AllMusic Review by

Scott & Todd, the morning DJs for the adult contemporary station 95.5 WPLJ-FM, may be among the most popular morning DJs in America, but that doesn't mean that they stand out from the pack. After a certain point, the average listener -- the kind who listens to the radio in the morning but doesn't have an allegiance to any particular station -- simply can't tell the difference between wacky morning DJs and their zany sketches, so even if you're not acquainted with Scott & Todd, their prank calls, bad impersonations, smutty sex jokes, borderline racist and homophobic characterizations, and pure idiocy will sound quite familiar. And if you like that style of humor, the unwieldily titled 95.5 WPLJ's Scott & Todd in the Morning Present Scam-Busted!: Comedy Album, Vol. 6 will suit you just fine. The track titles -- including "Callin' Down to Chinatown," "Yogi & Irabooo-boo," "Burn Barney Burn," "No Power at the Palace," "The Round Mound of Pounds," "The Sick Snake," "Brad Pitt's Butt," "Miss Nipper the Stripper," "He's the Marv," "G.I. Jane Boycott," "The Burpee Slurpie" and, of course, the hysterical "Tom Brokaw" -- say it all, and if you chuckled at any of those names, you might as well give this a try, especially since all the proceeds from the album go to charity. That gesture, not the comedy itself, should prove how generous and loving the boys are.
