Skip to comments.Does Snerdly exist?
Posted on 02/25/2008 11:18:25 AM PST by CrimsonDynamo
For more than 12 years we listened to Rush every day at our families software business.
I distinctly remember hearing a call from a female who asked if there was a Mr. Snerdly.
Rush said that he was made up and that he was merely an alter ego for bouncing ideas off of himself,
Like Rush was being his own Devil's advocate.
Someone has told me that they have actually heard Mr. Snerdly speaking on air.
I know the person who told me that is a certifiable flake, but am I losing my mind? Thanks.
Snerdly is a nickname that Rush made up and gave to his call screeners during the early years of his national show. There were actually several Snerdlys. If I remember correctly, the longest running of these was Bo Snerdly (real name James Golden). In the early days of internet radio, Golden left Rush’s show to do his own internet talk show. However, this only lasted for about a year before the company folded up. Since this time Golden has rejoined Rush’s support team as the “Official Program Observer”. I don’t really know what this job entails. Any way, when you here Rush refer to Bo Snerdly or Mr. Snerdly on his show, this is who he is talking about.
Bo Snerdley is James Golden who used to have a radio show...
Oh my.........I always thought this was a real person.
Snerdly is real, only the name is fake.
Real person(s), fake name
FYI most radio personalities use fake names, ususally somewhat similar to their real names, to help avoid stalkers.
Yes.. .I met him at the Count the Silverware Ball. Really nice man.
Ask Star Parker about the current Bo, she has dated him.
.....fake name ....
Pseudonym, Nom de Aire,,, both are real.
WELL LOOK AT YOU ALL FANCY
At a multi-station radio group I used to work for there was one young lady who had a morning show slot with one name on Station A, and a news reading position on Station B with another name.
The news reader pseudonym: Paige Turner.
Indeed it is. Back in BC, one of my neighbors had a friend in AM radio and they almost never used their real names for privacy and safety reasons.
Usually, they would use the first REAL name then last name would be made up.
Just like pornstar names such as d**k harder (sorry for the example).
Paige Turner - LOL!
My fav psuedonym - Imogene Poole-Schwimmer...
His own show was very good.
The traffic reporter for several of the stations here in ABQ is a lady that goes by Helen Wheels.
Otherwise known as Bush's Inauguration!! I was there, also....but I don't remember Bo Snerdly being there!! I do remember that GOV> Mike Huckabee's band was our ebtertainment!! Those were the days!
Not being a 24/7 member, I was always a bit skeptical of the existence of Mr. Snerdly - - - I wasn’t sure if he was in the disgronificator category or not - - - but then I saw the Limbaugh Letter at a friend’s house and it had pictures of Snerdly, so I decided he was real after all.
Thanks...don’t recall if I ever heard it, but did see him on a few TV talk shows...
We also did the same thing with our accounts payable. One of the names we used was Bill Payer.
BTW, who’s camera do you think they used to take the shot on post #6? :-)
Are you implying that the local radio personality Big D—k Hunter is not using his real name?
I thought Snerdly was really Brian, one of the Limbaugh staffers.
>>Are you implying that the local radio personality Big Dk Hunter is not using his real name?<<
I’m sure of it...I;ve used that name while dancing for the local Chippendales.
Or CHicago’s Mayor saying that all women love Dick Daly?
"Tard" refers to the ping list members and not to the subject of the thread!
List of Ping Lists
We used to have one named Alaine Closure.
Big Dk Hunter
What’s do funny about that? I have a very good fwend in Wome named Big . . .
Snerdly is whoever the call screener is that day.
Bo Snerdly is James Golden, who is more than a screener. He’s actually Rush’s friend. He returned to the show and stuck through Rush’s deafness, the Donovan McNabb thing, the drug addiction, and the divorce.
I recognize that Inaugural Ball! 2000/2001/ That was a great evening.
A friend of mine does traffic watch in my area, and I’ll catch his reports on half a dozen stations, all different names. I actually used my own name when I was in radio ... well, except for those couple of years in college when I also did a dance music show (ok, disco), and I didn’t use my real name so my jazz show listeners wouldn’t riot outside the station. :-)
Thanks for the link to the audio clips. I had lost it.
Snerdly, HR, all those characters in Rushs orbit are actual people; but not the same people. Many folks have worked under those names. Sort of like the “Straight Dope” column has always been written by “Cecil Adams,” which is the nom de plume adopted by the several different people who’ve done the actual writing.
I was there too and met Bo and both of you lovely ladies. That was a great weekend.
We have longstanding orders from my dad what to do in case he gets kidnapped. (He’s a sandblaster, which historically hasn’t been an occupation rife with cutthroats, but one never knows.)
If he manages to escape, he’ll place a collect call to us from Peter Handler. That’s how we’ll know not to pay the ransom.
My hand to God, I am not making ANY of this up.
It was FUN!! FUN!!!! FUN!!!!
That’s hilarious! Now I know where you get your sense of humor!
Thanks! & it was a great weekend!
Thanks! Good photos.
