Listeners Still Miss Melissa

Nancy from Chicago just commented:

okay - enough of this whoopi - the ratings for WLIT have got to be down.


She made my day - that whole crew on that morning show was the best you will ever find.

Maybe, just maybe, Melissa Forman likes her new shift.

The I-Man Cometh

I'm not convinced that he's definitely coming back. In fact, in the world of denial-media, since nobody is saying that he's NOT coming back, I almost can't believe that he's really coming back.

However, let's face it. IMUS really is coming back.

I've listened to IMUS for years, and the man is not too bad at being self-effacing and apologetic when need be. Most importantly, he's a great salesman - he's been pitching products on the radio for nearly 40 years (yes, I said 40 - WikiPedia told me that Imus' first radio gig was in 1968!).

The rumors of the return of Imus began more than a month ago, when WFAN personalities Mike and the Mad Dog made comments that some people interpreted as Imus would return. I did not hear those comments, but I did hear the Fan in June of 2007 replay Imus moments from 9/11. Could it be that they were just testing the waters?

My prediction is that Imus will return at the end of the summer - after his usual time at the cattle ranch - but that the show will have to sacrifice producer Bernie McGuirk.

If it's ok with Al, then it's ok with me.

101.1 Flips at 1:01 Today - Cute

Back in 2005, WCBS FM 101.1 disappeared in favor of the ubiquitious and annoying ipod-like Jack format.

Now, the oldies format is back on WCBS FM 101.1.

I guess all the oldies DJs were just dicking around for two years. Dan Taylor is back to host the Morning Drive with Mr. G (Irv Gikofsky) and Al Meredith, and Bob Shannon and Broadway Bill Lee are also returning.

McFly vs McFly

Ok, I know you're here looing for McFly, but I don't know which one.

Is it the overnight radio DJ in Denver on Damn 105.9?
We mentioned George McFly over a year ago when he left 105.9 for 99.9, but it looks like he's back on 105.9 again.
[Edit: I think 105.9 just has outdated web pages, and is no longer Damn105.9 but is actually now, still, Alice 105.9 with NO George McFly. McFly's still on 99.9 - check out the McFly Experience here.]

Or is it this trendy pop band?

Seriously, let me know...

IMUS and his morning joe

I just learned from RDNCentral.com that rumors are heating up about a return of IMUS in the morning to WFAN in New York.

See what Don Kaplan had to say about it in today's new york post.

However, looks like IMUS will be exclusively on the radio, as Joe Scarborough's Morning Joe program is set to permanently take over the morning show slot on MSNBC as reported by Jossip.

News about TV hosts like this makes me think about revitalizing NewsMoves.com, but time does not allow.

Mike Webb Murdered

Mike Webb, who we mentioned was fired from KIRO back in 2005, was found dead this past Thursday according to 365gay.com and several other news sources.

Webb was last seen on April 13th 2007.

If you know who did it, or have a tip about Mike Webb's murder, then you must tell the Seattle Police here.

If you know something, but you're chicken you'll end up like Mike Webb, tell these anonymous tip people instead - here. Tips are taken 24 hours a day (1-800-crime-13) and you can remain completely anonymous.
