Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam complains about the workers in his house who refuse to put down towels where they leave their tools. He also rants about Ozzie’s wife scratching up his sink back in the day. Ray tells a story about an argument he got into at a plumbing store, and the guys answer an email question regarding how to improve someone’s dryer vent. Based on another email, Adam then recalls the time he installed a closet in the wrong house.

The first caller has a question about metal roofing, then the guys discuss the origins of the D.T.R. parties, which Ray gleefully recalls crashing. They also talk to a caller who wants to build a removable stair railing leading to his basement, and the show wraps with a call from someone dealing with a rotting patio cover.

      I’ve enjoyed Ray on the show, but I listen to the podcast at work with headphones, and Ray has a tendency to scream into the mic. PLEASE tell him to yell aside or something… For those of us
      with earbuds in, it’s painful. I’ve had to skip parts because
      I can’t take the yelling.

      Besides that, love the show!!

    Ray is a great addition to the show. It was awesome listening to them analyze the first photo and find all the problems with it.

    Ray has turned this show from a lazy Sunday afternoon listen to one of my Saturday highlights. The network is really coming together.

    The greatness of this show is summed up like this:

    Ray: “Since when did you become a European-fag version of yourself?”
    Ace: “Shit, I have to wear the glasses and I say fuck it with the hair so I just put on a cap.”
    Ray: “Alright, alright. Look, you haven’t been in the game in awhile, Ace, so I’ll field this question.”
    Ace: “Oh yeah? Have you ever owned a dryer, Oldhafer?”
    Ray: “Next question, Matt.”
    Ace: “You’re 48 years old, never owned a dryer.”
    Ray: “And maybe I feel bad about it, okay? Next call, Matt!”

    Love, love, love Adam! Ray is an awsome addition. I love this show not because I’m into construction, but, because I don’t have to listen to an annoying co-host trying to be funny. Adam & Ray are natural together. Forced chemistry on the daily Podcast. This show flows! Love it!

    Ray is a great addition to the show. He and Adam play off each other very well. Any thoughts about having Ozzy on?

    I agree, don’t screw it up Ray. Ace and Ray are excellent at playing catch when it comes to conversation, so keep up the good work.

    Don’t Tell Ray….but I think we found his true calling. AND, Adam can’t bitch about him wearing flip-flops on this gig!

    Love having Ray on the show. How about some short how-to videos with Ray? Also, how about triple teaming it with Strommer?

    Oh and on behalf of Portland, OR we’d like Ray to come visit us on your guy’s next visit.

    Kudos to Ray. He’s good at getting more out of Adam. Example: I heard the ABC Closet story a few times over the years…VERY FUNNY…but never heard the aftermath about pulling the out the installed closet and essentially high-tailing it to the correct address!! Leaving a path of destruction in its place.

    Great to hear you compliment Adam’s stories Ray… keep ‘em coming! How about your take on the Jack in the Box ass-rooster-tail story??

    Uncanny! I had just had to kick off the little Chinese gardening couple off my front porch (with complete picnic lunch spread out) who gardens ACROSS the freakin street from us. Then I put on the headphones on and do a little run, only to hear Adam rant about the ballsyness of workers not taking a little extra care with the owners’ property. The couple never had a clue that I was pissed off, and wanted to chat about when they used to do the gardening at my house (20 years ago). Great show! Great Ray!

    Ray is Great! – kicked it up a notch – like to hear Ray and Ozzy on one too – when you had the show on TLC (?) – the “Adam Carolla Project” – Ray dove into the neighbor’s pool – by the end of the series, she was bringing him beers while he was floating around – what’s Ray’s thing with standing bodies of water? – maybe he’s part labrador? – Thanks for the laughs
