Covino & Rich Show Recap: 4-11-17

Covino & Rich –  Tuesday, 4/11/17

Show Topics

  • 13 Reasons Why – Covino is so exhausted because he stayed up way too late watching 13 Reasons Why. While his initial reaction the show was that it was lame and made for kids, he watched a couple more episodes and now he’s hooked. It is pretty disturbing but it is a great show. A few problems with the show though – how do these kids have so many tattoos when they’re supposed to be in high school?!
  • Viral video of a man who confronts a woman who lets her dog poop in front of his house and doesn’t pick it up – Apparently, this woman continuously lets her dog poop in front of this guy’s house and doesn’t pick it up so the homeowner confronts the woman. The woman is shocked at how the man has the audacity to confront her. He makes her pick up the dog poop with her bare hand. Karma videos are incredibly fulfilling.

  • United Airlines scandal – C&R play the video from United airlines forcibly removing a man from the flight. Rich can’t believe that United let this happen – they created a nightmare of a PR scandal for themselves. Covino and Spot both agree that if he would have just gotten off the flight this wouldn’t have happened. The customer reacted immaturely but so did the United team. United shouldn’t have overbooked but they could have offered a better compensation to anyone willing to reschedule their flights.

  • Rich’s friend invented something and he’s going to be a millionaire – His friend patented Santa’s Enchanted Mailbox. You put the mailbox up and when your kid writes their letter the Santa they put it in the mailbox. Pull up the flag on the side of the box and the letter will disappear and be replaced with a letter from Santa saying he received the letter. Rich’s friend has already gotten an offer from QVC. Rich’s friend calls in to talk about the product.
  • Rob Trujillo’s 12 year old son going on tour with Korn – Ty Trujillo, son of Metallica bassist, was asked by Korn to go on tour with them. He’ll be traveling around South America with Korn. It’s a good PR move for Korn. Rich wonders what will be on Ty’s rider and if Korn really wants to tour with a 12 year old.
  • Friend in need – A listener reaches out because a childhood friend of his wife (who she rarely speaks to) invited them to their wedding. On the invite it indicated that it was black tie. The guy does not want to spend the money on renting a tux and a gift and all that. He encourages his wife to go to the wedding and he’ll stay home with the kids. Simple solution here – if you don’t want to spend the money, don’t and if you don’t want to abide by the couple’s request then don’t go.
