Well, hi there. Welcome to "Notes from the (S)crapheap, one man's journey through unemployment. Bored yet? Ok, introductions are in order.
My name is Mitch Kelly, and I was recently cut loose from KWNR radio in las Vegas, where I had worked the past 12 years, 10 of those 12 years during the morning show that ran from 5am-10am. My employment there lasted until December 3rd or 2007, when I was pulled off the show at 9:30am and told they were letting me go.
"Too newsy" I was told. It's been more than a month and I still don't know what that means.
In spite of working with six different co-hosts, five different program directors, and three different market managers, it was all of a sudden decided that I didn't fit in. A nationwide search is now going on for my replacement.
Nicole Simpson's killer will be found in less time.
Anyway.....I decided this little blog would be a nice idea to pass the time...or it could be the worst idea I've ever had. Back at KWNR, I was told not to blog my thoughts on things, but to post, you know, "Pop culture nuggets". Bears that bowl, a baby who can burp "Stairway to Heaven", important stuff like that. I tried for about two weeks before becoming rabidly disinterested.
So, this page will go toward furthering what I originally wanted my personality page to be. You won't agree with everything on it (even though you should), but what goes up stays up. I doubt my entries will be that lengthy because just typing this one out has my back killing me.
Next time up, a look at what happened prior to 12/3, and my thanks to those listeners and friends who have somehow found me sitting on the (S)crapheap, rubbing my dog's belly.
I promised my wife I'd unload the dishwasher tonight and she'll be home in 10. Gotta go.
