Best Radio Morning Show Phoenix 2013 - Holmberg's Morning Sickness
In 2006, Holmberg's Morning Sickness hosts John Holmberg and Brady Bogen were given a warning from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office — for a second time — that they could face animal cruelty charges for encouraging acts of animal abuse and bestiality. Said warning came after the two men paid a listener a cool $550 to eat peanut butter off an English bulldog's butthole. Obviously, this happened a long time ago, but we bring it up to illustrate why we've named HMS the best show in the Valley for the third straight year. Events like the one above are fairly common, and regular features like the Joke Dick, in which Bogen ruins the jokes listeners try to tell; Guadalupe Squares, a non-PC version of Hollywood Squares featuring the impressionary talents of Mr. Holmberg; and the yearly Mother's Day MILF Contest keep us tuning in day after day. We don't ask much from a morning radio show — just entertain us during the drudgery of the morning commute — and HMS delivers. By God, do they deliver.
