Matthew Reed--They come in waves, walking across the parking lot in tennis shoes and jeans, with gloves swinging from their jacket zippers. They arrive in cars with out-of-state license plates and in coach buses with drivers announcing the 4:30 departure time to every third passenger.

"It appears that Kevin and Bean don’t necessarily think too much of their listeners — or at least their listeners’ intelligence.. . .the entire world knows May was far more than traffic. She was indeed an integral part of the program. . . May has been with the show almost since its inception back in 1990. She’s funny, intelligent and a perfect partner for Kevin and Bean."
