GLL Episode 787

CLL #787 (feat. Local H) – 10/05/1998 – Monday Night Show

Source – Kevin Tape (2016) with Tobydog Tape (pre-2007) patches

This is the new Kevin tape, recovered last year and released for the very first time, it’s been merged with the Tobydog tape and we now have a 100% complete recording and the majority of it is now in higher quality. Only one song is truncated/removed, all of the show content is restored. The band prove to be solid guests and are making their only known appearance on CLL.

From WikiLocal H is an American rock band originally formed by guitarist and vocalist Scott Lucas, bassist Matt Garcia, drummer Joe Daniels, and lead guitarist John Sparkman in Zion, Illinois in 1987. The members all met in high school in 1987 and founded Local H three years later.

After Sparkman’s departure in 1991 and Garcia’s departure in 1993, Local H signed a record contract with Island Records in 1994 as a duo, where they would go on to release three albums. They became best known for their radio hit “Bound for the Floor“, a single from the 1996 album As Good as Dead which peaked at No. 5 on the US Alternative Billboard Chart. The album As Good As Dead was also certified gold. Daniels was replaced by Brian St. Clair in 1999, and the group has since issued five further albums. Brian St. Clair’s last show with Local H was in 2013.[1] In November 2013 Ryan Harding was announced as the new drummer.[2]

According to the band’s Twitter account, its name comes from combining two R.E.M. songs: “Oddfellows Local 151” and “Swan Swan H”.[3]

GLL Episode 786

CLL #786 (feat. Cypress Hill) – 10/04/1998 – Sunday Night Show

Source – The Lost Batch of Tapes (2017) with a Tobydog Tape (2008) Patch

This is the new Tape from that Top-Secret Stash we just acquired, there is a 20 second chunk patched in from an old Tobydog Tape that I may have transferred 9 years ago. The band are making what seems to be their 2nd appearance of the Adam era, the band’s previous episode if it exists is still lost to time, perhaps from 95 or 96. They have 8 more appearances on CLL during Adam’s run, between now and 2005. Cypress Hill were some of the most frequent and solid Loveline guests in the show’s history, pre-and post Adam era. This episode is great, it sounds better than ever and the missing 4 minutes have been restored.

GLL Episode 785

CLL #785 (feat. The Love Between The Two Hosts) – 10/01/1998 – Thursday Night Show

Source – Kevin Tape (2016) merged with a JBJ Tape (2008)

This is the new Kevin tape, recovered last year and released for the very first time, The JBJ tape was used for select patches throughout. The episode now has over 3 minutes of the missing 5 restored, now just missing at most 90-120 seconds of content from the cold opening of the episode with the first caller. Originally labeled as ‘Crap of the 80’s’ and ‘Adam Sings’ by JBJ, a fantastic episode with lots of fun between the boys, including engineer Mike. If you love Adam mocking music from the 1980’s this is your episode, hilarious!

GLL Episode 783

CLL #783 (feat. The Flys) – 09/29/1998 – Tuesday Night Show

Source – TobyDog Tape (pre-2007) 

This is the only known copy of this show, it’s missing roughly 5 to 7 minutes, the band are making their first of two visits to LoveLine, they return one more time for CLL #933 in April of 1999. They had a song on the ‘Disturbing Behavior’ soundtrack and their voices are similar to Criss Angel. They’re brothers and overall solid guests.

LoveLineTapes

Original notes I wrote about a decade ago.

The two guests are great, they are brothers who started a band.
I only remember that they had a song on the “Disturbing Behavior” soundtrack, nonetheless the guys are fantastic.

They discuss their Bizarre childhood(s) and their father, a traveling physician/surfer.

The guests are very smart and lay out some ideas and advice that Drew and Adam agree with.

Adam has tons of funny moments this show, the guys really seem to dig his humor.

Both the brothers accents sound like a cross between “Criss Angel and Tom Burbine” it’s hilarious!!

GLL Episode 782

CLL #782 (feat. Fart Lighting) – 09/28/1998 – Monday Night Show

Source – DAT Tape (2017)

This is the rarest of all of the tapes, if only a VHS could be recovered showing the security video, that would be the only greater find. The audio is without comparison and this replaces the old TobyDog Tape from before 2007. This is what I’ve been working on, Adam’s Assterpiece and the first attempt of on air Fart Lighting. “Special guest tonight… My ass. Doin’ more talking than a lot of our guests do” – Adam

Sorry ’bout DAT file size!

GLL Episode 781

CLL #781 (feat. The Love Between The Two Hosts) – 09/27/1998 – Sunday Night Show

Source – TobyDog Tape (2008)

This is the only known source, a TobyDog tape possibly transferred by me nearly a decade ago, the show is nearly complete just missing a few seconds in a couple of spots.  Adam shares the Tim The Russian Rapper story, Adam and Drew are fresh from Syracuse. This show is full of rare old stories and long lost one time only mentions from both hosts, do not miss it!

 LoveLineTapes

 

The original notes either UnclePenny or I wrote about a decade ago

Great Show! Includes some garlic belching and a great telling of the Tim the Russian rapper story along with some other great, somewhat rare stories.

The show starts right off with the first call. Adam belches up some garlic and says belching is to vomiting as farting is to crapping.

Adam and Drew just got back from Syracuse, NY (AKA “Christland” according to Bobcat Goldthwait).

They missed their flight on Thursday morning.

Adam says he raced over to Drew’s house and Drew asked him to come in to see a picture of his daughter even though they were already running 10 minutes late. Adam actually had to stall the next plane so they’d still get there with enough time to spare.

Drew tells Adam to give out the phone number even though he did a just few minutes ago.

A girl said she used to play “The Fonz,” a disturbing game with her cousins.

Adam says Cameron Diaz used Jimmy’s word “Jackhole” in her Saturday Night Live monologue.
A trucker named “Hammer Down Matt” calls in. He uses some odd trucker lingo such as calling his wife “old lady” and calling his son “the kid.”

Drew asks a girl an A or B question about acid and her response was yes. She doesn’t sound too bright.

Adam announces they will gamble when they come back from a break. Drew says he only has a quarter and ruins the whole set up.

Adam burps up his garlic again. He recalls once dumping garlic powder on a pizza and Drew not wanting to eat it because he gets so gassy from it.
A Lenny Kravitz bumper is played and Adam says he likes the riff. A caller requested Tim the Russian rapper so that is teased before taking a call. Adam then has another belch come up and subjects Drew to the horrible smell.

Adam goes to set up Tim the Russian Rapper but has to yell at Drew for saying he does it when they speak publicly. Adam goes through the history of how he got to know Tim through the Catholic Big Brother program. There is a bit of overlappage from earlier in the show so feel free to skip ahead to about 1:16:00 to continue right on with the story. Adam includes some rare details in this telling of the story. His comedy troupe, ACME Theatre was at a Christmas party one year and Adam was asked to get involved with the Big Brother program. Adam asks Drew to take kill some time while he takes a swig of his water before doing the impression. Drew inhales like he’s trying to think of something to say but then Adam jumps back in. Another rare detail is that Tim wore a pot leaf shirt and would use the word dope very often. Adam would screw with him and use the word out of context.

Another good story is the one about Adam’s senior prom date. It’s wasn’t told very often on Loveline.
She was really good looking but passed away shortly after high school. Drew reveals he had severe mono at his senior prom, walked in with a cane and had to leave early so he could go to sleep. Adam then talks about his something his friend Carl did. Adam wrote down all the sexual things he wanted to do to his prom date on a piece of paper and Carl actually gave the paper to the girl. It was really just redemption for Adam throwing a lemon with a firecracker stuffed inside of it into his apartment, making a huge mess.

There is some more garlic belching.

Adam makes fun of Drew for going to his kids’ open house and ice skating practice right after getting back from a four-day trip with him. Producer Ann chimes in and says Adam would feel different if he had kids. Adam then calls her the Zamboni Queen.

Caller Phil cannot tell the difference between Tylenol and Aspirin and it Drives them nuts because he can’t answer their questions.
A clip of the House of Pain Song Jump Around is played. Adam says that was Tim’s rap and Drew says “Whaaa???” Adam screwed up the lyrics earlier but he liked his better.

GLL Episode 780

CLL #780 (feat. Henry Rollins) – 09/24/1998 – Thursday Night Show

Source – Kevin Tape (2017) with TobyDog Tape (pre-2007) patches

This is the new Kevin Tape with some patches from the older transfer, 13 of the missing 15 minutes have been restored and the show is nearly complete and just missing about 2 minutes from the beginning. Henry is a lot harder on Adam in this episode than he is during later visits, he’s making his 2nd known appearance of the Adam era and has 5 more appearances between this show and 2002 for his final visit of the Adam era. Some listeners found Henry to be a dick others thought he was just not into Adam’s fart humor, once again decide for yourself. Adam reveals the real reason he was kicked out of his dad’s house, that alone is worth a listen. Adam and Drew are in Green Bay Wisconsin and Henry is back at Westwood One, he only stays for the first hour despite being over 1k miles away from Adam’s gas. This episode is as fresh of the presses as they come with a redo on a Kevin Tape to get some missing content, I had to unpack and sort through 1k tapes then pack them up again, brutal! This episode took 21hrs of work to restore.

GLL Episode 779

CLL #779 (feat. The Love Between The Two Hosts) – 09/23/1998 – Wednesday Night Show

Source  Kevin Tape (2016) with TobyDog (pre-2007) Patches

This is a new merging of two sources, the show is now complete with the missing 5+ minutes restored and somehow extra hilarious! Adam and Drew riff about trying to explain prohibition to aliens and Adam has two specific hilarious interactions with callers, pay attention! Adam Sings, all around terrific “Love Between The Two Hosts” LoveLine at it’s best. The show was previously mislabeled as a JBJ show but it was in fact a Tobydog Recording I didn’t get to transfer, the quality was rough. Now with the quality upgrade the show plays “funnier” perhaps because you don’t need to filter out the noise to focus on the comedy.
