Wow, some guys just have it rough. For whatever reason, 107.7 The End in Seattle took Andy Savage off their morning show. I could probably look it up, but I really don't have the patience right now. For a couple months after that, they would play hour-long themed blocks of music: 80s punk, new wave, grunge, etc. Finally, they brought in Marconi and Tiny for the morning program. About a month after that, The End changed formats and dropped them. Sucks!

At the time, they were on two radio stations, The End and a station in "Porkland" (their infantile name for Portland). Well, looks like they got booted from Portland as well for joking about the Berg beheading. D'oh!

Angry Cell Phone Customer Trashes Verizon Store
POSTED: 11:43 a.m. EDT May 14, 2004

FARGO, N.D. -- A man who said he was fed up with his cellular phone service went to a Fargo mall and started hurling phones across a store, striking an employee and causing more than $2,000 in damage, authorities said.

Jason Perala, 22, of Fargo, told The Forum newspaper that he planned only to yell at employees at Verizon Wireless.

"Then I just lost it," he said. "I just started grabbing computers and phones and throwing them. I just destroyed the place. ... I kind of regret that I did it, but I hope my message got across."

Police said Perala took off his shirt and put on safety glasses before throwing around computers, phones and other items.

One employee was struck in the shoulder by a phone before he and other workers dashed into an office, locked the door and called police, Sgt. Kevin Volrath said. Other businesses in the West Acres mall lowered their steel security gates during Thursday's incident.

Perala was arrested without incident and jailed on charges of felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor simple assault.
