Sad Radio Day

Today, we were released from our on air duties at 1079 The LINK in Charlotte. With the current climate at The LINK, this has been something we have been planning for, so it's not a huge shock to us. The funny thing is, I called my mom to tell her what happened, and she said - "oh did you get escorted out of the building by some huge security guard?!" She was disappointed when I told her, "No, there was no manhandling of the pregnant chick." This is the way our business works so we have no hard feelings towards the LINK. I'll admit, it's odd not being on the air everyday but we have plenty to do right now BB (Before Baby).

I am so sad to you see you two go! The first time I moved to North Carolina was in 2006, then again in 2008. You both made me laugh every week day and I felt kinship being that I'm from Redmond, WA and we Westerners are SO rare out here.

I wish you both the best of luck in what I hope are fantastic new endeavors with your new bun coming out of the oven this Spring.

And I'm already sick of whomever this is taking over your program. Droll. Droll. Droll.

I cannot believe that the management at the link are such idiots! You guys were the best thing that had ever happened to that time slot! I will miss you both, but am so glad the baby blog is here so we can keep up with you and the newest member of the family. Thanks for the laughs, hopefully we'll hear you again soon.

your show was never broadcast in my area. I found you through podcast. So every day at work I was able to listen to all of the shows link offered. If for some reason I got behind I always downloaded hour one and hour two, I really liked the dish and the other 11:oo 0'clock news. Thank you for all the laughs you gave me in Ohio.

You and your show are really going to be missed! I was so looking forward to hearing all about the baby and how Potter (mal)adjusted to fatherhood. And yeah...the new chick is...ugh.

Angie said...

You guys will so be missed! This is a huge mistake with the radio station. The two of you were my lunch time reprieve in the car and never failed to make me laugh out loud. It's just a little ways in with the new lady, and nothing aginst her, but I've had enough of the bore. I'll spend time with my book instead.

The best of luck to you and your expanding family! I LOVE the baby blogs!

Kim said...

I'm a teacher, so I rarely had the chance to listen to your show, but anytime I could, I really enjoyed it! I'm so sorry that you won't be on "our" air anymore!

Lisa said...

Not liking the new girl. I listen to 104.9 or a cd now.

I am so glad that I found this blog to keep updated on what's going on! I think The Link made a wrong decision. I have already sent emails to all the management to inform them. I also do NOT like this chick. I think she has a harsh and flat personality. I know that you guys apparently do not have harsh feelings towrds The Link, but as a listener - I do.

Please keep the blog going! I was glad to find this!

p.s. if Link mgmt is monitoring the comments... I hear Karma can be a big ol' B.

Ashley said...

I can't remember being more disappointed than I was to hear someone else on your time slot on the Link. That sucked and I am so upset :( I am SO not a fan of this. Love, forever Candy and Potter fan and very disgruntled radio listener from Cornelius, NC..much love to your sweet family!

PaigeR said...

Dude whoever chick is in your slot SUCKS......I have even stopped listening to Matt and Ramona because I am too lazy to turn my radio station back to the Link when I get in the car in the evenings on my way home from work - to class.....All the best in 2010 - Rock it out with the little one and enjoy every minute of it!

Please let the Link come to their senses and get you guys back before you get picked up by "strangers". We miss you.
Everytime they get it right they screw it up. I say get rid of the guy that keeps screwing around with success. No offense to the new girl but she needs to find a new line of work. PLEASE COME BACK.

I usually never have an opinion on entertainment. When changes happen you can always find at least some good music out there somewhere. But...for the first time I'm really sad. Still, mid morning everyday I think "wonder what crazy things Candy and Potter are up to today". Then I remember, I'll never know cause the stupid LINK took them off the air. We really miss you!! Man, I wish you would get a job at another local station and take all the LINK's listeners!!

Keep the blog going. We can't wait to find out if it's a little boy or little girl.

Best of Luck on the job search. It won't take long. You are the best show in town!!!

Sandy Lail said...

Congrats on ur baby.
I also wanted to say I no longer
listen to the link. Nobody can replace you and Potter. And I really miss your phone scams. You two were perfect together. Please keep us updated when you go back on the air.

My wife and I just moved to Charlotte back in July, but I had been familiar with the Link from growing up in Greenville and spending many fun evenings in Charlotte in college. I was so excited to hear a fresh set of voices on 107.9 and we immediately became big fans of you and Potter.

It's a shame that 107.9 decided to "go in another direction" during the afternoon hours. You guys should really start up a weekly podcast or something. You know, to stay fresh :)

I had been listening to your show for several months and always looked forward to it on my drive home in the afternoons. When I came across the new girl, I thought maybe you two were on vacation or something, but when she stayed, I finally did a google search and found your blog. I am so bummed to not have you two anymore. I typically listen to Christian gospel stations, but in the middle of my day, I need something light and just plain FUN and you two were IT. So sorry to have lost you. I hope that you can use this time to feel really prepared for the baby. Wish you were coming back...

I hate new girl I have be listen for 14 years I MISS YOU SHOW [TO THE NEW GIRL I WILL NOT LISTEN TO IT]

Shelby said...

I hated to hear that you all had left. I was out of commission for a week with a super sick kid and when I came back... you were gone! :-( No flower, no chocolates, no goodbye kisses. ::pout::

Please keep us informed regarding the baby and especially regarding whoever picks up your FANTABULOUS show!!!!

Much love...

Three weeks later, still missing the show and staging my own little boycott. I've had XM radio all along. Now, I'm using it. Sigh. Miss you!

echoeve said...

Well I have to say I was really upset when I found out yall were gone...just gone..It's so sad. I haven't been an avid listener over the years, but I did listen almost all the time..I bought all your phone scam CD's they are awesome.

Years ago they changed the format on a radio station that I listened to...I loved Bob and Sheri in the morning and then all of a sudden I turned the radio on and it was Whoopie..I just didn't get it or like it. So that's when I discovered the 107.9 the link on the internet. I was really excited to find Bob and Sheri again. That was the day something truly amazing happen..yall came on right after. I thouhgt yall were the best so I listened everyday. Then when I discovered the podcasts for you I could still listen if I missed. I always thought I would make plans one year to travel there to the halloween party, or the skating things, or maybe just come and join the army, but now it's to late.

I will still keep tabs on you through myspace, facebook, and now the blog. Thank you so much for all the laughs. I recieved your last phone scam CD right as I was flying out for a family funeral. It was a sad time in all of our lives, but after the first veiwing Me, my mother, my husand, and my brother sat around a computer and listened to the whole CD. It was great joy for us during a really hard time. Thank you for that.

Your biggest fan in Southeast Georgia

I am so glad i found this website. I was so disappointed when i found you guys were off the air. I wrote and email to the program director and he actually responded back. I miss you guys on the air, you made me laugh during lunch...the new girl ....not making me laugh so much...Good Luck to you guys!!

Alison said...

I know I'm late to post this, but I just found your baby blog and wanted to say how much I miss listening to you and Potter everyday. You were the BEST show in Charlotte, hands down.

I know I'm a bit late, but I just found the blog and wanted to add to the comments. Still don't understand the Link management's thought processes... They could have ditched Bob & Sheri instead of you guys. I miss my daily laughs on the ride home. The new chick is about as boring as day-old bread, so I don't listen anymore. Wouldn't want to fall asleep while I'm driving.... I wish you both much love, happiness and success in all you do.
