is he the…? Yeah, he needed courage.”

That was Abe’s roundabout way of admitting that he’s legitimately concerned over North Korea’s latest empty … Read More

We kicked this sucker off like we do every 1st — with a little help from Bone Thugs! Yeah, four white guys in a multi-million dollar studio celebrating the arrival of our government checks!

We issued a formal apology to all of the nerds who tuned in tonight hoping to hear Burt Ward, who played Robin on the 1960’s “Batman” TV … Read More
