Neumy says goodbye to WEEI

Bob's Dope

"I thought that call from Terry Francona would be the highlight of our day until I went to bostondirtdogs.com" -- 2.10.05 Dale Arnold of the now (sniff) defunct Dale and Neumy Show (yes, dope is a good thing here Bob, and rhymes with Bob Hope :-)

Thanks for the Show Neumy
Sung to the tune of Bob Hope's "Thanks for the Memory"

Thanks for the show Neumy
It was life "beyond the pale," you sitting next to Dale
Every morning on The View, you’d reminisce of Seattle Slew
How lovely he was!

Thanks for the show Neumy
27 bottles of wine, your stories were so fine
The football pool and tips on Pickle’s over-under line
How lucky it was!


Oh, well, it was swell while it lasted
But you should have stayed you greedy bastard
Like Dale’s last partner, you’ll be blasted
We did have fun and no harm done

And, thanks for the show Neumy
Your thin grasp of OBP, a Bill James wannabe
Without the Sunday baseball show, Drinkwater sits with me
How lovely it was!

And, thanks for the show Neumy
Your sunburns at the shore, wild nights of North End lore
You might have been a headache but you never were a bore
So thank you so much.

Thanks for the show Neumy
You made Frank-from-Gloucester cry, and I just want to die
You’ve got a face for radio, it’s too soon to say goodbye
How quickly it was!

Let’s say goodbye with a highball
Then you get as "high" as a steeple
But we need two intelligent people
No tears, no fuss, Hooray! For us

Thanks for the show Neumy
Jason Wolfe and Julie Kahn will regret it when you’re gone
“It’s not about the money Dale” makes you sound just like Mo Vaughn
How crazy it was!

Thanks for the show Neumy
On mid-day afternoons, talk of gin mills and saloons
Tales of airplane trips and the burning lips of Bo Derek gone too soon
How lovely she was!

So, thanks for the show Neumy
Your bad hair and turtlenecks, we won’t soon forget
And when they’re coming down the stretch, we’re glad we made your bet
How lucky it was!

And, thanks for the show Neumy
We loved that cougar Angie Dickenson, but don’t leave us with Greg Dickerson
And overrated Michael Holley’s always on the freaking run
How awful it was!

Aw'flly glad I heard you, cheerio, and toodle-oo
(Just remember what happened when Caruso left NYPD Blue)

And thank you so much
