I didn't do nuthin. I quit my job of 18 years for no reason, or maybe I was paid to go away.
 Ralph Garman is a fired DJ and cut rate actor with a bit part in Seth Macfarlane's Ted.
Topics discussed on today's show (Dec. 4, 2017): National Cookie Day, [a bombshell about recently fired Ralph Garman and an invitation to come on FHF], Trumps 4 Food Groups, Oreo Sleeve, Santa's Favorite Cookie, Frosty and Erik Movie Date, Jim and Andy, Sending People To Space, Mr. Skin calls into the show with the Top 10 Nude Scenes from 2017 [male and female], Doing Nude Scenes, Ikea Sculpture, Gentlemen Sausage, Studio Session with Christian James Hand with today's song: Van Halen "Hot For Teacher," and Apologies. Frosty, Heidi & Frank is live every weekday from 5:30-9:30 am PT.

Today on the "Frosty Heidi & Frank Show" on KLOS (95.5 FM), between about 7:30 and 8:30 or so, traffic reporter news gal Lisa May dropped the first bomb (will it be the last?), recounting a horrifying tale of how Ralph Garman pulled off his trousers and walked in to do his Hollywood reporting naked in the workplace. Was he joking with Mr. Happy exposed to female and other colleagues sexually harassed in the hostile work environment he created?

Yes, apparently he was, or in any case, people laughed. It was a different time back then, a more accepting climate for sexism, gender discrimination, and boorish male behavior. Names were not named. Lisa May, however, made it perfectly clear whom she was referring to.

I'm so ashamed of what I did, whatever that is.
When Al Franken fondled women, when child molesting Republican Judge Roy Moore scoped out the local Orange Julius for more teens with daddy issues to hit on, when NPR senior executives tried to exploit introverted underlings, when accused rapists like James Toback, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Charlie Sheen (accused of child raping child actor Corey Haim) made Hollywood what it is today, or when Garrison Keillor brought shame to Lake Wobegon, and Charlie Rose tarnishes PBS's reputation that's one thing.

Garman is a sex addict who once had sex on air.
But this is unwelcome male full frontal nudity from Garman. And now he's fired. Was it allegations of sexist or racist comments creating a "hostile work environment" around Kevin Ryder and Company? (Gene "the 'Bean' in Kevin & Bean" Baxter lives and works from an island in Seattle and only phones in his part of the show).

Garman has a wife (shown below)
Former interns and "Miss Double December" (look it up) contestants have allegations to make if Ralph Garman's lawyer wants to contact us for their testimony. What are you hiding, KROQ? What are you keeping secret, Garman?

The truth will out...even if Kevin Smith and good Chris Hardwick (Nerdist) lay down a cover story to counter your silence and media blackout, no comment from the bigwigs who bought your station. "Let's not jump to conclusions," they say. Let's not. "He didn't do what you may think he did," they add. What's that? What do we think?
We're just giving you a hard time, Ralphy Boy. We think your sexism is funny, too, quite entertaining as a diversion to our monotonous drivetime commute. We don't mind.

Get off my back! My firing's nobody's business.
Say more shocking and offensive things. Take your clothes off, whip your dong out (the subject of the FHF Show today while Kevin & Bean take calls on illegal public pooping, like the Amazon delivery girl dropped on someone's lawn, someone with a surveillance camera), we don't have to work there to see it.

I have a wife and child to I quit.
We could change the dial and listen to KLOS or Alt98 or Big Boy's latest phone tap. No one has to believe us. They can hear Lisa for themselves and come to their own conclusions.

It is our conjecture -- because there is no doubt he committed heinous acts contributing to a "hostile work environment," all listeners heard that with their own ears -- is that the new cheapskate corporation that bought the show wants to avoid any potential litigation.

"Budget cuts," Kevin Smith? Yeah, right.
It is not about saving money from paying his meager salary. That's small potatoes that "budgetary issues" -- which is what one tweet suggested was at the root of his firing or reluctantly but voluntary "leaving the show" -- does not refer to.

It is how many millions Entercom (the station's new owner) would lose if allegations became public and a successful lawsuit ensued or a protracted failed one had to be litigated. Come clean, Garman. We don't want to have to show up at "Hollywood Babble-on" for a hard hitting interview, but we will. 
Rodney fired this summer, now Ralphy

Gwen Stefani with fired KROQ DJ Rodney
When Rodney Bingenheimer, 69, made his debut as a DJ on KROQ (106.7 FM) in the summer of 1976, playing the music he loved no matter how offbeat or obscure, he opened every show with his unofficial theme song... [But] earlier this week, Bingenheimer says KROQ management called him to a meeting where he was told [he was fired and] his long-running show, “Rodney on the ROQ,” was over. His farewell broadcast will air from 12:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. on Monday, June 5, 2017... More
