Ep. 107 - Walter Wright is in studio with us, and GUNS N FREAKING ROSES are coming back to St. Louis for the first time since the 1991 riots.

Listen to "Ep 107 - The Kelly Manno Show - Guns N Roses Episode" on Spreaker.

Walter Wright is a bit of a legend in St. Louis. Chances are good if you've been to a concert in the last 30 years you've seen him, or maybe he even tossed you out of a show (tune in for a story about the time he kicked Kelly out of an URGE show 18 years ago). He sits down with us for an exclusive interview about his career in the security business. Find out which celebrities impressed him, and you'll be shocked when you find out which one disappointed him and who left him the most starstruck. 

He had a front row seat of the Guns N Roses riot of 1991 and he tells us the story from a security guards point of view. 



If you need a refresher of that 1991 riot check out the link below.


Finally we had 2 listeners come in studio and battle it our for a pair of Guns N Roses tickets. Who went home a winner? Find out now on Episode #107 of The Kelly Manno Show Podcast.

Ep. 106 - The ECLIPSE is coming, and people are freaking the hell out.

Listen to "The Kelly Manno Show Radio Podcast - Episode 106" on Spreaker.


What up, people! Hoss is outta town this week so we had our awesome friend Chris Becker come back in studio to co-host today! Chris is a super-successful wedding photographer who has started his own 'side hustle' as a health coach teaching people how to lose weight and keep it off using nutritional ketosis. Check out his story and program at ketology.co and let him know you heard him on the Kelly Manno show! Welcome back Chris! We also had Kelly's neighbor Lisa sitting in with us because why not? She's fun and we loved having her! Thanks for walking across the street to hang with us Lisa!

Ok, so if you somehow missed it, this week, the COOLEST PODCAST IN STL (that's us) put out a contest to win Guns N Roses tickets for their triumphant return to St. Louis on July 27th. Go see Kelly's Facebook page if you didn't see the video. You can't enter anymore though, because today we pulled the names of two people to face off with GnR trivia live in the studio on Monday for their chance to win! Congrats to Julie and Alanna! We will see you ladies on Monday - bring all the Axl knowledge you can fit in your brain!

Also, while on Facebook live, we chatted for a bit about the reasons we all hate Facebook. Kelly's noticing some weird stuff going on with her posts and who's seeing them and we think Facebook algorithms are to blame. Did they change things up again? Are you seeing posts from total strangers now? Do you hate Facebook but need to have it like we do? Ugh. Facebook.

And speaking of Facebook, a lot of this started because Kelly posted an editorial article from the Belleville News-Democrat making fun of a local school district that has decided to close school for the day of the solar eclipse in August. Check it out here. Its funny, right? Some people got super offended and had some really nice stuff to say about the story and other commentators. Do you think its silly that the school is closing to 'protect the children' from the eclipse? Would it be the school's fault if a kid damaged his eyesight looking at the eclipse while on school property? Will Kelly beat her 1995 'eclipse-looking' record of about 20 seconds and screw up her eyesight even more?

Ep.105 - Gross things you do with your spouse, and naked hockey players.

Listen to "The Kelly Manno Show - Radio Podcast Episode 105" on Spreaker.

Do you pop your husbands pimples for him? Have a conversation while one of you is on the toilet? Or share bathwater? Apparently many people do. Find out who on the show admits to the gross stuff.

But first! We are joined by Jen from Sacred Movement today hanging out and talking about a new class happening at her studio. Welcome back, Jen!


So we were live on Facebook talking about this car that somehow got on the roof of a house in St. Louis. Just how fast was this guy going to get enough air to be get himself on the roof of that house? Check out the story here!

We also talked about how ESPN put out their 2017 Body issue and Kelly and Hoss think they made everyone in that issue look awesome and badass, but they made the hockey players look stupid. Thoughts?



Next, we cement ourselves as one of THE coolest Podcasts in the area with the announcement of our Guns n' Roses Concert Ticket Giveaway Contest! If you missed the video about how to enter, check it out on Kelly's Facebook page for all the details, but HURRY! We'll be picking two people to come in and go head to head to choose a winner on Wednesday! GO GET IT HERE!

Ep. 104 - Hoss wins for the worst date EVER.


Kids, what did we all do before the internet? Or smart phones? or GPS? There's a narrow generation that knows what its like to grow up without these things but will spend the majority of their adult life WITH them. Do you remember the days when no one could just call you wherever you were or look up the movie times from their pocket? What do you remember most about the "time before wifi"?

Next we all get regaled with the tale from Hoss' Friday night date. Trust us, if YOU think you've had some bad dates, you ain't heard nothin' yet. This is one you simply must hear to believe! Let's just say it can be summed up like this: 


Finally, we read this story about a fashion blogger in Paris that was randomly killed when a whipped cream can exploded, hit her in the chest and caused a heart attack. It got us talking about accidents and ways that the most random days can turn into your last. Don't worry, to end on a happy note, we go over a few lines that can be said to someone at a funeral OR during sex. Just in case you're in need of a few things that have a dual purpose...

Ep. 103 - The episode where we talked about boobs


You guys, its the show all of you have been waiting for! Well, maybe some of you. We finally talk about boobs! Well, kindof. More on that in a minute...

Kelly's kids are home on summer vacation and keeping plenty busy! They just discovered last week that her youngest daughter Libby Lu is quite the talented ventriloquist! Kelly's working on getting her a puppet and developing this newfound talent. Look for her on a future episode of 'America's Got Talent'! 

Next, we're weighing in on bras. Kelly is in the camp of the bra-haters. She'd go bra-less everywhere if it were socially acceptable and is in full 'support' of ditching social norms on the so-called torture devices. Producer Stephanie (thankfully, the only other bra-wearer on the show) loves a great bra and has done copious amounts of research to find just the right ones. Whats your thoughts on the bra? Necessary evil or woman's best friend? Should it be socially acceptable to go bra-less if you've got boobs bigger than an A-cup? 


Our friend and famous white Branco bandit, OJ Simpson, is up for parole next month after being imprisoned for nine years following a conviction for his role in a 2007 Las Vegas hotel room incident where they were allegedly trying to steal OJ sports memorabilia at gunpoint. What do you think ol' Juice will do once he's out of prison for good? TV show? Another book deal? A Podcast??

Ep. 102 - The Great STL Bicycle Debate

Listen to "The Kelly Manno Show - Radio Podcast - Episode 102" on Spreaker.
We're back again, kids! If you were with us live on Monday, you got to see the whole show on Facebook Live! If you catch us live, be sure to comment and let us know you're there - we love to hear from you guys about our show topics so chime in! 

This week, Kelly and Hoss gave a recap of the Granite City Carnie and their time in the 'I Dood It' tent. Man, some people get really serious about the game and prizes. 


















Next, Kelly voices her annoyance with bicyclists on the road in St. Louis. Now, we all know that STL isn't the most bike-friendly place and bike lanes are only in certain areas. No one likes getting caught behind a cyclist and having to go 5mph behind them until you can pass, but what are the rules for biking on a main road? Should they stick to the sidewalks? Are we all overreacting and road-raging for no reason?

Did you guys see the story about the Kansas City man that was exonerated after 17 years in prison over a mistaken identity? The resemblance between this guy and the real criminal is unreal. Check out the story here. 


Then we somehow got to talking about our first cars and how crap-tastic they were and Kelly announces her brother's 'new' car that he is totally stoked about. Check out the sweet new ride!

















Finally, some of our listeners will be sad to hear that the beloved reality show castoff series 'Bachelor in Paradise' has been suspended. (insert sad trombone). A contestant on the show has alleged that the producers of the show didn't protect her when she got totally wasted and made some ... ahem ... bad decisions. Read the full story here. Let us know if you need some emotional support for this loss...

Ep. 101 - Kelly joined the roller derby this week and find out why she was mad at Hoss for 10 years without him knowing...


Listen to "The Kelly Manno show - Radio Podcast Episode 101" on Spreaker.

Hey there, party people! We're back again with episode 101 of the Kelly Manno Show! I know, we totally skipped blogging the 100th episode - but really, you just have to go back and listen to it for full effect. There's lots of pictures and video so when we get done sorting through all of it, we'll give you a nice little recap on the blog. OK? GEEZ GET OFF MY BACK! (ahem) In the meantime...

If you didn't know, we like to pimp out Kelly and Hoss for hosting events all over town. If there's a trivia night, event, bingo or church picnic around, we want to host it! This coming weekend, Kelly and Hoss get to go hang at the 'carne' in Granite City in the I Dood It tent! What the heck is 'I Dood It', you ask? In short, its a game, but you have to be from Granite City to know anything about it or its origins. Tune in to hear the details of what this game entails and where you can find us this weekend. Come hang out with us and maybe you can be the one shouting 'I Dood It'!


If you're interested in having Kelly and Hoss come host your event, you can email us at HeyKelly@KellyManno.com for info!

Next, we get to reminisce about the good ol' radio intern days where Kelly and Hoss first met. Did you know that Kelly had a grudge against Hoss for about 10 years and he had no idea? Good times...



Also, we found out that Mary Kay Letourneau and her Husband/Former Student, Vili Fualaau filed for a separation this week. They're claiming its for 'tax purposes' for his business but people seem to think that its really over. Its been over 20 years, a few kids and a prison sentence or two... but are these two 'meant to be'?


Guys, do you remember Chico and the St. Louis Six? Those cows that busted out of their slaughter truck and made a run for freedom? (check out episode 95 for the whole story). We got some great news today - The Gentle Barn has raised enough money to start a Gentle Barn in St. Louis! YAY!! We know its partly because of the listeners of the Kelly Manno Show, so we wanted to give you guys a huge Thank You for helping to make this possible! Jay and Ellie are just the best and we know that this is a huge win for the St. Louis animal-loving community! They'll always need donations, so if you can, go to their website to contribute to help the St. Louis Six and keep operations going in STL. Congrats Gentle Barn!


Lastly, Kelly started roller derby. Yep. It happened. She attended her first practice this week with the St. Chux Derby Chix and what an experience it was! Tune in to hear the run down of how a practice goes with the most badass girl athletes you've ever seen.



Guys, we love you for listening! If you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! And as always, thank you thank you to our sponsors!



Ep. 99.5 - We're planning out our 100th episode and the Instagram account with all the butts you want!


Hey hey fans! As promised, we're not prepared at all for our 100th episode yet, so we're totally cheating and calling this episode 99 and a half. Yes, of course we can do that. We do what we want.


ANYWHO... Speaking of our 100th episode, we're planning it out now! Yay! Set your alarms, a reminder, carrier pigeon, whatever you need to do to remember May 24th at 7pm for the Kelly Manno Show radio podcast 100th EPISODE! And since we're crazy like that, we're going to be doing the show from a yet-undisclosed Walmart in the area. You'll have no idea, we'll have no idea, THEY will have NO IDEA we're coming. How long do you think we can last until we are politely ushered out?

To try to guess just HOW long we'll be spending in jail next Wednesday, Kelly called up her buddy Paul the cop, who is the owner of Ultimate Defense Firing Range in St. Peters to get his opinion on just how much we'll be breakin' the law.



We also chatted about some cool stuff we found on the internet - you know how we do. First up is the group of kids that voluntarily got pepper sprayed in the eyes for a class in high school. Kudos to those guys, because DAMN that looked painful.


Also, have you guys seen the Instagram account for Cheeky Exploits (@cheekyexploits)? Its basically pictures of people in lovely landscapes with their butts out. I'm sure we spent way too much time talking about people's asses but some of these are downright artistic! And along the same lines, former Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney got in the news this week by posting a video of her dancing in a tank top and black thong on Instagram (@mckaylamaroney). We think she's trying to 'reinvent' herself for a music career, but people are all mad because young girls might see her as a role model. She's put it out there that she isn't and doesn't want to be seen as a role model but is she chained to her past as a gymnast?

You guys are the best, most attractive listeners in the world and we thank you for listening to our crazy show! If you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! Thank you again for your support and your support of our super cool sponsors!

Next, we've got Jordan Slone from Hounds (formerly Clockwork) in the studio today chatting with us about the band and whats going on and, most importantly, whats next for them.
