Fat Kid Rocks the Snow

It's been over two years since we reported that Fat Kid moved from a walk on roll in Atlanta to his own evening gig at 96.5, The Mountain, in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Well, it looks like the warm weather started getting to Fat Kid (F.K.). Or maybe it was the fact that The Mountain switched formats from Alternative Rock to Top 40 and brought in a bunch of syndicated shows from other states, dispensing of the local talent. FK held on as long as could be expected, playing 90's tunes til the station brass couldn't take it anymore.

Lucky for FK, one of the last true rock stations in the country had an opening for him. A station with hot chicks (here) and calendar girl contests (here). Sure, he would have to move from a southern state to one with only about 3 weeks of summer. A land with a thousand lakes on which to ice fish. But rock is not about weather.

Anyway, you can now hear Fat Kid on 95.7 the Blaze in the Mankato Minnesota area, or see him on the YouTube video below.

Delightful Radio

Maybe I'm not the right demographic, but I was embarrassed to learn about Delilah while listening to NPR yesterday. Embarrassed because NPR told me she gets 25 MILLION listeners each night and I never even heard of her!

Are you like me? I mean, basically, are you a guy? Then you'll be further surprised to learn the show is essentially a live, more personable version of kasey kasem's long distance dedication segment.

In fact, NPR reported that Delilah personally speaks to hundreds of callers each night - OFF the air! Pretty impressive in any industry, let alone one where somebody has to use their voice and talk for hours each night ON the air.

See more pictures like this and learn more about Delilah at her site, here. Oh, by the way, I'm writing about her because after the publicity she received on NPR, her growing audience and syndication business model will probably result in many of your favorite local DJ's being replaced by Delilah. I just don't want you to get caught off guard.

Howard Stern off the Air?

No, he's just off the market as he is reportedly marrying model Beth Ostrosky right now in NYC at Le Cirque restaurant.

howard stern and beth o get marriedThe wedding has been false-reported in the past, but now it is looking official, according to ETonline as well as the NY Post.

As for the restaurant, NY Times gave it 2 out of 4 stars in a 2006 review, and the readers who left comments averaged 3.5 out of 5 stars.
