The Bob & Tom Show is a syndicated US radio program established by Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold at radio station WFBQ in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1983, and syndicated nationally since 1995.
Being owned by Clear Channel Communications, a media conglomerate which owns more than a thousand radio stations, the program enjoys extensive penetration. The program has frequently received recognition by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) as an exemplar in American radio.[1]

The show is hosted by Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold; they are joined by Chick McGee who acts as sports commentator as well as comic foil, and Kristi Lee, the shows news anchor and occasional target of the show's humor. The show is a comedy variety show with significant interaction with their listeners. Each day, there are usually several guests on the show, including many comedians seeking a national fan base, but also sports stars, rich debutantes and other celebrities and pseudo-celebrities. During the show, pre-recorded comic songs and skits are often played, including many from a large library of archived pieces. The show airs 6 A.M.-10 A.M. EST on all the affiliate stations. There is another 15 minute segment that ends at 10:15 EST, only on home station WFBQ. They organize and support the Bob and Tom Radio: The Comedy Tour shows. They are well known for their charitable work. The 50+ albums they have produced since 1986 have generated millions of dollars, of which a large portion has been donated to various charities. The Bob and Tom Show sponsors a Bob and Tom monster truck.
In October it has become tradition for Chick to get a prostate exam on the air to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Bob and Tom promote this exam as "Proctober". The on-air exam was missed in 2006 and 2007. Another butt check scheduled for 2008 [3] In August Kenny Tarmac received multiple taser shots for a fund raising event called "Tase the Tar" to raise fund for local police department and to raise the awareness for slower witted criminals of the effects of being tased multiple times. Hundreds of people turned out who contributed thousands of dollars to have the Tar Tased. Bob and Tom have sponsored numerous donations of their CDs and other items to military personnel stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan in conjunction a large sponsor of Bob's Discount Furniture [4] Bob and Tom sponsored, in conjunction with the VFW, a June fireworks fundraiser.

Kenny Tarmac Kenny Tarmac embodies that annoying person on your flight with an over-inflated sense of self-worth who feels the need to demonstrate to everyone how important he is by loudly calling someone just as the plane lands. He always uses airport abbreviations while referring to his locations to further illustrate just how busy and important he is. He always calls Bob & Tom when he lands, and he always gets another call while talking to them. Notable Quotes "Hey shooter!" "We just landed at ATL." "Hang on, I got a call on my other phone." "I know...I know" "I wouldn't snort that..." "Whoa, whoa, WHOA!" "Bitch" "I'd hit that" "Surfs up" "Gyalwang Drukpa" "Like the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" "Bazooka Joe!"
Donnie Baker Baker regularly makes topical calls to the show. He relates anecdotes involving a good friend who had a semi-relevant experience, usually ending in a lewd or scatological punch-line. Most of his calls are punctuated by a tagline like, "I swear to God," or "Look it up..." Sometimes, Donnie is corrected, or told to get off the phone by Randy, his work supervisor, after which he always yells "Shut up Randy!". His calls usually end abruptly, and always by him saying, "...I gotta go.". Notable Quotes " I swear to God..." "They have to, it's a state law" "...look it up." "Hey do you know (random name)?" "NO, IT AIN'T!" "Shut up Randy!" "Shut up Bob!" "Shut up Tom!" "Shut up Donnie!" "Shut yo mouth!" "Gosh Darn it" "Whaaaa?" "What you talk'n about!" "Fried pickles and turnips" "Everybody knows it!" "I had Tommy Johns surgery on both knees!"
