How did I miss this man, Phil Hendrie? Excellent conversation, and I’ve been schooled a little on the whole talk radio phenomenon.

But this makes me think once again that the great Joe Frank, another outstanding radio prankster, a true original, needs to be on WTF. Please? This is important stuff, and so damn funny and eye-opening. Thanks Maron.

Phil Hendrie - awesome!! Discovered his show in the midst of some late night insomnia a few years back. Thanks for putting him on MM, will check out his podcast. See ya at the Brattle.

Such a great conversation! You brought me back to those days of listening to you on xm and then watching you on Break Room Live. Got the book by the way and it is fantastic! Your podcast and show lift this sometimes bitter teacher’s spirits.

Regarding the Buddy Rich tapes: a clam is jazz speak for playing a wrong note.

hey marc, great interview!  i am a fan from air america and breakroom live podcast, those were pretty funny, still watch ‘the bush yeers’.  glad to see all your bitterness and envy are finally paying off, gives the rest of us hope.  ‘Are we good?’  lol

Great episode.  I noticed another talk radio great, Lionel was mentioned.  He would be a terrific guest for a future WTF!

Almost a great episode.  Phil had the professionalism to discuss Rush’s radio abilities and impact independently of politics.  Marc was either unable or unwilling to do the same.

No, another in a string of innovative, contrived of original thought episodes.  You must have missed the part where Marc recognized Rush’s talents and asked whether he should be using them for evil.
