FTV hit the air in May of 2006 from SteelMar Studios in Bay City,Michigan and quickly took internet listeners by storm. The show startedas just another lowly podcast, but soon rose to prominence due to Martin& Steele's shameless, unapologetic, and self-depricating brand ofhumor and unique comedy stylings. Each episode was chocked full ofin-depth, politically incorrect, & brutally honest conversationsregarding an array of topics such as current events, pop culture,bizarre news, and stories from the hosts' very own personal lives which included: Martin's botched vasectomy and frequent use of a buttplug; and Steele's many encounters with premature ejaculation,erectile dysfunction, and the fact that he can't eat for several hoursafter seeing retarded persons. Moreover, the discussions were alwaysdriven by the charismatic, engaging, and sometimes volatile & highlycombustible personalities of its two hosts. Aside from their usual comical and frank conversations, FTV also createda variety of classic bits such as "Riddle Me an Ailment" wherecontestants were given descriptions of various ailments and then had toguess the particular handicap , and "Name that Has Been" whereparticipants had to guess the identity of a former TV star based on aseries of subtle hints. In addition, the show brought you the satiricalmovie trailer for "My Butt Yearns" which was to be a fake moviebased on Martin's agonizing search for his long lost buttplug andSteele's highly-coveted commentaries, especially the one entitled"Straight Talk with The Gays". Furthermore, the hosts periodicallydid awful celebrity impersonations. Martin regularly impersonated 60Minute's - Andy Rooney, Comic - Kevin Meaney, and TV host - LarryKing. Meanwhile, Steele occasionally impersonated 1970's HollywoodSquare's Cast Member - Paul Lynde, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon,along with many generic stereotypical Orientals and Blacks.
