Adam Carolla Missing In San Diego

Shirley from California writes:

I live in San Diego and last week I turned on the radio to listen to Adam Carolla on 107 and he was gone. There was a lady playing some kind of rock music. What happened to him?

I loved his morning show so if you could tell me what's going on I'd appreciate it.

Sincerely,

An avid Adam Carolla Fan- Shirley

Foreman vs. Whoopi

No, not George, but Melissa Foreman!

Many of you have asked.

And asked.

And asked.

So, I finally Googled Melissa Foreman, and it turns out she is right back where she was when she first disappeared from her morning spot, but she's now in the afternoons.

It seems she has had nothing but trouble since giving birth on June 6th of last year (AKA 6/6/06 - scary date!).

Here's her story from her blog:
HEY GANG! IM BACK....SO SORRY, WOUND UP OUT FOR A WEEK DUE TO EMERGENCY GALLBLADDER SURGERY!!

DJ Jobs

Let's face it - DJs get fired all the time.

And nobody knows where they go.

Sometimes they don't go ANYWHERE right away, because they have not found a new job yet.

Now, DJMoves can help.

On the right side of every page of DJmoves.com, there should be a box with job listings for DJs.

Are you a displaced DJ? Use it.

Are you a wannabe DJ? You can use it, too, but don't hold your breath - there are a lot of experienced DJs out there that you'd be competing with for jobs, but Hey, you never know.

Let us know where you land, and we'll let the world know. Good luck!

I Don't Hear Anything Either

Wondering what happened to your favorite Web Radio Station?

It's not your Internet connection, and they did not (necessarily) go out of business or offline indefinitely.

It's a protest of some sort over royalties, blah, blah, blah. For many apathetic listeners, however, it will probably be an excuse to simply listen to your iPod or find an uncaring web radio station that is not participating in the protest.

Here are some news articles about it if you want to get edu-ma-cated:

Washington Post

San Fran Chronicle

Very Pregnant, Very Fired

Lisa Marie, a concerned fan in Fresno writes to DJ Moves:

Athena Matsikas is missing from BigCountry 102.7 and fans want to know why. Help she was pregnant and due in just a couple of weeks.

I've been getting emails for several days about Athena Matsikas, and haven't seen anything (haven't looked that hard) until now. Here's what I found:

According to Rick Bentley writing for the Fresno Bee, Matsikas stated "All I can say is that the station has decided to go to a jockless format for the morning show."

DJ Laz MIA in Miami

Not going to spend too much time on this story, as I suspect it's a non-issue.

However, I've got 500 people an hour writing me and visiting DJMoves.com asking me "WTF happened to DJ Laz on Power 96 in Miami?"

See what the Miami New Times is speculating here [link fixed June 12 2007].

No clue is given, as is usually the case from the radio station's website. In fact, as of this morning, Laz's web page is still up on Power96.com.

Any one have the 411? Post it here as a comment, or email DJ Moves.
