Re: Geri Jarvis has passed away

Jarvis and her husband Dave Jagger hosted “The Dave and Geri Morning Show” for many years on WLHT 95.7 FM. After their departure from W-Lite, Dave and Geri started their own podcast. Actually I think after they left WLHT, Dave and Geri ended up in mornings at 105.3 HOT FM for a short time, then the...

Re: I want to compliment someone who doesn't receive nearly enough kudos on here...

I just talked to Henry at John Arguello’s funeral visitation a few weeks ago. He’s working a part time schedule at WOOD now. Henry has been at WOOD since 1970. Is there anyone else in TV as an on air news talent with similar longevity at one station?

The Village Inn on 44th Street is still there. Unfortunately, Mr. Fable's is long gone. I could go for a Mr. Fab and onion rings right now.

Anyone remember the Reptile House?
I never went there, but I certainly do remember it. Didn't they have a water main break that flooded the place?

Re: Looks like the Orbit Room is finally toast; share your memories here!

I saw Jackyl there. That night, Jesse James Dupree carved the word "Orbit" into the top of a wooden stool during "The Lumberjack."

I also saw Mustard Plug open for Weird Al Yankovic there.

Prior to Orbit Room, it was Club Eastbrook. Prior to that, it was a movie theater.

Re: Is Hillary Toast?

The New York Times is doing some very serious backtracking from their original story and have essentially admitted that Hillary did nothing illegal. Media Matters has been slamming the NYT for sloppy journalism.

Do I want her to be the candidate? Hell no! She's a corporatist.

Re: The Affordable Internet Act?

Of course JackOff FM has nothing nice to ever say about the President. Considering the Dow Jones is hovering around 18,000, that makes Obama a pretty fucking terrible socialist.

Re: I Thought Elections Have Consequences?

Two million more people voted Democratic yet we have a regressive majority in both houses of Congress. That just proves one thing: gerrymandering works.
