Brad Anthony Jamie Meat are great combo

Love the show guys. Brad rules especially during the egg-cecution punishment when he pelted Rizz Lol. So funny. Jamie is very witty and knows his hockey. Anthony I’ve always been a fan. Very knowledgeable. Meat. Love what you bring too man. Keep it up. Making St. Louis entertained one show at a time. Love y’all. #Foldgang

If you don’t like it, play better.

Anchored by Randy Karraker (Mr. St. Louis), the Fast Lane with Brad Thompson (the redbird reject) and Chris Rongey (the hometown talent) is four hours of sports radio greatness. These three bring informative and insightful talk to the latest in sports, majoring in St. Louis area happenings. They do this despite frequent and notorious “meat-ups,” typographical errors, by their producer Brad Barnes, who apparently suffers from sausage fingers and is never let off the hook.

These three pass the time with engaging interviews, fun trivia contests (The Four O’Clock Fight), and downright hilarious games such as “would you rather” and “with all due respect.” With these segments and others, they invite their listeners to participate via text and voice message. Entertainment is unavoidable.

Randy, Brad, and Chris are a great team with great chemistry. If I were their coach, I’d tell them to “stay within themselves” and “trust the process,” because what they are doing works. Outside of PBO John Mozeliak, you won’t find anyone saying their show is “not great.”

Jack Buck once said, “turn the radio on; you’ll hear a friend.” Listen to the Fast Lane, and I promise you’ll hear three.
