'Radiochick' is by, but not for, women
It attracts listeners and hate mail -- all of which, the hostess says, is from women...
Ok this is the 2nd story on the radio chick in as many weeks. This on I found at The Chicago Sun-Times (from the Associated Press) is not the most positive.. or is it.. This Radio Chick was a NYC icon in FM radio a few years back, many in NYC have found her show on Sirius, and now The Radio Chick show is getting noticed all over the USA. I personaly like her show on Sirius 148, and yes I'm not a woman.. Here are some clips from the Aug 9th Associated Press story:
NEW YORK â€“ Leslie Gold wants to be known as the only chick a guy wants to listen to for four hours, and she'll do just about anything to achieve that goal.
The bawdy host of The Radiochick Show on Sirius satellite radio frequently invites female guests to strip in the studio and leads such segments as "20 Questions with a Hooker." She dishes advice to male callers on a variety of relationship issues, such as how to cheat on their girlfriends without getting caught.
But she's quick to point out that her show, which airs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dallas time weekdays on Sirius channel 148, isn't all about sex.
She recounts a "serious" discussion with sidekick Chuck Nice and producer Paul "Butchie" Brennan a couple months ago about the Terri Schiavo right-to-die case â€“ then speculating what songs the brain-damaged Florida woman might have had in her iPod. (Among their guesses: "You Keep Me Hangin' On.")
"Just when you think we've gone serious, we make sure we get good and disrespectful," says the 40-something Ms. Gold, who won't reveal her exact age.
The Radiochick has riled her share of listeners. She sometimes gets hate mail, which always comes from women, she says. Many get offended because she refers to herself as a chick and talks about her body.
Ms. Gold made her reputation on terrestrial radio, but "I kept getting fired even though I had great ratings. Some places, I got fired twice," she says with a laugh and the confidence of someone who has moved on to bigger things.
