*Before you slam someone--good, bad, or indifferent, be sure to read what they wrote in its entirety.
*Dear Ronn Owens: Just because I slammed you because I thought you sold out your friends, your business, your listeners, et al, doesn't mean that you still don't do a damn good interview. Too bad you couldn't apply that to past professional deeds and misdeeds.
*KGO Radio people know that I'm on your side, (at least most of you); it's the corporate vermin that I have issues with and that it's OK to ride me. We are allies. Some of us.
*Then there's KNBR: a radio homeland without a people.
*It's not so much Ben Fong-Torres decided to jump ship and play it safe, (like the Chronicle prefers), it's just that he plays it safe while continually writing the press-release material. All well and good, if that's how you want to go out, BFT.
*Speaking of the Chronicle, the doomsday people in the industry are again saying it's only a matter of time before more cutting of the rank and file at 5th and Mission.
*Karel: It's OK for you to call me a drunk--I've heard worse. At least do it to my face. On second thought...
*Karel is the greatest thing since sliced bread. How do I know? He told me.
*Michael Krasny on KQED: Too smart for radio.
*Tom Sinkovitz is not on local TV and if you ask me, that's pretty sad., (More on that in the future).
*Dear Damon Bruce: Like I said, you're good. You move the needle. But you'd be even better if you didn't tell everyone how good you are. Remember if your that good, then there's no need to remind people, they'll eventually get it and you'll look back and understand.
*Greg Papa: It's complicated.
*Ted Robinson: consistent.
*KQED's restaurant show: See Damon Bruce item.
*NBC Bay Area's "Investigative Team:" We see the lavish display, the elaborate commercials during the Olympics yet we still haven't seen any real meat. That's not a rip, just a fact. Uncover something with teeth and screw the relentless plugs, then we'll respond. And that's the only thing that counts.
*KTVU: Nobody seems to be complaining which is good news. And thanks for trusting me.
*On the other hand: hello, KRONvicts.
