So Bennett Show history has been made. I cannot believe after begging and pleading to get the Wienermobile on my show, that this actually happened. Thank you Joey Bologna for stopping by my show last week and to Stella Stray Pop for joining us! Yes, the Wienermobile was on the LMU campus, yes we got to ride in it, and yes now I have no idea what my next move is, as this was my dream goal on KXLU. Stay tuned for more! Tomorrow I welcome KXLU fill-in DJ Georgie onto my show to guest DJ. The following Wednesday 6/10, I've arranged an interview with the ROBOSAURUS. :^]

THANK YOU again to Goodyear Pilot Bill Bayliss for stopping by the station last week before heading off on the big west coast blimp tour of America (first one in over 10 years!!).

SPEAKING OF great times, I have set myself up once again for what might be another EPIC episode of The Bennett Show. Seriously folks, tomorrow is one for the KXLU history books. Tune in at 11:00am, as I will be joined in the studio by the one... the only... get ready for it because the payoff is extreme & unreal... tomorrow on THE BENNETT SHOW, I will be joined by the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile and its driver, Joey Bologna.

On the Bennett Show. For you. KXLU 88.9fm 9am - 12pm

Eyooo. Did you have a good weekend? Nice, mine was good too! I rode in the Goodyear Blimp (you will hear about this later). I also got to check out the MARVEL UNIVERSE LIVE show on Saturday at The Forum. Don't know if you caught this, but I had the pleasure of interviewing the supervillain LOKI from the show on the airwaves a few weeks back. It was an amazing performance and Loki did a great job of being a bad guy, for such a good guy! There were explosions, insane stunts on motorcycles, people flying through the air, and even a guy on fire. Thumbs way up. Unfortunately, there will not be a Bennett Show this Wednesday, but still tune in as one of my favorite KXLU DJs Kyle Art Threat fills in for me. NEXT WEEK will be awesome - I've got an interview arranged with none other than... JOHN BASEDOW!!!
