Miffed in the AM, miffed at noon....
As one has come to expect when General Manager, Berthold Reimers, surfaces to issue a decision or memo, his recent note to the staff (see below) and the attached pre-emption schedule did not make much sense.
We still can't be sure whether this do-nothing GM is really as dense as he appears to be or if he is deliberately drilling additional holes in the tub we call WBAI, but there is no rhyme nor reason for his directives.
Even the dunce at dawn, little Mikie Haskins, expressed (as best he could) his displeasure with being replaced by an infomercial. He couldn't contain his anger at the impending pre-emption last Tuesday when he interrupted his somewhat dizzy co-host, Pam Brown, and bitched as she pitched. A less than wonderful e-mail note from a dissatisfied listener had him looking for the "delete" button. Delusional as to the quality of his own show and size of his audience, Haskins has hissy fits whenever someone can't see the emperor's clothes. Hear it for yourself.
And here is Gary Null's more articulate response.
