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.

Ep. 80 - We have a big announcement, the crew talks about their Thanksgiving break, and we break down the "Hatchimals" craze!!

Sorry if the blog is a little naked today. Producer Stephanie has the day off!

Everyone is moving in slow motion today, a.k.a "dragging ass" - after a 4 day break it's hard to get going.

Hoss spent his second Thanksgiving with Kellys family. Hoss and Jimmy try to explain the craziness of Kellys family and how it all seems to work.  Their biggest tip....don't get involved in the fights! LOL
The Hatchimal craze is in FULL effect. Both of Kellys girls are asking for one which is making for some crazy shenanigans to get their hands on them!

Finally, our big announcement. The Kelly Manno show is moving to MORNINGS!  Monday mornings to be exact. Now you can enjoy the Kelly Manno show every Monday LIVE at KellyManno.com tune in for the first one on Monday December 5th at 7am!

Ep. 79 - Angela LaRocca and Benjamin Hochman are in the studio, we are talking sports, Thanksgiving, and a hilarious new mouth guard challenge!

Its a full studio today at the Kelly Manno Show! We've got two special guests today and they just happen to be a St. Louis Power Couple. Angela LaRocca is an actress/director extraordinaire and Benjamin Hochman is a sports columnist for the hometown paper, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

First off, BIG congrats to Highly Suspect, the band Hoss reps, on dropping their new album, The Boy Who Died Wolf, and for having the #1 single in the country today, My Name Is Human! These guys are truly talented and the song is awesome. Pick it up on iTunes or your music-player-of-choice by visiting their website http://www.highlysuspect.net/.

Though we're SO OVER all the politics, we had to touch on Melania Trump coming out saying she won't move into the White House so her son can finish school in New York. She, in fact, may never live there! Is this a thing now where the White House is optional for the President? Tell us what you think! We also dug up the video of Trump going around with Rudy Giuliani in drag for some Press Roast years ago. Good stuff - check it out:

Angela talks about about the new movie that she directed, called 'Must Fool Everyone'. Kelly and her daughter, Luci, had a small part in the film, as well as Benjamin, who's part turned out to be rather revealing...

We next get to talk to Benjamin about being a sports writer at the Post-Dispatch and get his thoughts on St. Louis sports, players and coaches.

Also, Thanksgiving is here already this week so we're covering our family traditions for the big feast. Some low key, some a little crazy. Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions?

And THEN! We bust out the mouth guards for a brand new round of the Mouth Guard Challenge! We did this one on Facebook live, so for the full experience, go to Kelly Manno on Facebook and check out the replay.

Ep. 78 - What's the deal with hunting? Plus our phones work and we have CALLERS!

You guys, we did it! We figured out the phones and took CALLERS on today's Live show! Woo! We are so smart!

So, as you know, Kelly has her concealed carry license and carries a gun. She also has taken classes and continues to get educated on how to use it properly and in what scenarios its appropriate. Did you see the story about the Lake St. Louis man who is being charged with murdering a guy who was stealing his car? He apparently shot and killed the suspect as he was stealing his car in the middle of the night. Kelly says, as an educated gun owner, she would've never shot at the car. What do you think of these charges? Was he justified in shooting at someone stealing his property? 

Next we have Hoss' dad, Dan, in the studio along with our first-ever caller (!!!) to talk about hunting. Its hunting season in Missouri and Kelly can't get her mind wrapped around why anyone would want to do this. Clearly, hanging out in a tree stand for hours with no wifi is not her idea of fun. Dan talks about deer hunting and our caller, Matt, talks a bit about duck hunting and we try to get to the bottom of why this is even a thing. 

Then, after a most enlightening round of 'Would You Rather?', we get to Taylor Swift. It was bound to happen, guys. T Swizzle has released a photo of a DJ she is alleging went up her skirt and grabbed her butt in a photo op. He's denying the claim and says the photo is his best defense. Check out the photo here and let us know what you think!

Ep 77 - Kelly got her son in trouble by the cops, PLUS who on the crew makes business phone calls while taking a dump?

We're getting the hang of this LIVE show, thing! Still no phone calls but we're working on that and it should be up soon. We had our good friend Chris Becker back on the show today to talk a little politics on the recent election and share our thoughts on the protests and craziness around it.

Next, Kelly recounts the story about getting her son in trouble with the cops. Let's just say it involves the Manno-mobile and window diving. You'll have to listen to get the full story - its a good one.

Lastly, we decided to play a game because we're all stressed about this stupid election and Producer Stephanie practically begged us. Check it out to hear the latest installment of 'Never Have I Ever' and find out some of the crazy things we have, and haven't, done.

Thanks again to Becker for hanging out with us!

Ep.76 - F*** it! We'll do it Live! OUR FIRST LIVE SHOW!!!!

Oh, you faithful listeners of the Kelly Manno Show are in for a treat. If you heard us tonight, its because we did our very first LIVE show! Yes, friends, that means no do-overs, no edits, and no telling what will come out of Hoss' mouth. And someday soon, we'll actually be able to take real callers on these live shows and its gonna be awesome. Promise. Someday reeeeeeeal soon. 

More on that in a minute. 

Kelly spent the weekend at a hockey tournament with Rocky in Nashville and because of a recent fainting episode, she took along her mom for the drive and journey. Lets just say Kelly's had her fill of Family Feud episodes, for, oh... maybe forever. 

We also weighed in on the season premier of the Walking Dead and the World Series and how people are sooooo sensitive about spoilers on social media. Are you someone who begs your friends not to post spoilers until you can watch? 

Finally, Election Day is this Tuesday and we get a little patriotic for a minute talking about our great country and the fine folks we'll choose between to run it. Regardless of who you're for, its important to get out and VOTE on Tuesday, Nov. 8th! 

So, back to the call-in situation. If you didn't hear us live, it was a bit of a trainwreck with the phones, but we had SO MUCH FUN. We tried, kids, we really did! And we tested it before we went on the air but, in true Manno fashion, calamity ensued. If you stayed with us and listened through it all, BLESS YOU! We were laughing about it the whole time, so just know that this well-oiled machine of the Kelly Manno Show will be fully phone functional in the shows to come. 

THAT'S RIGHT! THERE WILL BE MORE! Get excited because with LIVE shows comes more games, more giveaways and more of who-knows-what going on in the studio behind a microphone. All unfiltered and awesome. Stay tuned!

Remember if you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! We love our listeners!

Special thanks to our super sponsors who keep us going!

Ep. 75 - Does this look like a happy crew to you? Kelly and Producer Stephanie had terrible days, and Hoss was trapped in a room with them for an hour.

Guys, lets be honest. We all have crappy days now and then and, for some reason, we're all just in a terrible mood on today's show. Is it the weather? Is it hump day? Who knows. We hopefully managed a somewhat entertaining program today talking our usual gripes and the stuff that amazes us about other people.

Hoss' band had a great show last week! If you haven't yet, go see Highly Suspect on YouTube and the video for their song 'Lydia'. 

Also check out this awesome custom jersey Johnny wore for the show!

Did you guys see the guy in Miami that got accused of attempted murder? He has half a head!! See the full story here. Check out this guy's mugshot!!

We also did a little follow-up on our 'Flowers to Stan' prank. Listen to find out what happened! What should we send next? Get on the Kelly Manno Show Facebook Chat Group to give us your ideas!

Finally, we chatted about people habits or traits that amaze us. For Kelly, its people that can get up when their alarm goes off, no snooze. Check out her snoozed alarms! Producer Stephanie is amazed by people with air math skills and Hoss wonders about people who make the bed every morning (like, why??). Listen to hear the other things people are amazed by!

Speaking of snoozing, the Kelly Manno show is going to be off next week. October is super busy and we all need a little vaca to catch up on life and reset the mind. So no show next week, but this is a perfect time to binge listen! Go catch up on all the good stuff you've missed and re-listen to some of your favorites! And while you're going back to listen to all this awesomeness, go ahead and SHARE the show with some friends! Get them all caught up on our antics!

We'll be back in November feeling refreshed and ready to rock. See you then, guys!

And thank you thank you to our super sponsors!
