The LaVarr Arrington Show (shhhh... with chad dukes)
Posted by: Stepping Razor ()
Date: July 20, 2009 04:56PM

Here we go...
Compelling? On day one, no. This is just Stepping Razor's take tho. Whatcha think Tone? DonkeyTimes? With the demise of TMOMS we have a new show to pick apart. So, how do you like the way the show is being billed? it is THE LAVAR ARRINGTON SHOW!!!(with chad dukes)... I think I heard them come back from break just billing this gig as Lavar, as in solo as in dukes as an afterthought. So the format is dukies interviewing Arrington. It is ONE BIG Arrington one-man circle jerk. How long can they waltz in the Arrington Ballroom. How long can we listen to Arrington wax poetic about Lavar. Chad, do us a favor and challenge the guy once in a while. You are taking this man's word as Gospel, and letting it go as that. Be Chad. This show is bad. Then again it is only day one. I do not think this show's future looks bright.

Jeebus, Come to think of it, how many of you guys can take a 24 hour sports format. Good God, The Mike show or whatever the show is that folloed the junkies interviewed Joe Gibbs, and they actually reran the interview later in the show. Dukes made an appearance around noon, and mentioned that they were going to rerun parts of the interview.
The most compelling bit of info I heard today was the existence of the Erin Andrews peep hole video. Heads up on looking for that though... trojans abound. Sports radio. JFK you have screwed the pooch. Jail-sex style.

I listened to a segment or two coming home today. The show isn't going to set the world on fire, but it was refreshing to hear LaVar diss Dan Snyder. Granted it was in round about kind of way, but it's better than all the dick sucking that goes on everywhere else, since that douchebag owns a bunch of stations to spew his propaganda.

If that show is going to have any success its going be because of Chad. Lavar is a seeming really nice, unfortunately, great radio is seldom made by being nice. I noticed a few times during the show when they were talking call that some of the callers were filibustering. I'm sure chad wanted to hang up on them but Lavar was probably holding Dukes back from hanging up.

I actually thought it was pretty good for a first time out. They need to do more than bash the Redskins, though. I think it has potential to be the best show on WJFK.

The audience that the old format drew? You mean, 20th place? The old format was competing with Pacifica Radio and God Talk. There is nowhere to go but up.

I don't see the format being a huge ratings winner. But sports will have a more natural tie-in for many advertisers, especially those that already support sports teams. I'm sure the format will alienate what few MoM listeners were left. At the same time, it will attract people who would like a good sports station who don't want to listen to Dan Snyder's B.S. over at WTEM.

All I am saying is that the 1/2 hour or so of the show I listened to was not bad. I guess I assumed it would be much worse with LaVar, but he was okay. Yes, Chad is a "sell out," but let's get real. Is the guy supposed to quit his job over this?

If you listen to sports talk programs, this is about par for the format. I think they may actually get better over time. The Junkies, however, continue to be a debacle.

Snyder and the Lerners are on two opposite ends of the spectrum. Snyder spends a ton of money and tries to micro-manage the team while the Lerners don't seem to give a shit and won't spend a dime unless they absolutely have to.

OK -

I don't have much issues with Chad - Lavar is ok, but I just worry that he can't go the distance and do his research everyday to do a compelling show.

Sure, they can bash Synder and etc, but that will even get old.

That is what is great (I think) about The Sports Reporters on 980. Andy and Steve talk about sports naturally, they don't cave into the Redskins Kool-Aid, they diss the team and praise the team, they are fans of the team. Danny Boy def. has NOT censored them.

The gay-ish 106.7 "The Faaaaannn" music gets me everytime. I can only hope they keep getting Novartis as a sponser. I didn't hear it yesterday, thank goodness 980 has some spots still.

Mike Wise should really be worried, he had better be working on this A game. LaVar will be ok for awhile cause Duke's will carry him. Man - when Lavar was doing his Stallone impression it was PAINFUL? Anyone else hear this? LaVar then proceeds to keep shouting during the intro after a commercial break, a huge lovefest about "how good they were doing..." It was odd radio.

Jesus. This show will be easy to bash.

I didn't catch that part with the impressions. I can't imagine they would be any good.

Regarding the segment I heard, I thought Chad had a pretty good retort for the caller who complained about the "sour milk" content of the show. As Chad pointed out, the Redskins haven't been to a Superbowl in nearly two decades, the Wizards can't get past the Cavs in the playoffs and the Nationals are the worst team in sports....not just baseball....sports.

Chad is obviously the best part of the show. LaVar is tolerable and may actually be good with some direction (if he is willing to take it which, with his ego, may not happen).

Did you hear the bit about Mike Vick? Chad def. didn't agree with Lavar - Lavar was all about Mike Vick NOT getting an NFL suspension on top of his jail time already spent.

Lavar wishes he was like Etan Thomas or something, like a poet and deep thinker, when he should just stick to what he knows...which is something about the NFL and big time college ball.

What happens when football season is over? Can he talk about college hoops, etc? I know Chad will be able to host, but LaVar isn't like Doc Walker. Doc at least makes an attempt to get into other sports, its somewhat comical hearing Doc go on and on, but I admit, I enjoy the DC Lottery spokeman...ahahaha.

LaVar, you ain't no Rick Doc Walker yet!!!

Here is my take. I'm going to give it a chance. I'll give these guys a few weeks to start to find their legs. As for the timing of the show, they need to run that awful Junkies repeat during the 2pm to 3pm time slot and move Arrington and Dukes to 3pm to 7pm to cover all of drive-time.

Hey donkeytimes
what the hell are we going to do with out Hailey Wong, Ladonna LaPosta, or kidney shut down woman? I vouldn't vish discontinuing Novartis ads on my vorst enemy. The thought makes me feel it right in my bones, and my fevah is rollercoastering.

This show is horrible. Lavar's impression of Stallone was embarrassing, not even remotely funny. And when he went fishing for the saying, "he who is without sin, cast the first stone" I almost crashed my car laughing too hard. "Um, whoever has not got in trouble, throw the first rock.” Sorry, I didn’t write down the two attempts he made at the quote but it was something along those lines and Chad had to step in to save him. I personally don’t know why Lavar is even allowed on Washington radio. He was Mr. Redskin until he decided to throw a fit about not playing enough or the way he wanted. He called a Washington hero, Joe Gibbs, a coward. Lavar complained yesterday that he was being taken out of plays. Of course he was being taken out of plays, he couldn’t move anymore after the knee injury, he was lucky to even get playing time. His free lancing game only worked with his incredible speed, when he could make up for his mistakes, but his knee injury didn’t allow for that. He has been grinding his ax since before he was cut and he is still doing it today while trying to convince us that he is a huge redskins fan. In my opinion, everything joe gibbs did to him was justified, and the NY Giants verified gibbs decision not to play him by cutting him one year into a multi year deal. I was glad to hear the negative comments about Snyder (because he does suck), but you cant have 20 hours of radio a week on that topic. I’m all for redskin bashing because snyder is running the team into the ground, but I don’t want to hear it from Lavar. The last thing I want to hear is Chad having to interview this "celebrity" everyday about how the redskins destroyed his career. His knee injury destroyed his career and no one wants his sour grapes. Even if they were to change topics and actually cover all sports, Lavar doesn't have the personality or brain power to excite a large audience. The Mike O'Meara show had really dropped off in recent months, but at least they appealed to a large group of people, including women. This show will be cancelled within 3 months.

God, are we the only people who get a kick out of the constant Novartis adverts? Hahaha...when you start writing like Hailey Wong I can't help but laugh out loud. Damn, that shit is funny.

Have you seen the clip on youtube of the Mike O'Meara show dinner party at Peking Gourmet in Falls Church? You can see Buzz in his glory...I bet all he is thinking about is glory holes. Buzz is an odd dude. Has anyone got pics of his swinging wife?

My favorite Lavar quotes from Day 2

"there would not be an ounce of a question,,,,"

"I'm gonna marinate on that"

"I could be ignorant,I dont know"


The only time Chad gets mentioned is when he mentions himself, as in:

"He's clearly a fan of Chad Dukes"

"Chad Dukes, also here"

I wonder what the plan is if Chad calls in sick one day

Just wondering if anyone heard the endless segment about Roethlisberger when Lavar said the woman "alligated" instead of using the right word, alleged. Alligated is a word, but it doesn't mean what Lavar was hoping it meant in his unsuccessful attempt to sound intelligent. Keep trying big guy!

Lavar better hope Danny doesn't buy "The Fannnnnnnnnnn"

Otherwise, its curtains. Its only a matter of time before B Mitch is hired and will be doing "Cottman" radio ads with that mush mash voice of his.

What a trainwreck Lavar is. I feel for Dukes, the show has very little flow after day 2. I am giving it time, but there is no natural banter, and Laver has insight but its just so strange. His love/hate with the SKins is uncomfortable to listen to often.

They have to get into other topics. Perhaps they should have kicked this show off once training camp started - right now its summertime filler and its hurts.

Again, Andy and Steve and 980 understand how to keep topics interesting over the summer.

Well after five minutes of listening I now feel completely overtaken with a feeling of utter despondency.

I pity Dukes. I can only hope in the next few days the feelings of self-loathing and regret will imbue through him until he becomes so upset that he reunites with Oscar and burns down the station. But that will probably never happen.

It's been Day 3 and I hate to say it, but LaVar fucking sucks. I tried to give it a chance. He started out not being as bad as I thought he would be. The problem is all he talks about is Redskins football and it is obvious Chad Dukes is having less and less to contribute. I wanted to give it a chance as not to appear as strictly contrarian, but this show is a flop. A major flop. Worse, can you believe, than MoM? Yep. Much worse. And getting more worse by the day.

This isn't a well seasoned show cast the MOM show was. A reasonable amount of time to give the show a chance is 6 months. In 6 months all the major sports will be in full swing with plenty to talk about.

Someone needs to tell Lavar to stop interupting and or talking over Chad the few minutes he gets to speak. Its really annoying and breaks up the flow.

The only explanation I can come up with for this format change is because the Snyder stations can only broadcast about 100 feet from the tower. CBS must be thinking that during football season more people will tune in to WJFK solely because the listeners will actually be able to hear it in their cars.

I don't think Lavar will have much to offer even during football season. He wasn't in the NFL for very long and didn't play for much of his tenure. His vocabulary is weak and so is his knowledge of sports, even football.

Mike Wise is a drone and his show is almost hypnotizing in it's boringness. I'd be shocked if he makes it 6 months.

I was listening to WJFK yesterday and I must say, it was a very painful experience. I couldn't help but get the impression that every caller was staged.

One guy, I think it was around 2PM, asked a question and the host started in on how it was his "responsibility" to report the news. It was so pathetic.

Favorite Lavar quotes Day 3

"Heres my thing right,,,," X 100 times a show

",,at the same token"

"Maybe we're flaming idiots"

Today it was very obvious Chad is losing enthusiasm for this show

Dana White,a great guest,was completely wasted by Lavar talking nonsense about his strategy for fighting Rampage for the first 3-4 minutes of the interview and then wasting more time towards the end trying to get good seats for UFC101

Chad asked 1 question, and we all know how much Chad loves MMA,,,this was a dream guest for him! And Lavar, like a self obsessed child made the interview all about Lavar

Add to this the ambush style commercial drop ins and a station ID so embarrassing it makes me turn down the volume so no around me hears it,,,
and what we have is an amateurish show that insults the high quality performance
given each and every day by the BOAD show,,,,,

"Holy crapfest Batman!"

Dana White had been on The Big O Dukes numerous time before. To say he was a "dream" guest for Chad is a bit of an overstatment.

The problem is it's all about LaVar talking to "his boys" from the team. That is going to get really fucking old.

I've actually bitched about how WTEM was doing way too much Redskins coverage when Snyder bought the station. WTEM has backed off a bit. WJFK needs to do the same. Having LaVar isn't going to help in that department because that's who he knows and that's what he is comfortable with.

Regarding LaVar's fixation on the Redskins, he needs to follow the example of John Riggins. Even though Riggo's show wasn't the greatest when it was on Triple X, he would talk about things other than the Redskins. He had no problem talking about the Wizards, Caps or Nationals. He also discussed NASCAR and the NCAA. Yes, I realize that the NFL pre-season will start in a few weeks. But LaVar and Dukes have four hours to fill. They can talk about more than the Redskins (hell, the biggest football news right now is Vick, Big Ben and Favre. They can even talk about that!).

Who's a better speaker: Emmitt Smith or Lavar Arrington? I know Dukes must hate having the share the mic with "LA," too. He's a child and he sounds like it. At one point yesterday he was calling Chad a jerk over and over and over again for about 15 seconds. The guy is a train wreck.

Chad is top notch radio talent and he'll be fine in the long run but the only redeeming quality of this show, for me, is laughing at LA's vocabulary impediment.

That segment where Lavar kept calling Dukes a jerk (JERK... JERK... JERK...) was atrocious. Dukes was trying to stir up something interesting by saying that he didn't want his sports to be covered by broads, but Lavar wouldn't let him run with it.

It doesn't make any sense that they created this new "local" sports station just to talk about the Redskins and national sports news. Clearly there isn't enough Redskins content to get them through the day. Aside from that, it's all Vick, Big Ben, and Erin Andrews. Why pay these local guys to talk about the same things that Jim Rome, Cowherd, and everyone else are no doubt covering?

Granted, the only local team playing right now BLOWS, but they barely get an iota of coverage. Why not at least break down the games for 5-10 minutes? Why not talk about the personnel moves the Caps are making?

That's true, but the difference is they don't pretend to be smart, like Lavar does. I don't mind when people who are genuinely stupid seem stupid, but I absolutely hate when stupid people pretend to be intelligent, especially when they continually fail at it.

With four hours of time, they should be able to cover both national and local sports. Part of the problem they have, as has been pointed out, is that this is probably the worst time of the year to launch a sports format because the only things that are going on are baseball (with two sucky teams that are local), NASCAR (which is modestly interesting, but not really relevant locally), and the PGA (which is a wasteland when no major tournament is taking place). The only thing really happening right now that is "newsy" is Vick, Big Ben and Favre.

• implied that Drab is NOT supposed to be talking on air unless invited...

• today's (7/23) show, opened with AC/DC 'Shook it All Night Long', Arrington started to sing, chad sounded mortified, tried his best not to comment. chad seems to be listening to critiques as today he seems to be more inclined to countering Arrington.

Im soo distraught its not even funny. That dana white interview made me soo soo mad. A huge story in MMA broke about 4 hours before dana white came on and chad didnt even get a chance to talk about it because Of levars shilling for tickets and explaining how he can beat rampage jackson.

I mean seriously this format is awful. If I hadn't of heard Dukes before with O, I would think he was just some side kick stroking the professional football player's ego.

The Sport Junkies are fun and interesting because they are sports but wrap in a lot of other shit. I must admit when they get deep in sports and are talking serious sports I tune out. But that works for a good show.

The show that follows is holy shit....awful.

And then we get to the Lavar show... From the stupid song that says the FANNNNNNN to everythign about the shows.... The junkies would have ripped those shows apart making fun of them if they were on another station and I think even those guys know it.... The big O and dukes show would have made fun of those replacement shows and even though I wasn't a huge fan of the Mike O show, it was still entertaining.

Now I am finding it very hard to listen to 1067 the fan...even that sounds cheesy. The station sounds like amateur hour....but it goes on for the whole god dam day.

I am looking forward to the shows failing, I'd like to see them promote the other shows they had as much as they promote the crap on their now.

Regarding the whole FANNNNN thing, that has been played up by ESPN, and especially Mike Greenburg, in recent years. Like the fans aren't represented and ESPN or WJFK has to somehow become a voice for the fan. I have news for the fans out there....nobody fucking cares what you think. Dan Snyder doesn't give a shit about your tailgates. He doesn't give a shit if you don't like how much he charges for a hot dog, beer or shitty seat. Neither do the Lerners. They don't fucking care.

Ted Leonsis may care that he has a winning team. But he isn't going to cut prices for you, either.

No...fans are not even a consideration. You are all dollar signs. That's it. Nobody likes you. Nobody gives a fuck about you.

I read this AM that Loverro is not going to be on the Locker Room with Kevin Sheehan.

T. Loverro is very good on the Sports Reporters as a guest a few times a week. This is only going to hurt Mike Wise more. As many have said, 106.7 the Faaaannnn is amateur hour.

I think if Danny Boy "could" buy JFK, I would so something like this for the day to evening shift:

- Junkies AM 5AM - 10AM
- Doc Walker Show, maybe with Chad Dukes (lockeroom back as it should be) 10AM - Noon
- Sports Fix w/ Loverro and Sheehan (or fire Sheehan and bring in Dukes with Tom) noon to 2pm
- John Thompson show 2pm to 4pm, bring back Al Cokin or something stupid
- Sports Reporters 4pm to 7pm

So I finally found a message board that I could come to to blast this piece of s**t show. I HATED the MoM show, but this is excruciating. LaVarr truly has nothing to say. He stumbles and mumbles through 7 or 8 incoherent sentences to communicate complex things like "Yes" and "No". Like he thinks that since he's on TALK radio he needs to TALK as much as possible, even if it makes no sense. I was stunned the first time I heard the lead in "The LeVarr Arrington Show with chad dukes" . What a slap in the face that is to Chad who has cut his teeth for years in talk radio to be disrespected like that. I even heard a few lead in's that were JUST "The LeVarr Arrington Show!". The sad thing is that Chad is clearly carrying the entire load here as LA has yet to start a conversation. He just responds, in completely uninteresting ways, to Chad's comments. Yesterday's retarded "interview" with Rohan Marely was a joke. All this talk about spiritual cannibas etc... It seemed like LA was just trying to show off that he was friends with this BIG CELEBRITY that no one cares about. How many times did he say "The huge, big monster celebrity Bob Marley..."

Poor Chad and Oscar. I predict that CD will quit before X-mas and hopefully LA will be released too. CD just has to feel disrespected by all this.

The Junkies will not be able to keep 106.7 afloat by themselves.

106.7 will be reformatted again within a year.

Talk about a convoluted discussion. Is Chad that oblivious? Or was he so desperate for something to talk about that he ignored the past 50 years of football history?

What's even more shocking to me is the Junks' collective lack of basic historical or popular culture knowledge.

And these guys are "college graduates"?

Their format pre/post flip is as predictable as O'Meara's "oh, it's 4:57, time for "Power of Three", or whatever...

Man, I bet Chad wanted to fucking walk out of the studio at that moment.


For context, I never heard John Riggins, who is in the Football Hall of Fame and who has a Super Bowl ring," pull that shit with his broadcast guys when he was on Triple X.

So if Arrington can jump into afternoon drive radio, shouldn't Chad be able to start in the Redskins secondary? Arrington may have potential in radio but is the smart thing to make afternoon drive the developmental league of DC sports radio? He needs to listen to more Jim Rome or even Dan Patrick. Sports radio can be great, but who wants to listen to someone get the hang of it? Have a take, get the words out of your mouth and let other people talk.

Lavar is an unmitigated disaster. In addition to massacring the English language, he is completely incapable of expressing a coherent thought. If you are able to unearth some semblance of a point from his inane ramblings, you'll often find him completely contradicting whatever nonsense he spewed in the next sentence. The mumbling and fumbling and fake gaffaws are amateurish and irritating. This can't last.

On that point, a caller yesterday said the USFL was successful until it lost its TV contract in its third season. LaVar then said, "That makes sense. A league like that can only be successful if it doesn't have a TV contract and fans have to pay to go see the games."

So either he didn't understand the point the caller was trying to make, or he was making up shit as he went along, or both.

The big question is who will get sacked first?

Lavar or Mike Wise?

I predict Mike Wise gets the axe first. It might be best for him because now that people hear what a droning borefest he is, he might start losing readers of his articles in the Post.

Lavar should get fired shortly after, causing him to add CBS to his shitlist.

They were talking about "what makes a sport." Does anyone else have the feeling that CBS sends out a list of "bullshit things to fill time" when they switch a station to "The Fan" format? Because that is what it sounds like.

You've really heard that somewhere? Because you haven't heard that from me. I'm not sorry Mike is gone. LaVar might be worse, but going back to O'Meara's shit isn't an option, either. I think the only people you have had on here bitching about O'Meara being gone were the ones who didn't want him gone in the first place.

Week 1 summery

Boring topics,boring guests,boring banter,boring boring boring

I have a suggestion for a GREAT guest,,,,,,,,Oscar Santana!
That would be fantastic

Maybe when Lavar goes on vacation Oscar could guest host or how about,,,,

The Lavar Arrington show with BIG O and DUKES

the truth is Lavar isnt as good as most of the interns were on BIG O and DUKES

Someone should make Lavar listen to podcasts of BOAD to see what a great radio show he is trying to replace,,,,maybe then he would realize Dukes is the main man
NOT HIM

Not impressed so far. No chemistry. Quite the opposite; they come across like they hate each other. Chad and Oscar seemed like old friends on the air who grew up with each other. They were comfortable and could banter about anything, Chad and Lavaar are complete opposites and dont gel.....

Funny. I don't hate LaVar like I hated Mike's show. I guess it is because LaVar is too stupid to understand how bad he is, while Mike should have known better.

I am glad that Chad is at least calling Lavarr on some of what he says, but like Rahrah said they seem to hate each other. Lavarr strikes me as the kind of guy who is more concerned with winning an argument is more important than being correct. I only keep listening because I'm a Chad fan.

Yeah. Chad backhanded LaVar today about "being in radio only seven days. I don't tell you how to tackle. You don't tell me how to do radio."

Chad needs to remember, though, that it is "The LaVar Arrington Show." I'm sure Rob(b) would be happy to be LaVar's toady, if Chad isn't happy.

That was the best moment in the shows brief history.

Im pretty sure Chad wanted to say that by day 2. It needs to be mentioned every day.

The thought of Lavar and Rob(b) doing a show together is hilarious,,,

I'd love to hear Rob(b) tell Lavar all about Hitler,,,,,

"What makes a Nazi,,,,"

I'd rather they rotate Chad into Lavarr's slot and then rotate Oscar into Chad's spot and then let Drab talk.

Chad Dukes, please quit. grab yer Gang and podcast from your apartment. I would pay a buck a day in a second for your show.

Take out a loan, buy a studio and live in it.

You have a great talent, we will wait for it. but if you don't act now you might lose some of the talent you have built around you. well most of them have nothing going on in there lives, but think of Oscar!

Thats a fantastic idea

Another idea might be to only talk about sports for a few minutes a day,like when theres actually a real story

They could call the show,,,,hmmm, I dont know,,,Maybe

BIG O and DUKES

I'd even take Oscar and Chad talking non-stop about Mike Vick and Brett Farve for 4 hours
