Below, from the All Access website, we see an account of just another day in Los Angeles radio in 2012.
Clear Channel Talk KFI-A/Los Angeles has suspended afternoon stars John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou for what the station termed "insensitive and inappropriate comments about the late Whitney Houston."
ANYONE seen Doc Brown around lately? I need to talk to him.
The remarks in question, said by Kobylt on Tuesday's show and circulated , said of how people in Houston's life likely dealt with the singer's decline, "She's been cracked out for 20 years, and we heard how obnoxious she was these parties, I mean, she's doing handstands, she's babbling like an idiot, running around ... she's a mess ... She's been doing this for 20 years.... So, how much of a pain in the ass do you think she was? Can you imagine, you're Clive Davis, and she has not been -- she has not had her head screwed on right for 20 years? At some point you’re just sick of it all, and so is everybody else in the industry, all her friends and hangers on, everybody who knew had to deal with her, it’s like, 'ah, Jesus, here comes the crack ho again, what’s she gonna do; Oh, look at that, she’s doing handstands next to the pool. Very good, crack ho, nice.' After a while, everybody’s exhausted. And then you find out she’s dead. It’s like, 'really ... took this long?'"
