“The man is a wrecking ball of joy!”
The interview started off slowly and as a Brit I had never heard of Kevin Meany, but the pace soon picked up and I think this was the best show by far.
Kevin Meany and B’Mo had a good thing going and the show gets better every week.
The best show on the network and also better than TAI, there I said it!

Glad you like what’s happening here, Acerockolla. But, why weren’t you in the live chat? 😉
Sadly somehow I missed it, I keep getting the bloody timing wrong.
I also have to say that the show is better viewed rather than listened to, it’s great to see the interactions and of course the amazing beard and outfits of Brandt
Thanks Ace. Kevin was actually the host of London Underground in the early 90’s. While it was filmed in London I’m pretty sure it was just for US tv. I’ll ask him on his next visit!
