Wease starts the morning talking about the movie he went to last night, “Begin Again” with Keira Knightly, Mark Ruffalo, and Adam Levine. He loved this dramedy about the music business, and continues to have a crush on Knightly.
Today is Theme Bump Wednesday... guess Billy's theme for great prizes like dinner, tickets to Party In The Park with Trampled By Turtles, and tickets for Frankie Valli at CMAC this Saturday. The first song is "Nothin' On You" by B.o.B and Bruno Mars.
Tools And Sports
The MLB All Star Game last night turned into a tribute for the retiring Derek Jeter. Controversy has popped up because NL starter Adam Wainwright may have served up an easy pitch for Jeter to hit in the first inning. Jeter hit a double.
Nascar driver Joey Logano is pissed that 72 year old driver Morgan Shepherd caused an accident that cost him the race. Logano says there should be a driving test.
Men vs. Women: Bathroom Edition
Who is worse about cleanliness in the bathroom, men or women? Pauly accidentally used a public women's restroom last week and talked about it being spotless, but Wease has different thoughts, talking about how women can f*** up a bathroom.
Billy geeks out when The Wease Show talks to one of his heroes, Weird Al Yankovic. They discuss Al's new album "Mandatory Fun", songwriting, his tour with The Monkees, musicians who consider it an honor to be parodied, and the ones that have turned him down.
Doug With News
Doug also follows up on a conversation from earlier in the show, talking about a disagreement he and his wife had about bathroom etiquette, putting new toilet paper on the roll, and putting the seat down.
Joined in studio by former NFL tight end Roland Williams. He talks about being the only Rochesterian to win a Super Bowl ring, college experiences that he and Marianne have in common, and the football camp/mentorship program he's doing here in the city of Rochester.
Roland speaks about the controversy regarding the funding of his camp, and how he's hoping to help our community. Since he didn't wind up getting the government funding that was initially promised he has started a GoFundMe to help raise money. If you want to donate CLICK HERE.
Identity Theft Part 2
Last week Billy told about how someone was taking about $15 a month out of his checking account for the past year, and more recently once a week. He had gone to his bank for help, and initially it looked like the bank was going to try and reimburse him, and help track down the bad guys.
Monday he got a letter denying the claim, with a snottily worded explanation. Billy asks for advice and comments, and many listeners respond with everything from "hey knucklehead, the bank is right", to advice about changing banks.
- Billy wants to know if Wease will give him $200... nope.
- Marianne, how is the wedding planning going? It's not. She is getting married at City Hall, and now isn't even having a party afterwards... it got to be too stressful trying to plan a party that everyone she knows would enjoy... "John Ditullio, meet my Aunt Carol and Steve "Whatchu Talkin' About" Willis".
This question leads to a long discussion of weddings, honeymoons, and the money involved. Also a debate about cruises, which Wease and Pauly love, but Marianne calls "a floating Applebees".

A Comcast rep refuses to let a man disconnect his service because, as he explains, Comcast is the best service ever.
If there is a hell, being stuck on a call like this one with a Comcast customer-service representative would surely be one ring of it. Ryan Block, vice president of product at AOL and a Comcast customer who simply wanted to disconnect his service, posted a delicious slice of his attempt to disconnect his cable service.
“Why is it that you don’t want the faster speed? Help me understand why you don’t want faster Internet?” the Comcast representative asks after Block tells him he wants to drop the service.
My job is to have a conversation with you about keeping your service,” the Comcast employee said. Little did he know the customer was recording him.
The unidentified representative asked Block multiple times why he was leaving Comcast.
"Being that we are the number one-provider of Internet and TV service in the entire country, why is it that you aren't wanting to have the number-one Internet service, number-one TV service available? I'm just trying to figure out what it is about Comcast service that you aren't liking, that you aren't wanting to keep. What is it about that service?"
The call only ends after Block said he would stop talking, and just wait for the cancellation process to go through. The rep finally relented, saying, "I'm really sorry to see you go to someone who can't give you what we can..."
