Best of Media Guests, Volume One (Episode 181)

This week, it’s a look back at some of Car Con Carne’s best media guests. And yes, there have been plenty of them through the years… which is why this is only Volume One.

In this podcast (presented by Boost Mobile), I revisit great moments with:

  • Matt Pinfield. The ex-MTV legend talks about music “guilty pleasures.”
  • WXRT DJ Johnny Mars. We talk about when I replaced Johnny at XRT, and a silly prank I pulled that ended up taking on a life of its own.
  • Abe Kanan, Tim Virgin and Bass. Three of my most-frequent radio colleagues (and repeat guests, one and all) join me in conversation about the overreaction to celebrity deaths. Warning: NSFW words in this segment!
  • Amy Guth. Media titan Amy Guth joins me for puns and talk about online harassment.
  • 103.9 The Fox (DJ/boss) Alex Quigley. My first guest on this incarnation of Car Carne!
  • Mancow. What does Mancow see in his future?
  • 101 WKQX midday host Lauren O’Neil. We talk about a concert memory of hers that ties directly into the present day.
  • Sirott and Murciano. Chicago media’s power couple join me for Cuban food and the harrowing story of how Marianne Murciano’s family escaped Cuba!
