City & State or ZIP Tonight, this weekend, May 5th...
City & State or ZIP

We have moved! Move with us!

Funny. I’m currently selling my home and moving into another one.

Effectively, that’s what we’re doing here, too. My new Radio & TV Talk home is now at

http://www.accessatlanta.com/weblogs/radio-tv-talk/

Please move to that URL. All my old entries going back to March, 2009 on this current platform (Wordpress) shall remain for now.

The biggest difference (besides the look) is the fact you now have to register to comment. The good news there is hopefully the trolls will go away.

To begin, click the registration link at the top of the COMMENTS section. Once you are registered, you can comment as many times as you like on any of our stories or blogs, as long as you follow our guidelines for commenting.

It’s a relatively new piece of software so there are many issues that hopefully will be dealt with. Please email me at rho@ajc.com if you have any suggestions on how we can make it more user friendly.  The hope is that this new software will be more compatible with mobile devices, which is where more and more folks are reading this blog anyway.

I’ve been blogging since 2004. This is my fourth blog software platform. Change is constant!

Join my Facebook fan page and Twitter. Oh, and Google +, too!

Good luck with the move to the new house, Packing up the old place isn’t so bad, it’s all the unpacking at the new place that can be a real pain!

Boooo!

The trolls never go away, they just adapt.

Good luck with the real move.

Uh, the sports bloggers...

…(Mark Bradley, Schultz, etc) started with the “comment registration” stuff last week – and today, their whole system is down as far as logging in to COMMENT AFTER registering last week and commenting everyday this week…what’s up with that?

Progress – ain’t it great?

Too bad.

The trolls are what keep things interesting in my view. When it’s all lovey-dovey it gets old real fast.

****Po’Diddly**** Yep, “Trolls” make the world go round. Think how boring it would be without them. The AJC is like my life(or I75), it’s always under construction, with many detours!

Hey Rodney, the new site has lost the comment box and all the comments. Guess we’ll be on the old site tonight.

This new format goes hand in hand with my new screen name. So far, it’s a “train wreck” !!!!!!

Is this where we’re blogging tonight?

I do not see a way for me to register? There’s no comment box on the new site? What am I missing???

Rod goodbye and good luck with the new troll-free software. I have really enjoyed your blog. I’m no troll but I don’t “register” so I won’t be joining you on the new sanitized platform.

May have been smarter to not move on a day AI is scheduled.

Dierdre, nice to know I’m not the only one w/o a comment box on the new site.

Deirdre

Comments are shut down on the new site, they’ve been that way since this afternoon. Not sure Rodney knows.

So, let’s all meet here for the show tonight. There’s plenty of room on this thread.

Deirdre

Rodney didn’t have a choice unfortunately. And this blog is acting weird, as you can see.

Deirdre

Sure hope tonight’s show has some talent

Pitchy

I hope so too. Last night was colossal disappointment (for me, that is).

First contestant sounds good! Nice start.

Pitchy

Let’s count how many times the word “awesome” will be used tonight.

Ok, Minaj just lied.

Deirdre

Rodney set up a thread on the new site but the comments are closed. I sent him an email

The little blonde was good.

Hope the blog will post better tonight than last night.

Got my baked fish, cauliflower, broccoli and glass of wine.

Am I in the right place????

Awesome – 2x

Deirdre

Yep, this is where we’re hangin tonight

Pitchy

I like the 2nd performance…nice voice.

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013
8:14 pm

Waaaay over doing it if you ask me

Nana

She would look better without the nose ring…….ugh

Pitchy

8:15 pm

OMG, Minaj pulled out a mirror. So tacky.

DanJ

I like Kiara not sure on the spelling but she was good. Didn’t care for the nose ring though.

Pitchy

8:17 pm

What “magnetic” things have she seen today. She’s the 3rd performer. That girl is a trip, a hot mess, she’s going to trip over her own wigs!!!

Nana

3 yeses, sorry Nicki you are so over ruled.

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013
8:18 pm

The pretty blonde girl should escape while she can

Pitchy

January 17th, 2013
8:18 pm

Did this trick just say she said no because they’re wearing the same eye color.

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013
8:19 pm

They don’t edit this in order, Pitchy..she may have already seen 20 people that we didn’t see.

Nana

January 17th, 2013
8:20 pm

OMG!!!! All that pink has to go. How tacky!!!!!!!!

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013
8:20 pm

Nicki is seriously annoying me

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013
8:21 pm

Check please! Keith made me laugh!

Pitchy

January 17th, 2013
8:22 pm

Oops, I apologize, shouldn’t have said “trick.”

Nana

8:22 pm

I know they have to get in the commericals, but come on, AFTER each audition??????

Pitchy

January 17th, 2013
8:23 pm

Ok, good point, Deirdre.

Nana

January 17th, 2013
8:26 pm

After tonight’s show, I will try to register at the new site.

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013
8:27 pm

Pitchy, I think Nicki is trying to be deliberately irritating. Doesn’t she realize there will be plenty of opportunity to eliminate everyone who doesn’t live up to their possibilities?

Nana

He hurts my throat!

Pitchy

Dang, his vocal chords have to be damaged.

Deirdre

January 17th, 2013

Gotta love the rocker!!!!!!

Pitchy

January 17th, 2013
8:30 pm

Deirdre, she may not care. No fear, she won’t be back after this season.

Andi

I just got caught up and see everyone’s on here. I’ll work on trying the other site later.

DanJ

Ditto Deirdre!

Pitchy

I also think Minaj is going to bring the worse out of Randy.

Nana

Was the back of his jeans torn?
