Saskatoon Radio Sucks!

As if I didn't have enough reasons to want to leave Saskatoon, here's one more... radio. I'm a fan of music. Unfortunately I'm cursed with not having a compact disc player in my vehicle, or satellite radio. I do have an iPod radio thing, but thats a pain in the ass to set up for daily commutes. So I have no choice but to listen to the radio. The radio that is pumped into my car 24 hours a day, seven days a week for FREE! Well you get what you pay for.

But lets cut to the chase. Saskatoon radio is airwave vomit. If they held a competition to find the most annoying and socially retarded people in the country, they'd find Rob, Shawna and Ramblin' Dave. What kind of radio name is "Ramblin' Dave"? Might as well have picked 'Babblin' Bill' or 'Retard Russ'. Anyway, its not enough that I have to listen to the shitty light rock and teenage girl pop on my morning commute every day but those damned ass clowns keep interrupting my few moments of peace during KC's 'Since U Been Gone'. I don't fuckin' care how many pairs of shoes Shawna Foster or indeed, the entire city of Saskatoon has in their closet. I know Shawna's a douchebag regardless of the fact that she owns 50 pair. And Ramblin' Dave.. fyi... you don't know it all and if you want to end each 'Random Ramble' with a 'tip' make sure its a real fuckin tip. Advice usually ends with you suggesting something, not just crapping out of your disgusting mouth.
Ramblin' Dave definitely has a 'face for radio'
And onto Rock 102. I'm sorry, but you need to play rock music to qualify to be a rock station. That means no Avril Lavigne. She has her place, now learn yours. Also, who the hell named someone Gregger? or Gregor or whatever? Call yourself Greg because you effin' irritate me. Further, where is this 'Cast of Thousands' that you claim to have each and every morning? I'd like to hear what they have to say instead of your tired old stories day after friggin day. I almost feel that calling them radio 'personalities' is a fib.... and I'm no fibber.

The diarrhea icing on the shit cake that is Saskatoon's airwaves is 'Coffee Talk with Vic Dubois' Who is this guy and why is he being played every morning (and afternoon, as I found out today) with his monotone voice and lack of anything interesting to say? Everytime I hear his voice I want to honk my horn to drown him out, or swerve into oncoming traffic. No, actually, I'd rather hear Beyonce's 'Irreplacable' sung as a duet with Fran Drescher and Gilbert Gottfried... and just the super annoying 'to the left' part all the way from my house to work than hear another one of those GD Coffee Talks.

"To the left, to the left... To the left, to the left.. To the left, to the left... To the left, to the left.. To the left, to the left.."

Oh, I forgot those Saskatoon Job Shop commercials. Your joke about the irritated boss eating donuts was mildly amusing the first time you played it. Weird how the four hundred times you play it each day doesn't add to that amusing quality. I'd rather be unemployed than search for a job with you. Go to hell.
So, as you can see, Saskatoon radio is balls. I'm excited to listen to some Chris and Ballsy in Regina... those guys are a good time. Funny how Regina can have such kick ass radio, but Saskatoon can't manage to muster up one decent 'personality'.
Anyway, I'm spent. I'm Mike, I know it all and this has been 'I hate Saskatoon Radio' rant.

For someone who doesn't like to be judged based on sexual orientation, you are very quick to judge others. You should think about how you would like to be treated before putting others down. People won't give a shit about you until they are treated with dignity and respect. Remember to treat others as you would like to be treated. It is an old saying but still holds true in todays society.

Thank you 'Anonymous' but I wasn't all that quick to judge. I've been listening to that shit for the past 5 years and just now have said something. Acceptance of different cultures and types of diversity doesn't mean that I have to be a PC suckhole all the time.

And as far as not wanting to be judged on my sexual orientation, you're right, I don't. But if I'm some no talent ass clown on the radio, my sexual orientation doesn't matter, and then I'll gratefully be taken down a peg or two.

Further, I didn't judge anyone based on race, gender, orientation, religion or anything like that. I called them unfunny.

To compare the judgement of minorities to me calling these people talentless and unfunny is fucking retarded.

apparently someone doesn't know the difference between apples and oranges.

you know what else sucks? You not updating your blog!

.... and I like the PC suckhole part, that was golden!

...... also, anonymous comments are lame. If you can't stand behind what you've written then obviously there is some part of you that thinks your comments are unfounded. And besides, even if they were unfounded, it doesn't mean that a discussion couldn't ensue resulting in reason based arguments.

..... I think they call that a "debate"

I was refered to your blog by a listener.

Three thoughts for you (although, I am an ass clown so it seems unlikely that you will give them much consideration)...

(1) I am not anonynous when I sling it.

(2) There is an off button.

(3) You will have more impact with less vitriol.

Radio is a funny business. It's free to the user. But, I think that because it's music which tends to be very personal people get really worked up about it. If we are not to your taste, don't listen. One of the problems in a community the size of ours is that there are not enough radio stations to serve everyone's taste.

i agree with all your comments. it seems radio in saskatoon is very lame. it seems some stations can't afford new music so they play the same crap over and over again day after day after day. luckily i can listen to my own music in my car. good luck on a new cd player for your car buddy! you're going to need it.
