Mueller has turned into such an egotistical jerk on the radio, I won't even listen. When I get in that car at 5:00 and if I want to hear hockey talk not NBA talk or Pirates cheerleading I put on the X. Not a fan of Madden's on air persona but he's seemingly toned it down since the music has been removed from the show. I don't always agree with him but that's the point. A year ago I wouldn't have said this, but the Fan's DJ roster are becoming parodies of themselves and parodies of what the station didn't set out to be -- it was supposed to be for fans and not about on air personalities but via social media and the allowance of more and more "comedy" and bits on air it has become a station that is lacking an identity because each four hour segment save for the Tab Douglases and Eddie Crowes on weekends is all about the hosts, their opinions, and their individual or collective schticks.

Why is Eddie Crow relegated to Saturday evening, when nobody is listening?

Good God. Root just cut to Stan and Rossi. Stan's in the middle of talking and Rossi's stink eye'ing the camera getting in his stupid ass glasses adjustment trademark thing. I can't imagine why people don't like this tool.

I've actually heard he's a decent dude off of the air. I have a hard time believing that, but the more I hear it maybe it's true. The heel wrestler thing, although I understand the concept, does get grating at times even if it's just part of his radio gimmick.


I'm sure you have listened before, but I'm guessing the Pens Radio Madden is more of the real guy. No pron stars, no telling people off, he's humorous but does his job. And I'm very glad he doesn't cheerlead at all (sans Ben), even tho he's on the Pens home.


Madden at Pipers Pub on the weekends is actually a decent guy

Cook and Poni had the most uncomfortable moment in the history of radio this morning:

Poni: Come on, didn't you get out of school early when the Pirates won the World Series in 1960?
Cook: No.
Poni: Weren't on top of the Cathedral or learning?
Cook: No
Poni: OK, Bob Pompeani will be with us after the top of the hour, maybe he was at
Cook: (interrupts): LOOK. We are not having this conversation.

ooooooo-kay!

I think it would be very entertaining if he assaulted Poni at some time. Otherwise, no purpose.

Starkey/Dejan twitter mild argument!

Dejan favorites a tweet about Starkey's Power Ranking of rock frontmen
Starkey gets defensive!!! - says "oh thanks for the sarcasm"
Dejan says "I'm on a plane, dude. I like ALL of my followers things."

Starkey: PWNED.

Dejan 1, Starkey 0 awarded no points, etc.

speaking of, I was flipping through yesterday and caught him saying something about "no pr0n stars, and no STP."

I guess I can understand that since ad sales pay the bills and a station welcoming "triple X movie star ________" doesn't exactly sound welcoming to advertisers. But STP?
