Aside from the guests, the shows features regular call-in guests (actually played by producers Dean Metcalf, Ron Sexton, Steve Salge, and Marty Bender) who'll make jokes about whatever news story the gang happens to be on. Frequent callers include Floyd the Truck-Driver, Jumbo the Elephant, Kenny Tarmac, and Donnie Baker (who has [[BreakoutCharacter soared in popularity]] with his stereotypical white trash persona. [[MemeticMutation I swear to God he has]]). Original pre-recorded skits chronicle the further adventures of these characters, the on-air gang, impersonated celebrities in the news, and such long-suffering souls as Mr. Obvious ([=McGee=]) and his perpetually clueless "long-time listener first-time caller" (Metcalf), in addition to a variety of pop-culture send-ups. A Bob and Tom skit ("How To Prank A Telemarketer", featuring guest Tom Mabe) is the number one most-viewed site of all time on the website {{YTMND}}.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The compilations make great time capsules of a given year's pop culture, sports, and (to a lesser extent) news headlines.

The show broadcasts nationally from 6-10 AM on weekdays, and over 2008-10 the best bits were played on Superstation WGN television at midnight (thanks to the modern miracle of a TV camera in the studio). Since the mid-1980s, there's been a yearly tradition of releasing at least one CD compilation of recent highlights from the show as a fundraising drive for Indianapolis charities.

* LowerClassLout: Donnie Baker fits the redneck subtype of this trope. A typical get-rick-quick scheme of his is a prepaid child support service: illegitimate fathers give a portion of their paycheck to Donnie, who "invests" the money in scratch-off lottery tickets and divvies up whatever winnings there are to the fathers, who can thus pay off their exes.

Added DiffLines:

* SeparatedByACommonLanguage: In "Cooking with the King", Elvis goes to England to try fish and chips and is completely confused by his host Ian St. Ian's speech. Eventually they get into a fight over the chips, which Elvis recognizes as French fries ("And they ain't even Ore-Ida's!").
