Boom boom boom and it rhymes with doom...


Tuesday's Gary Null Show came on at its appointed hour, high noon, and opened with John Lee Hooker singing "Boom, Boom, Boom" followed by the usual self-indulgence and marketing, but as the hour drew to a close, there came a twist: Mr. Null went from selling to seething quicker than you can say "Berthold is a bozo."

The "engineer" on duty was Michael Haskins, Null's trusty echo and supporter during many a pitch, but I would love to have seen the face of brother Haskins when the voice that came down from the pedestal pushed the miracle powders aside to deliver an ominous message—in essence, Pacifica and WBAI have been issued an ultimatum: Change as he tells you to or he will reveal everything and shock the "audience" beyond belief! The consequences he predicts are the stuff crime novels are made of.

Poor little Haskins, here he bares his ignorance every weekday morning as he publicly tries to convince himself that he is a "community" leader, an apple from the Garvey tree, the glue that keeps WBAI from falling apart. Then Saint Null blows it all away as he threatens to hasten and give a dramatic finale to the scam that pays his salary.

At first, I attributed the exceptionally bad quality of this particular show's archive version to Haskins' richly demonstrated technical ineptitude, but now I am not so certain that the over modulation isn't an infantile protest. After all that has been said and done, WBAI—repeatedly touted as New York's only free speech station—can ill afford to engage in overt censorship.

Is your curiosity aroused? If so, you can satisfy it by hearing the tirade in toto. Granted, this is not the first time Gary Null has threatened to sic his legal team on Pacifica and its chief culprits, but he now claims to have given them a definitive deadline that—if not met—will start the ball rolling on the very next day. What you think?

  1. In other words, "Do what I want and I will keep secret the evidence of criminal activity in my possession." I don't think Null realizes there are laws that REQUIRE you to report a crime, if you have knowledge of it. I believe Null has broken these laws on multiple occasions now, if he actually has any real evidence and not simply accusations and/or hearsay. Null is the one who may be facing jail time one day.

    From everything Null has said in his recent tirades, it sure reminds me of that Hufnagel(spelling?) woman a while back on Nalini's playground list. The timing and similarities just smell.

    Anyway. I think this all just shows how sleazy Null is, maybe even more so than the Pacifica scum, ultimately.

    Needless to say, I don't buy a word of his jive. It just sounds like he's making empty threats in order to get whatever it is he wants. If he can't get it, he's going to sue and bring their mutual playhouse down. Reminds me of a five year old having a tantrum and yelling, "If I can't have it, nobody can!" I think we have already given him more than enough time to show his hand.

    1. And later that same day (yesterday) he was back on WBAI, pitching away!

      Apropos that sort of hypocrisy. It sounds like Tony Bates might be back to stay. He had Kathy Davis as his "guest" on an infomercial this afternoon. THey, of course, are best known as the dynamic double helix team.

      Remember how Null challenged that miracle product? Yet he has given regular access to Kathy on his own online streamery. Hard to figure these people out.

    2. Null should lose the tough talk and either act or shut the fuck up – he sounds like American Foreign Policy.

    3. At this point, I would cast my vote for the former, which will of course kickstart the latter.

    4. I think his Bullshit Stuff is so thick that even he can't keep it straight anymore.

      As I said in the past, don't have any belief in him for even a moment because he may sometimes whistle a half true tune you like. He's full of Bullshit Stuff from top to bottom, and I think he is showing it more and more.

      Bates & Davis are the hocus pocus comedy duo. Both are seriously mentally unbalanced and should marry.

      Easy to figure them out. They are amoral scum who have no sense of any honesty. It's really no more complicated than a gang of con men and women out to get whatever they can for themselves. "Sociopaths" is another good word.

      "Say goodnight, Kathy..."

      "Robert Knight..."

    5. I find it somewhat amusing that Bates and Davis are pushing some money-making approach that someone named Chris Morris invented and claims to have become rich by so doing. He mentioned something like a million a day and Kathy said that was very important, not to say, powerful.

      Considering the fact that they are pitching this to listeners (real and imagined) and almost guaranteeing that it works, would it not be prudent for Reimers and his cronies (Haskins, kathy, Mitchel, et al) to be given a freebie upon promising to share the resulting wealth with WBAI? Just sayin' :)

    6. Memories of old TV extendomercials for no money down real estate courses hawked by Al Lowrey, Charlton Sheets, Tom Vu, etc. The kicker is anti-capitalist radio WBAI sinking to the level of hawking capitalism!

      These beg-a-thons get crazier one after the other. I wonder when they will be hawking prostitution for fun and profit or how to grow your own pot as premiums. You have to look at it from another angle, too. Does this crap sell? If so, that tells you a lot about The Remnants, doesn't it.

      I think in the end, this ever lower junk they sell only succeeds in filtering out more listeners. They're even worse than Alex Jones and his crap.

      I just turned WBAI to hear an old Null premium about how his bourgeois white listeners are going to buy his premium, leave the comfy city, move to the sticks and become survivalists, while making money at it. Seriously?

    7. “Both are seriously mentally unbalanced and should marry.”

      But what if they had children?


      “I wonder when they will be hawking prostitution for fun and profit.”

      They already do. You can buy a few hours with Amy for only $2,000.

    8. If Bates & Davis had children, it would make for the next great reality show. Or is that unreality show?

      Perish the thought of Amy as a prostitute. That's just mind and appendage numbing.

    1. With all the money he is scamming from his multicolored dried snot, he is the only one at WBAI who can afford to be a liberal.

    1. I was amused by that the first time I heard it, this particular commercial has been on several times and will. undoubtedly get several repeats before this marathon is over.
