Be warned, this post isn’t going to have my normal style. What you are about to read is raw and unedited. It won’t offend unless you think Pee pee Hole No-Nos are offensive and get your panties in a wad by being young Shi’thead of the Dumbass of the Day.
Drake and Zeke were the afternoon guys on Memphis’ Rock 103. I lived about an hour from good ole Mempho until I got launched out of the Corps’ mortar tube and landed in Lejeune. The afternoons riding around in the old man’s truck listening to D&Z were great and generally laughing until it hurt. Now the guys have become victim to the monster of Clear Channel.
Yes, my beloved Drew and Zippy are off Rock 103. The fat, lazy, corporate bastards have reared their ugly heads and pushed yet another piece of talent off the market. For years Drake and Zeke have been loyal WEGR employee and then all of a sudden they are gone. I’m really not sure how long ago that happened, but it stings. Bad.
Drake and Zeke are good peeps. Dad was over in Memphis one afternoon and saw Drake at a remote. Dad stopped and called me to tell me he got to talk to Drake. I was jealous. So Dad handed him the cell phone. Rock on. Then he got bumper stickers for me. One DZ logo and another logo signed by Drake. Good stuff.
Rumors are they are landing over at 98.1. As of now, Zeke is throwing down during the mornings. I can only hope Drake will head over and soon. I’ll be writing the guys begging for new autographed goods without the Rock 103 label.
UPDATE: Talked to the old man and Drake is apparently under a competition clause in his contract. Perhaps by the summer The Max’s morning show will be Drake and Zeke.
