I have a little secret I’d like to impart
That I hope doesn’t give you too much of a start
Though it’s shocking, it’s completely true
I know it’s not gossip or rumor, of course
For I got it from quite a reliable source
And I’d like to pass it on 
To you…

The man in the moon ins a lady
A lady with lipstick and curls
The cow that jumped over cried, Jumpin’ Jehovah
I think it’s just one of the girls
She winks at the stars from her bed of green cheese
It isn’t a nightgown 
It’s a satin chemise
Her friends are the stars and the planets
She sends the Big Dipper a kiss
So don’ty ever offend her
Remember her gender
The man in the moon
Is a miss (myth)

“It’s so hot, you guys. Like SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAWT!! I THINK I’M GOING TO TAKE MY SHIRT OFF IT’S SO HOT. Wait, who am I kidding. Nobody wants to see that. Well maybe your mom, but she’s a slut. Anyhoo, it’s time for another Rad Dudes podcast. And this one, holy smokes, this one… I want to tell you how awesome it is but i don’t want to spoil the surprise. Let’s just say an intergalactic peanut farmer shows up and gives us the interview of a lifetime, Mel Gibson makes magic and we introduce the concept of beard math. Just roll with it, it’ll all make sense soon. Now, please do yourself a favor and try to be as cool as this dog right here.”

"The Cop" at his fighting (coke) weight

“The premise of the game is simple: hand a friend a sugary Smirnoff Ice™ malt beverage and he (most participants have been men) has to drink it on one knee, all at once — unless he is carrying a bottle himself, in which case the attacker must drink both bottles of what [Wingo] described as a ‘pretty terrible’ drink.”*

More people are dead. Fucking cool ones, too. However, the Rad Dudes are here to help you turn that frown upside down! Rednecks, pedos, bad asian accents (and a real one too) all fly around and into your earholes. God Bless America. Happy Memorial Day, sluts.

He's such a fucking douche!!

Douchebag Cat does not approve of your Kafka-esque beaurocracy.

Saddle up, kiddies, because Wingo has a dilly of a pickle of a story for you. You think you’ve been screwed by the man before (THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID)? Well, you ain’t heard nothing yet. One half of the Rad takes on the city of Los Angeles in a way that has to be heard to be believed. Also, the boys get gangsta as fuck (bling bling, y’all) and dance like goons. What else is new?  Oh, and SHOUT OUT TO ZOMBIE JESUS AND EARTHQUAKES.

We like this movie!

We DO NOT like clowns!!

Best Enjoyed on the Metro 720 Eastbound

Look, we get it. We haven’t recorded a show in a while and you’re sad. The Rad Dudes understand. We realize you need aural pleasure from Wingo and Jovi as much as possible, as much as we can give. And, let’s be frank, we’ve kind of dropped the ball. But we’ve been busy! Like for realzy. So, just for you guys, we sat down and turned on the mics. Minimal outline, minimal notes, just some tunes, cold beers and the super mega awesomeness that The Rad Dudes provide. And the ZuKeeper too (if you’re into that sort of thing.) You’re welcome. You can thank us later .

Commander FuzzyPaws

All Hail The Commander

On this episode you actually get The Rad Dudes in (pseudo)stereo. That’s right, Wingo in one ear and Jovi in the other (Here we stand, worlds apart). We know, we know…disgusting yet aurally pleasing. In this episode, hear the boys discuss America, the merits of drinking a case of beer BEFORE attending a Dodgers game, air keyboarding, fake hookers and how to count to ten badly in Japanese. All this and then some, IN YOUR FACE.
