Walton and Johnson to return on 97.5 KIOL

Sigh. From the day that KLOL changed formats, the rumor has always been that morning DJs Walton and Johnson would return somewhere to pollute the airwaves. New rock station KIOL has been teasing about a “big announcement” the past week or so, and now it’s official. They’re apparently on as of today. All I can say is it’s nice I finally added KACC to my radio dial. Via blogHOUSTON.

(They also say that Jim Pruett and Outlaw Dave may be back as well. That’s fine, though neither here nor there as far as my tuning in is concerned. Honestly, the longer they keep the DJ-free jukebox format, the better.)

    W & J = truth and common sense. Beats the Hell outa Bob & Tom!

    Dawn, et al: Hear that sucking sound as you make your way around Houston? Its KIOL… The reason the sucking sound gets louder during the morning rush is because of Walton & Johnson – easily the most unfunny, pig-porking, fanny-pinching, war rally attending, red-neck morning dj’s (apealing to the lowest-common-denominator) this side of the equator. They – and the people they speak to – are the reason rock is in a vegetative state on life support in Houston. Satellite radio should thank its lucky stars for these fools. They’re driving sophisticated people who miss AOR radio (you know – when it was good) & real rock & roll in droves to buy XM & Sirius receivers. Sure – I used to think DJ’s like W&J were funny too… back when I was in junior high. The djs were funny back then was because their material was fresh & original. That, & I had a junior high level sense of humor. S&P, W&J and all the rest are just watered down imitations doing the same old titty poems & fart jokes, prattling on (and on) about how the man’s keepin’ you down (whether the “man” is an elephant or ass depends solely on who’s in the white house, not any developed political philosophy) & lifting their jokes about gays & women from what’s been carved on the bathroom walls at the downtown bus station. They haven’t had an original idea since their first station identification. Real rock? Common sense? Telling it like it is?? Come on! These twits are GIVEN their socio-political opinions by the pin heads who hired them, & now, to your disgrace, are GIVING you yours. Yes, I did change the channel. In fact, I haven’t listened to the radio in months. I found radio heaven in XM.
    You can use the enema, porky. It’ll make pulling your head out of your a$$ a lot easier. Oo! Did I say that? Stop me before I rant again!!
    PS: Efrain H? If you’re being educated by W&J on ANYTHING that goes on in the world, THAT should be your secret, chump.

    Joe Momma has posted the best comments yet on the senile w&j morning show. Steve Johnson’s Amos and Andy voices are lame, he has nothing more than a high school education. Walton and Johnson have not been funny since they left New Orleans and went to Houston. These guys are pushing 60 and read the Drudge report as gospel. Their show is nothing more than a free infomercial for the GOP. W&J suck.

  4. Big H says:

    I want to add to my previous comments that w&j were the biggest blind cheerleaders of this war on their regional network than any other commentators. John Walton has said on the air that he was lucky during the Vietnam war because his number wasn’t called, though he never volunteered. They have encouraged young people to enlist and fight in Iraq (the war they vehemently supported), though NONE of their own children serve in the U.S. armed forces. Steve Johnson (who does the stereotypical voices) likes to insinuate that his Billy Ed (redneck) character served in the military, but he did not.
    I believe these irresponsible broadcasters will be judged harshly by future historians for their blind support of this war and families of American casualties will view these fools as mouthpieces of the worst President in American history.
    These unfunny fossils have never achieved good ratings since relocating to Houston, and their ratings on KIOL have gone done steadily. The only reason their New Orleans station had ratings was because of a guy named Hooks (heard in the film Runaway Jury) who did hilarious news and commentary mornings, both before and after they went to Houston, and was considered more funny and talented than both w&j and johnson’s voices. Hooks not only openly opposed this war and endorsed Ralph Nader for President, but he had something these guys never had…a vocabulary. That’s probably why Clear Channel laid him off last year.
    Jesse Ventura said in an interview on CNBC last month that commentators like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity were chicken hawks; meaning they never served in the military, but encourage others and their children to do so; just like these morons. W&J not only suck, but they are hypocrits.

    I HAD GROWN UP LISTENING TO KLOL AND WHEN THE FORMAT CHANGED, IT REALLY SURPRISED ME.! I REALLY THOUGHT THAT THE AMERICAN RADIO STATIONS WOULD NOT SELL OUT TO THE IMIGRANTS OF ANOTHER COUNTRY. “BOY, DID THAT HIT A NERVE.” YOU GO W&J,I TRY TO TUNE IN EVERY CHANCE I GET. AND THEY SAY, “THAT THE WHITE, AMERICAN MALE AND FEMALE ARE THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION!!” THAT IS A LOAD OF BU!!SH!!. WAKE UP AMERICA AND SMELL THE REFRIED BEANS. AS MY MOMMA TOLD ME, YEARS AGO, MEXICO WILL GET TEXAS BACK FROM THE UNITED STATES WITHOUT EVER FIRING A SHOT. AND THEY HAVE!! YEAH W&J LETS ROLL.

  6. Big D says:

    Big H, I would almost believe that you are really Hooks writing your comments from some the phrases and words Hooks used such as calling W&J senile, the “Runaway Jury” reference, and the better vocabulary that I have heard Hooks use over and over and over and over and over…get the picture. I guess he believed in the “squeaky wheel gets the foreskin back.” Hooks was laid off because he was a “beat the dead horse” comic. It seems that he lost his sense of what’s funny once he lost his reserved parking spot and had a meltdown on the air.

  7. Big D says:

    As for Walton & Johnson, I have lived around in this great nation and have listened to many radio shows in major markets. I would say that Walton & Johnson are one of my two top favorites. The other being Dave, Chainsaw and Shelley in San Diego on KGB 101.

    Walton & Johnson kept me from going road rage on the long drive across the 24 mile Causeway Bridge when I lived in New Orleans. Now I am in Dallas campaigning to remove Roth from the radio to make way for the Radio Gawds.

  8. Big H says:

    Gawdy, more like, than gods, but I guess some people like belching and farting in between w&j’s far right political commentary. I’ve been a history teacher my whole life and I can tell you that w&j’s comments on politics and life come across as uneducated ramblings of idiots. They gave vocal, over-the-top support for the war in Iraq, and for this President, and bear moral responsibility, in part, for American casualties that signed up while listening to their lies in the morning.

    As for meltdowns, w&j have had more of them than ice cream in the Arizona desert, including encouraging listeners to use physical violence against bicyclists by hitting them with their vehicles, and being warned by the Secret Service to stop threatening the life of Al Gore on the air (they even joked about it numerous times). At least Hannity or Rush can engage in educated debate, w&j, the radio dawgs, just call anyone who disagrees with their politics commie bedwetters ( a line they took from Don Imus, but w&j have stolen more material than Milton Berle); they call people unpatriotic morons that are killing American soldiers if they don’t agree with thier views on this war. They just spew stupidity, maybe that’s why Marc Stevens of the Steven’s and Pruett morning show used to call them Walnut & Jerkoff. The next time they endorse this war, maybe listeners should call them and ask when THEIR kids will sign up.

    W&j’s show is just a four and a half hour free on-air blog for this White House. Mary Matalin couldn’t buy bigger brown-nosers. One minute w&j are talking about feces and boogers, then cranky Walton wants to pretend like he’s on CSPAN and lecture listeners why the Republican Party is America’s salvation. The next time you are paying $3.00 a gallon for gas, you can thank these guys for helping to elect the worst President in American history.

    I wouldn’t even worry about hearing these guys in Houston for much longer, considering even the smallest, weakest morning show have been trouncing them in the ratings since they got to Houston. w&j suck more.

    I listened to the Walton and Johnson show, which I sometime find funny, sometime offensive, but today was not right… I needed to write in and say that God created all men EQUAL, He created the earth for ALL men to inhabit.. I have a very hard working Mexican son-in-law and know many many more… Every Mexican I know, are very hard working, honest, and very fmaily oriented.. They have left a government that only keeps them down to make money to send home for what we call a better way of life. They have guts! It takes guts and necessity to leave your land, your language, your culture to come here to make the money your family need… For every Mexican I see here working like dogs doing jobs that our own Louisiana’s would not dare do, instead black and white lay on their lazy butts scamming our government. I am a law abiding Christian who pays my taxes for all of these scammers, why can’t my tax money go toward getting someone in here from another country that wants to work and allow them to do what others won’t do? You guys need to look at both sides…
    My son-in-law came here simply to help his family send his brother to college. His dad who has now returned to Mexico because he accomplished his task, he made enough money to buy his son a computer for college.. Now HOW CAN YOU WRONG SOMEONE FOR DOING THIS? Look around you! Look in the front yards during a normal work week… I see men and women, black and white sitting on their front porches and out by the road, drinking alcohol, smoking and just living it up. While my husband and I work on the concrete that only intensifies the heat and brightness of the sun, packing trees to build houses for our American dream… Why can’t they have a chance? Who ARE YOU, to say they shouldn’t be here? You didn’t create the earth they are inhabiting, you didn’t them, so you have no right to say they should not live here! I mean what would this world be if all the blacks stayed in Africa, all the English stayed in England, and so on…
    I say this in the love of God, who did creat them and desires just as much for them as he does you, Walton and Johnson and all of your listeners as well as our polititions that want to keep them out… The drug addicts I know are black and white, I know NO mexican users, now am I saying that there are none? NO, I am sure all races have their addicts… But look around Louisiana and tell me how man black drug users you see, or alcoholic, and how many white drug users you see, or alcoholic, and how many Mexican drug users you see. They are not the reason for this problem…

  10. Rex Tremendae says:

    Yeah, I have to agree with Penny, Big H and Joe Momma, I’ve heard all kinds of racial epithets spew from the wj show. I’ve heard them call Arabs ragheads and towelheads. Those guys are not funny. They are just defenders of the Republicans that lied about the war in Iraq and the reasons for young Americans laying down thier lives. They have blood on their microphones and are supporters of the policy makers that have us paying $3.00+ for a gallon of gas.
    The management of their station should be ashamed for pushing that kind of trash on the air on KIOL.

  11. Big D says:

    Penny,
    I just recently lived in New Orleans for three years. The reason you do not see any Mexicans on drugs is because you do not see hardly any Mexicans in Louisiana. If you do not believe me, go here http://www.censusscope.org/us/map_hispanicpop.html.

    Come to Texas where I grew up and now live. Just watch the local news and you will see plenty of stories of Mexicans in some sort of incident involving drugs, alcohol, along with their brothers and sisters of other races.

    I have no problem with folks coming here for a better life, AND BECOMING AMERICANS. However, I do have a problem with those who think it is okay to circumvent the law and jump ahead of those who are following the law and coming from countries far more depressed economically than Mexico. Mexico is doing better than other countries, ranked number 53 of 177 in gross domestic product per capita.

    You can’t just open the borders. Services can not adjust to the large influx in a timely manner, and you will get what you got when the large influx of Irish and Italians came to America, impoverished neighborhoods, gangs and other problems associated with it.

    I have been to Mexico as I have been to every continent on this planet. I have walked the streets of Mogadishu, Somalia. Mexico is far better off than those in Somalia. It is just that Somalians do not have the convenience of jumping the nearby border.

    I heard a song about a week ago about a guy driving in his car. anyone know the name of it? It was a comedy song. thedtinson@yahoo.com

  13. John says:

    I’m amused at anyone who thinks these two clowns are funny. Those that post here in support of these two nutsacks must be on the payroll.
    Vale, I can take everything you know about morning shows and cram it in a fly’s butt with room to spare. For someone whose been all over the country you don’t know jack. Ever heard of Lewis and Floorwax in Denver? W & J are retards.
    I don’t care for syndicated radio but Bob and Tom are miles ahead of these two brain dead buttmonkies.
    Now Cumulus has wrapped thier clammy fingers of death around KBDN, The Bone, in Dallas and are playing W&J. There’s no better way to say “We think the radio audience is stupid.” than by putting these two jackasses on the air. I never thought I would find a more talentless radio show than JohnBoy and Billy but it’s been done. No music in the morning and absolutley nothing in the form of quality or comedy to offer.
    Bring back Humble Billy Hays and Bone Brother Donovan. Thanks Cumulus. You suck, too.

  14. Kyle says:

    Thanks John. A couple of years ago, I moved to Dallas and found a really cool non-Coporate-sounding radio station — 93.3 and really liked Humble Billy Hays and Bone Brother Donovan and the rest of the crew. Now we have yet another corporate takeover, and these two idiots (W&J) have taken their place. I guess I will have to forego listening what used to be a good station and go to NPR. I have already sent my comments directly to the station.

    WALTON AND JOHNSON JUST PLAIN SUCK. ITS NOT FUNNY – ITS RETARDED..ID RATHER HEAR THAT FAT COWBOY ON THE RANGE PICK HIS TEETH THAN HEAR RACIAL SLURS AND JOKES ABOUT MIGRATION OF nEW’AWLINS AT 7 AM. SAVE DALLAS FROM ANOTHER MISERABLE RADIO SO CALLED TALENT AND SHOOT THESE PIGS IN THE HEAD…AND THEY CAN STOP TELLING PEOPLE TO GO TO DALLAS ANY DAY NOW. ITS NOT FUNNY., YA HEAR ME – NAT FUHUNNY .

  16. Rex Tremendae says:

    You are right, man. Did you know that in the last presidential election walton&johnson said that John Kerry should be a human suicide bomber and blow up Iraqis? They also joked about assasinating John Kerry when w&j said,”he’d be hard to miss with that big Easter Island head.”
    They always get away with making these kinds of comments, just like when they said that Americans should throw pork at Arabs. Yeah, I also heard what Big H said a few years ago about the Secret Service calling their show to warn them about joking about the life of Al Gore.
    I guess if these guys only joke about Democrats they are untouchable.

  17. Michael says:

    KIOL’s website is http://www.houstonrock1037.com/

    As for W&J, I’ve never listened to them but I used to listen to S&P but they spent too much time with the sexual jokes for my taste.

    But those who do not like listening to W&J can do as I did when S&P was on and listen to the station after W&J goes off the air for the day. Until then, pop in a CD!

  18. B says:

    SO what happened to HOOKS? Where is he?

  19. Rex Tremendae says:

    Yeah, Michael I understand what you are saying about not listening to garbage. I’m just surprised a station like KIOL tolerates such a political morning show that is nothing but divisive. In other words, shows like that make a few uneducated people happy, but end up making listeners angry.

    KIOL has done so poorly in the ratings, they can’t afford to run people off for some guys that spew the latest spin from Pat Robertson types.

    I’d like KIOL to succeed as a rock station, maybe by going all music in the mornings or at the very least getting rid of that tired morning show.

  20. Todd says:

    I heard walton and johnson making fun of Steve Irwin’s death last week. Probably because Irwin supported environmental causes that Republicans don’t like. It’s true that it really is a shame that someone who just wants to hear a little rocknroll has to hear this politically biased “show”. I think people who don’t like their show should record them and play these comments for the parent company of KIOL and for all the sponsors and purchasers of commercials.

  21. Rex Tremendae says:

    The vote nationwide this week should be a signal to stations like KIOL that the hateful, childish, moronic rhetoric spewed out by the w&j show is contrary to the beliefs and views of Americans. No ratings for these vain fossils in Houston or Dallas. I think it’s great that Outlaw Dave posts a link to this website on his. W&J are as dated as bell bottom jeans and jumped the shark at the same time as Fonzie.

    It really is ashame that KIOL endorses these guys and their politics; all they are doing is making enemies.
