Breaking: Shake-Up at 95.7 FM All-Sports 'The Game'

Image result for The Game 95.7 Chad Doing, Morning Show tonsil at 95.7FMTheGame , I'm hearing is OUT...along with 10-12 PM host, John  Middlekauff.

Nothing is official yet but a source has told me a shake-down is commencing.

We're making calls.

Middlekauf is missing from The Game's website.

We've already speculated on who might be joining The Game.

In the meantime, we'll be monitoring what's happening next.

  1. Good start. Now fire Haberman and Neal and you're on the right path.

  2. The hell you say. I think I'll get cornrows and kneel during Damon Bruce's show in protest! After that, I'll get ridiculous tattoos because I'm fucked in the head.

    1. Dibs brings every show he's involved down...Brought Damon's show to an almost unlistenable level, and now with Papa. Of course, Lund brought nothing to the party either.

  5. I tell ya- Greg Papa misses John Lund badly. The energy level of the show went way down. Papa joking with John Dickinson? reminds me of the Wood Allen Annie Hall character telling the jokes that made his movie ex Diane Keaton laugh..and the new GF asks dead pan "Is that a joke?" Been there..but enough about me...

    Lund also has taken more shots from Raddy on KNBR since I last reported. I take that as those two don't like each other.
    But..again.You listen to Tolbert and its like he talks and Lund pretends by laughing after a few minutes of silence that he's part of the conversation.
    That whole move was bad and strange for both shows. Of course,now that Papa's humor has returned to Earth, if and when he finds a real partner I'm sure he will stay highest rated show there. As will Tolbert at KNBR.
    How strange all around.

  6. Dan Dibley? He is as annoying as all hell. No way.

    1. Alex Trebek kicked the shit out of Dan when he was on Jeopardy, & Dan hasn't been the same since.

  7. Too bad about Doing; he is quirky and funny.
    Good they got rid of Middlekauf; he's a fraud.Hopefully they will jettison Haberman; another phony.

    Hope they change locks, so Bruce and the execrable Bay Area guy are denied entry.

    I'm a big fan of Lorenzo Neal; he's entertaining and has credibility; the others are just moving their lips.

    1. The on thing entertaining about Lo Neal is listening to him lose battle after battle with the English language. Just because you "played the game" doesn't automatically give you credibility.

      Exhibit A: Aubrey Huff.

  8. Who cares? I am waiting for the NBA season to start. These shows are boring as hell.

  9. Was this part of The Warriors deal??

  10. I guess I don't like anyone that much on The Game except Greg Papa. Middlekauf was good on football. Lorenzo Neal is a little too juvenile at times. I do like the Dos Amigos for fun on the weekends.

  11. If not Dibs, then, bring back John London and Dennis Cruz. Would you believe that during my commute John was the one who first informed me of the 9/11 tragedy by announcing that they have a report of some kind of fire at the World Trade Center. Then, he and Dennis quickly moved on with their raunchy exchange.

  12. In other radio news, the day of reckoning for Cumulus having passed in June, they are frantically trying to buy time for delisting in the NASDAQ national market by proposing a 1 for 8 reverse stock split. The shrinking will multiply the withering company's share value by 8 but reduce shares outstanding to 1/8, in order to avoid this delisting. Weep for the poor shareholders.

      Cumulus is entering the zone where well over 50% of corporations don't survive.

  13. Maybe they just throw in the towel and find something syndicated to run in the morning. It would be cheaper and still be better than the KNBR morning show.

    Please, no JT "The Brick". That would not be wise.

  14. Rich's information is correct by the way.

  15. As the Giant slide continues,Krukow and Kuipers excuse making is getting on my nerves. Blind to Giant bonehead mistakes and EVERY Giant pitch is "on the corner" according to Krukow even though you see on replays,its down the middle of the plate.
    Speaking of Kuiper,the other day on tv They showed old ball boy on 1st base side,old ball girl on 3rd base side and Kuiper says "What a beautiful white couple"...Krukow said nothing.
    Now,did he mean the color or the their name is White?
    Because it sounded to me like Nancy Reagan in 1980 when she saw at an upscale crowd "All the beautiful white faces".

    1. I'm going to start taking a shot of booze each time Krukow bitches about a pitch...actually I better not, I'd be hammered by the end of the game...

  16. wow, wonder what that ''white'' thing was about.can it be found and posted on you tube,lol.didn't even know ''the brick'' was still around! thought maybe people got bored with him.he isn't as booming and enthusiastic as he was when he first started.

  17. I heard the "white couple" comment too, but thought I was audio hallucinating. So it really did happen.

  18. What horrible shake-up are you talking about? Nobody knows the 95.7 GAME lineup as it is. Shakeups have been a constant since this turkey signed on. I can't get excited because Neal Doing Who? isn't on when he was yesterday. Flush them all, for all I care. A's and Warriors and Raiders, oh my! The rest is blah blah blah....

    1. Hard to believe anyone cares bout a station with a 1.1 share. Even Warriors games won't move that needle.

  19. John Middlekauff gave a "marginal" effort

  20. The game needs to get The Guru and Daryl in the morning..they crack me up sometimes. Said that for years. If they are too dark for the conservative execs that dominate sports media? I got a soul-ution. Guru just needs to drop "dude" in for no real reason into the conversation. Boom!..success.
