Mike and the Mad Dog
Tuesday, June 12th
John Madden called into Mike and the Mad Dog’s 10th anniversary show on Nov. 18, 1999, and had some high praise for the WFAN hosts. “Any time I’m in New York … I’m always listening to you guys, and you’re the best,” the broadcaster and former NFL coach said. “I remember when you started, they said, ‘Heck, this will never work.’ And then it worked, and then they said, ‘Oh, yeah, well, heck, it’ll work, it’ll never last.’ And then you go 10 years and you say, ‘Wow, these guys are amazing!’ “There’s just the way you do it and the knowledge, and the passion that you have for sports is just the greatest.”
