It starts Thursday-Thursday-Thursday!


The reborn “B94” WBZW-FM (93.7) finally gets its morning show this week.

“Buck Head and Bubba” start work at 6 a.m. tomorrow. (They’ll sell you the whole seat, but you’ll only need … THE EDGE! Oh, sorry … “The Edge” got sold, too.)

Anyway, this is Bubba’s third tour of duty on mornings at the “B” — he was previously part of the “JohnDaveBubbaShelley” and “DaveBubbaBrianShelley” morning shows (shows that were so exciting they didn’t even take time to put in spaces!)

Buck (er … do you prefer Mr. Head?) comes to Pittsburgh via stations in Tampa, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Detroit and Dallas. He was most recently host of “The BuckHead Show” at Clear Channel’s “Z100” KKRZ-FM (100.3) in Portland, Ore. According to published reports, he left the station after being bumped aside on ‘KRZ by the syndicated “T-Man Show.”

With “Kobe” recently added to afternoon drive, B94 finally has personalities in key dayparts … though clearly the arrival of a real morning show is the most important piece.

(P.S. to CBS Radio Pittsburgh’s FM cluster: Hey, how come we don’t rate a press release of our own? PBRTV has 4,000 readers per week, and yet we had to sponge from someone else. I know Eric and I don’t have Adrian McCoy‘s cute dimples, but c’mon, we’re not that awful: pbrtv at aol dot com or jtogyer at gmail dot com.)
