Brief History of the Show

in About

 

The show officially started on January 6, 2002 by Chris Switzer after Rob Leonard of WHPC 90.3-FM "prodded" him to broadcast as a solo act. Finding that to be a bit of a grind, Chris brought in a car-guy friend, Tony Trincilla as a co-host. Tony ran a short course but was a big help, and before closing shop as a solo act Chris brought in former TV show host Steve “The Bronc” Broncatello to help with the heavy lifting. Bronc brought in another TV host who did a motorcycle repair show, and the team of Chris, The Bronc and Mike “Mikey T” Timmons was created. In 2004 Bronc retired from his full time gig and moved West, and the power trio comprising Chris, Mikey T. and Ray Guarino was formed.

Starting in 2010 there was a montage played at the start of every MotorMouth Radio Show. That montage is what Chris & Ray affectionately called the "Promo." These promos were created by Chris with audio clips taken from live calls to the radio show and became a signature of the warm interaction the boys shared with their dedicated listeners.

In 2015 a regular caller who had turned into the MMR “eye in the sky” tech advisor, Joe D. joined our duo in the studio to provide the most up-to-date service repair and diagnostic information the show has ever had. In 2016 after Chris stepped back from the show, Ray & Joe re-formed to include a heavy dose of shop talk coupled with a dose of classis rock as their signature statement. The boys leaned on their Oregonian friend, author, and musician Scotty Gosson to create a new show opener for them…with one caveat, it had to exude the heart and soul of what MotorMouth Radio embodied.

Recorded live by the Scotty Gosson Combo in the retro style that hearkened back to the AM radio dragstrip commercials heard across the land in the 60’s and 70’s, the new show opener was born. Give a listen to this one minute gem and you'll know where we're all coming from as it's a real education. Now let's do a burnout on the automotive asphalt and rocket into the next segment of the show....we never know where it’s going to take us and you, the gearhead listener.

Latest MMR Show

Sunday, March 17, 2019

This week Ray talks about the easiest front end he's ever worked on, Joe relates how to remove the exhaust from a Hummer, then the finer points of rebuilding a Valiant carburetor come up. A Honda with a funky exhaust smell are only eclipsed by our alumni C.C. Switzer's new restoration project Chrysler 300 that reeks of a strong varnish smell. All in all, a typical week on MotorMouth Radio.
