    Morning Radio “zoo” shows should all be dropped. None of them are funny, none of them are worth listening to, and they are a HUGE part of why radio is all but a dead medium. If media is thought of as a newspaper comic strip page, morning zoo radio shows would be “Nancy”, “Cathy” and “Ziggy”. And Eric Zane would be Billy Keane from “Family Circus”.

    You know what I call the firing of one of these guys? Teasing. Radio needs to grow up if it doesn’t want to go the way of the telegraph.
