For a change I want to know about the weather. Why is it so damn hot outside? Periodically, we get lengthy heat waves but we know in short time that the fog is eventually coming. Not so this week as we've been schfitzing for more than a week with 100 degree temps forecast for the weekend. Beats 117 in Vegas and 128, (dear God), in Death Valley.
Paging Mike Pechner.
*Mystery: Where's KCBS' Stan Bunger? He's been gone for the week. Not on vacation.
*Alex Bennett, Bay Area broadcast veteran of the FM terrain and just jettisoned out of Sirius Satellite in NY, begins a 2-hour podcast this Monday from 7-9 AM, PT Here's the link if you'd care to listen.
Bennett was always worth a listen in the 80's and 90's in the Bay Area on the old KMEL and "The Quake--KQAK), even if he had an ego the size of Mt. Rushmore and enough baggage to fill AT&T Park. Bennett was responsible for the comedy revolution in the Bay Area and his broadcasts, notably the "Breakfast with Bennett" was a PR boom for comedy clubs and comedians alike.
But like most mercurial radio hosts, Bennett had several issues with radio bosses and it usually didn't end well.
*Those of you that may have noticed that there was significant less items in the blog this week because simply stated, there was nothing to talk about. The 9-Noon Knibber stiff is such a flat-out buffoon I could write endlessly but I don't want to spoil the party just yet.
*I raised 6 kids and have a family and paid off my first wife therefore I'm royalty. Just shut the hell up. And as for your betting fool--the guy who has the personality of a kumquat, keep kissing and sniffing, suit whore.
*The KRON weather chick at night should stick to predicting the weather and concentrate less on gossip with the bloated one. Maybe she thinks she's suddenly Evelyn Taft. Keep doodling at 1001 Van Ness, yenta.
*Yeah, I watched the KPIX safety program on the Bay Bridge. Can you say softie?
