Best Music Radio Program - 2012
Bob's Scratchy Records
Bob Reuter takes over the KDHX (88.1 FM) studio on Magnolia Street every Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. His show — Bob's Scratchy Records — is insanity: Strange noises from long-forgotten slabs of vinyl with the host howling over the music whenever the mood strikes him. He tells stories and gives reports on his half-century of time served in the St. Louis rock & roll fun house, and the truths are far stranger than the lies. But the through line is the music — without his impeccable taste for rowdy songs of all stripes, the show would be a sideshow. Instead, it's the best sermon in town for any true believer in rock & roll.
This is the best St. Louis has to offer? You're kidding, right? I listened last week and I couldn't even get through an hour of it. The self-impressed host is an ass and his mumbling sidekick doesn't seem to know how to respond half the time. The gimmick is thatit's on vinyl? Well, whoop de do, half the oldies shows in America are on vinyl. Like this is a big deal? The music was good but wasn't worth having to get through the host's "howling" (I think braying is a better choice, thanks airycanary). If this is the best St. Louis has to offer maybe I should move to another city.
He's a horse's ass who likes to hear himself bray. Ever see his photos? There's a reason why they're full of headless young women with hardly any clothes on - the guy's a pervert. Unfortunately the editors of RFT seem to like that sort of thing, so folks who actually deserve to win this award aren't getting a mention. Hey, RFT! Bob's a dick, so stop kissing his ass!
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks he's a buttwipe. I guess the people who voted were drunks and under 30's who dont know any better, cause that's his audience. I'm glad Pat Wolfe got an award though, I like his show.
Bob is a "charming" guy who likes to refer to African American people with the "n" word and who thinks telling women he wants to pee in their mouths is funny. If this is the best of St. Louis I'd say we're a pretty pathetic town.
