Cumulus Radio & Jim Cates firing

5/17/2008 1:58:20 PM


To those of you who may or may not know, Jim Cates of KMAJ/AM talk radio got fired this last week.

Jim is my radio friend and I would call in regularly as a caller/listener.

Jim is probably the only radio talk show host who knew our faith based web site from memory, and to that I am eternally grateful.

We held a protest this past Friday at 28th & Kansas and I was there in support of making Cumulus be aware of the error of their ways.

I recognized many of my radio friends from years past.

So, as an Internet blogger and a concerned citizen for talk radio FREEDOM here’s my plans.

1) I will not be calling into the radio station anymore unless there’s open lines.
2) I will NOT be doing business with any of KMAJ/AM paid sponsors.
3) I WILL do business with those who have pulled their sponsorships.
4) I WILL be a host for a day put I’ll charge $100.00 for my radio hosting.

If Cumulus wants me to be the radio host for a day, here’s MY CONDITIONS.

1) I will NOT advertise the present sponsors.
2) I will ONLY advertise the sponsors who pulled their sponsorship.
3) I will have THREE HOURS of OPEN LINE.


Take that CUMULUS

OK ... I spoke a little harshly about the sponsors ... Sally & I will continue using Roger Shumaker as our financial advisor.

ALORICA (our “new” call center”?)

6/10/2008 5:50:56 AM

Those who know me know that I’ve been working at the call center here in Topeka since Aug 2007. I’ve haven’t seen any postings about my thoughts about working there.

Basically, working at the call center SUCKS. I say that in good humor as Sally & I are trying to get out of debt and this is just one way to achieve our goal. This job (just over broke) is what it is. I think I’ll give my top ten reasons why I’m still working there. Well, let me change that to ONE.


Here are the top ten reasons why one should NOT be working at the call center:

10) feel guilty about having to go to the bathroom.
09) listen to “customers” complain about their bill.
08) stress from supervisors from being in the wrong aux code.
07) wondering if you pass gas if your next cube neighbor will smell it.
06) scripting on the phone
05) getting fired for arguing with the custmer.
04) having to be nice even if you don’t feel like being nice.
03) eye strain from small fonts.
02) daily headaches
