Karel must go. First, on Sunday night, he totally screwed things by first-out-of-the-box asking his guest -- talking about book about Osama Bin Laden asking "Why did you write a book about Osama Bin Laden?" A first-rate softball question that Larry King wouldn't have the guts to lob.
Karel heard in his little iPod headphone (IFB) that the guest has been
researching Bin Laden for, oh, about 15 years.
In a spate of "Truthiness"
for the first time, Karel mentioned over and disgustingly over ... "I am a
moron. There, I've said it. I am a moron. I didn't do my
Karel is on an undeserved vacation until Saturday. By then,
he will read this and these comments you add. He is such a freaking
Let's roll tape from Saturday's Karel Show --- "I am going on
vacation and I don't know what to do. I have no money, the mortgage is late
again, I have nothing. I need a boyfriend, bad. Blond, blue eyes, with a beard
... and who, like me, loves to ride motorcyle. Oh, God, I need a boyfriend so
He then started a rant about Tom Cruise and Scientology ... a
topic that carried over with no calls, but high emotion from Karel, on Sunday
The self-made "moron" ran through a list of Scientology members.
He actually said, in a city that loves its jazz music, "Chick Corea. Who's
that?" He then runs through a list that includes Chaka Kahn. Two of the
Presleys. Many more. The bizarro shreeks of disbelief were sickening, as he just
discovered who "famous Scientologists" are ... as he descibed being "couch
jumping crazy people."
What a self-professed "moron."
for calls to buy tickets to the Razz Room show next Sunday ... of which he sadly
announced that only 20 people had bought (that's single tickets, not couples
...) and he begged for 72 couples to fill the place "so I can pay the mortgage
and make the vacation worthwhile."
And what's up with the
dead air and interruptions? Did the engineers leave, too? On the "Crime Show"
on Friday and Saturday nights, the hostess-with-the-non-mostest was playing
"clips" of a pedophile victim that was filled with gaps and dead air. So, what
does she do? She fills in the gaps with "This is KGO, San Francisco ... and I
am ..." then the clip advances to the next bit. Then, more dead air and it's
"KGO in San Francisco and ..." click. She's gone.
Christine Craft must
be laughing in her Jimmy Choos hearing this unadulterated cow plop that is on
the air on the once mighty KayGeeOh my gawd!
Interesting she hasn't
gotten the bullpen phone a ringin' in the last few weeks. What, Jared not pay
the phone bill or are they going to pay phones now at
Ronn ... you must be countin' down the days waiting
for another month or two before you can grab your money bag and Temper-Pedic and
boogie on out of they, as Geraldo and/or Copie moves in.
Karel is a moron. He admits
it. His vacation couldn't be better than to be fired this week, just as Cumulus
does to other "employees." Fire them while they are on "vacation".
... have you noticed, not ONE phone call to Karel on Sunday and very few, if
any, on Saturday?
I know ... it's the phones. Certainly not
Goodbye witchy woman from New York ... and please
take Karel with you.
And Crime Story lady, please learn to do something
good with your life. Crime radio doesn't fit your style.
Mel Baker on news. I look forward to hearing new non-air and supercommuterless
reporters, maybe a few voices brought over for minimum wage from what was Shadow
/ Metro -- or they'd be out of work. Will be an interesting week. Stay classy,
