Industry Challenge: Is Donald Sterling Audio Doctored?

0
Let's face it, all white people may not be racist but it certainly appears Donald Sterling is but how can he be racist (according to his grand Hair Club-ness)? He has black people working for him doesn't he? Shame on you and your thoughts! Perhaps it is YOU that are the racists? Clippers owner Donald Sterling is stating the audio tape that has now made the international rounds (knocking the Mimi and Nikko sex tape out of the number one position) is inaccurate.

NOW THAT’S INNOVATIVE: Donnie Simpson Looking for “Next Top DJ” for morning show

0
I guess Donnie said he's not going to hire another comedian, he wants somebody that he can maintain for a while (laugh) and won't leave his ass when an opportunity comes up. Help me understand , isn't that a natural progression? Once again, this is the problem with urban radio, shutting new talent out or making them remain subservient. Give me a station to program please. I'm starting to get real hungry. AT LEAST he is trying to breed new talent (I think) and I have to give him credit for that (I think).
