I think I finally figured out the whole Goldhammer deal...

I think I finally figured out Rizzo's infatuation with having a Goldhammer on the show.

He came up with Lannigan and Webster. Learned the "funny guy who needs someone to play off of" bit.

And who will ever forget Thor Tolo and Paul Tapei who listened to sports radio in the early 90's?

IIRC he had a sidekick with him at WHK.

He commented after doing the Rome show that the whole Hammer doing show tunes was staged, that he "took one for the team."

That sort of schtick works in Cleveland. The land of Hoolihan and Big Chuck. But I doubt he'll ever go into syndication. I don't think many people outside the market get it.

i just figured they pay him peanuts and he wants to be in radio so much that he just takes it.

My theory is that Goldhammer is one of these three people:

1. Ziner (infatuated with ShamWOW guy like Goldhammer)
2. Triple-S (living in Denver, allegedly, where Goldhammer is from)
3. SoulDawg74 (this would explain a lot)

I know what you are saying... Peeker is much more likely to be Goldhammer. But unfortunatley for those hoping this was true, I have met Peeker and he is NOT Goldhammer.

I'm thinking Rizzo recalls Peter Brown.

The out of town hata thing works well in C-town. So much self-loathing, so much provincialism.

If Hammer was going to be a poster on this forum he would be, without question, Bow (Hoodoo).
