I wouldn’t think the station would need to do anything to force a contractor like Ron out. He’s not an employee.

Having a good, if underutilized, guest like Mark Wilson has to put Ron in a better mood. I’m imaging how he’ll be when a guest stuffs him.

On another matter, he said Lance Parrish will be there on Saturday? If I am not mistaken it's the same place he was at last Saturday which sounded packed. Lance is a great guy but I don't think he's going to be completely thrilled to have to sign a bunch of autographs and take pictures with a bunch of people at that remote unless he's getting some sort of compensation from Ron. We know the only way Ron can pay him is thru comping him a dinner from the joint and that won't be worth the hassle.

This video helps to explain Ron’s following:

When all is said and done, he makes good toast!

Who knows... a guy who was of supposed legendary status in Detroit talk radio with 50 years and not being able to use the studio for his show and relegated to doing remotes in restaurants in Warren or wherever is not exactly helping both of them to be a success.

At this point they either have to can his show or let him back in the studio. It's not benefitting anyone (Station, Ron, listeners) to have these live remotes that are such poor quality. If he did do something, then why allow him back on the air? I almost have the feeling that Ron might owe them money so this could be punishment. He did mention that he's going to reduce his show to 1 hour per day in February.

Probably a phone conversation like he had with Mark Wilson this week. I highly doubt he would have a guest physically there.

No he was saying this pizza joint in Hazel Park is right off of I-75 which is great for Lance. :lol He is planning on having him on his live remote.

I was wondering who your source was, Vic, for the heads-up about Ron’s return last weekend. Please spill the tea about what all went down from your friend’s perspective.

I’m reminded of when, some years ago, I spoke to a screener in exasperation at the utter untruths Ron was spewing. His screener’s despairing reaction? “Try working for the guy.”

That's all I know, except that my friend also engineered Cameron some years back at another station, perhaps WCAR.

So he just flat out quit after one week? Not shocked if so with how chaotic it sounded. With this new development, does this mean the return of Matt this weekend? Plot twists!

At this rate, will he even have a show this weekend?

Vic, can you find out what Ron’s demand for $10,000 was all about?

The mere possibility of a Ron and Matt reunion - in a dive bar setting, no less - leaves me positively giddy. These establishments better have beefed-up security.

Man, I just listened to the podcasts of the shows from this past weekend, and they were as bad as advertised, but strangely entertaining! What was really bizarre was that Luke sounded like one of those Google/Amazon electronic assistants, chiming in to prompt Ron when the usual suspects were calling! Luke’s “connection” or whatever was pretty quiet, so Ron was always like “Huh? Whadyousay, Luke?” Luke was also chiming in when there were “Twenty seconds left” in the hour and Ron missed that and his time-honored Edsel Ford story (which Mark Wilson was saying “I’ve heard this story already”!) got cut off...not to be continued at the top of the hour.
