So you claim to be a big fan of the Felger and Mazz show. Well, maybe you should just make sure.
If you’ve listened to the show over the years, you undoubtedly know that Mike Felger, Tony Massarotti and Jim Murray have their share of pet causes, preferred topics and favorite sayings, some of which they have beaten to a pulp.

Or, “That was stoopid. S-T-O-O-P-I-D.”
With that in mind – and without further delay – try your hand at the Felger and Mazz Quiz to see how you fare:
