Bronco Babble Week 6

Oct 12, 2018

It's just Lukester and the Janerator as Briscoe takes off for Africa and things descend quickly into the toilet, which was appropriate for talking about the Jets game cuz the Donkeys laid a big turd. The best, and redeeming, part of the show was Little Willie called in after a long absence from KDNK. Only he's not Little Willie anymore, he's Big Willie. We were tempted to ask him how he became Big Willie, but Bronco Babble is a family show.
