A little more on Goose

Just talked to KKMG "Magic" program director Chad Rufer. If you're curious about new morning man "Goose," here's what he said:

Goose is from Detroit, but his last gig was in Waterloo, Iowa. He's been doing Top 40.

The show is going to be less gag-driven than the CK and Lazerman version of yore. Rufer says it will be "more Ryan Seacrest, less Dick Clark." So what does that make CK?

It's just Goose, no last name -- which is one of those annoying radio things. Greg "Lazerman" Lazor said he had his real name in the phone book for eight years and got maybe two calls. Plus, if the Springs can fall in love with a Georgiann Lymberopoulos, how bad can Goose's real name be?

Listen to what the pd said. Think, all of your questions have been answered, Names are not important on the air, it's content, timing and giving the listners entertaining radio.

Well exactly. So why not use real names and let listeners know the DJ is a real person? It's not a big deal, just a pet peeve.

Names do make a difference in the type and amount of calls an air talent receives. (experience) Names also are the difference whether the announcer is remembered or not

not that I listen to Magic that much. Just hope he doesn't lay a egg (a golden one at that) :) bad cliche but with a name like goose. Doubt if his co-pilot is Maverick either.
