I’m sure you remember the row that took place a few years back when it was revealed that “Jersey Guys” Craig Carton and Ray Rossi weren’t exactly Jersey Guys.
It all blew up when that shivering pantywaist Carton ran away from the studio in fear because the state police held a presser and pictured a copy of his license plate, showing he was a “Pennsylvania” guy. Carton actually claimed people would try to hurt him, and left the state. What a punk. It was his second time running like a rabbit. The first time fled the studio was when he thought Dick Codey was going to kick his ass for taking cheap shots at Mrs. Codey. I wish Codey had.
Rossi is a guy who spent most of his life not from here, but moved here to take the Jersey gig. Not exactly a Jersey Guy himself.
Carton left and was replaced by a new “Jersey Guy,” Californian Casey Bartholemew.
The only Jersey connection I could see to the show was frequent guest and Gannett writer Bob Ingle. However I can’t tell you how Bob did because I refused to listen after the hypocrisy of a station whose tag line is “Not New York…Not Philadelphia” was revealed to be “not New Jersey, either.”
Now the faux New Jersey station has fired the faux Jersey Guys and are bringing back the old team of Deminski and Doyle – who have been DJs in Michigan for the past 12 years.
Still not “Jersey enough” for me to listen.
