Joe Pags off KPRC AM 950


UPDATE APRIL 22, 2014
Joe Pags returns to Houston's 950 KPRC

UPDATE
Walton and Johnson to KPRC AM 950 replacing Joe Pags?

KPRC AM 950 morning man Joe Pags posted on his Facebook page today that this morning's broadcast was his last show on the Houston station:

This morning was my last am show on KPRC in Houston. It was a great run. I've worked in the market for 7 years now and am honored to have been able to start my day with so many of you. I want to thank Ken Charles for taking the chance on me there. Eddie Martiny for keeping me around for so long. Bryan Erickson for putting up with my directness, Ramon Robles for his friendship and for being a good sounding board for me, and James Simpson for becoming much more than a board op in the morning. I will sleep in tomorrow then find my next challenge on the dial -- hopefully, you'll hear my voice on a radio station near you soon. This does NOT affect my 1200 WOAI, Newsradio 850KOA, or The Weekend shows. Thanks For a great run, Houston!

UPDATE APRIL 22, 2014
Joe Pags returns to Houston's 950 KPRC

  1. Never really cared for the idea of a guy who lived near San Antonio pretending to do "local" radio here, but he seemed to have a following.

  2. Can't believe they dumped Pags for Beavis and Butthead.

  3. I can't believe it, say it isn't so? Now there is nothing to listen at KPRC950. I tried to listen to Walton & Johnson, but that is like drinking a cafe latte that was made with spoiled milk. Goodbye Joe you will be missed and goodbye KPRC950, you will be forgotten ...

    1. Couldn't agree with you more. What a slap upside your head to tune in to find yakety yak & dip flip brothers have taken over. WTH?!

    2. Yep, no Pags and no Dennis Miller = time to find a new station

  5. Who wants to listen to those idiots.... I wasn't the biggest fan of Joe but I Atleast found his topics interesting and could listen to the guy. These clowns just piss me off.

    1. I agree. W & J are idiots. I cannot even stand to hear them by accident when I search channels. Joe always had good topics but I was starting to listen to him less and less. He was getting too surly and elitist for me. I listen to KSEV for the morning drive now. They're not as dynamically interesting but at least they're topical. I am looking into 1070 to see how they are as well.

  6. Agreed, Bad decision nine five OHHHH, I knew something was up when it became this mornings more stimulating talk show....sounds like it got dumbed down. Guess I will have to listen to Matt Patrick on 740 and of course Berry on the way home.

  7. Good riddance to a paid Republican shill. Rude, uninformed and did nothing but repeat Faux News and Glenn Beck talking points.

    1. You are right. He was rude. However, you are just a sheep following idiot.

  8. I could listen to frat radio on FM stations. Awful!! How can they be so completely clueless about who their (former) listening audience is (was). I'm actually offended. I'm going to have to listen to Glenn Beck on podcast, cuz I'm done with 950 unless they bring Pags back.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Just cut my listening time in half, the clowns they replaced Pags with are disgusting and do not hold my attention, So long 950, cut you off just like I did KSEV years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The two replacements sound like uninformed hillbillies. 950 should bring back Pags. He was the only one I listened to on the 950. Goodbye 950......

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'll miss all the regular callers, like little Taylor, even blame girl, the beer guy and I'll miss my morning mojo. You know Pags started your morning right and because of him I kept my dial on 950 until Rush on 740 and now there is no Pags and no 950. In my option they should fire the idiot that allowed Pags to walk out. He and his regular callers were like family in Houston. Real men like to listening to a real manly man.

  12. Wow! What a pitiful move by 950 KPRC. I tuned out 93.7 when Walton and Johnson went there now I have tuned out 950. Huge mistake 950. You will be losing lots of listeners and as a consequence, PAID ADVERTISERS. Via Con Dios. You should have gotten rid of Glenn Beck, he has run his course. You could have moved Pags to Beck's spot.

    ReplyDelete
  13. 950 should change their name to "the most irritating talk show".

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow, what a huge mistake for 950 KPRC. I would like to know what the real reason Pags was cut from the programming. Do you really think Beavis and Butt-Head will have anywhere near the following that Pags had? 950 KPRC you need to fire whoever made this idiot decision.

  15. It is sad that the 950 made such a stupid move, we like real information and reasonable opinions, now you have dumb topics and real idiots not worth my time goodbye 950!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. For the first time in 38 years of listening to the 950, it is no longer in my preset radio buttons and I was so enjoying it on iheart radio, but no anymore, gone from my life, just like the Oilers. Love you blue and the radio mojo are history.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Joe Pags's approach to topics made a lot of since and taught a better way of approaching things is life. I know it's simple and some people may say "duh", but he would always say "What are the facts?", "Talk about the point and not what someone else did in the past" and "Don't make decisions solely based emotions". I will miss his show, and the 45 minutes to an hour that I spent with him every week day morning.

    I tried listening to Walton & Johnson, and like most people are saying on this post, I can't hang with the silliness and lack of depth. Maybe this is the type of audience that the station is trying to target. As for me, I'm out and will look for something better on internet radio or satellite.

  18. Starting your morning with Walton & Johnson is like starting your morning with a flat tire and an empty tank of gas, you just can't get down the road with that. Those guys should stick to making commercials for oops steam cleaning or seriously think about making a career change to be Walmart greeters, that is of course if they could pass the drugs and alcohol test.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Totally agree with these postings. W & J is a waste of a pre-set. Back to 700 & 740 in the morning. Hope there is another option soon in the future but I won't be listening to them.

  20. CASEY B.SORRY,JOE WAS THE MAN IN THE MORNING.INFORATIVE WITH GREAT TOPICS AND GUESTS THAT BROUGHT IT!!! SORELY MISSED.WELL THERE IS ALWAYS 740 WITH MATT WHO IS GOOD BUT NOT JOE P.
    THANKS FOR SEVEN GREAT YEARS.

  21. Yes. KPRC 950 has lost me as a listener.. I will have to listen to the others, Pags, Beck and Miller via I Heart Radio or some other medium other than the 950. Big mistake on their part.

    ReplyDelete
  22. first they stick dennis miller at midnight and now they drop joe pags for what sounds like the other guy said, beavis and butthead. the new guys are the kind of crap that movies and george carlin made fun of. seems like clear channel wants one butt-ugly failure station in the houston market, what is it? do they get some kind of tax cut, or some slack cut on anti-trust legislation? ok, we have one straight news station with conservatives, the other we put on buffoons who make conservatives look like farting and off colored teenagers ?

  23. When I turned into 950 I just figured Pags was on vacation and they found a couple of rednecks to fill in. So now I learn that this is permanent? You have to be kidding? I try to avoid hillbillies and rednecks in life, not listen to their thoughts. Might as well start running He-Haw and Beverly Hillbillies re-runs. Some new sponsors will Schlitz, and Bubba's Pork Rinds.

  24. Advertisers should smarten up and stop throwing their money away, nobody is listening to the 9-5-0!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thought Pags was on vacation. Can't listen to the new guys. I'm outta here 950!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Walton & Johnson are just NASTY! Talk about a stupid move. These two guys are so bad. I have moved over to 1070am and 740am.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The ONLY reason I listened to the 950 was for Joe Pags. Stick with your Democrats and PC junk, you've lost me and a LOT of others. I'm with everyone else--no more listening to 950, Bye Bye!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a lousy thing to do! This guy is great. Obviously "the 950" can't handle the truth. Won't listen to those idiot clowns in the morning, going to listen to Joe on IHeart radio. Good riddance 950.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can't believe Joe Pags will no longer broadcast In the morning. I have been listening to him several months and I really enjoyed waking up every morning to hear his voice while driving to work. Oh boy, how I loved listening to him. As sharp, professional, and intelligent this man is, he really made everyone's day. Joe pags you truly going to be missed. Thank you for being my cup of coffee every morning.

  30. Joe Pags tweets he will fill in for Matt Patrick this week.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Personally, while I agreed with Pags on almost all of his talking points, I could not stand his New York style, snide, rude, "My opinion is better than yours" attitude. Totally turned me off. I actually could care less that he is off the air. But no matter, my ears go to AM 1070 these days for Sam Malone every morning and Michael Berry after work.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Michael Berry has way too many commercial interruptions.

  33. I too thought Pags was on vacation. Can't BELEIVE it's W and J. Too sad for you 9 5 0. Mr Pags is a real intelligent individual WITH a HUGE fan base. I don't know what happened but good bye pre set 950. might as well put MAN COW on. DURRRR........W&J talk about Farts in my prime time drive in! NO WAY

    ReplyDelete
  34. Joe pags made my morning drive through Houston traffic enjoyable educational and informational. He is extremely talented and intelligent. No more 950 for me. Joe we will miss u....

  35. Clear Channel cancelled 101 KLOL to go tejano. Wow! That was smart! (sarcasm) Now, they cancel one of their best and replace them with inferior, classless, clowns. Once again, brilliant! (not) Maybe one day, people will learn, if it's not broke, then don't try to fix it! Simply put, stupid, stupid move. Goodbye 950!

  36. I used to tune into Joe P. all the time. I tuned in one morning on my way to taking my 11 year old son to school and heard these new idiots talking about big penis's, I was shocked and pissed at KPRC. You guys are off my speed dial now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. As pags would say 'get off my radio'

    ReplyDelete
  38. Taking off preset, no reason to listen to 950AM. I am actually pissed that this is permanent. I thought he was just filling in for Matt P on 740AM. New guys are horrible. Guess I have to renew my XM subscription because I quit 740 without Lana and JP and 8AM is too late as I am at work so can't listen to MB.

  39. Wow, I can't believe he's off the air. He was so intelligent, so compassionate and a gentlemen...

    Nah...actually he sucked! I'm surprised he made it as long as he did. Always interrupting or talking over his callers, especially when they were makeing a valid arguement. Worse than all that, he thought he was funny; his humor came off as cornball-ish on his very best day. Peace Il Duce, don't let the door hit you in your fascist fat ass...

    Good luck with your future gigs as long as it's no where near Texas.

    Love,
    Everyone

  40. I have listened to pags for years...even my granddaughter knew his voice...and learned things. Gave me an opportunity to explain political ideas to her. 950 has lost me.....sooo disappointed. Have been looking all over the place for Joe. Can't stand those guys on now....too much profanity and ignorance for early morning drive!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was wondering what was going on with pags, I like others thought he was on vacation and these other pathetic guys were filling in, but I guess not. Very bad decision in my opinion to let Joe go and replace him with absolutely nothing. You will be missed pags! Goodbye 950!

  42. Freedom to not vote 'one election' vs vote when I choose, how when, where and how.

    Joe Pags is not in my radio lifestyle.

    My decision to observe the cycles of personalities run their "rugid course" so speak without my vote felt unobligatory. I learned from *The Best of The Best* : Wayne Dolcefino -- personally observing his freedom to choose school elections as his #1 priority.

    So ..
    Are you saying "You did not vote in The Presidential election?"

    "I am saying, politics is crazzzzzzzzzy in Fort Bend, enough 'crazzzzzzzzzzzzzy' to stop and think why the residents here aren't caring enough about our Roads & Bridge traffic nightmares on the way to school. You may always quote my comments and questions I wrote directly to our Judge Bob Hebert of Fort Bend County Commissioners Court. My sons and I speak out quite frenquently relative to the safety that appears so non-existant. I know we are important."

  43. Why don't you hook up with some other radio station in the Houston area? The hillbillies who replaced you suk. I listen to Matt Patrick now, but he just repeats and repeats and repeats his schtick. Yet he is better than the idiots 950 has hired. Did you lose too many sponsors? Who sells your show? Good Luck. Would like to see you return but I guess that is out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I used to listen to 950 in the morning, but now I refuse to as I can not stand the clowns that they replaced Pags with....

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well I liked Pags, but Walton and Johnson aren't really Beavis and Butthead in style either. They are a pretty funny team that's been in the business for a while. They're format is suppose to be light hearted and goofy. Either way I wish they could find a way to bring Pags back. Perhaps they could get rid of Garfield, he is to middle of the road in his show, and has weak opinions.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Why? Was he too candid?

    I liked Pags for being no BS and topical. We lost the last hour of Bill Bennett for some reason....a NATIONAL show. Houston Talk is going down. Too many commercials will finally do it in.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well KPRC how are those morning rating doing since you brought back those 2 idiots? I used listened to you every week day. Have not listened to you since Paggs left. Who cares about commercial success igore the desires of the public and reap the whirlwind you brainless twats

  48. Hey Mr Pags,
    I can prove I work for a non profit shelter, You adopted a dog from me several years ago ~ Bulverde Area Humane Society.
    The military family cannot take the dogs to Germany now, it's too late. Michael's wife is already in Germany setting uptheir appartment that doesn't allow dogs/animals.
    So, I am taking his dogs and will get them good homes but the problem is I have no free kennels. Please tell your listeners to come to our shelter or to the Tractor Supply this Saturday 11 to 4 and adopt a dog from the Bulvede Area Humane Society so we will have the kennels available for the 2 dogs from military Michael.
