Show Summary The end of an era, as Adam leaves to embark on the next step of his trek through show business. His radio show may have been good and his podcast is loved by many, but in the opinion of most, it would never be as good as it was when he was here on Loveline.

Adam likens his tenure on Loveline to the career of a quarterback at the helm of a great franchise for 10 years, and just like the Packers still go on without Brett Favre, Loveline will go on without Adam. Just for good measure, he likens Drew's role to that of a scrub defense that practices against the first team offense to get them ready for gameday.

Drew recaps Adam's introduction to show business in the oft-repeated story about Adam showing up to the station to offer his services as a boxing instructor to train Jimmy Kimmel for a boxing bit the morning show was doing.

Adam gives out his cranberry sauce recipe on air for the last time, which actually brings a tear to Producer Ann's eye.

Jeff Probst calls in from the other side of he globe (during filming of Survivor Panama) to offer his well wishes to Adam. Adam does his Survivor dance for Drew in studio.

Dicky Barret, dear dear friend of Adam and founder of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones calls to say his goodbyes. Adam recounts the beginning of their relationship.

John from System of a Down joins the train of celebs calling in to heap praise on Adam. He complains that they kept him on hold for 20 minutes, even though Adam reveals it was actually only 6. Some discussion about Taboo 2, as was inevitable with John calling.

DAG calls in and is an emotional wreck because Adam is leaving. The guys have him do his famous bit of turning names of medications into black children's names.

They replay the famous Holocaust/Phone Sex Operator call from the Tom Arnold episode (8/21/02) and talk about the time Adam was calling David Arquette a nutcase and David actually showed up to the studio because he was listening that night (11/3/99) <--- exactly six years to the night before this episode

Andy Dick on the phone to offer his farewells.

Jimmy Kimmel calls in with an hilarious Germany or Florida and says that he wasn't gonna call but didn't want Andy Dick to be the last person Adam ever talked to on the show.

Drew offers his praise to Adam and it's sincere and touching. Adam does the same and it finally sets in that this is truly the end of an era.

Adam gives his final thanks to familiar names, past and present, and signs off with Mahalo for the last time.

I still remember when Adam announced and then left the show. I'd been listening for around 7 and a half years at that point and knew that it would happen eventually but it was still startling news and I've never had the connection with any podcast or radio show like I did with the Adam and Drew years of Loveline.

Coming back nearly 11 years later it's still sad and fills me with longing at the loss of this show. I don't think there will be a point where I won't listen to these recordings every now and again.

@vagitarian, that's a great story. Thanks!

Stumbled upon this site around 2012 and have been completely mesmerized by it, listening for hours almost every night. After years of listening I finally plucked up the courage (and $$$) to go to therapy and address my issues... best decision of my life!

I finally realized why I was so drawn to this show. Listening made me feel... normal. For once. That other people out there have experienced the same things and very often, even worse. And while they were "wildly effed-up" as Adam would say, they were still alive.

While still a life-time Adam Carolla fan, I do miss the days when he was doing "good" as well as providing entertainment.

And is there a more kind-hearted man in Hollywood than Drew? 30+ years helping strangers over the radio AND patients in his office. I'm going to seriously cry on his last night of Loveline :'(

Thanks to A&D for the show, Jeff/Adam/Giovanni for the site, and to all you guys for keeping the ship afloat!

God listening to that final mahalo is BRUTAL!!!

Appreciate your comments. Over the years, the show has affected a lot of people, including me, the same way.

I've been listening to the Adam-era shows in chronological order since 2010, and just finished with this show tonight. Adam's last show was way more of an emotional experience than I had anticipated. This listening experience has undoubtedly expanded my understanding of human behavior, and crippled me with laughter on countless occasions. Although I didn't listen on the radio when Adam was on (I wasn't even aware that Loveline was a radio show until I moved to CA for college in 2006), I feel like I have developed a strong connection with the show. Much like Adam describes feeling like he already knew Drew when he began the show because he had been listening for years, I feel like I know the duo quite well. By the 2002 shows I found myself calling out "BOGUS!" with the guys, and getting excited at the faint chirp of a smoke detector. And while my abilities will never rival those of the Ace-man, I feel like I have developed a bit of a nose for junior college. Listening to Adam and Drew develop their friendship and professional relationship has been fascinating, and the thought of the two of them whizzing together and talking on the phone every night while driving home is just plain cute.

Thank you to everyone responsible for this site. The recordings have entertained me on long drives, commutes on the train, drowning out warnings from flight attendants about removing/tampering/destroying lavatory smoke detectors and while working the overnight shift at my old construction job.

I plan to go back to 1995 and start the journey over again, and keep some kind of informal journal or tag shows along the way with my favorite moments, but I will probably have to wait a little while before doing so. The emotions are still running too high. I tried to listen to an early show on my commute today and it just felt wrong. Perhaps I'll read a long book or two and then begin the next iteration of my listening experience. There really is no replacement for what this show has been for me over the years. I've had people suggest podcasts or other radio shows for me to try, but no program holds a candle to the Adam years of Loveline.

On the off chance that anyone involved with the show (Anderson, Ann, etc.) ever reads these comments, Thank you.

I grew up listening to the Adam years. As a paramedic, I spent a lot of nights listening to Adam and Drew in Boston. This show got me through many long nights. I'd just like to share what I believe was the greatest call in the history of the show. A girl called and said, "...I was giving my boyfriend a rim job..." at this point, she gets interrupted by someone in the background, and she yells, "...bye nana...". Without missing a beat she gets right back into the story of giving her boyfriend a rim job as Adam and Drew nearly fall off their chairs, stunned at this girl who called the show to get some tips about a rim job while saying goodbye to her grandmother. Adam riffed on this for about five minutes and even Drew went off on it and it was funny the funniest radio I've ever heard. I would love to be able to find that episode, but either way, I wanted to share it. The Adam and Drew years are, IMO, the best radio in the history of the medium.

A nice send-off for Adam.

I think Adam's comment at 1:30:41 defines exactly what was so great about the show. Drew provided left-brain logical analysis and medical knowledge. Adam offered Adam's right-brain out-of-the-box thinking and street sense. Putting them together was magical. The comedy was just a bonus.

I always wanted to hear this show, and it did not disapoint.....and even though it was almost 7 years ago, I still got a little sad.

This site rocks. Thanks to those who are responsible for making this available to all the loveline fans who still haven't found a replacement for Adam & Dr. Drew.

Loveline with Adam and Dr. Drew got me through High School and College. I could always look forward to a real good laugh at the end of a long school day. :)

I almost cried... I'm gonna try to find that bagpipe snare drum song at the end... It was beautiful

The end of great radio :(

Yes, it was the late-1999 "Being John Malkovich" show.
Monday, 12/5/2011 at 1:08 AM EST
i could be wrong but i believe it was the cast of being john malkovich
Sunday, 12/4/2011 at 8:45 PM EST
Oh, they said it's when Spike Jonze was on.
Sunday, 12/4/2011 at 8:44 PM EST
At 1:03 they mention when David Arquette stopped by unexpectedly. When was that?
Friday, 12/2/2011 at 11:43 AM EST
Couldn't agree more with CoughleWrapper... :(
Tuesday, 11/15/2011 at 1:35 PM EST
i listened to this once when it aired live and never again. it's too sad. :(
Wednesday, 8/31/2011 at 4:27 PM EDT
I sort of teared up when Adam told his origin story (hearing about the boxing match, scheming his way into the KROQ building, meeting Jimmy, etc). What if they'd picked some other boxing trainer? Would Adam still be a poor, depressed carpenter to this day?

Sunday, 7/31/2011 at 1:57 AM EDT
ahh man... thank god for the loveline tapes adam will never be gone!!
Saturday, 7/30/2011 at 9:12 PM EDT
A sad moment in my life.
