Stanley Cup Takes Walk With O&A
May 17, 2006 at 6:19 AM (PT)
OPIE AND ANTHONY's daily walk from their studio at CBS Talk WFNY-A (92.3 FREE FM)/NEW YORK to their XM SATELLITE RADIO studio, broadcast live on XM, had a special guest WEDNESDAY morning: the STANLEY CUP.
The legendary NHL hockey championship trophy has been making the radio and TV rounds in NEW YORK this week, and after OPIE, a longtime NEW YORK ISLANDERS fan, complained that other shows were getting visits from the cup but that O&A were being passed by, the hosts were surprised by the cup's appearance late in the broadcast/satellite simulcast portion of WEDNESDAY's show.
O&A's on-air walk has featured celebrity participation before, including "SOPRANOS"/"GOODFELLAS" actor FRANK VINCENT and regular guest comic RICH VOS, who took the opportunity to perform standup in a STARBUCKS on the way.
