It's Sunday morning and both KNBR 680 and its little sister, 1050 are kaput. As in Dead air. No air. Airless. Maybe God hates Knibber.
There's a perfect metaphor here about dead air and KNBR. Help me out.
I'm just wondering--why couldn't this be happening when Fitz is on? You could then blunt Rudy with the very best weapon. Silence. Dead silence. Like, for example, say Fitzie was in mid-sentence:
"You know, when healthy, Biedrins is one of the best centers in the NBA." And then, boom goes the dynamite. Dead air. Minutes become hours.
Or when Byrnesie follows a Giant's game with his Red Bull in high gear: "Dude!"
Here's an early 2012 Christmas wish: Murph and Mac, dead silence for an entire show. Oh, God and Jesus, I'd even donate to Kars4Kids for that one.
KNBR, THEE Dead Air leader.
(Psst: Hey Dickey brothers: maybe it's a pissed-off engineer. Don't mess with the union.)
UPDATE: KNBR went back on the air at 9: 35, (after more than an hour of dead air with some unintended laughter: A caller from KSFO talking about her plant. Hysterical laughter)
