Hmmmmm ... I've been frustrated with the printer in my office. I wonder if I can throw a big temper tantrum, go apesh#t and take a sledgehammer to the printer while our clients are visiting this afternoon? I'm sure I'll just get a long weekend and come back to work on Monday, right?
Do they honorable thing. Throw it in your trunk, then you and Michael Bolton and Samir beat it to death in an empty field.

Several years ago, he had someone steal Bill Jordan (his morning competition at the time on Mix 101.5). He proceeded to go through it on the air and mock Bill, his wife and daughter. I believe Bill sued, but I'm not sure what happened. That's just crossing the line, IMO. I know I wouldn't want someone going through my trash and discussing my buying purchases, medications, etc.

I'm with everyone else. This sounds like a publicity stunt more than a real meltdown.

He had someone "steal" Bill Jordan? Did you leave out a word? "Trash" maybe?

The Michael Richards meltdown (not staged) got way more publicity than this, yet the incident never did his career any favors. The only thing Bob Dumarse got out of this is more awareness of his many shortcomings. Add horrible acting to the list.

I hate to admit that I actually listed to this show for 10+ years. After Madison left, the taste went right out the door. It is awful and I find it terrible that B@B gets paid alot of money to say the things he does. People must like to listen to him since still on the air but he won't ear any money from me listening

You are so right! It was better when Madison was on!! I know this is a post from last year, but Bob has been on a roll this week and I have had it with him! I sent him a message that he should stop holding the most progressive area in NC back.

How can Paula Deen get fired and Bob is still on the air for 20 years? It also seems like "Peanut Butter" is scared to stand up for herself. Erica said this week that she used to not stand up to Bob, but she will now she says.

The word used to be that Madison left for another station after Bob would not stop making racist and sexist remarks to her and it got to be too much. I don't know how true it is but it is surely not hard to believe.

Peanut Butter made a comment the other day saying that you knew Elvis was dead because if he was alive, he would have showed up to do something about his daughter marrying Micheal Jackson, then Bob speaking in Ebonics making fun of blacks- on and on and on.

There are black people and bi-racial people listening. My middle school son gets a kick out of them for some reason and asks to tune in once in a while and it makes me cringe. Most of the time, I don't allow it. The station proves me right every single time. One lady told them she refused to listen because they make people ignorant!! It's SO true!!!

They had G105 at my kids school as the special guests last year and I refused to go. One of the worst parts to me is that they even try to blend Jesus in every once in while! I messaged them this week and told them that to be Southern politically correct does not equal God being with their agenda. He is always slamming interracial couples, I mentioned that they should read Numbers 12 if they claim to be Christian. God smote Miriam (with leprosy)- Moses mother for talking down to him for marrying the Ethiopian woman.

Bob wants people to see him as a "Good Ole Boy-Southern Racist Christian". Isn't that ironic?

This week he keeps talking about a "lily white" lady in a grocery store who was changing the baby in the cart. " And she wasn't even a colored lady", he said!!! My whole car fell silent! I turned and said, "See, I told you Bob was a total A$$". Who even says colored anymore? That's why I sent him the message about holding a progressive city back. It is a shame that is the #1 station in the Triangle. I told him it wasn't worth the ratings for the damage he is actually causing and that my bi-racial son liked the station but I could not let him listen regularly because the ignorance will not contribute to making him a strong man some day. After they have heard these comments for themselves-they agree that Bob does suck!

I have actually worked with Erica's mom in Real Estate and she is a nice lady, you would never get her confused with the ignoramousness of G105's showgram ever.
