KRON's move into the 900 Front building is nearing--it was scheduled to be this weekend but has been pushed back to Dec. 12.
I should know better by now. In May, I said Thanksgiving would be the likely target. Now Christmas is in the mix.
That said, the natives are still chirping enthusiastically about their new home. From the outhouse to the penthouse.
Just imagine when they actually move in.
*The newest pain-in-the-ass commercial on TV, radio-less: The every-five-seconds played EBay, "Are You Ready--Come and Get it" complete jingle and moronic look. You'd think with all that high-tech money they'd have picked a better advertising firm. Whoever conceived of that musical monstrosity should be made to look at a Meg Whitman self-portrait for ten hours in solitary confinement.
*I barely ever listened to the "Radio Rabbi" on KSFO every early Sunday Morning but apparently many of you did--I say did because Rabbi Lapin was 86ed from the KSFO program shelf.
*All you really need to know about KRON News Director, Aaron Pero, is this old item I found. Pero gets some sort of deep pleasure by shouting and yelling at staffers. Still. Maybe he should have to watch Amhed Fareed and Henry Wofford.
*Here's a weather report from me that you all can use without the usual dreck from the weather people: We may or may not have some rain or sprinkles this week, or next week, or the following week. There's a lot of high pressure and some low pressure, OK, see yah later.
*Speaking of weather, Mike Nicco still mispronounces the word, "meteorologist" as "meter-rologist." Mike, it's annoying as hell and you of all people should know. On TV you can get away with it but when you're doing radio, it sounds ridiculous and lazy. C'mon Mike.
*Just watch, in December when we get about three massive storms and the heavens pour --then the "STORM WATCH" appears and Mill Valley gets flooded and the blue jackets appear. Then another one. And another one. I'm not a weatherman but I'm predicting we get above-average rain in December and January --I just ended the drought. Mike Pechner, you owe me a free lunch at John's Grill.
*While I was typing my column, Eli Manning just threw another interception.
*BREAKING NEWS! Allen Martin just parted the Red Sea!
*Of course Gary Radnich is anti-union. Until he needs one for all that overhead.
