Hearne on the Street: Mad Max, Skid, Basse, DVP, Shooting Star at Conspiracy

About last night’s “roast” of legendary KY102 personality Max Floyd at Larry Sells new Conspiracy

As roasts go it was something of a snoozer – too many warm and fuzzies – not enough cutting edge.

“It wasn’t really a roast and there was nobody that was funny,” says roaster Craig Glazer of Stanford’s. “A lot of it was people talking about their own lives in radio as it related to Max – they didn’t understand the concept of a roast.”

Net result:

“Nobody roasted him, nobody,” Glazer says. “I was the closest. I thought people would do the ‘old guy’ stuff but nobody did anything. It was all inside jokes. I mean, it was just amazing that people that were in the entertainment business didn’t understand the concept of a roast.”

Did anybody lay a glove on Max?

“No really, only in story telling,” Glazer says. “Like, ‘Remember when we had hookers in the pool?’ I mean, it was very, very nice. They kidded him but it was all historic. It was more on an honorarium than a roast.”

Former KY sales sleuth Debbie Van Pelt – or as they say in the trade DVP – was on hand for the blessed event.

“One of the guys who is going to roast Max was going to talk about Max and some other woman and about 20 of us are supposed to stand up.”

The joke being?

“That Max had a lot of ladies.”

Was DVP among their number?

“Oh my god, no – god no,” she laughs. “He was flirtatious.

    My wife and I attended last night’s
    tribute to Max Floyd at the Uptown.
    It was obviously not the same event
    Craig Glazer attended.
    Come top think of it, he was one of
    the roasters. Probably the unfunniest
    of the evening.
    Was it a love fest for Max? Sure it
    was. It was meant to be just that.
    Marty Wall was great. So was John Hart,
    Traci Wilde, Jack Poessinger,Randy
    Raley, Stan Andrews and Paul Fredrocks.
    Ross Regan gave an interesting inight
    into the history of the station and
    Max’s involvement. And having competing
    Donna Baker’s perspective on what Max
    has meant to the local broadcast
    community was a real class act.
    Not a single dud in the bunch last night.
    Special kudos to Skid Roadie for
    keeping things moving even though some
    of the presenters didn’t understand
    their allocated time limits.
    We thought it was a great evening with
    well produced visual elements.
    Congratulations to all who had a hand
    in pulling it off.
    And to you Hearne you just can’t get
    enough of putting anything and anyone
    connected with KY102 or 99.7KY–down.
    Note to Glazer; you should be ashamed
    of the comments you AGAIN made about
    Max. Can’t you just once keep your big mouth

    Hearne I was at the event. Had a nice time. Spoke to Glazer, he said he liked Max very much, and it was a large attended event. I think you took some of his comments out of context, no it wasn’t a traditional roast, but everyone enjoyed stories about Max, including Glazer. Who was funny and seemed to like the event as did we all.

    Hearne why do you do this to me? First off, I am so sorry to anyone reading this thinking I was putting Max Floyd down, he is a great guy it was a nice event, and I was honored to be invited to speak. ALL I meant was it was not a tradional roast…and Hearne, I just didn’t have ‘wild story’ on Max, thats all, I’m sure he had great times and wild events, I just wasn’t there. He and I didn’t hang out, I was just a guest on his show.

    So to Sean and Cherish, you are right, I am sorry Hearne wrote this, cause it only upsets those who worked hard on this event and it was nice. Likely I was the least funny and again, I like Max alot, he is true legend in this biz and a very nice person. Max I am sorry Hearne did this attack, and it was a great show for most deserving person.

    Glazer, glad you cleared that up. I sat behind you we talked. You said it was a fun night and how Max had always been great with you and your comics on the show. True it was a stroll down memory lane, but that was fun for all us older radio folks. So I agree Glazer is getting a tough rap here, he seemed to like the show and surly likes Max Floyd.

    Hearne, quit using Glazer to do your dirty work, you never liked Max or his costars. You wrote bad things about them in the Star. So he’s not Johnny Dare, big deal, he did alot for radio and I loved their show. He made a difference to many of us. What did they do to make you hate them so much?

    My quotes from Craig were accurate and not out of context. Read em again if you want. Over the years I wrote many positive things about KY102 and 99.7KY. However when the station ran out of gas and was on its last legs, I documented its fall. Simple as that. There is a reason they are not on the air anymore and it has nothing to do with what was written in the Kansas City Star.

    You are a jerk. You lack class. You said mean things about Max before, and then the night of the event. I find you blaming Hearne preposterous. You are a white trash jealous guy and we are all so weary of you. Let Max go out in style.

    Craig Glazer is white trash. One day they will roast him and talk about how many STD’s he has from dating nasty stripper whores. He has no class and never will. Who invited him to the roast anyway?

    This comment section has turned in to a roast of sorts. Except there’s no Don Rickles, and you can’t really have a roast without Don Rickles. Maybe that’s what was missing from the Max roast.

    Hey haters, Glazer already said he liked Max and loved the show, he said sorry on this blog, if anyone may be jealous its you guys for jumping the guy, he seemed sincere. By the way he has been roasted cause my sister was there. So you guys are going a little overboard.

    This is my first time on this site. My dad sold Craig Glazer his first car. I have met him at his club and out and about. I’m not saying he’s mister clean, but folks he’s a pretty nice guy. Never bad mouthed anyone. I liked Ky, and Max, read this, think its all in fun. Glazer clearly cares for your guy Max. He’s probably not jealous, ever been on google, theres like more articles about Glazer then most anyone in KC. His book,movies and so on, so likely not a jealous guy. Hey so he jumps hot young chicks, who wouldn’t. I’m not his lawyer, but on this site he gets more crap then anyone, except Hearne. I’m ageeing with this writter above my comment. If nothing else Glazer and his dad are damn entertaining. Just for the record, was at his club last year, saw Dave Coulier, on the wall of his club was a photo of MAX FLOYD, enough said guys.

    Man, love to hate on the ‘Glaze’ read his book, King of Sting.AWESOME. Can’t wait for movie. Did not listen to Max or his folks, too young I guess. Sounds like my boy was just funnin. “White Trash” maybe, cause I do hear ‘Glaze’ on Johnny Dare, 98.9 The Rock. He’s a funny dude, I lov Johnny, you rock on brother man.

    Jojo. You have no credibility and you are a coward. Until you race your comments have no value so STFU. You are a pretender. Keep deleting.

    Sorry I missed the Max roast.

    Sorry you missed it too Hearne. Your typical hearsay column. When are you going to get more than 4 sources of information? How long you been doing this? That’s 1 source acquired about every 5 years.

    Johnny Dare can’t stand in the shadow of Max Floyd. Was a listener when Max and KY came on the air in 1974 and was loyal to the last broadcast of 99.7KY. Purely my opinion, but the best, funniest, most entertaining team ever on radio was Max, Tanna, and Moffit. I was greatly disappointed that i could not attend the roast, but I am curious if any video was recorded and if it will be offered for sale.

    Hearne never passes up an opportunity to plug Glazer. Here we have an article about Max Floyd and he turns it into a Glazer story. What is it with Hearne and this lowlife bullshitter?

    Hearne, just to expound a tiny bit. Max’s age isn’t a problem for me. But, Max is married, and I never dated people I worked with.
    I guess the “20 women standing up bit” happened while you and I were talking about it, so we missed it!! He-he.
    I loved the roast & seeing friends from the past!
