Ep 93 - St Louis Blues fan favorite CAM JANSSEN is here!!!

Professional NHL hockey player, and St. Louis Blues fan-favorite Cam Janssen joins the show today!

But first.... RIP Chuck Berry

A legend in the Rock 'n Roll world and St. Louis hometown favorite Chuck Berry died this weekend at 90 years old. We talk about the effect he had on music, other artists in the industry and even his influence on today's music scene. Not to mention ways that Kelly can get to his memorial service to be the paparazzi for all the huge celebrities that will no-doubt attend. The Gods of Rock gained another angel!

How big of a "Hoosier" is Kelly? That's a loaded question but it was brought up by a friend she picked up over the weekend who told her "honking" for someone in a driveway is a hoosier-move. She says that with today's technology, the proper etiquette is to text someone that you've arrived.

But you know what they say... you can't teach an old hoosier new tricks. Kelly's gonna keep honking!

Cam Janssen is one of the few people in this world that can pull off being bat-shit crazy and incredibly charming at the same time. He beats the shit out of people for a living but you'll have a hard time finding any enemies of his because he's literally nice to everyone. 

We got to sit down and talk one-on-one about his career, growing up a hockey player, and of course Kelly's son Rocky got in on the action, too, asking Cam who would win in a fight... him or the Blues' current enforcer Ryan Reaves? To find out the answer you'll have to listen to the show.

Kelly also mentioned her favorite Cam moment of all time. Goalies are usually very protected and "untouchable" in hockey. But let's just say Price was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The rest was pure mayhem.

Ep. 92 - Jimmy's birthday party, Kelly's near-death experience and meeting your heroes

Happy Birthday Jimmy! This weekend we all got to hang out at Jimmy's 40th birthday party Kelly put on and it was FUN. If you like an open bar and grade-schoolers doing karaoke, then you missed out on the time of your life. Listen in to hear our favorite bits of the night and Hoss' rendition of the 6-year-olds singing  'Let it Go'...

If you follow Kelly on Instagram ( then you might've seen her nearly choke to death on cheese curds live on an insta-story. Just a lesson for you kids - don't try to sing 'Free Fallin' with a mouth full of fried cheese. You could choke and die and all your followers would see it. Thankfully Kelly is OK but its yet-another good PSA for safe use of social media.

Have you met any of your childhood heroes? Hoss is working feverishly to meet Axl Rose when he comes to St. Louis this summer, so we get to hear about how Kelly was obsessed with the band 'No Doubt' and how circumstances aligned so that she could follow them around the country on tour for a while and even share a banana with her idol, Gwen Stefani. Also find out if Hoss would rather spend an amazing weekend with Britney and never see her again or with Axl and never see him again. Decisions, decisions ...

Finally, Kelly weighs in  the latest Amy Schumer special to hit Netflix. Are you an Amy fan or is her humor too gross for you?

Ooh! Don't forget to sign up for the Kelly Manno Show's March Madness Tournament bracket... thing! Hoss knows way more about this than we do so he set it up. Pretty sure Kelly and Stephanie are just going to pick teams based on jersey colors and mascots. Get all the details on The Kelly Manno Show - Chat Group & Message Board on Facebook and the winner will get some cool prizes from the show!

Ep. 91 - Pro Boxer and MMA fighter Kevin "The Hitman" Engel joins us.

Kelly starting taking boxing classes at the HIT SQUAD co-owned by our guest today, Kevin "The Hitman" Engel, we are all genuinely amused by someone who gets punched in the face for a living,  needless to say, lots of good questions for him coming up.
But FIRST! Kelly, Hoss, and Producer Stephanie killed it at a music trivia over the weekend beating out over 800 people to take home first place. Our table worked much like a baseball bullpen, listen to find out which one of us are the overweight left handed specialist who come in once a game :)
Where the hell is Richard Simmons? No really, where the hell is he? A lot of people have been wondering that since he mysteriously disappeared from the spotlight 2 years ago and hasn't been seen in public since. It's the basis of a new podcast called "Missing Richard Simmons" - Kelly is addicted and you will be too, make sure you check it out on iTunes. 

What does your zodiac sign say about your habits in the bedroom? A new article is spilling all the details. We find out which sign is the best kisser, the best sexting partner, and if you are a Sagittarius, like Kelly....look out because you will NOT believe what it has to say about YOU. I think this might be the first time in the history of this podcast that we've actually seen Kelly blush. If you want to read it for yourself the link is HERE
Kevin and Kim are here, co-owners of the HIT SQUAD in O'Fallon where Kelly has been taking boxing classes. We ask a professional fighter 

What is the worst pain you've ever felt in the ring? 
Does your Mom come to your fights? 
Ever been challenged to a bar fight by someone who has no idea who you are? 

All these questions and more! Plus details if you want to join Kelly in her boxing class at the HIT SQUAD in O'Fallon. Look for the logo below. 

Wanna see one of Kevin's fights? Watch below, spoiler ends in a KNOCK OUT :)

Ep - 90 Giraffe baby watch, prune head the felon, and transgender wrestlers. Oh, and poop, always poop.

Greetings again, kids! Sorry for the no-show last monday. President's Day and the kids were off school. Schedules are crazy and show prep is hard, so that means you get a special 'We're totally winging it' episode of the Kelly Manno Show this week! Hurray!

Kelly and Stephanie have been watching their lives slowly tick away while waiting for this giraffe to give birth on youtube. The Zoo is on day 5 or 6 now of lives streaming the giraffe, April, who was set to give birth "any minute now". We think the giraffe isn't actually pregnant and just has some bad indegestion. Aaaaanytime now, April.

Meanwhile, Hoss was in Vegas last week chillin' with celebs and stalking Britney. He actually got a picture with (trolling) Scott Stapp from Creed giving the 'Arms Wide Open'.

Speaking of Britney, Kelly sees something wrong with her latest instagram video. Do you think its strange that her son is filming her doing a handstand splits in the gym? Kelly thinks its overly sexual and not something you should be doing in front of your kid. Stephanie and Hoss think its fine because he's filming from the side and nothing is 'showing'. Check out the video here!! What do you think?

We also talk about the prune head guy that got busted for robbing a kid's birthday party. Its a legit condition he has but, I mean, if your head looks like that, then MAYBE don't go get a haircut then get arrested. See the full story on Facebook here. The comments are the best part!

Finally, we get to the controversy in Texas where a transgender boy won a girls wrestling title while undergoing sexual reassignment. So basically, s/he was taking steroids and testosterone to transition to a boy, but under Texas law, had to wrestle under the gender on the birth certificate. Some people are calling it unfair or that the wrestler had an advantage with the steroids. This one gets interesting and you'll have to listen in to hear our take on it.

Ep. 89 - A peek behind the curtain of the radio business with guest Curt Copeland

Another Monday morning means a pipin' hot new episode of the Kelly Manno Show! You're in for the treat of an extended show today, because we've got special guest Curt Copeland in the studio and we're talking the Grammy's, Kelly's geriatric dog chase and an insider's look at the business of radio.

This poor sleepy creature is Kelly's dog Molly. Little Molly is about 15 years old and is having a great day if she never has to get up from her naps. 

Kelly's son Rocky had an out of town tournament this weekend so the Manno's enlisted their sweet neighbors to dog sit for them for a couple days.You're just going to have to tune in to hear the rest of the story and find out why Libby Lu made them this Thank You drawing featuring... the lake? Its a doozy, kids!

Next up, the Grammy's! Did you watch? Adele won nearly everything, Beyonce did yet-another strange performance art piece ("She looks like a gold statue of liberty who's pregnant" - Libby Lu), and Gaga was KILLING IT with Metallica - technical difficulties and all! 

And then we see the photo of Joy Villa on the red carpet wearing a Trump dress! Here she is in all her 'Make America Great Again' glory. Was this a little too political for the red carpet? A great statement? No matter how you feel about the man, this dress certainly got everyone talking.

Finally, our good buddy and veteran local radio DJ, Curt Copeland stopped by (he's our very best friend in the whole wide world, after all)! We chatted him up for a bit on everything from the Cardinals, to Valentine's Day and Tom Brady and we play 'Two Lies and a Truth' and learn a few interesting things Curt never did. 

He also gives us a sneak peek into the world that is on-air radio in St. Louis. Or, really, anywhere, probably. Curt's been fired from a few radio jobs and gives us some insight on the inner workings of how the stations are run, who gets to know what and maybe why these guys move from station to station so much. Its really a great listen, guys, so hang out for this extended part of the show. We'll definitely have Curt back on with us in the future!
