So, O&A can't even compete in a deflated market in which every FM station is doing lousy? In other words, they are the WORST of a bad lot?

FIRST of a dying breed.
WORST of a bad lot.

I'll go along with that Sox.

Just in from Chicago:

The only morning show doing worse is WCKG's latest replacement for Howard Stern -- the syndicated duo of Gregg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia. They're faring no better than Shane "Rover" French, who lasted only seven months here.

The ongoing calamity at WCKG is costing CBS Radio millions in advertising revenue, prompting the inevitable talk of adjustments to the station's lineup -- if not a total overhaul of its format.

Here's another classic from the "thread of the absurd" that was quoted before:
Quote:
It's only impossible to get the ratings that Stern got because they are above doing a show that's as infantile as Stern's. They each have about 50 IQ points on Stern, so that means they aren't going to be able to draw in all of the Stern listeners.
Ok, so now O&A get shitty ratings because they are smart?

Note to Tom Chiusano: Start leaving lead paint chips and vials of mercury around the studio; O&A need some brain damage to order to succeed.

the show started(again)with them yelling about the microphones not sounding right(where have i heard that before)!i turned it off...

came back to them talking about that water death(for about 45 min)turned it on and off...then caught some Arnold imitations(is this the HS show)then back to last weeks bit about CSI....yikes!!

Watch out merc, if you keep on listening you may become smart enough to "get it".

Why? These are just radio show hosts, they have no impact on your daily life or mine. I will never understand this whole Stern v O&A thing. It's stupid, listen to who you like and be done with it. I also can't understand how someone can devote their entire life o a radio talk show. I went over the ronfez.net and god, don't these people have lives? Same goes for the Stern and O&A fanatics.

I am casual listener to Stern, Bubba, Opie and Anthony and Ron and Fez. Like everything in life, each one has their good moments and each one has their bad. I don’t care what the rating say, I find O&A more funny then Stern, but when it comes to non Comedy radio, I think Howard has a more interesting show. In other words I find Stern, entertaining, but not necessarily funny.

steve while i agree with what you say understand that most if not all this BS stems from the O&A side...as i stern fan you get sick of hearing how O&A are this O&A are that.how O&A were silenced by stern.O&A were never given a chance.stern is not relevant anymore.stern is a hack.O&A bring the funny and on and on and on......

after being bombarded with this since O&A started on xm then to watch them fail is pretty funny.kinda payback-


thats my take...

Hi, this is Tonyho. I would like to apologize to Reds fans, O&A fans, and even Red O&A fans. Its ok if you are a Red fan or an O&A fan, or both. I have learned my lesson and will be on my best behavior.

"Reds fans normally do not listen to O&A, unless they are drinking or doing drugs."

tony,
You weren't banned for any of those. You were banned for personal attacks on other members. You can attack the Reds and O&A all you want, just not other members.

Make sure you know when I'm joking. I certainly joke with BMF and others, and its not an attack.

And is that guy really a member? Not really.

And, for the record, I always know your joking. Feel free to say whatever when it comes to me.
