BIG JOKE FRIDAY: Remember when Syndication Hosts said they were not out to steal Jobs?

I remember some 10 years ago when some of the syndication hosts said, they were not out to steal jobs from urban radio announcers and one even said “Do your job and you will keep your job and get promoted.” Yes, he was SOMEWHAT right, promoted to do 10 other jobs with the same pay while his old ass continued to get richer (laugh). Urban radio has done such a job on its own people. When I look back at the psychology the former mom and pops used (remember they always cried broke but always had nice cars?) and I still see some of the mom and pop stuff happening on a corporate level. When I looked at the picture of ’s studio the other day, I had to shake my head in disappointment. I thought about how he once said Radio One could kiss his entire ass (laugh) and expressed her dismay over that statement, her feelings were hurt but Steve didn’t give a sh… and he meant what he said (laugh) AND he got even BIGGER where as most of us would have been BLACKBALLED FOR LIFE. He literally just walked over into our arena and because he was not trained like most of us to be an obedient robot, he got the check that we’ve been working for 20 years to get HALF of. Where is the instruction book on doing urban radio? (laugh).

  1. Well, A certain recording artist, who is syndicated( and I dont know why) personally called my program director and has been very persistant of getting my job where i have been winning for years. This certain recording artist has done this in a few markets , so I hear. And this certain recording artist is horrible on the air and everyone knows it and says nothing about it.
    This certain recording artist deserves a beat down for back dooring trained jocks and trying to weasel his way on the air to hear his garbled radio show.
    Most of these artist who have to do radio shows cant make a profit selling records now and cant draw 500 people to a concert and have no income base so they come down to our level to get some income coming in.
    i can draw 500 people if an event is properly advertised and Im just a jock, and most jocks in a good market scan do the same.
    This shit is pitiful, but i guess when times gets bad, we turn on each other like animals.
    I have no respect for these artist who we built up only to have then back stab us casue they have no income coming in.
