And so it goes...


Well, well, well - quite the week, eh? Alas, the time has come to say goodbye to the airwaves yet again; so is the cycle of radio. I have enjoyed my time on the air with the greatest co-workers I could ever have - it was always a fantastic way to start the day chatting with my friends in the morning. It was an honor and a privilege to work with Rick, Tim, and Greg, along with the countless other people whose contributions made it possible for it to be the best. show. ever. Thanks for your support and love, everyone, and I'll catch ya on the flipside.

Yes, I just wrote flipside.

Well, you won't have to get up at 3 AM Monday. I used to love listening to radio programs, but yours was one of the last that was worth listening to. Radio sucks these days. Hang in there.

I am bummed beyond comprehension

Sara said...

cripes! I've listened to the show since I moved to Oregon in '99. When you, Tim and Rick are back yet again, I'll be waiting for you.

Thank you guys for having put on such a spectacular and intelligent program. You've kept me company on my two-hour commute every day now for quite some time, and my days have always started off awesome after listening to your show. I'm looking forward to seeing where you guys go from here, and I'll be standing by for your return.

I'm so upset! :-(
You will be truly missed, and I can guarantee that wherever you end up you will have a ton of people waiting to hear you again.

The Rick Emerson show made each and every day wonderful, I still can't believe that I can't tune in to hear it.

Take care, I'm sure u'll be back soon :-)

I guess this is how it is in the radio business. PLEASE find a new home and one that isn't mostly before I get up in the morning. Podcasts are okay except I can't send you guys some info via email that'll be read on the air.

Sad! How will I drown out all my coworkers all morning now??
You will be missed.

I don't even know what I'm going to do with my life without this show. I listen while I'm on the computer, when I go to the gym, when I'm driving, when I'm walking around town. I haven't missed a single minute of the show in years. Hopefully you guys come back, not on a rock station preferably. I could not listen live. Too much bad music. Good luck.

Joe said...

Thanks for all of the excellent entertainment! I'll be keeping my eyes open for your return - Godspeed :p

Amazing. Just amazing. Working with you guys a few years back was one of the highlights of my time with KUFO and KCMD (yes KCMD.)

We didn't make a ton of money (even though we had Allen and Halama)... Never had the highest ratings (but threw some awesome parties i.e. Leykis at Barracuda), but one thing's for sure, It was a show & product like nothing else available. It was, shall we say, perfect. Perfect for us that followed it.

Like finishing a good book, I fold the cover, set the novel on the mantle behind me, rock gently in my chair, dim the lamp to my right, slowly fold my arms in my lap and with one deep breath, the words gently float out of my mouth, "radio's finally passed away. May radio rest in peace..."

You'll all be missed. I look forward to hearing your voices again somewhere soon.

Come back as soon as possible!

Greg said...

You Rick and Tim should do an Outlook Portland on the future of Portland radio :)

Though I wasn't real happy with the KUFO time slot and the more music / less Rick, Sarah and Tim format was not what your listeners tune in for, I was happy they rehired Tim and kept you on the air, however I'm pretty sure I saw the writing on the wall.

You are resilient, you will bounce back and we'll all be waiting for you when you do.

First Leykis leaves the air and now this? Not good. I hope you can come back to the airwaves soon. :(

You will be missed - Anything we can do to help you get back on the air?

Jeff Rader said...

KUFO had some really great programming for a while - an intelligent morning show, an afternoon show with two guys who were extremely knowledgeable about music and movies. I guess it was just a matter of time before the station decided to go back to that shock jock racist Marconi type BS again. I hear the new morning show guy is best known for making crank calls with an Asian accent...

Good luck to you guys, I hope you'll be back on the air sometime soon.
