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!

An Evening With The Thermals’ Kathy Foster…

This edition of The Five Count featured an interview with Kathy Foster from the band The Thermals. In addition to providing vocals, bass, and drums for The Thermals, Kathy is also a member of Hutch & Kathy, Urban Legends, and the All Girl Summer Fun Band. 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.

This edition of The Five Count featured a special interview with Danny Tamberelli. Danny is best known for his role as “Little Pete” from the Nickelodeon show The Adventures of Pete & Pete. He also appeared in the film The Mighty Ducks and now performs with his band, Jounce. During the show he talked about what it was like being the poster boy for Nickelodeon, his possible ties to the Italian mafia, being close friends with Emilio Estevez, and his band Jounce. Listen up, blowholes!

Sorority House Massacre…

During this edition of The Five Count we poked fun at people who wear glasses, discussed the reasons why laser shows are making a big comeback, and received a phone call from a local sorority who asked us out on a date. Ton never came home last night!

Ton’s Birthday Blowout…

This was the special “Ton’s Birthday Blowout” edition of the show. During the show we jammed out to Ton’s favorite songs, chatted about the metric system with a woman who called from China, and received a call from Ton’s arch-nemesis, Killoton, who unsuccessfully tried to thwart Ton’s birthday boogieing. For his birthday, Dustin gave Ton a brand new Motley Crue pencil pouch!

An Evening With WWE’s Paul Bearer…

This edition of The Five Count featured a special interview with WWE’s Paul Bearer. Paul is a professional wrestling legend and was a staple for more than 30 years in companies like WWE, WCW, and TNA. He managed guys like The Ultimate Warrior, Kane, Rick Rude, Steve Austin, Mick Foley, and The Undertaker. During the show he talked about life in the wrestling business, told stories about his days on the road with The Undertaker, and helped us understand how the wrestling business and the funeral business go hand in hand. Oh, yes!
