After becoming the founding members of the group Rotgut, a parody song contest resulted in the brothers Joe Cumia and Anthony Cumia being invited to play on the radio station, and as a result Anthony was invited to form a team of two radio hosts alongside Gregg Opie Hughes. This way, the talk show “Opie and Anthony” (1995 – 2014) began. During the existence of the show, they moved from one radio station to another. “Opie and Anthony started on rock station WAAF located in Boston, Massachusetts from 1995 to 1998. After telling their listeners a joke on April Fools’ Day that the Mayor died in a car accident while transporting a prostitute, the hosts were made redundant. After a few months they signed to WNEW-FM, a New York radio station, and continued their work. The show was cancelled after a simulated sex scene in the entrance hall of St. Patrick’s Cathedral was broadcast to the audience in 2002.
