Orlando Radio: Buckethead Show OUT At WTKS

UPDATE 07/18/2013 1PM: Jason Bailey, aka Buchethead, has a new gig. He's doing mornings at WZGC Atlanta. Cick Here for story.

UPDATE 6/26/2013 12N:  Clear Channel has put Shawn 'The News Junkie" Wasson into the 11am-3pm timeslot.

earlier posting....

Clear Channel Orlando and The Buckethead Show have parted company.  The end came Tuesday.

No one is saying why.  Maybe ‘budget reasons’.



Jason ‘Buckethead’ Bailey posted the news on his Facebook page: 
The Real Radio gig was a dream come true for me. I had always had the utmost respect for the shows (past and present) that were on TKS and still do. I hope that you can understand why I can't get into all of the details on this right now. 
On a more personal note. The past year has been a rough one for me professionally. I knew that with certain issues in house and in the business in general I couldn't get to where I wanted to here in Orlando. That statement shouldn't be confused with me not wanting to do it here in Orlando. I'm just not a complacent person and I found myself surrounded by that so I made the choice to move on professionally so I could move on personally.
The end of the 11a-3p show leaves a huge hole in the WTKS Real Radio 104.1 FM line-up.

  5. I heard he was a jerk to everyone in tue company.He even called Bananna from the Philips Phile a bitch on air I was stunned even if you don't like her she still deserves respect. Clear Channel was not going to renew his contract next week was suppose to be his last.Instead of sticking it out and leaving respectfully. He ran like a coward without even saying buy to the listeners.I'm going to miss Oddo I only listened for him.

    1. Wow bro, if you're going to talk down about someone and try to imply that they're of lower intelligence somewhat, at the least, you should proof read or have someone else check, before you post it. It just makes you look ignorant,and is compounded greatly by the fact you're talking badly about somebody. Now im all about freedom of speech, I got shot in Iraq defending it during my service in the U.S. Marines. BUT, dont come off as a complete idiot by posting mistakes like, and I quote..." ran like a coward without even saying BUY to the listeners. " Were you disappointed he didn't purchase listeners, or did you mean "BYE to the listeners" ? lmao. And, "jerk to everyone in TUE company" ? I dont even know what that was suppose be. Anyways, just dont want you to try talking down to someone again in the future, when in all actuality, you have to look up to do it by your education, or lack thereof, and it not have been brought to your attention.

  6. Good riddance I say the news junkie was way better. The Buckethead show just wasn't funny. As for Jana banana, the only reason she isn't gone is because Jim Phillips won't let Clear Channel take apart his team.

  7. The secrecy of show/talent changes cracks me up...you guys are not exactly planning the invasion of Normandy over there. It disrespects the audience in my humble opinion.

  11. I THINK THE SHOW WAS BAD ALSO HE SURE DID LIKE HIM SELF ALOT WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT HIS GIRL FREIND WAS A MANGER AT SOMEWHENE I KNEW SOMETHING WRONG FOR ME GOOD GO MOVE IN WITH HER TALK TO YOUR SELF THEN YOU CANT BE WRONG AND MISS OTTO ALSO

  12. I would be full of myself too if my "girl freind was a manger"...:: A manger or trough is a feeder that is made of carved stone, wood, or metal construction and is used to hold food for animals (as in a stable).:: AND FOR GODS SAKE FANS IT'S ODDO...not otto...ODDO...ODDO...ODDO...loved you in Olive juice bro...you'll be back.

  13. Not a good show...needed to go a long time ago.

  14. The show was never good. He wonders why he didnt move up in the company. Talented people move. Your bits where sad and not funny whatsoever. The limited time I did listen I was not at all engaged. When you had the Mayor on and called him B Dwyer...give that man the respect her deserves. Thank god I have chosen to purchase XM radio. The station is all just talking heads. Jim philips just talks over you and Russ Rollins is clueless.

  15. I am glad to see the station woke up. They were the least entertaining show I have ever tried to listen too. Thanks for your ability to finally see our perspective.

  16. Philips file is even worse than the BHS. They sound like they just finished 5th grade. Even more so all involved are of the same political sort. Never any educated conversation...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Seemed like this show never really took off. I always thought Dirty Jim and Oddo should have had a chance to start a new show together, that would be worth listening too! And, it is just another typical round of heartless firings again at Cheap Channel. No regard for the talent or the listeners.

  18. I have listened to talk radio for 20 years. This was the worst show I have ever listened to. Should of never been hired in the first place.......no wonder Katherine Brown got canned. Get out of town clown

  19. Hated the show, so glad it's done. Do wish Oddo survives and pops up locally.

  20. Wow... Lots of haters!!! I thought they were pretty damn funny! I enjoyed listening to them. Best of of luck in the ATL!!

  21. Have listened to WTKS for years but when Buckethead started, had to change the station to keep from falling asleep at the wheel. Not a Monsters fan but even they shine in comparison.

  22. I would have to agree with the majority of these people here, in saying you were just an arrogant and ignorant ass. The show was not funny and tried to call several times to make that know and to correct. :)

  23. Dirty Jim, and oddo would be a great midday show. The bs sucked ! My 10 year old son thought the show was for 7-8 yr olds. Mel Robins on 96.5 was my lifesaver during a few of those hours. Hearing tickets tickets tickets tickets tickets changing the channel then two hous later still hearing the show repeat the word tickets.... A bullet to the my head was appropiate , but changing the channel was a better option

  24. Please, be the Phillip's Phile next to go. It is anextension of the owner's liberal views. As a show, it sucks big time.

    1. The owner's liberal view? Perhaps you should know that Clear Channel is owned by Bain Capital, Mitt Romney's company. Hardly liberal.

  25. Wow!!! So many anonymous haters. There is good in everyone and everything! Good luck Jason in whatever you decide to tackle next. I miss hearing your show. Your replacement is not even close!!

  26. The Buckethead show sucked from jump. I had actually stopped listening to this time slot because of him. Oddo is cool,Stacy ruled! And was sexy! I wish Oddo would take Bananas place. Stacy ruled! Banana is a HUGE lame turd in the punch bowl of life.

  27. Bring back Bull!

  28. I wish we could vote on who should be on Philips Phile,,, because Moe and Banana should GO,, Oddo was the only voice of reason and sanity, I cringe every time Banana perks up and contributes,,, and I can't stand Moe and that stupid la de da crap Jim lets her do every day,,, just replay Monster's show in the afternoon and do central Florida a favah

    1. So far this is the best comment yet. IF you can stand to listen to that awful show Jim Phillips put on, you'll notice it stops every 5 minutes for commercials. I have no reason why that dude is still revered. He is an terrible host and just likes to talk to listen to himself. As for BS, that show was terrible and just another example of Clear Channel not having a smart person in charge and able to spot good radio talent. The Monsters are a shell of what they used to be. Once Daniel Dennis left that was pretty much the ending of that show. Dirty Jim and Drunky are the only talent that show has. And finally, for God's sake DO NOT give SBK any more air time.

  31. It was never a great show, but what they replaced it with IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST! Total snoozeville.

    Still love me some Jim Phillips, and miss Oddo much!

  32. i have been listening to real radio since i was a kid.. been listening to the monsters for years and years .. most people dont even remember the monsters of the midday, or savannah, or bo .. remember the russ and bo show? lmao..

    point being.. theres been so many changes over the years its ridiculous.. still love the monsters, but theyre not a shadow of what they used to be.. it started when blackbean left.. that was probably their funniest period.. the dan and bean era.. then bubba got canned.. when daniel left that was the final straw for me.. i tune in every now and then but.. it aint the same..

    seems that at clear channel anyone can go at anytime.. not just people, but entire shows.. wham, gone.. remember the hideout? i for one didnt like the BS .. mostly chest beating is all that went on with that show.. good riddance.. but wtks aint the same as it was.. and it never will be.. they need to just can all the talk and go back to playing classic rock..

  33. 104 sucks. XM is cool!

  34. This station is a fraction of a fraction of what it used to be. The BS sucked, Oddo was the only good thing. Mo, B, Jack, they all suck on Phillips. And Jim...tired, boring, that show really drags nowadays. It's only a matter of time.
