We got a feedback letter sent to our website from a guy who I don't think really likes The Big J Show, just a hunch. We talked about the letter on the air and I have been getting a lot of feedback about it. Here is the letter from the infamous "Ticked Off Tom". I had to edited some of it for language and privacy concerns.
"I just wanted to write in to ask when you are going to bring some class back to your station. I used to listen to this station a lot and then you put that rude, self centered, idiot Big J on the radio and completely ruined the stations good reputation. I flip through the channels in the mornings and I bet 9 out of 10 times I will turn to your station in the morning I will hear at least one completely rude or racial, or socially wrong statement out of that guys mouth. If something is not done very soon and I get a response to this email I will be posting my own web site petitioning everyone to stop listening to your morning show. Anyone that thinks they are better than blacks, or homeless people, or anyone else that comes from a different background is completely insensitive and uneducated. Radio stations are supposed to be partial to everyone not be complete racist immoral pigs. Big J has the most #%$*ed up views on everything that if anyone should not be awarded the right to breath oxygen in this world it would be people like him. Feel free to forward my information onto that idiot and he can call me on the show to help show off how pathetic and uneducated he is. HE IS NOT FUNNY, and he is ruining your station. Stop being cheap and go back to the Playhouse out of Portland or some other show that has some form of intelligent, impartial views so you can stop alienating your listeners. The Playhouse show was rude at times but were not complete racist and immoral pigs. I am sure a site with clips of all the thousands of immoral things that idiot says, along with contact information to all your advertising clients would really help them realize what type of show they are advertising on and would probably think about going elsewhere to avoid being linked to such a pig. If I don't hear back in 2 weeks I will be posting my website and will gladly forward the link on to you and every other radio station and web blog relating to billings that I can find. Big J needs to go. If you need other information to back up his stupid behavior go look into his comments on Billings Gazette web site. I am sure they could give you a print out of all his account postings. He shares his same immoral, self centered views on there as well.
There you have it. Wow!
I don't really get how somebody can be that passionate and angry about a radio show. Why would you not just change the station? It makes no sense to me. I love that he thinks his Super Awesome Quest to rid Billings of Big J is going to make some sort of difference. My opinions are no secret, they are live on the air every weekday morning from 6-10 a.m. and A LOT of people hear them. Most of our advertisers already know what goes on during my show because they listen! Some of them call in, some of them are friends of mine, and some purchase advertising on my show because whether they like it or not, my show and in turn their message reaches a lot of people and that is the point of advertising.
I really hope for Tom's sake that something exciting happens in his life so he can have something else to be this passionate about.
But either way...at least we know he is listening! :)
