TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Gil Gross and Rhooooooda might be worse radio than Chef Ryan Scott and Maureen Langdon. Not kidding.
Yikes! , BOTH of those "teams" are HORRIFIC!
Stop it Rich you're killing me!
I heard Jim Harbaugh today. And if you read my blog yesterday on Colin Kaepernick,then you know Jim in words and tone was right from my article. And- all the writers said that Jim "out of the blue" started talking about CK and the media- my writings also- without prompting.Go ahead read my article. Listen or watch Harbaugh's press conference today about Kap. The Same wording, tone...
Got ya beat. The "new" Karel TV experiment for three weeks on FreeSpeachTV.org. It's called "Karel: Life in Segments". The first show just ran at 6:30 online. It is AWFUL! He even gave credit to Randall Bloomquist of Cumulus, Rene Bakos of KGO and former producer Brian, as well as the idiot who directed the "show" with Karel listen as "Crreator." It was horrible and only lasts for two more 30 minute shows.Karel, you should know that TV puts on 10 pounds to most people. In your case -- it puts on 25. You look awful AND queer. Chuck the mohoawk and you are both - too old and old fashioned. Even had to toss in Bernie War'ds name. You idiot. Just like you on radio - and dying - it's all about you and whether it's cheerleaders, gay midgets or spit flying from your mouth (all were present,) "Life in Segments" will die. Even Amy Goodman doing NPR type pledge announcements can't save save. Awful awful awful. Sure wish you had been fired from KGO during the programming meeting yesterday. Wow. How bad can you be? Just how low can you go?
Stan, Stan, Stan. You are a blowhard and a douchebag. Spare us.
5:57 PM is openly shilling for his own website, and hopes to siphon a couple more of Rich's bloggers. Ballsy, is one way to describe it. Back in Texas, we may call that Cattle Rustling penalty free.
738,750. The words,the tone,the next day after writing my article. When has Jim Harbaugh mentioned Kaps religious devotion before?. The whole feel to me was ..right off my blog from the day before.Not anything LC or the Kawakami kid or Annie ever wrote. Just me.
@7:12 I'm in total agreement with you about how horrible Karel is on the radio and how physically revolting he is doing his rattlesnake sway into the web cam (YUCK!!). But please do not soil the good name of a great and real journalist Amy Goodman by using it in the same sentence with the creep who has a 570 FICO score. Word is he is now relegated to buying his own red carpets at the Salvation Army. Karel always complains about his poverty yet his ass keeps getting fatter. Honey lay off the food and maybe, just maybe you'll fool someone into going out on a date with you.
Self-involved much, Stan? No one knows about your blog. No one. "The words, the tone..." Poor you, thin-skinned idiot.
Its beating a dead horse or in your case,958a dead brain,but so far nobody who read my blog has said that I was wrong....as usual they just WISH I was wrong. The speech could have been out of my blog.As usual Tim Kawakami who wish's he could have done what I did,came back with a predictable attack column. More of the local media staying in the box,in the boxes closet,in the boxes wine cellar and the box's bathroom, too.They can't leave High School behind. Nerds hate jocks.
Not sure what I hate most about Gil....the "by the ways", the constant "aaahhhmmms" or the habit he has of proclaiming everything "interesting". Or Rhodekill....she's pretty horrible too.
Gross and Rhoda are horrible but how about KTVU news at 10 doing yet ANOTHER wedding ring flushed down the toilet story in less than two weeks? The sanitary workers who find the rings in the sewage are entertaining in the triumphant way they describe finding the ring amongst the turd. In another earth shattering story tonight, KTVU exposed how in Pleasanton an inflatable snow man was almost shut down at a Christmas tree lot for not being up to city code. Am I under medication in a hospital? Wake me up when this is over!!!
Karel is a joke. He's so afraid of the man while pretending to fight the man. Little does he know weintraub was a minute away from replacing him. They are both idiots but Karel is far and away worse.
Karel was going to be replaced by the guy they fired? How come that does not make sense to me? Not saying I wouldn't have agreed with that decision because anyone is better than Karel!
Karel is so out of control today! Is he on speed? He's taking calls at light speed. He took a call from a male caller who barely said "hello" and Karel the jackass hijacked the call and said: "you're calling about blah blah blah" and this "is why you're wrong". Why does anyone call this idiot? He's worse than a certain KSCO host who constantly interrupts.
Gil is a fill in who fell into full time because SF radio went to shit at the right time. Not just him but Owens too. No other city would keep these fossils on the radio. But Cumulus is a joke company, extinct within 2 years and CC doesn't care about SF market.I've worked for both in sales and am thankful I've friends who got me into tech sales. Cannot imagine selling that garbage in the Bay. It's irrelevant but I never noticed it while there.
Gil was brought here to take over the open afternoon slot on KGO after Pete Wilson died. He use to fill in for Ronn, and I thought he was quite good, although I always preferred Bill Press as a fill in. After Gil got his own show I didn't like him that much, he often picked subjects I didn't care about, but when he had a good subject he was okay, he could engage the callers, and he took calls, after he was fired and moved to 910, he went down hill fast, now his show is boring (lack of callers) and predictable. I still think Ronn does a decent job, I know a lot of people down like him, and is upset about the way he acted after everyone was fired, I agree that his response was pathetic, but I listen to the radio to be entertained and informed, I don't have to like the host as a person. Some personalities are awful on the air, (Think Sussmann and Levin) that I have a hard time listening, even if they have good subjects.
910 talk hosts do not take calls because they aren't allowed to. John Rothmann didn't get the midday show primarily because he disagreed with the Program Director on this point.
Gil and Rhoda are insufferable. Incredulous how such lousy radio can be broadcasting in a big cosmopolitan market. Rhoda go home and take Gil with you!And Stan go take a short walk off a long pier!
Maybe a long walk off a short pier?
I used to dislike the Gil-Rhoda thing. Now I find it interesting to listen to the woman who married him. And he is very nice to her.
I still listen to Gil most days from 3:00 to maybe 6:00. I think his KGO show was good as he took calls. It went way down hill when he moved to KKSF and now doesn't take calls. Rhoda is OK as at least it is another voice to listen to. There really isn't anything else to listen to at 3:00 is there?
Tom Leykis is on live daily from 3-6pm. He had excellent shows this week about the Ferguson and Staten Island cop cases.
I listened to Leykis when he was on KFI years ago. He was a little to full of himself back then and now he is over the top. Not my style.
Gil is OK. I don't dislike his show, but Rhoda is a train-wreck. She doesn't have a sense of timing, she interrupts their interview guests mid-sentence and we get a lot of those "go-ahead-no-you-go-ahead" moments that are cringe worthy. Nothing that can't be fixed, but there's no indication that she's learning, and Gil is probably afraid to tell her, because, you know, he doesn't want to make wifey cry. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Pat Thurston = Complete idiot. She spends one segment stating her disgust for Grand Theft Auto, a video game where all of the action takes place on a screen. She spends another segment talking about this "assassin game" that Livermore high school students are playing, and she thinks it is real cute and looks like fun. This game is something being done in real life, and while it is simulated, could get someone hurt, unlike the video game. Both are dealing with harming people, simulated or not.This is just one of many examples of Thurston showing outrage on one subject and be all giddy on a similar.
Rhoda is a confirmed idiot. But like Gil, I think that the way she says, "Mr. Sparky" is sexy.
