Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey are cohosts of The Rick and Bubba Show — a syndicated comedic radio program based in Birmingham, Alabama.

The Rick and Bubba Radio Show[edit]

The Rick and Bubba Show is heard each weekday morning on their flagship station WZZK and on over 50 radio stations in 15 states – mostly in the Southern United States. As of March 2009 The Rick and Bubba Show can be heard on XM Radio channel 158.[1] The show can also be heard during afternoon drive in various radio markets around the United States. The show also airs on weekends on select Stations.

Rick and Bubba call themselves "The Two Sexiest Fat Men Alive." Their jokes about their weight problems were also evidenced in their annual "Big Fat Lotto" cash giveaway contests sponsored by WYSF. They often refer to their Christian faith and beliefs on air and have been regarded as a family-safe alternative to "shock jocks" often associated with morning radio. Their political beliefs are also very conservative.

On Monday February 11, 2008, the broadcast location of the show moved to the Rick and Bubba Broadcast Plaza and Teleport in Vestavia Hills, which houses the studio as well as management offices for the show. The new location allows fans to witness the show from the sidewalk inside Vestavia Hills City Center, as well as the Golden Ticket Seats inside The Red Velvet Lounge.[2]
