Morning Show parodies

I was wondering who here listened to great radio stations that played good parodies made by their DJs and also posts those parodies on the station's website. I've found several, but am interested in finding more (and would be willing to buy the show's CDs if they are available, lest people think I am posting just to "steal" these songs by downloading them?)

He has put out a ton of parodies over the years, and has put them on cd. He has a ton of christmas parodies.

a couple of the minneapolis stations do this, but (as with Rypro's post), they're only available in the Twin Cities area

the most recent (that I know of) is our local classic rock station's cd: "Send out the Clown" making fun of Gov. Ventura.

Rush Limbaugh used to play a lot of great parodies. One time he was talking about how people wanted him to release a CD of his parody songs, but he said that he couldn't because the owners of the original songs wouldn't give him (or his company) permission to use their songs.

It is possible that local radio stations will just run into the same problem, thus not release CDs (but will play them occasionally on the air).

Check out the www.bobrivers.com site listed above, they have some very good stuff. I have a Twisted Christmas Christmas CD, very well made and funny. Do a search on ebay for "Bob Rivers", you'll see several of his recordings.

For the Baltimore and Minneapolis discs, couldn't I just order the CDs from the radio stations themselves? I'd even be willing to call them and arrange an order over the phone, send a money order or whatever. I got some CDs this way. The ones I hate are the stations that say I have to go and make a food donation at some place downtown to get a CD and it's like, "Uh, but you're 400 miles away" and they just don't care.

the baltimore cd's that i was talking about are out of print, if you pleed with the dj, they might give you a copy (i have not tried this nor have i ever heard of a request for one) E-mail me if you want the stations number and ill even tell u who to ask for and what the cd is called.

Actually, I found their website and can get the number off of there for now. I am downloading samples of their parodies to see if I like their style of humor. I assume they have more than what is posted on their CDs?

By the way a lot of those parodies are not done by the actual radio station, many of them are done by a website, and they are updated to be used everyday.

These might not be actual radio parrody's by the station, but the ones on the CD's are skits that are done by the station. On the first page, go down to "I Love Gary Williams" and that one was recorded at the station.

sorry to bump this thread but I just heard a great one one 98 rock "Lets hunt him down (saddam), and shoot him down!" (in to the tune of chumbawambas "Tubthumping"
found it as well enjoy
http://www.98online.com/ttunes_archive.html go to the bottom, and go up until you see "This guy won't go away. Our Tune, Saddam Thumping." Classic to say the least and a great tune for our hatred for Saddam.
