This is a 100% Complete brand new transfer of the only known recording, long misdated as 1997, now correctly titled and shared in proper release order. Adam attempts to make this an “explosive” show and the Cake guys are once again solid guests, one of them has a very rare photograph of the festivities inside the studio.
This is a 100% Complete brand new merging of the only two known sources, both from Arizona oddly enough. Previously we only had 52 minutes of the episode but now the lost 43 minutes have been restored, in the partial episode we previously had Shae was a really solid guest, lots of contributions adding to the flow and comedy of the episode. This is Shae’s only known appearance on Loveline.

This is a 99% Complete copy of a long lost episode, replacing a duplicate of a 1998 appearance incorrectly listed on LoveLinetapes. Bad Religion have 7 more known appearances during the Adam Carolla era. This episode seems to be a gem and is only missing the closing “goodbye” segment.
From Wiki: Bad Religion is an American punk rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1980. They make extensive use of three-part vocal harmonies (which they refer to in their album liner notes as the “oozin’ aahs”) and guitar solos, and are known for their lyrics, which cover topics such as criticism of religion, political commentary and social responsibility. The band’s lineup has changed several times over its lifespan, with lead vocalist Greg Graffin being the only consistent member; the current lineup, however, features three of the band’s four original members (Graffin, Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley). To date, Bad Religion has released sixteen studio albums, two live albums, three compilation albums, three EPs (one of which is composed of covers of Christmas songs) and two DVDs (which were both recorded live). They are considered to be one of the best-selling punk rock acts of all time, having sold over five million albums worldwide.
Bad Religion had built an underground following in the United States with their early albums (including Suffer, No Control, Against the Grain and Generator) before signing to Atlantic Records in 1993. They rose to fame that same year with their seventh studio album and major-label debut Recipe for Hate, which peaked at number 14 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers chart.Recipe for Hate was followed a year later by Stranger than Fiction, which spawned their biggest hits “Infected” and the re-recorded version of “21st Century (Digital Boy)“, and was certified gold in both the United States and Canada. Shortly before the release of Stranger than Fiction, Gurewitz left Bad Religion to run his label Epitaph on a full-time basis, and was replaced by Brian Baker. Since Gurewitz’s return to the band in 2001, they have undergone a resurgence in popularity, with their sixteenth studio album True North (2013) becoming Bad Religion’s first album to crack the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart, where it peaked at number 19. The band is expected to release their seventeenth studio album in 2017 or 2018.
This is a 100% Complete brand new merging of the only two known sources, both from Arizona oddly enough. The episode suffered a power outage early in the show, wreaking havoc on the breaks and satellite timing, this is the 4th known appearance for Jeremy, he visits almost every January or February all the way through 2004. Jeremy has 3 more known appearances, with a total of 7. Adam talks about watching the Canadian version of ‘Cops’ and his days of dirt bike racing. A very solid episode that is among one of the hardest edits to reassemble yet.
From Wiki: Jeremy McGrath (born November 19, 1971 in San Francisco, California) is one of the most popular American Motocross/Supercross champions in the history of the sport, racking up 7 Supercross championships. He was most active in the 1990s earning the title the “King of Supercross.” His tricks during jumps on the supercross track, the most famous of which he called the “Nac Nac”, helped spawn the sport of freestyle motocross. McGrath was AMA Pro Athlete of the Year Award in 1996. Still competitive in Motorcycle racing, he has tried his hand in many types of motorcycle competition. Lately he has expanded into off-road trucks in the Pro 2WD division of the LOORS Series and occasionally tries his hand at stock car racing. McGrath lives in Southern California with his wife Kim and daughters Rhowan and Bergen. McGrath has the privilege of being the first rookie ever to win the AMA 250cc Supercross Championship, in 1993.

This is the only know source for an episode I first transferred over seven years ago, it’s 100% complete.

Source –JBJ Tape (2008) with Tobydog Tape (2007) patches
This is a brand new merging for this wonderful episode. Using the incorrectly dated JBJ tape for the base and the Toby tape to cover up some heavy static and a few missing holes. Adam and Drew are in rare form with “Cum Stones”, “Groom You For His Abuse Farm” and “They do have washing machines. They have women. They’re washing machines you can have sex with.” Plus Adam tells the story of defecating in a decorative popcorn tin. Episodes #844 and #845 are still lost to time, but we do know that Best Of was programmed for holidays, it was up to the affiliates to choose to play them or not, so this is definitely #846 and somewhere out there #844 and #845 are rotting in a dump/transmitting across the universe. We do not have to renumber 2635 shows, rejoice! 100% Complete Episode.
UnclePenny’s LoveLineTapes Notes: This is a bit of an odd show seeing how it was just 2 days after Christmas. It really is a great show though, definitely worth a listen. Drew brought some of those stupid Furby toys into the studio. He set them next the mic so people could hear them but Adam asks engineer Mike to shut the mic off. A couple minutes later he has to ask him again.
Drew just got back from a trip to Beaver Creek with his family. Adam explains why he doesn’t like skiing and skiers. Halfway into the first call Drew is forced to smother the furbies once again to stop making noise. A caller brings up Adam doing Dingle Boy. Sherry gets on the mic and explains that she would wear an engagement ring along with her wedding band but was too poor to afford both. She speaks a couple times in this show. Adam calls the two month’s salary tip for buying a ring recockulous. He compares it to the 3,000 mile oil changes that could be stretched out a couple more thousand.
Drew tells a girl that she is being groomed for an “abuse farm.” Engineer Mike says that Drew bought him a very nice pocket watch for Christmas. Meanwhile Adam got him a decorative popcorn tin. I believe this triggers the first popcorn tin reference. It sounds like the first one because Drew is shocked at him crapping in it.
A great South Park intro is played. Adam announces Producer Ann is on vacation. He got her some sea salts for Christmas.
Dr. Drew says he ran into Mrs. Fields at the airport, yes Mrs. Fields from the cookies they sell in vending machines. She has 10 kids and is actually pretty good looking. The next call is one of the most bizarre ones I’ve heard. A guy named Art is 75 years old! Possible the oldest caller ever.
In 1998 a caller named Eva was 73. Art says he smokes weed out of a pipe with a doctors prescription to stop leg pains. His wife died in 1996 and he’s now dating a 43 year old and she wants
him to get circumcised.
Adam mentions Christof, his German brother in-law. He complains how Stone Stanley gave him a $1000 Christmas bonus but KROQ did nothing and MTV gave him socks and didn’t invite them to the Christmas party. He talks about covering the OJ Simpson trial and not being reimbursed for an $18 parking fee. Adam tells a story about sneaking into the Weeze’s refrigerator and getting caught by the dad named Stan. Caller Kim’s boyfriend has a tattoo of a barcode. The artist said as long as the needle didn’t have dried blood on it then he would be safe. Adam asks a question about genocide which makes Drew dig out the dictionary and look up the definition.
An intro by the Nelson twins is played. Adam says they were nice guys but it was very uncomfortable when a clip of him bashing Gunner was played.
This was when one of the Morrell twins said she
was dating him. This show with the Morrell twins is now available. So I guess it turns out it was Engineer Mike and not Anderson that
played this trick on Adam. There’s a cool promo for Monday Night Football but then they guy says “Join me, Ted Stryker…” A caller says Adam was hitting on his cousin. They were actually good friends back in the day. There’s a funny drop of Victoria Jackson saying “there’s something wrong with his testicles?”

Holiday Best Of was typically edited in batches of 5, it’s unclear if they aired best of on Christmas Eve and/or Christmas, many affiliates aired other content, often Christmas themed music/religious stuff. For the sake of the numbering of the show we cannot remove any dates from the possible episode list, at some point we will remove all best of episodes from the official Total Production Number of original episodes.

UnclePenny’s LoveLineTape Notes: The first guest is Cypress Hill. Adam says B-Real is starting to look like an accountant. He announces he has become a conservative stoner.
Caller Tera corrects Adam when he calls her Tara.
A guy named Scott says they do a sick show. Drew asks gets a bit confused by his comment. Here’s how it sounded:
Scott: I also want to say to Dr. Drew and Adam, you guys do a sick show.
Drew: Is that a good thing?
Adam: That’s good.
The next guest is Gary Busey. When they go into the segment, Drew is talking on the phone in the other room.
A 16 year old guy has a job working at a lamp store. Adam says he wouldn’t know how to react if someone told him they work at a lamp store.
The next guest is Everlast. This segment doesn’t seem familiar so it may not be in the 37 minute long version.
Adam does his Tim (Teeem) the Russian Rapper impersonation. Adam says it was funny when they went to the beach because Nate was really skinny and Tim weighed about 250 pounds. On the way to the beach, they’d listen to rap music in Adam’s truck and he’d rap along. Adam does the two rhymes Tim would often do and Everlast says he may sample him on his next record.
Chris Kattan is the next guest.
Adam says they were recently in Syracuse, NY. They were speaking at Syracuse University and Drew accidently offended allot of the students after the first question. Adam says the rest of the thing was just him picking up the pieces.
A girl says she’s seen Chris’s movie in the theatre 4 times.
Adam and Drew are going to be traveling soon. Adam suggests they don’t talk while on the road. Drew brings up how he never shuts up when they’re on a plane and Adam says he’ll make an exception on the no talking rule for plane rides.
The Goo Goo Dolls are the next guest. Adam asks Drew if he should be touching the monitor screen because it’s going to have to last Westwood None for a long time.
The first caller says Drew is cute but Adam is a pimp. A Goo Goo Dolls song is played.
The last guest is Caroline Rhea. She says whenever she goes to speak at colleges all the posters say her show is free. Adam says they were DeKalb……… and a girl stood up and asked a question in an interesting way.
A caller says he has a way for Adam to finally get the video “Spank Me, F Me.” The video apparently stars Kayla Cleavage and Minka.

This is George’s 2nd known episode, both in character and both times joining the show remotely from a different coast, coast to coast indeed! George only breaks character once and it’s because of Adam delivering a hilarious one liner, great episode. This is a new merging of the JBJ Tape and an Unknown recording, restoring over 10 minutes of lost content, the show starts in progress.
Lowe did occasional voice-over work for TBS throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, as well as occasional voice-overs for Cartoon Network in the mid 1990s. Lowe’s career as a voice actor officially began in 1994 with the premiere of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, in which he starred as the lead role of Space Ghost. Space Ghost Coast to Coast finished a ten-year run of new episodes on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim in 2004, and was revived on Gametap for 2 seasons during 2006–2008 for an additional 16 episodes.
This is a new Lost Tape and Kevin Tape merged with the older TobyDog Tape to complete the recording, Adam goes off on Barney’s Of New York and John tells the gang about his parents.

This is a new Kevin Tape. Adam predates ‘The Friend Zone’ with FriendVille, Drew says the night before he almost stopped caring about the show because they were so out of it.
UnclePenny’s LoveLineTapes Notes: Drew says the night before he almost stopped caring about the show because they were so out of it.
Adam and Drew were listening to the show where Adam lit his farts and mention they will put it on one of the best of shows coming up over the holiday break. Adam threatens to smack Drew in the back of the head for eating a throat lozenge.
Engineer Mike says Drew was spilling coffee all over the place from laughing so hard during the lit farts show and had to leave the room.
Caller Ann is an incredibly dumb caller. She is in
college and messing around with her boss. Here are a couple of the things they ask her.
Drew: Is he a student there?
Ann: Yeah, I’m a student.
Adam: Are your mom and dad still together?
Adam: Do you like him?
Ann: My boss?
Caller Angela is a stripper. She cannot understand why guys like going to strip clubs so Adam has to explain it to her.
Caller Mike is suspected of using a false name. He is asked to spell Michael and he screws it up/messes with them because he’s so high. When Adam asks what his question is he says he forgot.
A guy calls in who is an air traffic controller. Adam goes to use the reverb button but then finds out there is another button that makes it sounds like he’s on a phone.
Adam says his sister is coming back from Germany. She just bought a house and is going to have Adam start working on it.
A stripper calls in to yell at Adam and Drew for calling strippers abused. Adam has Drew’s mic shut off so he can talk to her alone. He tells Drew to go do something while he’s talking to her. It turns out the caller dated a 19 year old when she was 15 and the guy drowned.
Adam takes another stab at engineer Mike’s army cot apartment. Later he talks about being on the show Two guys, a girl and a pizza place.
At the end of the show Adam punches up
everyone on hold and tells them they can’t talk because the show’s over and hangs up on them.
At the very end they mention their episodes of Space Ghost will be aired soon.

This is a new Kevin Tape Upgrade
UnclePenny’s LoveLineTapes Notes: This is a great no guest show. It is actually a more complete version of the show labeled 11/xx/1998 with 73 year old caller Eva. There are also allot of callers who are dumber than usual.
The guest for this show is the “love that the hosts find between the two of them.”
Apparently a dentist called earlier who offered to bleach Adam’s teeth for free over the holiday break. Before Adam can start ranting about dentists and the garbage men that come to his house, Drew takes a call. It sounds like the caller is playing the wooden block game Jenga. She won’t fess up to there being a ton of noise in the background. She is nothing but trouble for the rest of the call and ends up getting put on hold.
The next couple callers are just complainers about how the show is handled.
The next caller is a gay German/Irish chef and sounds like he’s going to come through and get the show back on track but he drops the F bomb twice in about 30 seconds and is put on hold as well. What’s odd about this guy is that he has the male equivalent of the little girl voice that is heard so much. He has some really bizarre stories to tell about his past.
Adam says something about the band Goldfinger and Drew says “no way!” like he’s really interested in the band.
Adam makes fun of engineer Mike’s army cot in his apartment. This causes him to play the “and that’s funny why???” drop.
This show has the return of 73 year old caller Eva. She talks about her 6 week honeymoon and using a series of graduated glass cylinders. She also reveals she’s been married 4 times. Adam offers to set her up with engineer Mike.
Adam compares doing comedy for Drew is like doing comedy for a raccoon.
Adam talks about kids having braces and how kids with headgear got made fun of. During the next break Drew tells Adam he used to wear a hear set when he was 9 years old.
When he talks about wearing it to school Adam makes fun of his albino hemophiliac school.
A caller by the name of Stacy drops another F bomb and the whole word gets through. A drop is played where Adam once said the F word on the air and it got bleeped out. A recording of this show doesn’t seem to exist though. The girl’s 23 year old boyfriend has been working at McDonalds for a year and hasn’t gotten a promotion. Adam then goes off on how much he resented his former boss Ken when he was working at McDonalds.

UnclePenny’s LoveLineTapes Notes: The night Adam’s ep of Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza place aired, Adam finds it shocking that nobody at westwood 1,2,none saw the episode, Produ”C”er Ann chimes and says she even skipped 90210 in order to watch it and she thought he was great.
Adam explains why he didn’t want a tape of the episode, he wanted a recording with the commercials and the network promos, he thinks that adds the surreal element to it on later viewings.
A caller brings up Dr. Judy a former radio “Doctor” and Drew lets out a knowing “eewwwoooohhhhhh” noise.
Adam tells the 1994 earthquake/face herpes story to Drew, this may be the very first telling because Drew reacts to it and shoots holes in Adam’s theory of breathing in ancient dust that caused his face herpes.
Adam also tells the full “Terry Mosier Street Fight” story in detail, Adam tells it in full detail with both the make out party and truck sale/fat mexican moving in, Adam refers to this story as the “Kung Fu Theater” story and reveals that it was broken up by the police.
Adam and Drew compare there sweating frequency, Adam gets pissed cause Drew never sweat and makes a hilarious comment about Drew sunning himself on a rock to get warm like a lizard.
Adam discusses running into Salma Hayek at the MTV awards and how she approached him and couldn’t stop talking about how her boyfriend is in love with Adam, Adam then comments that they can surely get her on the show now but Ann chimes in and say maybe the boyfriend, Adam “…My first question would be, can I smell your penis”.

Source –Lost Tape (2017) with Kevin Tape (2016) and TobyDog Tape Patches
This is a new Lost Tape restoring the lost 24 minutes of show content, the episode is now complete and sounds insanely great. Ryan is making his 1st of 2 appearances on CLL, he returns in 2002. This is the show I tried to get to the Deadpool producers, as LoveLine was originally featured in several drafts of the screenplay for the film, too late I guess. Dingo Boy is discussed.
From Wiki: Two Guys and a Girl (originally titled Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place) is an American sitcom created by Kenny Schwartz and Danny Jacobson. It was originally broadcast on ABC from March 10, 1998, to May 16, 2001. Eighty-one episodes were aired over four seasons.
The series stars Ryan Reynolds, Traylor Howard and Richard Ruccolo as the title characters. The second season saw the arrival of two additional recurring characters, Johnny Donnelly (Nathan Fillion) and Ashley Walker (Suzanne Cryer). In 2000, ABC bounced the sitcom from midweek to Friday night, leading to a steep drop in ratings. After the show moved back to Wednesday for a two-week trial in an unsuccessful attempt to regain ratings, it was cancelled in May 2001. The series finale was titled “The Internet Show”, an episode in which fans of the show voted on the outcome online.
Unclepenny’s LoveLineTape Notes: This show starts right before the first commercial break so its missing around 20 minutes.
A caller mentions “dingo boy” a bit Adam did for a syndicated radio service prior to his involvement with Loveline, even Dr.Drew has never heard of it, after persistence from Drew, Traylor and Ryan Adam finally gives a detailed explanation of Dingo Boy and sings the Ding Boy theme song which is hilarious.
Trya Banks crush on Dr. Drew is brought up and Adam goes off on Radio personalities and the reason they are in radio and not on television.
Ryan and Traylor are great guests, a great call from a young man who tried to kill himself with a electrical cord after his last call into Loveline.
Adam pitches his Idea of female genitalia bikini bottoms that would have antatomy charts on them similar to the T-shirts with pictures of all the organs.
Dr. Drew drops an F bomb its hard to tell cause Mike drops out a lot of the audio as opposed to one of his or Anderson’s typical quick surgical style edits he must have been caught off guard.
Adam talks about his power going out, Ryan discusses how he watched all 90 minutes of the last episode of NYPD blue with Jimmy Smitts and his power went out right before he died.
Ian “..oh am I on the radio?” Adam “..no I’m in the next room you jackass”.
Caller Ian had a “romantic” dream about his friends sister, this inspires Adam to go off on how when he has a sex dream about a woman it somehow makes him believe that he is that much closer to getting her in real life.
Adam is guesting in the upcoming episode of Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place and it is discusses throughout the show.
Adam and Drew discuss doing the lost and final episode of “Fired Up” a sitcom co starring Leah Remini and how they never saw the episode and it never aired on television(I think it may have run years later in syndication).
Ryan mentions he did an episode of the John Laraquette show that never made it to air but he got a VHS copy of it and was able to see it.
Adam mentions that Lynette had got a copy of the episode about a week ago but he is waiting until it airs to watch it, Adam and Drew both admit they dont own one copy of Loveline the TV show or Loveline the radio show.
Adam and Ryan do dueling Steve Irwin impressions, Its so funny.
This is a new Lost Tape for a show I first recovered almost a decade ago, we now have the best possible audio. Terry and Adam have great chemistry and Terry even says she would go out with Adam, awesome episode! Now 100% Complete with all missing content restored, the Tobydog Tape was missing somewhere between 25-47 minutes of show content, so this is a huge recovery for a single episode.

This is a new Lost Tape replacing a static heavy JBJ Tape, huge audio upgrade with the best possible quality ever, other than getting in a time machine and joining them in studio. The Guests are fairly quiet, promoting the show ‘The Nanny’ on CBS.

From Wiki: The Nanny is an American television sitcom which originally aired on CBS from 1993 to 1999, starring Fran Drescher as Fran Fine, a Jewish fashion queen from Flushing, New York who becomes the nanny of three children from the New York/British high society.
The show was created and produced by Drescher and her husband Peter Marc Jacobson, taking much of its inspiration from Drescher’s personal life growing up in Queens, involving names and characteristics based on her relatives and friends. The show earned a Rose d’Or and one Emmy Award, out of a total of twelve nominations, and Drescher was twice nominated for a Golden Globe and an Emmy. The sitcom has also spawned several foreign adaptations, loosely inspired by the original scripts.

Although he was successful, Ice later regretted his business arrangements with SBK, which had paid him to adopt a more commercial appearance to appeal to a mass audience and published fabricated biographical information without his knowledge. After surviving a suicide attempt, Ice was inspired to change his musical style and lifestyle. While his later, less mainstream albums failed to chart or receive much radio airplay, Ice has had a loyal underground following. In 2009, Ice began hosting The Vanilla Ice Project on DIY Network.

Henton is an avid Cleveland Browns fan, as noted on the television series, Living Single. Henton never entertained the thought of a career in comedy. In 1982, while working during the day and studying computer science at night, Henton was urged by a co-worker to try his jokes at a local comedy club’s amateur night. By his second night, Henton won the amateur night contest and began stand-up part-time. Henton made the move to Los Angeles in 1985 and by 1988, started his stand-up career full-time.
After taking his comedy on the road for a year and winning the 1991 Johnny Walker National Comedy Search, Henton was spotted by The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson comedy executive Jim McCawley, who booked him for a performance on the show. As he finished his set, Henton looked to Carson for his approval and received much more. Henton was called over to take a seat on the coveted couch where Carson asked him if he had an agent. To Henton’s reply of “no”, Carson mugged, “Well you will after tonight.” It was a performance which Henton says gave his career a “serious jump-start.”
In September 2000 Henton was involved in a serious car accident that “destroyed his left eye socket, shattered both of his legs, broke nine teeth and ripped up his stomach.” The actor’s face was badly deformed by the incident, though extensive plastic surgery restored most of his facial structure.
Henton currently resides in Los Angeles. He spends his free time with his young daughter Nicole Simone Henton.

Source –Kevin Tape (2016) with Tobydog Tape (2012) Patches
This is a new Lost Tape for a previously incomplete show, now almost complete with the missing 17 minutes restored to the running time, the show starts in progess with about 60sec of missing content. Jerry Springer and Wendy Raquel Robinson are both making their only known appearances during the Adam Carolla era.
From Wiki: Ringmaster There are three ongoing plots in the film. The primary one surrounds a white trash, trailer park family in which the daughter is sleeping with her mother’s husband, prompting the mother to constantly try to outdo her promiscuous daughter’s behavior out of spite, including sleeping with her daughter’s boyfriend. The secondary plot revolves around an urbanblack woman whose boyfriend is sleeping with her two best friends, but the three are united against the boyfriend when he begins sleeping with the daughter of the above-mentioned family. The third plot revolves around Jerry and the show itself, detailing the difficulty Jerry faces in trying to come to terms with his rather dubious claim to fame, and the staff’s utter amazement at the bizarre stories they must deal with.
A minor sub-plot involves a producer on the show who mistakenly picks up one of the guests, a self-proclaimed “man-by-day-woman-by-night.”
– Wendy Raquel Robinson is also in the studio
– Adam wants Jerry to implant Norplant to every guest on his show, even males.
– Drew talks about taking his kids to the Rugrats movie sneak preview
– Conan won’t fly Adam and Drew out to NY even though they want them on the show next week
– Caller Max says “Screw you Drew,” not the drop though
– Adam yells at Drew for his squeaky chair
– Drew tries to make a movie or TV reference and completely butchers it.
– The chairs on-set of the Jerry Springer show should probably be bolted down…
– Last night all the breaks were taken exactly on the second they’re supposed to be done (Adam was out)
– Jerry says the chairs are safe because there are cops on-set.
– Caller has been listening since the Poorman-era and says Adam is way better in her opinion
– Adam’s bizarre dream last night, driving home from the “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place,” taping at 2am and passed by several Psycho billboards. She dreamt Anne Heche trying to stab him several times even though he got to have sex with her. Jerry wants to get Adam and Ann on his show ASAP.
– Jerry and Wendy leave after the first hour and will tape the MTV Loveline show on Friday
– Some “Blur” bashing, says the name was based on how easy it is to say after waking up from a drunken stupor
– Drew says that the most popular program in prisons is COPS.
– Tap water PSA clip (Adam PSA rant ensues)
– Talk about Adam’s “Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place” Adam comes up with a great line, way better than the written line, ties into what they’re trying to get across, but they can’t do it because it used the word “Jesus.” Adam goes off on them referencing the scientology letter incident from 1997. This rant is a good 7+ minutes long, gold.

From Wiki: Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson (born 18 July 1950) is an English business magnate, investor and philanthropist. He founded the Virgin Group, which controls more than 400 companies.
Branson expressed his desire to become an entrepreneur at a young age. At the age of sixteen his first business venture was a magazine called Student. In 1970, he set up a mail-order record business. In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores. Branson’s Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic airline and expanded the Virgin Records music label.
In March 2000, Branson was knighted at Buckingham Palace for “services to entrepreneurship”. For his work in retail, music and transport (with interests in land, air, sea and space travel), his taste for adventure, and for his humanitarian work, he became one of the most prominent figures in British culture. In 2002 he was named in the BBC’s poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. In January 2016, Forbes listed Branson’s estimated net worth at $5.2 billion.

From Wiki: Win Ben Stein’s Money was an American television game show created by Al Burton and Donnie Brainard that aired first-run episodes from July 28, 1997 to January 31, 2003 on the Comedy Central cable network, with repeat episodes airing until May 8, 2003. The show featured three contestants who competed to answer general knowledge questions in order to win the grand prize of $5,000 from the show’s host, Ben Stein. In the second half of each episode, Stein participated as a “common” contestant in order to defend his money from being taken by his competitors. The show won six Daytime Emmy awards, with Stein and Jimmy Kimmel, the show’s original co-host, sharing the Outstanding Game Show Host award in 1999.
As noted in a disclaimer during the closing credits, prize money won by contestants was paid from a prize budget furnished by the producers of the show. Any money left over in that budget at the end of a season was given to Stein. If the total amount paid out during a season exceeded that budget, the production company paid the excess. In this way, Stein was never in any danger of losing money from his own pocket.
Stein’s co-host was Jimmy Kimmel for the first three years. Kimmel left in 2000 and was replaced by Nancy Pimental, who co-hosted the program through 2001. Kimmel’s cousin, Sal Iacono, who took over the role in 2002, was the show’s last co-host. Although Kimmel left the program in 2000, he occasionally made guest appearances afterward, and hosted College Week episodes in 2001.

Andy is joined by his band members from ‘The Bitches of the Century’ and they play live in studio. Dr. Drew examines a caller’s penis during the 2nd break. Only missing a few seconds before the 2nd hour affiliate identification break, sadly it wasn’t present in the Kevin Tape nor the existing TobyDog Tape.

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 Wiki: Local 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. In November 2013 Ryan Harding was announced as the new drummer.
According to the band’s Twitter account, its name comes from combining two R.E.M. songs: “Oddfellows Local 151” and “Swan Swan H”.

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.

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!
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.

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.
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.

Lauer is the Founder President & CEO of ReelAid, a non-profit organization made up of filmmakers from the Hollywood community producing low to no-cost promotional videos for other non-profit organizations who in turn use them to fund-raise and create public awareness.
This is the newly discovered Kevin Tape, with Toby patches. Updated last minute and replacing the incomplete file. Steve Harwell from the band is making his 3rd appearance on the show, this time solo. After accosting Adam about never getting booked they’re finally having him back on, proving they do love the guy.

The show starts already in progress, both recordings. The episode starts out with about 30min of Dub C from CLL #684 (feat. WC), next up is Semisonic from CLL #649 (feat.

Larry Flynt is the 3rd guest from a lost episode making his debut appearance, telling Adam about ‘Tips and Tricks’ and his other non-pornographic publications, the episode seems to be from 1997, possibly CLL #351 from Feb. 2nd 1997, as Adam received his Busty subscription a week later on CLL #358. Next Up is Sublime from CLL #227 (feat. Sublime) from Aug. 12th 1996. Next up is a lost clip from what seems to be a lost episode with The Goo Goo Dolls and Dr. Marcel from what I suspect is CLL #480 the Day after Rick Ocasek from July 31st 1997.
Old Notes written by myself or Unclepenny from a decade ago found on LovelineTapes
“This show starts just a few minutes late. It’s a great show with some good, classic stories.
The first guest is WC, or “Dub-C.” His pager goes off and Adam threatens to take it. He then drops an “S” bomb before offering to put Adam on his next album. This causes Adam to tell the great story of Tim (Teeeem) the Russian rapper Catholic little brother of his. Engineer Mike plays some House of Pain but Adam says he wants to go
Adam asks why the black man likes the big ass and gets a pretty good explanation.
WC asks phone screener Sherry if her breasts are real.
Adam asks to get some black to white translations on some of WC’s Ebonics. Adam then busts a rhyme about the behymen.
A formerly fat girl calls in with the worst line ever. WC admits he likes big women.
The next guest is the band Semisonic. It sounds like there was some previous conversation about why UPS uses the color brown. A kid calls in and says he talked to a UPS lady that explained it was so if they got dirt on their uniforms it wouldn’t show up. After Adam praises UPS, Drew says they use Fed-ex. This reminds Adam of the whole Mountain Dew fiasco. He tells the story about getting yelled at on the plane about it. It sounds
like this happened sometime in 1997.
Drew talks about the time he discussed being assaulted on a Southwest flight on the air. The next day he was handed a transcript of the show.
The first two callers have an attitude problem and are punished by being put on hold.
Adam has had a somewhat eerie day. He describes a couple bizarre things that occurred.
One is that he’s is having his friend Daniel (Kellison?) staying over at his house. He left Adams house to go the office but was late showing up.
When his wife called they joked about him getting in an accident and it turns out he actually did get in one.
The second thing involves Adam stopping by an awning shop. His neighbor was on the phone talking about her broken awning that Adam saw just one day earlier. He then explained to the guy what was wrong with it.
The next guest is Larry Flint. While introducing the segment it is revealed that they were at the MTV music awards.
Right off the bat Adam has Larry name off all the different porn magazines he publishes. This is the show where Adam asks for a discount for Busty magazine. Larry says he’ll give him a free subscription. On a later show Adam talks about how the magazine never showed up at first but then eventually did.
Some girl calls in with an somewhat angry complaint to Adam calling people fat. Naturally the “You’re fat,” OOC Drew Drop is played. Larry talks about putting a big girl in a magazine and having hundreds of people cancel their subscriptions.
Larry describes the penile implant he had installed.
The next guest is the band Sublime. It starts with a caller who is having dreams about killing his scoutmaster child molester. This went on for 5 years with about 10 cub scouts.
Drew explains how chemical castration works.
Going into the next break Adam teases talking about the Pennywise incident but the segment is over.
The next guest is the Goo Goo Dolls. Dr. Marcel is subbing for Drew on this show. They start with some carpentry talk and Adam talks about his earthquake rehab work.
The song Lazy Eye is played and they say it came off the Batman soundtrack.”

The second segment with the band Fastball from CLL #631 the night Adam decided on a female listener to drive him to the airport the next morning, this may be a lost clip that didn’t air in the version played prior that needs to edited back into the show. The next segment is Dicky Barrett from CLL #290 which was recorded on 09/26/1996 or it’s from another lost 1997 or 1998 episode. Then it’s CLL #348 from 01/28/1997 with David Arquette and Minnie Driver which aired in the old CLL feed. The next segment is from CLL #515 with Fiona Apple which was recorded on 09/18/1997 and aired in the old feed as well. The final segment is from Andy Dick’s lost LL radio show debut, they mention a 15yr old in studio who was documenting the show for a story, which could possibly help triangulate the recording date.

This is the “new” style of Best Of that Loveline would present when the show’s staff were on vacation and for holiday breaks. The show starts out with a new intro from the guys before the first and second segments, both with Ron Jeremy and Serenity from CLL #663 from 04/14/1998. Next up we have Cypress Hill from their lost 1996 or 1997 visit. The band ‘Sugar Ray’ from either CLL #439 or CLL #541 both episodes from 1997 and both aired in the old CLL feed. The 2nd hour opens with Garbage presumably from CLL #315 from Dec. 1996 which might not have been complete and could be missing this very clip, unless they have a lost 1997 or 1998 appearance which this would also be missing content from. Then we have CLL #697 from 06/01/1998 with Guest Kathy Griffin. The closing Segment is presumably from CLL #340 with Ice T which was recorded on 01/16/1997, unless he too has a lost episode from later in 1997 or in 1998.

Source –Kevin Tape (2016) with TobyDog Tape (Pre – 2007) and a Matchbox 20 Fan Tape from (2010) for patches
This is the new Kevin tape, I patched in the TobyDog tape to fill the holes and a tape sent to us by a fan of the band back in 2010. This is the final show before they take a week off with the new Multi-Segment “Best Of” which would become the standard for the majority of all future replays. This is a hilarious episode, there is another follow up about caller “Michelle” and their blind female detective caller. The band are making their 2nd appearance on CLL and prove to be great guests, both Adam and Drew wanted to go an extra hour as they were having so much fun. The Episode is now 100% complete and all of the missing content has been restored, over 20 new minutes of gold!

Source –Kevin Tape (2016) with TobyDog Tape (Pre – 2007) Patches and DAT Tape (2017) Break Reconstruction
This is the new Kevin tape, I patched in the TobyDog tape to fill the holes and now the show is almost 100% complete, just missing the opening seconds of the first call. The Breaks have all been extended and completed with the best source audio that exists on earth, The Kevin Tape is the body of the show and restored over 45 minutes of content that’s been missing for 18 years. This episode features a Cameo by the infamous Blind Female caller and a follow on the “5-Year-Old with Aids” call from #758. Adam goes off on a bit of a rant about deadbeat dads and the doomed society we were heading towards, solid ep!
This is the new Kevin tape, I patched in the TobyDog tape to fill the holes and now the show is a nearly 100% complete, this is Dana’s CLL debut and only appearance. Possibly due to the heavy call the infamous “5-Year-Old With AIDS” that was unfortunately timed, Dana never heard the follow up call which might have increased the chances of him coming back on. Dana is fresh from the first Season of ‘Working’ on NBC with Fred Savage and promoting his new MTV series ‘Super Adventure Team’ and proves to be a general delight, one of the greatest “one and done” Loveline guests.
Update: The Kevin Tape either has the opening minutes of another episode and then #758 starts two minutes in progress or there is a missing 90 seconds to 3 minutes of #758. It would be an unusual start to have Dana off mic for the first call, if you notice that the opening belongs somewhere else I’ll correct it. For now I’m leaving it as is in case the opening does belong on #758, the tobydog tape is missing the opening 11+ minutes so it’s useless for patching nor even comparison in this case.
One more thing to correct in that “other” Podcast Feed you can gain access to via Patreon.

This is the new Kevin tape merged with the JBJ tape, Howard is making his only appearance of the Adam Carolla era and Loveline, ever. He’s another decent but somewhat reserved and quiet guest. Adam is on fire and hilarious, The episode has now been merged for the very first time and the missing 30+min of content has been restored. You’ve never heard this one before like this since it aired, only missing a few minutes of the first segment.
CLL #756 (feat. Natasha Lyonne) – 08/23/1998 – Sunday Night Show
Source –JBJ Tape (2008) With TobyDog Tape (2007) patches
This is a new transfer of the JBJ tape with some of the old Toby tape woven in which nearly completes the recording, still missing the final goodbye segment. Natasha proved to be a somewhat quiet and slightly antagonistic guest, disagreeing with the guys about childhood trauma. Adam is on point and it’s a funny show, definitely worth a listen and there is an early smoke detector chirp going off, the boys don’t yet time it nor focus in on it to ridicule the caller, sadly. This is Natasha’s only appearance after she guested on the MTV variant of LL prior to this appearance.

This is the new Kevin tape, with the TobyDog tape used to complete the episode. Adam is on top of his game and there are some decent calls, a girl whose father is having sexual dreams about her, an abuse victim with comically delayed responses. Don’t miss this episode. This is the only known appearance of the band on CLL.
CLL #754 (feat. The Crystal Method with Holly Body) – 08/19/1998 – Wednesday Night Show
Source –JBJ Tape (2008) merged with the Kevin Tape (2016) and the TobyDog Tape (2007)
This is the new Kevin tape, with the JBJ tape and the TobyDog Tape and the episode is still missing about 25-30 seconds of content, so the 3 shows is usually enough to complete one episode rule does not apply here, well kind of. After over 30 hours of redoing work we now have a 99.9% complete copy of this infamous show, the best version to ever be shared online, a painstaking edit where only the best audio was used where applicable, the majority is the JBJ tape with the Kevin Tape and the Tobydog tape patched in. The band are making their 2nd known appearance on CLL and 2nd appearance of 1998 as well, this time bringing “gifts” for Adam. Holly Body tagged along and proves to be far more comfortable with Adam than say Melinda Messenger, whatever it was Adam was going for on #741 he experiences it here, wow! Yes, that is what you think it is hitting the microphone.
Original LLT summary by me or UnclePenny, written in 2008:
These guys are some of the all-time greatest guests, Adam discusses an additional order of 100 LoveLine MTV episodes, and Ken asks Adam about the Man Show which Adam replies is still at ABC but will soon be on the air somewhere.
Adult film actress Holly Body comes in for a couple minutes at the end of the show, Adam asks her to show her breasts to Drew and then he shouts at Drew to grab them but he refuses then Holly runs over and grabs Adam’s arm and puts his hand on her chest, Drew sounds really uncomfortable when Holly shows up.
Adam asks her for a quick flash before she goes and she runs over and rubs her breasts all over Adam’s head which knocks his phones off and leaves him unable to speak due to a mouth full of boob, you can actually hear her breasts hitting the mic.
Very unusual episode!!!!
Adam then laments he hopes Lynette was not listening.
From Boobpedia: Holly Body is a busty feature dancer and porn star. She used the alias Holly “BJ” Morgan in her first films. Holly got her most widely known stage name from the Brian DePalma film Body Double. Holly Body was the porn star character Melanie Griffith played. In 1992, working as waitress in a Mexican restaurant in San Fernando Valley, California, she was recruited by the actor and porn director Rex Hickok (aka Rex Cabo: Mr. Elastic Scrotum). By this time she was attending Santa Monica College and at the same time also working as a bikini dancer and stripper, primarily at the Wild Goose and Bare Elegance, near LAX, winning the 1993 Miss West Coast Wet T-Shirt contest.
At that time, her hair was blonde. After a couple years of retreat, during which she supposedly married a professional football player who was released by the Oakland Raiders, she returned to the adult industry as a brunette and with large breast implants. Holly has been a prolific performer, starring in over 150 films. She has, from time to time, also continued to work as a stripper. In the early 2000’s, Holly underwent facial cosmetic surgery. The results were extreme, as some of her fans could not recognize her with her new look. Holly Body now lives in West Hollywood.

Source –Kevin Tape (2016) with TobyDog Tape (2007) Tape Patches
This is the new Kevin tape, with some patches from the old TobyDog tape to nearly complete the recording, it’s now just missing about 1-2 minutes. Kevin proved to be a controversial guest, with some very direct “one time only” moments that happen in his interaction with Adam and Drew, many fans thought Kevin might be racist, some think Adam and Drew were being rude, listen for yourself and make your own decision about what went so wrong during this episode, this is Kevin’s only appearance on CLL.

This is the new Kevin tape, the only known source for this show that’s been missing for 18 years, I recall hearing this one live very clearly and it’s great to finally be able to restore it to the archive, it’s basically complete, truncated breaks and a few second gaps at the tape flip/10 second break and another spot or two, over 99% complete. This is his only appearance on the show. Let’s all listen again and see if it was any good.
LONG LOST EPISODE, SHARED FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME!
Cherry was born in Stockholm, Sweden, the son of jazz artist Don Cherry and Swedish painter/textile artist Monika Cherry (née Karlsson). He is half-brother of singer Neneh Cherry (his mother’s daughter) and stepbrother to singer Titiyo. Other half-brothers are violinist Jan Cherry, Christian Cherry, and jazz musician David Ornette Cherry. At the age of 12, Cherry was sent to school in New York City. He remained there to work as an actor and a drummer in various bands.
His father died in 1995. In 1996 Cherry returned to Stockholm to focus on his music rather than the acting career that had taken precedence in his professional life. He began writing and recording his debut album, Desireless, in his bedroom studio on an acoustic guitar. According to manager Tommy Manzi, Cherry’s perfectionism made him keep the recordings under wraps until the album was virtually complete. The album became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998 and 1999.Desireless sold four million copies worldwide and was certified platinum in the United States.

This is the only known tape of this show, it’s essentially complete with truncated breaks and a small gap or two, the best we’re ever going to get! Mark-Paul proves to be a fantastic guest and is very good natured about his TV movie work post ‘Saved by The Bell’ promoting his new movie ‘Dead Man on Campus’ and fall series ‘Hyperion Bay’ on the WB. Adam riffs on ‘Bad Ronald’ and has a “Pillow Infomercial” later in the show, comedy gold! This is a fantastic episode, it’s been nearly a decade since I first recovered it, let’s all listen again and enjoy! This is a newly transferred remaster of the JBJ tape, never before shared online. It’s missing the closing goodbye break. This is Mark’s 2nd known appearance during the Adam Carolla era, though he hints at guesting many times before with Dr. Drew and previous hosts. His last visit was on CLL #381 – Mark Paul Gosselaar – 1997/03/16 which aired in the old CLL feed, also a great episode.

This is the only copy of this show, two TD tapes merged together with almost the exact same content on both tapes, but some slight differences. The best version was used, enhanced and patched with the lower quality backup source. Adam proves to be a great guest and returns to the show two more times, once in 1999 and again in 2003. There are some audio issues including bleed in from another station or previous recording on the source tape, it can be annoying if you focus on it so try not to, this is a good episode.

This is Maná’s only appearance on Classic Loveline, the band are solid guests, somewhat quiet but still good and caller Michelle is a standout, not in a good way.
Maná has topped the all-time lists in much of Latin America and in their native Mexico, where they set landmarks in record sales and concert attendances. The band formed in 1986 and released its first album, Falta Amor, in 1990. In 1992, the group released ¿Dónde Jugarán Los Niños?, which sold more than 10 million copies worldwide,[
