    S4 E1 WRESTLING WITH MYSELF

    S4 E1 WRESTLING WITH MYSELF

    It seemed like a good idea at the time...join the Robio as he tells the story about his tenure with the WWF, as one of the first hosts of Monday Night Raw.  Enjoy his brutal honesty, and take pleasure in his cringing displeasure as he freely admits how TRULY AWFUL he was, using clips from those dark days in Professional Wrestling History as evidence of the extent of how horrifically horrendous he was.  It's funnier than he ever was on the show itself.

    S3 E17 - A VERY BEATLE CHRISTMAS

    Join the Robio for a very special holiday episode, featuring all 8 of the Beatles Christmas Records that were recorded every year from 1963 to 1969.  There is much Mersey Merriment in store with John Paul George and Ringo and their Holiday Cheer, (Some of which appears to be enhanced by some Yuletide Pharmaceuticals) Plus a Bonus Post-Credit Sequence, featuring a medley of Beatlesque Carols recorded by the Fab Four.  (Not the Beatles…or to be confused with The Fab Faux, Will Lee and Jimmy Vivino’s Beatle Tribute Band). A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Laugh quite often

This is a funny man, I’ve been a fan for many years, watching his broadway show and seeing him do several stand ups in addition to, of course, listening to the I man.

It’s a fun podcast !

Love from Tennessee

I grew up listening to Imus . Moved to Nashville , became a pro musician. Got to be in Imus program @ fox business playing guitar and met Rob and Tony . Watched them work in the green room typing and I think it was jokes about us . Either way I love his humor and am so happy I can still hear him after the Imus show has ended . He deserves more ratings and reviews .

Thank you

This is not a typical podcast review. Rob is not only extremely talented but also a true gentleman and loyal friend. The heartfelt tribute to Imus is a great gift at a sad time. What a comforting gift to his family and an example for all of us — grains that we should cherish and pursue in our lives by example.
