Calling people yella?
Who are you, Jack Elam? (obscure reference)
hi chris and perry i guess by now you two are familiar with the situation with the station down the dial. (smilie) you know i listened to steak, cellini and domino from march of 1999 to September of 2003 and the only reason i stopped listening was because i left home depot at the vinnings area for new job in roswell. As a result of my new job here in roswell, my radio could not pick up 790thezone so in September of 2003 i started listening to this station called 680 the fan. i did not want to but my radio would not pick up anything else. not V-103, tom joyner at 104.1 or any rock staions. lol! so i settled in with this station 680 the fan and started a real dislike for the dude name perry. (smile) anyway just wanted to know if you guys are allowed to comment on the situation on the guys down the dial. Okay. take care guys!love ya both.walter
Remind Leo that his Pal Danny Ainge hit a last second shot in the NCAA Basketball Tournament to BEAT Notre Dame when he was playing with BYU!!!! ( It was in the late 60’s or early 70’s) So I guess Leo is not a true Notre Dame fan by loving Danny Ainge.
Keep up the great work,
...Typically, I try NOT to make it a practice to talk about the competition. There are exceptions. However, the basic rule is why draw attention to your adversaries? Now, I'm going to break that rule by writing about it in my blog. First, a little bit of my back story...I got into radio because I saw an opportunity to combine my love of sports, news, pop culture, music and HUMOR. When I was a kid, my British mum used HUMOR as a way to help us cope with the fact that she was a single mom struggling to raise me and my sister. We had nothing, but we laughed. My mom tried to use humor to help disguise the fact that the man she would eventually marry was an alcoholic. We laughed and loved our way through some very difficult times. When I got into radio the idea of using HUMOR to take a listeners mind off of their troubles, really appealed to me and it still does. Life can be hard and throw you some pretty mean curves. If I can make you laugh, smile or be mildly amused at least once on your drive into work then I've done my job...I think it was Steve Martin who said "Comedy Isn't Pretty." Every sense of humor is different. Sick, twisted, depraved, juvenile, sophomoric, crude, mean spirited, self deprecating, blue, highbrow, dry, subtle, dark, morbid. Some of it works. Some of it doesn't. I've probably been guilty of engaging in most of the above. Working in front of a live-mic in an ad-lib situation presents some interesting challenges. The ability to edit as you free associate is one challenge. Like "opinions" that aren't popular, if you can't edit on the fly, you're going to step in it eventually. Offending is an inevitability. You just have to hope that you can rebound from it. It's also a lot easier to push the envelope when you're young and you don't have responsibilities like a family. On that note, I offer my sympathies. As a broadcaster, you never want to see anybody get fired. I've certainly been fired my fair share...and will probably be fired again before I'm pushing up Miss Daisy. That's a joke!
