History

The original "Y100 Morning Show with Preston, Marilyn, and Steve"
The original "Y100 Morning Show with Preston, Marilyn, and Steve"

After four successful years of (then known as) The Y100 Morning Show with Preston, Marilyn, and Steve, Marilyn Russell left the morning show on March 1, 2002 for family reasons. She has worked part time on many stations in the Philadelphia area since then, including WMGK, and SoJo 104.9, and currently broadcasts part time from WMMR's rival WYSP. Preston and Steve called Marilyn on their last Y100 broadcast, but unfortunately could not reach her. Although they rarely mention Marilyn, she has contributed to the Camp Out for Hunger over the years and they remain friends. WPLY's owner, Dan Lerner, one of the last independent owners in the Philadelphia market, sold the station to Radio One, a national broadcasting corporation, in 2001. Ironically, Radio One was the same group that bought Preston, Marilyn & Steve's previous radio station 103.9 WDRE. Radio One and Preston and Steve did not successfully negotiate a new contract, and the personalities agreed to a deal with local broadcasting group Greater Media. Preston and Steve's contract with Radio One expired on February 24, 2005 and Y100 changed format and became WPHI The Beat at 11:50 p.m. EDT that same day. This image is copyrighted. ...

A legal battle between Radio One and Preston and Steve over their non-compete clauses was resolved by a ruling that they were no longer in competition with WPLY. Their new show officially debuted on the air on Monday, May 23, 2005.[1].

Prize games

On the show, numerous promotional items are available to be given away to listeners of the show. These items range from a simple case of this month's beer sponsor (such as Bass Pale Ale or Miller Lite) to concert tickets to minor and major bands.


5 In 10

When the caller is put on the air, they will be prompted by one of the cast members to give them 5 examples of a given subject in 10 seconds, e.g. "OK, in 10 seconds give me 5 types of sandwiches... go". Despite the apparent ease of this, the cast has been reduced to asking for "five examples of grunts", "five different colors", or at the worst of it "5 seconds of silence".


Crackshot

In this game, each of the participating show regulars claims to be an expert in a certain category. Categories include '80s movies (Preston), science fiction or horror movies (Steve), Phish or 80's sitcoms (Casey), Pearl Jam (Nick), and The Simpsons (Marisa). A listener calls and asks a question related to the category (the listener picks the expert). If the listener stumps the expert, he/she gets a prize and designates a regular as the shooter. The stumped expert must bend over while the shooter shoots him/her in the rear with a BB gun but first rolls a die to determine how many pumps go into the gun. If the die lands on 6, the expert then gets to choose who gets shot. The process could continue indefinitely if 6's are rolled. Kathy usually refuses to play, although she has been allowed to be a shooter even when not playing. A test was performed in the studio to demonstrate that after 4 or 5 pumps a shot can shatter a plate of tempered glass. Science fiction is a form of speculative fiction principally dealing with the impact of imagined science and technology, or both, upon society and persons as individuals. ... “Horror Movie” redirects here. ... This article is about the band. ... A sitcom or situation comedy is a genre of comedy performance originally devised for radio but today typically found on television. ... This article is about the rock group. ... Simpsons redirects here. ...


Porno, Or No

A game based on a simple yes or no style answer from the listener, Preston will read of the name of an Adult Movie, and the listener must decide if that title is the name of an actual adult film or not. This takes from the fact that many adult films will have names from popular culture, such as "Shaving Ryan's Privates" and "Poke-her-hot-ass".


Country or Crock

A variation of Porno, or No, Country or Crock has listeners guess whether an offered country song title is legitimate by saying "country" (for yes) or "crock" (for no). The title of the game is a play on the Country Crock brand of spreadable products.


Poo Dollar! (Poo Porn)

In this game, a member of the show (usually Casey) will go do an undisclosed location, wipe his ass with a dollar bill (or porn movie) and place it in plain sight of anyone walking by. Each caller has a one-minute period for someone to pick up the dollar (or porn). If someone does pick it up, Casey yells "Poo Dollar!" to the person with a megaphone.


1-800-Your-name here

Possibly the most original game in their arsenal, the cast will tell listeners to call in and give up to 7 letters in their name. For example: John Walsh would give them J-O-H-N-W-A-L. They would then dial the corresponding letters on the phone with the 1-800 prefix. The caller will win a prize (sometimes of their choice) if they reach a real person. The first time a listener happened to hit a sex line, they were so impressed they set the precedent of giving two prizes instead of one. They has also added the prefix of 1-888, 1-866, 1-877.


Assword

Played similar to the game show "Password", callers pick their team-mates among the cast and are given one word clues to give them the clinical term for the sexual term they're hinting at, such as "Center" for nipple or "Evacuate" for urinate.


Toddler Theater

Occasionally Preston will record his two sons, Parker and Carter, acting out lines from well known movies, and will have callers attempt to name the movie. Often the lines will have obscene language that is censored out, leaving many listeners wondering whether they actually do drop the curses or whether Preston has them substitute other words.


Butt Plug Karaoke

Casey will insert a butt plug into his mouth and will sing a line or two from a song. Callers must figure out what song Casey is singing. Casey has also been known to substitute a ball gag in place of the butt plug. Butt plugs are sex toys that are designed to be inserted in the anus and rectum for sexual pleasure. ...


What-you-say Jose?

The original version of "Buttplug Karaoke", Jose (their janitor friend from their original building) will perform a spoken-word version of a song in his best English (which in itself, is the actual challenge).


Spelling Bee

Callers have to decide if Intern Jeremy or Marisa, who are notoriously bad spellers, can spell the word given to them by Preston. Preston will give the part of speech, definition, and a funny sentence in an attempt to help the spellers with the word.


Hollywood Three-Way

Callers decide what actor/actress has appeared in the three films or television shows that are listed by one of the gang. For example, Steve might say, "Independence Day, Enemy of the State, and Ali". The answer would be Will Smith.


Keep Your Mom On The Line

Callers must conference in their mothers and greet them with an outlandish catch phrase used on the show (e.g. - "Big brown Guatemalan nipples"). The object of the game is for the caller to repeat the phrase, without their mothers hanging up or uttering profanity, for 60 seconds.


One to One-Million

Callers must guess a randomly picked number between One and One-Million. After each guess, the hosts would tell the listeners if it is "higher" or "lower" to let the other listeners know in which direction the number is. On Wednesday October 3, 2007, the hosts changed the range to One to Three-Million, in honor of the three million fans who came out to Citizens Bank Park that season. is the 276th day of the year (277th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Publicity events

Camp Out for Hunger

For several years the show has held an annual "Camp Out For Hunger", in which both Elliot and Morrison live in a trailer for one week in December to raise food for the Greater Philadelphia Food Bank. The show awards prizes to individuals and groups that donate the most food. Since 1998, the event has raised hundreds of tons to feed the hungry around Philadelphia. Each of the last three years shattered the previous years' record collection amount for the "Philabundance" organization, with 87.4 tons in 2005, 151 tons in 2006, and 232 tons in 2007 (as well as $27,000 in cash). This is the largest single location food drive in the United States. Year 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display full 1998 Gregorian calendar). ...


Month of Stunts

In April 2002 and 2003, the show performed a month-long publicity stunt called "Casey's Month of Stunts". During the month, sidekick and producer "Caseyboy" performed various stunts on the streets of Philadelphia, or in the broadcast studio. One stunt was performed every day, until Casey was injured nearing the end of the second full month. The stunts were varied, but always involved inflicting some sort of physical harm upon "Caseyboy" while he held either a station microphone or his cell phone, and were broadcast live over the air. Stunts included: Rolling down the Art Museum's stairs while wrapped in Bubble Wrap, driving a car into a pond, being towed around an ice rink by a Zamboni while sitting down with no pants, and having a pitching machine fire baseballs at his genitals. The stunts were also filmed and the video was posted on the show's website. A short film directed by former Y100 DJ and current filmmaker John Von titled Kill Casey! was created from footage of the 2002 version of "Casey's Month of Stunts", and a DVD of Kill Casey! was released with Y100's Sonic Sessions Volume 8 CD.

In May 2006, Preston and Steve reprised the "Month of Stunts", in a lesser frequency (three per week instead of one per day), and using Intern Joe instead of Casey. Intern Joe completed a number of stunts, including receiving a tattoo on his "taint", driving around in a pick-up truck covered in horse manure (called the "Poop Coupe"), standing between two sumo wrestlers while they were fighting, partaking in an activity known as the "Human Piñata", being pulled by a horse across a farm, being fired upon by a woodchipper with various objects inserted, and also towering over the ground on a toilet for 24 hours (mocking magician David Blaine's attempt to live in water for a week.)

Also known as their "Public Service Announcement", this annual tradition typically occurs on the last weekday before the 4th of July weekend. In 2004, Kathy got drunk live on the air, a show which has been cited as a favorite of the cast and crew as well as listeners. In subsequent years, Casey (2005) and Nick (2006) joined Kathy. Nick and Marissa replaced Kathy, who declined to participate in 2007.

Science Day

Since the spring of 2005, The Preston and Steve Show has hosted an annual Science Day. On that day, the show uses strange science experiments as fillers instead of their normal conversations. These experiments have involved various home made explosives such as dry ice bombs, and experiments involving liquid nitrogen, such as freezing and breaking various things, or making ice cream. These experiments are usually followed by the show crew screaming "SCIENCE!" accompanied by a clip from the song Weird Science. The clip of Steve screaming "THAT WAS AWESOME" comes from the experiment where they set off the dry ice bomb. This is one of their more popular shows, rivaling the Fourth of July PSAs. A dry ice bomb is a simple bomb-like device typically made from a plastic bottle, water and dry ice. ...

Painfully Single Mixers

The Preston and Steve Show hosts these mixers for listeners at different locations. Occurring roughly every two months, single listeners of the show can reserve a spot at the mixer by providing their personal information to the jocks. Elliot and Morrison make the final decision as to who gets to attend; those who get in get a chance to meet others, start a relationship, possibly hook-up, and meet the cast and crew of the show. There have been several weddings that have resulted from the mixers. Suitor redirects here. ...


Philly's Hottest

Preston and Steve have reinstated another tradition from their Y100 days on WMMR, the "Philly's Hottest" Competition. Selecting a category, such as "Philly's Hottest Student", or "Philly's Hottest Healthcare Worker", female listeners and paid models that qualify for the category that submit their pictures will have their photographs posted on the radio station's website. Listeners and visitors to the station's website then vote (a process that takes normally one to two weeks), after which a winner is decided.


As of 2007, Philly's Hottest Sponsor, Steven Singer Jewelers, known for its viral "I Hate Steven Singer" campaign, created the exclusive Philly's Hottest Necklace. Valued at $2,000, the necklace can only be obtained by winning the Philly's Hottest contest. Not only do they win the exclusive necklace, but Steven Singer Jewelers provides the winners with a $500 piece of jewelry, and a $500 gift certificate for redemption in store.


10,000 Marbles

To celebrate the anticipated 10,000th loss in Philadelphia Phillies franchise history, Nick rolled 10,000 marbles down the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum as Bill Weston (WMMR's program director) looked on.

The Vag Launch

Once a year the show launches a blow up sex doll equipped with baloon from the roof of a building. The doll is filled with a prize and many people try to catch it. In 2008 they launched a second: Sputdick. Nick and Uncle Pierre have done the broadcast from the launch site.
