Radio Bam Review

Radio Show: Radio Bam, Sirius XM Faction Radio

Episode: Show #248

Original Broadcast: 16th May 2011

Everyone needs a jackass in their life, and Bam Margera is probably one of the best. His longstanding and sometimes erratic radio show always seems to be an off-the-cuff affair, lacking any structure or prepared features.

In this show Margera is in Quebec City, disucussing his newfound Twitter addiction and regaling his listeners with bizarre anecdotes, such as a prom that he’s contractually obliged to go to with an 18 year old girl from Calgary and encouraging his Twitter followers (‘twits’) to bombard his mam with Happy Mother’s Day texts and calls after posting her phone number on the site.

Margera makes some surprisingly indie song choices (Ladyhawke, who’d have thunk it?) interspersed with the likes of Pennsylvanian natives Hail Social. For all of the show’s disorganised content there’s something appealing about their “I don’t give a fuck, I’m not Howard-fucking-Stern” approach. It’s not polished, it’s not organised and a lot of the time it doesn’t make sense, but that’s what makes the show so listenable. Switch off your brain and switch on Radio Bam.
