An Evening With WWE’s Sheamus & Grim Reaper’s Steve Grimmett…

This was a jam-packed edition of The Five Count. This installment of “Scare-A-Thon 2010” was filled to the brim with celebrity action as we had not one, but two megastars on the show. First up was Steve Grimmett, lead singer for the metal band Grim Reaper. Grim Reaper is best known for their legendary albums See You In Hell, Fear No Evil, and Rock You To Hell. They are also the only band to have all of their music videos featured on Beavis & Butt-Head. During the show he talked about being part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, punching Def Leppard in the face, and having Grim Reaper’s music videos torn to shreds by Beavis & Butt-Head. It rocked!

After that we were joined by WWE Superstar Sheamus. “The Celtic Warrior” is a multi-time WWE Champion, the 2010 King of the Ring, the 2012 Royal Rumble winner, and has feuded with numerous WWE Superstars including Randy Orton, Triple H, and John Cena. “The Celtic Warrior” discussed how he started in the wrestling business, his hatred for The Miz, and his upcoming appearance at WWE’s Bragging Rights PPV in Minneapolis. It was an amazing show, Fella!

Halloween Rush Hour…

“Scare-A-Thon 2010” rolled on with this edition of The Five Count. During the show we continued to rally for pledge drive dollars, spoke with an enraged caller about the lack of Rush in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and continued to fight the good fight against the plethora of hilarious technical issues at KMSU. Unfortunately, it seems to be a never-ending battle.

An Evening With The Ghostbusters’ Ernie Hudson…

Ernie is best known as “Winston Zeddemore” in the Ghostbusters films. He has appeared in countless films and TV shows including The Crow, Airheads, Congo, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, and HBO’s Oz.

The Five Count’s Scare-A-Thon 2010…

This edition of The Five Count was the first installment of our “Scare-A-Thon 2010” shows for the month of October. During the show we tried to decide the best way to create an action figure for general manager Jim “Gully” Gullickson, took a call from a disgruntled lumberjack from Gustavus College, and then Ton took the listeners to Cuddle Town. It was hella scary! The show has even scarier sound quality thanks to faulty equipment at the KMSU studios!

During the show she discussed what it’s like being in The Thermals, life as a rock star, and why people on the West Coast view Mankato as a mecca for punk rock. Who knew?

Down With The Beatles…

During this rendition of The Five Count we talked about opening up our own boutique, pissed off a Uriah Heep fan, and Ton opened a major can of worms by announcing that he hates The Beatles. Southern Minnesota was irate!

A Party With The Flaming Lips…

During this edition of The Five Count we discussed the possibility of having our doors blown off by polka bands, fielded a call from a jealous general manager, and gave away tickets to the upcoming Flaming Lips show in Minneapolis. Congrats to all the winners!

Labor Day With E.T. & Michael Jackson…

We were rippin’ and a tearin’ through this special two-hour edition of The Five Count. The first hour was made up of the typical hilarious fare, including a recount of Ton’s days as The Rocketeer and a heated discussion about who would be eaten first in the event of a zombie apocalypse. The bonus hour featured a special broadcast of the E.T. The Extra Terrestrial storybook, narrated by the one and only Michael Jackson. Southern Minnesota (and Ton especially) were brought to tears by this emotional tale. What better way to spend a Labor Day weekend?

Pour Some Pie Filling On Me…

During this installment of The Five Count we discussed the joys of running a farm for hearing-impaired jungle cats, the dangers of burning your crotch with hot fruit pies, and tried to figure out if we were bad enough dudes to rescue the president. The jury is still out.
