What Are You Doing on New Year’s Eve by Ella Fitzgerald

With A Little Help From My Friends by Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band

Mick Foley: Well here’s the last song that I’m gonna play that’s related to the “F” word…”friend”. Ha ha ha. It’s “That’s What Friends Are For” here on…THE MACKER, BANG BANG!

Mike Check: That’s not…! That’s a Ringo Starr song! Why would you play that after you know darn well that I hate that hack of a drummer!

Mick Foley: No, it was a mistake. Honest. I told you that I was supposed…Mike! No!

Mike Check: (*Mike throws Foley’s whole box of CDs at the window not realizing that it was closed and breaks it*) Look what you did there feller! You broke my gawd darn windows again, just like you did years ago!

Foley: But Mike, that was you that just…but I’ll pay for the damage anyway…

Mike Check: Get out of my house!

Foley: Or should I send you a check?

Mike Check: I said, out!

Foley: What about our “bro-mance”?

Mike Check: Out!

Foley (*sadly*): Have a nice day (*Foley picks up his things and walks out*)

Mike Check: I have another “F” word for this…”Fascinating”!

Friends by Whodini

Mick Foley: Don’t worry, I’m not mad at the fact that your daughter smashed one of my CDs yesterday Mike. I wouldn’t let something like that get in the way of our little “bro-mance” here.

Mike Check: What a minute there Rick. Ole Mike is not into that kinda thing, let me tell you.

Mick Foley: No, no, no. I guess, as you say, that you “didn’t understand my particular reference”. No it’s just one of those new-age terms like “B.F.F.”?

Mike Check: I don’t know Rick. I think I’m gonna have to look up those terms in my “Funk and Wagnalls”?

Mick Foley: Uh? Can you say the “F” word on the air?

Mike Check: What? It’s the name of my dictionary there feller?

Mick Foley: Oh. I thought you said…Well, speaking of the dictionary, here’s Whodini with his definition of “Friends”.

Mike Check: Wait. I didn’t know that Houdini had a song? Fascinating.

Mick Foley: No, I said…never mind.

Friends by Dragon Sound

Mick Foley: Hey Mikey. I was going to play us the theme tune to the TV show ‘Friends’ but I seemed to mixed up the CD collection that I brought over. But I do have this obscure song from an 80’s film “Miami Connection” about a rock band who fight a gang of ninja bikers, that you might like?

Mike Check: Whatever feller. This song can’t be any more worse than that film there.

Mike’s Daughter: (*runs into the room and smashes the CD with a sledgehammer*) Aggh! Stop playing that!

Mick Foley: Hey! What are you doing?

Mike Check: Darlin’, Rick here wasn’t playing any songs from that Turtle movie that drove you crazy before Christmas? This is from a different film.

Mike’s Daughter: I know. (*continues to smash CD with a sledgehammer*).

You’re A Friend Of Mine by Clarence Clemons with Jackson Browne

Mick Foley: Hey Mikey. Here’s another song from my box of CDs that I brought along. I used to sing this one in the Karaoke bars back in my wrestling days as a duet with my friend Al Snow.

Mike Check: Really?

Foley: Nah I told a little fib…Al Snow was never my friend. Ha ha ha.

Mike Check: Was that supposed to be a joke there feller? Because I don’t understand that particular reference there Rick?

Foley: Er, yeah, ah. Well here’s something that’s not a fib.

Mike Check: What’s that feller?

Foley: “You’re A Friend Of Mine”! BANG BANG!

Thank You For Being A Friend by Andrew Gold

(*knock at the door*)

Mike Check: Who could that be (*opens door*)

Mick Foley: Hey Mikey, it’s me again Mick Foley and I’m here to co-host your show…

Mike Check: Oh no Rick, you know how much darn trouble your “This Is Your Life” special back in April caused ole Mike there? We had crazy fellers trying to shoot me and gettin’ blown up…all events which you can re-expreience in the archives by the way.

Mick Foley: Ha Ha cheap plug there. You were definitely the originator of that. But anyway don’t worry Mike, I didn’t bring any terrible guests with me. No, this time it’s just you and me. And although since we last saw each other, I have been busy being General manager of Monday Night Raw and filming episodes of my reality show “Holy Foley”, I thought I’d make some time just after my favorite time of year, Christmas, to return…right here on The Mike Check Show, to say “Thank You”…

Mike Check: For what there feller?

Mick Foley: …”For Being A Friend”, and here’s Andrew Gold with The Golden Girls Theme here on…what do you call it again???

Mike Check: THE MACKER!

The Little Drummer Boy / Peace On Earth by Bing Crosby and David Bowie

Mike Check: Merry Christmas there fellers! It seems that someone sent ole Mike another one of these “CD” thingamabobs and left it on my door step?

Mike’s Daughter: No dad! Burn it!

Mike Check (*laughs*): Don’t worry darlin’, it’s not from…well it doesn’t say who it’s from, but it seems that I’m holding a copy of “The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth”. And it’s the correct one too, by Mr. Bing Crosby and David Bowie, not the one that I played last year. So here it is to close…Mike Check’s Christmas Carousal!


(*phone rings*)

Mike Check: Who could that be on Christmas? (*picks up the phone*) Hello KMCR, Mike Check speaking?

Mick Foley: Hey Mikey, it’s me Mick Foley…er…I can’t be too long because I’m spending Christmas with my family but I just wanted to say that I hope you enjoyed that song that I sent you?

Mike Check: That was you! Why thank ya there Rick.

Mick Foley: …It’s “Mick”, but eh, Merry Christmas…oh and see you tomorrow, Bang Bang! (*hangs up phone*)

Mike Check: What? Tomorrow?!? Fascinating.
