    in the mean time

    This was put up last year, looks like around the time Dave sang with the Foo Fighters. Not the whole radio show, but from the 8th of March 2006.

    Fixed now - there is a story behind this episode I can't remember. Something like it wasn't put up by CBS on their website?

    Twona may remember...

    March 8th was the "lost" Roth Radio show. The one day I didn't record it live...someone contacted us at DDLR and provided the recording.

    Dave says he spent $40,000 of his own money on new microphones for the radio studio.

    Funny claims the program director is on his ass and tha within a week the lawyers will be involved. He claiming they want him to do a Stern show and he ain't going there.

    Holy shit... he's bashing Chernoff left and right now.


    Post By: Mr Walker on March 08, 2006, 10:36:14 AM
    I wonder if this is their hidden agenda.
    Stern built his career on wars with managment... maybe they think it will work for Dave.
    Of course it won't, because managment ain't that bright over there.

    That was my original thought. He keeps repeating the same stuff. It kind of sounds forced to me.

    Ted N has been and always will be a great interview.

    Dave does not do as good a job of busting on Tom as Stern. Making Tom C sound stupid has been done to death.


    Post By: ZahZoo on March 08, 2006, 11:13:05 AM
    The next show is talking about Dave and his comments today. They are being supportive saying it's Free-FM and they shouldn't be talking "programing". Dave's a different deal from Stern and they should let the ratings do the talking.


    Post By: damngoodtimes on March 08, 2006, 11:29:52 PM
    The podcasts for today aren't up yet. I don't recall it taking until this late in the day before.

    coincidence?


    Post By: Seshmeister on March 08, 2006, 11:40:56 PM
    I don't think they will go up.

    This sthick is starting to sound staged. Kidd Chris was saying the same shit today.


    Post By: jabbo on March 09, 2006, 03:09:55 AM
    did they post podcasts of the full show? I know the freefm website has the snippets, but we've been getting the full show here. I did not see it.


    Post By: Seshmeister on March 09, 2006, 08:59:59 AM
    Nope. The station pulled them because Roth was criticising them on the air yesterday.

    From hearing some of todays show I don't think it will be put up either.


    Post By: jabbo on March 09, 2006, 12:02:15 PM
    That sucks. Living in Michigan, we don't get Dave's show, so the podcasts are cool

    Roth airs wrath after bosses' Stern lecture

    By DAVID HINCKLEY
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

    (http://www.nydailynews.com/ips_rich_...vidleeroth.JPG)

    WFNY jock David Lee Roth called his bosses, among other things, 'beige baby-food sissies.'

    Morning host David Lee Roth of WFNY (92.3 FM) spent four hours yesterday telling his bosses where they could stick their ideas for improving his low-rated show.

    "They want me to copy Howard [Stern]," Roth said. "But I refuse to regiment this show. ... I told them I would quit if they will not let me do what I was hired to do, which is create something unique."

    He referred to station manager Tom Chiusano and programming vice president Mark Chernoff, who met with him Tuesday, in terms that included "social retards," "beige baby-food sissies," "stooge" and "an ugly little dysfunctional worm."

    He said they told him he should appeal to "a 35-year-old white male who likes Lynyrd Skynyrd" and asked him to stop using "foreign" and "ethnic" music for soundbeds.

    He called that notion "racist," saying, "This show isn't designed for a demographic. It's for everyone."

    This was hardly the first time Chiusano and Chernoff, who have worked for years with Stern and Don Imus, have been used as punching bags by their air talent.

    "We are involved with all of our talent in working on their programs," a CBS Radio spokeswoman said.

    The question is whether they will take as much from a fledgling host as they have from veterans earning millions of dollars for the company.

    Officials at WFNY's parent, CBS, privately expressed concern with some of Roth's remarks.

    Roth said he was told he will soon have a female newscaster who will read stories he can comment on.

    "That's Robin Quivers," he said. "But there's only one Robin Quivers. Just like there's only one Howard and only one David Lee Roth."

    He conceded that for his first four weeks, during which time his ratings took a steep plunge from Stern's levels, "I was like a fish flopping around at the end of a stick."

    But he said he's a quick study and quoted Stern's comment to Sean Hannity on The Fox News Channel that a new show can't be judged for "15-20 months."

    "Howard took his old audience," said Roth. "We're after a new one."

    Ironically, Roth's rebellious rage yesterday drew on the same technique Stern has used for years: vilifying the boss as a means of bonding with every listener who has ever thought his or her own boss is an ugly little dysfunctional worm.

    At the end of the show, Roth said, "I hope I'll be back tomorrow."

    From the looks of this board, not many are listining any more.

    Please listen to the podcasts later - good shit! Seems Diamond had a mtg. (w/the 'suits'/attnys.) y-day a/noon and they told him to be 'more white', fuck the overseas audience, cut-back on the music, play to the 35-y.o. male demo. and other stuff too numerous to ment.... He claimed he threatened to quit.

    DO listen! I think Dave'll make it! YEAH! :spin: Good radio! He's defying them, playing 'black' music, etc...

    Oh fuck yeah I can! I can still feel the hate running through my veins!!

    Apparently, Roth was in a board meeting with Chiusano, Chernoff, and the rest of the dumbfucks at CBS, and came at him whining about his ratings, how he's not being 'white enough', how he should behave, what role his staff should play, how he should play stuff like Lynyrd Skynyrd instead of Mother's Finest and everything else you've been hearing on the loops. They told him he should appeal to the 35-year-old male demographic and that everyone else was pretty much irrelevant.
    They basically asked him to dance. This was an attempt to homogenize RothRadio, and today Dave pulled no punches as far as explaining just how he felt about it. Everyone of them fucks at CBS were under Roths hammer today, and he didn't show any mercy.
    There were people in todays Listening Thread questioning whether or not this was forced, how it was fabricated....
    Let me clue everyone reading this on something...when a Jewish person threatens to quit his job, walk across the street and willing to accept the same job for half the money, it would be a good idea to pay attention and see that as genuine anger. This ain't WWE, it isn't a fucking movie, this is real life.

    I've never heard him go off with such venom as I did today, and I'm more of a fan of his than I was yesterday (if that's even possible). It was Dave in his "FUCK YOU, WE DO WHAT WE WANT" glory, and if this is his last show (at CBS) then that was one helluva way to go!

    Well that's all well and good but since Siruis don't do streaming or podcasts then yesterdays show will probably be the last one some of us will hear.

    it's funny that management wants Dave to be more like Stern, especially after Hollander did that big conference call and said you'd never hear fart jokes on CBS Radio again.


    Post By: DONNIEP on March 08, 2006, 08:52:17 PM
    The last 25 minutes was all I caught. If CBS doesn't cut him loose I'll be surprised. He might as well have pissed on the microphone.

    Anybody think Dave is gonna bend a little and give in some? I mean 4 mill is real money. I don't care if you got a few million in the bank, it's still REAL money.


    Post By: Seshmeister on March 08, 2006, 10:55:40 PM
    That and his team that have had to relocate.

    I never heard the show today but if a bunch of people who do it for a living tell you what you need to do to get ratings you take it under advisement. Maybe do some stuff and not other things.

    Roth has spent 20 years surrounded by yes men that's his fucking problem. Sounds like they were just trying to give him advise in how to get our demographic i.e. the mid 30s to mid 40s.

    They had already written off the 18-35 year olds that Stern used to get by talking about tits, farting and cocks. TO me that's a compromiise. His show obviously wasn't the finished article, half the people here didn't like it for fuck sake never mind normal people. His ego seems to think that he can rip into the management like Stern used to. Difference is that Stern was making them a ton of money.

    Dumb.

    Cheers!

    It is just common sense given the developments of the last two weeks that if Dave valued his job he would be kissing a little corporate ass, if he is even capable.

    Could conjuring up or exagerating drama with management been a calculated attempt at publicity? I missed the show as well.

    Like I said, all I caught was 20 or 30 minutes of the show. But in 2006 you don't show up for a gig, wing it for a couple weeks, get reeled in by the bosses and pitch a fit and that's that. I'm not saying Dave shouldn't be allowed to do what ever he wants to do. I just don't think he's gonna have his way with this one. If they are bringing in some consultants to polish the show I say he should take it and run with it. But then again I'm not a DJ. So what do I know?

    I have a huge amount of freedom in my work life owning my own company and whatnot but even then I occasionally have to bite my tongue.

    Roth needs to grow up and see the bigger picture.

    I'd also be pretty fucking surprised if Sirius offer him 2 million rather than 4 million.

    Cheers!

    Few things I got from the show...

    -Dave said he would probably be fired in 2 weeks
    -He's no longer allowed to play loops (which he defied)

    EDIT: I'm adding stuff as I remember it, lol.

    Thanks for the rundown. Especially b/c there are those of us, like myself, who can't listen to him in LA and it's only b/c of the full show downloads that we can stay current.

    Thanks for that.

    Few things I got from the show...

    -Dave said he would probably be fired in 2 weeks



    That long?

    Quote

    -He's no longer allowed to play loops (which he defied)


    They do get a bit repeditive. I was listening to Alice Coopers show recently which is a hit. Roth's chat is far more interesting than Alice but he plays rock music and people seem to prefer that.

    Quote

    -Dave states his contract gives him complete creative control


    Until the show doesn't work...

    Quote

    -They want Dave to cater to the 35 Lynard Skynard demographic


    I kind of see that as a positive thing. If CBS is aiming for the 35+ demographic then Roth has a chance. He did much better in that area for ratings than he did in the younger folk who completely disappeared.

    Quote

    -Women can call in, but don't gear the show to them in any capacity


    I smell a bit of spin there from Roth.

    Quote

    -I don't thing they want anything ethnic in the show whatsoever


    Is he ever going to steal listeners from the spanish speaking stations by coming out with a few lines of Spanish each day and a militant political attitude to everyone speaking only English? I doubt it. I also wonder how many black people are switching from the hip hop stations to listen to Roth because of Animal.

    Quote

    -Dave brought in virtually all of the guests the first 3 weeks


    That's true and a total fuck up by CBS

    Quote

    -Animal and Brian need to play a much more minor role


    I thought they were pretty minor.

    Quote

    -Dave is often unprepared


    He is totally. For a 4 hour show I think it's normal to prepare for 4 hours. Roth thinks he can just wing it. He never even watched the fucking Oscars for fuck sake. He's got a team of 9 people to give him info and half the time he doesn't seem to know what the fuck is going on. Last week he wanted to do 30 minutes on homeopathy but couldn't remember what it was called and had to ask people to call in to remind him. I did think he has got better recently with his interview prep but not stellar...

    Quote

    -Dave says the telephone number too much


    Never noticed

    Quote

    -Dave was criticized for having terrible ratings


    Which is why he needs to shut up at the moment.

    Quote

    -Dave applauded Howard several times for defending him


    Maybe Howard wants things to stay fucked up?

    Quote

    -Virtually all of the callers heavily supported Dave


    But when he was on vacation they weren't???


    -Dave became extremely belligerent towards his bosses near the end of the show
    -Dave insisted that people are listening to the types of music he's playing on the show
    -A female cohost will be added at the end of the week to create a Robin/Stern news banter
    -Dave is not allowed to promote the internet site

    Quote

    -Dave's entire staff had to relocate to NY (pissed that they are not allowed to have a role)


    I thought they all had apart from Animal?

    Thanks for this post. I'm sorry if I sound negative and I listen to 3 hours of the podcasts every day but Roth needs to get a grip and join the real world.

    If your singular vision isn't working then you need to take advice and modify it a bit.

    Or at least not scream like a child at the people who have invested a ton of money and their livelyhoods with you.

    Cheers!

    Nice response Seshmeister. I agree with a lot of what you said, but I also see where Dave is coming from.

    The problem is that CBS agreed to Dave's format and they are giving him no chance to prove himself. Dave is still experiencing Stern backlash. You have to give the sirus folks a chance to get sick of paying that silly monthly fee. Then they'll start getting some stern listeners back after about a year.

    What amazes me is that they had no clue how 'out there' Dave really is. I could have told them that Dave's humor can be very difficult to pick up on. He's definately not like the rest of the mindless drivel out there. That can be good and bad... It's not easy to wake up to Dave's show.

    Finally, not having any guests lined up is shocking. I mean, they had months to prepare. Blows my mind. Also, it appears nothing happened the week Dave had off... No training, no prep, no nothing. That should have been an interactive period where they settled these issues, not on the air like this. Fortunately Dave's show is much more interesting now that he has a nemesis.

    Finally, I don't agree with attacking your employers in a public forum, but it seems to be par for the course. Stern does it, opie and ant (loosers) did it, athletes do it, etc. The controversey sells, and who knows, maybe this whole thing has been fabricated. It's a sure fire way to get ratings. They say "Dave, do the show your way, but tell everyone you're breaking the law!" Now he's a Rebel Rock and Roll god again. Who knows. All I know is we'll all be listening tomorrow.

    The only thing on the offical blog today is Dave's interview with Nugent and his interview with Hank Williams III.


    Hank's new CD is awesome. "Straight To Hell"

    Someone had to have recorded this...

    As far as I can make out he went out of town and spent the week doing advanced helicopter training which got him 20 minutes of pretty uninteresting radio.

    I listen to the show at night or live over here at lunchtime both of which work much better than as a breakfast show.

    Maybe ultimately that would be the best option to move him to a later slot but as I understand it that would be lower paid and lower profile.

    As I said before the nemisis 'Us v. them' thing can obviosly work really well but only if you are in a position of some power rather than when you have a show which has ratings in freefall....then it just sounds like sour grapes.

    Cheers!

    I've been saying that too since the beginning--it's almost as painful to hear him throw in some hip-hop & Spanish lingo, as it was to hear him strain on the high notes in Black Light!

    Actually after hearing it all first hand today I do too.

    If what Roth is saying is true, and to be fair I've never caught him on a major lie, then he's in the right here.

    LOL - The DLR Band album was great for true Dave fans, but I can certainly see it not being embraced by others! "Black Light" was one of my faves on that one, and I'm going from memory here 'cause I haven't heard it in many years, but my recollection is that "King of the Hill" was my favorite from that one...

    Hmmm... kinda' has me thinking that maybe Dave and the 'suits' DID have a meeting during his forced-vacation, and created that nemesis.

    {edit} Listening now to the 3-9-06 (Thursday show, 2nd hr.) replay and Dave sounds so damned serious on his side of this "battle".

    Who knows. Somehow I really believe the show is salvageable. I think they'll cave to most of his demands, but they will succeed in making the show 'whiter'. Excepting the 'old-old' Stern broadcasts, there's never been a radio show worthy of waking up early.

    Must have been a slow news days. That couldn't have been much lamer if they tried.

    Interesting, I kind of figured there was an issue with retrieving a clean radio recording. Dave must have all the masters to the show, since the excerpt he posted on Vimeo last year was a damn good audio recording of that show.

    *edit: holy shit i'm now a "cocktard"! and here I was thinking I could make fun of whiny Tool fans by calling them Tooltards…
    Oh well, there's always the day some guy on the internet called Tool fans for annoying than Greatful Dead fans…*coughs

    Our commentary from DDLR.com 10 years ago was nice walk down memory lane... like seeing a bunch of old friends again.
