Armstrong and Getty Play Fake Laugh Tracks on KGO Radio

Image result for monday morning Those incessant, over-played cackles on the intelligence-deficient radio garbage known as the "Armstrong and Getty Show" are in actuality, taped laughs!, (more of a hyena laugh) that ring out what seems like every two minutes, only again, they are taped and thoroughly made-up. It's no wonder that what sounds like one moron laughing up a storm (no matter what and no matter how not-funny) is merely some idiot producer playing a sound cart.

Worse yet, both the morning bozos sound exactly alike which only further makes the fake cackles sound even more embarrassing and awful, courtesy of the Branson, Missouri society of NO COMEDY hacks on their Sacramento tour.

Because KGO management has no creativity; has ZERO knowledge and ZERO respect for local talent; has ZERO moral pulse; they have to rely on these two Sacto NITWITS for "community laughter" --the next generation of crappy terrestrial AM Radio suited better for the SF Zoo.

    Branson just called. They want A&G to stay in Sacramento.

  2. They sound like nothing more than a couple of teenaged boys. It would have been depressing enough for the program to move to SF and make KGO its flagship, but when the station has to pipe in a syndicated hack show from Sacramento, that is a disgrace.

  3. I listen every day but have never heard any canned laughter. One in a while if the host say something funny, you hear the other host laugh or maybe one of the producers laugh but I have never heard anything remotely like a recorded laugh track.

  4. I have never heard any canned laughter as well.
    A&G are okay and not as bad as some report.

  5. A & G's rating are pretty bad I hear, bringing down the whole daily average for KGO. Bring back the news from 6am to 9am and give Ronnnnn his hour back. 1 more hour of Ronnnnnn is still better than 10 seconds of A&G. The guys sound identical, are rarely funny and don't take in callers...just plain bad radio.

  6. I don't get it with shows with all the ridiculous and annoying cackling going on. They think we will find them funny or cool by their obnoxious noise? It's so phony.

  7. Happy New Year!!

    Why do you think the Zoo would like Armstrong and Ghetty?. AT least at the Zoo everything is real!! I wish they would retreat back to from whence they came and take Ethan Bearman's sycophants with them!!

  8. I wonder if KOGO in San Diego is paying them as much as KGO???

    Repeat the above for four hours and you have the A&G show.

  10. Rich: By now should know that A & G fans are like Trump supporters. You can not prove to them that they are dealing with persons who are a few bottles short of a six pack. There is nothing that you can say which will change their opinions.

  11. KGO - talk radio on a Cumulus budget. Ya get what ya pay for.

  12. A fake laugh track "what feels like every 2 minutes?" They're on right now, so I'll give them 10 minutes. That should prove you right.

    Hm. Nope, no taped laughs.

    How about 30 minutes?

    Still no laugh track.

    1 hour of listening?

    Still no taped laughs. Odd.

    So maybe you're thinking of another radio program? Or you travel through time much more quickly than the rest of us...

    Sure, they play clips, but almost every morning radio show does, or has some other "wake up" gimmick.

    A half ounce of effort shows me that A&G have been taken on by additional radio stations and now cover most of the West Coast. So they are popular enough to warrant increasing media representation. And they've been profitable for at least 10 years (I'm sure I could be more accurate, but that would take at least a full ounce of effort).

    So stop using hyperbole to make a poorly-worded point. Here is another example of a poorly-worded point, by the way:

    "Worse yet, both the morning bozos sound exactly alike which only further makes the fake cackles sound even more embarrassing and awful, courtesy of the Branson, Missouri society of NO COMEDY hacks on their Sacramento tour."

    I can find at least three separate ideas in that one sentence. Try some sentence structure, dude!

    I think you're upset at these guys for some reason. Good for you, you've been offended by someone in America. I think that qualifies you as a citizen or something.

    Now, grab your comfort animal and take your opinion to the Internet for validation! Your ignorance will find plenty of company!

    2. You want sentence structure? You're more likely to find a metaphor at the end of this sentence than if you were as lonely as a fortune cookie at a Salinas Denny's.

    3. I did get a fortune cookie once at a Salinas Denny's (a first for me at a Denny's), and it said "Beware of stupid pumpkin head egomaniac trying to destroy the world. Go with her" And I will.

  13. LOVE LOVE LOVE A&G, been listening for years! Their laughter and mine are real! Interesting, informative, and often very funny. Their crew members who often chime in are great too. Thanks for calling attention to A&G....more might listen (give them a week and you'll likely get hooked)!

    1. Another ignorant Con with low standards when it comes to talk radio. They will be pulled from KGO very soon.

  15. They referenced this post this morning, calling rich the bob woodward of radio bloggers.

  16. Don't worry, there's still Alan Colmes. I'm sure he's more to the liking of you folks that don't care for A&G.

    1. Alan Colmes does good radio, a real call-in talk show done well with numerous 'foils' that come onto his show ( Ted Nugent is a regular ) My politics doesn't have much to do whether I like a show or not, it's whether they do good radio, what kind of guests and content. I don't have to agree with someone listening to a radio show if they are smart enough and good enough. It's one reason I like Pat Thurston, I think she does good radio - at times of course.
      Most subjects aren't political anyway.

  20. Larry Krueger made some joke about "hacking" then Radnich -being serious for once- cut him off saying "We don't want to go there"
    Another warning to those who send KNBR angry email.

  21. Really does anyone with intelligence listen?

  22. And Chip Franklin is his own laugh track..

  23. If Cummulus wants to syndicate to save money, why not trade Armstrong and Getty for The Stephanie Miller Show now that Talk 910 has gone to the Spanish language sports graveyard?

    Love her or hate her, she has a track record of bringing ratings.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha. The reason 910 is now Spanish sports is because they replaced Armstrong Getty with Stephanie Miller and ratings plummeted

      Delete
  24. I have listened to Armstrong and Getty for years and cannot recall hearing a laugh track. I think the vehemence directed toward A&G has to do with them not being bat-shit crazy Bay Area liberals. Same with Ethan Bearman. God forbid someone has a different of opinion in the "tolerant" and "diverse" Bay Area.

    1. No, it's just that us Libs can't tolerate haters and racists like you and your savior Trump. So much hate in one person and his followers are just as bad.

      Delete
    2. Nope, they were already in freefall before Stephanie Miller. 910 has been sinking 3 years and A&G were a large part of it. Ratings bad on 910 and very bad on KGO.

  25. They sound exactly alike? What are you talking about? Jack has a much higher-pitched voice than Joe. And a sound cart? What century do you live in?

  26. Canned laughter is seldom played on A&G, and when it is, it's a sarcastic goof, like every canned sound nite they play.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I suspect the "canned laughter" you are referencing are sound clips from Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton laughing. They are not played in an attempt to fool the audience into thinking laughter is deserved. If you don't get the show, fine, don't listen. But ratings speak for themselves as do I; I've been listening for 2 - 4 hours each weekday since 2005. Their show is not only entertaining, but has shaped me politically and ethically as a better person and father. Trust me, Rich, they achieve more through broadcasting than you ever will given your aptness at careless, biased vitriol.

    1. Ratings speak for themselves?..lmao...silly, blind Con. They had horrible ratings on 910, pretty much help sink it (even though a last ditch effort by the Stephanie Miller Show in their slot was too little too late); and they have horrible ratings at KGO, pretty much dragging down Ronnnnn and the others that follow. They DO NOT play well in the bay area. This ain't Sacramento, San Diego or Branson, silly Con.

    2. I like A and G too, but to say the show has shaped u is f-ing pathetic.

  28. I've heard it all: two cow town hacks elevated to deity status. May God really help you sir.

  29. I'm a compulsive listener, and this is just incorrect. They occasionally play the Clinton clip referenced above, but that's the only canned laughter I've heard and it's only played in a Clinton relevant context.

    While the show isn't perfect, it's generally a good listen most days. They're flat out wrong at least 20% of the time, Jack is sometimes not so bright, and Joe is self-satisfied and bombastic, but more often than not they have a thoughtful discussion, and listening to the show is a positive contribution to my day.

    As for ratings, don't know, don't care.

  30. I have never been able to tell the two apart. All I get from their show is that they tend to parrot the knee-jerk Republican du jour memes and play their crappy band music for bumpers. Oh, yeah. One of them has a second family of small kiddies. Gee whiz, I sure don't care to hear about their families. And that producer Vincent? The guy sounds like a sleepy moron whose insights are just as profound as A&G's. Although I have to admit that when he was on, the imbecilic Dominic made me guffaw on occasion with his movie reviews ... In the morning when I switch stations, I punch KGO's just to hear A&G spout their usual trivial blatherings. I think, Uh-huh. Nothing there. And then punch another button because I am tired of KCBS 740 and KQED 88.5 FM Radio's second, third, fourth, etc., loop of the day's news stories. One can only take so much before being forced to punch the classical radio station button. Or worse, KFOG.

  31. Total moron, with a circlejerk of morons defending him. Typical San Fransicko. I've listened to A&G since 1999. They are anything but Republican hacks, instead they favor classical liberalism (as in small government/personal responsibility), often arguing with the progressive republican platforms just as much as the ridiculous nazi-like control of the progressive democrat thought police. I read the comments of the haters and I am not surprised. San Fran think they are intelligent, holier-than-thou sophisticates... where actually they aren't much different than the smelly fornicators that take a squat in Goldengate Park. Funny, also, are the comments on how horrible and failing A&G are... they've been adding stations from several states and growing in leaps and bounds. I don't see any of the liberal talk from San Fran growing.

  32. Because I am stoopid, I don't know where the heck Branson is, but I sure love my Jack and Joe show. I find it amusing that because this dimwit enjoys the show one would assume that I am an ignorant racist, in addition to a Trump supporter. Got to love the free thinking Bay Area liberals who only tolerate opinions that mirror their own.
