Behind all successful people are those who get little if any recognition. The Bob and Tom Show has producer Dean Metcalf.
Dean joined the show as an intern in 1988 and never left. In fact as the producer of the show his role is critical. But just what does a producer do? Dean will enlighten us.
He is also the voice behind many of our characters including, Jumbo the elephant, The Pope, and many nameless accents and on the fly call ins.
We learn how the Godzilla bit started, how he is a genius at editing on the fly, the birth of the Deans and more. What does an average morning look like for Dean? What is it like to work with Tom? We also veer away from The Bob and Tom show to talk about his incredible guitar collection.

He is a member of several bands including The Electric Amish, The Tempos, The Turnip Seeds, Area Code 812, and a couple of bluegrass ensembles.
