The Mighty Has Fallen, Long Live the Mighty

As many of you may know, the Mighty Morning Show on Indie 103.1 fm in Los Angeles has been cancelled and beloved host Dicky Barrett has been fired. He did not leave to pursue other interests, he was fired.

While it is no secret that radio is a business and they are only in it for the money, the MMS was a solid performer with good ratings. It doesn’t make any sense.

Sadly, we should probably boycott all Indie sponsors since they are part of the corporate beast and deserve what they get by aligning themselves with cowards.

The following is a list of sponsors to voice your displeasure to and to avoid in the future, courtesy of the fine folks in the Adolescents."
