You know, George is phoning it in an awful lot these days. He's acting like a guy who can't be fired...or doesn't care if he's fired.
Noory has been phoning it in from day numero uno, although I concur his abject apathy has increased ten-fold in the last while. Mentally deficient and void of any reasoning faculties, him being appointed the chief host position also speaks volumes about the inept producers. I realize many of us here tune into C2C for our nightly dose of train wreck, jaw-dropping entertainment, so do I. However, what makes me angry is that here you have a superlative media platform to convey significant and truly thought-provoking subject matter to a discerning demographic, and Premiere Radio and the show's producers have simply eradicated that mind-set from their plan of action.
C2C is radio schizophrenia; it brings on (rarely) viable guests who have something tangible to throw out there, and yet, in my opinion, with the exception of perhaps Knapp, the other hosts simply don't have the mental goods to catch these waves and ride them. C2C simply doesn't know whether it's a drama or a comedy; the latter is achieved by default. The producers and its host of hosts from the bottom of the journalistic trash bin truly have no idea as to how they are themselves the stand-up joke. It's not that they don't care to know how a growing number of frustrated listeners feel - they simply are not equipped with the mental and objective tools to even have this cross their minds.
If someone at Premiere Radio had an ounce of intelligence, media savvy, and foresight, they'd quickly ascertain the fact that there's more gold in them there airwaves ratings if they would scrap the entire present format, hosts, and producers, and re-invent the wheel to cater to the larger group of intelligent and discrimating listeners, who, in my opinion, far exceed Coast's large (yet smaller) number of listeners who reside further down the human food chain.
George Noory is a pathetic, small-minded, and professionally inept little man, but he is being enabled by a team of equally small-minded and inept producers. Producers who continually insult the intelligence and integrity of members of OUR demographic by green-lighting the parade of insipid and deranged guests. If C2C is a year long bad Christmas present to us, then this team is consistent; it's the gift that just keeps on giving.
Somewhere, out there in space and time exist a host of remarkable and engaging on-air hosts and producers who could have, should have made C2C one of the world's most outstanding alternative media sources.
And it's our loss.
That said, Like others here, I simply throw my hands in the air, don my humor suit, and get a thrill out of listening to this train wreck of an absurd comedy. I am spellbound by the trash element that George, Ian, and John B. toss out into the alleyway each night.
