Enough Derek J Already!
« on: May 19, 2012, 08:46:25 PM »

Are we seriously going to have to listen to a 5-10 minute ad from Derek J every night he's in jail?

I, for one, say enough already.  

We know what happened, we know where he is, we know about the movie, we know we can write him, we know he's trying to raise money to support himself since he's been run out of Keene.  

We get it.

We don't need to hear it every night!

They did the same thing for Sam. It will relax after a while.

I think he's called twice.

According, to your show descriptions he's called in 3 times, and beau's call the other night makes 4 calls from jail which were basically just Derek J ads.  That's on top of the 5/7 show, of which a full 25%+ was Derek J Talk Live.  In addition to the full episode of Free Keene Radio News that somehow ended up on the FTL podcast feed.

And there's been essentially no new information given in all of that airtime.  The repetitiveness is monotonous.

Then lets hear from any of the others.  :?  Or hear this "hero's" views on anything that doesn't center directly around the same situation we've heard about again and again.  Or hear anything that doesn't sound like an ad for his movie, his online begging, or mail-to-jail.

Mark and Ian are apparently all distraught over the decrease in podcast downloads.  I know that my friends who have stopped listening have cited the repetitive NH-centric information as their primary reason for leaving the show behind.

Hell I wouldn't even mind so much if it was smart effective activism.  Bothering grandmothers in the secretarial pool or trying to evade cops on a friggin bicycle is neither - it is just dumb and petty.  REALLY??? Make a martyr out of Derrick for trying to outbike a cop car???  I realize y'all like to smoke but it sounds like your product has some additives.

I'm going to say I like Derek J, but I fail to see the sainthood he seems to have attained in the eyes of at least one FTL host.  Then again, as Denis has implied, that host has a tendency to obsess with what he probably considers "Keene heroism."  In fact, the focus on Keene and what many of us consider "overboard activism" (not on every occasion, but on a great many) has been a significant controversy amongst many who AMP the show.  I, for one, think it probably is not a coincidence that AMP contributions are falling, as listeners see the backlash from the Keene community over what some of us feel are poor activism choices.

NONE of this is a knock on Derek J's personal choices.  I think it's more unwise to give marginal choices airtime on a nationally syndicated radio show which depends on AMP dollars to promote libertarian philosophies, and presumably, activism.  Put another way, there's a concern that what seems to turn off the locals in Keene could just as easily turn off the national audience, which is presumably less freedom loving, overall, than a New Hampshire neighborhood.

Amp supports LRN. I would hope people would keep that in mind.

I definitely agree with the sentiments expressed by Aahz and What's the frequency, Kenneth?

I am not sure if Ian even gets it if his only response it to dispute the number of times Derrick has called in.

I am sure Mark does, but he seems to be a minority shareholder in the entire operation.

If you guys think this is bad, you should go back to '09 when Sam was in the pokey for 58 days.  He was on a lot.

My co host is in jail for not harming anyone and you're saying it's bad to give the guy airtime.  Wow.  I hope you never go through the same thing.  Sorry for caring about my friend, co-host, and tenant.

Actually, just kidding.  I'm not sorry at all.  Derrick is great talent and some people really appreciate hearing what it is like in jail.  Sorry it's not your bag.

What else do you consider repetitive?
