The Mike O'Meara Show
Posted by: WashingToneLocian ()
Date: April 15, 2008 11:49AM

Did anyone else catch it yesterday? I was surprised, but it really wasn't very good. Say what you will about Don Geronimo, but the show worked when he would take a cynical slant on things. O'Meara was playing clips of Steven Wright doing Chris Rock material and Chris Rock during Steven Wright material (which, surprisingly, was painfully unfunny) and O'Meara, Rob-a and Buzz were laughing at it like it was the Jack Diamond Morning Show. I sure hope to hell O'Meara doesn't take this approach with the show, because it won't be on very long if he does.

edit by Cary (the admin): After 7+ years in Fairfax General this thread has been moved to the Off-Topic forum. The Mike O'Meara Show has not been broadcast from Fairfax City for many years, and is no longer transmitted by any local radio stations. An influx of out-of-town posters who visit solely for this thread have been polluting other topics.

Everyone is certainly welcome to continue contributing to this thread; it will now simply be housed in the Off-Topic forum.

It doesn't have to be better than D&M, but it shouldn't be as bad as Jack Diamond.

I listened for a little while. It was the opposite of entertainment.

I'm kind of bummed about it, but not surprised. D&M has been uninteresting since the midday fiasco.

I love D&M, but evertime Don was not in the studio, i felt it was lacking something.... It could just be another voice in the show.

I feel Buzz just doesn't know what to say at time.
Rob is absolutely perfect for the background jokes, doesn't work so well when he is on the mic.

Mike is funny, but he needs another person to joke around with, Rob and Buzz don't work so well, but they are key people to the show.

I always thought Mike was a funny guy, but yeah, his impressions are really lame. I haven't listened in years, but I used to hate when he'd do that "Charlie Stewang Stabalack" voice. That was one of the most offensively unfunny bits on the entire show, that stupid voice drove me crazy. Ugh.

Thank God for Sirius.

I've been a fan of Don and Mike since the WAVA days, but I must be honest and say the new show is very annoying. It kind of gives me a headache. Mike is very uncomfortable being the show's leader. And Buzz and Rob don't add much either. And they are adding another voice? Bottom line: this show DOES NOT WORK!

Yes. I agree 100%. Mike's impressions are terrible.

I don't think it is because he can't do voices well. I think he is just going through the motions nowadays. If you listen to the "best of" shows, you can hear how just four or five years ago he really nailed some of the impressions, especially Bob Barker, Regis Philbin and Larry King. Now when he does impressions he sounds like Mike O'Meara with a head cold or sore throat. I say if you aren't going to try to do an impression well, don't bother at all.

I don't think it will make it a year. Not so much because it will be canceled, per se, but I think the powers that be at CBS radio will drop the whole shock-jock format at WJFK. The station's ratings have sucked for a couple of years and you can't tell me that the station makes much money with the bloated payrolls being paid out to the ensemble casts of The Junkies and Mike O'Meara's show. Also, D&M was subsidized somewhat by the syndication deal. I think that went away when Don did.

Thats probably why when I turn to that station and many others, all I hear are commercials.

Two words - atomically horrible.

Wouldn't it have been better just to retire the whole deal and bow out with some sort of dignity?

Let's face it - the show wasn't that good anyway. This entire deal seems ego driven. (someone can't let go) I can't tell you how many times I cringed when they unloaded something really unfunny, i.e. the employee of the month game. It's not even close. Don's whole deal was making the stupid games funny by adding the cynicism and relating it to the stupidity of the radio business.

The only logical explanation I can present is that maybe the station got caught in a bind with Don leaving so abruptly and had to fill the time until they dump the format.

Bottom line - too much Buzz (he's boring), Rob is only good being off the mike - and Beth Ann McBride? Please - what the hell is she coming back for. The only reason she was funny before was because she and Mike had that fake tension that Don "mediated."

6 months - tops.

That was truly awful. I kept waiting for someone to slice and dice the callers apart ala Don Geronimo and all Mike, Buzz and Robb did was applaud them for their stupid stories. And then they didn't even let the best one compete (the apartment manager who spent his entire day watching movies and playing poker online). What's up with that??

They also didn't vet the callers very well. The guy who won, the mechanic, sounded like a fake set-up to me, especially when the boss was yelling at him on the phone. Where the hell was Mike's B.S. detector on that one? I guess Don took it with him when he retired.

I don't know what the payroll is for that show, but I think JFK is paying too much. If they end up pulling Glenn Beck numbers, I imagine they will be gone sooner rather than later.

And dissing his girlfriend is just stupid. There's no reason for it.

Plus, can Mike run down the old show much more? It only paid his fat ass for 20+ years. I give it six months. Buzz is good, but when he does the news now it's like reading from a newspaper. Oh gotta go. Is it 'argument wednesday' or 'do you care tuesday'? lame-o

No, he's not. I'm not going to "diss" on the man's personal life at all. I just think he is not particularly funny. As a matter of fact, that "Charlie" voice is stupidest damn thing I've ever heard in my life. Whenever I hear that I switch stations so fast it'll make your head spin. Buzz puts me to sleep when he talks. Rob is just a douche.

I have been listening to the d&m show for years. I think that Don was getting tired and Mike was ready for his own show, however, I think Mike needs some new "schtick". A new format might bode well for all of them, especially the stoned one. It's got to be tough to entertain for 4 hours everyday when the main cog in the machine just up and left. Give it time......

It really does sound like the Jack Diamond Morning Show. You have all the trademarks. The fake group laughs. Playing clips from outside sources that are supposed to be funny but aren't. Mike setting up a scenario and then asking callers to call in and give their own experiences (ever get the wrong order at a fast food drive-through? What was your worst experience?). And reading bits from those stupid joke services Don used to lambaste. I mean, did Mike not learn anything over the past 25 years???

This show can be salvaged only if Mike NEVER be serious. Use his funny impressions. For example they need to schedule interviews then tell the interviewee that they have a surprise gust like Jack Nicolson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, The guy in rich and famous TV program Robin Leech and all the other famous people that Mike does a good job making fun. This can be good.

Another point Rob Spewak needs to really shut up and stop laughing like a bum looser. Hay man you can’t full people with your fake laughter. I really hate it when he does that.

The way it’s going with no drastic changes I’ll give it a few months only before it crashes.

Forget the fact the show has no edge or geniune laughs, but to hear him talk up the virtues of the Junkys or the two Junky want to be's that are on before him is just sad.

O'Meara's restaurant is officially closed....

DCRTV hears that WJFK-FM afternoon man Mike O'Meara's Manassas eatery is now closed. O'Meara's Irish Pub had been open only on weekends since mid-March. The slumping economy, Virginia's stringent booze regulations, and the demands of launching his new JFK show, since the recent retirement of partner Don Geronimo, have all contributed to the demise of the restaurant, we're told.


...So let me get this straight. Giving booze to someone after hours and keeping ABC agents out of your place of business constitute "stringent booze regulations?" WTF???

I think that Mike needs to get out from under Spewak, take Buzz and start fresh. Fresh show, fresh concept, etc. (if that is possible). Continuin on in this format will only result in him being endlessly (and rightfully) slammed for riding on the coattails of the D&M show (which has sucked since the days of the nekkid olympics)...

So the Washington Post finally reported that O'Meara's pub is out of business...


"O'Meara's Goes Dark for Good in Manassas

It's one of those celebrity rites of passage: Get famous, then become a partner in a cool restaurant and hang out with fans. But it doesn't always work out: Ask Mike O'Meara.

WJFK-FM's afternoon talker just shuttered O'Meara's, his Irish pub in Manassas."


I hope the Washington Post prints a retraction. O'Meara's Pub was never "a cool restaurant." It was a so-so sports bar that featured an eating area with the decor of some old lady's sitting room and food that tasted like it was sitting under that old lady's coach for about a week.

I was a listner/fan of the D&M show for many years. The ensemble of personalities seemed to fit nicely but DON did carry the show. There we bits I couldnt stand (ie. anything with Charlie, low budget jeopardy, anything with the angry mailman, when they were spending lot's of time with the King of Queens chick). Now that I think about it, maybe I didnt really like but it was only talk show on the radio at the drive home. Mike WAS always uncomfortable when Don was off for some reason (I never figured out why they didnt just play "best of"). The new show, even with the support of Buzz and Rob and BA doesnt really offer up much. They just seem to have drank the CBS Kool-Aid and are being politically correct, are no longer "shock jocks", and seem to just kiss the butt of everyone else featured on the other radio programs at JFK. Does anyone really care when Rob is featured on the Junkies? Or Cakes is on the Big O and Dukes Show? Or Big O is on the Mike O'meara show. They just seem to be overzealous in proving to the world (albeit at CBS's direction) that they can all get along post "Don" era. It all seems pre-fab and they are assuming we are all just a bunch of dopes.

I really wanted the Mike O'meara show to work as there is nothing else to listen to. As cheap as I am, I am seriously considering investing in satellite radio.....

I listened a bit yesterday. They kept dumping Mike for saying "fluffer." WTF??? That's not obscene!! (even when you know the context, which I imagine a lot of people don't).

This is what Don was railing against. You try to play by the rules and they start dumping you for ridiculous shit. There were so many dump-outs it totally ruined the segment (not that it was that great to begin with). CBS isn't doing itself any favors by acting like pussies.

I've noticed the deal with them doing hour-long interviews with people nobody cares about. Do they really have no content? Hell, it would be more entertaining if they just did open phones.

I dont think he banked his paychecks as Don did.... and Im willing to bet he took a pay cut for this gig. Hence, between alimony, child support, the new girlfriend, the failing restaurant, etc. he's having a tough time financially.

Everyone has to remember that during the good 'ol days, all he had to do was play second fiddle, show up to work 5 minutes before air time, and basically ad lib his way through the show. Now he has to plan, direct, produce and carry the weight of the show (nothing he's had to do before). It IS CLEAR that they have no vision for the show and just seem to take it day by day by filling up air time with any nonsense they can think of. Kind of reminds me of Peter Rosenberg and all the other failed shows/personalities of WJFK.

Peter Rosenberg...Ha! I miss the days of that dumbass spending an hour telling everyone how cool his girlfriend was. What a lousy on-air personality. Wonder how that gig as a DJ at McDonald's panned out?

What really got to me is the constant focus on Beth Ann McBride. She is not funny and should never be featured on the show. And the obsession with her boobs and past are not only boring, but uninspired. The comments about Mike seeming uncomfortable are spot on. Tom Gavine would be funnier than the current lineup. I am so sad that this format is not working. I truly can not listen any longer. The only portion I still enjoy is Buzz' news hour.

Ugh, I can't stand that bethann McBride. She is totally bland and says nothing of interest. Her voice is even a bore. I heard her doing a voice over for some Mother's Day ad today and I turned it off!!!

Personally, I think Mike needs to go to rehab or something. he drinks too much and he looks so unhealthy. I am sick of him bragging about his girlfriend Karla too. I wonder if she is cute or ugly? He never talks about his kids anymore just his dog or Karla's dog.

I really do like Buzz but they keep interrupting him all the time. Rob is semi-funny. And that pregnant mother game was just ridiculous.
Give me the old days with Homo Joe, Dennis Murphy and Sherry Likker.

There's no loyalty to the show that fed Mike o's fat ass for 20 years, cause he's NICE MIKE, without EVIL DON. Summary: as others have mentioned, this is a Jack Diamond offend no-one show.

So apparently O'Meara got hit with $26K in fines. Instead of paying them, he surrendered his liquor license and shut down his restaurant...

http://www.insidenova.com/isn/news/local/article/omearas_racked_up_thousands_in_abc_fines/15321/

I love how O'Meara blamed Virginia's stringent liquor laws. You mean, like running "Happy Hour" between 9pm and 2am? Or giving away liquor as gifts at a bar? Or not cutting off people who were obviously drunk? Or goading people into buying drinks when they didn't want to? Or, my all-time favorite, keeping ABC agents out of your place of business?

Great way to keep a liquor license.

Actually , she is cute but kind of dumb in good hearted way, unfortunately her Mom's a prostitute, her brother is in jail and she basically comes from a white trash broken home. I'd have to say Mike sort of saved her from her own miserable existence.

That's not sick that's perfectly normal. If he's 50 and she's 29 there's no problem at all, if she were 15 and he were 36, that would be different and illegal. Besides after her career as a stripper at the Crystal City Restaurant, I'm sure she is no inexperienced, goody 2 shoe virgin anyway but I still have no doubt she wouldn't be with him if he weren't rich.

And have you noticed that he's now kind of talking with a fake upbeat "Jack Diamondesque" voice (Rob too). They've also added some re-verb or something....

The show gets more un-listenable by the day. They are clearly just trying to go day by day by lamely filling up air time with nonsense. The show has no vision. At least there's a beat or rhythm with the Junkies and Big O and Dukes. Mike's show is flat. Don must be vomiting on his pool deck in Great Falls. I guarantee you when it looks as though the show is going to tank for good, Don makes some type of return (as a guest host, as frequent call-in guest, or something).

And what's with all these fat/ugly pseudo-celebs who score these hot chicks as girlfriends/wives (ie. Mike, Larry King, etc). I understand that these guys would never get these women if they were "regular" dudes, but what kind of woman would lower herself to this? You dont see many good looking young men latching on to rich/famous old bats....

Anyways. I think it's time to bring back G Gordon Liddy or the Greaseman....

I switched over for just a few minutes yesterday before going back to The Globe (which has its own issues but is infinitely better than WJFK). I noticed during the commercial break that about 50-percent of the spots were promos and PSAs. Not a good sign. Also, I heard Rob's horrific Tahiti Village spot with Roseanne Barr. The guy has spent years honing an image of a sarcastic ass and then he yucks it up on a pre-taped, canned bit with Barr like he is Dick Clark. It really sounded terrible.

Yeah. Mike had Tony Perkins, the weather guy, on. Like who the hell wants to hear what Tony Perkins has to say outside of a Five Day Forecast?

I don't get it either, especially since I don't think Mike is rich. I would be surprised if he makes six figures. Radio pays shit unless you are the owner or producer of your own show (Don Geronimo, Howard Stern). Given the fact Don had to negotiate the deal for Mike with WJFK, I imagine Mike is incapable of not getting himself hosed (see O'Meara's Restaurant and Pub).

I've never figured out who gets paid how much in radio. I do know that Don Geranimo is a multi-millionaire as evidenced by his huge spread in Great Falls and his OC beach house. I know "Cakes" from the Junkies does ok as he lives in a $600k house in Olney and his wife doesnt work. I have to think that in the Don and Mike heyday, Mike was probably making between $500k and a million dollars a year. He had a big house in Haymarket (now lives in Manassas) and was able to pony up bucks to buy the Manassas restaurant (and put in a bid for Sign of the Whale). Im guessing he makes considerably less now (probably on some type of temporary/contingency contract, awaiting to see how the show does over the first few months before CBS commits to signing a longer-term contract). I think the initial ratings (listenership) of the show were ok because it was a new show and had all the D&M hanger-ons/loyals. I think now that the show is no longer a novelty and is clearly sucky , the ratings are dipping and CBS is scrambling to figure out what to do.....

I find it incredibly hard to believe that Mike ever made $500K+. My understanding is that a station in this market that books $10 million in gross revenue a year is doing pretty well. Once you take out operating, salary, obligations to Clear Channel, etc, I can't imagine WJFK would give big payrolls to anyone outside of Don, who really owned the show.

As for who buys what, it doesn't take that much money to start a restaurant. People who make far less than $500K do it all of the time. And for Cakes, plenty of people in the $90K to $120K range live in $600K houses. That is pretty much the norm for this area.

You shouldn't mistake debt for income. My understanding is that Elliott in the Morning makes about $140K.

He really is phoning it in, isn't he? So are the other guys.

I get the impression Don was a real prick to work for/with. But I think he kept these guys in line and on task. Mike is letting everyone do what they want to do and the result speaks for itself - a shitty show that is getting less and less tolerable by the day.

Amazing!
This must be one of the sites Don used to talk about where everybody just whales on D&M and now M for the hell of it.
The show was forced lacking structure for sure in the beginning but has improved steadily. If you care to listen you can see it is starting to develop a style and structure all its own.
Here are some points you seem to be missing:
Don left two fricken weeks early "kind of threw Mike under the bus don't ya think?". Unlike most new shows that grow organically, Mike's show was expected to burst fully formed from it shell. I say he has one hell of a set of Balls if you ask me for even trying to do this. Westwood one - what about it - what do they have to lose - just 26 syndicated stations already in the stable. CBS - owes no one anything, if they didn't think he deserved a chance they would have told him to kiss off! Attacking his private life cheap at best. Like to see how any of you would stand up under such scrutany. As for wise business decisions only those who never take chances would be so harsh and everyone knows that those who don't take chances are the sheep of the world. My prediction - 6 months if left to their own devices and with some coaching and support Mike and crew will have a tight ship that all but the biggest of haters will appreciate.

To the contrary, the show has actually gotten WORSE over the weeks. The first week or so O'Meara actually had planned bits. Now he is putting Tony Perkins and phone psychics on there for hours at a time. This tells me he either doesn't know what he is doing or doesn't care. Odds are, if he has a contract, he would be just as happy if they canceled his show and wrote him a check.

I was spinning through the dial this morning and Jack Diamond came on the radio and started rambling about how it is a harsh world and so many people are going through tough times, what with rising gas prices and all.

Then, he and his crew of morons proceeded to break down the results show of American Idol. I'm sitting there listening to that fat, greasy bag of **** drone on about American Idol and all I can say is "Shut. The. F***. Up." over and over and over and over. Like, nobody below the age of 45 thinks you're an authority on anything.

And the icing on the cake was when Mix 107.3 played "It's Been a While" by Staind (for the 1,309,985th time since that song came out) and Diamond said that the band just "rocks out" on that song. "Rocks out"? Really?

I guess that's how they get listeners--turn them into mindless drones that don't mind hearing the same Los Lonely Boys song seven times an hour.

The only person who doesnt really fit in is Beth Anne. ALthpough Mike is not nearly as good a story teller as Don was. He isnt gonna open up about his private life the way don would so its a differant show than the D&M show. Less talk about American Idol thats all I would say. I cannot stand AI.

I stopped by the WJFK parking lot on Friday for the big O'Meara Show Hogfest. (Ok, to see the Hooters and Biker babes.)

My first disappointment was the Hooters girls were suppose to be there, seems they had better things to do because they didn't show up.

Was the parking lot packed like like Mike and Rob said? You can be the judge. I counted about 25 bikes and about 50 people. I'm guessing that most of people worked in the surrounding buildings or walked over from the nearby apartment complex because they heard a band.

A lot of people showed up for five minutes and then took off.

FYI - I met Beth Ann. Cute face but could lose about 100 pounds. She would probably still be fun in bed.

Here are some pictures.

1) This first picture is of the entire parking lot Hogfest crowd, about 40 people. Yes, you are seeing the ENTIRE Hogfest parking lot. That's Mike O'Meara(top middle) in all black standing in the middle of "the crowd" holding a mic. (to left of the guy in the white t-shirt)

2) The second picture is of Mike O'Mearo just after he got off his bike when he rode in. This is the part where he said "I'm riding into a huge crowd and their going wild." People barely noticed he had just pulled in.

From left to right: Rob is in the green hawaiian shirt with the head phones,(big dude who could probably be a body guard, O'Meara is the guy in the black shirt with his back to me, Buzz Burbank is on the right hold a mic. The red motorcycle to the right of them is Mike's hog.

That's pretty pathetic. How hard is it to get the damn Hooters girls? Isn't this the kind of shit they do for promotion all of the time? Isn't there a Hooters right there as well?

This shouldn't be surprising. Who drives a Hog and would have time for something like this? A 50-plus-year-old guy. What is the demographic for WJFK? 18-40? The guys who would come to this listen to WMAL, WTOP or NPR.

In all fairness, whenever Don and Mike had an event at the station outside and invited their fans, usually only about 40 showed up. I live near there and have been to plenty of events over the years and there was never a huge crowd. I even met Cheryl the big dyke!(RIP) On the radio you hear cars honking and people yelling but that is the passing traffic and also kids leaving the Catholic HS in cars so you think there is a huge crowd if you are listening.

I would never have guessed BA as overweight. Why would someone so obese even spend money on implants??? Is that an exaggeration on your part.
Thanks for the pictures. I really like Buzz and I always liked to stop by to see him. By the way, if you want a great massage, right across the street is Fairfax Massage. I've been going there for years. Oh and for facials, I go to Fairfax Skin Care in the same complex.
I hope Mike can fine tune his show. Right now it is boring.

The thing that truly amazes me about Mike is that he used to be funny, sarcastic, anti-radio management, anti-establishment, rude, crass, "i dont give a damn" type. He bragged that he never prepared for the D&M show and would show up to work 5 minutes before air time. Now he sounds as though he's playing for a Frank Sinatra/Judy Garland fan base. It's like Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde. None of the bits work. It is soooooo forced. Im not even sure what their target audience is anymore. It certainly is not males 18-50.

Mike doesn't care. That's the difference between O'Meara and Don. Don cared. Mike doesn't. Just give him his check and he'll do Jack Diamond's shtick until he is forced off the air.

There is almost nothing else to listen to. Big O and Dukes are quite funny. Unlike when they were on WHFS. I live in Baltimore and now I have to listen to Ed Norris... My job wont let us stream so all i get are some podcasts. I really miss Don.

I think the radio execs have their talons in the show right now. That may be why Mike seems so uncomfortable and ass kissy. The show will likely never be what it was, but I grew up loving the format.

I happen to think the Mike Omeara show is better than the Don and Mike show. The only complaint I have is Robb. He needs to go..I will agree with that. He comes across simply as a sidekick who does everything he can to get a laugh and suck up to Mike. His voice is hideous as well..

I haven't listened to the show in about two weeks. I have flipped over once or twice for about a minute or two before switching back to The Globe or some other station.

Two or three years ago, I was a WJFK listener. I would listen to Howard Stern in the morning, Don and Mike in the evenings and, if I left work late, Ron and Fez.

Not anymore. I can barely tolerate The Junkies. I would listen to them occasionally in the morning because I would have the radio on WJFK from the evening before when I listened to Don & Mike. But now that I don't listen to Mike O'Meara, I don't listen to The Junkies, either.

I think WJFK has been a sinking ship for years. No station can provide payroll to so many live, local, ensemble-cast shows and float around 15th in the ratings. It would be different if WJFK was still in the top 5 stations, but it's not. It must be hemorrhaging money.

Eventually management is going to have to make cuts. O'Meara's show, even with the cost savings of not having Don on it, must be one of the more expensive shows to run. It doesn't help that half of the "spots" on the show are promos, PSAs and "Per Inquiry" spots that pay crap. Sooner or later, Mike is going to be gone.

To respond to Chad: The frustration lies with the fact that most of us loved the Don and Mike Show (primarily pre-Janet Jackson incident). The frustration results from the fact that for the past two or three years, the show became less entertaining; though it was still listenable with Don. Even when the D&M show was around, I thought the show came to a halt when Mike would sub when Don was out sick or on leave as a result of Freeda. Mike didnt handle it well solo even on a temporary basis and is STRUGGLING on this permanent gig. The show has lost it's spontenaity (sp?), it's connection with the audience and its uniqueness. It just seems cookie cutter and forced. I almost cringe evertime Mike says (when the break for commercials) "we'll be right back with the Mike O'meara show." He states it like he's entertained by it, like he's bragging that he has his own show, it just seems pompous and phony. I havent heard him or Rob really say anthing nasty or insulting to callers like they used to. It's feels as though they should be spinning records in between their banter (ala Jack Diamond). I also cant stand how all the JFK'ers are popping up into the other shows in the line-up (ie. Cakes calling into Big O and Dukes, Mike or Rob showing up on their show, Big O showing up on the Junkies, etc etc). It is such a contrieved way to demonstrate to us dopey listeners that they are unified and one big happy family....

I think it is actually an attempt to cross-promote the shows. But since no one listens to any of these shows, it is a relatively pointless exercise in futility. It would make more sense to have these people popping up on 94.7 and other stations that are under the same management group. But God forbid Mike O'Meara should walk across the hall and stick his head in the door while Cerphe is on. That would be TOO revolutionary.

Well, it might not be revolutionary, but it sure would be tough, considering WJFK's studios are in Fairfax, and the Globe's studios are in Silver Spring.

As far as WJFK goes... when you consider the crap that has been on that station the last few years (James Brown, Bill O'Reilly, Jay something, Peter Rosenberg, Penn Gillette, etc.) the station sounds better than it has in years. Looking around on dcrtv.com and radioandrecords.com, it looks like the ratings have been going up slightly over the last year or so.

The station is in 16th place. It lags behind stations with formats like "classic rock," "tropical" and "gospel." It is an FM talker that lags behind AM-based WMAL. It is a format without an audience.

On the other hand, Mike O'Meara has a hour-long phone interview with...a guy who runs an online poker site. Hmmm.

I do miss hearing Don have his meltdowns on the air. It's kind of like watching a car crash. You just can't turn away.

I worked in radio ages ago. Don would nail the mentality of management in radio. Most of these guys barely made it through college, if they went at all. A lot of them came up through sales and weren't much brighter than a used car salesman. Then, they would be put in charge of these multi-million dollar operations like they had an MBA or something. I only worked in radio for about four years, but I must have worked under six GMs. They were constantly being run out the door because none of them knew what they were doing.

I wonder if Don was just polite and blew smoke up Mike's ass about how great the show is or if he's given any honest criticism?

I don't think Don and Mike got along as well as they liked to portray on radio. I think Don was a stand-up guy and helped Mike get his gig, but I think that's all Don believes he owes Mike at this point. I don't doubt Don has told Mike his show sounds like shit. He probably hasn't been that blunt, but I'm sure he is offering all kinds of unsolicited advice that Mike is obviously ignoring.

Mike must have an identity problem. He called his restaurant "O'mearas" and his radio show "The Mike O'meara Show." Very creative.

I tuned in the other day and they were interviewing some guy who wrote a book about alternative fuel sources (ie. corn). This just drives home to me that they dont know what the "f" their doing with the show. When did Don ever have serious conversations with enviornmentalists? AND IT WAS A SERIOUS INTERVIEW!!!

No one should have even expected it to be remotely like D&M because well.... it's just M.

No, in fact the Stern show is more entertaining than ever now that they don't have to listen to the FCC. The level of crude & offensive song parodies and the ridiculous prank phone calling has been taken to an unprecedented level. Today he interviewed Rosie O'Donnell, someone he has publicly (and rudely) feuded with for more than a decade. She talked some dirt about celebs she doesn't like, how she lost her virginity to a man, and the hollywood chicks she wants to have sex with, etc. She also admitted that she was molested as a child and explained how she was a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.

I couldn't imagine having to listen to a friggin' motorcycle fest, or an environmenalist book review.

I think if Mike is cancelled, Buzz will be retained by one of the other JFK shows (I would guess Big O and Dukes because they have to fill so much airtime and he can eat up a portion of their show by doing his news bits). My guess is that Robee got to where he is because of his personal relationship with Don and will be dropped like a hot potato (unless he is such a wonderful producer that some other station picks him up). My guess is that Beth Ann disapears to some 5 watt radio station in Alabama.

I wouldn't be surprised if, when the show inevitably fails, JFK might just shuffle O'Meara in as a second/third/eighth banana on another show (BO&D likely). I mean, the man obviously does have SOME broadcasting talent, but obviously not enough to run a show solo.

I kind of feel sorry for him -- it's gotta be rough to get such a demotion after so many years spent at the top of the WJFK mountain.

I think the Mike O'Meara show is very entertaining. I think some folks are having a tough time accepting that it's a different show than D&M. In other words, a lot of folks were expecting the new show to be exactly like the D&M Show, minus one personality. The Mike O'Meara show is a significantly different form of entertainment, and it may appeal to a different audience. Mike has cut back on the juvenile antics, while adding a more intellectual dimension to the show. I think it's great!

Rob couldn't have been that great a producer if even Don brought in a "real" producer to replace him after he had been filling in for that role.

Gee - let me translate that. The Mike O'Meara show has lost 1/4 or 25% of the audience that it had in the begginning. Mike can't produce the funny so he has to rely on Buzz reading the newspaper as filler and Mike adding a comment or two at the end of each reading is suppose to be the new added "intellectual dimension" to the show.

Yes. Pretty much. You don't spend 20-some years creating the impression Robb is a pricky Nazi, Buzz is a pot smoking sex fiend and Mike is a jovial drunkard and then throw that all out the window in one day and expect a loyal audience to like it.

That's the problem with Mike's show....No one can agree as to who the target audience is and what's the vibe/point of the show. The show seems to falling into a void. It's seemingly trying to please everyone by touching on sports, current events, enviornmental issues, comedy, games, etc etc and they arent particularly good at any of them (I will give Buzz credit in his news reporting). At least with the Jack Diamond showgram, you get a reprieve from the nonsense when they spin records here and there.

I concur that they will likely end up splitting up the talent with Buzz doing what ever show replaces Mike and Mike being relegated to third banana (and making minimum wage) on the Big O and Dukes Show. Mike does have talent but he's more of an Ed McMahon than a Johnny Carson.....

I've tried the last month or so to give Mikes show a chance. I appreciate local radio and wished Don would have stayed even though I rarely listened any longer..

The Mike O'Meara Show is patently crappy. BethAnn adds nothing. Tonight Buzz ran another predictable story in his newsman voice about a "guy getting a DWI" in a wheelchair(like we haven't heard that before) Robb, who I liked on D&M is relegated to playing 2nd fiddle to Mike- who really can't seem to play the fiddle at all. Mike is a mediocre mimic and lacks the personality of Don neurotic as he may have been at times. His sports loyalities are up north and his political loyalities are predictable liberal crybaby stuff I doubt anyone cares to hear about. Mike has tried to add a "new twist" to the show with more serious and political disscussion and he just can't make it compelling or thought-provoking in anyway.

I'll give the show less than a year. When Don did his last show and Robb got choked up, it was probably because he knew he'd have to be getting a new job again soon. O'Meara seemed like he was leaving the show a few years back after he started eating Paxil or whatever dope d'jour he needed for stress.

I think the show is a transitional, fill-in, holding pattern thing. Prime the airwaves for someone new (and funny) like O and Dukes. I was a fan of 0&A even with the tape delay and lack of a local element. I would have been really torqed had someone else took over, but O & Dukes made it a little more bearable and now I truly think they are the future of JFK drivetime. The Junks are good, Ron and Fez were nice. O'Meara should have made a better run with the pub because his show will not make it. I know Mike has 20+ years experience in radio, but if he can't make me laugh, my radio is going somewhere else....

>>>Something is just missing and I don't know what. Maybe it's because Mike is doing the same stick and it just doesn't work without Don?

That's certainly part of it. You know, a few years ago (maybe 1999, 2000) I remember Mike explaining rather vehemently to some caller who was trying to bicker either Don or Mike into altering their entrenched roles on the show that, "Don is very type A and I'm comfortably type B. It works this way." (Quoting from memory but that was the substance of it.)

Mike nailed it with that remark, and so have many previous posts. Don was the driver, the pitcher, he really did run the show. I'll be honest, there were many times when Don infuriated me but he was always the heart (and brains) of the SHOW and his innate understanding of how to keep up the ratings and a need for EDGE was where he shone most.

The heavier censorship of today is a legitimate defense for any talk-shock format, but only a partial one; sadly, I have to say that after listening to every episode of Mike's show, and yeah I'll continue listening but the writing is on the wall for my cessation of same, Mike simply isn't capable of carrying his own show.

Another reason I listen is that I don't dislike Robb as much as most here do (but agree that he belongs in the background) and I haven't given up complete hope that some miracle may occur even though things seem grim. Beth Ann needs to go. Mike clearly wants a female voice in some form, so how about limited doses of Katy? Less is more -- something Mike should know after so much time in the business, but then he never had to be a real leader during those decades, either, did he?

Beth Ann adds absolutely nothing to the show. She wasn't bad when Don was there because she kind of played "the mother" role. But without Don and Mike bickering or acting juvenile, she really serves no purpose. When she comes on, it is like a doze of Ambien has been injected into the entire audience.

My big problem with Robb is he went from being a cynical dick to being Jimmy Alexander. I miss Robb the Dick. The radio is full of Jimmy Alexanders.

By the way, I just looked at Kane's page on 99.5. The guy looks like he sounds...a fat, stupid redneck from Tampa.

Unfortunately, without satellite radio, there is nothing else to spin the dial to. I have to sit in Beltway traffic on the drive home and I cant listen to the same songs being played over and over again or the same new stories. I did try listening to some AM station talk shows but they were even worse. I have to say that listening to the "Money Pit" on the weekends is more informative and entertaining than Mike's show. The show BLOWS but it's the only thing on. I have no complaints about the Junkies or Big O and Dukes, they're fine. I dont listen past 7pm so I cant comment on shows played after that time.

I think the only way to turn it around is to recruit some new sidekick for Mike (perhaps a comedian), which JFK probably cant afford and move Robb and Beth Ann to the sidelines.

I even thought G Gordon Liddy was more entertaining than this dribble.....

And I cant stand the fact that they laugh hysterically at each other quips and joke attempts (it does sound like that forced, phoney laughter). And I love it when they get real serious when they interview some of the book writers or politicians. When was Mike and Robb ever serious on the D&M show. They have turned into the beast that they always made fun of and said they hated. Poor Buzz. He's the only one carrying the show at this point.

It's pretty sad these days when the best they can offer up as prizes are some crappy event tickets or tee shirts. Gone are the days when Don would have a car or $10k to throw around.

Any why does EVERY JFK program now have some trivia game component to it. If we wanted that, we can burn CDs of Jeapordy or Who Wants to be a Millionaire. The entire lineup is starting to sound like the same show with different hosts.

The Don & Mike show should have been called the Don Geronimo Show with a few voices from Mike. That S.O.B. Mike (GoldenBoy) had the number one Podcast (over Oprah) and BLEW IT! F'ing dig your heels in and be a man Mike and make the show worth something! I didn't listen to Don and Mike for over twenty years to listen to some shitty producer- Beth Ann - come in and take over the show. MIKE- GROW SOME BALLS! - I want your insight followed by Buzz, then Rob, then Joe, then Charlie(yes Charlie) before I care what the frick Beth Ann McBride thinks. Mike - you have been in this business over twenty years - f'ing trust your gut and roll from it! Buzz and Rob - f'ing step it up and start producing or get out of there and work at IHOP. I am SOOOOOO disappointed at Mike. Step it up and be a man and produce a good show!.

That's because Don was about reality and everything Mike talks about is a false veneer. Mike is a miserable booze hound who can't keep a marriage together and whose career is faltering late in life. His bar tanked and his personal financial situation is a mess. If he talked about those things, he would actually have an entertaining and intriguing show. Instead he has Tony Perkins on and interviews authors no one has heard of about global warming. It is a sad charade that will lead to Mike's forced retirement.

Yes, gone is Don's 'whining and bitching about life health and lost youth'. Yes, gone is the Don and Mike show audience. Only a SMALL mind could enjoy this re-incarnation of the former show. It is a parody of it's former self. LARGER minds realize Geronimo was simply creating interesting radio that delivered ratings over a 20 year plus span. O'Meara has already spun off 25% of that in 1 month. Enjoy it before it gets canned.

I have listened about 10 min a day since the other one left. It is easy to find out what's coming up, because that's one of the major parts of Mike's show, to promote upcoming guests or interviews.
One can, in fact, listen to something, have an opinion, and listen again later. I also listen to 1035 for traffic, but also find it greatly overrated. I also click on 97.1. But the truth is while I used to spend most afternoons on 1067, now I spend 10 min and then it's back to NPR. Mike appears disinterested and so am I!

Apparently you aren't reading. We AREN'T listening. We all gave it a chance and we have stopped listening. We think it sucks.

FYI - I think the Junkies suck, too. I used to listen to WJFK all of the time. I don't listen to it at all now. The station used to be in the Top-5, now it is competing with lowly AM-ers in the mid-teens. It is bad. Michael Hughes should stick to programming music formats, because he obviously knows nothing about news/talk (this is the same guy who got rid of Ron and Fez and initially didn't want to give Big O and Dukes a show because Don Geronimo suggested it, but gave us Peter Rosenberg, Jay Severin and Bill O'Reilly instead).

Be sure you go to O'meara's, tune into the Mike O'meara Show and sign on to Themikeomearashow.com. He's probably trying to get the studio named after him and the street he lives on named after him. And he made that mandatory appearance on the Big O and Dukes show today. How lame. Most of us are writing because we're disappointed about the show and WJFK doesnt seem to care. I'll likely keep listening because there is nothing else to listen to. They need to move Mike into the 7pm slot and put something more entertaining in the drive home slot....

Well I can't make out their faces but since she is in the dominant position and the guy is in the submissive position, it pretty much could be Beth Ann and Mike. Stop being BethAnn's bitch Mike.

I've read all the hype good/bad about this "after D&M show" and my instant analysis is: The Mike O Meara show = After M*A*S*H. Don & Mike show = M*A*S*H. This new show is so much everything the other show was not. And that's not good, imho! Oh well I can always listen to 107.7 or even Gawd forbid 107.3. I feel the Mike show is doomed to early cancellation.

He will never marry her, and he will never again make the money he did on the Don and Mike Show. He is just using her up for her youth.

I tuned in for about five minutes today. I was stunned when Mike was talking about an idea he had just come up with when talking to Carla. Apparently, he has this idea that Robb and Buzz should bring their iPods in and play songs from them and try to guess whose iPod the songs are from.

I was stunned because this is AN OLD D&M BIT!!!!! I have no problem with Mike using bits from the old show. What I have a problem with is this bullshit Jack Diamond-like fabrication that he just thought of it two days ago with Carla. Does this guy think his listeners are fucking idiots???

Oh yeah. Given what I have heard for the past month, he DOES think his listeners are fucking idiots!!!

WJFK is desperately trying to cross promote O'Meara on the Junks and Big O and Dukes. If you pay attention, the guest appearances all seem to serve the interest of getting people to tune into Mikes awful show..

Mikes actually an OK guest on the other shows- he needs a real funy man around to help himself shine. O and Dukes need to get onto the afternoon drive slot, they are young, hungry and far more entertaining.Maybe O'Meara can run the prize closet or drive the JFK van to appearances...

Cross promotion of the virginia-based shows, Liddy and D&M, was very effective for the two shows when JFK was in it's infancy as a talk station.

The WARS between the two shows, however, were always what kept things interesting. Hopefully JFK is just bringing everyone together in solidarity so they can have a messy and sensational spat, on the air.

6/24 - First on DCRTV. Starting 7/7, former WJFK-FM afternooner Don Geronimo (right) will be working for eclectic rocker WOCM (98.1 FM), Ocean 98, in Ocean City each weekday from 1 PM to 3 PM doing "an up-tempo show" with "hit music that doesn't suck" from the 1970s and 1980s. There'll be jingles and he'll "talk up" the records. Geronimo, a three-decade radio vet who retired as half of "The Don And Mike Show" in April, has been spending the time since at his Ocean City beachfront condo, we hear. Geronimo guested this morning on WOCM's "Bulldog In The Morning Show" to discuss his future radio plans. The audio of that interview is available via wocmdg.mp3. When Geronimo left CBS-owned WJFK-FM, he was told that his non-compete contract allows him to work in markets where there are no CBS radio stations, a la Ocean City. Geronimo, a former "top 40" DJ at WPGC, is a big fan of classic pop tunes.....

Remember how nobody knew how much Tyra Banks sucked before she started talking? Well that is kind of like how nobody realized how much Mike sucked before he was given so much time. I hope Don's show streams on the internet. And I hope Big O and Dukes, Rob and Buzz, or Ron and Fez take over WJFK afternoons.

I never seriously listened to the D & M show but the Mike O'Meara show is so far on-par with the other shows on WJFK. I used to be a huge Junkies fan but I get tired of their overt disinterest with their own show and their sense that they've "made" it. Big O and Dukes are probably the most geniune and interesing show on WJFK but is that really saying much?

As far as Mike, if you like to listen to bad game shows daily, tune in. Nothing like obscure true or false questions for 30 minutes (to which everyone guesses the answers). Oh boy, tons of fun!!!!

You're right Jack - Mike is obsessed with trying to be fun with bad game shows. He's been cursed since he met Tiny Tim in Pasadena, MD back in the early 80's. Mike was able to rid himself of Jack Diamond but has been better as a radio sidekick since his WYRE days. And the Junkies aren't much better.

He is witty and funny. he should have his own show.

Every show seems to be the same routine: an author; a game show; news; a comedian here and there; BORING!!!!

They wont even take calls from people who think the show sucks. I laugh each time they put on a caller who states that the show is great. I cant find one redeeming or entertaining thing about it. Mike even admits it's all about passing the time for 4 hours. With the Don and Mike Show and even to a certain extent with Big O and the Junkies, it didnt seem obvious that they were "passing the time." With Mike, it seems like every minute is an effort for them. I cant see how CBS doesnt see this and realize that its going to be a struggle for them month after month after month. Every episode is predictible and seems the same. How much fun was the memory game? It was lame, boring and they made it up as they went along. I cant believe with all the collective time they've had in radio, this is the best they can do. They sound like amateurs who just came onto the radio scene with no angle or agenda. Mike and Buzz have twice as much time on the radio as the Junkies and ten times more than Big O and yet they are running circles around them. I think it all comes down to chemistry and how the talent play off of each other and Mike Buzz and Rob just dont have the formula,

What happened to the days when they would book people who sold everything they owned for a double or nothing bet on roulette in Vegas? Or that guy who would do bizarre, random crap if people would pay him $500 to do it?? Those bizarre people are interesting.

Mike and Robbay are great sidekicks (Buzz is worthless in any capacity, and frankly a creepy weirdo), and I wanted to see the show work out, having been a fan for several years.

But this show's on life support.

MO'M can't bear to have more than thirty seconds of someone else talking, and he even sounds nervous about yielding the focus for that long (he slips into a redundant babble, hoping someone will bail him out...but then interrupts them again).

Robb's "Professor" mode, which used to be funny in the sidekick capacity, has become his continuous manner of speech on air...making him sound far too self-impressed.

Speaking of self-impressed... thy name is Buzz Mike Syphy Elston Birdley Burbank. Enough said. (Just shoot him.)

Satellite radio sucks. The signal cuts in and out as you drive. God forbid you should drive under a tree!

The content really isn't that much better than regular radio. Just like Clear Channel, they play the same tired shit from the 80s and 90s over and over again. Do I really need to pay each month for the privilege of hearing No Doubt sing "Don't Speak" or Oasis sing "Wonderwall?" It's all the same crap.

The show needs better tech support. Beth Ann is a horrible waste. Don would operate the board so smoothly while he was in mid conversation. Mike can't figure it out, he is a great personality but not a show leader. I like Rob and Mike but Buzz is a moron. Does Buzz really believe a 60+ creepy old hippee like him can pull the whole country over to the left wing?
Fire Beth Ann, Limit Buzz to news and comment, no more political agenda. Let Mike be Mike and Rob be Rob, bring in a radio guy to glue it all together.

Obviously you are hanging out with some losers that have XM radio in a piece of shit car because Sirius has over 200 channels and I do not believe I have ever heard them play Wonderwall. Not that I would listen to a sucky channel that played that shit. They have at least 10 channels of music for each style so it is rare to hear a song over and over again. It also does not cut out as long as your car has a decent radio system in it.

You are just a poor ass loser that can't afford Sirius (a big $14.95/month) and are trying to make yourself feel better about being stuck listening to shitty commercial radio. And with Sirius you can listen to it anytime with Internet access...even overseas.

Poor bastard. I feel for you-NOT!!!

I've had both Sirius and XM and have canceled both. They suck. That is why XM is on the verge of going under if Sirius doesn't buy them. HD and Internet radio are much more cost efficient alternatives. It will only be a matter of time before you can listen to Internet radio in your car using wi-fi.

I agree. I am a Sirius subscriber and absolutely love it. I have no intention of ever returning to AM/FM. I rarely have signal problems in my car, only if I'm sitting under a bridge or driving in a parking deck. I mostly stream the signal over my laptop, which is a great feature. I can understand not wanting satellite if you are happy with terrestrial radio, but to say "it sucks" is way wrong. The programming is tremendously better than anything you can find on regular radio, probably a thousand times better.

My wife has become addicted to XM satellite radio.

We spent $600 to get rooftop antennas to get steady reception in our new house. I was ready to cancel XM, but she wasn't.

HD is a free alternative, but I suspect Internet will have the same issues with satellite in finding 'dead zones' where there's no Wi-Fi to be had.

One comment about today's Junkies show:

I get a laugh every time the Junkies talk to Cakes'/Jon Auville's sex/love life with his wife Amy. Im sure most of the audience in radio world conjure up this image of him banging a hot wife. One must remember that he met his wife pre-Junkies days when he was a manager of Toys R Us (or before then). Even the other junkies play it up like she's a hottie (I guess they have to). Jon and his wife are very visible in the Olney community (particularly his wife). I dont write this to be mean, just to set the record straight. Let's just say, Jon's wife's looks are on par with his looks. She is at best a "plain jane", the type that would marry a Toys R Us manager. He must be kicking himself in the ass now that he can pretty much have any women he wants due to his celebrity. And I loves the way he swears he has never swayed..... BS!!!!

I worked in radio for about four years. Even the ugliest fuckers ran around on their wives. I don't believe I knew one person in radio - or television, for that matter - who hadn't been divorced at least once.

When you work local radio, the only real benefit is "the strange." The money usually isn't that good.

So, CBS Radio's legal department has cracked down on the Web stream coming out of Ocean City (Don's show on WOCM). Does anyone else think...

(1) Don's teasing (but less than charitable) recent remarks about Mike and the show hastened CBS's quick action?

(2) Upon his return to the air next week, Mike will miss yet another opportunity to "be real" and acknowledge something going on that his listeners would be interested in, and make ZERO reference to Don or WOCM?

Keep in mind, since they've been on vacation we haven't had a chance to hear so much as a peep from Mike about his old partner (and supposed friend) getting back on the air. Not even a "Good show, right?" (a la Larry)

Also, to jp's "Best Of" question above --

(1) As we've all said, it's BAD. They're going for the least of all possible evils.
(2) They've not even been on the air for 3 full months... not a big library from which to choose BO segments.

RESton --

It's been referenced here earlier, and admittedly it's open to interpretation. I was referring to a comment toward the end of Monday's show in which Don referred to himself as the owner/producer/creator/star/main talent of his NEW show on OCM, followed by a "wink-wink" comment implying that he had been all of these things on the Don and Mike Show too. I didn't write down or record the comment verbatim.

Am I alleging that he blatantly/directly slagged Mike or the others on the air? No.

There was significant levity -- he was joking, of course. It is my personal belief and interpretation that there is a grain of true feeling behind this particular joke.

Others are free to disagree, and I mean no offense.

I have no doubt that privately Don thinks Mike's show is a piece of shit. But unless Mike really crews Don over on something in their personal lives, I find it hard to imagine that Don would overtly disparage Mike on the air. Afterall, based on what I gathered during Don's final days at JFK, it was Don who lobbied Michael Hughes to give Mike a shot at his own show. I'm not sure Don would openly admit that he was wrong and Michael Hughes was right.

Mike's show, before anything else, needs a producer who is from outside. They need a fresh perspective in place. They brough tin too many of the lame people they had before, and those folks just don't hit on all cylinders.

do I really think it will save the show? no, you can't rescue the dinosaur once it has stepped into the tarpit.

Signs Mike O'Meara's Show is in trouble...

- Weatherman Tony Perkins is your most frequent guest.
- You have to rely on Beth Ann McBride for "comic relief."
- Robbay no longer likes being called a Nazi.
- Buzz is allowed to say something besides the news.
- "Buzz Babes."
- Whatever happened to Joe Ardinger?
- You have to be drunk on the air to tolerate your own show.
- Password anyone?
- Your guest list is more liberal than the line-up at Democracy Now.
- You are interviewing authors whose last book was published 20 years ago.
- You laugh incessantly on the air to cover up the fact nobody else is laughing.
- You play clips from Jay Leno because "they are so funny!"
- You prostitute everything you have learned over the past 30 years in order to keep your paycheck.

What I have seen is that the show dropped at least a quarter of D&M's listeners. And that's just for the first month or so when people were willing to give the show a chance. I anticipate by the end of this year O'Meara's ratings will be half those of D&M.

Any ratings info based ion a one month "trend" is not reflective of a three month ratings window. Wait until all 3 months are in to make 1st decisions about this show. PS: Arbitron's information is traditionally 30-45 days late. Going on that,any momentary increases seen by Mike OMara are most likely do to large listener turnout for Don G's final shows. REAL ratings info will not be out for 6 months. Will this show make it? My ears say no.

At this point it is a case of economics. Big-O and Dukes cost less than the Mike O'Meara ensemble. Does anyone think Big-O and Dukes would pull smaller numbers than Mike in that same time slot? I don't think so. As for middays, find some chick-chat show to throw on there. Secretaries at work are the only ones listening at that time anyway.

At an absolute MINIMUM, they should move Big O and Dukes to the 3pm (drive home) slot and relegate the Mike Omeara Show to the 10am or 7PM slot.

Even when Mike has an on air call in "Contest" he will spend two segments or more listening to their stories. After suffering through all of that, he then spontaneously decides who the winner is without consulting with Rob and Buzz. What kind of contest is that? The whole format BLOWS

chadalad, I could agree with that, but I also have thought from time to time that mike's show is turning into the jack diamond show. however, don't have a parallel list of characters from JD's show to compare to mike's.

And that comparison's particularly ironic because of Mike's history with Diamond... wasn't he a co-host or some kind of contributor to Diamond's show before he hooked up with Don? And didn't he complain bitterly about those years, later on?

(These questions aren't exactly rhetorical - I wasn't in the area at the time and I'm actually wondering if I've picked up Don & Mike's on-air references to Diamond's show correctly.)

Mike is even complimentary (almost in awe) of the fact that Big O and Dukes seemed to have mastered the art of "killing" on-air time. Big O can probably broadcast a 12 hour show that is more entertaining than the MOS. Mike just doesnt seem to have enough content to "kill" his four hours. I recall in the Don and Mike days, they could have taken listener phone calls all day and still had a fairly entertaining show. Mike cant even do that. He seems to pre-screen every call to ensure he doesnt get any of the negative callers. At least Don used to let them on-air and duke it out with them. Hence, Mike is left to "kill" time with his ill-prepared band of misfits who should be selling floor coverings (ie Beth Anne), doing a ten minute newscast on another radio show (Buzz), screening phone call for the Junkies (Rob) or searching the internet for a new girlfriend (Mike) because Carla is going to leave him the day the gravy-trian comes to a halt...........

Back when Mike first broke into Maryland radio, he worked for an Annapolis based radio station called WYRE. This was back in the early 1980's and his boss was Jack Diamond. Jack Diamond was Program Director and Mike hated him. Mike was the early morning DJ and the station eventually became WBEY Country 103. You have probably seen the studios. It's off Rt. 50 after crossing the Kent Narrows bridge and is behind the Fisherman's Inn.

Anyway, Jack moved on to his current situation and Mike eventually became Program Director. Later, Mike left and starting doing free lance work until he hooked up with Don at the old WAVA. He let his success get to his HEAD and backstabbed many people who cared about him.

Hopefully, he doesn't read this forum because it would literally KILL him if he read that he was being compared now to - Jack Diamond.

Beth Ann is representative of the vast majority of people who work in radio and television, primarily in smaller markets. They have no talent and no business being on the air, but they refuse to find something else. You either "have the pipes" or you don't for radio. You hear that on O'Meara's show. Mike - though his show sucks - has a great on-air presence, as does Buzz. Robbay, Beth Ann and Joe sound like shit on the air. The only reason I like Joe is that he doesn't pretend to be good, unlike Robb, so he is enjoyable to listen to (when given the rare opportunity these days).

I parially agree with the Mike "on air" presence. He was absolutely comfortable (and likeable) as a sidekick to Don. He is completely uncomfortable being the "lead" on-air personality and it translates into the audience not being comfortable and it being a sucky show. It's as if they wake up (leisurely) each morning and throw the show together a half hour before they go on-air. It's strange...although they are completely unprepared, the entire show feels completely scripted....

Wait a minute. Carla is a grown woman. If she feels the need to continue to live him, that is her choice. He has made it clear on the air that he is loathe to remarry/. He has also said that he doesn't want any more kids. Of course, that may be just an act for the radio. I just find it weird that she has moved in with him. I also find it a little weird that he takes his daughters on trips where he and Carla share a room. Girls in their age group are very impressionable and that cannot be a good situation for them. How can he be acting like he is going to be a strict dad about the girls sleeping with their boyfreinds and yet he does it.

Plus I hate the way he brags about how young and good looking she is. I can't imagine what he would have in common with her.

Carla needs to stop the ole' birth control and get preggers if she wants Mikes money and he doesn't want to get married. If she was married to Mike, by default, everything he did while they were married she would get half. Sell a business - she gets half the profit. Buy a car - she gets half. Buy/Sell a house - she gets half. JOINT OWNERSHIP. Had Carla MARRIED Mike instead of "Dating" him, her net worth right now would probably be close to 2 million. As it is, she has nothing.

Mike O'Meara isn't worth 4 million, 2 million or half-a-million. Mike O'Meara was an employee of Don Geronimo. Don made all of the money. Mike got paid a salary. Between his many divorces and his failed restaurant, I'd be surprised if he has anything leftover after paying bills each paycheck.

Is that true? It makes sense because even though Mikes name was on the show, he really was Don's lackey many ways. I heard Baba Booey "only" makes $120K a year so that would only make sense the "bit players" ( hwich is really all O'Meara was) get paid far less..

That is pretty standard practice in the industry. That $100 million, or whatever Sirius pays Howard Stern, is a contract with Stern's production company. Stern pays Robin, Baba Booey, etc, out of that money.

If you followed the Don & Mike Show, you would always hear folks talk about Don being a millionaire. You never heard that about Mike. Also, when Don decided to retire, there wasn't going to be a job for Mike when Don left. Don fought with WJFK to hire Mike. To me, that is an indication that WJFK had a contract with Don for X-Amount of money and Don hired his own crew...specifically Mike, Buzz and Robbay. I think Beth Ann, John Norman, Joe, etc, are/were always WJFK employees.

The ratings actually went up in the Spring book. Of course, nobody wants to factor in the fact that period included Don's leaving and Mike's debut, so you will see a certain curiosity bump. I have not doubt by the Winter book Mike's numbers will begin to look sad.

Here's the deal. I listened to Don and Mike for 10 years. When my D&M affiliate in Lafayette, LA dropped the show in 2006 (on my damn birthday, no less), I started listening online and to the podcasts when I couldn't listen online. I was a fan of the D&M Show.

I gave Mike a chance. I really was interested to see what the new show would be like. However, I'm sorely disappointed by what this new show is. Beth Anne is an absolute moron who is addicted to crappy reality shows. Buzz is pretty cool as long as he doesn't start talking about weed and/or politics (but it seems like he's ALWAYS talking about weed or politics). Mike is without a doubt the laziest host on radio today. It seems like all he does is approve the 50 crappy guests that BA lines up each day.

Finally, the Buzz Babes: What is the point of these idiots other than to allow Mike and Buzz to get their nut at work? These morons absolutely suck the air out of the room when they're on the show. This whole situation where they get on their, giggle, and pretend to flirt with Buzz is about as tedious as trying to repair a watch.

When I see an interesting-sounding segment of the podcasts, I'll listen. However, I'm no longer (and never plan to be ever again) a regular 4 hour a day listener.

I haven't listened to the show in a while, so I haven't actually heard the whole Buzz Babe thing. However, if it is anything like Howard Stern talking to strippers, it is death. I think Howard Stern is phenomenal when he is talking to celebrities or bashing one of the Whack Packers. But when he does this flirting with strippers or porn stars, it is boring as hell. I imagine the Buzz Babes segment sounds about the same.

Glad to see some people who agree with me that this show sucks. I'm tired of listening to JFK producers shove the "slaying in the ratings" bit down our throats, this show has no chance. I loved D&M and couldn't wait to listen to it every day, now I am listening in just to give Mike a chance and it's terrible! Rob and Buzz take themselves way too seriously; they have no business attempting to be funny on the radio.

Don's negativity and overall genuine self-loathing was comforting on the show and hilarious. These guys try to pull off the self-loathing bit but it doesn't work because you can tell they are egotistical and are trying to pull off a fake show. I mean the guests are horrific and Mike's (fake) laugh is the most annoying sound I've heard since Ace Ventura. Mike can only be a sidekick.

The show has a bounce in the Spring book from Don leaving. I would be surprised if the numbers hold up into the Summer and Fall books.

What I really enjoy is DCRTV giving kudos to Michael Hughes for putting in place a live line-up at WJFK. The same Michael Hughes who inherited a live line-up when he arrived at WJFK and who spent the next couple of years chasing off people like Ron & Fez and replacing them with canned political shows like O'Reilly and Jay Severin. And let's not forget those disastrous forays into amateur hour with Peter Rosenberg and that horrific knock-off of Loveline.

According to DCRTV, Don Geronimo has been fired from the Ocean City gig.

"Says the mysterious Mr. Sorce: "They fired me for talking too much and adlibbing during live reads. Oh, and I wanted more than $10 an hour. All true, gotta love radio... Next move maybe sooner before later... but I did have fun for a month"....."

As I predicted more than a month ago...

I like Don, but how long do you think it will be before he is bitching on the air about the GM in Ocean City? Even if it is a part-time gig, I'm sure Don will find something to complain about.

Hey, what a suprise. Another episode of the wonderful game "Power of Ten", now "Power of 5." They ask obscure questions which no one in their right mind should know the answers to? What a blast (NOT!!!).

And Mike didnt even have the common sense of steering clear of his stupid bit/impression of Morgan Freedman from his hospital bed. Not only does the show suck, but now Mike wants to teeter on becoming the next Don Imus......

As someone from Salisbury, Md -formerly a resident of FFX cty-, I can attest that Don's show on Ocean 98 was truly brilliant. Especially when compared to what Mike O Meara is doing. I for one wish Don would pull a Brett Favre and come back. It sounded like he was good and happy, and without the snippy ness. Maybe 1067 will wise up. Or just put )&Dukes in afternoons. Mikes show is a bad waste of g\poorly done game shows.


Also, Don was more spontaneous over song intros and taking calls and reading mails then Mike has been in talk format. Interesting.

Now what is really painful is the DJ that follows The Mike O'Meara Show, I dare anybody to listen to him for 10 minutes, I'm not sure it can be done.

No, Beth Ann is still there.

(Yes, I admittedly listen to the podcast if a particular segment looks like it could be worthwhile. Fortunately I live outside the broadcast area and have satellite radio anyway.)

JFK may be wising up and relegating Beth Ann to the producer's room...and it seems Mike is finally noticing that Katie has some potential as a secondary character.

Buzz, on the other hand, sounds lazier and more confused than ever.

And to Lurker's earlier comment, I don't think we're "supposed to be slamming" anyone...but the Mike show hasn't given us much to praise. We calls it likes we sees it, is all.

I heard that and flipped the station.

I actually tried giving the show another go yesterday. They did that iPod thing with Obama's and McCain's favorite songs. It soon became obvious that the point of the bit was to fill 30 minutes regardless of whether or not it was entertaining. What started out as mildly amusing quickly became unbearable listening. I think I made it 10 minutes and I just couldn't listen anymore. Truly dreadful.

The Power of 10 could actually be a better contest.

Most of the clues are written so that contestants can't even guess the answer. e.g. 'He had three kids and was married twice.'

Well, that would be lots of people and does not narrow things down to one particular person. So you could have written a 20-page term paper on whoever's being asked about and not get it until the 3rd or 4th clue!

Consider this instead:

He graduated from Dixon High School in 1928 and then from Eureka College in 1932, becoming a radio announcer after graduation.
He was the only host of the General Electric Theater.
He led the Screen Actors Guild between 1947 and 1952.
He went 'into the sunset of his life' in 1994 after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
His first wife was Jane Wyman and his second wife was the former Nancy Davis.
He was Governor of California between 1967 and 1975.
He died on June 5, 2004, at the age of 93.
He once asked, 'Are you better off now than you were four years ago?'
He promised not to hold Walter Mondale's youth and inexperience against him.
He was President between 1981 and 1989.

Notice how all 10 of these could stand on their own as questions to which the answer is Ronald Reagan. I have tried to make it so the clues go from harder to easier but some of the mid-level clues might be a bit easy.

I have written questions for the VHSL Scholastic Bowl competition since 2001 and wrote the questions used for the Missouri version of the VHSL. I know the needs of a radio contest would be different but many of the same principles would apply.

You know these guys think they are the shit now and are sticking it to the Junkettes. Pretty soon half of whatever they are supposedly making will be going to the fat-cow wives that married them when they were collecting shopping carts in the parking lot of the grocery stores they were working at back in the day. There is a reason why pretty much everyone who works in radio has been divorced multiple times. These guys are on the Mike O'Meara plan.

The biggest problem for me with the show is that Mike and Co. are horrible when it comes to just talking about themselves. I listened to the opening of the show yesterday and Mike came on and hinted at a story he had to tell about his weekend - something about a house full of dogs. When he finally got around to it after teasing it for about half an hour he mentioned his daughters were over for the weekend and brought their dog, plus they watched a neighbor's dog. That's it. There was no point other than he had a bunch of dogs in his house.

Say what you will about Don, whether he was too negative or made the show too insular, but those first couple of breaks on Monday when he talked about his weekend were one of the high points of the week. The guy was a good storyteller. Mike, Rob, Buzz and Beth Ann aren't.

Mike thinks he can just walk all over his fans and we'll still think he's great.

With JFK actively pushing Mike to do personal appearances at bars and restaurants and with Mike obliging them, this should speed up the demise of his horrific show. The low point of Don & Mike's show was when they did the occasional crappy game show (low-budget Jeopardy). Mike's ENTIRE SHOW is based on doing stupid, boring games. Good lord!

As for the Junkies, I personally don't care for them, but they at least try. Mike's show is a fucking train wreck filled with people who obviously don't like each other and who would prefer to be somewhere else if they could find someone stupid enough to hire them.

The bottom line is the whole show sucks. None of them project comfort, ease or enjoyment. It seems as if "it's just a job" that they dont seem to even particularly like. If they are struggling now and it's only a few months into it, how are they going to string it out for years to come??? It's like they have a list of 10 things to do on the show and they repeat the cycle as an endless loop after they've done all 10 of them. The show is forced and not funny. I know all the "hangers on" will tell me to move on if I dont like it. There's nothing to move on to. Im just hoping CBS will replace them with something more listenable.....

A shame that the guy's got a stable of apologists and enablers ready to spring to his defense like that. I'd be curious to know if it was another of the show's "personalities" (I could imagine Robb saying this), or just a former "regular" from O'Meara's Restaurant...

Actually, Mike seemed like a good guy when I hung out with him in the early 80's. However, he developed this obnoxious attitude towards friends when he hit it big, hooked up with Don, and left his first wife Billy. He has made a good living mocking fans that call into his show but it's so funny when it happens to you.

See my post above. The clues are just terrible from a trivia god point of view and from an entertainment point of view. At least make it so each question has one specific answer (i.e. not 'He has three kids and was married twice') and helps the listener place the answer in time (e.g. 1970s), field (e.g. actor or politician), etc.

And yes, as written, the clues are pretty much 'hey, what number am I thinking of.' Good analogy.

Has anyone noticed that when they have a guest on the air, Mike, Buzz and Robb all have to take a turn asking a question? What's worse, they each ask kiss-ass questions. It seems each tries to top the others with the kiss-assness of their question, trying to get the guest to say, "Great question." It really is a far cry from the D&M days when Don tried to get the guests so flustered they would hang up. I miss that.

From what I hear, most radio show Q and A's are scripted:the publicist of the person promoting/being interviewed gives a list of approved and relevant questions to the interviewer.Then the interviewer (or co-host like BUzz,Robb) will chime in with "I heard that you..blah blah blah" and ask about something as if it is a casual reference when its really something thats very predetermined. Listen to them ( if you can bear it) and you will hear this formula like clockwork..

Fake callers are common in the radio biz also, especially on political shows who want to pontificate on a certain point or have a "testy exchange" that will excite listeners...

Remember back when the D&M show took such pleasure in and was so entertaining when they excoriated typical fatuous and inane radio? Who'd have ever guessed that the show without Don would turn into everything they used to mock and skewer. I'm sure that Buzz is too dim-witted and drug-addled to see it but you'd think that Mike and Robb would. What a pity. The show is so painful to listen to now that quite often I don't even bother anymore.

The problem with the show is that they don't have enough material to fill up 4+ hours. It would actually sound better as a Morning Zoo format with music. They take a bit that should run one break and turn it into a half-hour time filler. Painful.

Omeara's show is simply,, unlistenable. I used to listen to Howard and D&M, I no longer have a 1067 preset after Don left.

All those years I used to think Mike was the clever one.

Apperances CAN be decieving.
DON was the one who made the show great, even when he was feeding stuff to Mike for his impressions, because he just doesn't do them now.

Shocker. He's desperate for approval -- even if it's a bald lie.

His tone and enthusiasm really suggest that Buzz hates what he's doing (no great loss there), and Robb is probably too busy trying to sound jacked up about everything to notice that he's a total sellout.

Yeah, these about sum it up for me too.

Funny how no one seems to turn their complaints back on people like "Bob" and "Justin," thusly -- if you don't like our comments, why read them? There are certainly enough other fora on this site and elsewhere to attract your attention.

It's only radio, after all. We all need to lighten up, or risk becoming fanatics like our friends on the other D&M board.

I always thought Buzz was the best thing about D&M and the only good thing about the new show. They guy makes maybe 5 comments in an hour and they are the 5 funniest things in the hour.

I've really resisted bagging on the Mike show because I was a big D&M fan for 15 yrs, but it really doesn't keep my attention for more than 5 mins. Don always seemed honest. Mike doesn't. Mike's nicer to the guests but I always picture him as the guy that would insult you and your girlfriend if you met him at a Junkies event.

BTW, I was kind of out of touch when Don left the show and I never really heard the in-depth story of why he left so quickly. Is the story on line anywhere?

My only negative is this - keep the buzz babes out of the studio. They should be seen and not heard. The Friday shows are good as usual until the hens start clicking, then the show becomes quite annoying.

He, along w/ buzz and rob, are all talented radio personalities and they compliment one another very well. I do miss Don - he was the very best, no doubt. But even w/o him this is still the best thing on the radio.

You have to appreciate the fact that these guys open their lives up on the radio. It makes the show something more then just entertaining.

If you don't get the clever humor, etc, then move downward to Stern.

My problem with the show is O'Meara does not sound genuine. It becomes vrey obvious when he tries to tell a long and involved story. Don was very good at describing the frustrations of shopping at Walmart etc, Mike sounds premeditated and PHONEY. The guest interviews are awful. Rob no longer drops a funny one liner or sarcstic/insensitive crack like he was good at, he sounds like he is trying to get a drunk into a car. Buzz has nothing but very old pot jokes,liberal politics and sexual innuendo he is too old for.Beth Ann is obviously the "token" female and shouldn't be on more than a minute or 2 she is NOT a good on-air personality.
Katie sounded cute when I last tuned in 2 weeks ago...

WJFK should pay us to be in a focus group. We'd all probably listen if the show could be fixed. Until then it's MP3's and WTOP....

Seriously.

After two weeks off I thought they'd come back energized, perhaps even with a few new ideas and a staff shake-up or two. (Kind of like the way Monday's first hour of the old Don and Mike Show was always good, because everyone was rested and had a few stories to tell about what went on in their real lives.)

This? This is pathetic.

Well, they definitely have no agenda that involves trying to entertain the listenership. They have proven that time and time again.

Somebody above mentioned the rerun of "Family Feud/Happy Hour Friday Feud". I had not heard it first time around, but to be played on "best of", was beyond belief. Mike went from being the Richard Dawson/Louie whatever Game Show host, to saying he wanted to play also, and then after completely botching the intro, ceded the Game Show host role to Robb. What a fiasco of 10 or so minutes!

Another "best of" segment involved the game "Password". The on air cast was so pathetic at giving clues (together with the equally clueless contestants guessing), it was likely the worst on air segment that I ever had the chance to listen to.

To those of you that say, "Just stop listening!", this stuff is so bad, it is compelling radio. But, in my case only 10 minutes once or twice a week, compared to at least an hour a day, with the "old" show.

Hi Rackovan glad to have you on the board. Is it true that Carla use to be a stripper and that she is like 15 years younger than Mike and that Mike is older than Carla's Mom?

Again, Mike and the "gang" always seem like they're doing a 4-hour tap dance to pass the time.... It doesnt feel or sound like they have their heart in it (it feels as thought "it's just a job). I bet Mike leaves it to Beth Anne, Rob and the Interns to do all the pre-show prep and planning and he wallows in about 10 minutes before air time (like he used to brag he did in the D&M Show days). He probably thinks being the mere voice or "talent" for the show is enough.....

Since he is on the BO & D show sometimes he must be there earlier than that. And how does one "wallow in" exactly? If you don't enjoy the show, don't listen. I really enjoy parts of it, and when I don't, I change the station and find out the other stations are playing that same pop crap I can't stand and I end up going back to Mike. I think he is still trying to find his comfort zone. Kind of like when you first started at your job and used to burn the fries sometimes.

But if you like listening to something that others don't care for, more power to ya. But come up with better arguments than, "he's still trying to find his comfort zone." I do know Don left in March. Six months is a lot of time. Oh well, glad to keep the thread going.

It's amazing how little talent Mike really has. Donnie G was really carrying that show. Mike was a good sidekick, I'll give him that. But, they didn't promote Ed McMahon to Johnny Carson's slot when Johnny retired. And they shouldn't have even considered moving Mike up the ladder.

I guess it's easy for those who read these negative comments to write in and say - well if you don't like it switch the channel! The problem is that many of us have been listening to Don and Mike for over twenty years so it's a habit to listen to the show. One reason for their success is that most drivers like to listen to the radio on the way home and the Don and Mike show was one of the only good shows in the afternoon. Still, the Mike O'Meara show is one of the only alternatives to listen to. The problem is that Don was the point man of the show and came up with all the good ideas and the show is just not the same without him. Just like "Timmy The Greek" says - it's like Johnny Carson being replaced by Ed McMahon. It's like an athlete who was great in the minors but is only a role player at the major league level.

I know that Mike was great as a morning DJ at WBEY in the early 80's but is better as a sidekick in a bigger market and everyone must accept it. It's got to be killing him that Jack Diamond has been more successful.

I totally agree, and in addition to being my least favorite counterargument from the "critics of the critics," telling us to go away just doesn't add anything to the discussion. I believe we all recognize that we have the freedom to adjust our listening habits (God bless America), but you're right...in many markets, there just aren't viable alternatives unless (and for some, even IF) you opt to pay a monthly fee for Sirius XM. Or, you could always take advantage of the wealth of quality, FREE programming made available via the Web (the main drawback being it's not often live and/or locally-focused).

Maybe that's the answer, since CC and CBS and the other major players in commercial radio don't appear to be listening to a large portion of their audience (because I guess we aren't the target demographic anymore)...just buy a cassette adapter or a double-male stereo cable for your car's in-dash AUX jack, and listen to your iPods...

Sad, really. Radio going the way of the dodo, and dodos like O'Meara and the ones who hired him, hastening its demise.

As "Timmy the Greek" said, Mike is a great sidekick, not a good lead. He is very talented and does not have the time to do his other voices and gags. Bummer.

Couple of items:

-Mike, take your time. The show seems rush, rush, rush. Don't talk about having to go to break, or getting in two more callers in the last 30 seconds. I would be happy to listen to one caller for a few minutes then 5 you hang up on.

-Let the callers talk! He is in such a rush to get to the next caller, that he does not let them speak. Don was the BEST at breaking down callers to the point of having them apologize for even calling or even being born!

-Stop letting Rob, Buzz and BA interupt so much. The show is one big -who can interject their thoughts the quickest. Rob is smart, Buzz is cool, BA is a mess so let them talk for a few minutes and they will be good and gel.

The best D&M shows were when the sat out front of the radio station in lounge chairs and just talked to the listeners. Real people having a real conversation. Real life with real thoughts. Go back to the basics....

The only thing "better" about Mike's show is that I no longer have to listen to Don complain about his life and abuse listeners non-stop. At least Mike seems to like his listeners.

No doubt the dudes life changed when his wife died...but he left the show 7 months ago. And it was in much better shape then then it is now.
That doesn't say a lot about O'Meara. He "likes" his listeners. So "does" Jack Diamond. Say what you will, Don was raw and real. Mike is plastic and phony.

Omeara STFU on politics! It's ok to have an opinion, but he acts as if only his is right, then says in the same breath that his show doesn't have an agenda. He is hopelessly stupid simply repeating whatever was said on cable that that day on any given issue regarding the election. Jesus, this kind of stuff was never a factor on the other show. Omeara, make with the funny or just go put on a sandwich board for Obama and state your show as a politicial one, which it has sadly become.
PS, I am also for Obama. So there are no sour grapes in my critique. But guys like him certainly don't help the Obama cause, he's just too paranoid and stupid.

the terms he left with were generally of a funny nature in quotes in the trade publications. he said he had fun.
i also wonder what direction mike is taking his show in. he should do more impressions, which used to be his strong suite.
i do like big o & dukes in the 10-3 alot. they might do better in 3-7d drive time than mike is.

I believe Don was essentially canned after about two weeks.

Don is a great talent. But I don't doubt he is a horrible person to work with. I think his assholeness on the show is just a sample of how bad his is off of it. I don't think there is any chance in hell WJFK would have him back.

It's been closed for a few months, so that goes without saying.

Actually, I went there a few times. Once to the bar, another time for Sunday Brunch and a couple of times for a "nice" dinner.

The bar food and service were fine. The brunch was weird. The food was just odd food you wouldn't normally have at a brunch and a lot of it was just cold. As for dinners, the one time I remember I got a really bad cut of steak. It was tough and full of veins. It was really nasty.

No wonder it went out of business.

Wow! The quantity of posts here (and quality...I'm just sayin') has really tailed off in recent weeks.

It's a good sign - more and more people are registering their staunch APATHY about the MOS by failing to show up here. Can cancellation be far behind?

As for me, I'm proud to say I have no idea what Mike and the peanut gallery have been up to, of late...but one thing is certain. It's boring!

I'm NEW to the area and heard the Mike O'Meara Show around noon on WJFK. I don't know why you are so hard on him, it was really funny. O'Meara is a great impressionist- he kept doing the role of some guy named Chad and some sidekick was playing the role of a guy named O something.If Mike can keep this up, I'll listen midday everyday, great stuff!

People have come to the conclusion that Mike sucks and are fleeing. I'm sure Big O and Dukes will work for less in that time slot and will garner better ratings. Nothing like having a 50-ish fat fuck talk about Mixed Martial Arts and online poker like he is a 20-something. Kind of pathetic.

These are the stations that lag it...

17) WTGB, (The Globe - Another Michael Hughes programmed disaster)

18) WTEM (An AM Sports Talk station owned by Dan Snyder)

19) WACA, (An AM Spanish Station)

20) WFRE (A Fredericksburg-based Country Station that is barely heard in parts of the market)

and WAVA (A Christian Talk station)

I could fart in a microphone for 8 hours a day and get ratings better than these stations. WJFK is pitiful.

Right after Don left, Mike had the chance. Everyone was turning in to see what would happen. He had the number 1 podcast for 2 weeks. He blew the opportunity by being lazy and taking it for granted. If he would have worked and actually sweated a little bit, maybe things would be different now. People are posting what they don't like about the show, but no one is listening. WJFK isn't listening to the listeners and the listeners are certainly not listening to WJFK.

The ONLY thing that I think has gotten better is the comradery between the shows. I kinda like that the different people are showing up on the other shows and supporting each other, appearances together, etc. Unfortunately, the only time I enjoy Mike's show is when someone else is doing the heavy-lifting.

Will everyone please email the show at wjfk or mikeomearashow.com and ask why they (Mike) wont comment on the latest ratings book and whether Carla will leave him when he's out a job? At least Don would address (and make fun of) their ratings when they dropped. Mike is probably so insecure and so insulated in his own world of kiss asses, they he wont even comment on it....

Don't be duped, Ruth... You can bet management is leaning on the staffs of all three shows to support each other, "synergize," be visible and put on the "one big happy WJFK family" face.

I can imagine the Junkies and Big O & Dukes taking to this a little more naturally, and not needing to be beaten over the head with it by Kinard and Hughes. Their crosstalk actually sounds somewhat natural.

But what do you suppose those two shows think when they're told they need to give a crap about Mike's show and what he's doing? It's like being told to smile as you strap a one-ton anchor to your ankles.

I've always wondered why the Junks show doesnt end until between 10:15 and 10:30 and why the Junks are frequently on O and Dukes and O and Dukes are on O'Mearas etc etc.

After a little thinking it's pretty clear the station is trying to give credibility to certain shows by having overlap. I was a little bummed when Opie and Anthony left and though I liked the little I'd heard of O and Dukes, it kind of helped to have Cakes or EB appear on O and Dukes to say these guys are allright..


The Junkies have a good show, O and Dukes are talented and will go far,O'Meara needs all the help he can get. O'Meara himself isn't so awful when he is on another show, but he cannot steer the car by himself. He should be sending cigars and hookers to OC every weekend in hopes he can get a certain someone to come back and revive the miserable failure his current state is.

WJFK- please put O and Dukes in the afternoon drive slot, O'Meara just sucks..

I think Mike will do okay if he can find a job being a sidekick to another D.J., but he can't cut it as the leading man. I think Rob and Buzz are dead weight whose only talent is one good line per show, and that is fine in their former roles, but they really shouldn't co-host. They need to bring in another D.J. and let either Rob or Buzz go, then I think Mike would flourish.

I think Mike O'Meara took a huge risk by trying to pickup where the Don and Mike show left off. The safer route for WJFK would have been to take the show off for a while - then bring in some new and younger talent to play off of Mike, Rob, and Buzz. Maybe two 20ish or 30ish comedians that have a different appeal and point of view. The point is the re-invent the show and bring in something new and fresh that would appeal to a younger crowd. The advantage of continuing the way they have is that they had a loyal listener base and network already in place - which has gradually deteriorated.

I guess it's all in hindsight now - it's too late. The current show is just the Don and Mike show minus Don. Unfortunately, Don was the point man, creative leader, and star of the show with Mike as a sidekick. New fans to the area may enjoy it but people who have listened to the show for over 20 years can't help but compare it to its old format and eventually switch channels.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that Mike is an idiot when doing personal appearances. His ratings have tanked mainly because he's a 50ish fat guy who has carved an image of being an ass to his fans and thinks people enjoy that. I have to admit that I was a good friend of Mike back in the early 80's. I knew him back from his days at WYRE and Bay Country 103. He wasn't a bad guy to pal around with but once he hooked up with Don at WAVA and became 'famous' - he scorned and backstabbed the people that cared about him, such as his first wife Billy. He has made an effort to be an idiot to his fans over the years and is not connecting the younger listeners that WJFK needs. Even though I am happy for his success and have occasionally listened to his show - I have to say that I am pleased to see his fall from popularity and 'what comes around goes around'.

The economics of radio have changed. It is doubtful anyone would have two high dollar "talents" on the same show in this market. I still have my doubts that the Junkies are getting paid as much as they claim. As for the other shows, do you really think Flounder makes more than $40K a year? Or the college drop-outs who "co host" with Kane?

I know that Omeara took over a 60% pay slash when Don G left. Economics were big bucks for the two of them, but Omeara alone is showing that CBS radio is getting what they paid for. It is obvious Omeara is there simply to hang on to whatever $$$ he still can. There is no passion, no effort, and it shows.

"His Hot 97 show, “Real Late with Peter Rosenberg“, has created a major stir in the streets of New York. His mix of “real talk” and underground taste has endeared him to a hip hop community hungry for something both authentic and provocative."

...His show is causing such a "major stir" that it is on between 8am and 10am on Saturday and Sunday. Does he have to go out and find his own advertising for this show as well?

LOL, you must be new here. Meade Skelton is an amateur country musician from Richmond that used to post on FU frequently. His music was generally awful, and the details he shared about his personal life and career were downright embarrassing. He was very narcissistic and thought he was a major talent, which added to the unintended humor he brought here. WashingTone's analogy- "jewish meade skelton"- is great. It's basically saying that Peter Rosenberg is a failure that makes a conscious effort to deny it.

I beg to differ. I think Chad is COMPLETELY starstruck by Mike. He has been a fan for years and seems to feel priviliged to have a chance to rub elbows with him. The Junkies don't seem as happy, but we will see how that all pans out.

I feel sorry for anyone who's allowed themselves to settle for that unfunny crap on terrestrial radio. Elliot in the Morning is by far one of the most awful things I ever put myself through. From the promos where Elliot has this loud ass, stupid obnoxious laugh at the end of something that wasn't funny, their wild and wacky morning zoo motto "smell my face!!", to the boring and never insightful cast, it's shown me just why it is we get people who complain about shows that ARE edgy and funny. When you're forced to belief that shows like Elliot's are funny, your brain subconsciously accepts it as such and you become programmed to laugh at things that are so far below the standard of any other comedic platform. It's PAINFULLY unfunny, seriously. Are people just not going into radio these days? THIS is the talent?

New talent has been trying to break into the industry for years. Aside from mammoth contracts for existing "talent" keeping the available pay locked up, management is simply gun-shy about violating ambiguous FCC rules (which would result in even MORE money gone), particularly in the format and demographics that WJFK shoots for.

Management sticks with the current crop of walking, talking sleep aids because they're SAFE. They've been so beaten down and scared (by the possibility of personal financial liability if an FCC indecency fine is levied), that they've edited the "listenability" right out of their own shows.

I don't think someone has to work "raunchy" or spew political rhetoric to be entertaining or to pull big ratings, but terrestrial radio's general managers are so hung up on finding "the next Howard Stern" that they've gone numb to the other possibilities. This reduced range of role models for new broadcasters as they enter the market is going to ensure that terrestrial radio continues to tank. It's all just stale re-hashes of the familiar, degrading in quality with each generation.

Again, these observations are pretty specific to the "guy talk" format...YMMV.

RIGHT,RIGHT..

WJFK are fools for apying O'Meara what he's getting. If station mangement had any guts, they'd cut expenses by canning MOS, moving O and Dukes to afternoons and then take a little risk with the midday slot on an unknown like they did with Peter Rosenberg few back. Rosenbergs show stunk, but a lot of us were willing to give him a chance as we would with other unknowns..

O'Meara? Let him be the "senior face" of WJFK and guest on the good shows like the Junks,O and Dukes on rare occasions. As a second fiddle he's not so bad. Let him be like WJFKS version of a WalMart greeter.

WTL, I actually think this fool is exemplifying the all-too-common (but still incorrect) usage of the English language that makes "out of" logically equivalent to "in."

So, "fans out of DC" really means "fans who are located in DC," and is logically opposed to "fans outside of DC."

Sound weird? Like I said, it's wrong. As for his name (Fuck DC), I just think he's angry and needs an outlet. We should all be pleased to provide it for him, as failing to do so would probably result in another violent crime somewhere in the Capitol region.

I think Mike Omeara has finally found his comfort zone. If anyone heard him this am (bright and early) on the Junkies, he actually sounded good as the fifth banana.... As many of us have said time and time again, Mike is out of his realm being the lead talent; throw him into an ensemble cast where he can take on a support role, he is actually quite funny..............

"At least the show is still
funny."-Which parts? The endless belching into the microphone, or the endless interviews?

"get over it r-tards."-Anyone who uses the term "r-tard" shouldn't throw the R word around too much.

"There is still only so much b.s. talk shows you can listen

Personal People Meters are a vastly more accurate ratings info tool.

Not only does it show the true breakdown of the marketplace, it changes the
radio landscape.

WJFK is a prime example. Diary method: middle to above middle ranking
PPM method: dead last

WPGC Diary Method: 2nd
PPM Method: 7th

It's a new day with real time ratings, and WJFK is sunk.

I do have to say that even with the miserable WJFK ratings, I hope nothing happens to the Junkies and Big O & Dukes. At least these shows are entertaining. The MOM show is sinking the entire line-up....... Mike was quick to wallow in the good ratings and brought them up constantly during the show. Let's see how he now handles the crappy ratings. My guess is that he ignores them and doesnt mention them. At least Don would make fun of them and even make up jingles for the show when they were in 15th place.....

Did you listen to his interview with the gal who wrote the Sookie Stackhouse books and "True Blood" series on HBO? (About Southern Vampires in Louisiana). He was fawning all over her, telling her how great the books and series were, etc. Then, the more you listen, you realized he had never read any of the books or watched the series. It was like WTF??

If Don had been doing the interview, the first questions he would have asked were, "So when did you get the idea to rip off Anne Rice and Buffy the Vampire Slayer?" "Do you feel sorry for not having an original thought?"

God, I miss Don.

You must not EVER listen to the show. He watches the series religiously. He talks about it to the point where I am tired of hearing about it.
The books I think he was fluffing about...I don't think he knew that there were differences between the books and the series. As far as ripping off other authors etc...Technically they are ALL ripping off Bram Stoker, if anyone has claim to vampires, it is him.
It would be nice if people would not struggle to find ways to criticize Mike! And if Don is so wonderful, why did he get fired from a POS station in OC?

The first work of this show was promising but it has gotten to the point where I feel so embarrassed for them its impossible for me to listen any longer. It seems to me that they took what used to be filler material and are now basing their entire show on it.

I genuinely like the cast members but the show ranks slightly above its own commercials when it comes to entertainment value.

It's a shopping center. I doubt he owns it.

However, the guy obviously isn't a master of finance given how he ran his restaurant and pub. Not that it is an easy field to turn a profit in. But just because you like eating and hanging out in bars doesn't mean you should own one.

It's a different methodology. However, considering that certain stations like WTOP, WASH, etc, are still highly rated, it makes me think that PPM is close enough to work for the industry. WJFK may try to dismiss the PPM, but diaries are not accurate. That's why Nielsen abandoned them years ago and uses technology similar to PPM.

When Don left they had about 25-30 affiliates. Mike now has seven. (7)
That's not nationally syndicated.
It's leftovers at Westwood One, a company dumped by the NYSE today as their

He just also sucks in Wichita, Kansas or Portland, Maine.

From today's Washington Post live chat...

Purcellville, Va.: Paul, what do the PPM numbers mean for WJFK? They have seen a massive slide and I am distraught at the idea that the Junkies and the Big O and Dukes could go away. Is the format dying in general with the new system or do you think there will be a bounce back at some point?

Paul Farhi: There's a place for "hot talk," or whatever the industry phrase for WJFK's guy talk is these days. It's just not as big a place as we once thought. Which means, as one local radio guy told me recently, it will be hard for CBS/WJFK to keep paying big money to "talent" that really isn't drawing what they thought it was.

...Looks like Mike is going the way of O'Meara's Pub and The Junkies are going to have to dust off their Toys R Us applications (seriously, who would hire any of The Junkies outside of their show?)

I think that if Mike O'Meara was a likeable person in this community that everyone would be upset. This is clearly the issue. Anyone who knows Mike personally knows what an a-hole he is and how he has screwed the very people that have cared about him and has supported his career over the years. The excitement on this website is amazing - those new fans in the area just now tuning in his show haven't got a clue why people want him to fail. Just meet Mike and you will know.

I just listened back to that segment -- god, what a train wreck.

Granted the caller wasn't the most articulate about the point he was trying to make (harping too long on the "some of my best friends are Black people" angle rather than sticking to "the show has lost its edge, and here are exhibits a, b and c to illustrate"), but Mike twisted it around and turned him into a Don Imus-style racist.

God forbid he acknowledge that his show is still rudderless (neither good nor bad, just really bland and lacking conviction in any particular direction...unless you count left-leaning politics). Ugh ugh ugh.

Mike, you're a coward. Stop shouting your listeners down and start being honest with us. Honest about your life (which might actually be interesting, if the occasional anecdote actually made the air), or honest about the performance of your show in afternoon drive.

He's an arrogant fuck who took the gravy train and the listeners who put him there for granted.O'Meara: What's hot yesterday is COLD tomorrow.

Don should get his head together and do a new show w/o Mike. Maybe give Robb a little sidekick work, keep Buzz and his hippie drivel in the far background and maybe get a new female with a more sincere radio presence than BethAnn.

We've met Elliot, Roach, the Junkie's, Litty, Greaseman and none of them were a d-bag like O'meara. We should of figured he was an ass when no so called "fans" at the event wanted to talk to him.

When D&M were doing their las vegas style shows i went to quite a few and always found don to be quiet and humble, very friendly. mike, was full of himself and acted like a star. almost the opposite of their on air personna.

I also saw the way they worked, at least at an apperance. Don laid it out and Mike just said, "yeahhhh" a lot.

It shows in the radio show now, too.

The ratings have actually gone up pretty significantly in Wichita. Not surprising, given that these are the same people who voted for Sarah Palin and thought Joe the Plumber was a real plumber and not a total fraud. They probably believe Robb's fake laughter is real, too.

I used to listen to D&M and while I always thought Don was quite caustic and funny, but had this thought that Mike was the truly talented one.
How sad now to hear that Don really was the brains behind the funny.
It is now obvious even the voice impression bits Mike did were orchestrated/written by Don.
The show. under Mike's solo direction has become unlistenable.
Not funny, no edge, no voices.

Booooooooooooo! Last place ratings are what this show deservres.

For years I was a daily listener of the D&M show. When Don left the show suffered but I hoped Mike would pull it out. I listened for several months and he never did. I finally had enough around August and haven't listened since. By the look of his ratings I am not the only one.

Buzz looks like a total fruit. He reminds me of the old nerd character actor Eddie Deezen..

How long is this contract going to last? With the bad economy, Tiger Woods was just dropped by GM. You'd think JFK would pink slip O'Meara's fatass and replace him with O and Dukes or even give Peter Rosenberg or El Jefe another shot. Can Ron and Fez do any live syndication??

From the looks of that video and the pointless and boring guests and games on the show it seems as if O'Meara really wants to get fired. Either that or he hasn't one shred of talent in his fat load of a body. Ok, he did do a good Jack Kent Cooke impersonation but Cooke is as dead as the O'Meara show soon will be.

Oh god forbid they talk politics, and be exactly right about how the election is gonna turn out. If you aren't smart enough to appreciate the show, don't get mad at them.

Couldnt agree more. No point wasting time on this board though, it's a bunch of jealous f-sticks angry at how funny Mike is, angry about Mike's gorgeous fiance, angry about the state of their own p-ss poor lives. Katie is a hottie, as well.

Okay, agree, or should I say "dbldn11" since you replied to your own post within two minutes?

O'Meara's show is rated 20 out of 21. It is a massive failure. Weasel at The Globe, who had a better-rated show, was fired over bad ratings. Mike is toast. His show is awful. And as far as the political talk, I listen to C-SPAN Radio, WAMU and WTOP. When I don't want to listen to those shows, I certainly don't want to tune into O'Meara to hear the same f-ing thing!

Better practice this Mike. It's coming....

I think that "dbldn11" and "agree" are actually Mike O'Meara and Rob-Bay appearing incognito on this web page. Mike - you were ruined the day that Sid sold WBEY Country 103. Also, you do a great Jack Kent Cooke and it was funny back in 1991. However, people can't remember how he talked now - I had to laugh that you even tried doing it. I guess your show is still funny in that regard.

105.9 has Don Imus for morning drive, Cerphe and Cute Traffic Girl for the afternoon drive, and as far as I can tell, is 100% automated/satellite feed the rest of the time.

Not sure if Imus even gets decent ratings anymore, I don't think he was burning up the Arbitrons at Sports Talk 980, and his presence at 105.9 is like his presence at Sports Talk 980, rather incongruous with the rest of the programming.

Speaking of the title subject- how long is MO'M's contract and how much would it cost management to fire him now?

A wise business person would have contingencies in O'Meara's contract that would allow him to be fired for less than the total value of the contract. For instance, poor ratings would be one of the contingencies. However, we are talking about Michael Hughes and WJFK management here, so God only knows what they negotiated. You would think after having their balls in a vice for so many years with Don Geronimo's contract they would be smarter, but I wouldn't count on it.

Mike relys on cheesy games wich was the least entertaining part of the D&M show. Bethanne? PASS! Oh and the old show was compelling cuz of Don's ideas and his chemistry with Mike.
