Dave Dahmer / Les Nessman

Post by sfpcc » Wed May 29, 2019 4:10 pm

Does Dave Dahmer at times remind anyone of Les Nessman? A couple of weeks ago I was listening to one of his "Dumb People In The News" stories, (I can't remember the details they all sound the same after awhile) and somehow I thought of Les Nessman doing one his "Farm Reports." Both seemed to exist in a surreal place of their own with not a lot of connection to the world around them, (to be fair people have said the same thing about me.) Does this make sense to anyone?

I'd take a Les Nessman news report over Dahmer any day of the week.

I'm not big on bashing everyone and everything all the time, but my God...I bet Dahmer is used for torture overseas.

Les sounded more intelligent on the air than Dahmer...

And the incredibly sad thing is that Dahmer is doing afternoon drive on a major market radio station...

Dave Dahmer got me to sync my phone to the bluetooth radio in the car I'm driving... I have not listened to FM since.

Is Dahmer this guys real name? Along with the voice, he should change the name. I keep thinking of that guy from Milwaukee who was a serial killer. J.P. McCarthy had to not use his real first name, Joe, for his entire career from WeeTAC on, and the notorious Joe McCarthy was just a politician. This guy's last namesake was a serial killer. Not many radio stations with personalities named Oswald either.

Giving DD credit where it's due: He inspired the greatest buzzboard post of all time, I wish I could find it and credit the OP.
Something to the effect of:

The sound of Dahmer laughing is the sound of thousands of radios tuning out.
Iconic :lol

J. P. McCarthy's full handle was Joseph Priestly McCarthy (I heard him reference it several times ) ,but I believe the nefarious demagogue Joseph McCarty was long gone,to quote Ernie,when J.P . re-settled in Detroit . (Then,of course,there was famous Yankees and Red Sox manager Joe McCarthy .)

Then,of course,there was the late Mississippi Civil Rights leader Vernon Dahmer ,who was killed Jan. 10,1966 when the KKK firebombed his home after Dahmer led a registration of African American voters .

McCarty's birthday gigs are the best - His wife feeds you cupcakes, while Jim grinds out amazing music.

He began using Jay McCarthy in 1956, as the first Overnight Top 40 Disk Jockey at WTAC 600, The Big Station. Joe McCarthy would be forgotten but he's still not, because anything people don't like politically is labelled "McCarthyism". McCarthy the Senator was NEVER FORGOTTEN.

Dave Dahmer is one of the main reasons that WCSX is no longer on my presets.
