Phil Hendrie Dropped from KFI

(February 7, 2005) After almost a decade with KFI, Phil Hendrie has been dropped from the station roster, according to KFI pd Robin Bertolucci. The John Ziegler Show will move into the 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. slot followed by George Noory until 5 a.m. Phil moves to KLAC 570AM, the new home for XTRA Sports.

Phil's show is syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, which is owned by Clear Channel. KFI and KLAC are also part of the Clear Channel/LA cluster.

Hendrie has been getting dropped from a few stations lately. His show he been kinda bad, as well. He needs to do more Bobby Dooley.

Phil is pretty funny, but when I'm up that late, Coast to Coast is the only choice.

Scair America is on that station now...it was much better as XTRA Sports 690/1150. I hope people aren't turning to 1150, expecting to hear Jim Rome and the like.

He did a show during the campaign -- the "guest" was a democratic consultant who promised that, when John Kerry became President, Kerry would never miss an opportunity to remind the American people that his black appointees were -- BLACK PEOPLE.

He said, "If John Kerry appoints someone like Condolezza Rice to his cabinet, every time he introduces her he'll say "And now we'll hear from Ms. Rice -- and by the way, she's black!"

The 'consultant' claimed that Bush was insulting black people by failing to make a bigger deal about the fact that his black appointees are black -- but that John Kerry won't make that mistake!

You can imagine the very-excited black listeners who called in to the show.

I have wondered how he has managed to stay on the air. A long time ago he seemed to be running out of variations on the same theme.

Phil is a genius with his voices. The quality of his material often does not match his talent.

Trying to wrap my mind around the concept that a show could be worse than coast to coast.

You could try what is called (I think) The John and Jeff Show, broadcast late in Boston on WTRK, the Fm talk station that carries Laura Ingraham. Dumb-s**t 20-somethings who apparently know nothing but bad TV shows and beer. It could be even worse. When I've found it by accident, I've never been able to stand it more than 15 seconds.

I'll say this for him, he has been one of the most outspoken defendents of the WOT.

His reasoned approach to the necessity of the war has been flawless.

I, personally, don't care for the humor, and I know he has a liberal stand on most matters, but when I've caught him discussing the war, I've been impressed.

I'm not attacking your preference, but what is it you enjoy about Coast to Coast? I can't STAND it but, until recently, didn't have a viable option in overnight radio.

I guess some of it is OK but a LOT of the people calling in really do strike me as kooks. I think a lot of them make up their "bigfoot," "psychic," "Ghost," and "I was abducted" stories. The Ghost-to-Ghost" and "Predictions" shows made me climb the walls.

Say it ain't so! The ghost-to-ghost and predictions are some of my favorite bits. The Coast to Coast audience is 50% looney tunes and the most entertaining thing is to turn the microphone over to them. I love it.

coast to coast is a great show, i grab my tin foil hat and listen to it when i cant sleep at night... Art Bell is great, except for his tirades on earth changes,,,George Noorey is almost as good, he is far more down to earth.

about 1997 or 1998 hendrie was really funny.

bobby dooley meeting her husband steve in a shopping mall in the valley, she's working in some hot dog stand, and he takes her into the exit to do her, and they get married and have kids.

the elderly people in a camarillo mobile home park with 6 fingers.

the old guy who's wife died and his kid fell out of a ferris wheel and interupts phil to take a leak in the toilet during the show.

the black guy in carson who scrubbed his kids with a wire brush to get them white, and this black woman calls in thinking he's for real, and yells....

bobby dooley who's afraid her kids will get aids so she's mixing up aids cocktail of medicines for them in the kitchen blender, and housewives are calling in frantically, begging her not to give the stuff to her kids.

those were good shows.

His real talent would be as a stand up comedian. Anyone that can hold a conversation with himself like Phil can has some kind of talent.

Fabulous!

I absolutely love Hendrie's show, so it's like having my cake and eating it too to have so many choices at the 7pm hour of my commute.

I can flip to conservatives Al Rantel on KABC or Ziegler on KFI, or if I just want to have some fun, Hendrie on KLAC. (Of course, if I'm feeling particularly masochistic, I can flip to Michael Savage on KRLA or Terri Gross on NPR.)

BTW, for anyone who happens to be in the mood now and then for standards (as I am), KLAC's old standards programming has been moved to 690AM.

Ziegler is a screamer, and he'll not piss off as many people there as late at night.
As soon as he gets going on his libertarian views, he might get lots of negative replies. We'll have to see.

Hendrie is a comic genius, but he was going off on too many rants, not doing enough comedy.

He was dropped here a few months ago.

I still wonder that he had an inexhaustible supply of clueless listeners who never get the joke.

You guys are being harsh. When I lived in So. California a couple years ago, I thought he was hilarious. Has his show really gone downhill in the last couple years?

Agreed. Doing his shtick for 5 nights, 2-3 hours a week was too much for his support. Hendrie need's only two nights a week and some support staff. Plus, Phil may be blue on the outside, but he's red on the inside.

That is because I received a breaking news email from the owner of the site...which is $36 a year. I didn't renew my subscription because I listen mostly to XM now.

Well, these changes are certainly not enough to make me tune in to that time slot again, but it's nice to see KFI shaking it up. What's the latest with their tower?

Talking to local folks about how easy it would be to put it back, they suggested that the inspectors and zoning will make it take some time.

Beyond that, I haven't looked into it real close.
That information about the tower to me was from near 3 weeks ago.

I like his show and it's made me split my sides laughing. Unfortunately I have his characters down pat so they're repetitious, boring now.

My favorite is Lloyd Bonafide the Korean war vet
