So I think they started to play a song didnt like and so I switched to Power 102 and Patty was arguing with her co- host about whether or not she should read a list of how women should court a guy shes interested in.

Yesterday I guess was the first time it aired and he had Slash on as a musical appearence throughout the show he was playing with the band. He also had Charlie Scheen on. I was surprised when I had heard Charlie say that his real name was Carlos Esteves. I was like what, why did he change his name?… Continue
