Bubba's Show Goes Out With A Bang
July 2, 2009 at 2:37 PM (PT)
Syndicated and SIRIUS XM morning host BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE apparently loves to leave his listeners hanging ... for a good, long while In a JULY 4th gag about fireworks, he seemed to "blow up" resident stuntman TOM THE TREEMAN.
According to TAMPA BAY ONLINE, TOM THE TREEMAN donned a NASCAR fireproof suit and helmet when BUBBA and crew draped 16,000 Black Cat firecrackers on him bandalero-style. They threw a Roman candle at him, which set off the Black Cats, which sounded like chaos on the air.
BUBBA then went to a commercial --and abruptly end the show as a cliffhanger ... and the show is now on vacation until JULY 13th.
A spokeswoman for the show said no one was harmed during the program.
