I'm not sure if Rick still is their producer or not...
Rick moved on to Hot 97 to work with Miss Jones - he was the genius behind that "tsunami song" and got fired as a result. He then moved on to San Francisco, I believe - not sure what he's up to these days...
I had no idea he was behind that. Never heard the song, but who didn't hear about it? That's what I miss about O & A... the show that got everyone talking about it whether they heard it or not.
I think if anyone at K-ROCK had any sense of what would make their numbers higher, they'd bring Booker back to do mornings and have O & A back on in the afternoon drive.
Would this be the first time Booker did mornings since he co-hosted the AM drive show with gal pal Lynda Lopez on the ill-fated "Blink 102.7"?
First time back in NYC. He just got fired from being Q102's morning host in Philly, to make room for the Elvis Duran Show.
I never heard him on Q102, but heard him on K-Rock when he had his own show, which featured such bits as Danni doing the dirty weather. Jill the hot "intern" and others. To me it was finally the chance to hear Booker at his best.
Yes he did work at Z100 for a bit, but it just wasn't the right fit for him. His personality is a rock guy.
To me it might give me hope on terrestial radio if K-Rock were to bring him back on board. He had listeners who loved to call in, and were such a big part of his show. And after all, isn't that what radio is supposed to be all about... the listeners.
Or is it just all about the money? Personally I don't think O & A need XM. They don't need to be swearing to be funny. They have so much more talent than that.
Ok I'lll shut up before someone says... "Is that a train?"
