Larry Wachs and Eric Von Haessler have signed on for three more years with Rock 100.5. The pair have been together on and off as part of the “Regular Guys” radio team in Los Angeles and Atlanta for about 15 years.

I hear “Southside” Steve Rickman is still in talks but both sides expect a deal to be made. (Rickman has been part of the team for many years at 96rock but was only promoted to a true “Regular Guy” at Rock 100.5). Producer Tim Andrews, who also became an official “Regular Guy” after the Rock 100.5 version of the show started, has only been under contract for less than a year, but I believe he has no desire to go anywhere else anytime soon.

Gary Lewis, who is regional vice president for Cumulus Atlanta (which operates Rock 100.5 and Q100), said he is happy with his morning show and expects they’ll be around awhile though he declined to be more specific.

Von Haessler was off today because of illness.

So Larry and Eric aren’t running for President in 2012? No one can do worse than the clown currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Vote Larry & Eric in 2012!

Larry – President
Eric – Vice President
Steve – Secretary of State
Tim – Secretary of Treasury
Kimmer – Secretary of Defense
Rodney Ho – White House spokesman
Biden – Janitor at Walmart

I, for one, am not a huge fan of music first thing in the morning and avoid local tv news at all costs. I love listening to TRG for the ‘news’ since they often just say exactly what I’m thinking about a story anyway. Some of their segments can be tuned up or replaced (ie., Oxygen Financial, George Stein, etc.) but overall it’s a great show.

i love kim

Larry is great adding his input during Eric’s newscast. Plus the news and comments they give are pretty much spot on with the way I think.

The humor and political dialogue of the show is too much for your tiny brain to handle….what kinda of music do you like? Lady Ga-Ga? Winger?

Used to enjoy them on 96 rock. Rock 100 they should like the bitter progeny of Glen Beck and Sarah Palin. Just not funny anymore.

Mike Hunt…yeah, I’m sure that’s your real name.

I enjoy the music they play after these guys go off the air…I have no problem with your listening to them. I’m not the judge around here. Apparently, you think you are.

Have a good day.
