The Five Count Gets Spooky…

This edition of The Five Count was the beginning of a month-long series of Halloween extravaganzas. During the show Ton discussed the intense training regimen he uses to become huge, a caller shared some stories about being a ninja for hire, and we chatted with a young lady who told the haunting tale of what it’s like to be the daughter of KMSU’s Ms. Lona. Talk about spooky!

Bustin’ Out On The Funk…

This was a special “Funky Five Count” edition of the show. We celebrated the four-year anniversary of Ton leaving his old show (The Mothership Connection) and officially joining The Five Count. During the show we busted out on the funk, Ton complained about not being black, and then he brought back his old “J.C. The Love Doctor” persona to help the callers get laid. It was audio Spuds MacKenzie!

An Evening With “Genuine Nerd” Toby Radloff…

This was our special “Tribute to Nerds” edition of the show. We not only played musical selections dedicated to nerds, but we also had a very special interview with “Genuine Nerd” Toby Radloff. Toby is best known for his appearances in both the film and comic book series, American Splendor. He also appeared in the cult film Killer Nerd and it’s sequel, Bride Of Killer Nerd. Toby discussed what it means to be a nerd, the harsh mistress known as Hollywood, his memorable appearances on MTV, and sang songs about toilet paper. Nerd, nerd, nerd, nerd, nerd!

Caller One’s Birthday Blowout…

This was the special “Ton’s Birthday Blowout” edition of The Five Count. Everything was going swimmingly until we realized Ton didn’t show up for his own party. Out of anger, the show was quickly changed to the “Caller One Birthday Blowout” show. Caller One was much more appreciative!

God Bless America…

This was our special “Tribute to America” edition of the show. All the music was dedicated to our great country. We discussed our love for this great nation and gave thanks to the great men and women who sacrificed their lives to make this country great. Ton also shared some tips on how to make bombs out of sparklers. It’s always something with that guy!

R.I.P. Michael Jackson…

This edition of The Five Count was dedicated to the music of Michael Jackson. We shared stories about how MJ influenced our lives, including how he planted the seed for the inception of The Mothership Connection show that Ton used to co-host. It was beautiful. R.I.P. MJ!

The Five Count’s Five-Year Anniversary…

This was the special “Five Years of Five Count” anniversary show. We played our favorite clips from past shows, reminisced about the good ol’ days with the Brotherhood of Ton, and made new memories that will last a lifetime. We also premiered the brand new song Five Years of Five Count (Help Me Out, Lube Me Up) by The Five Count House Band. Thanks for helping us make it five years!
