Death throes of a dying industry...

"Pre-Packaged Bankruptcy" For Clear Channel? - 5/14 - Radio giant Clear Channel Communications has begun reaching out to lenders about restructuring the company's massive debt load just nine months after the company was acquired in a $27 billion leveraged buyout, sources told the NY Post. One topic being debated is a pre-packaged bankruptcy. The talks are at an early stage. Clear Channel owns a dozen radio stations in the DC-Baltimore area.....

I know EXACTLY what you think of me, and I believe the feeling is mutual. And that's fine. You hate the show, the people on it, life in general, whatever. I like the show, enough to come on here and defend it. Thus far, I've been right that the show goes on in spite of ratings and your noise and fake dates and whatever. Doesn't mean it will always be, doesn't mean the plug couldn't be pulled at anytime, and then YAY you would need to find some new outlet. The difference is, you're still the one hiding behind your screen-name. I know having one contact in your phone would validate you, dude, but I don't think it's gonna be me. And you already have the email address, So what's the issue?

This is a school day, right? What the fuck is a teacher in Wilmington, DE doing on a forum like this in the middle of a fucking school day? Maybe I should share your information with the newspaper in Wilmington so the people of the city know what the fuck their tax dollars are paying for.

You're right - anyone who defends the Mike O'Meara show has to have a screw loose. How can Mr. dbldn11 have the intelligence it takes to be a teacher? His claim that there are only 5 people posting to this forum makes me wonder how stupid he is.

Ah nice my 10:35am post made it up in spite of the web blocker. Loc, since you're so interested how I'm on here during the day...they are called prep periods, people. The kids have gym, band, chorus, art, foriegn language, computers, lunch, recess...all sorts of other classes. And yo, talk about lame empty threats, "Um, hello, News Journal? I wanted to report a teacher who once in a while posts on a message board to defend a radio show...during the DAY! Um...hello? Hello?" I mean, cmon now, that's one of the stupider things you've ever posted on here and for you that's really saying something. I know its Delaware but news ain't THAT slow. As for you dap, now that you've cleaned up your shorts after your latest thrilling Ellis experience, if I didn't post on here you would be down to four, we can't have the readership of this thread drop 20% now can we? Oh and look at that we satisfied Sharon's stupidity at the same time...first time Sharon and satisfied have collided in the same sentence in quite some time.

And as for what I teach, not kindergarten, the little ones are honestly too tough, I leave that to my wife who teaches first. They can read when they get to me, go to the bathroom on their own, it's awesome. For me it's Middle School, Social Studies. Old enough to realize they should have some original opinions about whats going on in the world, young enough where they havent been taken over by hormones and attitude. I coach in the HS, that way I dont have to deal with the older kids BS and drama in the classroom, just once in a while on the court.

I think it's tremendous for you, though, to trumpet your ability to explain the press and the mood of the country to me. The delusions are getting a little extreme, man. It's a radio show.

Okay so I took a contract in Chevy Chase and am now caught on the beltway like the rest of the morons. Desperate for entertainment I skimmed past the MOM show and literally had to change the channel in a hurry. I am not kidding. I changed it fast so I would not have to hear the horror.

Ya'no dude - maybe it's time to hit the "Radio Gods Forum" - you'll get lots of attention there.

Chill out and have a good stiff drink.

After all whomeverinthehellyouare: "It's a radio show."

Many of us, unlike yourself, don't have the time to listen to the MOMS start to finish day-to-day (and given the content of this message board, why would we?). Also, unlike (or maybe very much like) yourself, some of us have worked in the radio industry (in Fairfax), or perhaps, have had the opportunity to play golf or drink with, or in, the noxious proximity of your beloved MOM.

I'll share my stories when you share your "double down".

"Beth Ann"? or "Rob(b)" or "Fisty"? Now I'm curious, with whom actually am I speaking?

Are you sure your not Eric the Actor?

It's just a radio show. Right dbln11? Your just here doing research on dumb asses like us. It's just a comedy radio show.

Look around man! It might be to your advantage to know who you aligned with. Here's a profundity. " It's smart to be smart and dumb to be dumb" That applies to all our brain dead NEA union nuts to.

Dap - For people who dont listen everyone sure seems to have a lot of negativity...which is fine. I do listen to everything, well other then the hockey segments with Laughlin, and I never have to worry about commercials or turning it on or off or whatever. Distinctly possible I wouldn't enjoy it anywhere near as much if I was listening live on the radio. But after briefly listening to D&M on the radio a few years ago (right before Philly snuffed them, as a frame of reference, because I was in Lancaster and got the Philly station) and then picked it up again like 2+ yrs ago on the podcast. And like I've said before, it was a lifesaver with my commute. I was bummed when Don announced his departure, even a little worried because as someone else has said I recalled a Don-free show where Mike really struggled in the big seat. But I listen & enjoy it, which is why such hatred and anger has been confusing to me since I first saw the thread a few months ago or whenever. As to your latter point, nah, you're right, I have never met any of them, never been to an appearance, and maybe the first-hand experience and knowledge you speak of and claim to have would alter my opinions. I dunno. I enjoyed them when I was listening to D&M and I enjoy listening to them now. I guess honestly my question would be if you don't listen and you hate them all so much, why are you posting and posting with such frequency and venom? That I don't get.

Fair question, and I'll answer with no venom whatsoever.

On a personal level, I've been around MOM and I don't like him, thankfully our paths don't cross that often any longer.

On another level I believe MOM wastes radio spectrum with a lame, uninspired time-waster of a radio show. Someone with a fresh approach (BO&D for example) should have the opportunity and money MOM and his crew waste - no matter how little it now may be.

MOM doesn't tolerate criticism well, if at all. If you don't believe me, try to call his show during "Phone-o-rama" and ask an honest question - you won't make it on air. The faults of the MOMS show structure, content and MOM's personal weaknesses as a broadcaster have been well chronicled on this message board, at times with brillian insight.

So, MOM wastes time and money and prevents fresh talent from developing in radio - and he's not a nice guy.

That's it, that's why I post.

Why the venom?

Why the venom at Dan Snyder for taking a great football team and fucking it up? Why the venom at Yoko Ono for fucking up the Beatles? Why the venom at Charlie Weis for fucking up Notre Dame football? Why the venom at Brownie for fucking up FEMA?

The Don & Mike Show was great. Mike has fucked up that legacy by doing exactly the opposite of what Don did for 25 years to be successful.

Why the venom? Basically Mike has helped turn his show and WJFK into the fucking Redskins. He fucked it up. He royally fucked it up.

+1, no doubt. At least MOM doesn't charge you to listen to him, unlike Douche Snyder and a Redskins practice.

WJFK was screwed the minute Stern left for Sirius, since JFK could make clients advertise on D&M, Liddy, or whatever crap was on if the client wanted to advertise during Howard Stern's show. Once Stern left, the only "quality" program was D&M and when Don left, what's left? Only a 20th rated show. No wonder they're going to "less commercials", because they're aren't any clients will to pay money to advertise on some shit program that only about 5 people listen to.

The 20th place thing is an absolute killer for the sales department. It basically takes WJFK off the radar of most media buyers at ad agencies. No media buyer is going to be able to justify spending client dollars on a 20th-ranked station, no matter how good a deal they get from Michael Hughes. That's why WJFK is running ads from a handful of bars and car dealerships, because the people buying the ads don't know any better and think they are getting a great deal because Rob(b) or E.B. shows up at their fucking open house or Margarita Night.

What a deal - this is what you'd get at an EB Easterns Motors appearance.

"Hey Ricky, quit joaning on your poo-poo and get a silly".

Snub-a-dub-dub...

No D&M Reunion At Caps Game - 5/14 - Don was at last night's Washington Capitals playoff game at the Verizon Center. And Mike did yesterday's show from a bar near there, and went to the game afterward. So, did we see a Don Geronimo and Mike O'Meara "reunion," the first since Don left WJFK's airwaves 13 months ago, with Mike continuing on his own? Apparently not. No Geronimo surprise appearance on O'Meara's Wednesday show and no reported meeting of the former radio duo during the game. In fact, Geronimo Twittered during the Caps' 6-2 loss to the Penguins (and elimination from the playoffs) that he was watching "American Idol" on a TV in a stadium suite.....

So let's speculate on where Mike is in Don's head...
My guess: He is half - dead to me. I know he is alive, but I'm done throwing bones. I don't want to be associated with The MOMS...

Don in Mike's head:
Dammit Don, throw me a bone. I'm falling apart over here. But shit, if you're going to blow me off than fuck you. I can play hard. No I can't. Donny you left me. Why Oh Why? Rob, I hate it that you have a relationship with Don. I know you're not telling me stuff. Dammit. Dammit. Dammit.

TMOMS, reminds me of footage I have seen from the Vietnam war. I have seen an old Vietnamese woman picking through the bombed out remains of her village with a stick, hoping to find anything left to save. Ladies and Gentlemen... The Mike O'Meara Show!!!

To be fair, Don contractually can't be on the radio; I assume that applies to MOMS as well, and Mike is better off if people begin to get the old D&M show out of their minds and get used to his show.

As for not seeing each other at the game face to face, maybe they did, maybe they didn't. I think probably not, but it was a big crowd, so I can't say it was definitely personal.

I was listening to Adam Carolla talk about his time in LA with Jimmy Kimmel and how Kimmel would take two or three hours to edit together a 10-minute bit for his show. The bit would be killer.

Can you imagine Mike ever...ever spending any time on a bit, much less two hours? Mike walks into the studio, sits his fat ass on a chair, asks for his rice noodles, or whatever shit he's eating on the air today instead of doing his job, and sucks shit for the next four to five hours.

It was sad hearing Mike talk about the break-up with Jarla. One of the first things out of his mouth was "people see our age difference, and they think it is about the money. It wasn't, Jarla didn't care about the money"...

Really Mike? Jarla didn't care about the money? Then I guess it just leaves three things.

1. Your handsome face.
2. Your rocking body.
3. Your non-alcoholic, non-raging personality.

If it isn't about the money, is Jarlas Mom going to return the car you bought her just a couple of months ago?

Wonder how many WJFK staffers check in each day to see if there is any news about their office (the sales staff is probably praying Mike will be cut loose so they can sell spots again!)

Dap - I appreciate your honest, venom-free response and apologize for not being able to reply all day, I just got back after an all-day class trip. If you have had personal experiences with any or all of the on-air personalities or station personnel then your anger is a lot more understandable, If people I didn't like or didn't get along with had a public forum where I could bitch them out, I would probably do it too. I hear you in regards to not taking criticism well, but I think that's a much more common thing, with radio/entertainment people and with people in general. If someone was to criticize my teaching or coaching I would love to believe I could cooly and calmly process it and appreciate it and learn from it. I think we all know that is sometimes easier said then done, though. I think most people don't take criticism well, so to me that is less of a big deal. I can see how it could piss people off though.

As to Loc and the posters that followed, I guess my lack of time and history with the D&M Show made it easier for me to see the two shows as two separate entities. I loved D&M when I listened back in the day when I could (pre-Freda's passing) and thoroughly enjoyed the year or year and a half that I podcasted before they split and never missed a segment. I hated the long vacations and turned friends onto the show. I was bummed they were splitting, but I was able to go into MOM knowing it wasn't gonna be as good, but that hopefully it would still be good. I wouldn't be comparing it to the Beatles, and certainly not the Redskins, because I hate the fucking Redskins, I'm a Giants fan...one more reason for us all to get along. (sigh) Anyway, I can see how personal someone could take it if change was brought to something you truly loved and you were powerless to do anything about it. I can see that, I guess.

One thing I was thinking about, and the "oh Don was at the game and snubbed Mike" post made me think of it, again, I don't have a ton of knowledge about this, but the two great radio pairings I have enjoyed in my lifetime - D&M and Mike and the Mad Dog, who I grew up listening to in NY. Both 20+ year partnerships, both split last year, both had pseudo-ackward goodbyes...I wonder if dealing with someone so damn much every day for so long in such a talky job just eventually burns down to nothing. I would think even if there werent hard feelings, which it seems there are, Don wouldnt want to reunite because then you deal with "oh are they reuniting? is Don coming back? did Mike need Don to come back?" and on and on. Same thing with Mike and the Dog. Even if they were to both fall flat on their own, to me it would seem they are both too proud to admit they were better together then they are apart. That being said, this is a Fairfax/DC thread, I dont wanna glut it with NY-centric stuff.

And Tuttle, the "Delirious" is George Takei, when being asked about gay marriage laws and his being able to marry his longtime partner. The dinner dates quote is awesome, I dunno what its from though, sorry.

Jesus Christ have mercy! what a rambling incoherent pile of shit! Make a decision for once in your life. Either like MOM or discredit him for the failure he is! Enough of your mental gymnastics already! I know your a teacher but this isn't freeking rocket science.

It's not the big words all in a row. Its you incessant efforts to nuance the main issue on this board. The Mike O'Meara Show Sucks. It sucked yesterday, it sucks today, and it will damn sure suck tomorrow.

As for the George Takei clip: He was "delirious with joy", I'm looking for the brother who was "...Absolutely deliriously happy to be here"... good looking out though.

mcsmack- You had me at Drunk Nick Nolte... You killed me with Vagina Monologues...

Another business deal Mike dropped the ball on. He was going to have himself a little chain of O'Meara's, wasn't he? How many friends did he expect to bail him out in the end?

What a complete failure that guy is.

I love this whole "ratings don't matter" bullshit. That's why the industry has Arbitron and "the book," because "ratings don't matter." That's why Cerphe and Weasel are out on their asses. That's why WTOP, the top station in the market, bills $50 million while WJFK bills $15 million (it will probably be half that in 2009). Because "ratings don't matter."

Even though Mike is a bloated turd and has no talent, I was suprised to see him date (and marry) such slutty looking women. Wow, they all look like such whores. He's made some money in his career, (thanks to Donnie G) so you'd think he could date someone a little better. Are all his female listeners such skanks?

From DCRTV message board yesterday, more deserved (not) love for whooowah-monger MOM. As you may expect this post generated a number of "why are you picking on MOM" posts:

“Is O'Meara dating Czarniak?” Shouldn’t that read: “Is O’Meara dated compared to Czarniak?” as he is older than dirt, fatter than Fat Albert; dumber than Dumb & Dumber; a bigger loser than the Caps, Redskins & Caps combined; more washed up than Kathy Gifford; more lame than Larry Flynt; more bleached than Blondie; and last but not least, by his own omission, not able to get it up in the first place. He’d crush her on top and it would be like climbing Mount Everest otherwise. Oh well: there’s always doggie style if he could get on his knees, which Carla wisely thought over again &rejected. There: cry a little about that on Monday Crybaby Mike, Rob and Buzz. (5/17/09)

No it's not. It was posted as a question on the DCRTV message board and someone included it in the post I quoted.

Were a Lindsay/MOM hookup to occur (which is a prospect to heinous to imagine), on any level the FFU/MOMS ninjas would have to spring into action and rescue her from the greasy clutches of MOM!

Carla looks kind of like a mentally-retarded Czarniak (the Rain Man, of the Czarniak family, if you will). That could be the reason behind the speculation.

Well surprise, surprise: The JFK 'sports flip' rumors won't die - this latest rumor will probably be good for the Junkies and cause depression in the BO&D and MOM camps. Oops, from Dave Hughes @ DCRTV.com:

Rumors: Korny To Sportsy JFK? - 5/18 - Some well-connected local radio sources tell us that CBS Radio could be making a serious play to nab former Washington Post superstar sports commentator Tony Kornheiser, now that he's announced that he's leaving ESPN's "Monday Night Football" (newsblurb below). And, we're told, that there are still plans to possibly flip CBS's WJFK from "guy talk" to sports talk sometime this summer. A top CBS/DC suit had no comment when asked about the rumblings. As DCRTV has reported, there were rumors in late 2008 that CBS was planning to flip WJFK to sports talk after the station suffered a slump in the new electronic PPM radio ratings, which debuted in the DC market last fall. So far, those ratings haven't seen a significant uptick, with JFK remaining at about 20th place in the overall age 12+ demo. Also, we hear that Kornheiser was asked to leave "MNF" shortly after last season. "The airline fear was just to save face," we're told.....

So I have been listening to podcasts lately. I pulled up the last episode of the Don & Mike Show from last year. It was interesting to hear Don lavish praise on Rob(b) and Buzz. Then he busts on Mike for being a shitty dad to his kids in a back-handed compliment kind of way.

In any case, the show is free on iTunes. If you listen to segment four, you will hear Don's comments to Mike. It is interesting to hear the exchange between the two in hindsight. Don talks about Mike being overly Type B and Mike talks about being a part-time PD when Don discovered him. You really start to understand the relationship when you realize Mike would have been absolutely nothing without Don.

At some point in that show I think Don may have admonished MOM to "not screw up" his upcoming solo gig, the MOMS.

So my take is MOM can barely keep his head above water professionally (if you can even use that word in a sentence with the name 'Mike O'Meara'...), knows he's a failure and he resents Don for causing him financial pain and forcing him to actually work.

MOM: bitter, f'd-up tool.

In that last show Don did say, "I wish you were retiring with me." I think it is obvious Don knew what was coming and was trying to save his then-friend the pain of realizing what a loser he is.

It is a shame that they did not retire together and retire the show. Don is right. This is something that has been talked about over and over on this forum.

Anyone who has ever followed the show knows that it should have been called the Don show, not the Don and Mike show. If they could have parted ways and retired the show - Mike could have avoided all the comparisons. If he could have gone to a different station or network and brought in a new cast of characters, he would have had a chance to make it on his own. By keeping the network affliates and keeping Rob, Buzz, and the rest, the show didn't have a chance to be successful.

Nailed it here. If there had never been an DMS, many would be OK with the MOMS. But the bar was set so high, and a great deal of it was Don's natural talent at radio. It helps explain all the disappointment with MOMS

Shoot, I have no idea. I rarely listen to the radio because I'm fortunate to have a very short commute (and Sirius). I did listen sometime over the past couple of weeks, but it was for 20 minutes at best.

Any bets that Rob and Buzz jump ship as soon as Don returns to radio? That's assuming there's even a ship to jump off of by that point...

That'd be interesting to see. I wonder if they have a no compete clause in their contracts like Don. I doubt it since they suck and aren't a threat to CBS/WJFK.

Thank You, your Honor. I rest my case.

It must have been one of those hilarious Audio Vault segments. You know the one where Rob(b) plays YouTube clips that reached their peak circulation about 18 months ago? And Mike has to describe what he is seeing in the YouTube clip because he's on the fucking radio?

30 years in radio will give you that level of broadcasting genius.

"Blah, blah, blah... Oh look, we are coming up on a break." Big smile from MOM.

"Already? That seemed fast." Said in the least masculine male voice imaginable.

"Yes Robb, already. Sorry folks but we will be right back after this." MOM, Robb, Buzz et al. sigh in relief as they look up at the clock.

Is it "Drink heavily so we have some excuse as to why our show sucks" Friday yet?

That, or shove your face full of Haggis or some other foreign shit so listeners can hear you eat for 30-minutes instead of doing a radio show.

That's not something O'Meara is capable of, i.e., creating something from nothing. Following Don's retirement, he did precisely what he is capable of which is taking everything Don created and trying to make it work without Don.

At the time MOM must have been in hog-heaven. He had months to "prepare" (HA!, what a fucking laugh that is in retrospect! Subsitute "prepare" with "drink"!) for the new show and 'build' a new show staff, which was the staff Don hired in the first place? Lots of hard work there...

So what did all the time off and creative planning yield? Insipid "games" dreamed up the Rob(b) the idiot. Each game was/is an embarrassing, incomprehensible time waster.

But the games were better than the cringe or snooze producing "interviews" with authors now one will hear from again or z-list "celebrities".

Mix it all together, and it equals pay cuts and a 20/21 ratings spot. Way closer to the bottom than the top.

It's interesting because I listen to Adam Carolla interview z-list celebrities all of the time, and he has a way to make the interviews entertaining...the way Don did.

For instance, there was one show where Carolla was interviewing the guy who does the voice of "Jack" for the Jack in the Box commercials. Carolla promoted the Jack Taco or whatever the guy was promoting, then goes into this rant about the Holocaust or something like that. The "Jack" guy is hemming and hawing uncomfortably through the whole thing. That's the kind of thing Don used to do.

Mike takes these z-list people seriously. They have nothing interesting to say. That's why they are z-listers. You need to do something with it.

I could do a show in 21st place and save the station money by not having Rob(b), Buzz, Beth Ann and Joe sitting around picking their asses while on the payroll.

Actually, it would mean I would have to leave YOUR mom's basement, if you know what I mean.

Keep looking for dust bunnies under the hot water heater, bitch!
