--Of course, yes, Brian Copeland seems to only talk about race issues, race relations, et al but while I have a host of issues with Copeland (no pun intended) this is actually an area where I like his work and look forward to listening to his reasoning. Hear me out.
Copeland, who has been filling in for Ronn Owens on KGO (while Owens recovers from surgery) has provided listeners a very genuine background on the history of race relations--back in the day, Copeland himself was stopped on the streets of the East Bay by law enforcement for no particular reason. His comedic one-man show, "Not a Genuine Black Man" deals with growing up Black in mostly White San Leandro. It's both a poignant, surreal, funny, and a rather blunt assessment/ characterization of race in America. And definitely worth seeing if Copeland brings it back which I assume he will at some point.
Copeland more than likely will be Owen's eventual replacement on KGO; I don't necessarily agree or disagree with that move but given the other alternatives, I'd much rather it be Copeland, who is a Bay Area native and certainly knows the community well.
*Has it dawned on you the amount of pharmaceutical ads on TV and radio? Would love to see their balance sheets.
*When Giants announcers like Mike Krukow, Duane Kuiper, Dave Flemming and Jon Miller take a break away from their duties, the other broadcasters say "they're on assignment." Isn't that a little too cute? Why not just say that so-and-so is taking a break? Or is that too simple and unpretentious.
