It was on life support until the final KGO excavation on weekends took place.
I was never a weekend KGO fan; outside of a few talk shows, weekend KGO was a certified dump --a place to store the trash. Hawks came down and ate the morsels.
Gone now, formally, are the once mighty legacy stations devoured by a corporate broadcasting crime syndicate. They are not radio people. They're not even good business people. They killed KGO, KSFO, KFOG--and they really killed KNBR, took out its heart and soul like a shark on blood. Only because KNBR has phenomenally successful sports clients make KNBR survive the funeral because even mighty Knibber is on life support, figuratively speaking.
Bay Area radio is dead too because almost all the talent have either died, retired, or are just hanging around to get their last dance before sunset. Some sell mattresses and gadgets, others play to a growing crowd of imbeciles and act like sheep. They work to get that last paycheck until even they are kicked to the curb and they will be soon.
The rest are like the torsos in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"--they look like real people walking around and living life until you discover they have no emotion and are essentially zombies. The zombies mindset was hijacked by the cloud company who use them in their daily morsel, feast on their innate ability to work, make no trouble, and return to their quarters. No fuss. Resignation.
Sleeeep. Go to sleep. Sleeep.
