Jackie and Bender - stalking Kiss 106.1 listeners 
14th-Nov-2008 09:42 am
So, I know this is a weird request, but I'm going crazy without knowing the answer, and I hope I can stalk it out on here.

Does anyone here listen Kiss 106.1 in Seattle? The Jackie and Bender show? Apparently today Bender was asked to leave and put on suspension because of something he said in the last week (two?) or so, and he wouldn't apologize on the air about it. I've heard a lot of people called in and complained, but no one on the show knows what he said.

I REALLY want to know - I listen to their show as I'm driving to work early in the morning, and it makes me lol when nothing else will because it's so early. If he gets fired, I am going to be so freaking sad.

Also - does anyone remember Chris and Dana from the same station? And how they got fired for something Chris said? Anyone know what that was about either?

*Please* please please approve this - I've googled it and had no luck, and I can't take the freaking suspense.

If you don't know, do you have theories?

Haha, I'm so glad I'm not the only person that wants to know!

:( I moved so I can't listen to them anymore but I did some stalking and Sammi's blog said Jackie said he said something about a dead celebrity?

I was listening to their show and I remember Jackie mentioning that. Apparently they both had another show prior to their show on Kiss (I think in another city), and he made a comment about a dead celebrity that offended people, and they all called in. His boss got ticked, so he went on the air and apologized, but Jackie said afterward he felt like the station had thrown him under a bus and not supported him, so he would never apologize like that again (hence his current trouble).

I'm in Tucson and we have the John Jay and Rich Show, which goes to Phx now too... this sound EXACTLY like what they did on April Fool's Day. Exactly! They made the whole thing up and asked people to call in pretend they were upset. They set the while things up at like 5 am. No help, but yeah...

Awww man - I really hope that's what it is, although it sucks that it's not April Fool's Day...because that would make a ton more sense than if they were just doing it randomly.

Course...it is Jackie and Bender...so I suppose I can't put it past them.

OMG I wanted to know this too. I was just talking about it with my mom earlier.

Haha, I would not turn off the show when it happened - and then I told my mom too, and she started listening, and both of us were trying to guess.


Sammi's blog says we might know more on Monday.

I feel like maybe I am too invested in this, haha.

I have an update! I figured there were other folks on here that wanted to know, so here's the link:

Boxcar Cadavear gets points for being the closest to the truth (I think - assuming the link really does explain everything).
