"Rats" talk show fascist to guest host on KPRC 950 in Houston, Dec 21 & 26
"David Gold", a talk show fascist who has been fired from just about everwhere will be "guest hosting" on The Party's Ministry of Propaganda Official AM outlet, KPRC in Houston. This is the guy who loves to refer to the Democrats as "the rats" the same way Goebbels refered to the Jews in Nazi Germany in his radio broadcasts. If I had my way, I'd mass picket the station.

From his website:

"Lots of changes for Clear Channel Houston. I don't think it was one issue that sunk Pat Gray. Just ratings and salary issues. I'll be doing some fillins at KPRC Dec. 21 and 26-29th." - from his website, link to topic:

Carry the fight to them. Call in on those days and give this SOB hell. Myself, I intend to note who advertises on this show, who is paying to have this bastard call my grandmother a rat. They will never get a dime of my money after that, I assure you.

2. Maybe we can just get them to send an email
Edited on Sun Dec-10-06 01:01 AM by kwvining
Program director, Ken Charles, email is kencharles@kprcradio.com

Website is www.kprcradio.com

The way to get to these guys is to complain to the advertisers. They have lists of their advertisers on their web site, go to the advertiser's web site and complain as well. He wants to call us "rats", well then FIGHT BACK or end up like the Jews in Germany did when they ignored Goebbels. This guy isn't into political discourse, he is into Nazi-style slander:

3. So What Happened To Pat Gray?

I didn't know the sorry little prick was gone. Anybody have any details about the "one issue" that might have sunk him?

4. That guy was too much
Edited on Sun Dec-10-06 04:20 PM by kwvining
even for the GOP Grup Kaptains over at KPRC. King of the leering remark and insinuation politics. His daily anti-immigrant tirade turned into an anti-Mexican tirade, and they were starting to get complaints from their advertisers. The final straw was his decision to publicize the anti-Muslim "pig races", where a bunch of nuts were going off on a mosque being built in Katy. They were going to hold pig races on the land the mosque was going to be built on. This apparently was too over the top, so they fired him, at least that's what the rumors say.

If you want to troll Pat's website, it is at patgray.com - the website is a sorry piece of shit. Gee, what a coincidence.

If you want to keep up with the goings on on talk radio, their trade site where a lot of these bozos post and chat is at http://www.radio-info.com

Here's a thread on our "rats" pal getting fired from WBAP in Ft Worth:

http://www.radio-info.com/smf/index.php/topic,52465.0.h...

And this on Gray:

http://www.radio-info.com/smf/index.php/topic,55140.0.h...

The way for Democrats to deal with these guys is call their shows and call them out on their lies. They have huge live audiences: people in Houston and DFW stuck in their cars during rush hour, searching for traffic reports and such. If you get on their show, which isn't that hard if you have a cell phone with redial that you can hit constantly, you get to address that audience as much as he does. It is so easy to cut these GOP stooges off at the knees because so much of what they spout is lies. It also helps us, because as long as only people who agree with them are calling in, it sounds to the casual listener like everyone thinks that way. If you call in to disagree, it dispells that particular propaganda effect. It is also a great place to "take the fight to the enemy" - you get to put what you have to say right in the face of the rightwingers and Republicans, and man does that piss them off.

5. Gray was a complete idiot...like Glenn Beck lite.
Glad he's gone.

Now what's the story with Limbaugh going to KTRH? What RW idiot will take his slot at KPRC?

8. That one is because of Clear Channel
The declining audiences are starting to hurt - Clear Channel, which is owned by Bush's college roommate, is in financial trouble. They are selling a bunch of stations - they own both of the fascist outlets, KPRC and KTRH. They are going to sell KPRC and move their most profitable shows over to their more powerful KTRH station. KPRC, is God is just, will become a Hispanic station. Ha! Pat Gray! You suck!

11. I wonder if that means KTRH will jettison the Ed Schultz (tape delay) show.
I hope not - throw us a bone here.

6. Thank You So Much For The Informative Links......
....particularly the final one, which has some fascinating marketing details on why strident right-wing jerkoffs like Gray are finally being nudged out of radio because of declining audiences. May the trend continue, for a long, long time......

9. If you want to fight these guys, write the advertisers
Edited on Tue Dec-12-06 09:53 PM by kwvining
They all have websites, and it only takes a minute. Quote something objectionable in the broadcast. Tell them you heard it, and want to know why they are paying someone like Mike Savage to call you a "traitor" or a "red diaper doper baby". Last night Savage said Moveon.org is planning mass murder after they gain power. Write GEICO an email and ask them if they only want stormtroopers for customers, you'll be glad to spend your money elsewhere.

FIGHT BACK! Call them, be nice and vague to the call screener, and then subtley cut the fascist host off at the knees. I have found that the second tier national hosts are easy to get on. I got hung up on by Michael Medved last week after I made him look like a fool. I told both John Gibson and Bill O'rielly off. Join the fun! It is worth it, because for long as you talk, you get to address their audience for free! 5 million people will hear what you have to say on a typical O'Reilly show, for example. If you do really good, you'll get them foaming at the mouth, chewing up their airtime with a rant. Don't listen to what the host is saying, just keep talking to make your point, they all know where you are going to go and they want to stop you from making your point, because they hate the truth.

7. Ah, I wondered where David Gold went.
He was a fixture here in Dallas in the 80s. Was Jewish (real name Goldstein) but became born again when he married a Pentecostal christian. Got in a bit of trouble when 19 illegal immigrants suffocated in a truck and he said they deserved it.

This guy is a real piece of work.

10. I hate the guy
That whole thing he does where he calls us "the rats", I've heard it, I've read him using it on his website, it makes my blood boil. Of all the talk show hosts, with the possible exception of Savage (he calls for mass arrests of liberals, stopping just short of advocating us being gassed, but his listeners know what he means), Gold is the most despicable posuer in the whole pantheon. I have enjoyed watching his career go in the skids, no one deserves it more than him.

12. Pat Gray's real name is Gay
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 08:21 PM by Perragrande
Pat Gray changed his name for broadcasting and he went to my high school, Sam Rayburn in Pasa-Git-Down-Dena. Think he granulated in '67.

I know this because he hosted one of the reunions I went to (not my year reunion).

13. He's got a job.
Pat has a new job at Dan Patrick's far right 700 AM. It has the weakest signal in all of Houston, and only broadcasts until around 8 PM. Call him up and give him hell!

14. Now There's A Match For You

Pat Gray and Holy Dan Patrick, together at last. The only thing that could make it better would be for Holy Dan to get Jon Matthews back on. Jon, who used to be Houston AM Hate Radio's most popular morning screamer, hasn't gotten much air time since he got busted for making sexual advances to an adolescent girl, after luring her into his home. These people, and the pond scum who listen and believe what they say, all deserve one another......
