that they were fired from WNEW. Hard to believe that it's been that long!

I was going to make a Lonely Hearts Club Band reference but just know whoever did was going to get dumped on for being too obvious.

... and they've yet to recover.
Since ratings mean nothing now, they don't care about quality -- which attract listeners that
are no longer needed -- the way they used to.

Bobby Kelly even said, during the "Wheel O' Hate" show, that they were just about there, as far as Stern-level fame goes.
Then they fucked everything up with the St. Patrick's thing.

But, hey -- what do I know?
According to most people here, the show's never been better!

You know, just bullshitting about race/guns/taxes/government EVERY fucking day ....
Taking a fake real, spontaneous black caller & keeping it on the air for
a whole fucking hour whenever race is being talked about ad nauseum.
Empty "celebrity" interviews ....
Caller contributions ....

Great stuff, huh?

So why are you listening?

If I was that disgruntled with a show I would tune out.

Fair question.

I guess out of habit, mostly.
Plus, those increasingly rare moments where Ant & Jimmy go off on tangents of destruction,
somehow, suddenly make it all seem worthwhile ....

I'm gonna throw my hat up into the air now.

I am not a fag!
Sometimes.

Anyway, I often think back to that August day.
I wish it never happened.

It's fashionable to lay the blame at Mecurio's feet, but I don't buy that.
They were this close to having it all.
The show was free-wheeling, Ron & Fez were running a close second and
probably would've ridden O & A's wave to also become a AAA radio show -- and the salaries that go with it.

I wish the overall vibe of the 'NEW era would come back.
And I hope this bus trip thing goes off, too.
With Bobo riding in Ant's bus.
