Default Derek and Romaine show, I need to vent

I have been a long time listener of the Derek and Romaine show. Funny show? Yes! Organized? No! My post here is being written out of frustration and I suppose loyal listeners will label me, ummm, what does Romaine call them, oh - sensitive.

I wrote in to Derek and Romaine and asked them to play the song by a gay artist named Sacha Sacket. Derek wrote back that he wouldn't play it but Sacha would be on the show the following Friday. Well, the Friday Sacha was suppose to be on their show was pulled...for reasons unknown. That weekend they sent out their newsletter and they said Sacha would be on the coming week. Well, their show was all repeats. Then they sent out a new newsletter and they said Sacha would be on this week Wed. Keep in mind this is two times they yanked him. They had Parker Ray, editor of Instinct harrassed for pulling this junk.

Tonight on the show Derek says aren't we having some musician on this week or soon? Saget or something like that? SAGET!!?!?! He can't even get the guys name correct? He can't even keep track of when Sacha is suppose to be on? Mention some no talent pornstar and he's on it. Mention some reality TV crap and he can tell you the lighting guys name. A talent like Sacha Sacket is lost. And to top it off SACHA HAS BEEN BUMPED AGAIN!!!! They cancelled the last three hours of their show to go to a party. Still the song has not been played. THREE times Sacha has been scheduled and DnR dumped him. Three times.

No, I'm not a crazy Sacha fan. It's just that it's rare in the realm of radio to have access to gay performers. You can drown in any one of the latest American Idol no talents, hear some Paris Hilton single played like there is a real spark of talent there and feast on the latest tidbit about rock star relationships without any problem. Here is a chance to call in and ask questions, thank an artist or share a feeling and it's lost. And the fact that it turns out Derek and Romaine aren't even really familiar with him taints it a little. http://www.sachasacket.com Feel free to check Sacha out if you like.

for listening. Now I'll let this fade into oblivion

To be fair, I read the newsletter schedule wrong. Sacha is on Thursday, not Wed. He wasn't cancelled this week....yet. :\

Maybe you should email the music shows at OutQ and ask them to play the song, DNR are a talk show. I'm a long time listener too and personally I dont like when they play music, I like to hear them chit-chat, it's entertaining, and that's what people want from their show.

I like when they play music. They only play one or two songs per show.

HAHAHAHA!!! MusicLovinLunk, you're famous! They're talking about your emails to Sacha right now. They said "we have a listener who is going apeshit crazy on us cause of you."

Did you really make an email address that says "really pissed off at d&r right now" or something like that?

I'm glad they talked about my fav punk beefcake, Henry Rollins, earlier in the show. Derek has good taste in men.

Default I wasn't listening

I didn't hear the interview. I don't listen to the show anymore (for reasons beyond the Sacha situation). I hope they were nice to Sacha. Sacha will be in my area performing this April, so I'll get to see him live. And no, I won't be breaking rule #1. I doubt I'll even ask for an autograph.

Did they play any of his music? If I was placing a bet I'd wager that Derek didn't play At a Time, because it's the song I requested. That would be very Derek.

Grace, it's actually evenmorepissedoffatdnr.

I like the show, but I agree that it's not organized. They have been saying for a long time they would read the Parker Ray letters and announce a winner but they never do.

One comment, not about Derek and Romaine, who does Sirius or rather USA Today think they are kidding with "Special just for Sirius subscribers today's headlines from USA Today." That is an advertisement. It's not a service. It's annoying and repetitious. It's amusing how stupid companies think the public is.

Yes, they played his music but I forgot what the song title was. (I have to be honest and admit I don't like Sacha's music myself so I flipped to another stream when they played music.)

I think you're reading too much into Romaine & Derek's actions. They sounded nothing but playful when they kept asking you to call. But you certainly have the right to not listen to them anymore if you don't wish to.

When I heard ABC news on AM before getting Sirius, I never thought of it as an advertismement, but news. I still hear ABC News breaks during one of the political talk channels.

Manco, news spots that ABC News and CNN and Faux do is actually news and various stations purchase that service. It's not an ad that contains "news". Those spots are updated and kept current every hour. OutQ has Advocate news that they play at the top of the hour which for the most part is mixed up so each hour isn't exactly the same, but usually very similar. The USA Today spots are dropped in throughout the show and each one is the same. It's an advert disguised as "news".

I just got Derek and Romaine's newsletter. There is no mention of the Parker Ray give-a-way. Has that been dropped?

I see "Jonathan and Victoria" are on again this week +YAWN+

Derek and Romaine are the hottest thing on OutQ, they are in NYC, why wouldn't they have the Project Runway people on?

Music, I heard it. They didn't play the song you requested. You should have listened, Sacha was interesting and they were very nice to him. Just not nice to you.
