We lost a legend this week. Fez Whatley, one half of the incredible radio duo, Ron & Fez, passed away at the age of 57. The Florida product was known for his love for the Tampa Bay Bucs, his stand-up, and his flamboyant lifestyle. He had a larger-than-life personality, lighting up the room with his impersonations and timeless bits. I'm here to honor Fez with a Top Five list commemorating his finest moments. So please, shut your cake horns and take a look at Mr. Whatley's best radio moments.
Fez Whatley as the Nature Boy: The Florida radio star was known for his incredible Ric Flair impersonation. He made people laugh, strutting around like the limousine-ridin', jet-flyin', kiss-stealin', wheelin'-dealin' son-of-a-gun. Here's his work while he's drunk. WOOOOOOO!
The Standalone Fruit: There are also moments where our beloved Nature Boy impersonator was conflicted with issues in his life. It turned out to be one of the most uncomfortable moments in radio history. Take this clip of him reading about fruits as an example.
The Cake Horn: There was a time where the Tampa Bay product was also on the warpath, taking on all comers with his theories. This was one of the more hilarious moments that ensued from that period, for he got an old saying incorrect.
Dissing the Torpid Sloth: You want more impersonations? You got 'em. Our intrepid hero went on a tangent with impersonations, highlighting people such as Ric Flair, Gilbert Gottfried, and Gregg "Opie" Hughes. You got to love it when impressions like this are pretty close to the real thing, especially when it's about self-plugging.
Midnight Rider: Who else could forget "Midnight Rider?"The saga had a life of its own, making for an amazing bit.
