    I listened through about 4 songs and a commercial and never did hear him say anything. typical Clear Channel station, when they do hire talent they don’t let them say anything.

    Steve’s first show ended with a minute talk – calling it his ‘virgin voyage’ on the station,

    sounding ‘tracked’ over the intro to Eagles ‘Hotel California’

    The volume on this was also ‘low’; makes one wonder…

    All Access updated from previous posted story above, this:

    Back at KMPS, the search will be on for BECKY’s replacement by Market Manager KEVIN McCARTHY. McCARTHY is soliciting packages at kevin.p.mccarthy@cbsradio.com for this EOE post.

    Until a replacement is found KMPS will be programmed by CAREY CURELOP. CAREY is also PD for sister stations Adult Hits KJAQ (96.5 JACK FM), Classic Rocker KZOK, and Talker KPTK.

    “We’re glad you’re free AMANDA and look forward to welcoming you home!” PD MAYNARD said. “We believed in you all along, so much so, that we would like to extend an offer of $10,000 to you to come host our morning show for one week with BROOKE & JUBAL in the morning! We would all love to hear what you have to say and maybe help a little with the legal bills. Once again, welcome home!”

    Something is brewing in THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST as CLEAR CHANNEL Gen X KSGX/SEATTLE has been replaced by “FREDDY 104.9″ — a ghoulishly good HALLOWEEN format. OM JOHN”PEAKE-a-boo!” is staying mummy… for now.

    Given all the ghoulish ax-cutting that’s been going on at Clear Channel lately, this kind of stunting, I’m gonna guess, means a format change at KSGX tonight…and some personnel changes too. Best, M. 8)

    PS: Drive carefully tonight, BTW…sunset in Portland is at 6pm. :mrgreen:

    Danny Partridge (Bonaduce) to do mornings at KZOK. It’s Halloween, not April Fools btw.

    From Radio-Info:

    Danny Bonaduce’s next morning gig for CBS: classic rock KZOK, Seattle

    Bonaduce recently finished a run at Philadelphia’s rock WYSP (94.1), as it became a simulcast of sports WIP (610). Now the Seattle-Board speculation here at Radio-Info.com turns into a confirmation from CBS Radio: Bonaduce will take over mornings at KZOK (102.5) starting November 14. His airshift? 5:45am to 9am. Coming to Seattle along with Danny is two-year co-host Sarah, as news director.
