Weather. Creamy Acres. Traffic. Shartout – Preston’s friend Melissa is expecting a baby. Fox Trot 5k Run is Sat 11/2 in Plymouth Twp. Clip of Eddie Vedder dedicating “Last Kiss” to Nick, Matt, Pierre, and WMMR. Matt said “That’s me!” in the background. “This one goes out to Dick Flagilaine, Morty, and Peter.” Nick is still in shock he went to the show with Will Forte too. “Yes I’ve been to all 50 states.” Billy Gardell on Phone: How many times did Eddie Vedder say “Yeah!”? Nick saw Pearl Jam in Billy’s hometown of Pittsburgh. Any time we do anything outside our homes we’re happy. Likes classic rock, recently started listening to jazz. Makes his kids listen to vinyl. Remembers having records as a kid, likes the imperfections. I use technology like medicine – only when needed. Has a Showtime special airing tonight. Does standup about 25 dates a year and some club work, has been doing it since 1987. Chuck Lorre is letting Melissa McCarthy run wild on this season of Mike & Molly. Wants to produce a show. Eddie Vedder (cont’d): Eddie saying “To Nick” is now a ringtone. Nick wasn’t an official part of the interview, he was the engineer, and switched two cables. “Nick, this isn’t a microphone, it’s a roll of gaffer’s tape.” Matt held the mic by his nose, so you hear his breathing. Signaled to him to fix it. “Matt, this guy wants to give you a handy.” Preston had the same experience with Paul McCartney. Casey had to wear makeup for his interview with Trey Anastasio. You’re in a moment when you’re excited and terrified. “What’s your name, bullet head? Is this your Make A Wish?”
Eddie Vedder interview soon. Traffic. Scott Hartnell on Phone: You need to win 3 games to get a shoutout from Eddie Vedder. Saw the first Pearl Jam show, impressed that Vedder can go for 3 solid hours. Chowdown event taking place at Spasso Italian Grill in Old City. Was at Ice Line last weekend skating with kids, even while injured. Only gets flack online about Flyers. Saw cover of City Paper with “50 Shades of Orange,” people writing fan fiction about Flyers. Tickets for event at hartnelldown.com. Is skating at practice, wants to be back playing in the next few games. Is writing a kids’ book. Pierre and Matt are here, talking about Pearl Jam soon. Eddie told Nick he had a good question, there was a certain…wetness.
Exclusive audio from Pearl Jam soon. Traffic. Pearl Jam Recap: Eddie Vedder shoutout. “There’s not too many live ones that exist any more. You can call up and a real human will answer the phone!” He never really stops to talk much like this. Pierre was invited backstage after first show, and Eddie hugged him. “You know Nick, don’t you??” Was interested in everything Pierre said, and took notes about the station. When they were leaving, Pierre asked if they could do an interview. The interview was at 6:30, Pierre showed at 6:20. You were early!? They had so many problems during the setup, every time the door opened they were glad it wasn’t Eddie. He walked in working on the set list, “Maybe you guys can help me.” Nick tells him he’s never heard the song “Release” live. “That’s too bad.” Decides the set list himself, doesn’t use a computer. Didn’t know it was the 23rd anniversary of PJ until 4pm that day. Remembers the final Spectrum show. Played some of the most historic venues in the world, favorite was Wrigley Field. Was very surreal when he performed with Roger Waters. Kept thinking “Don’t f*** up.” Didn’t give much eye contact, puts a lot of thought into answers. “I’m a little distracted, I think I can hear God breathing.” “Last Kiss” started as a hit in Philly. Nick asked a question and got “That’s a good question.” After Nick said thanks, Eddie answered, “It wasn’t the best question.” Will Forte on the Phone: Nick was a real gentleman last night, and he asked the best questions. Had a lot of fun. Nick is a crybaby. Is a big PJ fan, has seen them several times. Last night was the best show he’s seen. Took a picture of Nick with Eddie in the background. There was no goodnight kiss. Steve is pissed, Will owes him a date. Eddie throws axes. Pierre asked for a station ID. “I’ll do it for you.” “It’s great being here with Morty and Ricky on WBAM.” PJ went into self-preservation mode and stopped doing interviews. “The only thing I’ll do is Family Feud.” When Eddie gave the shoutout, Matt let the row behind him know it was him.
We’re running way late. Bizarre File: A woman was arrested for driving her car with a man on the hood dressed as a dinosaur. Police arrested a man for stealing an ambulance crashing into an overpass. FL man who killed himself inadvertently shot a woman after the bullet that killed him also struck her leg.
