For those who never thought it be possible, Mike & The Mad Dog are coming back together for a great cause with the Garden of Dreams.

By Robby Sabo

Yes New Yorkers, it’s now time to officially pinch yourselves. You just listened to about 40 minutes of Mike Francesa and Chris Russo gabbing back and forth this afternoon on a simulcast between each respective show.

Both WFAN and Sirius/XM allowed the two legendary New York City sports personalities to talk in an arranged sports setting for the first time since their breakup back in 2007.

The reason for the get-together carried the purpose of announcing an event. Fortunately though,┬áthis announcement didn’t revolve around an ordinary event, it centered on a legitimate Mike & The Mad Dog reunion show.

On Mar. 30, both Francesa and Russo will host the Mike & The Mad Dog reunion show at Radio City Music Hall with all proceeds going to the Garden of Dreams foundation.

There will be sports dialogue, guests, and even a musical guest. The show will last around two to two-and-a-half hours.

Francesa teased the audience on Monday to buzz about a big announcement forthcoming later in the week. Most speculated it would be Mike’s new simulcast deal to appear back on live TV (possibly with MSG Network). Instead, it turned out to be this.
