  1. Mary stinks! She is kissing Brian's butt big time. Would love for her to take the lead. She laughs and is not taking the lead. Mary where are you. Second seat to Brian? He mesed up today...where were you? ok guys , Mary and Brian out....lets get a really awesome team. Ask for audience contributions. OR you are all fired!

  2. Marlene is all wet. I enjoy Mary and Brian's interaction and i don't hear any butt-kissing!

  3. Mary Walter is awful. I can't listen to this show anymore. Please replace her. She is sooooo annoying.

  4. Mary Walter sounds like a bimbow. Get rid of her.

  5. Mary Walter is beyond annoying. Please, please get rid of her WMAL.
