      It's now Ron and Fez doing the show. Diaz is doing a sports show in Tampa still. They are up in the Baltimore area and you can get their shows in MP3 format online if you look hard enough. Just search for the O&A virus and just look for the ODC software. People trading O&A are also trading all the ron and fez shows since about 2000 until current. you can also catch them on AM 1010 in tampa from 7pm til 11pm. Good luck!

Is the Ron and Ron show and gang back in action? I now live in the Pensacola area and was listening to your show on TK 101 here just before you guys went on hiatus. Needless to say I was unhappier than a queer with lock jaw on Valentine's Day. HOW CAN I GET THE RON & RON SHOW HERE?????????? good luck

I have been living in Hawaii for the past 8 years and thought you had died until I was watching comedy central with my girlfriend (who had never heard of you) and we lauged our okoles (Hawaiian for asses) off. We now have The Blue Collar Comedy Tour DVD Ron Whites Tater Salad DVD and I just ordered A very Larry Christmas and The Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again. We love your comedy and is there a chance you could do a show in Honolulu. There are a lot of rednecks over here. We also enjoy the Blue Collar T.V. show.

      Hi Johnny F, Man, Ron & Ron ruled! We lost the show here in Jacksonville...and that was a sad day for me...and I never imagined that Ron & Ron would split up! I have about 10 hours of R&R on tape...Fez would always break in with the Nature Boy...and that was always good for a laugh at work (I worked at a rather large Restaurant then, and we had the radios blasting in 3 kitchens, and 2 service areas....everyone that worked there loved Ron & Ron.) Sadly, Lex and Terry (two local idiots that I can't stand - they think they are funny, but that's as far as it goes. The Givers, more like the Annoyers.) I still have some of the Dead German Tourist stuff as well... (I know I have I like Marijuana on tape somewhere around here.) And I have the Marion Barry song Well I told you one day that I would be back, as soon as I put down my Bag O' Crack! sung in James Brown fashion...actually -I have that online. :D Tim

Date: 2/28/2004 9:12:37 PM Author: The 'REAL' Radio Junkie E-mail: Hey everyone, I read the take by Radio Insider along with The Real Scoop and guess what - they're both WRONG! The truth of the matter is Ron Diaz is leaving THUNDER 103.5 for 620 am The Sports Animal in Tampa. Ronnie D. will replace our late friend Chris Thomas' show. But all is not lost however. Ron & Fez are currently in negotiations to syndicate their show into the Tampa market. As soon as I get more info on the station, date, etc. I will post on this message board. As far as Bubba goes, I tend to agree with Real Scoop - - Bubba will not be heard in Tampa - - at least for a year or two. The other rumors floating around town that Bubba and his pal Terry Bolea (Hulk Hogan) are trying to buy a Tampa radio station are also not true! Thanks for reading this post.

      Entertainment talk radio was an excellent move by Infinity radio - - but they made a VERY BAD decision by putting it out on an AM station. 1010's signal is very FUZZY! I live just to the north of Tampa and I can't hear it at all. I was so exited to find out that Ron and Fez were back and all I hear is static on the radio. Hey Infinity, WAKE UP... dump that stupid ass 92.5 country crap and move 'The BUZZ' to the FM side. Howard Stern on AM? Are you kidding me! With all the New Yorkers in the area (Pasco and Hernando Counties included) what the hell is he doing on a VERY WEAK AM station? Ron and Fez had a HUGE following here for years - - and Infinity puts them on the same WEAK AM station! C'mon WAKE UP and get your heads out of your asses Infinity!

That's the station which recently announced that it's adding Howard Stern, too. DCRTV hears that D&M will soon reveal three more stations for their national Westwood One show.

I stopped listening to morning radio after Ron & Ron went off the air in South Florida. Since so many people are still interested in them, I won't throw out the tape. Instead I will put it on eBay next week.......unless someone e-mails me with a ridiculously high cash offer.

      Yes those were good spots.. I actually won a trip to the Dominican Republic on 95YNF, courtesy of Front Row. Had a blast!! Yep I miss R&R and all the supporting cast. Piece of Denise, B.L. (now on the SporChix show), Fast Eddie (channel 44), Flipper, and of course one of the funniest men in radio, Fez Marie Whatley! Those were good days for radio in Tampa. However those are days that are gone and can never be recreated. Lets just feel fortunate that we had the chance to enjoy it while we could. (the congregation said 'Amen')

      I loved when Ron and Ron produced commericals for local companies.The BEST one was the one that Ronnie B and Denise did for Front Row Tickets.Ronnie plays the loving husband who comes home with tickets to the big game.Denise,the wife is really happy until she sees that they are end zone tickets.Upon commenting that they are bad seats,Ronnie B flys into rage screaming you make me feel like half a man! Then the sounds of slaps can be heard with Denise yelling stop!I think they caught hell for that one,but it was so damn funny.Another was the one that Fez and Eddie did for the limo company where Fez says you can even puke in the back seat,we don't care.Then Eddie pipes in Yes, but please don't.

What the f_ck is up with Tampa Bay radio??? We keep getting more out of state 'national' radio shows with no local ties to our Tampa Bay area. We have Ron and Fez just sitting up there in D.C. doing a kick-ass radio show and no local Tampa Bay radio station will broadcast their show here??? These guys have a local following in Tampa Bay that's HUGE....but instead we get shows with no local ties at all. I guess that's the type of game 'CORPORATE RADIO' plays. Someone is getting wealthy broadcasting these no-talent, out of gas radio show in Tampa Bay, and we the listeners are suffering for it.

(Bob and Tom are on Thunder 103.5 and are actually pretty funny) I agree with you that The Monsters in the Morning Show sucks very badly and is nothing but 'hillbilly', white trash, redneck, and very crappy radio!!! Ron and Ron were the Kings of morning radio and were the very best radio show I ever heard. I would love to hear Ron and Fez in Tampa Bay....I just hope all the rumors of their return is true! seeeee ya!

      The Ron & Ron Show actually broke up in 1997 at the time Ron Diaz permanently left the show. Ron Bennington and Fez tried to keep the show going with a new guy who called himself Ron to take Diaz's place, and it just wasn't even close to what the show was with Diaz. Although they continued to call it The Ron & Ron Show without Diaz, they failed miserably. They were let go and left to look for work. By the way, Diaz didn't miss that much time during the period his wife was dying. Anyway, after a short while, Ron & Fez surfaced on a small radio station in Daytona Beach Florida (WKRO). Their show didn't last that long there either, and then they moved to do overnights (11 pm till 3 in the morning)in New York. The station tried them in mid-days, but after a short while, threw them back on nights (7-11pm). When the stations most popular show, Opie & Anthony got a huge public backlash for having a couple have sex in St. Patricks cathedral, the company changed fired everyone and changed the format. Ron & Fez helped keep the lights on at the station until the format change, but moved once again, this time to Washington D.C. where they currently are doing nights again (7 - 11pm), and a also fill in one hour during the day (11-12 pm) between Howard Stern's show and Bill O'Reilly. Ron Diaz took a short hiatus after the death of his wife and resurfaced on WTBT (Clear Channel) in Tampa where he anchored the morning drive slot and remained for seven years solid until he signed a new long term deal to do sports for Clear Channel, starting with their WDAE sports outlet in Tampa.

      This is kind of a long story but I will do my best to fill everyone in. Ron Diaz's wife contracted the AIDS virus and was dying in the last few years of the Ron and Ron show. This took an incredible toll on Diaz and he missed a lot of work, understandably. The Ron and Ron show broke up in 1998 and Ron Bennington and Fez Whately started the Ron & Fez show in Dayton, Florida. Ron Diaz took a needed hiatus from radio. About 8 months later they moved up to NYC and was hired at Infinity's WNEW who had a brand new FM Hot Talk format. They worked the late shift from 11 p.m - 3 a.m. They were syndicated shortly thereafter to Washington D.C's WJFK were they were played live at the same late slot. WNEW was anchored by the growing success of the Opie & Anthony show which brought WNEW from last place in NYC to the top. Ron and Fez then moved to mid days where they were successful and then to the night spot from 7-11 where after one year they were the #1 show at their time slot. Everything was beautiful with the hottest talk show in the country being Opie & Anthony (syndicated to about 25 cities) #1 in their time slot from 3-7 followed by the #1 evening show Ron and Fez from 7-11. This is where they hit the iceburg. On August 23, 2001 Opie and Anthony held their annual Sex for Sam contest which has couples earning points for having sex in different public places in NYC. The couple with the most points wins. One couple had sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral and were arrested. Infinity, management, the station and Opie and Anthony caught HELL. The show was canceled, dozens of people were fired and the station was basically a ghost town with only Ron and Fez left for a few months until the format flipped to Top 40 on February 1, 2002. Ron and Fez were still being broadcasted out of D.C so they made the move to WJFK and that is now their base station. They have been there ever since and have a mid day show from 11 a.m - 12 noon and a night time show from 7 p.m - 10 p.m live with the last hour (10-11) being a replay of the hour long mid day show. Ron Diaz is broadcasting a morning show in Florida now as well. Ron and Fez also have a message board/web site at RonFez.Net.

      Garden-Stated (whoever he is) is a joke! First of all, Diaz's new show is great! Secondly, BUBBA SUCKED BIG TIME, and Brent Hatley was EVEN WORSE! Brent was passionate about his Gators (although he never even went to school there), but that doesn't mean that he knew anything at all about sports. He was one of the worst people on radio I ever heard (unless of course you like someone who constantly stutters, and attempts to come off as an expert on everything he's talking about. I suppose he was a legal expert as well). Lastly, Fez's real name isn't Matt! The chemistry of Ron & Ron together is what made the show work so well. Ron & Ron and Fez (and everyone else) contributed to the greatness that was...THE RON & RON SHOW!

      98ROCK has hit all time lows in my book. I have listened to the Mighty 98 since their format change from Classic Rock to Pure Rock back in 1991. I always liked 98 for the music (hard rock, new rock first, cool dj's, great promotions). Practically none of this is true anymore. First off the music is just average at best (I can't believe they still have the song 'man in the box' in their daily rotation....get real guys)!! They don't seen to focus on any cutting edge new rock anymore, the dj's are boring, (Big Rig is just average, Launa sucks, and Love Line is gay). I have to admit however that Pat & Taco from Orlando have grown on me a bit although I have heard better. I don't listen to overnights so i can't comment on Brian Medlin, however I did listen this morning to the Monsters in the Morning show and let me tell you this.....This show is the biggest piece of shizit I have ever heard. If I wanted to hear a bunch of white trash rednecks talk all over each other for four hours a day I would sell my house and move into the nearest trailer park!!! I have heard The Monsters in Orlando in the past and I concluded back then that they are not funny and it's just a bunch of crap. 98ROCK needs to wake up. They need to hire a LOCAL show in either the mornings or nights or BOTH! Ron and Fez would fit perfectly on 98ROCK. Everybody knows them, they are VERY FUNNY and TALENTED guys, and they would probably LOVE to work in Tampa Bay again. If anyone else agrees please call the 98ROCK offices in Tampa between 9:00 - 5:00 at: 813-832-1000 and tell them you demand Ron and Fez!!!!!! Thanks!

      Ron Diaz did a Big new contract and extension with Clear Channel to be on WDAE, with plans to syndicate. Supposedly, his agent had been working on the deal for some time, and looking for a sports talk syndication deal for Diaz. Billy The Phone Freak is still with Ron, but more in the background. Contrary to what someone posted here, Ron and Fez will NOT be on 620 WDAE, or probably any other Clear Channel station (in Tampa, or any other market). Diaz's new show is really great! Its a much better format for him than on Thunder 103.5. As someone posted here previously, the show is more of a guy's talk show than just about sports. With Diaz's new long term deal in place that includes syndication for him, it looks like there's no chance of Ron & Ron getting back together.

      I'm a bit confused.... With all the so-called experts who have posted messages on this board it's hard to tell what the hell is the real deal! I listened to Ron Diaz today on 620 am from 9:00 - noon. Actually, I really enjoyed the new program. It's difficult to make a judgement from just one show, however, Ron and his new co-host and former Tampa Bay Buc Ian Beckles did a great job. Flipper from the old Ron n' Ron show even called to into the show and Billy the Phone Freak made some comments toward the end of the show! I was never a big fan of 'sports radio' however Ron and Ian's new show is more like 'radio for guys' The show opened with Ron talking about The Mons Venus.....now that's a good sign!!

      Ron and Ron will return to the radio on 620WDAE The Sports Animal. The show will air from 10-12 just two hours at the beginning. However once sydication starts the show will be placed in a 7-11 slot. This is a done deal and will be on the air by mid-March. As for Bubba, the rumors are true that Hogan and him are looking to buy a radio station. They do not have any deals locked in at this point.

      Hello Tampa Bay! Gary Spivey here with my own Ron & Ron predictions. I feel that Ron Bennington, Fez, and Ron Diaz had some discussions in the recent past but they decided not to bring back the old show. Ron Bennington and Fez however are currently very interested in returning to Tampa Bay radio. I feel that they are currently in negotiations with a Tampa Bay radio broadcast company to have the Ron & Fez show in Tampa. I also feel that Billy the Phone Freak has a major part in these events as he wants to stay in radio and has a long history with Ron & Fez from the old Ron & Ron days. Thank you all my friends, Gary -

I turned the radio on to Thunder this morning (like EVERY morning) to listen to the Ron Diaz Morning Show and I heard these two knuckle heads bantering about a bunch of mindless crap! I was shocked to say the least. Ron is gone. I can't beleave that we are not going to have any LOCAL morning shows anymore. What the heck is going on?

      I wasn't wrong...I said that Ron & Ron would NOT be reunited, because Ron Diaz got a big deal to jump to 620WDAE and extend his contract with plans to syndicate. With Diaz's new BIG deal, it looks like any thoughts of a reunited Ron & Ron are over! 98ROCK may go to a syndicated morning show also, but definetly not Ron & Fez. Bubba will not be heard in Tampa or probably anywhere else. He's pretty much blacklisted at this point. No one will touch him...probably not even XM satellite radio.

      Hey everyone, I read the take by Radio Insider along with The Real Scoop and guess what - they're both WRONG! The truth of the matter is Ron Diaz is leaving THUNDER 103.5 for 620 am The Sports Animal in Tampa. Ronnie D. will replace our late friend Chris Thomas' show. But all is not lost however. Ron & Fez are currently in negotiations to syndicate their show into the Tampa market. As soon as I get more info on the station, date, etc. I will post on this message board. As far as Bubba goes, I tend to agree with Real Scoop - - Bubba will not be heard in Tampa - - at least for a year or two. The other rumors floating around town that Bubba and his pal Terry Bolea (Hulk Hogan) are trying to buy a Tampa radio station are also not true! Thanks for reading this post. Radio Junkie says seeee ya!!!

      Bubba sucked! He wasn't even in the same league as Ron & Ron! Ron & Ron set the trend for cutting edge, entertaining radio. Ron & Ron are still the all-time kings of great radio! They made history! Bubba was a cheap imitation...period. And...not even that good of a cheap imitation. Bubba should have been fired a long time ago, not for indecency...but, just for being bad! Ron & Ron WILL NOT BE REUNITED on WXTB 98ROCK, WTBT Thunder 103.5, or...anywhere else! WXTB 98ROCK will hire a syndicated show. Bubba will not be hired by 102.5 The Bone or...any other Tampa market station (or any other station in the country probably). His only hope is to TRY to get on XM Radio (subscription), which is a joke! Don't believe Radio Insider...this is The Real Scoop.

      Greetings from St. Louis, MO. I am a transplant here. I moved from Polk County, Auburndale, Fl. you know the Hee Haw section of Florida that you guys used to make fun of. I used to enjoy listening to your show on 95ynf back in the late 80's. Joanne and Wanda, Malabu Moe etc. I called in after Spring Break in 89 and talked about a girl I met. We partied for three straight days and I asked if you guys could call her in St. Louis, MO and ask her if we'll ever hook up again. You did call her at 5:00 am her time and we had a great time on the air. Well, it's been 15 years now and we are happily married and have two children. I always think about that day and how great it was to be involved in a little radio humor. Thanks guys.

      Chris Qualmann here, an old friend, frequent caller and one-time guest on the R&R Show. It sure sucks that Bubba got fired today. His show was annoying at times, and while he was no Ron & Ron, he still had a tremendous following, and election-year politics is what did him in. On another note ... does anyone know where I can get a copy of Let the Puppies Breathe? Do any stores (such as Fairvilla) still carry it?

      Well, it took quite a bit longer then expected, but Bubba The Love Sponge is finally history at 98ROCK in Tampa. This means we will soon have Ron & Ron back on the radio in their home market of Tampa, Florida! The insiders are saying Ron & Ron will anchor the 6-10 am slot on WXTB/98 ROCK, however I hear some rumblings that the boys may make their home on XTB's classic rock sister station in Tampa WTBT/THUNDER 103.5 WTBT...either way Tampa Bay wins! Look for Bubba to resurface on the radio soon in Tampa Bay on 'Real Classic Rock' 102.5 THE BONE in the Tampa market. This is a station that has long struggled for ratings and they are in negotiations to land Bubba as their morning man. stay tuned for more.....

      the let the puppies breath video is some very funny stuff indeed. it's actually been several years since i watched this video but i think its time to dig it out of storage and play that bad boy again! if i remember correctly the video is a compilation of various ron and ron live gigs mixed with puppy shots from actual ron and ron listeners at these gigs. ron diaz has more of a dry sense of humor which fit perfectly with ron bennington and fez whatley's styles. i had the opportunity to listen to ron and fez a bit when they were in nyc and thought the show was great. the original ron n' ron show had an incredible cast of characters that all had an important part in the show's success. they included: ron diaz ron bennington fez whatley billy the phone freak fast eddie flipper paul 'o' larry the cable guy ron diaz and billy the phone freak have a morning show in tampa (103.5 fm) i just wish we could merge their show with ron and fez's show!! hey jersey jokes, if you have a link to the d.c. show please share it with the rest of us..... seeeee ya!!!

      So what happened? I read on this site a few months back that 92.5 fm in Tampa was going to change to an all talk format with Ron & Ron in the mornings. Well the station changed formats and has a new morning show....hosted by Cowhead!! For those of you that don't know the history, Cowhead was once Bubba The Love Sponge's sidekick back in the day on 93.3 and 98ROCK. I have to admit that Cowhead can be funny at times...but Ron, Ron, or Fez he will never be. Piss poor move by 92.5 !!! Morning radio in Tampa town really does suck right now....thank God we at least have Ron Diaz to listen to on Thunder 103.5 --- the rest of the morning shows in Tampa can all bite me!!!

      I discovered Ron and Ron late in life and I guess a little later in their run. I lived in Pensacola in 97/98 and thought they were the funniest radio show I had ever listened to. The first few times I had the radio on and they came on I actually changed the channel because Ron B. would say something I thought was offensive (I find most radio DJ's offensive). After this happening several times, I realized that they made fun of everybody and that they weren't being cruel- just terribly, terribly funny. I became a devoted fan. Then I moved overseas for a couple of years, moved to Tampa only to discover no Ron and Ron. I am still upset about it. Bubba SUCKS and everyone else is so arrogant, I can't stand it. The only bright spot is Fisher on 97X- I like the music on that station and I find him humorous- like a clever, funny friend. He doesn't talk enough though and lets face it- nothing can ever compare to Ron and Ron. So, I say let's stop talking about this and all the rumors and lets petition Clearchannel or Infinity or whoever to get them back. (I'd even settle for Ron and Fez if Diaz doesn't want to play.) Clearchannels website leaves alot to be desired, but I am going to look into this a little more and see if I can come up with some contact info. Money is everything to these companies and if they see how many people are dying to have Ron and Ron back, they would be IDIOTS to not oblige us. I would even listen to that misogynist trash station 98 Rock to get Ron and Ron back. When I finally do find an email or address for someone I am going to send them a link to this message board so that they can see the devotion of Ron and Ron fans. I will also post again with the contact info and would encourage you all to write. And, if anyone out there knows the best way to do this- POST so that we all know. Now, since I didn't get to listen to them very long, I feel like I've missed alot. And now that I live in Tampa, it is my duty to find out more about this great show- is there a history or articles or anything that a novice like me could read to learn more about the history of the show? Thanks.
