You Need a Pop-Tart For That Toaster

You Need a Pop-Tart For That Toaster

Adam and Ray discuss the Carolla One Studios remod, and the only time Adam was demoralized on a construction site.


Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam and Ray chat about the offices being built in the back of the studio. They also talk about the messy situation on the roof, but agree that overall things are going very well. Later, Adam talks about a scary experience trying to move the walls of his living room, and describes his perfect chimney recreation.

In the second half of the show, the guys respond to a couple emails about broken doors and replacing locks. They also take calls about finishing off a basement, and mounting a TV over a freestanding fireplace. As the show wraps up, Ray talks about the time he worked on a gay bath house, and the guys reminisce on some very drunk times.

      What’s up HBDC-

      The new logo should be up on iTunes and the app, and we’ve got a sweet new banner that should be up shortly.

    love the show, loose the background music, trying to listen to caller, music distracting, allready trying to tune out kids, don’t need more background noise. Ray rules!

      the background music has already been loosed upon us; we would prefer that they rein in the music. yes, very distracting.

        @stnuntrnd: Ummm….do you mean “lost” upon us? Or is that you Oswaldo?

    Ray’s a great character but it seems like Ace contradicts EVERY suggestion Ray has on everything.

      I agree…I’m starting to get sick of ace being such a dick. Almost wishing it was just Ray on the House…almost.

    Ray and Ace agree 87% of the time.

    Does the 13% make good radio? Sure, but don’t rewrite history.

    I was wondering is the new studio part of your previous garage? It sort of looks like your garage.

    Why is Ray wearing boots in these pictures? I thought he only did construction in flip flops??

      Maybe Ace made him dig out the boots he bought for him on the ACP?
