    I think he wants TRN to fire him...
is there something that's happened recently with him that causes you to say this?  or is it just the same 'ol same 'ol?

   His displeasure with TRN's "production" has become more vocal, blaming them for any and all technical glitches and also his "patriot radio" schtick is a direct shot at TRN's roster, particularly Rusty Humphries.

   And since March, he's bailed out of about 15 shows during hour one or two. Technical issues usually the excuse, but ill health has been the more recent angle.

Michael V-
Are you referring to the guy who did the "Flashbacks"?  I ran across quite a few of his podcasts over on Internet Archive. From listening to these Podcasts I became acquainted with the bullshit Phil was doing, until that point I had no idea he turned into a dick.

Then again I quit listening in '06 when he quit to do the TV show that failed.

The bad part of all this is there will never ever be another Phil Hendrie from the 1999-2006 period, same with Art Bell. Both are one of a kind.

i treat my vast archives of Phil Hendrie shows like gold, because they are in my book.

...Oh, and there are two Phil Hendrie streams on Shoutcast, at KBLO.

I've been really enjoying these all week, and now they're gone.
The long arm of Hendrie's lawyers must've caught up with them.

Both streams are up as I type this.   The Deuce has sometimes been down for days at a time, but Uno is usually running.  You can use CastRipper to record the feed all night as you sleep. Uno's url is http://199.16.186.42:8583  That way you can listen later and skip the bits you've already heard, as it does get repetitive.

Oh, yeah look at that.  They're up again.  Thanks.  I spoke too soon, didn't I?  I suppose that I just expect free Hendrie stuff to vanish rapidly, as it usually does.  Hopefully this one sticks around for a while.  I do love listening to the classic stuff,  I didn't hear that much of it the first time around.  And his 'new' show isn't as good.

The other reason the PHS used to be funnier than it is now is timing. He was at a very fortuitous confluence of events for that type of show to work. Talk radio was growing in popularity and cell phones were becoming ubiquitous.

Phil was on during drive time, first in Miami then L.A. and people would listen for short periods in their car, have a freaking aneurysm and call on their cell phone without listening long enough to get the joke.

At night the audience pool is not large enough and people aren't as pumped up and reactionary as they are while fighting traffic after the work day.

Someone needs to host a Phil Hendrie Show Stream.
All the old Phil Shows are great. Even some of the new ones.

         Can't agree with you about the new shows, Tim. I'm going to tell you quite honestly what I believe happened to Phil.
         There was a point some years back at which all of us regular listeners heard Phil begin to suffer genuine fits and anger. Actually, rage is the proper term--and I'm using the word in the clinical sense here. These fits began to grow both in intensity and frequency, until Phil literally sounded like a man possessed by a demon.
         Long time listeners will have heard Phil tell the story of how his father ended his days, "in a nuthouse" as Phil put it, driven to madness by an all-consuming rage that was based, as Phil has it, on his father's inability to control the world around him. Sound familiar?
         I have a familiarity with the details of certain types of congenital neurological disorders, including those passed, for example, from father to son. It is my belief that the same "rage virus", as I call it, borrowing the figurative term from the spate of recent zombie movies but being serious, that drove Phil's father mad and killed him finally caught up with Phil.

I think it all started when his marriage began to fall on the rocks. Also, the old show, there was sort of a community aspect to it. Like all the characters were from the same town, some knew each other. I remember the old website had a artists rendition of what the Hendrie City looked like. A Citizen's Auxiliary police car on a traffic stop. Herb Sewell strolling down the sidewalk talking with mother's and children. Lloyd Bonafide..The show has lost this imo and I believe Phil needs to let his producer go. Seems he is on a mission to orally satisfy Phil no matter the cost and is totally a yes man. Hendrie is still strong, don't three count him out yet.

i think hendrie needs to get back together with the people he had behind the scenes just before he left the air in 2006.  when you look at the in studio videos from that era, you learn just exactly how much those people really did contribute to the show.


however, none of this can overcome the fact that phil now seems to hate his fans, and i think that's the biggest problem facing his show today.

I can't believe I've never seen that picture before, does anyone have a screen shot of it?

Does it show Austin Amarka's Cabinet makers van with a load of stolen porno? Or Bobbie Dooley holding the Western Estates Springtacular at Ted's of Beverly Hills? HAHAHA

The production staff on the old Hendrie Show was great. And whoever picked the bumper music had good taste, Ministry, Lard, Tool, KMFDM were just a few of the great bands I'd hear.

I forget the guy's name but one of Hendrie's staff moonlighted at Costco and Phil did a role plying bit with Harvey Wireman and the Costco worker/Hendrie Staff person. Pure gold. It may have been Mike Shaffer but I'm not 100% sure.

   Well, Phil did an Art Bell bit on Friday Aug 12, about 20 minutes past the third hour. And it really fell flat. So much so that Phil said there would be no more Art bits. It was woefully short on material, Art and General Jonson Jameson sang "Papa Was A Rolling Stone"...kind of a one joke premise spead out over 5 minutes. Somewhat sad. Phil concluded the bit rather brusquely with the realization that Art Bell bits weren't as strong anymore, especially without Art around to goof on.

   And no Peenman Enterprises product!  :'(

i think the bits could still be strong... it's just that phil isn't.  idunno.  hard to blame him.  that's a tough job.

    What Phil does is the hardest job on the radio,IMO. And without callers it's often futile. I hate how Phil treats his fans, but I do feel some degree of sympathy for him, because his "genius" is/was terribly underappreciated.

agreed.  in a fair world, his talents would have made him a much bigger star.

   I tried to turn various relatives,co-workers,friends etc on to Phil for years and 90% of them "don't get" him. So if it's annoying for me, I can pnly imagine how it is for Phil.

  Stick up the ass types don't see the humor in a Herb Sewell or Doug Danger. When you have to explain why something is funny...just give up.

I heard the greatest Hendrie bit today, one that I had never heard before.  Somehow, a guy calls in to the show, and he thinks he's ordering a pizza.  15 minutes later, he's the most confused he's probably ever been.  Wish I had a recording of it, it was GOLD!

I still say some of the best Hendrie bits are when he starts cracking up while doing the bit. Such as the Jay Santos Operation Move bit, Bob Green's "Windows on the Boulevard" Table to Table bit, and more than a few Bobbie Dooley bits.

Hendrie's attempt to not laugh only gets me laughing all the more.

i recently lost my entire hendrie collection to a hard drive crash.  it makes me sick.  i want to go back and hear some of these old bits.  i guess i'll have to visit the interwebs and hit some torrents.


remember the bit where jay santos is trying to keep "regular" people away from parts of the beach that are adjacent to celebrity homes? 


or the classic margaret grey bit where she's running some organization to get penises for women so they can pee standing up and feel powerful like men, and she says something like, "phil, i'll never forget, it's always stuck with me, the day i sat next to agnes moorehead on her deathbed, when she looked me in the eyes and said, 'margaret, get me a penis.'"

I totally agree on this. I'm thinking..when Hendrie signed on with this new corporation..wondering if he got stuck with who the network wanted to put behind the boards? Similar to what Preimere tried doing with Art.
The crew he had assembled was Epic, I mean totally in tune for that type of show and what they did. And it showed in the quality of the show. This producer he has now..I cannot f'ing stand man. He has no idea.
I'm also not buying into this "not even callers" and "wrong time of day/night" bullshit. There are supposedly 15 million people that listen to Noory's dumb ass every night and he has plenty of idiot callers. Hendrie with proper crew could completely mindf*** the majority of assclowns that call Coast every night. The gullibililty for the average Coast listener is for another thread and debate though.
He does seem much happier with the staff he works with at KFI on the Saturday show. I will say that.

Funny he's back at KFI. I remember him calling them "your grandma's radio station" years ago when his show moved from KFI to some shitty sports talk station. I guess that's another thing that annoys me about him. He sometimes just says things without any truth or personal belief behind his words.

Remember when he went on and on about planning to buy a hybrid because of the expensive gas we're being sold by these "towel wrappers"? For DAYS he said his next car would be a hybrid when his lease expired, and he encouraged his audience to follow his example. Then, when he finally got his new car, he got a Jaguar. Well then.

I know what you mean when it comes to Hendrie putting his money where his mouth is. I recall him telling us back pre-'06 that he didn't care what his audience did with sound bits of his show. Almost like he was propagating getting the word out about his show. Now we have him doing the exact opposite issuing legal demands to youtube users?
I don't recall him regarding the hybrid car matter. I believe you though and it wouldn't be the first time Hendrie stepped on his own dick. I still love the guy though, just wish he'd get his shit together and have fun again...
First step...Fire Producer
Imagine Hendrie replacing Noory on Coast. That could be fun.
