This was our special Mother’s Day edition of The Five Count. During the show we sang praises to mothers all over Southern Minnesota, tried to set Ton up with any single mothers in the audience, and gushed over The Five Count House Band‘s recent appearance in the Mankato Free Press. Check out the photo below. The show is lacking in sound quality thanks to faulty KMSU equipment!

This edition of The Five Count featured a special interview with musician Doseone. Doseone is the co-founder of the Anticon record label and one of the best MCs on the scene today, performing with groups like Themselves, Subtle, cLOUDDEAD, 13 & God, and many more of today’s best in the world of hip hop. During the show he discussed his thoughts on today’s hip hop scene, shared the secrets of the art of freestyle rapping, and told a story about embarrassing Eminem in a rap battle at Scribble Jam. We keep it real on The Five Count!
This was the 300th broadcast of The Five Count! We went Over the Top and celebrated by playing the entire soundtrack from the aforementioned cinema masterpiece. During the show we dissed all the naysayers who said we’d never make it, discussed the pros and cons of taking helicopter rides with Juggalos, and arm wrestled each other until we passed out. The world might not meet you halfway, but you can still listen to the show!
This was a special Easter edition of The Five Count. During the show we tried to lure today’s questionable youth away from the dangers of rock music with help from the Church Universal and Triumphant. We also begged for pledge dollars and broke the news that Ton had died and descended into Hell. Hopefully, on the 300th show (next week) he will rise again!
During this installment of The Five Count we talked about throwing knives at furniture, reminisced about Ton using semi-automatic weapons to destroy Dustin’s cherished childhood keepsakes, and discussed the art of crossbow warfare with a cab driver. It was an unnecessarily hostile show. Get caught up in the crossfire!
This installment of The Five Count featured a heaping mess of ridiculous. During the show we shared stories about Ton’s career as a matador, briefly considered a career as cage fighters, and Ton reprimanded a caller in a Cajun-like fashion. The rest of the show was spent discussing different ways to style chest hair!
