Radio Daze Craze
I repeat, I’m not an Ed Bark starter kit attempting to become Dallas’ radio beat reporter.
But, then again – in the essence of “the customer is always right” – here’s the latest news that filled my email and voice mail while I was outta the country.
*Greg Williams – perhaps you’ve heard of him -- no-showed as a presenter at our Dallas Observer Music Awards show at The Granada last week. When I called him out about leaving us hanging, Hammer said he mistakenly thought the show was Aug. 22 instead of July 22. At best, that’s lame. At worst, well …
*93.3 The Bone also apparently made some changes, firing Cindy Skull (I’m thinking that ain’t her real name) and Robert Miguel (That’s gotta be his real name). I admit, there's absolutley zero sportsy about that transaction.
With Pugs & Kelly gone from Live 105.3, Russ Martin in limbo and all sorts of stations in various personnel upheaval, if I’m a wanna-be radio voice in this city I’m spending my Monday dropping off resumes and tapes around the city. But, of course, that’s just me.
A sportswriter. Remember? -- Richie Whitt
