Weird Shit Going On Up In NoCal

Driving around yesterday morning, I turned on the radio to Live 105 (the alternative music, KROQ-wannabe station up here)...

...and KROQ's Kevin and Bean are doing the morning show up here, too. WTF?

Wikipedia confirmed it, apparently it's been happening since earlier this year.

At first I just started laughing, that San Francisco (which also doesn't have a real newspaper in addition to not having a real MLB team) couldn't even support its own DJs, and instead has to pipe them in from the real California. But now I'm thinking, how are Kevin and Bean able to do their LA-based show without sounding LA-based? Have the Los Angeles references been excised altogether, so that other markets (which apparently include Fresno, Reno, Boise, and Iowa City) don't notice that their morning DJs aren't locals?

(And yes, I know Bean lives in Seattle so he isn't even LA-based.)

It's like Kevin and Bean Muzak piped into SF?

K&B have been syndicated for a while now, so their show has had a bit of a national slant. I did notice that when Live 105 picked them up, I started hearing them promoting SF shows and comedy gigs. Kind of annoying.

there wasn't even a warning, I turned on the radio one morning expecting to hear the normal K& B wannabees and then it was actually them. I was pretty stoked, but I can't imagine Live 105 listeners understand all of their bits (afroline, the ringing bell, or the Kind of Mexico)

unrelated, if you are in SF consider paying a visit to Timmy Lincecum. He recently moved in around the corner from my girlfriend's parents house in Pacific Heights. I see him all the time. I've always wanted to offer him Taco Bell, you know so he'd finally have some runs.

That's rich, OZ.

Tell Timmeh to WASH HIS HAIR! And cut it.

I'm a dumbass I get them on aol radio, a little hangover. Maybe a little drunk still. Does it count as cheating if you put peanut butter on your balls and let your dog lick it.
