So tomorrow's your last chance to listen to Braude and Eagan in the morning, at least at 96.9.
Now we're stuck with WRKO as the only outlet where old white guys from Malden can bitch about the lesser races and their EBT cards.
In fact today, you had Michele (one L on Facebook!) McPhee telling someone with a foreign accent that she didn't want to hear what foreigners had to say about what Americans should do. When it came to tax increases, she said she didn't mind a few extra bucks a week coming out of her check each week, as long as it was going to the "right" people. She then said that Kelly Ripa used to host a morning show with "Revis Phillips".
It could be worse, though. Check out the words of wisdom about the gay threat from the new RKO morning drive star, the moronic Jeff Kuhner;
Every major religious faith teaches that homosexual behavior is immoral and unnatural. This is not “hate speech” or “homophobic.” It is the natural moral order. This is why gay “marriage” is wrong and pernicious. It undermines the basic family unit whereby a mother and a father procreate, raise and socialize children. The traditional family is the cornerstone of a functioning, healthy society. Its dissolution leads to countless social pathologies — increased child abuse, higher rates of drug addiction and alcoholism, soaring violence and rampant teenage promiscuity. Redefining marriage is akin to redefining gravity. It is a senseless act of hubris and social engineering that is bound to fail. In the end it is the children who pay the price.
Got that, Eeka? Here's the link to the piece:
Yes, your WRKO,folks!
... After a 5 minute marriage for publicity, Kim Lardassian is now officially knocked up by Kanye Worst.
And they both have more than enough money to raise even a Octomum size brood. More than Drunkeypants McFraud will ever see.
as an old(ish) white guy from Malden, I have to represent ... the only 'lesser race' I bitch about is Medfordites.
I remember when RKO featured Dale Dorman spinning top-40 pop/rock, and I can still hear the voice of my English teacher snarkily dismissing the station as "Dubbya-Ah-Kay-Earache." Plus ca change, as we say down the Squayah.
As much as I agree with (and appreciate) DVD's take on talk radio, it's nice to recall some of RKO's slide from it's height as a local talk radio station in the 1980's (back when Gene Burns broadcast with his own personal copy of the U.S. Constitution on his desk).
Jerry Williams annual sex survey - A week-long series of four-hour program asking female callers about there sex lives, must hear radio for young men everywhere.
Jerry Williams predicting the end of the world as MWRA water rates skyrocketed through the ceiling.
Gene Burns suggesting the the slogan of the BPL be changed from "Free to All" to "Fee to All" after expressing the amazement that his producer could simply learn stuff by regularly calling the BPL reference desk. Despite his aversion to paying taxes for such a key part of his livelihood, Burns did not indicate whether he made personal donations to the BPL.
Tom Leykis (sp) being arrested for domestic battery after the RKO annual Christmas party.
Howie Carr regularly appearing on the Jerry Williams show, along with Barbara Anderson, to help inflict a thousand cuts to 2nd term governor, Micheal Dukakis. (this was back when Carr sounded like he actually cared about what he was talking about).
Over two decades of Fall River GOP operative, Moe Lauzier, telling the same jokes every Saturday morning.
Former GOP congressman, Peter Blute, helping to hold down the morning drive shift after being outed/setup for a mid-day Boston harbor booze cruise complete with Boston Herald photographers lurking along the shore to capture the action. (Former Mass GOP chairman and frequent RKO guest Alexander (Sandy) Tenant was also on that cruise and was later labeled by other GOP folk as an active alcholic.
Convicted felon, former speaker of the house, Tom Fineran assuming the now notorious morning drive slot.
I think that I stopped listening.
Note to all unemployed right-wing, talk show wannabe's. There's always internest radio. I'm told that Jimmy Severino is now collecting a paycheck on Glenn Beck's internet radio ste.
now that TKK is gone and he has nowhere else to go locally. He might actually start mentioning RKO's call letters because I'm sure you can't afford to live in Wellesley with teenage girls off of what he makes at the Herald and whatever he makes off of his shitty books.
How it must burn ole Doughboy to see Mike Barnicle filling in as host on Morning Joe when Scarborough's away. I mean, Barnicle's an old plagiarist who reinvented himself. Howie's just a talentless, bigoted old hack who can't afford to go away and then come back.
Then again, RKO might decide to burn Howie for being a egotistical jerk and run Hannity in his place.

For someone who abhors WRKO, you sure do listen to it a lot. Do your blood pressure a favor and listen to some classical music instead. ;-)
in Missouri. I don't know if you've seen it but make sure to watch the whole thing.
The Jeff Kuhner hate rant made me think of this. I know, I know, it's off topic. Sorry.
And nothing of value was lost.
Omnes una manet nox
I haven't found this information anywhere yet. And will there be new call letters?
Power 96.9 (I'm at a consulting job today, so can't listen and tell you).
OMG, I guess I'll have to stay with WBZ for my talk radio, does this mean Phil Hendrie is gone too?
