Mischke Fired


448 views

Very odd postscript: the day after the CD release bash at O'Gara's, Tommy was fired by am 1500 KSTP. No-compete clause means no work in radio locally for some time - Merry Christmas!

The local Mischke cult has been up in arms, yet an Atlantic Monthly writer is also publicly mourning.

Long time advertisers have pulled their accounts from KSTP am. "Good ol' St. Paul" as Mischke used to daily

say - but it's true. I saw Tommy last week, after he'd run to RF Moeller Jewler to "drop off a box of CD's."

That's where they're for sale (so far) - at the jewler's! And the Spectacle Shop. God knows where else.

You can just tell...the people devoted to Tommy will never buy their jewelry or glasses or mortgages from anyone else other

than these ex-KSTP businesses. Then they'll make their heirs abide by the same decree.

It's like a modern day Christmas-spirit story cause these businesses are going to take a hit by pulling their accounts (KSTP will too of course)

in the economy, right before Christmas. But the accounts were pulled because of the way it went down - no farewell, no nothing. Gads, I ended up being one of the last callers of the last show, creepy in retrospect. I called cause they were discussing O'Gara's which we'd just played some 12 hours previous.

There are businesses who honor friendship and loyalty above...what, the bottom line? For these advertisers, money is not the bottom line.

Tommy was at KSTP for some 18 years.

Yeah, he'll get the CD online, too, or someone else will for him.

There's a hilarious video he and Moeller put out yesterday - I suggest you check it out before Rules are invoked and it's pulled

Mark Moeller and Tommy did a lot of radio ads, they'd be yelling at each other and it was funny plus RF Moeller sold a lot of jewelry.

I think more gigs will be coming because now Mischke's gotta make a (new) living. Guess who else does, too? We shall see.
