    Some guys come off like that and once you tell them to cut the crap they laugh and become your best friend.

    As much as I like Joey Reynolds I was always afraid of meeting him for fear he would turn out to be a jerk. That would spoil the image.

    I can't take someone on the radio having a big ego seriously. I have done it and it's not brain surgery.

    I've often wondered if brain surgeons ever say, "C'mon, we can do this, it's not radio..." Where's that damn face smiley emoticon?!

    Which is what makes that attitude problem all the more incongruous. Or is that "in Congress"???

    Try asking in "Ask Radio-Info" and you'll get an answer. :-)

    "As much as I like Joey Reynolds I was always afraid of meeting him for fear he would turn out to be a jerk. That would spoil the image."

    I did meet him in, IIRC, 1979, when he dropped by WBEN. He was anything but a jerk--he was, in fact, the same personable, friendly guy you hear on his current national overnight show. Others who know him far better than I do say the same thing--the mature Joey Reynolds is the same guy both on and off air, and they like him.

    And there should be a good punch line to this one: what does a brain surgeon say to a rocket scientist?

    That's great to hear Bob. I guess I should have made the trip to WBZT in West Palm Beach when he was there and I was living in the area. I think that in addition to being funny he is often insightful. I don't go along with the shock jock title only because I don't recall him saying something offensive. He knows where the line is and doesn't cross it unlike some others.
