  • Fridays Are About Football, And Other Stuff

    17:22
    With Boomer back from Houston, Craig was in his comfort-zone Friday morning and the Dynamic Duo had plenty to talk about.  After the Booms was through telling us all about filming 'Super Bowl Greatest Commercials 2017', the conversation shifted toward the Knicks, who's latest loss didn't come without controversy.  Then it was on to the Jets, as word came down that Woody Johnson has been named the US Ambassador to the UK and thus, will hand the day-to-day operations of the team over to his younger brother, Christopher.  All of that, and oh yeah, we have the NFC and AFC Championship Games this Sunday.  You know the drill folks, it's a Friday, so start actin' like it.

    19:52
    Thursday Craig had Chris Simms by his side, as the Booms was still doing his thing, and the two of them got things started by talking about the Baseball Hall of Fame, which announced that Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines  and Ivan Rodriguez will gain entry, while the likes of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens will not.  Plenty to talk about on the baseball front, Landon Collins sheds some more light on the infamous Miami boat ride prior to the Giants Wild Card loss to the Packers and Chris Simms tells us what he knows about his father, Phil's actions in the booth with Jim Nantz, a couple of weeks ago on CBS.

With Boomer away, it was NJ Governor Chris Christie's turn to play, which he did along with Craig all morning long.  The guys talked about the fallout from Antonio Brown's Facebook LIVE video, as his head coach was not too thrilled.  Speaking of which, Mr. Christie compared Ben McAdoo to Mike Tomlin and that caused all sorts of heated verbal exchanges.  Additionally, the Christie. and 'The' Eddie Scozzare talked about their football fandom, the Governor discussed his relationship with Donald Trump - aka Mr. President (elect)' and Brandon Marshall gets off his Segway just long enough to call in to clear the air.  All of that and much more make up this installment of radio gold.
  • Moment of the Day (1/18/2017)

    Wednesday's highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day' may have home some thinking of spring, as Craig talked glowingly about 'his' New York Yankees, only to be thwarted by the 'button pusher' that is Eddie Scozzare.

    20:23
    Boomer & Craig spent a good portion of Tuesday's show open discussing the sinking ship, that is the New York Knickerbockers, after they lost an MLK, matinee special to the Hawks.  Despite all the drama playing out the media these days, the guys tried to understand how we have not yet heard from Team President, Phil Jackson - or even GM Steve Mills.  The dysfunction runs deep in this organization, very deep.

    Well, we had quite a Sunday of NFL playoff football, as the Packers and Steelers both advanced to their conference championships and did so in pretty exciting fashion.  Boomer & Craig got things started Monday morning with plenty of reaction to football, as Cowboys fans wake up with a bad taste in their mouths. Knicks fans know all about bad tastes, and following their latest loss, a 116-101 beatdown in Toronto, Carmelo Anthony could be heard answering questions about his future in New York.  And away we go .

  • Fridays Are For Lovers (Of Football) And Much More

    20:23
    Despite getting a win, just the second in their last 11 games, the Knicks (and some of their fans in attendance) still managed to embarrass themselves Thursday night at the Garden by announcing Derrick Rose, as their starting point guard.  So that was discussed as Boomer & Craig got things started.  We also heard about the Chargers move to Los Angels, as well as their new logo.  Then of course it became all about the NFL's Divisional Round of Playoffs, specifically the Packers-Cowboys point spread, which is 'talking' to Craigie.  You know the drill folks, it's a Friday, so start actin' like it.

O'Neill following the passing of true hero, Steven McDonald and much more.
  • Moment of the Day (1/11/2017)

    01:00
    It's the stuff that a highly anticipated 'Moment of Day' is made of.

    After the passing of Steven McDonald, the heroic member of the NYPD who was paralyzed on the job over 30 years ago, Boomer & Craig were honored to take a call from the NYPD Commissioner, James P. O'Neill Wednesday morning, so that he could provide us with a lasting memory of the 59 year-old hero..
  • Jerry Delivers An Update And A Smile

    16:51
    Jerry sure enjoys updating, which is probably part of the reason that he has evolved into the 'update maven' he is today.
  • Good Riddance To Rose

    14:29
    Safe to say that 'the bloom is off the Rose', as Boomer & Craig got Wednesday's radio program started by taking a long, hard look at the ever-evolving Derrick Rose situation, as the Knicks opted to fine their point guard for going AWOL, rather than handing down some sort of suspension.  Needless to say, Craig was not thrilled, while Boomer is unfortunately seeing things play out just about the way he thought they would.
  • Tuesday, January 10th
  • Podcast (1/10/2017)

    01:18:43
    You can listen to — and download — all of the memorable audio from Tuesday’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza in one nice little package for your convenience.  We heard a whole lot on the Derrick Rose saga, after the Knicks point-guard failed to show-up for last night's Pelicans game - the Knicks lost badly by the way.  We also got the latest surrounding the Giants a day after Odell Beckham Jr. & Victor Cruz avoid speaking with the media.  More from the Giants, this time instead of a boat, it's a plane in the middle of the controversy, although this controversy seems to be made up.  Additionally, Clemson beats Alabama to win a National Championship, an in-depth conversation about the Smurfs, Boomer wraps Craig's tightly with gauze, Tom Coughlin is headed back to Jacksonville, Boomer gives Al Dukes a pep talk of sorts, Craig takes a call from a fan and much more.
  • Moment of the Day (1/10/2017)

    Craig is far from a Knicks believer, which was evident during Tuesday's highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day'.
  • Jerry Shows-Up For His Update

    15:22
    Jerry Recco was where he needed to be Tuesday morning and while there went ahead and delivered his latest informative and entertaining sports update.
  • Rose Goes AWOL, Giants May Or May Not Have Trashed A Plane

    20:37
    Well Craig said it right, if you're a fan of either the Knicks or the Giants than you are probably not going to like the content of Tuesday's show open, but as a fan, you'd best give a listen.  The Knicks hosted the Pelicans Monday night and took one on the chin, falling to Anthony Davis and Co. by a score of 110-96.  No real story there, the Knicks do stink.  The story emerging from MSG before, during and after the game, was the whereabouts of Derrick Rose, who failed to show up for the game, thus had the Dynamic Radio Duo, that is Boomer & Carton, talking.  As for the Giants, reports are circulating that they trashed their plane on the flight home from Green Bay, reports which Carl Banks disputes.  Furthermore, the organization believes it's time for Odell Beckham Jr. to grow-up.  And round-n-round we go.
