The guys behind Bubba the Love Sponge® speak

June 14th, 2011 by Staff

As anyone who listens to radio on a regular basis probably knows, Bubba the Love Sponge® is one of the most popular radio personalities to ever talk into a mike. Every morning, listeners to BTLS, 102.5, The Bone, here in the Tampa, Florida tune in by the droves to listen to Bubba and the guys discuss the news of the day.

Today, though, we sit down with Bubba’s crew, the guys behind the man (and, as they would probably tell you themselves, there’s plenty of room back there) for a Q&A, using the questions one everyday listener, like yourself, would like to ask.

So, on behalf of Manson, Ned, Spice and Brent … enjoy!!

 

Question #1) DOES IT EVER BOTHER YOU TO HAVE YOUR PERSONAL LIVES BECOME PART OF THE SHOW?

Manson:

1. Sometimes, but everyone on the show, realizes that is part of the “deal”. Plus, that’s what makes the show so good.

Ned:

1. No, my personal life is unbelievably compelling.

Spice:

1. It used to bother me when I was younger, but over time I have become numb to it. It has ruined a lot of relationships though.

Brent:

1.Yes. I don’t like attention at all. I’m an observer. However, I hate being observed. Bubba loves making observations. The day the show stops making me uncomfortable, I’ll know it’s not good. Not a day goes by that I don’t cringe inside. That’s when I know that Bubba is hitting the right marks.

Question #2) WHAT IS THE MOST INTERESTING PART OF WORKING WITH BUBBA?

Manson:

2. Never knowing what is going to happen at any given time during the show.

Ned:

2. Watching Bubba slip further, and further into insanity every day.

Spice:

2. Everyday is an adventure, but I would say the most interesting part is seeing how he interprets the news of the day. Most media outlets take the traditional approach, but Bubba has the ability to see through the facade and analyze the true facts that 99% of media won’t report. Plus the naked chicks are pretty cool.

Brent:

2.Each day there’s a new challenge. Which, is what I love, the mental problem solving. Bubba presents a whole host of issues that need to be worked through. It’s never a boring day at work

Question #3) DO YOU EVER GET TIRED OF CHICKEN DIP AND NASCAR STORIES?

Manson:

3. Yes, yes, yes, and yes again.

Ned:

3. What was the question? I was sleeping.

Spice:

3. No, how could I possibly become sick of hearing about shredded chicken with sauce and tales of grown men turning left for 4 hours…(that’s my sarcasm speaking)

Brent:

Yes.

Question #4) IF YOU WERE TRAPPED ON A DESERT ISLAND WITH ONE PERSON FROM YOUR SHOW, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Manson:

4. No one. They cannot be trusted.

Ned:

4. Bubba. Once I killed him in his sleep, I would have meat for weeks. Actually, I wouldn’t kill him. I would just sever his arms and legs one at a time, so as to keep the meat fresh.

Spice:

4. Probably Manson because he makes me laugh hysterically, however if the island had no food then I would choose Bubba because he’s got a lot of meat on those bones.

Brent:

4. I hate these questions. It would probably be Spice, because together we could figure out how to get off of said island, and Spice won’t need as much food.

Question #5) IF YOU COULD CREATE YOUR OWN “CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH” WHO WOULD YOU PICK TO FIGHT AND WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO DIE?

Spice:

5. Me VS. John Lynch…ask my ex girlfriend and his current Wife why.
Brent:

5. I would like to see Anderson Silva and Michael Vick. Obviously Vick would be demolished, like he did to those defenseless dogs.
