*Regular Guys History: The Regular Guys hit the big time when they were hired in 1995 by Los Angeles's KLSX 97.1 FM. They were fired in 1997 after Eric and Larry had a hilarious meltdown on the air over station interference of their show. While just a bit, the management failed to see it that way and fired them. After a short while they found themselves in Atlanta, partnered with a good, old boy by the name of Southside Steve Rickman on WKLS 96 Rock. The Regular Guys were first fired in April of 2004 when a graphic interview with pornographic actress was accidentally aired over a commercial. The Regular Guys were rehired by early 2005 on their sister station, WGST Newsradio 640 AM. The format of news radio did not fit with their narrative style, and so they returned to 96 Rock in May. This was lovingly referred to as, “Version 2.0” from 2005-2006. In October of 2006, the Regular Guys Show mysteriously went into reruns. In October of 2006, The Regular Guys show was cancelled under circumstances after Larry recorded a conversation between two Mexican broadcasters while they were in the bathroom. Larry, having just come from a meeting, had his tape recorder on hand and was going #1 when the then-hosts of a radio station entered and went into adjacent stalls. Although they were speaking in Mexican, Larry could tell that in between the homoerotic giggling they were hurling insults at him. Larry got permission from Clear Channel management to play what he had recorded on the air, but the Mexicans sued because, much like their audience had done to America, they claimed Larry invaded their privacy. The lawsuit was thrown out in March of 2007 on the grounds that it was retarded. The Regular Guys returned to Atlanta airwaves on January of 2008 at 6:00 a.m. on a new Rock Station 100.5 FM. In 2008 the original two members of The Regular Guys added third Regular Guy, Southside Steve Rickman to the cast. A sea on ponytail holders fell from the ceiling during inauguration. Big Fat Tim Andrews, the official producer of the show, finally earned his Regular Guy merit badge in December of 2008
*Peteetong: Peteetong was stumbled onto by accident. During Regular Guys 2.0, a stoner named Mike called into The Regular Guys show to tell Larry and Eric about his amazing ability to invent words off the top of his head. Peteetong was one of them. Quite simply, Peteetong is a greeting used by Regular Guys fans to say hello. It bears a striking resemblance to the word Hawaiian word “aloha”, which means both “hello” and “goodbye.” Listen to how it all began HERE.
*Aunt Louisey: During the first month of The Regular Guys 3.0, Regular Guy Eric von Haessler corrected Southside Steve on something that likely had to do with grammar, personal hygiene, or how to do a French braid. This reminded Steve of his Aunt Louise who, throughout Steve’s life, has been a thorn in the side of his ignorance.
*Gwinnexico: Recent approximations put the number of illegals in the state of Georgia between 228,000 (2000 Census) and 250,000. They are probably not all living in Gwinnett County, but most of them are. It is for this reason that Regular Guy Larry Wachs has coined the term, “Gwinnexico,” which, for those of you in Roswell, is a combination of “Gwinnett” and “Mexico.” See, Larry took the “Gwinn” from Gwinnett, and the “-exico” from... ah, forget it.
*The Nazi and the Jew: The Nazi and the Jew refer to the two original Regular Guys. Eric von Haessler, being of German descent, is referred to as “The Nazi,” despite his strong anti-holocaust stance. Larry Wachs, aka “The Jew,” is Jewish, and while not exactly adherent to all of the practices of Judiasm, loves to both be self-deprecating and play the Jew card as often as possible. Many speculate that the only reason Larry is so successful as a radio personality is because, as a member of the Jewish faith.
*The Lemon Test: A trademark of Southside Steve Rickman. During his days as a bartender, Southside Steve developed a surefire way to convince himself of the delusion that he could proceed with the subsequent condom-less act in which he was to partake. According to Steve, lemon juice can be used as an indicator to determine if a woman has a cut or sore in her special area based on how she reacts upon application of the juice. To perform the test, Steve simply slips his hand into his pocket, gives the lemon a squeeze, and slips his hand “around her perimeter.” If she grimaces, that tells Steve it’s time to pull an excuse out of his repertoire and get rid of her ASAP. If she doesn’t grimace, Steve can rest assured that she doesn’t have Herpes or HIV, both of which react painfully to the citric acid present in lemons. Given the abundance of lemons at bars and most of the establishments where Steve would typically pick up the next notch in his bedpost, this test is always readily available. According to Steve, he has performed the Lemon Test 10 times, only once obtaining a positive reaction. In addition to being so resourceful, the Lemon Test’s ability to circumvent the use of a condom saves a LOT of money. Imagine, 389 women, sleeping with each one once, times the cost of a condom at about 40 cents, adjusted for inflation over Steve’s 30 years of promiscuity, comes out to nearly $160- Tim Andrews doesn’t even pay that much to get laid.
*Southside Seven: One of Steve's lesser known names is Southside Seven, a name Steve deservedly earned by being dumb enough to tell Larry this story. During college, Southside Steve and ten of his buddies came across an opportunity with a chick who must've been "on Quaaludes" because she wasn't saying no to anyone that night. Realizing that only a bunch of disgusting animals would go more than one at a time, Steve and his friends drew numbers to determine the lineup- Steve hit it seventh, and apparently right after a black guy or something cause according to Steve there "wasn't much left." Because he doesn't want people to think that he can only get girls who are sedated and in the middle of being gang-banged, Southside Seven still tries to convince people that he earned this nickname because he enjoys drinking Jack Daniels. Unfortunately, other than the guys who drew numbers two through eleven that night, no one's dumb enough to buy that story.
*Pepe the Poodle: Steve recants a tale of a pet dog. Listen!
*Tuna Tuesday: It’s no secret the Regular Guys appeal to men. It’s composed of all men that enjoy manly things like sports, bagging four hundred chicks, or farting into a microphone. However, that doesn’t mean women can’t benefit from listening to The Regular Guys. Who understands women more than a room full of men? Every Tuesday is set aside to cater to our female audience. Anyone can listen but only ladies can call and participate in the show.
