I'm a genius.
My heart of hearts tells me Christine Craft went after Teddy but in reality she was really going after Michael Savage, just a guess.
Christine frequents here and likes to pick and poke, stir up the masses, only Chris, why go after a small, little innocent poodle like Teddy?
Your barbs are occasionally entertaining and pithy, I'll give you that but seriously, a poodle? Bad teeth? Savage treats Teddy better than some parents treat their kids. If you want to spar, Christine, and I know surely you have a little twinkle in your eye, I'd probably pick a different target, just my opinion, I'm sure you'll chime in and start a new forest fire. Wonder what Savage might say today, this could be interesting.
*The trouble-shooter from Cumulus in town to see what the hell is going on at KGO and KSFO, as I told you last week, happens to be Lew Dickey himself. Enjoy the crab and saltines Louie, Louie.
*Deidra Lieberman, (no relationship), her highness herself, quit only because she was "severely disgusted" about the whole state of affairs --too bad some of her operatives haven't done the same, but hey, like Ronn Owens, they you gotta feed the family.
*Ronnnnn and Copey at the "debate": Gene Burns is vomiting in his grave; Wattenburg is chuckling; Taliaferro just did his 66th Calypso and Mickey Luckoff just ordered his second round of vodka shots.
*Ronnnnnnnn: my gadgets, my ego, my 2-buck tips at the NBR and manicures --what a life!
*THIS JUST IN!: Karel and Ryan Scott are fighting over a bowel of arugula chips.
*If ever an event were worthy of "papering the crowd", mark Sunday, June 8 in San Jose on your calendar.
*The current schlemiel running KGO; ("he's a really nice guy"), is the same guy with one foot out the door --even he knows a Titanic when he sees one.
*I'm wondering, what are they going to debate at the debate? The next person who's about to get screwed at the KGO Inn? How many times Karel can plug his website? How many times he's walked the red carpet? How much brown toilet paper Copey and Ronnnnnnnnnn show the throngs of fans who paid $8.10?
*Someone in PR told me the vast majority of Invasion of the Body Snatchers zombies in the "audience" will largely be interns, their families, members of the sales department--all two of them because seriously, if you actually pay 8 bucks to witness this extravaganza you need serious therapy or an Indian buffet on a bad stomach.
*Bret Burkhart is the emcee: Bret, please tell me they gave you a shitload of money to do this, please.
*Ronn, off the debate for a moment, tell my audience here about your engineer that they got rid of--I hear it was a doozy of a story, almost as good as Deidra Lieberman.
FRIDAY NOTES: Speaking of a bad stomach and Indian buffet, we give you Jan Wahl's Friday movie reviews on KCBS--your all news station which repeats repeats repeats repeats repeats...yeah, I know, TSL bravado, sure, lovely programming...Hey, Christine: they invite a 4th-tier "comedienne" to the debate and ignore you. And you have the chutzpah to defend these cretins? Jesus Chris, Chris have some female genitalia and tell them to stuff it--then again, as I think it out maybe they did you a favor...Tom Tolbert: overrated --thinks way too highly of himself--Tom, your farts smell just as bad as the rest of us...Barbara Simpson is reportedly talking to a lawyer, I'll leave it at that...Hey, Brian SussMAN? Serious question: Have you listened to your show? ...Yes, I have ads, lots of 'em which means a whole helluva lot of people are reading this shit for better or worse. I kind of like to think of it as reasonable therapy --a chance to air it out and vent, as Lowenstein says so frequently, although here, you can vent, exchange notes, and not be filtered and censored like the mattress man...Armstrong and Getty were at a tony Sacramento restaurant after a show and meetings for lunch. Tab: $52 bucks: tip: $5. And the service was pretty good. Add to the resume: shitty radio hosts, shittier tippers ...Sarah and Vinnie were hard at it at Hunan where she once again told him to STFU! Only he prefers to make an ass of himself and start bitching out loud--once again, Vincent, she makes the dough--you simply blow...
SAVAGE: Get this through your stinkin' head, San Francisco: Many of you are jealous, (including Mr. Softie himself, Owens, the biggest phony outside of Karel himself)--Savage tells it like it is and is must-listen radio who occasionally misses. He hasn't paid me a cent to say this: I love listening to him. His rants are borderline genius. He is the only guy on radio that truly moves the needle. I don't give a rats ass about his politics, which if you're a Savagista you know is about 1% of his platform. He's not for everyone, including me at times if you read me enough. Give me entertainment, provide me a listening post that makes me laugh and cringe and I'm there...Savage, in reality, is too good for you, you don't deserve him. Rarely if ever do I pay for things, but I'd pay $8 to listen to Savage ...And before I get excoriated by the Bay Area left, let me tell you this: get your asshole blinders off and give a listen to him one day. Like, listen...get you head out of your ass and take note because a lot of what Savage says is pure and genuine, a far cry from the phony nebulous shit offered by Owens and Krasny. Sincere and compassionate? My ass. No, I'm not "right wing" nor left, and I don't belong to any party --in fact, I'm in no one's corner so I say all this with my heart, not beholden to any one individual, company, --I'm a believer in independent thought and process. If you piss me off and pander, I can see through the bullshit and will call you out, which on occasion I've done with Savage --I'm the one who said day one that I thought the new time slot did him wrong and that he wouldn't make it, probably...I was wrong.
I have heard Savage say things that indeed make me cringe but at least he's honest and open about it and I'll call him out. I don't really know the guy, never broke bread with the guy and therefore he doesn't own me and I don't own him and frankly, I don't want to be close to the guy--he's got a family. I just care about 12-3 PM and his performance, this isn't a "This is your life" episode.
The land of tolerance needs to be tolerant. You don't like the guy, then don't listen ---just like I do when he's over the top, which sometimes is his best performance.
Finally, 'Savage is the only, I repeat, ONLY,local media personality to have gone NATIONAL and succeeded on every platform --He is on the BIGGEST and best radio real estate in the country-- in East Coast PM drive time! His books are always NY Times best-sellers, including his two novels. In fact, his novels are set in San Francisco and have been compared with Jack London in his capture of the bay and streets. Any wonder why the pseudo-intellectual FAILURES hate him?
I rest my case.
