Right on Nabbl!

His punishment?

1 week suspension with pay. Yeah, they're very apologetic.

Let's write more letters, this time focusing on the fact that the apology blah blah blah

I got a better idea. Let's put on a SHOW. Gilligan, you get the refreshments, proffessor you invent us a soundstage and Ginger and Mary-Ann you take care of decorations......

2002-10-04 04:11:31 PM  

Where did you get the punishment info?
2002-10-04 04:13:34 PM  

From a media board here in St. Louis.
2002-10-04 04:15:37 PM  
I suppose it's a one week with pay pending investigation? or is it just a rumor board?

There will be consequences in this life.

A Cardinals fan or team member will see to that.

The_Synergism, No shiat. Look at my 09:48:16 AM post. I pointed that out. I bet some asshat listner found out and clued him in. I bet that asshat works at that hotel.

In better news I found another pic in thier directory they did not post.

That's the deal - he'll be off the air one week with pay. It's an actual board used by Clear Channel Communications, Emmis Broadcasting and many of the DJ's PD's, etc. It's supposed to be fairly reliable. I was given a password by a friend with the expressed instructions NEVER to post anything with that password - use it as a "read only".
2002-10-04 04:29:25 PM  
Still quite outrageous.....unacceptable punishment. TERMINATION is acceptable.
2002-10-04 04:36:17 PM  
must be fired. overload shane company's chat queues with the radio station to thank. if they can't take calls or place orders via customer service because of folks decrying their affiliation with the station by the thousand they're sure to call the ol' folks at kupd 98.
2002-10-04 04:56:56 PM  
I don't think that would be effective, not to mention I'm sure it violates some sort of telecom laws.
2002-10-04 04:59:17 PM  
well, DOES she have a date? <G>

(BTW I'm assuming "blocked arteries" is code for "died in the saddle with a 12 y.o. crackshore")
2002-10-04 05:03:00 PM  

I'm assuming you're an ugly ass biatch who couldn't get laid if the fleet were in port.
2002-10-04 05:10:43 PM  
MayoBoy, Just how long should the widow wait till she starts to date again? Just how long should red blooded american horny guys wait for her to get done grieving? Just how long till she's on the market again?
2002-10-04 05:12:44 PM  

You're not married are you?
2002-10-04 05:13:38 PM  
Finally I have my priorities straight.

War = excellent
Prank call on baseball player's widow = bogus

That being said the call was out of line.
2002-10-04 05:16:20 PM  
Any convictions or just 5 arrests?
2002-10-04 05:18:24 PM  
Have been for years and also don't let shiat under my skin to keep me upset. I can also see the light hearted side of things and also have a slightly twisted sense of humor. Hell my wife didn't even give me time to croak before she dated the first time.

There is no pain greater than suddenly losing the person you love most in the entire world. Perhaps someday there will be justice, and that pathetic excuse for a human being will experience that loss, and have to live with it the rest of his life. I am not saying I wish it upon anyone, but if karmic retribution happens to make it happen, well, so be it...
2002-10-04 05:28:24 PM  
I live in Phoenix, I forgot that station was even on until today. They play Metlallica, I don't listen to them.
2002-10-04 05:32:59 PM  
Am I late to the party, or has anyone else noticed that the "suspended" picture, as well as mention of the DJ at all, is gone from the jocks page?
2002-10-04 05:35:08 PM  
Man, I'm dumb. Wrong page. Ignore me.
2002-10-04 05:45:24 PM  
Aside from the flamewars on the side in this thread, I find it unbelievable that anyone DECENT human being would find this humorous. We get spoiled by quoting the first ammendment so often to explain/excuse our behaviour that we forget that words really do mean something and we have to be as responsible for what we say as we are for how we drive, how we drink, how we use power tools. Free speech doesnt automatically give you immunity from suffering consequences for what you say. This guy should be fired and would be if I had the power. That said, the station manager or whoever makes those decisions will do what he/she thinks is prudent and if the majority of listeners turn off the station because of poor managerial decision making, then freedom and capitalism will have triumphed.

p.s. Ill buy Tony and his boys aplane ticket to return to phoenix. I hate to admit that Id feel a lot better if I know this guy was going to suffer some real negative reinforcement.

Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

As for getting her number, you don't need to. If you know where she is staying, you simply call the desk, ask "Can I be connected to Ms. Kile's room?" and they will usually do it. There is no exchange of information. It works in almost any hotel, but they will only connect you, not give you the room number.

Let's listen to what Tom Petty would say about all of this:
2002-10-04 08:14:06 PM  
what an asshat. :(

(die-hard cards fan.)
2002-10-04 08:19:38 PM  
Bill O'Reilly just gave out the station's phone # on his TV show... i'm sure it'll be busy for a while.
2002-10-04 08:37:35 PM  
The station said that it was not a ratings stunt.

Everything, and I do mean everything, is done for ratings. The purpose of having a commercial radio station is to get the highest ratings possible.

The only thing that keeps jocks from doing anything, no matter how tasteless, is a highly developed moral code. Obviously lacking in this case.

Exodus 22:22-- Ye shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child.
Exodus 22:23-- If you afflict them in any wise, I will surely hear their cry

Here is the Email address of the Asshat. His Bio was suspended but he email wasn't.


Tell them what you think. Let this ASSHAT have it
2002-10-04 09:49:34 PM  
This gay needs to be strung up by his balls and beaten.

That said, once the station starts losing sponsors because any company that is seen to do business with these asshats will lose business, he will be fired.

"I'm assuming you're an ugly ass biatch who couldn't get laid if the fleet were in port."

Actually, I have better luck with cockroaches & sailors but thanks for the idea!

There should still be a few things left sacred in this world, one of them should be not farking with a widow while she's grieving the loss of her husband.
