- He's crude. He's rude. And Cleveland loves him.
He hasn't, so Rover tosses a softball: I don't know," says a clearly annoyed Mike D. You seem to have a lot of answers. Otherwise, I'll just hang up right now. Mike D seems taken aback. When he finds his voice, he explains exactly why the new album took so long. Listening to the playback, Rover smiles. Mike D sounds like a total pussy.
During lunch at Harry Buffalo, Rover talks about fame in Cleveland. At a recent Tribe game, guys a few rows back began chanting, "Cleveland loves you! As if on cue, the waiter -- a shaggy-haired Strokes look-alike -- identifies Rover's voice. It's a good show. Rover, whose real name is Shane French, was born in Chicago but grew up in Las Vegas, the son of a doctor and a nurse.
They don't give a shit. While working at a Denver station, Rover hooked up with a porn star named Raylene. After their first date, she slept in his bed naked, but nothing happened. Then you get one in bed, and you're like, 'How many guys have waded through this forest?
They dated for a year, during which she continued to do porn shoots. Now Rover keeps his private life more discreet.
Sure, he talks about his girlfriend on the radio. When she instituted a "no-farting policy" at home, he told listeners, "That's why you have a long-term girlfriend, so you can fart in front of her and not worry about it.
Rover will say only that her name is Susan, she's 33, works as a talent coach for on-air personalities, and they've been dating for four years. Rover broke into the radio business on the heels of a botched lie. At 20, he auditioned in Las Vegas with a sample tape purporting to be from a Milwaukee station. Program Director Mike Stern, who was familiar with the station, called his bluff.
Rover confessed; Stern hired him anyway. Stern was further impressed with Rover's work ethic. A lot of the best shows convey that we just walked in here and we're having fun all morning. He went to Los Angeles to do a syndicated talk show, where he met Duji, who remembers the general manager telling her that Rover was bound for the big time. He's gonna be a shining star. The station had a no-nudity policy, which Rover had no intention of following.
He says he was told to lie if asked about it.

So when the general manager asked about a gimmick called "the Tuna Tank" -- which had nude women writhing in a window facing the street -- Rover claimed the girls wore bathing suits. The station's general manager learned the truth and fired him for lying. Rover spent the next few months editing video presentations for lawyers.Jeffrey Busts in On Guy With Wife
The station had switched formats in Mayabandoning jammin' oldies to join the ever-growing ranks of the Xtreme. It built an audience of young males with Opie and Anthony's syndicated afternoon show.
But when the jocks got fired for broadcasting a live account of a couple playing hide-the-bishop during a service at St. Program Director Kim Monroe settled on Rover.
Rover's Morning Glory -- named, appropriately, after the first erection of the day -- debuted in March of last year. The crew wanted to make an immediate impact. The setup was a game called "Helium for Headbangers," in which listeners guessed how high balloons would lift household objects, including a sponge, a set of car keys, and a light bulb. Then came Jinxy, the station intern's cat. That's when the stunt went out the window. Somebody help me, please! This is truly awful.
They reported aerial sightings, beseeching police and firefighters to do something. Then, at the urging of the police, Rover admitted that he had made the whole thing up. That night, Rover and crew watched themselves on the TV news. Word of the prank spread.

The Los Angeles Times described it on its front page. The London Independent mentioned it in a wrap-up of the wackiest stories of A Denver station copied the prank with similar success. For Lunchbox, it was a sign that the show had arrived: The show is scheduled to go live any minute, but Rover is nowhere to be found. Rover preps for each show the night before by surfing the internet and jotting down interesting stories.
He lives a short walk from the station, which means that the man paid to make other people's commutes tolerable has no commute at all. Minutes after leaving home, he glides into the studio, hits a button, and suddenly he's on the air. For the next four hours, Rover is a louder, brasher, more boorish version of himself.
He jokes about how funny it would have been if the pallbearers had dropped Ronald Reagan's coffin down the Capitol steps. He coaxes Dieter into making himself pass out, even after a listener says her brother almost died doing the same thing.
He calls women "dirty little sluts" as casually as most people call cabs and tells one year-old Paris Hilton replica, "If I were with you, your bedroom would be like Abu Ghraib.
I would beat you worse than those Iraqi prisoners. But Rover says he never feels guilty. The closest he came was when he speculated about whether a guy he works with is gay. But Duji suffered the most lasting damage. It started when she told Rover that her sister-in-law suspected her husband of cheating. Rover called the woman up and coaxed her to give him a phone number, written in feminine handwriting, that she had found in her husband's luggage.
Rover then called the mistress, pretending to be Duji's brother, and outed the affair to all of Cleveland. Duji's brother managed to repair the damage to his marriage, but Duji remains ostracized from her family. Still, she says it was worth it. Some say that the comparison is inevitable.

A large party is held for the release of the calendar usually in November or Decemberwhich usually has all 12 girls in the calendar and everyone from the show on hand to autograph copies of the calendar. Over the next couple of months Dieter trained with a professional fight instructor for his first boxing match.
Rover worked with the City of Cleveland to shut down a street in the downtown area, had a ring erected in the middle of the road and brought in beer-vending trucks. Police estimated over 12, people came out to see the three-round fight, forcing the fight to start almost an hour early because of crowd control concerns. Esch knocked Dieter down a number of times during the fight, but each time Dieter was able to get up before the ten-count.
Esch has since been in-studio and participated in other events with the show. The League of Extraordinary Morons[ edit ] The League of Extraordinary Morons consists of "Jackass"-style stunts where cast member compete to win money or a new car.
