DANNY AND MARK OFF AIR AT 96.5 THE BUZZ AND ALMOST NOBODY NOTICED!!!



Special thanks to KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY audiophile denizens for sending word of a local radio "reduction in force" via social media because everybody stopped listening to terrestrial radio 5 years ago.

The dilly . . .

DANNY AND MARK ARE OFF THE AIR AT THE BUZZ AND A FEW OF THEIR FANS QUESTION THE MOVE!!!

Sorry for the meanie post title . . . Here's a more supportive shout out:

"For those of you who care. 96.5 the Buzz just canned Danny Boi and Mark. Now there is nobody left from Afentra's Big Fat Morning Buzz . . . Needless to say, I deleted the station from my presets . . . I'm looking for new alternative and indie music stations. Right now I have 105.1 and 90.9. if you know of any others let me know!"

Political note . . .

THE MOVE IS MORE ABOUT RATINGS BUT IT'S WORTH NOTING 96.5 IS DECIDEDLY 'PROGRESSIVE' BUT STILL LOSING GROUND DESPITE THE BLUE WAVE!!!

Reality, there wasn't much of a chance for this duo without Afentra and this epoch in local radio is now history.

Still, it's worth throwing out there for our blog community who care to weigh in and all of the newsies who'll "report" it a few days from now.

I actually thought they had a shot. Danny is really talented and funny. Mark was a great sounding board. They need to think about a podcast.

^^^^ you are a kind soul and too nice for KC radio. It's getting rough out there and the vultures are definitely circling.

Lazlo. Afentra. All the DJs on the buzz were irritating, coarse and unlistenable.

KPR at 91.5 -- during the few hours per day when they play classical instead of lefty talk radio -- is the only civilized alternative on the radio.

Thanks,
Radish

Politics, like religion, don't belong in radio. Effedrah, dare both as left wing as it gets. Their styles and speech are pedestrian appealing to the lowest common denominator of prog. Danny boy was a lightweight in the same boat.

Someone meeds to curbstomp that slack jawed asshole Lazlo.

Found out Saturday, deleted the station on Sunday. They just keep playing the exact same songs every morning now anyway.

I love Hartzel, but I will for sure miss Danny and Mark's chemistry. Hopefully they can start a podcast with Afentra once their non-compete agreements are over.

If Danny boi is out of a job then he can team up with Gopher boi and be know as the Boi twins.

When will the Buzz wake up and realize that listeners want music and fun not political commentary?

^^I don't know, probably as soon as you wake up and realize nobody listens to terrestrial radio anymore loser.

There are people who still listen to the radio when baseball is in the offseason?

90.1 from 6am to 8am, 10am to 11am and 1pm to 6pm great variety of music with lefty chatter inbetween.

Get BTFO in the senate, still claim blue wave.

Anyway, 96.5 was always a generic and commercialized version of an alternative radio station...going back like 12-13 years. Hate to hear people losing their jobs but this soulless station was something that was wrong with the world. I'm so happy that girl sued and won $1 million or more off them

If I want to listen to an uninformed progressive on the radio, I can listen to Dana Wright on KMBZ.

Good. Danny and Afentra were annoying as shit. Glad they're gone. The only good show 96.5 has is Church of Lazlo.
