Former ClearChannel Toledo radio boss Andy Stuart now Cumulus radio boss is bringing back the morning Breakfast Club. Beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, Mr. Schaffer will host a new, four-hour morning talk show on Cumulus Media’s WWWM-FM Star 105, along with former sidekicks Tricia Courtney Tischler and Suzie Moser. The only one missing is Fred Lefebvre who will be competing on the ClearChannel AM 1370. Looks like WSPD is the loser here!

Poor LEFEEBLE, now his employer is known as iHeartRadio and they're $20 BILLION in debt.

Read closely and you'll see the company is known as iHeartMedia. At least get the info you copy and paste correct a COWARD

I didn't cut and paste the name, LEFEEBLE. I decided to skip the morning cup of coffee. But sure, be a raging asshole or whatever it takes for you to feel great about working for a company that makes less money than their interest payments on their debt costs. Maybe they'll collapse and get bailed out by the government.

Maybe you should have the coffee aCOWARD, it appears you're a bit tense.

You're the one raging about a minor error today, LeFEEBLE. What's the matter, not getting any since the divorce? Angry that your employer sucks so much and can't afford to give you a raise? Oh I see, Michigan lost and you're angry and bitter over being a loser with a loser sportsball team or something.

This sentence is considered "a rage" by aCOWARD- "Read closely and you'll see the company is known as iHeartMedia. At least get the info you copy and paste correct a COWARD" Personally I consider both of his replies to be more rage like since he resorted to foul language, but that's just me.

Does that mean the woolfart and the lil coward will stop listening to every minute of Fred's show so they can spend the rest of their day looking for shit to copy and paste?

Denny might be returning, but Freddy gives your penny ante lives a purpose.

So Anonymouscoward--who is an Obama apologist--is criticizing a company that "makes less money than their interest payments on their debt costs." That's rich.

Fred's sphincter is twitching in anticipation of Denny's return. Too bad the naysayer has been has been left out of the party at money making Cumulus. I'm sure Denny, Suzie and Tricia are just tickled with cash at their new job prospects.

Why would fred be twitching?

Fred already has a successful show.

You know when Joan Rivers told Johnny Carson she had her own show they never talked to each other again. Fred, Deny and Trish are sounding good without you! Oh I almost forgot about little Suzie just like being home again. Thanks Andy Stuart! Same kind of show as WSPD but upbeat and with better quality of sound on FM 105.5 6 AM to 9 AM.

I seem to recall he spells his name with two "n"s. Do you ever post anything without at least one mistake? And it goes 'til 10a

Fred, how do you feel about Denny and the gang getting a show on 105?

Competition in all business is a good thing, that's something unionistas don't understand. It makes you work harder to provide a service people want, it creates a better wage without needing a union, it gives people a choice. I'm happy anytime someone wants to compete. That being said I compete with every station on air not just those owned by other companies, and not just those that are talk oriented. There's not one person out there that I wouldn't want listening to me. I am competing for the time they might spend with a paper, or a morning tv show, the internet, and other stations.
Unionistas have it easy, they show up, do a simple menial job, and get the same pay a more experienced harder worker might get. They get a raise just for managing to stay employed for the length of the contract. I could have spent my life in the factory too as some of my classmates did, but I took a different path.
Good luck to all my friends in radio, it's a tough business to be successful in, but my plan is to continue to be on air for a long time.
I'm sure mrignorant with his many years of radio experience will have something to say. It's funny he seems to think listening to the radio gives him insight into how it's run. Thank God that's not how doctors are created.

Oh how sensitive we are, is the ole sphincter acting up Fred? Too many years sedentary sitting on the ole gland shilling for dollars? Maybe the booty licking Billy, Galt and MikeyA have irritated the irascible gland and its giving his audience what is known as the Fredrick bump. Maybe I touched that sensitive spot after I reported that he was possibly slighted by the old Kiss FM regime. Who knows? Its been a bad year for the newly divorced Fred. He lost his house in April and is now probably living in a Prius down by the Maumee. http://www.hulu.com/watch/4183

He was asked a direct question and answered it.

That doesn't sound sensitive to me.

MikeyA

I listen to 105.5 whenever I need some Manilow or Newton-John to cheer me up ("Singin' to the world, it's time we let the spirit come in...").

"Fred's sphincter is twitching?"

Did you lick your lips when you typed that up wolfboy?

Ew....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

You, Billy, and Galt all chimed in to rush to LeFeeble's defense. Gee I wonder who really has an obsession with Fred's anatomy, could it be you three jock-sniffers? If you white-knight and defend Fred hard enough (ha ha), maybe he'll sleep with you?

I know right. Especially after fred was already raging.

LOL AC, you're posts are so weak. But go ahead and keep "raging" about "minor" spelling errors I already corrected.

MikeyA

"you're posts are so weak"

My are posts what?

Dumbass.

whiner

MikeyA

... come running to my defense.

Seriously, did Fred's ex-wife get jealous at the amount of attention he gets from you two?

Simmer down. I think you could use a little Manilow listening time on 105.5 ("You know I can't smile without you...").

It's interesting how Paul and Lil Coward are so prone to jump up and down and cry out to Chris about any posting that may be deemed as anti gay, then you both come out with all the homophobic slurs you can think of.

it's almost like you're both posting from the same closet. Either way, he's still a used up has been who may have been proper union stooge back in the day, but now he's just an old man with nothing more to do. And while he may be a has been, you Lil Coward are a never was and never will be. Funny thing is we all know that you know it.

Dude, take your projection issues and see a shrink, don't air them here for all to see.

While Im thinking about it Lil Coward - can you tell us what it's like?

What's it like dwelling all day long on what you hate? Waking up to think about the things you hate, spending the day dwelling on them, going to bed and biting that pillow pondering all the things you hate, and drifting off to a fitful sleep, dreaming about what you hate? What's that like?

You realize that spending all your time on what you hate means nothing will happen about what you care about, right?

Projection issues, Billy, stop projecting your issues and deal with them yourself.

like Billy's comment

Of course you like that comment, spending all your time on things you hate is part of your job and what makes your employer money. Frickin' DUH!

I read few posts on ToledoTalk today and one of particular interest had to do with the glaring differences between this and that site. They are immense. Posts there, now that they've weeded out trolls, are for the most part thoughtful discussions of facts and events. Here even the most mundane post can devolce into a discussion of my ex wife, where I live, how I feel, what I eat etc etc. Boring for the most part even for the biggest fan.
I realized the TT poster was right, and will take steps to remove myself from here so that I'm not the focus any longer. I don't have any expectation that the discourse will get any more civil but at least it won't be about me any longer and those of you left can focus on topics instead of personality.
Thanks Chris for keeping this site alive for so long, sorry it isn't at the level it could be.

Fred where will you get your talking points? You know that many of your best ideas come from the one and only SwampBubbles. To just give up and not compete in the one local site of open discussion is defeatist. You'll run away from any and all free and open discussion by having those that disagree blocked or deleted from the public sites. Just look at your Facebook accounts of you and your employer, no adversarial comments are allowed. Its like a damn Nike 1984 commercial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R706isyDrqI

Toledo Talk is just another example of the bland and mundane. The usual discussion is about how to make this or that or do you know a guy to do this or that. Nothing hard hitting for the rough and tumble real world. You can see ToledoTalk talks about SB but they shirk to participate, a sign of a weak constitution for real debate. Many of the eye opening posts have gone viral around the country. I hardly think that's the case at TT.

By threatening Chris with your tactic of self removal will not censure the one site that allow all to express themselves to the media circus that is now prevalent in America (and Toledo). Your lack of participation at TT hasn't hurt the pablum discussion at all! Some of us don't agree with your ideology and to not allow others to participate in our democracy is fascist rule. So throw your hissy-fit, threaten to leave and we will carry on. Maybe a real man like Denny will chime in to take your place.

So lets hear it for SwampBubbles! I give it a two thumbs up! Don't listen to the whiners, the naysayers, the depressants who can't control the discussion.

"and will take steps to remove myself from here so that I'm not the focus any longer. "

And with that, there will soon be a new obnoxious poster out here with another name. What'll this be 4? 5? 6?

And why would you still be vistiing sites you were removed from?

Yes I'm guilty I went over and "voyeured" ToledoTalk to see what poor abused Fred was talking about. I noticed just about ten posters were even in the "discussion" about how superior they are over SwampBubblers. I didn't see Fred chime in on any of the discussion and maybe that's why he's still considered TT active. Seems his attempts at promoting his lame show hits much resistance with the general Toledo public. I long gave up listening to Fred's show except when Dock is on the podcast. I do listen to the WSPD Saturday lineup but the weekday crap is nothing but unintelligent dogma.

Maybe if you wouldn't be an asshole, you wouldn't get asshole thrown right back at you. But that would require some effort on your part that you apparently don't want to put forth.

Paul from this thread: at 09:08 today in re TT:
"Posts there, now that they've weeded out trolls, are for the most part thoughtful discussions of facts and events." (Ironic as he's one of the trolls, along with Lil Coward, that was weeded out...)

Paul on this thread in re TT 4 hours later:
"Toledo Talk is just another example of the bland and mundane. The usual discussion is a about how to make this or that or do you know a guy to do this or that. Nothing hard hitting for the rough and tumble real world"

No wonder all he does is copy and paste, if left to his own he has no idea what his opinion is until it's given to him.

but wasn't it Fred that indicated about the weeding out of trolls, and the posts being thoughtful discussions?

I think if you look back at this thread you'll see Fred personally attacking me first. http://swampbubbles.com/blogs/mrindependent/20140920/dennis-schaffer-bac... We were having a discussion on how the radio wars will play out and ole Fredo pipes in with the personal attack. As a Independently minded soul I of course hit back with an in kind response. So I now hurt Fred's feelings and he's taking his toys to a safe environment. Boo Hoo!

WHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

"Fred personally attacking me first"

Wrong. You posted this before fred posted that. "Fred's sphincter is twitching in anticipation of Denny's return."

So stop your whining. You attacked fred. He gave it right back to you.

I swear is being a fucking crybaby a liberal thing or is it strictly a Toledo area liberal thing?

Chris you can edit out the f-word if you want but I put it in there for emphasis. Of course I'm sure it got flagged for being a personal attack by AC and Paul.

MikeyA

Most time I avoid giving Mike Arthur any more attention he craves but really you come to my thread and soil it with profanity? How dramatic! Using the medical term sphincter is hardly in the same league as f**k! Why do you bother and comment on my threads? I regard your contribution as I do a fly at a drop toilet! Please refrain from the profane in the future Mike. As I've said before, I don't post on every thread on SB. You Mike seem to think its one of your troll duties to opine everywhere. Please Marine Corp find this guy something to do!

Statements made are the opinion of the writer who is exercising his first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and are generally permitted.

It's spelled Marine Corps, we are not a Corporation and thus abbreviated Corp.

Not that I care, but I know your fellow liberal on here really REALLY care about spelling.

Since you're so convinced that's who I am why don't you post his address again? Trust me it will not bother me since I don't even know who lives there. See how that works out for you.

If Chris wants to edit my post he can. Unlike you I'm not a whiner. If Chris feels like I crossed a line I'll defer to whatever decision he makes.

You don't post to every thread, you just reply to yourself because you're pathetic and like to as you call it "opine".

MikeyA

The Marine Corporation is selling war. No other reason we are back in the Middle East. Our military leaders retire at 20 years then go an sell out the United States for money.

Why don't you make me bother another thread?

That's funny. Your links are funny.

The first one deals with people when they get out of military service. Why should the Pentagon know who goes to work for whom after they leave military service? Once they go on the retired list why should the DoD be able to track their movements? They served their time honorably, let them be.

The second one is just laughable. "Pro-War pundits" eh? It quotes Gen Anthony Zinni USMC (ret) as a loud advocate of war and it suggests it's because of being on the board of BAE Systems. Well let's just type in "Zinni criticizes" into google and see what comes up.

OH LOOK, the first site is one of your favorites! Democratic Underground and the article is about Zinni criticizing the Bush administration for the Iraq War. BTW, he was on the board then too!
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&add...

This link is CBS from the time of Dan "These documents are real" Rather. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/gen-zinni-theyve-screwed-up/

So yeah, looks like The Nation is full of shit.

Oh as for their assertion of Gen. Mattis USMC (ret) being pro-war because he now works for General Dynamics, well I'd go back and look at the statements by General Mattis on war, the Iraq War, and then ask yourself if this is the type of man who needs to be paid to advocate war.

Please don't bring this weak shit to me. I know my Marine Corps Generals and I didn't even have to try to descredit your sources.

MikeyA

Yeah, that's Billy being a knee-JERK reactionary in order to get in shots against us and thereby making things worse while thinking his own shit don't stink. We won't see an apology or an "oops!" from him, either.

Keep up the good work, Billy!

Yep

Yep, you're right, my bad. Whoops.

Yep

Yep, you're right, my bad. Whoops.

Trolls like Linecrosser (I Can't Believe It's Not DTOM) and GZ too. And there's yourself, with nothing useful or insightful ever except to randomly pop in to go after myself or Paul. And if you really want to argue your track record, we can of course take a look at your post and comment history.

Some of the people in this thread.

Internet is mean to me

MikeyA

Quit wasting my taxpayer dollars you goddamn socialist welfare queen and get back to work, or get out of the government you hate so much and go to work for Xe or whatever the hell Blackwater calls themselves now, like the good little LLLibertarian Capitalist you think everyone else should be.

All complaints of fraud waste and abuse can be directed to the Marine Corps Inspector General. Here is their website http://www.hqmc.marines.mil/igmc/UnitHome.aspx. I wouldn't mention Blackwater in the complaint though since you saw fit to insult the Marine Corps "masters" or whatever you want to call the people who oversee it.

I hope your complaint gets farther than the letters you wrote on fred.

Oh yeah, hey whiners, Les Grossman has a message for you before you go.

Les Grossman

MikeyA

Oooooo, someone's butthurt. What's the matter, Mikey, Xe denied your application because you're not actually such a badass after all? Clinging on to that government teat instead of being the badass MFer shooting brown people for AMERICA AND FREEDOMS! getting you down?

Seriously, everyone with a clue already knows you're a pogue, a REMF, a colossal chickenshit, given how you are ALWAYS posting here instead of actually being away fighting for the America you keep bashing so much.

"Bawk bawk bawk," says MikeyA the Chickenhawk.

What are you doing on here? I already gave you the link to the site, go lodge your complaint.

If you don't really want to make a complaint... go home and get your fucking shine box!

Smiley face

MikeyA

Mike Arthur USMC cut out the profanity you disrespectful kook. You have a serious mental problem when you troll around and post crap like this on other sites like TT.

Every body shhhh, Paul is watching you.

LOL,

I have a mental problem. Says the guy attempting to out me.

Hey Paul, why don't you look up my feelings on facebook. It's in my comment history here. LOL

If you have a problem with the profanity you can push the little flag button. Like I said, if Chris has a problem with what I've posted he can edit me. If he wants to put me in time out he can do that too. Unlike you, I respect his authority and responsibility on this site. I appreciate that he allows us to post here. I am equally appreciative of JR.

AND THAT is why I can post on TT and you cannot. You lack respect because you give none to others.

Now go get your shine box!

MikeyA

It's hard to admit that Fred has gone away. I know the trauma of separation is great. We realize your acting out is a form of therapy. Soon this will pass an SwampBubbles will settle down and get back to what it once was before Fred. Hang in there time will cure all.

Paul, to me fred is just another poster on SB. He has his own life and work and outside of this forum our paths do not cross.

If anyone is having an issue it's you. First, you lurk on a site you were kicked off from. Dude, I'm actually saying this as a concerned person, GET HELP!

That is antisocial behavior. Are you sure you're not bipolar?

You're obsession is with fred. I didn't mention him except in response to posts where he was mentioned or when I responded directly to him.

His choice to stop posting affects me in one way, not at all. I chose to stop posting at TT. I just like this forum better. It's mainly to do with layout issues. That choice affected him in no way at all I'm sure.

Your obsession is not healthy. I really pray for your daughters you seek the help of a professional. Your obsession causes you to do wreckless things that we've all witnessed here. It one day will affect their lives and they do not deserve that drama.

MikeyA

Yes looks like ole Denny Schaffer is cleaning up in the Toledo ratings. Friday Pete Gerkin gave a lengthy news maker interview on Star 105.5 about Jeep. The new morning show host has had interesting guest on everyday last week. Denny is on from 6 to 10 AM weekdays. https://www.facebook.com/star105toledo

I won't be listening.

Star 105 is owned by Cumulus which is a Koch Bros/Bain Capital/Mitt Romney operation. So that's why I don't listen to corporate media that's trying to take the money away from the 99%.
