Calling a local politico a “snatch” is certainly something I can respect. I was lucky enough to just tune in just as he said it. I normally listen to motivational tapes in the morning mixed in with disco & hip-hop but a friend called me and suggested I take a listen. The moment was classic because, from what I could tell, Dare’s staff was laughing along with him up till that point but once the word “snatch” was put into play everybody but Dare was incredibly quiet.
For at least a half an hour the highly rated and widely celebrated Dare tore into Stackhaus with a vengeance that he usually reserves for child molesters.
The disagreement was simple, and as Hearne wrote, mostly overplayed.
Stackhaus made a stink about the aftermath of Rockfest and Dare disagreed. Then one of Dare’s underlings reported that Stackhaus not only wouldn’t take calls from Dare’s show but “didn’t care what Johnny Dare or his fans thought” and that gave way to some truly genius insults.
One of these days radio will contribute to their own self destruction and start clipping these golden moments in mp3 format but as of now this legendary rant is just one of many reasons why Dare is the most successful radio personality in town and his show is ALWAYS worth a listen.
He exposed class differences, stood up for his fans and took apart a minor league former Council Lady and current Parks Board Member. For once a Kansas City Media Catfight lived up to the hype and provided some classic entertainment.
