Ep. 85 - The world debut of Luci the Pint-Sized Prankster!



We're recorded today because Kelly thought she was getting sick on Sunday night and dosed herself with cold meds to sleep it off. There was no getting up Monday morning for a show. So we're a little late but you're in luck because its a great show, so just go listen to it!

The highlight of today's show is our world debut of Luci the Pint-Sized Prankster!

Kelly's 9 year-old daughter Luci has been dying to be on the show forever so she's decided to be our resident funny-guy.

For her first time out, we've got an awesome prank call to find out if Luci can get help with a penguin that's taken up residence in her bathtub! People were confused, there were hangups, we actually got some advice on what to do with a penguin - it was great! Expect more from our Pint-Sized Prankster in the future!

Ep. 84 - We're back from Christmas break! Did you see Mariah Carey on NYE? Yeesh....



We're back! Did you miss us? Of course you did. I know you're all a little confused because its Tuesday instead of Monday but GET OVER IT! We need a break, too, dammit! Just kidding. We're so glad to be back and next week we'll be back to making your Monday mornings suck a little bit less. Until then, everyone enjoy their first day back at work and hopefully we can make you laugh a little along the way. Its gonna be the Monday-est Tuesday ever!



Mkay, if you're still with me, we spent some time chatting about the NHL Winter Classic that was played in Busch Stadium this weekend. Yep, they filled up baseball heaven with ice and had a classic rivalry game between our St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks. The whole weekend was filled with events and even some old Blues friends stopped in for an alumni game before the big show.

Hi Wayne!

Did you get your kid a Hatchimal for Christmas? Has it cussed at you yet?? Listen in as we test out Kelly's kids' Hatchimals to see if they start spouting profanity before naptime. Riveting!

We also have an awesome giveaway this week!! We're not promoting this one on Facebook and decided to keep it just for our amazing listeners. So its a super-secret-listener-only contest. I totally wish I could tell you all about it but you're just gonna have to listen to hear all the deets on how to win a SWEET Ryan Reaves jersey and a puck signed by Patrick Bergland. So go! Listen now! Do the thing! Win the stuff!


And if you missed the trainwreck that continues to be Mariah Carey, she blew it again on New Year's Eve when there was a problem with her song track and she couldn't hear. It was painful. Really awkward. Her dancers deserve an Oscar for keeping up the show, though! Bravo, dancers! Check it here - yikes:




Guys, thank you for listening! If you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! Make your friends' Monday (or, you know, a random Tuesday) mornings suck a little less.

Ep. 83 - Its the Ice-pocolypse! Also, a recap of our Crappy Christmas Caroling adventure



Hey kids! The Kelly Manno Show is... somehow... still doing live morning shows at 7am on Mondays! ... I KNOW! Its a whole thing now!

On today's show, and in case you missed it last week, we recap our adventure in Crappy Christmas Caroling. You guys really pulled through with nominating your friends and family to be on the receiving end of our jackassery and boy, was it a good time. Listen to find out what happened involving something called 'liquid ass' and if we finally were able to get kicked out of a Walmart!


And YES, of COURSE there's video of these shenanigans!



In case you live under a rock, or, I don't know, NOT in the St. Louis area, we had an ICE STORM Friday that all but shut down every major roadway in the area. People were sitting in traffic for hours, emergency vehicles were delayed and over 1,000 accidents were reported. The roads were so bad, that some local school buses weren't able to make it through and get kids home! We talked to a listener who had kids stranded at their elementary school overnight and find out how she, and her kids, handled it! THANKS, MODOT!

Ok maybe it wasn't THIS bad, but sheesh!

Another case of, 'So weird, it has to be from here': Todd Beckman, the guy who owns TanCo and MassageLuxe and a few others were indicted on kidnapping and weapons charges. This guy apparently kept someone in a shipping container for days until the family paid him $27,000 (whut?). They eventually paid and he was released, but again, what?? Check out the story here and let us know what you think!

Lastly, are you in the Christmas spirit this year? Are we being Scrooges? Ugh. So this video is going around of a kid at a high school who is receiving shoes from, what looks to be, the popular kids. Now, we're not taking away that this was a nice gesture, but whats with all the cameras? Why is everyone gathered around? Was this just a stunt to get a viral video out there? Do you think kids need the world patting them on the back in order to do good deeds? We think this trend of fake charity videos needs to stop. Be kind to one another and do good things without expecting praise or hits on your video for it.  Are you over it too or is this just the best?

Ep - 82 Dan Duffy is here! We talk about the "so-called Preacher" trying to ruin Christmas for children at a mall.



Hey guys, Happy Monday! We're back for a new live show with special stand-in co-host, Dan Duffy!
Dan is a St. Louis radio icon and we are so happy to have him filling Hoss' seat while he's out of town. Thanks for joining us Dan!

Dan's family has been hit with the stomach bug going around and we chat about home remedies and the one weird thing that Kelly swears keeps the stomach flu from permeating the entire Manno household.

You also might get a little preview of the next Kelly Manno Show crazy stunt so tune in! We might show up at YOUR front door this week!

Oh and before we forget, CONGRATULATIONS to our Ugly Selfie Contest winners! Jen and Nichole both put up such great ugly selfies and great marketing efforts that Kelly gave away TWO Hatchimals to these lucky ladies! Great job, girls!


Guys, did you get your pet rock from Nordstrom before they sold out?? NO!? Well, you missed out! These things were going for, like, $85 a piece and apparently enough people were suckered by this that they SOLD OUT of them.


We also played the hilarious Generation Game with Laura, a millenial, and Marilee, a baby boomer. Listen to find out which could answer more questions about the other's generation!

Finally, we get to weigh in on this so-called 'preacher' in Texas who goes to the Santa line in the mall and starts heckling the kids and telling them that there is no Santa. I mean, really? Whats your take on kids believing in Santa? Do you think you can be religious and still have Santa be a part of Christmas? Watch the video, if you can stomach it.


As always, we love you guys for listening! If you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! Make your friends' Monday mornings suck a little less.

And thank you thank you to our amazing sponsors!
