Fired Ralph Garman explains L.A. radio (live)

  • UPDATE: With lips firmly applied to Conway's b*tt, Ralph Garman came on the show to... Beg for a job? See if he could take Mark Thompson's place as a sidekick? Plead with the audience to write letters to Kevin & Bean at KROQ? To sell tickets to Hollywood Babble-On with Kevin Smith? No, he was just on to promote his own paid-access podcast, The Ralph Report. So if you miss your daily dose of sexist-racism and funny voices, check it out. Or not. So why was he fired from? New ownership was too cheap to pay him, he claims.

    We've only done a handful of stories on Los Angeles radio, starting with the demise of our beloved Loveline when Adam Corolla left Dr. Drew and was replaced by now fired Psycho Mike Catherwood.

    When celebrities get fired, however, and we know something about it, that's a good time to publish a piece. And readers' responses, in terms of views more than comments, have been spectacular.

    Who can understand the radio industry so close to Hollywood? Not us.

    But fired veteran comedian Ralph Garman is about to explain his unceremonious dismissal from the L.A. morning zoo "Kevin & Bean Show" (now featuring Allie MacKay) over at KROQ 106.7 FM.

    He may also shine some light on the firing of his friend and fellow comedian Catherwood from Dr. Drew's AM radio talkshow "Midday Live" ( or the previous sacking of sports and weather gal and part time DJ Lisa May now on the new and improved Frosty Heidi and Frank Show. 

    I have a podcast now, same thing
    The lummoxes over at Alt 97 have little to recommend them except the ratings they claim and two funny bits "Craigslist Freak of the Week" and "Redneck News." Otherwise, they're as unlistenable as all the hits and metro talk on KISS FM. There is always our favorite station, Pacifica/ (90.7 FM) and the increasingly corporate SCPR/NPR affiliate

    What's the news? Fired, fat, funnyman Ralph Garman is scheduled to appear on the very funny Tim Conway Jr. Show on KFI AM (, the local Coast to Coast outlet 10:00 PM-5:00 AM).
