Default 30 for 30: Mike and The Mad Dog

Really enjoyed it. Should have gone two hours!

as a life long NYer who listened to them since the beginning, it was a great trip down memory lane

Was great . Loved Mike and the mad dog. Kind of got tired of Mike and listen to Michael Kay now but if he ever got back with Russo would listen again. I'm a Joe Bedingo guy so wish he would take over for Mike .

I enjoyed watching it. I had never heard of Russo until picking him up on Sirius XM five years ago. I especially like him now on High Heat. Anyone that can bash the Cubs and NY teams is alright by me.

I grew up listening to Pete Franklin in Cleveland in the late 60's / early 70's. There was a quick mention of him when he moved to WFAN right before Mike & Mad Dog started. He really should get more credit for being a pioneer of the aggressive and brash sports talk style.

Looking forward to seeing it. Huge fan especially when Mike picked Seton Hall (my alum) to win the Final Four in 1989 against Imus. They were both on WFAN yesterday morning during the morning drive as call in and was a great listen. But solo Francesca not as good and have slowly moved to the Michael Kay show as someone else mentioned above. But during their heyday, they were a must listen to for any sports fan in the NYC/NJ area.
