Inside the mini-drama house of cards disguised as a radio station whose corporate owner hires fake entertainers begins anew-- another chapter to the messy escapade known as the "San Francisco Cluster" and its once-proud and beguiling lead player, a legacy station now struggling just to maintain mere relevance, KGO.
We know bring you another lizard, our latest introduction into the on-going tour de force: We killed Bay Area Radio but are slowly trying to destabilize it.
ACT 1: The evening news has been sent to the infirmary --enter "Drex" --wait a minute: DreX --the capped "X"--very clever thus far. Those Cumulus wonders can spot a genius when they see it. X --maybe he's a Spike Lee agent. --anyway, so "DreX" comes to the KGO microphone tonight, from 7-10 PM. This is not fair, critics will point out, that I rip into the latest experiment to try to get the millennial crowd to listen to AM radio --a show or host I haven't even heard! Holy smokes!
I don't have to listen. I'm a genius in this department. This is another sad part of the book with some very ugly tentacles. To wit: I remind you all that good, old, youthful "DreXie" was a hire by the lovely gruesome-twosome: Randy Bloomquist and Renee Bakos. The love birds that aren't working at the radio station anymore ---I think the passion was too deep. Maybe the heat of adding to the extraordinary cloud chamber was too much to handle; maybe this DreX guy could be the next Cousin Brucie, whoopee! It could be the miracle on Hawthorne Street for all I know.
But I will say nothing. I'll listen. I'll bet the over/under on whistles and bells at 6, (in the first hour) and a lot of congratulating --after all, we know the loyal royal inside the building can't wait. I heard the mattress man is even clamoring to get his ear in--just what who the hell knows. Maybe Ronn will have him on and talk about his favorite gadget.
This should be fun. Remember: Live and Local.
