Plaguing The Airwaves For 15+ Years!

Ever heard of the Earl Ferrell Fan Club?

If you’ve been listening to Philly sports radio (or practically any talk radio show in the Greater Philly area, including Pinky Kravitz in AC) – you may have heard some hilarious prank calls over the past 15 years invoking the name of an erstwhile former fullback for the then-Phoenix Cardinals.

These guys – deliciously anonymous yet obviously true Philly – have their own MySpace page full of prank calls. They also have some hilarious YouTube videos:

And they even pranked the Old Me (a/k/a Aaron Proctor Classic) once when I was out in Cali:

Their fandom reaches as far as Scotland these days and – while not as prolific as they were before the days of the Internet – the prank calls are still going strong.

Well worth the listen. Earl “The Pearl” would be pleased.
