This is not talent, it is an insult to human intelligence, and discredits the good people in american broadcasting.

I am surprised the FCC allows garbage like this.

Does the FCC regulate satellite radio? Cause you have to pay to listen to them.

I heard them, and paid nothing. There are other audio clips that exist, and the content is similar.

If this is their idea of shock broadcasting, the point is made, but it doesn't show that they have any intelligence.

It only shows that they have no talent.

If it wasn't for satellite radio, Opie & Anthony along with Howard Stern and others, they would be totally forgotten. What a shame that would be.

I have joined Mr. Sykes and not taken the time to listen or comment on the audio linked here.


Quality radio once was - in some instances - still exists. Unfortunately quality has been diluted, standards have changed and most of us have just moved on to other media worthy of our attention.

Opie & Anthony, Stern and others are so out of touch because of their inflated egos.

Let me show you and them about a 13 year old kid that is in grade 7, lives in New York state, and has proven that solar panels layed out in the shape of tree leaves, generate more power than standard flat panel layouts.

http://www.amnh.org/nationalcenter/youn ... aidan.html

And I quote this
=======
`I compared my results on graphs, and they were interesting! The Fibonacci tree design performed better than the flat-panel model. The tree design made 20% more electricity and collected 2 1/2 more hours of sunlight during the day. But the most interesting results were in December, when the Sun was at its lowest point in the sky. The tree design made 50% more electricity, and the collection time of sunlight was up to 50% longer!'
======

Opie & Anthony should get a real job :tail

PMC... you must be a riot to be around! :rockon:

Always nice to see TopDog comment on something that he has no idea what he's commenting about.

I actually listened to the link, and while I find it disgusting, I can't help but wonder what the rednecks and trailer park trash would have to listen to if the likes of O&A and Stern went away.

Totally insulting to all pro broadcasters.
If I want a five year old ranting I will call my cousin.

Ridiculous and shame on these cretins, and that is insulting cretins.

John, don't listen.

That is an order.

I haven't listened to Stern for awhile, but did see him on Letterman a couple of months ago...I am reminded of what a great PD said to me years ago... you are only as good as your last air check...

Your reference to `rednecks and trailer park trash' is a good example of the decay that exists because of being given mental trash to absorb.

Anyone that has travelled to Europe or China is aware of the higher intellect level that exists because the population is given infomation to better themselves, and the importance of doing so. I loved being a news broadcaster because it kept me aware and alert of what exists beyond my own space in the world. There are many professionals that work in broadcasting that I do appreciate, because I know they are in the business of communication, and not trash talk like O & E.

Actually the commentator was Jack Bennest and not TopDog. You used the word comment and commenting in one sentence which really makes me wonder about any criticizm :oops: you make. My statement were not about the link but the state of radio today.

No problem HotDog. As poor as your grammar/spelling is, I will take that as a compliment. :tonguewaving:

You really have to wonder about the IQ of people who would listen to O&A day after day. Same goes for Tom Leykis' followers. Dr Laura and her flock were in a world of heir own.

Really makes you wonder how crap like this somehow qualifies as entertainment.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Thanks for the warning. I will presume the clip is of the potty-mouth variety, and if so, I didn't miss anything. And thanks for the Mr. Truly appreciated.

Cheers all, enjoy the long weekend!
