Here in the Washington DC area, it’s just been announced that Los Angeles DJ Rick Dees will take over the morning shift on one of the DC FM stations (106.7? I haven’t lived here long enough to be certain) beginning this coming Monday, January 29.
Supposedly the show will be live :rolleyes:, despite the fact that LA is… Oh, three hours behind us! The station’s general manager was on a rival station this past week (the hosts called him up, the ballsy bastards!) but wouldn’t give any information about how this would be accomplished. The show’s hosts speculated that the show would be delayed until the final hour, which would be carried live. Or something like that.
Anyway, just curious - does anyone out there listen to this guy? Ok, that’s a rhetorical question. Obviously someone is, or he wouldn’t still be on the air. But for those of you who are in the LA area…
Do you like Rick Dees? Do you find him entertaining or just annoying?
What kind of a show can we Washingtonians expect from Mr. Dees?
Do you think the show Dees presents now in LA will play well in DC? I mean, we are talking about two wildly different cities, aren’t we?
I haven’t heard one show he’s done, but the local DJs here don’t seem to hold him in high regard. What’s your take?
