PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Popular radio personality Tony Bruno hasn’t worked with Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show since the mid-1990’s. On Wednesday, during the 94WIP Morning Show’s annual day-before-Thanksgiving remote broadcast at the Philadelphia International Airport, Bruno returned.
“I never thought the day would come, it’s been 20 years,” Cataldi said, opening the 7:00am segment. “Ladies and gentleman, joining us here is our first partner, the great Tony Bruno back!
Listen to Tony Bruno on the 94WIP Morning Show:
“First of all, I got to rip Al [Morganti],” Bruno replied. “He just put a ketchup packet in my head sets, thinking that—back in the day we used to do all these stupid tricks, 25 years ago. And he does it again. Luckily the ketchup packet wasn’t open.”
Bruno continued to tell a story where Morganti put six phone books in Bruno’s bag, as he was heading to Dallas years back. Laughter was plentiful as Bruno, Cataldi, Morganti, Rhea Hughes, and Keith Jones continued to make sarcastic jokes off each other.
“How do you have a tan?” Bruno joked with Cataldi.
“I don’t have a tan, I’m Italian!” Cataldi answered.
Two decades later and they never missed a beat.
“Somebody tweeted this morning, that the last time Angelo and I worked, I had hair and Angelo had a colon. That’s how long its been,” Bruno said.
Of course, the main topic of conversation was the massive Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Eagles and Cowboys. Bruno talked about his hatred of the Cowboys.
“You come out of the womb in Philadelphia, the first thing when you get smacked by the doctor, or your mother, or your father, whomever—is you hate the Dallas Cowboys,” Bruno said. “It’s a sports hatred. A lot of good people down there, right? Dallas is a good town. Good people, it’s not about the people of Dallas. It’s about the Cowboys, you hate them.”
