February 15, 2008 | Inside Radio| Police in El Dorado, Arkansas arrested Monnie Dodd, a DJ at KLBQ-FM (98.7) charging him with computer fraud and with selling unauthorized recordings on eBay. The Arkansas DJ was arrested for allegedly selling unauthorized recordings on eBay. Police claim Monnie Dodd — better known as Dan Murphy on KLBQ 98.7 — used his position as a DJ to get radio programs and sell them on eBay with an account set up in his ex-wife’s name.

El Dorado Disc Jockey Busted

Source: El Dorado News-Times A local radio disc jockey wasarrested by El Dorado police this week for allegedly using equipment and materials at his job to illegally download recordings and steal his ex-wife’s identity to sell the recordings on a popular Internet auction website.

Monnie Leon Dodd, 48, of 1409 W. Hill, was served Wednesday withwarrants for unauthorized copying or sale of recordings and computerfraud. Dodd had a recommended bond of $10,000. He is scheduled for a first appearance hearing at 1:30 p.m. today in Union County District Court.

Bobbie Corker told police on Jan. 21 that Dodd, her ex-husband, had fraudulently used her name and home telephone number to open an accounton eBay on Jan. 5. Corker said she learned of the account after she was contacted by a company in New York, and she later discovered that Corker was selling unauthorized recordings on eBay. Dodd worked as a DJ for local radio station KLBQ and used the call name "Dan Murphy." He allegedly burned onto CDs musical programs that were sent to KLBQ from distribution companies in New York. "The programs would be something like the Grand Ole Opry, and they send them to radio stations, and in exchange, they’re supposed to play commercials so many times per program," El Dorado Police
Detective Jamie Morrow explained.

Morrow said that once the programs have aired, radio stations are supposed to destroy the digital recordings, but Dodd allegedly burned the programs onto CDs and auctioned them, along with the radio programs’ cue sheets, on eBay.

Morrow said he was uncertain how many CDs and cue sheets Dodd sold on the website.

While being questioned by investigators, Dodd denied committing the crime, Morrow said.
Unauthorized copying or sale of recordings and computer fraud are both Class D felonies, punishable by up to six years in prison and/or fines of up to $250,000 and $10,000, respectively.

Did i mention that noalmark has a well known pedophile as a d.j. - i suppose its okay to molest children - klbq monnie dodd is not a pedophile. Sandy at Noalmark demanded the shcool board bid out the wildcats so he could make all the money - he lost the bid to Rosh, I guess Rosh invest in things that are important. Sandy also got together with a local church who has airtime on cable and sold commercials which is not so legal. This information is public recod at the Eldorado school board.

Wasn't Rosh's stations supposed to broadcast ALL El Dorado High School sports? Seems like when football season ended, we didn't hear a lot of boys and girls basketball...no softball and baseball. Oh, his bid was for the RADIO rights of EHS sports. It did not include television.
BTW - Some of us would like to know who the alledged pedophile is at Noalmark. Has he/she registered as a sex offender? Now THAT would be news!

The person who is a pedophile no longer works in El Dorado.When did it become "not so legal" to sell commercial time on cable?

I guess Sandy follows the old south motto... Drink on Saturday; Sing with the choir on Sunday!

Yes I know he's not in the choir at that "local" church...

My issue with this situation is this... 1.) KLBQ bid and won exclusive media coverage of the wildcat games. I have an issue with that fact that Sandy hid a not for profit group (that church) to still be able to do this... Now what he did was sell ads "in the name of the church" and then there was a split.. He received pay as well as the the church... All of which is where the real issue is. He should not have been allowed to profit on this. He knows it was wrong.. They were going to have Troy on the Sideline and Steve in the media booth... School board came in and nixed that... They had even put out adverts about this... It's obvious sandy is out to make a buck whatever way he can....

Ask him about those families he has supposedly helped... He'll stumbled to think of a name... Ask him about how he has given a HUGE discount to a local business (who had the money to pay their debt) yet other small business who are falling on tough times have asked him for some help or extra time to pay their bill... and his answer was tough....

Keep drinking on Saturday Sandy... But I don't want to watch you on t.v. anymore on Sunday.

High School ball games are public entertainment funded by taxpayer dollars and therefore should not be for sale to the highest bidder.That practice should be made illegal.

Catman if you only knew what a racket high school athletics are. It's a joke. Count the number of coaches and wives that El Dorado has as Superintendent, Principals, Vice-principals and Student Services Directors. And college athletics are more of a racket. It's all taxpayer monies.

Isn’t it funny how people tell on themselves…? Guess 98.7 is really not doing so well... so Rosh sent his elephant on here to defend him… This person in the biz is obviously an employee of 98.7 named Michelle… Her husband or bf one plays for the band Bluz Metal that she is now promoting in another post…. Here is her succession of posts in this forum…

Rosh's stations are doing very well the change to country and the legends bud cross and donny-t have proved to be a great move. Noalmark however cant keep a good crew onk kixb also myka daniels on kix midday is voiced tracked out of Texarkana. Rosh has every penny he has ever earned and own's his stations outright so no chance of bankruptcy.

I know of a great local band called bluzmetal. Grant Sinclair is the main man but the talent pool runs deep. They have Guitar Player, Lead Guitar Player, Keyboards,Drums, Bass Guitar, and get this Grants wife Nancy plays the flute. They have been practicing all their original music for at leat 2 years that I know of and they are EXCELLENT! They are bluzy/metal with no offensive material. Musicfest needs to be their debut platform, they prefer family oriented events over the typical bar scene, I highly recommend them!
I don’t know if Bill Nolan, Sandy Sanford or Rosh Partridge read these sites… If they do Nolan & Sanford should call on Rosh to fire this woman. She should be ashamed of herself for stooping to such tactics as to say these things about her competition… Are ya‘ll doing so bad over there that this is all you have to try and get customers with… I will be telling EVERYONE I know to pull ads away from you… This kind of nonsense is senseless… Evidently things aren’t so well over there.... or else you wouldn’t be spending company time posting on here… I hope I have fortune of seeing Rosh sometime soon and he tells me that he’s made a change over there and gotten rid of you!
Mmm

Thanks in the biz for the good words about the band. My name as you advised me is in this blog and that is slander to me. first the band is not interested in doing any local gigs. We have pro-tools and a recording studio and have other ventures. As for the comments made that I am accused of here we go:
I worked at Noalmark more than 10 years ago had a great run, had a great boss Leanne. The only person I know there is Ms. Sharon and that woman is a class act. There is some credibility in comments I read about the cats, but thats just the nature of the business, everyone wants exclusive rights i.e. Razorbacks, Wildcats. As for Sandy well I don't know him, met him once he was nice to me. Don't know much about Boomer just that he is a good guy and has always been pleasant to me, my family knows him well. There are may people in the music business who have been out to hear the band. Mostly men...
This is my only post - Also in the biz I'm not mad at you just keep me out of this, thanks for the tip.

It was seen as a donation to a non-profit organization and was actually tax-deductable! Rosh also was to upgrade the "visitor" side press boxes

and when Noalmark did the broadcasts...they did varisty football, GIRLS & BOYS basketball and all home baseball & softball games.
Good Deal

The issue is.. he was barred from broadcasting the games due to his failed bid.. so to get around this he went through a not for profit organization and made a profit... I.R.S. obviously has not visited this church in a while...

Profit? now, I do not believe that could really be proven. The church and the radio station would have to put a price on everything they did and the "talent fee", etc. We all know Sandy get like 1K an hour
