Chicago's Jonathan Brandmeier Lashes Out at Radio Industry

He's ready to just sit back and let the ship sink

Former WLUP 97.9 "The Loop" (Chicago) Classic Rock Morning man Jonathan Brandmeier plays the part of a rapper named “Johnny B. The Unemployed Radio Mo Fo.” The video is laced with attacks on the radio industry and the decisions radio executives make to cut cost. On November 30, 2009, Brandmeier was released from his contract from WLUP and Emmis Communications. The firing came three months before the end of his contract.


Interesting note: Brandmeier, a mainstream classic rock DJ, chooses to take on a hip hop/rapper persona to show in displeasure. Probably, no other genre of music would be as effective at expressing his anger. Has he effectively sealed his fate for landing another radio gig?
