Chris Russell. He used to host a show called "Russelmania" or something like that on the Sporting News radio network. I remember hearing it on WJFK at 3am saturday morning while driving home from work. The Junkies consistently drag on about topics for way to lon and never advance the argument. It seems they will talk in circles for an hour about the same thing. I suspect its because they a

Backstom is listed as 6'1", she is about 2 inches shorter then him in the photo and she is probably wearing 2" heals to boot. So I would think she is probably about 5'8 - 5'9. Assuming that, I would bet she is about 115. On I side note, I don't think that is the most flattering picture of her.

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

Here is what I say to all of you who want public healthcare. We already have a publically funded healthcare service in this country and its run by the Department of Veterans Affiars. Yes, its for the military but its the probably the closest thing we have to a working model of public health care in this country. Yes, its nice for routine, non emergency medical procedures, but if you have an em

Obesity is not the new discrimination, and to say so is ridiculous. An individual has a certain amount of control of whether they are obese or not. The majority of obese people, probably 99%, don't have to be obese if they don't want to. Discrimination applies to something you can't control such as being a different race, gay, or age.

I got it too and it sucked. Now we know which host attracted all the "tiny brains" and retarded callers, hint, it wasn't Don. The truth has finally been revealed about who was the real brains behind the D&M show.

I heard the voice over for the new station identification this morning, and it was terrible. The should go back to the V/O guy they used back in the late 90's who kept saying he had "big balls".

Big and Dukes did a segment were they counted how many times he used "Mike and Mike in the morning" as verbal crutch during one show. I think it was 80times or something ridiculous like that. Yeah, I cant stand "Greenie" on the radio, quite possibly the worst voice on the radio. He's another ESPN no talent blow hard.

If they can talk about MMA and be entertaining about it, then I think most people will listen without turning the dial. MMA will probably be around for as long as Dana White is around. After he leaves or passes on the sport will probably go back into the basement. Perhaps show hosts will actually report on most sporting news instead of making it like ESPN does. WJFK as the current line up s

What drives me nuts about WTEM though is there are commerical breaks every 5-8 minutes. Between each break are the station identifiations, scores (ok fine its a sports station), and the teasers for the upcoming 3rd and 4th segments that amount to nothing, and the intro when they come back from break. I bet in the 3 hours time slot of the Sports reporters, is only 90min of actual content. Its i

There is potential in what WJFK is trying to do by focus in on the local sports and not offer the castrated, generic nuts and bolts sports programming we are used to from ESPN. I guess its a hybrid of guy talk and sports talk. However, The Junkies said that thier show format is not going to change at all. How long do you give them to last with that sort of effort? If they don't focus in mor

How does that work? The air craft radio's a trooper on the ground and then pulls you over? Did you go to court or just pay the ticket?

We've all seen these signs posted on 66, 81 and who knows where else. Does anyone know and/or have met a person who has actually been caught speeding by an aircraft? I've always thought the signs were just idle threats.

I was just remembering my favorite part about the D&M show was monday. Every monday at 3pm I couldn't wait to hear the recap of thier weekends, especially Don. It was almost always a guaranteed 90min of great radio. It made monday worth living. Once the MoM picked up where D&M left off, mondays quickly become the worst day of the week because it started the begining of another week of

One rumor i heard is that the junkies are reworking thier contract and will continue to be on after the flip and that they are probably the only show to do so. Now, how much a CBS contract is worth, i have no clue. It seems like radio contracts are broken all the time on behalf of the station. All this sucks, i enjoy sports as much as the next person. However, 24/7 coverage 365 days a year is

But CBS is so large, i'm sure the right hand has no idea what the left is doing. Companies as large as that are not much more effecient then bloated bureaucracy.

Perhaps if the powers that be at WJFK began to actually promote the station in this area, they would still have a relevant product. This area is full of transplants and goodwill does not last long. To think of adverstsing as a luxury and not necessary business expense is arrogant. Word mouth and viral only works when there is premuim on the product. The last 2 years or so, as we all know, the

Are you all concluding that WJFK is finally making the flip based on all the talent being on vacation this week? They will return to work on monday and only find pink slips? Seems like a realistic scenario to me.

You're right, and when more people die, the government can swoop in and collect estate taxes. Except for 2010 when the Federal estate tax is phased out completely for one year.
