Teresa is out today, so Mike Lynch is stepping in for the news. But before they get started, Adam tells a couple Donny stories. The first involves a long rant where Adam discusses the conspiracy of paying for your water at restaurants, and the next is a drawn out discussion about Donny borrowing Adam’s CBS pilot and not explaining that he watched it. Bald Bryan also chimes in on the argument, trying to determine the proper social etiquette to giving your friend feedback.
In the news, Steven Tyler has been strongly suggested as the newest judge on American Idol. Adam and Mike agree that the show has lost its momentum, and reflect on the best Aerosmith songs. Later, Adam talks about a car auction where he didn’t bid on a car wanted, but heard was ‘not what you think it is.’ Afterwards he met the guy who bought the car, but he didn’t want to ruin his day. The last news story revolves around the highest paid hip-hop artists, and Adam goes on a long rant about rich people paying their ‘fair share’ of taxes.
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones frontman and long time friend Dicky Barrett sits on the couch, and talks about Mike August booking him for the show. They also talk about Adam’s big ‘Garage Mahal’ makeover, and the experience of renovating the warehouse out back. Adam compliments Dicky on his past work as a bartender, and Dicky talks about tending bars from the Fatted Calf in Boston, to Adam’s private parties. He and Adam decide to trade their favorite stories, and Dicky unravels a truly epic story about traveling through Mexico, and eating PB&J sandwiches.
In exchange, Adam tells the story of a road trip with his old friend Daniel Kellison, an obsessive Boston Red Sox fan. Adam complains about the boring car rides, and hanging out with rich people he didn’t like anyway. Everyone then goes on a side jag about watching sports, hanging with Bill Simmons and Cousin Sal, and later they throw in some music related talk about the history of ska and the better Reggae songs.
After a quick round of Germany or Florida, Dawson tells a story of trying to get tickets to a Bosstones’ show and getting recognized by Dicky at the end of the set. Adam talks about the energy of the horn section, and says they have the type of show where it doesn’t matter if you know the songs, you’ll have a great time no matter what.
