  • Big J's Face Punch, Double Guests and Slash

    We brought two guests on the show this morning. First, Michael Burgi of Adweek called into the show for a recap of last night’s commercials. You can peep our favorite commercial below and check out the "Best Of" commercials right here. Then towards the back half of the show, Michelle Edmonds of Today’s 6 and Fox 9, stopped by the studio to chat up the topic of funding for public schools and what’s going on with school fee lawsuits. Catch more of that story tonight on Fox 9 at 9 and Today's 6 at 10.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Fisher Stevens and Nonpoint

    Coming up this weekend! We have a few events going on this weekend that you should be aware of. First off, we have a live acoustic X Session with Nonpoint in our studios at 2PM this afternoon. Dial your radios to 100.3 or stream us live here: http://www.xrock.com/listen-live/. Following the X Sesh, join us down at the Knitting Factory this evening as Nonpoint, Candlelight Red, Ripchain and Bukkit all take the stage. If you can’t make that or weren’t able to get tickets, come out to Beef O’ Brady’s on Sunday afternoon for our Big Game Party! We have Volbeat and Flogging Molly tickets to give away, along with a Deftones autographed guitar and free beer! Yeah, free beer from kickoff up until the first team scores. See you this weekend!

  • Tech Tour, John Ramsay and Sports Scandals

    We learned all kinds of new things today during “Sports with Pete.” How did the Boise State hoops team fare against Colorado State? Brett Favre returns to the NFL and a The Dan Marino Scandal. All included in this handy little audio package. Click here now.

  • The Liability, Ultimate Blind Date and Doritos Tacos

    Important Stuff: The CEO of Taco Bell announced yesterday that the Doritos Cool Ranch Taco will officially be unveiled during the big football game on Sunday. Oh by the way, if you ever decide to air a commercial of your own during the Super Bowl, get ready to break out the piggy banks and fork over $4 million for a 30 second ad.

  • DVDumbass, Jamey Jasta and Tremonti

    During this week’s DVDumbass, Big J willingly selected a movie called “The Liability” over “Fat Kid Rules the World” and “All Superheroes Must Die.” Check out the trailer below and check back tomorrow for the full review.

  • Big J's Punch, Trailer Park Threesomes and Important Stuff

    Today’s GTH story may or may not involve trailer parks, beer and threesomes. Full audio from today's show included. You’re welcome.

  • Bad Impression, Big J's Life Lesson and 57 Heavy

    We closed out the week with a little “Bad Impressions” action. Jimmy Kimmel found himself as today’s target for a little stunt he pulled with Matt Damon recently. It became almost notorious that Kimmel would close out his show with the line, “sorry to Matt Damon, we ran out of time tonight,” in reference to when he would jokingly bump Matt Damon from the broadcast. This time, Mr. Damon fired back. He managed to tie up Kimmel and host the show himself, bringing out a plethora of celebrity cameos. Take a look for yourself below.

  • Tech Tour, Important Bleep and Anthony Pettis

    Time for some “Important Stuff.” Kate Upton (hot model) appears in a sexy new Mercedes commercial that’s been receiving some controversy towards the company. Sex sells right? So what’s the deal exactly? Take a peek for yourself below.

  • The Paperboy, Rock on the Range and Ultimate Blind Date

    The Rock on the Range 2013 lineup has just been announced and all I can say is that you need to look at the lineup for yourself. It’s a dandy. Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Bush and Stone Sour sit atop the bill, but check out the full lineup below and all your Rock on the Range info can be found right here.

  • DVDumbass, Important Stuff and Kevin Murphy

    In sports, a deal has been reached with some Seattle investors to purchase the Sacramento Kings. That’s right, the Seattle Supersonics will be back! In other news, our friends in Korn recently did a great thing for a guy named Tyler Sims through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Check it out below.

  • Brian Welch, Madden Tourney and Dave Grohl + Corey Taylor

    This morning we received a phone call from this guy named Brian Welch. You might know him as the former lead guitarist and co-founder of this little band called Korn. Yeah, f$%#ing Korn! Brian's new band, Love and Death, has an album coming out tomorrow, so he was kind enough to chat with us about that as well as what's going on with Korn. Check out the full interview right here and the video for "Chemicals" below.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Natascha McElhone and Playoffs?!

    What happened to the NFL Playoffs?! With all the current stories regarding college sports, coaching scenarios and performance enhancing debacles, it seems as though everyone has completely left the Playoffs in the dust. You know, there are two huge games going on this Sunday that will determine who travels to New Orleans for the Super Bowl. That being said, grab some grub, invite some friends over and enjoy some good ol’ football this weekend.

  • Tech Tour, Racing for Smiles and Retirement Time

    Our pal Ron Hayes stopped by the studio this morning to chat about Racing for Smiles as they have a great charity event coming up on Saturday, January 26th. "So You Think You Can Race" is a nice little charity driven event that will take place out at Fastland Indoor Kart Racing in Boise. Go have some fun, race some carts and help out a fantastic cause.

  • Papa Sheen, Branded and Barter Kings

    Charlie Sheen was today’s “Bad Impression.” He’s currently in the news because we just found out that will soon be a Grandfather. Sheen’s 28-year-old daughter, Cassandra Estevez, and her husband are expecting a baby. Congratulations to the Sheen-Estevez family!

  • DVDumbass, Jason Newsted and Decay

    Sevendust sits just a few days away from retirement on Cage Match. Their latest track, “Decay,” has been bulldozing its way through challengers. Check out Sevendust working on their new album below and dial us up tomorrow during the 9 o’clock hour with your song opinions.

  • Jaw Jacked, Winterized Vehicles and Nirvana + Paul McCartney

    We played a brand new track from former members of Nirvana with Paul McCartney on Cage Match this morning. To our surprise, it lost to Sevendust by a fairly large margin. Come on people! Are you aware that a majority of the rock music you’re into was most likely somehow influenced by The Beatles and Nirvana.

  • Life Lesson, Heather Donahue and Big J's Playoff Picks

    Big J’s “Life Lesson” today was a simple, yet very important message and that is to drive safely in the current weather conditions. Knock the snow out of your wheel wells, otherwise there’s a chance it freezes up and causes even more issues than you might already face. Get up a little sooner and leave early for work, as that option is better than being late for work or speeding to get there, putting yourself and others in danger. Drive slower and if people want to get mad that you aren’t going fast enough, they can go pound sand. If your truck or SUV says 4X4 on it, you don’t have magical winter weather driving powers. Safety first, friends.

  • Snapchat, Adam of Three Days Grace and The Red Light Variety Show

    It's Tech Tour time. Big J recently found out about a little app called Snapchat. It allows you to send text messages or photos with a time delay to self destruct in a set amount of minutes after sending. Basically you can snap a shot of your junk, send it off and it will end up deleting after someone sees it. The app is starting to reach the news in an attempt to create awareness for parents due to the rising popularity amongst teens.

  • Cosmopolis, Rich Eisen and Song Fights

    After a narrow victory over a great track from Bullet For My Valentine yesterday, Sevendust took on Eye Empire this morning on Cage Match. Needless to say, Sevendust rolled on with their track "Decay" and will endure another speed bump tomorrow.

  • DVDumbass, Dennis Haysbert and Miss Alabama

    Pete has returned from the Rose Bowl, which means Sports with Pete is back! As you probably know, there was a big college football game last night. Well, it wasn’t much of a game and all you need to know is this:
