Sunday

3 days of morning shift hell are over and it will be rinse and repeat on Friday. I hate mornings with a passion and detest working them. I need a fucking vacation now. Jim called me and said that Barb was coming home and the baby will need to be in the hospital for a couple more weeks. Congrats to the both of you.

California has upheld the right for same sex marriages and I say hooray for them. George Takei is very pleased about it according to this article. I say good for them. It's nice when all human beings have the same rights and no one is held back or discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. George and Brad can now marry and I'm glad for them as well as every other gay and lesbian couple in the country. It's just so nice when the religious right gets shot down when they stick their noses where they don't belong. Congrats George, now do it quickly before the right gets taken away from you again.

Well it's been 3 days since Kidd Chris was fired from WYSP. I just hope they're all doing okay and hanging in there. There was an idea floated on one of the Stern message boards that Kidd Chris should come over and do middays. I think that's a great idea and hope it happens soon. I'd love to hear the show uncensored and free of CBS radio, government bullshit, and the hypocrisy of the religious right. Stern is live tomorrow and I'm setting my alarm to hear what he says about Chris. I hope that Chris will come on and hopefully give us some incite someday but I'm not sure that will happen. I do know that it's gonna be weird not hearing "The Game" at 6am tomorrow and that does break my heart a bit.

As I've said before, the Kidd Chris Show was the best in all of radio. No one else could touch that staff and the quality of the show IMO. I just really worry about the guys without contracts (Metro, more than likely Nogg, Lerch, and the others). I hope they get taken care of, but knowing CBS radio, they might not be. I didn't get to listen to alot of the Thursday show live so I downloaded the podcast, but I just can't bring myself to listen to it, knowing it's the last show. Face it, radio and television are two of the shittiest businesses in the world to be in, and once again I've seen the shitty part of it rear it's ugly head. I'm not sure if Chris and the guys read this blog, but just know that this motherfucker in Knoxville, TN is mad as hell about how you guys were done and I'm gonna stand on top of my soapbox and badmouth CBS Radio as much as possible and call them on their bullshit. I can't do a lot in Knoxville, but I can raise hell about it on here and I'll continue to do so until they make their way back to radio in some form or another.

Well I'm four deep into a sixpack of Woodchuck Draft Cider. Have a good one folks
