GLENN: Let me go to Chris, who is the general manager and President. Are you the president of this company?
Chris: President now, yes. You promoted me.
Glenn: Well, that's and it's important, too.
Caller: Yeah, yeah.
Glenn: So, anyway, Chris, you had an interesting weekend. Stu will not tell me what happened to you this weekend.
Chris: Well, I think it's for good reason. I think we all needed to find this out together.
Chris: So, on Saturday night I decided to go to Madison square garden to view a concert by the Eagles. You know the Eagles?
Glenn: Yes, I do know the Eagles.
Chris: And so I'm sitting there minding my own business, watching the Eagles concert and they're playing all the hits, hotel California.
Chris: Boys of Summer.
Glenn: End of Innocence? Is it End of Innocence? What is the end of
Stu: End of the Innocence. Those are all Don Henley songs.
Glenn: Well, I know. I'm trying to think of Don Henley is the one that really drives me out of my mind.
Chris: Take it to the limit. Yeah. Good quality stuff.
Glenn: Good quality stuff. How were they?
Chris: They were actually very good and so then another song comes on, Dirty Laundry.
Glenn: Oh, boy.
Chris: Do you remember this song?
Glenn: Oh, I love this song. It's a Don Henley long. Can you play a little of Dirty Laundry? Yes.
Chris: And during Dirty Laundry, they have a full screen, you know, like a full kind of like whole stage screen behind them.
Glenn: I have a feeling I know where this is going and it's not going to turn out well for me?
Chris: Well, Glenn, they had a video montage that they had produced running behind them during the song and the highlight of that video montage was you.
Glenn: At the Eagles concert?
Chris: At the Eagles concert featured, I would say, prominently during the song was highlights from the Glenn Beck program.
Glenn: Can we sue them?
Chris: They have a lot of money. We were in good company because the other people that were in this video Monday damage were Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Jerry Springer.
Glenn: Jerry Springer?
Chris: Hang on. Rupert Murdock and you.
Glenn: Me. Well, that's the evil, right there! Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rupert Murdock, Jerry Springer, and me.
Stu: The expanded axis of evil.
Glenn: That would be fantastic. I'll have to go to an Eagles concert. Now they can say it to my face!
Chris: What if you just stood on the stage while they were performing the song?
Glenn: You don't know what these guys are singing. Listen to me. You're going to die.
Stu: Congratulations, Glenn, you are now the example of evil journalism.
Glenn: I'm just giving dirty laundry.
Glenn: How many times have I said on the air, I can't take it, I can't take the dirty laundry
Stu: Right. Because we used to play this song all the time, kind of like as far as, like, giving an example of that. Shockingly enough, it's now turned around.
Chris: It was mostly real story clips, by the way.
Glenn: Like what did they show?
Chris: A lot of real story graphics about you shouting about oil.
Glenn: Oil, yeah! That would be the thing, too, because you know, you've got everybody in the audience going, yeah! Yeah. That oil thing, that's not a problem. Like, what was I could you hear me? Did you hear any reaction from the crowd, because we're not even known in New York.
Chris: No, no. I think if there was booing, it was Bill O'Reilly or for Murdock.
Glenn: Rupert Murdock?
Stu: Tour dates, the next date, Philadelphia, July 14th at the Wachovia Center.
Glenn: July 14th. Okay. So, that's Saturday. That's a week from Saturday. So
Chris: Of July.
Glenn: Oh, July. We need somebody that's a long wait. Of what are they what, are they talking the walkers to Philadelphia?
Stu: On their website it says the next date is July 14th.
Chris: I think they take a little time to roll in their money between concerts.
Glenn: How much were the tickets?
Chris: Yeah. So, yeah.
Glenn: Did you have good seats for $189?
Chris: I mean, I wasn't, like, front row or anything. I mean
Glenn: You guys are all too young. I remember when the Jacksons went on tour when Michael Jackson was really, really hot, and I think the tickets were $19 and people went crazy. People were, like, $19? This better be one damn good show! $19 now, you would be, like, am I inside? Does that just get me into the parking lot? Do I have to put my ear up to the glass door?
Chris: I kid you not. My ticket master service charge was $19.
Chris: That was just on top of the ticket price.
Glenn: Now I feel like it's a deal to come to our show this week. How much are tickets to our show?
Chris: 35 to 45.
Glenn: That's an outrage. Worth every dime but
Stu: You should be 145, apparently. I mean, you could see Glenn Beck on stage live for $45 or you could see him on screen with the Eagles for 189.
Glenn: Why not see the real thing? I mean, I'm just saying. Chris, thanks, man.
Glenn: All right. Bye.
Glenn: I'm becoming that guy. I don't want to be that agree.
Stu: The evil guy? I mean, you have no choice.
Glenn: I'm the evil guy. I know. Do you know if I just had do you know if I just had the flip opinion, do you know how big we would be?
Stu: Yeah. Of oh, I'm seeing it now on YouTube here Glenn.
Glenn: They have it on YouTube?
Stu: It's on YouTube. Yes. There it is.
Glenn: Can't we sue them? Get Joe on the phone. Will you?
Stu: We can't sue them.
Glenn: Why not? They have deep pockets. Let's go for it. It's the American way. Joe is here. That's what he does.
Stu: Yeah. I don't think he would be comfortable with that analysis of what he does.
Glenn: Oh, he's a scumbag attorney and he knows it.
Stu: He's an attorney. I don't know that he would consider himself a scumbag.
Glenn: Oh, he's not personally a scumbag but every attorney, you've got to have a degree of scumbag if you. I mean, I think even Joe will say that.
Stu: Yeah, he probably would. Yes, do I see Jerry Springer clips and then it flashes to Bill O'Reilly. Oh and Elizabeth Hasselbeck has made it.
Glenn: Oh, she's such a dirt bag.
Stu: How evil is Elizabeth Hasselbeck? And then the Morning Show on FOX.
