After listening to The Woody & Rizzuto Show on Wednesday morning in hopes of gathering a little info for the alleged interview Woody said he would do (more on this later) I came away feeling the show to be hokey & unimaginative. In other words, perfect for the 50th rated market in the U.S. While I did like Rizzuto I found that the chemistry between the two wasn’t there. Often times when a host is not good enough to carry a show on his own, like Jeff is obviously not good enough to, they will pair him with a girl or someone who is appealing to the audience more than just two frat guys talking about reality shows that involve fat chicks and almost crying.
There was a ton of music played & frankly it was just boring. Now, I’m sure the show will get better, cause the only way it could get worse is if Ravey showed up & took up half of the studio with her largess. Here’s the thing, though, if they can’t attract listeners now then how will they in the future. Is Woody really in this thing for the long haul or is he still preoccupied with Live 105? He refuses to keep his word & be interviewed though I have tried numerous times to contact him. It seems that while he enjoys deriding his former station he can not bring himself to keep his word (wouldn’t be the first time Woody has lied, for instance ratting yours truly out to management for playing a song off the list then denying he said anything when Spud told me he did & telling management that he felt Leanne was feeding me stories when in actuality it was his former board op Brian among others) & tell what truly happened over at Live 105 to those willing to listen. It seems that while there were those who went to bat for Woody when he was surreptitiously fired, for what seemed to be the most trivial of reasons (though it has never been clarified) he insists on being the same ungrateful miscreant he once was at Live 105 by lying & obfuscating his intentions.
While Woody buries himself in his misdeeds where will those people be when he is let go from this job as he was in Chicago, Pittsburgh, San Francisco & St. Louis the first time. It seems Woody did not remember the Golden Rule of Radio & that is “Be kind to people on the way up…..because you’ll meet them again on the way down.” After being in the #4 market in the country Woody finds himself living in his In-Laws home, without his so-called best friends Ravey & Tony, with a new child & in a sub-par market & he has the audacity to blow people off? It’ll be a much harder fall this time time down, Jeff. Enjoy it while it lasts. Here’s a tip: take some night classes at the local community college, learn a trade, maybe you could become a welder. Welder’s make good money.
