PETITION: KEEP BONADUCE ON L.A. RADIO!


We reported last month that Los Angeles radio personality Danny Bonaduce might be leaving his role on the execrable Adam Carolla Radio Show for an afternoon gig at WLUP radio in Chicago. Though reports last week state he’ll be staying with the Carolla show in LA, insiders tell us his future here is still up in the air (he could host the Chicago show from an LA studio, just as Jonathon Brandmeier once hosted KLSX's show from Chicago)-- and fans on the Carolla message board note that Carolla and his battered radio wife Teresa Strasser have openly marginalized Bonaduce even further lately.

At their request, we’ve started the following petition:

Dear CBS Radio bosses:

Please do not allow Danny Bonaduce to leave the Adam Carolla Radio Show and Los Angeles and take a job in Chicago!

Danny is the sole ray of light in an extended dark morning, and the one brighting shining hope for talk radio since Howard Stern left the business almost two years ago.

Danny's personal history and experience in Hollywood have only added to his character and personality. His ability to cut through radio artifice and speak straight from the heart about his personal troubles, from his addictions to failed marriage, not only inspire thousands of listeners but make for compelling, appointment radio (much more so than Carolla’s latest regurgitated “rant” about traffic signal lights).

Danny Bonaduce is a great radio personality who follows in the tradition— and combines the best-- of Jean Shepherd, Garrison Keillor, Michael Savage and Howard Stern himself. And, as his on-air treatment by Carolla indicates, he is more than ready to take over your KLSX morning radio slot on his own.

If the competition in Chicago is really so hard-up to fill a hosting slot, please offer Adam Carolla instead (and give Danny the KLSX morning slot). They can save transportation costs by letting Carolla do the show from a studio or his home in LA, as Jonathon Brandmeier used to do.

Also, please give Danny the Frosty Heidi and Frank slot. Now.

Sincerely,


______________

Get your facts right dude:

A) It's WLUP (there is no WLUC in Chicago)
B) He turned this down last Friday- way to stay current. (see link)

"We reported last month that Los Angeles radio personality Danny Bonaduce might be leaving his role on the execrable Adam Carolla Radio Show for an afternoon gig at WLUP, the CBS radio station in Chicago"

WLUP is an Emmis station, not a CBS station. How seriously is anyone going to take you if you don't get any of the details correct?

The CBS station in Chi-town is WCKG. The rumor that it may adopt the generic 'Fresh' format is now being talked down. Additionally, Dan Patrick signed on for his new national show to air on The Package, IIRC. That would put CBS' WCKG in a position to possibly utilize Danny, live and in the Windy City.

True, the Loop talks are supposedly over. Danny turned it down and station manager Marv Nyren acknowledged that to the press.

Anything can happen, DB could take the Emmis/Loop offer and surprise everyone -- or head back to the CBS affil. for a live shift.

Either way, any transfer in January would likely be based on internal jealousy and recent efforts to cut down his airtime. (That tactic can buy a failing host only so much time.)

Danny rocks.

Will definitely write Dan Mason and see what's ahead for Danny.

Truth? He should have a national show, and methinks Carolla knows it.

Adam's talk show bombed and his nice bosses are PAYing him to let the radio show bomb too. Suh-weet!

Check this link where Ace gets only 1 or 2 positive comments. The other 25 or 30 people point out why he's soooOOOoo bad-----

"Adam CaCaholla is a true genius"!Right...Not! I'd like to see proof of that! He had Judith Regan on his radio 'show', someone he disparaged for years,then gives her a 'softball'interview 'cuz she'd have ripped him a new arsehole. He said,'Oh she'd have clammed up if I got rough with her.' He would get shot down so fast by an intelligent woman like her. Probably no more University female type interviews for CaCaholla. 'Asskiss Rodeo'is for real on his show. Great interviews.Right!

If he didn't have his head up in Kimmel's lower intestine,he'd be locked in a blazing hot portapotty with a blue boy mag on some construction site.Genius his ass! Intelligence Quotient over 150?Yeah right!He talks over everyone!He says something funny about 4 times a year and has to try too hard the rest of the time.He is a real suck ass!

Here is what I wrote:

Dear CBS,

In regards to the KLSX morning Adam Carolla Show, I must say that Danny Bonaduce does not fit in. While Danny may have enjoyed sucess on the radio in other cities in different situations, this is not working. Fans of Adam Carolla recognize that Danny is everything he despises. He has no real comedic talent and he tells the same tired stories over and over. His tough guy act is very annoying. I think he makes his voice more gravely than it really is just to make himself sound tough. Please take some time to actually listen to the product you're putting on the air and don't just look at the numbers. Quality radio will succeed given time, but this is not quality radio. Adam Carolla, when surrounded with compatible people can produce quality radio, and he has the track record to prove it. Give him a chance to really make this show successful and remove Danny Bonaduce.

Sincerely,

I will definitely write to Dan Mason and demand that the no-talent attention whore is taken off the Adam Carolla Show. Give him his own show, put him in re-hab, take him out and shoot him, just stop him from ruining what once was and could still be the best morning show in the market.

I had no idea Teresa was Adam's wife. Why does that trip me out?

The most recent post on that site was over a year ago. Way to stay relevant.

@ 4:33: That site is current.

The only thing that's changed since then is Adam Carolla dropping OFF the Lycos search list. Completely. Not down a few spaces, the norm. Off into the vapors of defeat.

Being a witty drone is no guarantee for success.

He needs to be in a mental institution, not on radio. He is delusional about his life.
