We are not sure what we are more amazed by, Hawkeye pulling off a multi-year prank on another radio station (Sportsradio 1310, The Ticket) or the fact that Bob and Dan produced and aired a documentary about the prank.
Over the past few years, Hawkeye as been booking himself as fake guests on Bob and Dan’s show. He even tried to get a fake play by play call past the BaD Radio boys. Bob and Dan’s producer Jake Kemp created the radio documentary “Hawkeye Owns BaD Radio” that lets us peek behind the curtain on this multi year ruse.
