Well folks, it had to happen. Hoagland's monster ego surfaces and kills any chance he had of making decent radio. The scenario is quite simple. Hoagland gets a producer recommended by Art Bell. Rossy (the aforementioned producer) keeps the Hoagland ego in place albeit temporarily and books some engaging guests. Hoagland surprises everyone by turning out to be a decent interviewer. He then tells his producer that it is not ok to hang up on Hoagland to take a call from his Mother. Because Hoagland now owns his life and nobody (even his Mother) should be put before Hoagland. Rossy (who Hoagland refused to pay) then quit. Hoagland goes into meltdown...............
Nobody believes for one minute that you tried an experiment. This was a full on attempt at fooling your audience. Tim Russ will be ashamed when he finds out you tried to pass off his interview as being new. Even going to the lengths of splicing in a new introduction and news segment. Just wow.
Not too fond of being referred to as the peanut gallery either. With all the vile connotations that entails. Useless eaters too Richard. Man you've lost the plot, and quite possibly the radio gig.
As one person said. Who would have guessed the easiest way for Hoagland to self destruct was to give him everything he wanted.
A great producer in Rossy, Art Bell lending expertise and getting you a loan of expensive gear. Then we find out that you told Rossy (your then producer) that he was wrong to hang up on you so he could take a call from his Mother. That you were more important than his family and that you now own his life.
Now Art Bell is royally ticked off at you because of your lies and downright egomaniacal behaviour. Way to go Richard, alienate everyone, even the ones who were wont to give you a chance to be a decent host. There is more on this debacle to come. I am sure much will soon be revealed. I shall attach a PDF for your perusal. Not that I think your unwarranted monster ego will allow whatever sliver of decency is left in you to care.
I doubt you missed this post from Art Bell. But just in case you did. I quote him verbatim below.
"I guess I need to say something about the email and messages I have been getting about RCH. I did everything I could to help him in every way possible, including getting a loan of expensive gear from Telos to transmit his show to the Network. I found Rossy for him. I gave him the best advice I could muster up on how to proceed. I provided help in more ways then I will try to detail here.
I am sad that events have unfolded as they have. I am not going to discuss specifics but will say that we are currently not in communication nor have we been for some time now. Sometimes you think you know somebody and then find out you never really did, just sad. Please understand that I do not run the Network, I just do my show.
*ps* The PDF in this case will link to my public dropbox where the file is located.
