The Top 25 Tremendous Moments of 2019
What are your favorite moments from the past year? We’ve had so many incredible memories from 2019 that to make this list, we had to basically go by web clicks instead of our rusty memories (show amnesia). That being said, if we forget something please feel free to reach out!
25) Dudley & Bob + Matt Make Their Own List
Frustrated by the lack of content on last year's list, the Dudley & Bob + Matt Show wanted nothing to do with this year's countdown and ended the year with a better list. These were some of the incredible moments from the show:
24) Our Comic Friends
Every year you can count on a score of amazing comics to wake up early and pop by the studio. This year featured the return of Carlos Mencia, Nikki Glasser, Martha Kelly and so many more.

23) Sound Effects
Besides social media, sound effects are the most important part of the radio. Here are a few we debuted this year.
22) Spiked Seltzer Wars
Every major brand has pumped out a spiked seltzer but who has the best? The KLBJ crew spent a day getting drunk and answered the question once and for all.
21) KLBJ Tailgate Parties
Texas might not have lived up to expectations this year but the KLBJ tailgates certainly did! With a new location and more space KLBJ boasted one of the best tailgates on the block.
20) Knowleddge From John
If you have listened to KLBJ for the last decade, you probably recognize John’s voice. He’s called Nigel, Charlie, B-DOE, LA Lloyd and was a regular on the CJ Morgan Show. We were informed earlier this year that John had passed. His family also let us know how much he loved calling in and telling his stories on-air.
19) It was the Year of Great DBM Show Bits
The DBM Show is at its best when flowing naturally. It is also great when producers are asked to bring in planned bits and contests that usually result in disaster. These are some of those bits:
- Butt Buddies
Who are better pals? Dan & Chuy or Bob & Matt? Dale and CJ created a game called Butt Buddies to find out.
- Butthurt Wives
The wives of the Dudley & Bob + Matt Show play the butt hurt game. Who ended up the most butt hurt? Listen and find out!
- The Dump Tank
Listeners loved the uncensored stream and #Sideshow podcast so we decided to reintroduce some of the blue back into the show.
- DBM Kart
Some of the weirdest, longest and most confusing contests came from the Captain.
- And so many more like: Don’t @ Me, The pushup contest, Chuy’s dating coach, Lawrence flowing, etc.
18) Click Bait Troll Blogs
Nothing pisses people off more than fake news on the Internet. Our Staff is masterful and creating outrage posts and getting people to waste their day fighting on Facebook. Here are a few notable click bait posts from this year:
17) Carissa Got Married!
Our dear sweet Carissa got married AND IS HAVING A BABY! Congratulations to her and the wonderful groom, Trevor (aka KABONG, aka Guitar Man).
Did you know that it is perfectly safe and legal to throw car batteries in the ocean? According to memes, the practice is good for the environment and has been around for years. CJ Morgan decided to call a few places near the beach to find out for sure.
15) KLBJ Rocks SXSW
KLBJ rocked SXSW at a new location this year - Cooper's BBQ on Congress. The new venue provided good food and drinks for three days of free live music with Jackie Venson, Eric Tessmer, and more!
An improv group from Nashville recently made a public service announcement urging people to move to Austin instead of Nashville. However, they got several of the facts wrong in their cute little video so we decided to clap back with this one which went viral on Facebook.
13) More Classic Danielisms
Daniel being Daniel is a huge part of why the DBM Show is as great as it is. So many people have asked if he is a character or if the show is scripted. No, you can’t script this genius.
Every week B-DOE rocks you from 10a-2p but did you know he also hosts a show featuring many of the amazing Austin area non-profits? For years Local Insights has been a staple of KLBJ connecting with our community.
11) The Tattoo Bet
At the beginning of the year, CJ Morgan made a bet with some of the TXRD girls. If he lost, he would have to get the winning team’s name tattooed on his body. He lost the bet and invited a bunch of derby girls to party with him on air while getting some new ink.
10) Chuy's Dating Life
Our private lives always manage to become public and Chuy’s dating life took center stage this year. From memorable stories over failed dates (the girl who ditched him for a night of blow, the girl who got in a wreck, the girl who dumped him because he dissed her on air etc.), to his photoshoot and his dating counselor Crista Beck – 2019 has been the year finding Chuy love. We only have a few more weeks BTW.

9) The #Warriors Come Through Again
For years, a dedicate group of trolls and DBM Show fans have come together to help each other and the community. This year we lost super fan Big Tom and the #Warriors rallied and put on a wonderful service for him at Mister Tramps. In addition everything else they have done, the #Warriors helped us raise over $10,000 for Breaking & Entering!
Dudley and Bob with Matt Breaking & Entering 2019
We talk a lot of shit on-air but this year we decided to put a few things to the test resulting in these live challenges.
- Tamale Taste Test
Can Chuy tell the difference between his mother's tamales and Cosco's? He thinks he can but perhaps this video tells a different tale...
A= Tony P's
C= Chuy's Mom
Can the gang identify which car Chuy hot boxed? Watch and find out!
7) Our Very Own 'Wack Pack'
This year we amassed quite a crew of weirdos and interesting characters who became regulars n the DBM Show. Viral porn star Tesla Taylor, Alien Andrea, Flat Earth Andy, Nikki Pelley and Ol’ Rusty to name a few.
Speaking of characters..
No one on the show was more special and close to our hearts than former intern Lawrence. The gang even took Lawrence out, gave him a makeover, and set him on a date via our friends at OnSpeedDating.

5) Live Moontower Sideshow Featuring Ron Bennington, Joe DeRosa, and Rich Vos + How Dale Ruined Ron's Sobriety
For the third straight year we kicked off the Moontower Comedy Festival with a live #Sideshow at Cap City Comedy Club featuring our friend Ron Bennington. Backstage at the podcast, Dale ruined 22 years of Ron’s sobriety.
