Podcast: The Mike Francesa Tribute Show (12-18-17)

December 18th, 2017 · Comments

2017-12-18-mike-francesa-tribute.jpg

Dave brings back Oomer, Rollins, YOTS, and TR to reflect on Mike Francesa's final show on WFAN.   We chat about the final week of shows, Mike's legacy to sports, and radio, and share our personal reflections on Mike's legacy, the rise and fall of Mongo Nation, the Mike Francesa.com, a message board devoted to following "Francesa on the FAN," and the future, both for Mike and WFAN.  Here are special guests scheduled for this Francesa tribute:

YOTS (John in Stamford): A frequent collaborator both on the DITCOW podcast and administrator at themikefrancesa.com, a website that tracks and comments on Mike's shows daily, along with other programs on WFAN.  Believe it or not, his favorite team is the Los Angeles Chargers!  He also likes the Yankees and Lakers.

Oomer in Rockland: He is the man behind @ordiomongo on Twitter, formerly @WFANAudio.   His daily links to Mike Francesa clips and moments from his WFAN shows sparked a revolution and brought rise to Mongo Nation, a viral Mike Francesa fanbase that represented the most dedicated fans of the program.  In addition he has been an Admin for themikefrancesa.com.  While a NY area native, Oomer's favorite team is the Chicago Bulls.

Timmy Russo (TR): The Administrator behind themikefrancesa.com, chief moderator of threads and posts.   Timmy is a proud NJ resident who is true to his alma matter, Rutgers University.  He also roots for the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Eagles.

Rollins College 4 Life: The man behind @WFANTrades on Twitter, a twitter account designated for tracking outrageous trade proposals by WFAN callers.   He also was an Admin at themikefrancesa.com .  Currently Rollins lives in Georgia and is a huge Mets, Giants, and Rangers fan.

A full hour-plus show of memories and moments.
