This is Omar Borkan Al Gala from the United Arab Emirates. He was deported from Saudi Arabia because he’s just too good looking.
Kind of a serious tone for today’s cast…From the Jojo Files we dug up a discussion we had in October prior to the Baltimore Marathon about Marathon spectators, those who go just to support and back the runners on the course. Jojo also found a couple of great tributes to Marathon spectators in the wake of the Monday’s bombing. AND — Jojo shares a touching story about a man, his guitar and his dying mother.
Plus other observations over the insanity of this week…
Jojo found out what happened to the old guy who kept falling every time they showed the explosion at the Boston Marathon on TV. He also talks about nostalgia from weird places; giant snails in Florida; an odd sound on American Idol has never been explained; and network TV coverage of tragedy has been rendered obsolete.

Rick Pitino promised his team he would get a tattoo if they won the NCAA title. They did. He will. So I brought back my producer from Mix, Bryan to tell his odd tattoo tale of the angel and the devil. Jojo also shares a couple of stories about people wanting their money back when it just isn’t possible, or is it? From the Jojo Files; Jojo, Stacy, Kenny and Reagan argue whether small birds are worthy pets.
Christian Finnegan did the stand up comedy bit “Pictures”
Chuck Mangione did “Feels So Good”
Joseph Gordon Levitt did a live version of R. Kelly’s “Ignition”
Charles Bradley did “Strictly Reserved For You”
As I attempt to focus my job search enough that I can actually get a new job, I stumble upon this fun fact. Maybe I need to get a job studying STDs like that guy!
Jojo opens the show wondering whatever happened to the online White Pages — why are they behind a pay wall now? It’s opening day, so we have a baseball song for you, and Jojo declares a winner of the internet. Plus — Jojo inteviews a listener with a unique job: he serves legal papers on people. And Jojo resurrects an old bit he hasn’t heard in a while, the “Bambulance” 911 call.
