That $8-10 million you have stashed in the basement will probably allow you to buy KSFO which is very much for sale.
Word is that Cumulus, which from time to time moves a few shekels around their various accounts to pay Paul, is looking for a buyer so it could pay a few Peters.
The last sentence is not a joke. But yes, go ahead and use your imagination.
*The ever-loving, creative gems known as "Armstrong and Getty", Sacramento's gift to mankind and the hot button of corny, right-wing tinged "humor", are looking for more money. Now, the dim-witted duo of dog-dodo ditties quietly have asked the Clear Channel suits for, what one broadcast sage called, a "substantial raise." In the process their various producers and interns have born the brunt of some intense screaming and yelling. "Obscene", offered a back spy of mine who said each day gets worse. Sort of like Armstrong and Getty's material of which most originates from a Carmichael strip mall. Extra note: The duo have an existing contract. Maybe they should get better agents.
*Not too long ago KPIX, the station that has more managers than reporters, hired some Sacramento suit from the KOVR arena. Another one. Worse, this latest torso's impact has been minimal at best. Bruno Cohen, the GM at 855 Battery; the individual the money men back in NY brought in to "make a mark" still remains mysteriously quiet. Maybe the kung-pao chicken at Hunan took its toll.
*Both the Raiders and A's radio contracts are up next year at 95.7 FM The Game--it would appear the A's are comfortable with the station but the Raiders apparently are not. Here's something to think: Could flailing KGO, with 50K watts of power be the future radio Raiders home? Makes sense since the Raiders need a signal and KGO, we'll hell, they could use a pulse.
NOTES: I'm not into torture, really, but I purposely forced myself to listen to the KSFO Morning Show Monday and God, Suss, what the hell you thinkin? The endless sound bits? Fart noises? Sirens? And the Joe Biden/Hillary mess is a mess and NOT FUNNY...KTVU order of business: good that they re-signed Ken Wayne and yes, the early-evening numbers are better--after some serious memos from Atlanta and Cox Media-- to put up or shut up and I'm being nice and clean here...the diva in sales at KNBR made a stink about her first commission check. That alone should tell you why a station that is fronting the other schlubs are running on-air ads in desperate search of AE's. Come to us and SELL and we will make you happy. Yeah, right...If you have a quarter brain and despise traffic, stay clear of Downtown Tuesday --I heard there's a baseball game...KTVU to PIX: You have managers, we have reporters!...
