Searching The Radio For Humor


News that JOHNSON & JOHNSON have left their gig at THE BULL in Salt Lake City. They were there for three years, and three years at KMPS 94.1 prior to that. If anyone has audio of JOHNSON & JOHNSON, KENT & ALAN, ***anyone on the radio these days*** presenting a morning show with HUMOR thrown in — please send some clips to PUGETSOUND.MEDIA
Radio has changed – and not for the better. If you want to hear HUMOR and jocks that entertained, check out our AUDIO pages.
Radio may not be dead, but it is on life support.
iHeart declares bankruptcy and will come out of it – UNCHANGED. For those that imagined iHeart selling off stations to Mom & Pop companies like the Clay Huntingtons, Ray Courts etc., that ain’t gonna happen. iHeart keeps all their toys and their sandbox gets bigger in the future.
Are you listening to 950 KJR for your sports chat? Mike Gastineau returns to KJR in the midday slot, 10 a..m. – 1 p.m. (And the crowd roars)
KQMV, KUOW & KIRO FM are at the top of the heap in the latest ratings. Rap crap, Lib propanganda and Conservative talk. Nothing new, no surprises.
Do you find radio to be BORING? Is broadcast TV just a bunch of CRAP?
The latest FACEBOOK scandal shows that you can’t trust your personal information and social media stats to any company. The message may be, keep it under wraps and offline.

    You certainly are correct in saying that radio is dying a s….l….o….w…death.Today’s so called “personality’s” in radio most likely do not know what the station they are on even looks like,let alone where it is.I grew up listening to people who were actually IN the station they were on,who gave time checks,read the news, answered the request lines “live” (not these sound bites they use today).It was fun then but certainly isn’t now with all this voice tracking that’s going on with people sitting in a room in New York and being on air here…what bs!! Radio is close to being gone as it is now so the plug might as well be pulled.I did my 30+ years in radio (as most us have done who read this site) and you couldn’t pay me enough money now to go back to it.Your correct about iHeart (formally CC) and what they will do and just go on as they have been doing.The days of “local” ownership are long gone…no more Ray Courts or Pat O’Days to take over again(look what has happen to KOMO since Sinclair bought it).There are just too many new ways to listen to music,news etc.Radio is dying for sure.

    Someone asked me, “Do you ever think you might go back to radio, even parttime?” I said, “There is no radio to go back to.” The studios are pared down to booths, often only a rack of equipment against the wall, blinking and keeping the signal alive. The announcer is in Los Anegles or Dallas.

    Gasman’s return is said to be temporary with a “big name” arriving in July. I think he is going to find a much different radio landscape, KJR had much more influence on the local sports scene when he departed, I believe that with the growth of social media sites and satellite radio, it has been watered down.

    KLAY Lakewood and KHHO Tacoma both run more network sports at night. NBC sports on KHHO, and syndicated sports talk featuring Don Criqui on KLAY. Plenty of sports programming to choose from, besides KJR and ESPN 710.
