Part 3 It needs to be pointed out again....even though Esparza's bile-filled attacks were over the top, Rick Jackson said the separation was NOT due to anything he he said on the air. Yet, I think it is fair game to ask that question.

Hey something I'm missing here...If Esparza can talk about his substance abuse on air, why am I taking "potshots" or putting out "innuendo" if I do. You Mikey fans need to do better. This was a newsworthy event and these topics were all germane to this very peculiar event. And trust me, there were rumors and innuendo out there that was not used for this story.

And although I think Mikey's legacy as a rating's earner (or not) are appropriate to bring up as he exits the station, I am certain bad ratings could not have been a legal reason for Lincoln Financial Media to terminate his contract.

PART 2 Yes it is true that the Mikey facebook page has 16000 friends. But the arbitron ratings are what counts.

Hate to tell you M1_12 but just because 91X had a commercial free weekend does not give Esparza license to through those slurs out there. That was a degenerate rant (audio files exist) that there is no excuse for. Even if Mikey is your personal radio savior, you just don't do stuff like that.

Regarding "taking sides" not sure what that was all about. I spoke to Rick Jackson and would have loved to speak with Mr. Esparza. If it seems like I was repelled by what Esparza said about Garrett Capone, well, I guess you might be right on that. If you are Don Imus you cant say "nappy headed hos" and if your Rush Limbaugh you can't call a lady a "slut." Heck, here in San Diego you can't even call a woman a "sasquatch." Do you get that? If you Esparza can get away with because he tells us all how Christian he is....don't think so.

To Mr Sanford, yes that was a direct response from him to my statement to him that there was a lot of speculation that substance abuse was thought by many to be cause of the separation. I think any reasonable person would think that those statements and facts are germane to each other. Hence the question to Jackson, and hence his answer. Do you get it Jay?

Regarding the Fox TV R Factor...They reported that The Mikey Show was the most popular in San Diego because they had, like, 700,000 votes. Who's to say 10 people couldn't 7,000 times. You get the idea.

The "speculation" was an honestly labeled statement that many in the industry have said over and over. The Mikey show certainly had its fans, but that the mix of the show an the station was a huge mistake. There was no "speculation or inuendo"...it was a statement that you can accept or reject. It is a verifiable fact that 949's overall rating are lower since January 2010 when Mikey came on board. Whoever said that above that Mikey took the ratings up is misinformed. The most recent overall ratings show that 91X is in 14th place, Rock 105 in 16th and 949 23rd. On what planet does that not support the other DJ's comment?

But besides that, here are some SPECIFIC MORNING RATINGS from a few months ago that maybe you were not aware of:

September 2011, AM Drive (M-F 6am-10am)

Men and women 18-34 91X 4th place Rock 105 14th place FM 94/9 24th place

Men & women 25-54 91X 6th place Rock 105 20th place FM 94/9 21st place

Keep in mind 949 is owned by an insurance company who would not terminate an employee contract unless they had a good reason. Jackson said Esparza is no longer under contract even though he was inked until December. If it was a mutual decision, I would imagine both sides would come out and say something. 949 won't talk specifics and Mike has been silent.

Mikey numerous times on the air talked about his past with substance abuse. I think any reasonable person would bring that up in a situation like this. Jackson said it was not the case. So why the bitch?

Hey guys, if you want to read another article that came out today about this please read http://www.nctimes.com/entertainment/columnists/dotinga/dotinga-mikey-makes-an-exit-from-fm/article_b95105a9-2004-5ed9-9b03-61f0d291a900.html

Writer's name is Randy Dotinga. Are you now going to spend your daytime hours calling him an idiot? He pretty much says the same thing as we did.

Also, regarding the R Factor, the thing was set up by brackets over several weeks, like March Madness. Anyway, you could vote once a week online per email address, but if you bothered to create 50 email addresses you could vote 50 times per week per person. And if you got the other four members of the team to do the same thing, you got yourself a nice pool of votes.

It was a great way for Fox 5 to get radio stations to get their listeners to connect with Fox 5. Good work Fox 5! Mikey won nothing for winning that "contest." It certainly didn't help him keep on the air.

I agree with David 100%. Went there years ago and it was truly the worst brewery I experienced in all of SD County as to choice and taste. They were being somewhat experimental back then, I recall a Black Pepper beer and a Caramel beer and a ginger type beer. I found the flavors off and never returned. The owner was nice and it seemed it truly was a passion that evolved out of his garage to this space. I just think they needed main stay type beers to hook followers then play around with different profiles.

BigAir, I apologize for the confusion. The man and his friends left the bar at approximately 1am and were at the 7/11 by 1:30am when this all happened. My fault for not being clear on that point. Thx - dH

With all that effort, you should've just returned those carts back to CVS yourself.

Another indication that most of these breweries are essentially operating beer bars rather than "tasting rooms". I've even experienced being asked to pay a cover charge just to enter a certain brewery in Carlsbad due to a band playing. I laughed at the door guy and proceeded to the next brewery a stones throw away. I love craft beer and I love live music, but in my opinion the lines have gotten a bit blurry between what type of business some of these breweries truly are.

This place is an eye sore and I will not miss it. It was never meant to be a business but rather an experiment. Seems like the experiment is over.

I believe in sharing the roads, but one thing cyclists need to keep in mind - exercising your full rights as a cyclist could be to the detriment of your own lifespan. The vehicle will always win.
