Ian Bagg in Studio Between Steve passing out and the Nacho Cannon, this is the most violent radio show ever. In the world of Nachos, the Nacho Cannon is the Zapruder film.

Some drummer trashed Preston at a party, we call him “Dog Crap.” Ian Bagg has a Twitter and loves to post his thoughts, except when people get offended. Ian used to have a job where he helped demolition teams destroy buildings. Nitroglycerine can cause people to pass out. Ian could be helpful, P&S always wanted to blow something up.

Ian thinks reporting on the red carpet is kind of stupid, but it's still pretty fun. Ian loves hockey, but is annoyed that the NHL is on strike, especially after LA just won the Stanley Cup. Who's to blame for the NHL lockout? Ian was cut out of a scene in Coyote Ugly because the producers couldn't get the rights to the music in that scene. Ian got the gig for MVP, MVP 2,and MXP.
