(VIDEO) 2011: RADIO “SHOCK JOCK” MANCOW MULLER RETURNS TO CHICAGO OCT. 3RD

VIDEO: MANCOW WATERBOARD STUNT

Popular “shock jock” Mancow Muller announced his return Chicago to Chicago today in a press release.  He will hit the airwaves on WJJG-AM/530 beginning October 3rd, on two shifts; weekday mornings and afternoon drive.

Muller was extremely popular in the 90’s, and is often compared to the style of Howard Stern.  The original show, “Mancow’s Morning Madhouse”, debuted in Chicago in 1994 on WRCX and had a huge following.  Many were amazed at his out-of-the-box antics and his ratings surged.

In a statement he went on to say, “I have been the phantom of Chicago radio the last year, exiled from the PC  landscape of today’s corporate-controlled radio, programmed from lands far away from Chicago.  So when a radio maverick like Matt asked me to air two times a day I said yes!”  Muller added, “six hours of Mancow a day is not enough but it’s a start.”

Well, we will have to see if he still has his mojo…Chicago certainly needs a popular on-air jock back on the scene.  Let’s hope he adds some excitement back into radio.

CHICAGO’S EDDIE AND JOBO ARE BACK ON THE NEW K-HITS 104.3

Eddie and Jobo were released from B96 last year, but looks like they have a new gig.  According to a tweet and article from Robert Feddor, starting this Monday they will be back on the air full-time.   Watch out B96, I am sure Eddie & Jobo are ready for a little payback.  Although they will have a different music format, their loyal fans may still tune in.  I will definitely check them out, because they have a well produced show.

K-HITS 104.3 is flipping formats and clearly know the talent they have to offer. Funny thing is, both stations are owned by CBS Radio. Not sure of the timeslot, but Brotha Fred and the B96 morning show may want to know, competition is arriving!

Good to have Eddie & Jobo back!

BROTHA FRED IS LISTENING…NEW KISS FM DJ LOVING CHICAGO!

It is good to hear that Brotha Fred is listening to his harshest critics.  He replaced the Drex morning show in early January and is working hard to get his new show in order.  While it is always a challenge to replace a radio DJ, he has stepped up to the plate.  In recent weeks the show is beginning to take form, and rumor has it fans have shown their support in a positive way.

Well, Brotha Fred graciously reached out to me today, and it appears he is taking all the feedback to heart.  He is excited to be in Chicago and is doing all he can to give the listeners what they want-a solid morning show, which they can sink their teeth in.

Any new show will have its kinks and being the “new kid” in town is always a challenge.  But it looks like he is headed in the right direction and hopefully Chicago Kiss FM fans will offer him the support he needs to succeed.

Thanks for the email Brotha Fred, hope you find success in your new gig.

WHAT HAPPENED TO DREX? FANS WANT TO KNOW

WHERE IS DREX?

Drex fans are wondering what happened to Drex since his show was canceled on Kiss 103.5 in Chicago.  Although Drex was fired in December of last year my blogs on him have continued to receive extremely high views.  While his replacement Brotha Fred, is now situated with his new morning team at Kiss, it seems Drex is greatly missed.  I really thought his fans would fizzle, but they are still voicing their disappointment months after his removal.

Since this post, many Drex fans have commented on my blog.  An overwhelming amount of comments state he is greatly missed and they refuse to listen to the new team. Many are also not happy with the new Brotha Fred morning show featuring Angie Taylor and David L.  I really tried to give them a chance, but unfortunately the show has not yet reached my expectations.  While Brotha Fred has a great radio voice and is cute as pie, they still need to work on their topics and delivery.  Hit me up Brotha Fred, if you need some tips!  I would love to help you succeed in Chicago:).
So where is Drex?  I have not heard a peep. Drex if you’re out there, your fans really want to know where you are…SO REACH OUT AND TOUCH THEM PLEASE!
Do you know where Drex is hiding?

TOM JOYNER INTERVIEWS MARY HARVEY, DID HE GET COLD FEET? (VIDEO)

TOM JOYNER interviewed Mary Harvey today on his morning show.  It appears Tom had a bit of remorse for allowing it to take place, because he asked her to make amends in private.  It is surprising to me that he would invite her to his show, obviously knowing she was speaking out about Steve Harvey’s infidelity, to then ask her to bite her lip.

It was good to hear her side of the story because she hit on a lot of good points.  Tom was clearly shaken when Mary said she had “no attorney” and countered his questions well.  It was written all over his face.  I question why he felt he is the “chosen one” to decide how she should proceed, by asking her to “come to a settlement and take it out of the public eye”.

When you listen to the interview on the link below, post your comments on your thoughts.  I’m curious to see if you also believe he was shooting for the “big interview”, then back peddled.  Did Steve Harvey reach him somehow and ask him to back off?  It sure sounds like it to me, but that is just my opinion.  Should we now call him Dr. Joyner?

TOM JOYNER SCORES CHEATER INTERVIEW WITH STEVE HARVEY’S EX

STEVE HARVEY

Steve Harvey is sure to be a very unhappy man come Monday morning. Tom Joyner just scored an interview with Steve Harvey’s ex-wife and this Monday.  Mary Harvey will share the dirt on his nationally syndicated morning show, which airs locally in Chicago on Real Radio 106.3.  Mary is expected to give details on how Steve cheated on her during their long marriage. Millions will tune in to hear how the “relationship guru” gets busted on live radio.  It is a well-known fact that Tom and Steve are good friends, but let’s see if this still holds true after the interview!

Steve recently has been on many talk shows promoting his book “Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man”, but he may want to come up with a follow-up “How to Quiet Your Ex-wife After Cheating”.  SNEAK PEEK…https://brittaj17.wordpress.com/2011/01/24/steve-harvey-a-cheater-video/.

BROTHA FRED, LOST ME AT HELLO (Kiss 103.5)

BROTHA FRED

Kiss 103.5 fired Drex and his replacement Brotha Fred began on January 17th.  Well, I really wanted to be fair and give him a chance, but he LOST ME AT HELLO.  The show really has no substance, and I agree with many of your comments, it basically sucks!  Sorry Brotha Fred, but this critique is to hopefully put it all in perspective, and you get back on track for Chicago radio listener’s.

During the first few days, I was waiting for Brotha Fred and his team to get adjusted, and was hopeful they would produce a good morning show.  But unfortunately the show continues to fall flat.  Listed below are some of my tips to hopefully put them on the right path, or Clear Channel may be looking for their new morning show soon.

TIPS

#1-Make it funny. Who wants to wake up just to be put back to sleep.

#2-Spend time on production, a well planned show is evident to listener’s.

#3-Give David L. and Angie Taylor a better role, they seem pointless.

#4-Make show funny.

#5-Make show funny.

#6-Make show funny.

So the bottom line, make the show funny and have some interesting topics.  Otherwise, the trip back to Charlotte may be long!
