Mornin' fogheads, feeling any better?
Isn't it just damn sad how a corporate bully can come into an area of this size and just obliterate the local radio scene? And there's more pinching on the way--we've only just begun, as Karen Carpenter used to say.
As I stated, I wasn't much of a KFOG fan. I liked them many years ago when there were no PPM systems and Alex Bennett was in one of his moods. You know, when they actually played decent rock and roll and the music was pure and not the choice of some consultant asshole out of the Midwest who would tell PD's we "need to go into a different direction." The same asshole that would tell Dave Morey that he needed to "pipe up." Screw you---pipe this!
The truth of the matter is that KFOG lost its heart and soul long time ago. Those of you that stayed on the train to listen to the last remnants, congrats, but like most of AM and FM, the party is over. The Cumulus evil bastards continue to eat away the once-great call letters--Bye Bye KGO. KSFO? Well, who really gives a shit--they were gone moons ago. KNBR? Are you kidding me.
KFOG? 10 at 10. Don Pardo. Morey. M Dung. All we need now is a Dennis Erectus KOME reference: "Don't touch that dial--it's got cum on it." Ah, the 80's and 90's. Cumulus free and when KFOG and the old KMEL was too legit--too legit to quit.
Now, we have one last morning show out the door. Bye bye. Another element of Bay Area nostalgia lost in the abyss. They're not done hemorrhaging just yet. The Bungeroth chop machine is once again tuning up for another series of invitees and this is a party you don't want to get invited to.
When does it end? Who knows. They have more juicy little missions in mind just looking to make the next move. And the ones with too many zeros in their paycheck are high on the list. Better deliver, boys and girls, cause even if you have big numbers, (whatever that constitutes as that these day), you're still on the Atlanta radar and these SOB's don't fool around. It's as if they wake up every morning and say, "who we gonna phuck with today?" By and large, they just don't give a damn.
Welcome to the party, fogheads. BYOB. See ya at Grumpy's.
