On this day of thanks, let us not forget one of the greatest Thanksgiving Events in Television (and Radio) history.

Every time I watch this, I think that Les and Tim are nearly the same person.

50 years later, the mystery of D.B. Cooper still intrigues

50 Years later. Totally changed commercial aviation. Really made an impact. And we still have no answer of what happened to him.

I wonder what Rick would have to say on this anniversary.

D.B. Cooper has been an infamous name in Pacific Northwest crime history for five decades. Will the case of the country’s most notorious skyjacker ever be solved?

12 Years Ago Today; Rick, Sarah, Tim, and Greg, signed off of terrestrial radio for the final time as an ensemble. The signs had been there fore weeks, but October 23, the rug was pulled out from under them (along with Cort and Fatboy). The owners of the station were not satisfied with the content, as they felt it was too geeky. The replaced nearly everyone on KUFO, and rather than make the station better, ratings took an absolute nose dive, from which it would never recover. Within two years, the station would no longer even be a music station, but an FM News station, which was part of a trend to destroy fun and engaging music stations that people enjoyed, and replace them with endless, often voice tracked, news programs.

It was only about 2 weeks before Greg and Sarah started Funemployment Radio, nearly a year before Rick did something similar with "Legion of News" and his traditional show, along with Dawn Taylor, and Tim was able to get into several other positions on radio and TV since. But nothing beats the chemistry that Rick, Sarah, Tim, and Greg had, and nothing, short of a full reunion can ever replace them.

Larry King, legendary talk show host, dies at 87

Long time radio host, CNN talk show host, and most recently RT talk show host, along with one of Rick's frequent impressions, Larry King, dead at 87.

One can imagine that he's going to enjoy grilling the Metatron.

Larry King, the longtime CNN host who became an icon through his interviews with countless newsmakers and his sartorial sensibilities, has died. He was 87.

49 Years since the Hijacking by Dan "D.B." Cooper, one of the many things Rick wishes he had the answers to.

Looking for a few good persons to write up synopsis for episodes. I never remember to write any while I re-listen to the show, but think that it would be helpful for those looking for a particular episodes. Any help would be appreciated.

This mountaineer led Will Smith up to the lip of an active volcano on his new Disney+ show. BUT...He's gay!
Does anyone remember which episode was the Steven Seagal interview?
Tim Riley at his best.
The Big Sn**ch
In today's classic RES moment, they discover the "generic sad music" and Dante The Cab Driver has a suggestion for something completely inappropriate to play underneath it.
I've wanted to do this for a while, I made a channel to host various clips from the show.
I remember Rick would make Bruce Williams references occasionally, but I was too young to get them. A while back I searched around and found this channel, it's pretty neat to listen to these old shows, and the references make sense now.
Can anybody tell me about WonderStruck? is it Ricks band or a Movie that somehow slips into show that Rick doesn't go into much. I'm up to 02/11/08. Google hasn't turned up much.
Talk about a deep cut... Found in a Mexican grocery in Atlanta, after 13 years of searching:
Who is back to listening to The Rick Emerson Show? I'm up to 1/25/08. Back in the days, I listened off and on during the day (work and all). Now I get to hear the whole show. Rick and Tim are Geniuses. Best Show Ever. Sorry to hear about Timmy Ryans passing. Just getting to know him again.
