A message from Berthold Reimers
As you read this amazing message from the man who has been all but invisible for three years, please bear in mind that he has had ample opportunity to do something about the station's most abominable offerings. The fact is that he has done nothing to improve WBAI—instead, he has allowed the bills to accumulate and such total crap as the numerology program and Ifé's lightweight disc jockey show to be added. This is so contrary to some of the ideas he brings up here as his "vision," that one has to wonder if Berthold Reimers is all there, mentally. I really mean that—read the crap he puts forward here and think about his performance over the past three years, and where it now has put "our beloved station," as he so disingenuously puts it.
What the hell does this idiot mean when he states: "As you can see, I have been thinking a lot about programming and about WBAI's future and its impact on NYC and the world." ?
I, for one, can't see that, much less hear it. And why did he not mention any of this on Kathy Davis' Report to the Listener, a week ago? Was this "vision" of his delivered by one of Davis' homeless angels (remember that one?) this weekend? Did he overindulge on that miracle water?
Does he think pedestrian hiphop music and warmed-over, biased "news analysis" has an impact on the city and the world? The only impact all this nonsense and the station's dummied down conversion to black street rethoric has had is a mass listener exodus.
