Default Garrett on the Alex Bennett Show

What is the deal with Garrett constantly chiming in on the Alex Bennett Show? The guy's an unfunny annoying wise-ass. Isn't he just supposed to answer the phones? When did he become co-host? He seems very disrespectful towards Bennett (the actual host of the show), but Bennett seems oblivious to this. Garrett is like the teflon phone-screener. I wish he'd just fill out his logs and shut the fuck up.

Actually, Garrett is the board-op. The call-screener is someone else (I believe Albert?). They both also work on Lynn's show, but are either not inclined to comment or allowed to comment during her show.

Garret is gone from Lynn's show and now she has Emily from Whatever. I always thought Lynn had just Garret as she only mentions and thanks him. I don't think the two of them got along. Any dirt on why he left Lynn's show?

I think I heard mentioned that Garrett left Lynn's show to work on the Jay Thomas show.

I, too, got the feeling that Garrett left because Lynn can be tough to work with, but I don't know for sure (of course).

Almost any other left talker (and there are many good candidates, like Peter Werbe) would be an improvement over Bennett for that slot. No one but Alex Bennett would put up with such an ignoramous hectoring him with right wing BS at the cost of Bennett using that time raising issues, discussing with callers, interviewing knowledgeable people. His being such a waste like that is what I find unforgiveable about Bennett.

Yep. He took over for the previous board-op Robin who's Jewish and left to work on the Catholic channel:



This is Garrett. He's our board op. He is a level 9 black belt third dan in some video game thing. If we knew what he was talking about I'm sure we'd be hugely impressed. He spends 12 hours a day working at Sirius and the other 12 hours a day fighting with people on the internet. He never sleeps and is very cranky. We hope he doesn't own a weapon. We hope he doesn't have a sexual relationship with Lou Panties or Robyn the wandering jew Gould. Or both. By the way, he used to work with Opie and Anthony. They called him Stinky and made him go topless with WOW broads. Look where that got him. Oh yeah, and he also works on the Alex Bennett show.

Alex Bennett was once a radio icon. His San Francisco show kicked ass in the 90's and before that he made quite a splash in New York. But this Sirius show...I guess time (along with all that weed) has mellowed him out to the point where he's just a doormat and punching bag for board-op Garrett. Today Garrett expressed how great it was working on the Jay Thomas show, implying that Alex was just a piece of shit. Garrett sounds like the school bully and Alex is the 98-pound weakling who can't defend himself. For Christ's sake, Alex, get on the "dynamic tenison" plan or demand a new board-op, and don't make him (or her) the co-host! This is the worst pairing since Lynn Samuels and Barry Farber!
