Yeah so my film that ratio the won't move. The CBS television network you don't know how hard signing -- order to -- July it had encouraged the responsibility that. It says -- before we -- execution. Like you to be my -- -- the settlement that would make this battle station robotic. No style system a -- oppose him enough. You -- you. Analysts systems. Not -- that we demonstrate the power this that he. And it primary. The right. -- great disturbance in the -- yeah there's millions of voices and cried out in Canada. Those undecideds. It. Keeps. It's okay. Either -- yeah. Yeah we. Yeah Donnelly. It I took -- long yeah yeah. Full American river and and how it goes forward man. -- -- Welcome back to whatever we're welcoming you back to -- As we speak to right now we are recording this the week before. The fourth of July holiday is about a very clear gorgeous -- -- what we go on there. Four. What will be our last show on WJ FK. And for purposes of explanation I will simply tell you that. CBS and the powers that be Michael usage build those good people gave me the option of -- coming back into -- one last show for you I chose to record this message as opposed to doing that simply because. Well as I put it to them I did not want to preside over my own funeral fair -- that. -- it just seems to me that if I looked at this as. And ending perhaps it would be appropriate amendment and -- do a syrupy sappy election though and -- about you know it is. This is so sad that but it really you know I don't look at it that way. I look at this is the a new adventure and what I did wanted to do was say thank you with our very last oh yeah because of the timing of the -- announcement which are. By now I will think you have hurt I'm not sure but by now hopefully we can only guess. But hopefully you have heard that -- not stop the tape and make the announcement please go let me simply say this this yes we we are are done at WGA of it is an idea. Are very very nice little run for a way back when. A long time ago little over a year. I remember. I was gonna say no one thought we could doable that's a little -- is everybody so we can do it. But we -- You know when you do something new when you start pumping fresh. You're never quite sure. I probably wouldn't respond to -- -- and I were together for twenty years and I wasn't sure you know exactly how would be received but the fact of the matter is. That it was received well -- and as we speak to you the last ratings that we looked at. I -- the highest we've had here at WJ FK and we -- though. So grateful that because you don't get that in the for the people Washington DC home because I think that who's gonna hear this primarily amateur this'll. Get out to our network -- not. I just wanted to say thank you to lose to everybody that supported the show. The frustrating point to when you and something is we really felt that that we were really hitting our stride and and we understand. The of the situations. I will tell you the people around the country. Are no stranger to these kind of circumstance where. You go into work you're doing your job you're doing it well do as good as again and you know and and something like this happens I don't have to tell a lot of people there are a lot of you. That are probably listening to my voice right now. That's realized you know hey. You know the same thing happened to me. Yeah unfortunately in a well over twenty year radio career. It never happens and if you or or are yeah. I -- -- there yeah you -- there yeah. You've been there and I was fired from College Station your county where you really fire -- college I was that she's in I don't what do you have figured -- up to do that well I was aided by a man named Robert flawless this and it's not that I don't harbor -- let's test sites still think of -- murder. I. Dream well here it is. As best I can tell you we are going to be. Working behind the scenes to find another home for the Michael marriage here here we are going to take some serious time. To -- to take a breather and to process all of this what is -- the government on the air a delightful year. Behind the scenes we have. With the economy being what it is. Has been a very difficult year. All of us have been through this in the radio industry it is very very frustrating. And because of that. I think we're all going to take a breeder and take a deep breath and try to evaluate where where we are are after the you know. It's so frustrating when I think of so many good people. There have been in this similar situation throughout this year and you know we. We thought that the the there was chance that we -- hang in there with this but it's it's not happening and I don't cry over crap like that. I'm moved forward and I really do believe that things do happen for a reason. So you know I just wanted to come in here today record this segment which -- god knows when they're gonna play it for it. Michael used to -- it uploaded or prominent time I sure hope they do that it'll be overnight August 10 the F. -- not active mail data may -- a couple of the other dead of night. The thing is that aren't on our show. I work group does Burbank -- group rob spew act but. All of us primarily. Work -- -- you the listeners and -- it it seriously sounds like a cliche to say it but each and every day. The phone calls and especially the new phenomenon we we got right after we started the textures that I. I really don't know if I would have committed enjoyed doing a radio show I got so addicted. To our people texting me on the show and the FaceBook friend and the FaceBook -- -- -- probably gets about a second because I don't wanna Syria and and give -- all your -- here because you're entitled to and burned it. Bottom. The the techsters. I think I'm not sure he has none of the day when we started it was not -- -- when we started doing in general is we -- -- we have -- -- at the beginning now it was only about a month a month and a -- and I think I came in every day I have had some of the most are merciful ball -- and I history of my career but I. Thoroughly loved it because 99.9. Percent of the time. Is evil is it could be it was not mean spirited bright and there was mean spirited I blocked and that was a there was such a great way in the middle of that interview. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I didn't come back and talk to the listeners because. This has to be sent. The we will be doing since we found this news our our third show today yeah. These last three shows. I gotta -- -- some of the they have been very very difficult to. It's hard to come in here and it would have been even harder to come back after. We can take weeks and that's all it would have been harder to command as I said to them while they were -- the other guys from the bar yeah. -- just didn't wanna go through that and I think it's important for -- -- you know you guys -- came to me and said -- we're not up for that we and I couldn't do it and I agree with you and I said -- you know here's an option. It's not the option I would -- chosen the option I would -- chosen would have been decided by. With our very last show that option I -- chosen as they on the -- -- have -- through the -- on the table -- I would tell you that option is it is very much alive dead and you know -- -- -- my -- returned -- calls a I plan -- working very very hard. Are meant to a particular -- Let me go through before I turn it over to to have to -- And -- have their spiel. I'm you know. We we've been through. More than most families go through. On this radio program. It started with a -- retirement actually started probably long before -- retirement. And you know it was a very very. Smooth transition and it was a smooth transition because I think at the you know at the end of the day even though we're just like Brothers. And says it is. We don't we wanna kill each other sometimes on most you know it we were friends there was a friendship and a very long term friendship wearing. We knew each other sideways we knew the ins the outs of everybody. And I think. That's what made it's so pleasurable for me because as I said before with all the crap. And god knows outside of these studios don't want them when the show's over when the mikes are turned off. You know the crap quotient was pretty or you could monitor on a daily basis and you know it was something that too. It helped me become an -- a microphone on almost every the other was written base's specially when this was going to probably knew what happened you know we -- -- man that's amazing is due to his only -- -- -- that's right yeah it really really care where it's gonna record here you know we're coming out talking about our lives every day and it's very very frustrated. And believe me. This is to use the listener. If there is any way. That I could have handled this any differently. I would we want LSI would've done the last show for you but. You know what. That's the way it gets complicated when you work for big giant. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know little things because we can I think duration of this studio. You know it was just it was a friendship and the finger also existed. On my show and I wanted to -- exist on a macho. Was respect. Respect for everybody no matter what you hear on the year there was an abiding respect for everybody I worked -- if I did that. If I communicated that people I worked with -- that I've done my job. The feedback I've gotten -- the week we have had here leading up to the fourth of July as I said before this is recorded. In. As indicated to me that that I've done my job yes and -- successfully -- I almost consider that more of the success and the ratings success the so. Once again that's that's my spiel about sort of what we're where we are. We've loved working your WJ FK we've loved working with the junkies will now the sports junkies yeah yeah that's they always worth a sports talk briefly about -- remains. As far as shattered Oscar. Can't thank those guys enough just wonderful nice guy's amazing and a wonderfully talented gentleman on broadcast wish them the very best to and from you know as far as a Michael use -- I joke about Michael use -- at about Michael you know we all -- -- but Michael use. Has been one thing to me throughout my entire relationship with him you're at WJ FK and this might come as a shock you. That's called honest. He has been honest with me. As as as much as he can be under the circumstance right. And Michael I want you know I understand that CK. I know you were our quarters well yeah and I noted you are. Hurting but don't heard about this because the fact is. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Progress on what's happening with careers. You don't you talking about some time that has to pass right for obvious reasons -- you look bored with the legal details of this but. There are certain things that have to happen there -- -- with Michael Jackson's Wilbur Wright I look forward to communicating with you individually. And talking to you about circumstances are you you know I look forward to do an examiner -- to death. Didn't wanna come into one of those shows all this sucks so this sucks that the alarm about an. And as that I'm not looking this looking at this funeral on looking this as a hopefully a new beginning -- and you know well -- be honest with. Tough market out there it is very very difficult -- of you know that this radio company just like every other radio company. The economy is very difficult but we're gonna make and -- ordered got to regroup. I kinda think from articulate temperature mr. Burbank -- speedway that we all. Have a little gas tank you know little and we kind of like what we're doing here may be an artist by us -- -- colon yes yes you're you're irritated -- -- so that's it buzz -- wanted to give you this is to say and it's I have -- monopolize the conversation here. But let's say thanks to listeners number one you're you're what makes has come back some of the nice things. That have been said Madden you know. Especially on FaceBook for example. We -- such wonderful things from people and and you don't know how that's gotten us through so many days. We appreciate that so much than the ratings that we got also -- reflect today in las at least the feeling. That what we were doing was the right thing for the time and that's very gratifying and and we have to thank you for that as well. The kind of support the enthusiasm gap the loyalty of your support has been amazing I don't know. It if there's ever been anything like on earth except of course. For the Don -- Mike -- -- -- dogging the the founder of this feast and Mike who has done. Such a remarkable job everything that was ever asked of him and everything by the company and everything that ever needed to be done. Might easily took the Helm chart and and led us through it and it's been a great great right I've been here at WJ FK for. Eighteen years almost eighteen to its -- about more than half the time I've been married and certainly almost half of my career so this place means a lot to me and always will. This was a very special place is a very special place the first. The best in the last that would -- talks stations and I'm honored to have been a part of that. On that -- are all I have to say you guys. Have been great it's been great working with you I am and I look forward to working with you again in the very near future not mainly what I have to thank you buzz that's terrific. I've only been here seventeen years so I guess that makes me newcomer yes you can change isn't it though it only does mention the years it just blows me where we're and realize how quickly that Imus Colombo are you guys have -- a lot of stuff I concur with everything you said but I do wanna add this is that CK. Even though I was basically doing the same job and I'm doing now when you start as an intern and now you're my boss. I'm not all that pissed at you -- I. Hot -- But seriously if there's ever been a champion for this show and actually for you know even myself I'd. Yeah you and I appreciate it very much. I've been the toughest on Hughes during this broadcast I think of anyone in this room bully and and know that that's just its total bull right behind the scenes. A nice guy who takes a genuine personal interest in the employees that work here and that stuff is is not lost on Michael thank you very much in bed bath and you probably got to bring her in here rob as a matter of fact generally. Yeah we do is -- I hate to interrupt your thing but it opened the -- -- get her is she going to -- they're good coming right I've been listening. That and thank you for putting up with me. I think it is one thing that is I don't wanna cast a -- on this is pretty upbeat thing real sorry Kate he's not here because. As the as the week of course that before we -- India. In a car wreck -- a little she's doing okay -- if there's another person that has brought as much sunshine this must learn bring it to me because she is great. Are you surprised she never sleep slept with -- I am really I -- but you know. The day is young my guess she's gonna like it and that's you know I -- I hate to erupt and that's what I do review yes it is just the other -- is a very tender moment when I realize the bond. You stepped out first and she can. It she. Perhaps. Tell us special moment he brought me 10 -- get and that's great and I was allows you partly for everyone gets a lot of about it -- is buzz I've known you for the whole time I've been here right. We've never worked closely together as we have for the past fourteen months and thank you for making me wanna be a better broadcaster work ethic is amazing skill as a writer. Is unparalleled so thank you than any longer for me and Mike it's weird for me because. I got into this business because -- listen to you and your partner and for you to put the faith in me to say the opposite view and bring me along. Very very cool and I am honored and I'm pleased that the reason we're leaving is not at fault yeah. But it. I'm that we all remember that that's ahead I mean the fact that. You when you came over to do than usual you fought to bring me and put what responsibility you gave me on my shoulder and a I'm still has to marvel at and I will always be thankful work thank you for putting -- and it's great and of course you the listener who have been so generous with your acceptance and in praise it's. It's truly humbling and that's coming from someone who. It's the listeners as. I thought you don't really I don't know I don't know I don't edit them but tonight I you know what I really down and with the advent of this FaceBook thing to talk to you so many one on one and methods. What are remarkably great bunch of people thank you so much for letting us do what we've done all the time. Thank you -- and -- -- -- -- the best in the business nobody works harder nobody takes more my craft and that she was my single punching bag during -- entire experience but you know as I I care deeply for her being that you does a terrific job and I I really think that you're part of this. This team is well. We took this this program with a integrate run the reason I'm going a little longer than the the twenty minutes -- and has this you know they'll cut something out of this with a comment so you know. This yeah I. Right now the minute -- SX is running a minute and a half might be good -- so that they can I. So anyway it really just a very wonderful dysfunctional family we -- And -- we don't predict the future. A that's the last thing you can do in show business of any kind certainly in the radio business. There have been a lot of people. That I and I might they are are very talented radio broadcasters. That I had gone through the exact same thing we did during -- exact same one that's a six month period. And you know you tempered the future you don't know what's gonna happen. -- I know that I'm probably going to be. Sitting on a beach somewhere for a little while and thinking about how I'm gonna trumpeted about activist and an idea. You know with that said it's very very difficult time for entertainment in general and I think we have to be very very aware and be very very very vigilant. About some of the the stuff we have going away. Be aware of how free you are in this country. Be aware of things that are being lost that I have any kind of innovation and creativity and it's gotta be aware that bad. Back to add anything you wanted to do not get -- I -- -- yeah I just want to have that little ways I saw that. When I left the best radio show on the whole wide world I know it. And when I came back to the best radio on the world and you that is well and I came back for Mike came from buzz and I came back for Iraq. -- came back for -- That's Jordan -- -- Newton new areas and back to you now and consistent tip and I love you and down.

Elegant always you have -- I had I wanna thank you in time. And all the people that worked with in this -- it's been. Eight years I think you.
