One of the great things about local radio is that for the most part, they are unabashed homers.
They don’t even try to hide it.
When something bad happens, it always sounds like a funeral. I have XM radio because I am a National Sports Reporter, but every once in a while, I will tune in to the local guys here in Saint Louis.

On the flip side, when something good happens, their exuberance is so over the top it becomes pure comedy.

The “Coming to America” line is nice, but the “South Beach open your legs” is better, if not a bit creepy.
Actually, the video below of his co-host “Stugots” may even be a little bit better.
