After seven seasons, American Ninja Warrior had it's first ever contestant  complete the either course. Then...another guy did it! Sounds to me like maybe it's gotten too easy.


Contestants must simultaneously build AND CLIMB OVER a wall DESIGNED by Donald Trump to be impenetrable to anyone whose skin tone is darker than “beige” on the Sherwin-Williams color wheel.

Contestants have to crawl a rope ladder over a pool of hungry sharks after chugging a beverage provided by Bill Cosby.

Contestants must traverse a gulch, gripping overhead life-like dildos starting with ones molded from Tommy Lee and Ron Jeremy becoming progressively smaller down to Brett Favre.

Contestants are obliged to have sex with multiple Kardashians without knocking one up despite using only the Chicago Bears offensive line for protection.

Contestants must walk across a body of water on a course of spinning logs. The body of water is Lake Michigan and the logs are the ones that you find near the Milwaukee shoreline whenever the sewer backs up.

Contestants, armed only with a machete and an industrial strength Weed Whacker have to try to emerge unscathed after being airlifted into the middle of Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt's eyebrows.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week…the Kenosha couple who mistakenly gave their 5-week-old child baby formula mixed with two shots of vodka. The baby had a blood alcohol level of .294, which police indicate is more than three times the legal limit for an adult driver. Thank God, the baby wasn’t driving!


For not just lacking in intelligence...Similac-ing in intelligence.

For mixing baby formula and vodka when everyone knows…baby formula goes better with brandy.

And for doing everything to endanger the safety of a child shy of putting it between to two halves Italian herb and cheese bread and giving it to Jared.

We are proud to name the Kenosha couple who gave their  month old child baby formula mixed with vodka as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIES OF THE WEEK!

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…the as yet unknown person who stole a handmade butterfly sculpture…from a 6-year-old North Fond du Lac girl’s grave in Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery.


For being so low, it’s amazing they could take a break from milking pregnant snakes to find time to steal.

For being such a disgusting piece of dung, even a stray dog wouldn't stiff 'em.

For being such a parasitic bottom feeder, if they were found in the Fox River the Navigational System Authority would make them indefinitely close a lock.

We are proud to name whomever stole the butterfly sculpture, handmade by her father, off a the grave of a 6-year-old girl at the Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery as this week’s Rick and Len Show…WEENIE OF THE WEEK!

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…Detroit Lion Glover Quinn who this week blamed God for Jordy Nelson’s season ending injury. According to Glover, "If [Nelson] wouldn't have got hurt today, if he wouldn't have played in that game, if he wouldn't have practiced anymore, and the next time he walked on the field would have been opening day, I feel like he would have got hurt opening day”…because it was God’s will.


For making God sound like a real a-hole.

For investing his religious beliefs with all the logic of the Final Destination horror movies.

For not realizing that you can't blame god for every single thing that happens in the world that you don't like...that's what Obama is for!

We are proud to name Detroit Lion Glover Quinn as this week's Rick and Len Show...Weenie of the Week.

My final full day in Sturgis for the 75th Annual Bike Rally was a blast. Got into downtown Sturgis and stopped in at One Eyed Jacks where I got an ice cil bottle of water (yes, water, believe it or not) from this little devil. I don't know why she would wear a shirt if she isn't really going to wear it for its intended coverage.

Some other patrons were having an interesting lunch consisting of a shot, whipped cream and a cherry served on the finest dinnerware imaginable.

I checked out the bike manufacturers displays and drooled all over myself at the amazing bikes...especially the new Screaming Eagle line of Harley Davidsons. Then a stroll along the madness and stimulative overload which is Main Street. I  interviewed a couple of Skid Row fans working in nothing but paint for ticket money to the band's concert at one of the  campgrounds here. Mandy and Shelby even told our listeners that the radio guy wasn't too creepy at all. Thanks, girls. Here's your five bucks.

After the broadcast with John and Elwood on the road show, I hit the trail on the Harley Davidson of Appleton machine south to the Mount Rushmore area. The Needles Highway is one of the most incredible rides you can take.

Winding hairpins, otherworldly rock formations, dead presidents on mountains and really narrow one lane (barely) tunnels make for some amazing fun.

You have to be wary of the occupants, though.

I want to thank Festival Foods for sponsoring the trip and Harley Davidson os Appleton for providing the awesome bike. I also would like to thank my workmates at WAPL for picking up some of the slack while I was away...especially Ross Maxwell because he had to babysit Rick.

aug 7th 2015
It has been a crazy Bike Week in Sturgis. I am so thankful that Festical Foods and Harley Davidson of Appleton made it possible for me to do this and actually call it "working."
Wednesday night I wanted to see Crobot at Full Throttle Saloon. The website said 7 p.m. Found out after arrival that they weren't going on until midnight. After an all nighter getting  here followed by some riding, the Road Show broadcast and the general mayhem which is the bike rally, I wussed out and cashed in my last few chips. Nothing left in the tank. I suck at this, right?
Thursday, however, fulfilled lots of what the Sturgis thing is all about. Went for a nice ride up to Deadwood and Lead and then back to Sturgis to hang at the Full Throttle Saloon some more.
I wandered backstage (security never really asked me who I was or what I was doing as I just kept acting like I was somebody important) where I was warmly greeted by the inestimable Jesse James Dupree of Jackyl. We shot the bull on John and Elwood's show and shared a few laughs about his week at FTS. I'd be dead if I tried to keep up with him.

I then just wandered around looking for weirdness. I was butt-deep in it, believe me. Midgets were part of it. As I was on the air, I noticed four lovely topless women with nothing but strategically placed little stickers to cover the naughty bits. They would pose for a photo with guys for tips. The girl I spoke to told me her name and then said, "We're working here." Then she promptly turned away and went back to her soft-core hustling. Why would she be the only rude person I've run into the entire trip? Seems to me that if you have a personality which allows you to walk around naked for all intents and purposes, you would be a little willing to have some fun with the well-intentioned radio guy. I wasn't even all that pervy.

A couple of nice fellas from New Jersey chatted me up a bit. They are renting a house  in nearby Spearfish with 10 guys for $7000 for the week. I need to buy some Black Hills real estate, I guess. They said they stopped for cheese in Wisconsin on their way out. Apparently they bought a while lot of good cheddar. They haven't pooped once since they got here last Saturday. I'm guessing.

People watching is, of course,  unparalleled in Sturgis. Some of them have managed to combine high fashion and literature.

I hooked up with some pals and headed out of Sturgis for one of my favorite rides in the Black Hills, the Spearfish Canyon run. Spectacular beauty at 35 mph. The temperature entering the canyon was about 85 degrees but must have dropped by 15 degrees instantly. It felt soooooo good. I parted ways with my riding companions at the road up to Rochford because I wanted to get out of the deep hills before dark because I know from previous night runs out of Sturgis that the deer are like mosquitoes in Wisconsin. Every where and mostly unseen until it's too late. Still, I had been advised by a Rockin' Apple listener back home that I should make pit stop at a place called  The Boar's Nest outside of Lead. Cool place on the creek with all of the amenities a dude could need. A cold beer and...

As dusk arrived and I was cruising Nemo Road's curves and scenery, There must have been at least a couple of hundred deer in the fields not far off the road. That is NOT an exaggeration. Kind of nerve-wracking but I made it back to Rapid City intact and hungry. I got some fantastically average Chinese food in my gullet and began contemplating my options. Kentucky Headhunters show downtown? A run back to FTS for Jackyl? A stop at a British Pub called The Wobbly Bobby just for he name? Nope. I watched post-Republican debate coverage because nothing could be more fun than that. I am pathetic.
Let's see what tomorrow brings.

I left home Tuesday afternoon and high-tailed it to South Dakota for a four day adventure at the 75th Annual Sturgis Bike Rally. I have a nice Heritage Softail to ride from the fine and beautiful people at Harley Davidson of Appleton (thanks Terry and Troy and the crew).
I got to Rapid City where my hotel is located but they didn't have my room ready,  dang it.

Once they got that squared away it was on to downtown Sturgis for the afternoon broadcast with John and Elwood. I decided (for purely research reasons only) to interview Rachel, a bartender at Easy Riders Saloon.

She seemed to be enjoying herself so I decided to ask her (for scientific purposes this time) if I could demonstrate for WAPL listeners what fishnet stockings sound like by rubbing them with my microphone. By the way, they sounded quite sexy.

I also ran into Tony Caldwell of Appleton. He won some contest in which the prize was an original 100-year-old brick from some Sturgis building. Can't wait to see how he straps that thing to his bike!

More to come tomorrow. Tune in during the 7 a.m. hour and from 3 to 5 p.m. on the Road Show for the moment to moment crazy that is Sturgis 75 made possible by  Harley Davidson of Appleton and Festival Foods...where all the cool bikers shop for groceries.

Was recalling once, as a child being touched inappropriately by a dude with a Bernie Brewer mustache

Has a fear of needles and is afraid they would to hook him up with Ryan Braun’s guy from Bio-genesis.   

Hoping instead of a bobblehead doll, the Brewers  would celebrate his joining the team by giving away Weepy Wilmer dolls. 

He was crying tears of joy of at the prospect of the $1 he would save in property taxes this coming year under the new Wisconsin budget.

Was thinking about a piece of ass that will bring a tear to your eye and how, with the Brewers, he would get to see one in the front row at every home game.

Believes that his tears make rainbows and are delicious, life-giving food for unicorns, one of whom he thought might gallop on to the field, scoop him up and fly him to a city that has a baseball team that DOESN'T regularly get stomped by the Cardinals like a narc at Night of the Juggalos.

We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…the unidentified Milwaukee area man who, Tuesday night, attempted to bag himself some big game. According to police, the man grabbed his gun and shot at what he believed to be the lion that has reportedly been spotted wandering the streets of Milwaukee. Unfortunately, what the man thought was a wild lion was actually somebody’s pet pit bull.

For being unable to tell a dog from a cat…or, apparently, his own ass from a hole in the ground.

For having a trigger finger that’s itchier than the balls of a guy after banging  a Kardashian.

For being afraid of somebody's pet dog and shooting it because he was afraid it was a lion making me thing the lion isn't the biggest pussy in this story.

We are proud to name the guy who shot a dog he mistook for a lion in Milwaukee as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week!

P.S. The dog is expected to recover.

BILL CLINTON…wanted to be at the EAA…but he’s busy this week CLOSELY monitoring the hackers’ release of names of Ashley Madison clients.

ESCAPED MEXICAN DRUG LORD EL CHAPO...wanted to be at the EAA...but while tunneling out of a Mexican prison may have been difficult, it's not nearly as horrible as trying to drive highway 41 in EAA traffic.  

WILLIE NELSON…wanted to be at the EAA…until he learned that even with 10,000 airplanes on site, there are not that can get him hire than he own tour bus.

TIGER WOODS…wanted to be at the EAA…because he was hoping one of the many stunt pilots on hand could teach him how to pull his career out a nosedive.

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MARTIN O’MALLEY …wanted to be at the EAA…until he found out that even the world’s greatest assembly of aeronautic engineers couldn’t figure out a way to get his race for the presidency off the ground.  

THE LION ROAMING THE STREETS OF MILWAUKEE …wanted to be at the EAA…but unlike United and Delta, he's apparently not an air-lion.

BILL COSBY…wanted to be at the EAA since he seems like a perfect fit because usually only plane crashes leave behind as many victims as him.

DONALD TRUMP...wanted to bring his campaign to EAA...but the last thing they need at Airventure this week is something else that's going down in flames.

They've released the schedule for Mile of Music 3, August 6-9 in Appleton and I'm pretty excited. A number of the the out-of-the-area bands I enjoyed last year will be back, such as Wild Adriatic, Cereus Bright, Ruben, and SOOOO many more (together with an AMAZING assortment of local talent!) One of my faves from last year was Pop Goes the Evil from Cincinatti.

For those of you who think Mile is just folk and Americana artists, this clip of Pop Goes the Evil performing at Fox River House should change your mind. Allow me to highlight my favorite moments in the performance as the band takes the stage late Sunday morning completely wiped out, hung over, and giving it every last drop they had left!

0:44 Song starts sweetly enough despite lead singer,  Lucas, being "out of his mind" after 5 performances in 3 days and partying so hard he passed out and slept on the blacktop behind some Appleton bar the night before.

1:52 Song briefly changes tempo, becomes darker and heavier giving us a perview of things to come.

4:16 Lucas climbs on top of Todd who is shooting the video before launching into a Dick Dale-ish surf guitar open to his first solo.

6:40 Lucas launches into another guitar solo during which it appears his soul leaves his body and he is taken over by the spirit of some flailing bad ass rock demon.

7:33 Hey! It's Evan the bass player.

7:50 Jake the dummer attacking the drums like his life depends on it. As we later learn, perhaps it did.

7:56 Lucas starts playing guitar like he has flippers.

8:10 Lucas (or the bad ass rock demon controling his empty vessel) starts to wind it up and bring it home!

9:02 The bad ass demon controling the Lucas vessel briefly attempts to Chicken Dance while still playing guitar.

9:27 Jake the drummer VOMITS!

9:40 Jake finishes the last beats of the song before vomiting over the back a pro...signaling the official end of Mile of Music 2.

Can't wait for this year!  -Rick-
