Rover and the other Assholes

30 Nov


I love WMMS, a Cleveland rock station.  I love the music, and I love the Alan Cox Show in the afternoons.  I love Chadley and Erika Lauren and Alan Cox.

But WMMS needs to rethink its morning show–Rover’s Morning Glory.  I can’t EFFING stand them.  Here’s why:

They’re morons.  I’m sure of it, because I can listen to them have a conversation on air, and then I can listen to them fight about how none of them just understood what the others were saying.  If Rover says he likes the color red, then one of the other morons will undoubtedly say, “You don’t like red. You said you didn’t like red!”  And it will turn into a two hour fight that’s almost as fun as watching two one-legged, one-armed squirrels fight for an acorn.  It’s just pathetic and sad.

Second reason:  Duji.  This stupid bitch puts on a Cleveland accent like no one I’ve ever heard before.  Plus, she’s also a moron.  And I if I have to hear about her stupid happy trail and lower back hair one more time, I might literally go down to the station to punch her.  She’s whiny, never has anything intelligent to say, and is probably a pedophile.  It’s no wonder she’s alone.

Apparently Duji and Rover dated in the past, and I have to say that I think they deserve each other.  I feel bad for Duji’s kid.  No kid should have to grow up like that with parents/step-parents who probably end up licking each other’s stubble every night.

But what started this rant?  LOTS–it’s been building.  But this is what tipped me over the edge.

We’ve all heard about the incredible kindness of a NYC police officer who bought a homeless man some boots.

So on Rover this morning, they begin discussing this, and Rover immediately goes into a rant about how it’s staged.  Really?  My big problem is this:  Can we not just appreciate an act of kindness without wondering where it came from?  Without believing there are ulterior motives?  Without judging the one who’s doing the nice thing for someone else?  

Apparently not.  Because Rover wanted to know if this cop had anything better to do than to buy this guy shoes.  No, asshole.  He’s doing the best thing he could have possibly done at that moment in time.

Rover wanted to know why the homeless man is in front of the shoe store already.  He said, “It’s not like the cop had to go out of his way to get these shoes.  He didn’t really do anything.”  Oh really, Rover?  So what if the man was sitting in front of a shoe store.  The cop still went into the store and spent $75 on shoes for him.  And how often have you gone out of your way to buy a homeless person something?

Awful convenient, you say, huh Rover?  You think that the man was sitting there waiting for someone to buy him shoes?  Come on!  Quit being a dick.  And even if he was, he wasn’t asking for it!  Maybe he was hoping, PRAYING for the kindness of a stranger like this cop.

And Rover says, “It has to be staged.  I mean, come on–to have a tourist there ready to take a shot?”  A little fishy if you ask Rover.  Fuck you, Rover.  It’s New York City. There are tourists everywhere, and they all have cameras and they all have smart phones and everyone takes pictures of everything.  Thank God there was someone there to capture it, to restore our faith in humanity.  Get over yourself.

Come on, WMMS.  Get rid of Rover.  You could really do so much better than this League of Extraordinarily Horrible Radio DJs…and Extraordinarily Moronic people.  I can think of about 50 people who would agree with me and help you find a better morning show.

Hey all, feel free to forward this to WMMS.  I’m going to.

    The whole show is one big lie. It is an advertising sellout. Period.

    Putting aside all emotions, the show still must go. Actually other shows need to go as well.

    I think the show perpetuates a style of immorality and criminality that when people embrace, will ultimately contribute to Clevelands’ crime and dwindling economy. The show is cancer to Cleveland. I wish the Cleveland mayor could block the RoverFest ticket.

    How can we respect these people when they always argue and bicker, always make careless and poor decisions, and promote immorallity and criminal behavior? It seems that a show with this type of content only attracts moronic and ignorant people. Is this how we want Cleveland to be represented? Clevelands’ economic development will never flourish intil we take out all of the trash and replace it with class.

    We need classier shows that can attract better quality people to the area and promote a better image of Cleveland.

    PS- about helping the homeless. Remember Rovers’ skit, “Homeless Hummers” from a fews ago before his short stint in Chicago?

    Rover made his own “style and spin” about Homeless Bill, and then added it to his show. How much of what he made from that went back to Homeless Bill?! It looks like Rover helped himself with the misfortunes of Homeless Bill.

      Hi Frank,

      I agree with everything you’re saying. It’s sickening. Rover is exactly what’s wrong with Cleveland and the people in it. If you want quality people, you have to offer quality entertainment. If I were passing through Cleveland instead of living here, and I happened to catch Rover on the radio, I know that my first reaction would be, “This is trash.” And I would immediately judge the town based on this.

      I do not recall Homeless Bill, but I haven’t been here for very long. Frankly, the whole thing sickens me.

      Thanks for your comments–it’s good to know someone else out there feels the same.

    Hello Erica, thank you.

    Now that I think about it, we can not totally blame the radio show. WMMS radio hired them. So it is obvious that WMMS carries a certain “air” and agenda.

    So what should be done is a complete evaluation and reorganization with the economy of the area and it’s people in mind; not the pockets of WMMS radio and it’s cronies. This should apply to all radio stations in the Cleveland area. The radio show was on another radio station in Cleveland before they rolled into WMMS. I’m sure the city leaders would be more than happy to assist the radio station executives move in a good direction to facilitate economic growth. This economic growth should move in the direction of high technology, higher education jobs.

    I listened to WMMS in the mornings back in the 1970’s and the 1980’s. That is when The Buzzard really rocked. So did Cleveland. No more today. Ashame. It is ashame that the desire for money and power always prevail with people.

    PS- Just today WEWS-TV aired some information about the most miserable states to live in. I think they said Ohio ranked sixth in the nation. I wonder where Cleveland ranks for the most miserable city to live in? Oh by the way, welcome to Cleveland anway, :-).
