No.

It was more like Punch. WOO! The. WOO! F'ing. WOO. Button. WOO!

It wasn't funny when he had that idiot on in the 80s. Sure as shit isn't funny now. Sad is more appropriate.

Could be that morning ratings are really high and the rest of the day is a ghost town, averaging out to the 0.5 that ties the Game with jazz.

Sure enough, this is exactly what it is:

Quote:
For the third sports station in town, WGWG-LP/The Game 87.7, the only daypart to achieve any ratings higher than a 1.0 was its non-sports morning show, which jumped up to 1.6 share for Men 25-54 (tied at #25). None of the sports programming on the station for the rest of its day or night could gain a share higher than half its morning show, which explains why its ratings are as low as they are -- even in its target demographic.


Why won't Larz mention Brandmeier by name, though? Are they beefin', too?

I listened to some of it. When Brandmeier asked him what Woo does during the offseason besides make appearances, all Woo would say was how he's counting down the months, weeks, days, and hours until Opening Day. Riveting. Oh, and hilarious. :roll:

Gino did some very good investigative reporting on the flood that knocked out the station. I was worried a bit that they shut the show down intentionally when I flipped it on this morning.

very funny show today with Gilbert Gottfried. He drops a bullsh*t and doesn't get dropped. Pretty sure there was an f-bomb in there too.

his show is the only thing listenable on the entire station. Hoping he goes somewhere else soon.

The Loop would be wise to bring him back. They seem to want to do personality-based radio, it's just that Maxwell was a puddle of wet shit. Between Steve Downes and Lin Brehmer, music-first classic rock in morning drive is spoken for. Brandmeier at the Loop would be the best fit.

i listen to the show when ESPN is on breaks, or if the inneresting meter is high...but it really sucks that he'll have to start over again somewhere else.

where else can they put him?

Well, I just started a thread about CHIRP coming to 107.1 at some point in the next year. Haha.

I can't think of many other stations where he could go. But think about Dahl on WLS and the whole business model of Cumulus assisting with/investing in some new-media entrepreneurship in exchange for cheap over-the-air programming. Cumulus owns 97.9 now, so if the bean-counters are happy with how Dahl is working out at 890, they can do the same for Brandmeier at the Loop, which kind of needs a jolt lately.

Or maybe Brandmeier is almost 60 years old and hasn't been a major presence in Chicago radio since 1997 and this is the end of the line. Maybe that.

if the FCC doesn't visit soon, I'll be surprised. They let ANYTHING out over the air on that show.

At the end of the show, he said they will be back on the air December 1st.

They played a clip of William H Macy from the show Shameless when he was on this morning, and a "Mother Fucker" made it in. They bleeped another F word in the clip, so not sure how they missed that one.

I hope Brandmeier survives in some format one way or another. I would actually consider paying money for a podcast of some sort. I don't get why people don't listen to him anymore other than the frequency he is stuck on. All of this WGN experimentation is stupid. They know what they have and where they are going to go.
