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.

I desperately scanned the AM and FM stations on my drive home the other day, only to find that the only other talk shows are either on stations with weak transmitters (poor reception), or political shows that were painfully boring. Hence, there is little else to choose from and we're forced to tune into the MOS. At least this forum gives us a platform to express our frustrations and disappointment.......

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.

"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

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.

So the O'Meara show is a lousy, last-place local talk show. So can someone PLEASE explain to me why this POS is still nationally syndicated?

It's pretty sad when that burned out radio whore Jack Diamond is crushing O'Meara and The Junkies in the ratings. Of course, the station fires everyone except Michael Hughes. God forbid he couldn't be responsible for the disastrous performance of the two stations he manages (the other being The Globe).

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
stock could not generate a dollar a share.

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

But DC has to be the worst. End of the year and he is shit-canned.

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?)

Everytime I went buy O'Meara's, it looked like a freestanding building, not a shopping center. That used to be a frequent occurrence for me.

It's the shopping center just below the star on the map...

It is interesting to read the posts on this site everyday. It's obvious that there are many people that are excited that Mike O'Meara doing poorly and his ratings hitting the bricks.

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.

Nice to hear Mike throw Don under the bus today when a caller said the show had lost it's edge.

Hey Mike, sure you hated that "edgy" stuff Mr big mouth Don did, right?

How's your ratings and your tiny 'reworked' contract?

What an ungrateful asshole who chooses to rewrite history.

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.

At this point I don't even want to see Don reunited with Mike. Mike has proven himself such a phoney and an asshole while flying solo, I don't think he has a shred of cred as a performer or an honest on air personality. 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. You are too old, politically biased and shallow.Eva Braun sucked a bullet along with her hubby- you are like a worthless dog that cannot live without it's master. Hang it up....

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.

I haven't listened in MONTHS!! When I finally find out O'Meara's been cancelled, it'll be by reading it here or dcrtv.com.

What kind of nerd (Rob) takes a video camera to a lunching and then takes the time and effort to post that drivel on the web. Did they really think that was funny and worth the effort? That clip pretty much sums up the show - Lame.

I started out working in radio. If it is any consolation, I never met any DJ who wasn't a drunk, egotistical d-bag. It think that is the personality profile that comes with the position.

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.

I'm glad my soundcard is cooked so I only had to see and could not hear the Youtube video above. Unfortunately its not a tearful resignation speech ( or an on air suicide ala Bud Dwyer)

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??
