After an hour on the phone with my bank, we discovered that it was some kind of music streaming service out of Paris.
Anyway, the bank refunded the charges but also canceled my debit card, which means I can’t access my account for six to eight work days.
Lord knows when I will have access to cold hard cash again. This shit is enough to drive a man to drink.
From BJs, off we go to Hurricane Alley, a funky restaurant in Pompano Beach with huge sandwiches to die for, and I, of course, also ordered a Bloody Mary.
Unfortunately, I have a pinched nerve in my leg, which makes standing very uncomfortable, and as the clock slowly ticked its way to the 3 o’clock departure time, I was in extreme pain.
Then, as I reached for another credit card, the Captain, standing nearby, said, “Not only are you riding free today, but you’re drinkin’ free too.”It all started to spiral down from there because you don’t put a radio guy near a free bar.
(Big Bob and I are pictured on top enjoying one of many adult beverages aboard the Tiki Taxi.)
Turning data into useful information requires some creativity.
The big difference between Justin Trudeau and his father is the whole world listened when Pierre spoke.
It is said that having loved and lost is better than never having loved. However, how many lovers do you have to lose before you become a loser?
Hollywood doesn’t portray America as it is; they portray it as the way they want it to be.
A desperate man is the most dangerous man of all.
Radio should have never given up on selling cume. When clients asked how many people heard their commercial, radio should have replied, “Perhaps all of them.”
When someone says, “It’ll only be a minute; it’s never a minute.”
Why do blacks, who only represent 13.6% of the American population, have the government’s full attention and are promintly featured in most movies and TV commercials?
Is it just me, or do the people the police are seen beating, which has everyone upset, seem to be criminals?
Do you think a person who sells drugs to children should have any rights?
The folks I fear most are Muslims wearing backpacks.
Every party needs a pooper.
Geo: It takes a pair of award-winning ears to pick that stuff up, Dougie, and you’ve always had ’em.
PS (and between the two of us); Every time I look at David Fields’ Audacy stock price, I’m tempted to buy a few thousand shares just to torment him. For the price of a cup of Starbucks, I could practically own the company…lol. (CFTR)
Geo: I ain’t saying a word, Jody.
Tight, Bright, Boring, and Brainless. What the fuck is that!!! ALL EXTRANEOUS TALK WILL BE ELIMINATED COMPLETELY; THE ONLY THINGS YOU ARE TO SAY COMING OUT OF RECORDS ARE: CALL LETTERS, ANNOUNCE THE RECORD, THE TIME, AND YOUR NAME
I grew up on PERSONALITY RADIO. Joey Reynolds, Dick Biondi, Wolfman Jack, The Greaseman, Howard Stern, Shotgun Tom Rivers, John Rode, Scott Carpenter, Hal Weaver. Even Cactus Jack Wells could blow this format shit out of the radio water!.
Time to burp the brain again! This is 2023, and radio needs a new playbook if you haven’t noticed.
Dave Charles (still crazy…..for great radio) (CFTR)
Radio Geo: If you had heard what I heard at CFTR in 1972, Dave, you would have understood. Most of the talent I worked with later in the US is in some Hall of Fame. (Ron Chapman’s in three of them.) Obviously, they didn’t get the memo.” 🙂
Geo: Thank you so much, Brent. It’s been an honor to work with you and the KZST staff for all these years, not to mention how excited I am about doing it again next year.
