Thumbs down Official Bob Kranes Sucks Thread

Anyone else hear this cheesed--- of a "DJ" on The Vault? Every time I hear this guy I have to turn the station. He's everything bad about DJs: contrived, fake, nasly voice; overannunciated wordssssssssss; smarmy "banter" and one of the worst interviewers ever to be given a microphone (his "interview" with Nick Mason was an embarassment).

Hey Sirius! You can do better than this guy...just find some kid working a local college station and odds are he's better and less creepy!

Hey Kranes, do us paying customers a favor and go find work on XM!

Cool Kranes is terrible

I have to hit the preset when he interrupts...way too often.

But then, I'm hitting the preset for quite a few DJs. Alt Nation, for example, has a revolting woman DJ when I listen on Friday evenings, my favorite listening time. She ruins the channel. I can't hit the preset fast enough. Is it Madison? I'm not sure.

Kranes joins a long list of DJ "personalities" who inflict their idiotic chatter on an otherwise ejoyable listening experience.

I know, the regular contributors will now yell at me to go to XM if I don't like the Sirius DJs.

Hey, f-- 'em if they can't take some criticism of the DJs...you (and I) pay the money. We should be able to voice our opinion on what we like and don't like. There are tons of good talent on Sirius, it's just the law of averages that they hire a Kranes now and again..it's just too bad he's on one of my favorite channels.

And if anyone tells you to go to XM, tell 'em to...well, you get the idea.

Most subscribers like DJs no matter how obnoxious. I have never listened to Kranes long enough to be aware of his knowledge and other positive qualities. As soon as his loud annoying voice comes on, I hit the preset. The few words I hear give me the impression that he is a total idiot.

I didn't know any obscure prog rock bands are played on Sirius. I'll check it out.

all depends on what a persons idea of obscure is i guess..
groups like Brain Box, Man or Soft Machine..not really obscure i guess but not what you normally hear on radio..even back in the day when these groups were somewhat new
he just seems to play more of the stuff you wont hear on Classic Rewind , etc..
now Kristin Stone is another story..she is about the only DJ that gets under my skin

He may indeed have a pretty good working knowledge of prog rock, it just gets lost in his cringe-worthy delivery. The interview with Nick Mason was absolutely no indication he had anything more than a layman's knowledge of the band, however.

Another thing I've noticed is that he has worked several channels in the 14-19 range (The Vault, Classic Vinyl, etc). For some reason, I can't seem to get away from this guy! He's following me all over the f-ing dial; I wish they'd keep him in one place so I can avoid it like the plague...

Holy Douchechills Batman...he haunted me AGAIN today! This genius has started referring to himself by his last name: "Kranessssssssss here...", no doubt tipping his cap to his hero, Ryan Seacrest.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SIRIUS, give usa break from this guy, who has less talent than a Junior High School Media Club Assistant Film Projector Attendant.

I'm gonna start demanding pain and suffering as damages for having to listen to this nitwit!

My wife & I feel the same way about Kranes. We change the channel whenever we hear him. Can't stand his talking over the music, talking way too much and his nasal tones.

The DJ I LIKE to listen to is Dmos (Sorry if I messed up the spelling... can't remember what pops up on the radio when he does speak.) Very laid back, doesn't talk over the music & usually has something interesting to say.

Heh heh, thanks man. I do have to make it wee bit humorous or I'd pull my hair out as I typed these missives. I mean, I have never, ever, ever heard a more obnoxious DJ. And it's just a shame he pops up on my favorite channels. Just when I settle into a groove during my commute, maybe three or four great songs in a row, BLAMMO, King Dipshit comes on my radio and 'harshes my mellow' as it were. I truly understand what it mean when one says "it makes my flesh crawl." "Kranes" has that affect on me....

I wish I could time how long (or quickly) it takes me to switch the station the moment I realize I'm listening to Kranes. It's gotta be less than a nanosecond these days...

Whew, glad I'm not the only one. Otherwise folks might suspect I had a secret "thing" for the guy or something....

Not sure who Dmos is, unfortunately, but he sounds good and I like his style as you described it. I kinda like Pat St. John, though he's clearly bordering on "old-school schlock jock" level. New guy Michael Tearson is pretty good too, as are everyone on Jam_On (Stef, Buddy Cage, etc). The DJs on the Elvis channel border on being cheesy too, but that's to be expected.

I guess Kranes is about the only guy that really cheeses me off...something about talentless SOBs in high-profile positions these days that really sticks in my craw.

What gets me is that they have replaced Dave Mac with him on Spectrum. He needs to go away.

Well, there he goes, haunting multiple channels...I guess no one channel really wants him (though I can hear the spin now: "I know so much about so many types of music, I can work on SEVERAL channels! I'm a renaissance man!"), so they spread him around, and let as many people suffer as humanly possible.

When will they wake up at Siruius and realize this guy is awful...???

Default Reminder

Just had to remind the world how BAD Bob Kranes is! Had forgotten to post that in a few weeks, wanted to keep the thread active. Heard him again today on my ride home...Only guy who can ruin a block of Led Zeppelin.

Hey Mel, should you guys merge with XM, drop this guy Bob Kranes! He's redundant, awful and you could probably replace him with an intern!
