So rude to the people that call in to swap shop.
Sometimes, they deserve it, but most of the people are trying to be nice to him and he's a smart ____! Were is the Fuzz Man or even good Ol' Steve Waller?

Yes Fuzz is at the co-op, been there a while now and Steve is at 1st Community bank. They both sure did an excellent job and miss hearing them.
Tom does a great job on Saturday's swap shop, fun and happy personality wish he could do it all week.

We hate to listen to Mr monotone which sounds like his personality along with his fake sounding deep voice and his mis pronouciation as he tries to sound sooooo proper. I would suppose it isnt an easy job but he doesnt have the personality at all during swap shop. He may outside of there but cant say dont know him otherwise. Also We absolutly cannot listen to any cherokee football games either due to it. So Sad.
Not bashing him as a person just stating a fact and our opinion to his DJ qualifications as we and many others hear it right on the air. Seems he keeps getting somewhat rudder with people on swapshop cutting them off short then he seems to get a little testy with some. Times are getting tougher and people needing to sell items and looking for items. The program has been on many many years and people have grown to love it. As for us thats really all we listen to mainly on WRGS unless its election or some special event we want to catch highlights of..

I Wondered how long it would be untill a topic was started on this one, saw it and had to pop in and read and of course put my 2 cents worth since we have been loyal listeners for years now.
Phillip Beal rotate people around please. Help our ears. Jay is probablly a great guy but put someone else on swapshop, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I PAY to have my business ads on this station and am completely satisfied with the way WRGS runs their business. People seem to forget that WRGS offers this community what others don't; Free chances for people to sale, buy, or trade. They simply ask business owners not to call in and for you not to call more than once, but people seem to do this continuously.Jay is a professional announcer, who does a great job for our kids in his broadcasts. I don't blame him if he's getting rude with some of the nuts that get on this program. Before knocking a man for his pronunciation please spell it correctly. I pay for my ride on swapshop. So thank you WRGS for all you do for our community. And a special thanks to Jay for his support of our kids.

I was a previous business owner myself and just sold out to my partner to move on to other things.
We advertised on swap shop also (sponsorship for a long time)and it is the only advertisment in Rogersville in my opinion that works and pays off because thats when most people around listen to WRGS. Not saying thats the only time people listen but its a larger time slot that people have gotten used to all these years for SwapShop.
We had live remotes done back when Steve was just leaving and Fuzz and Jay was starting. And again not bashing him (Jay)as a person but as a DJ, our remotes done poorly when Jay done them, but when Steve when he previously was there brought in several people along with Fuzz doing a great job to, we had to request that Fuzz only do our remotes for it to be benificial.

Now to address you "Proud business Owner" 1st I dont care how you spell it. This aint a spelling forum and I dont use spell check and its not about me, but seemed you understood the word and that was all that counts, so please stay on subject.
Also I dont care if Jay is relation to you or not if thats the case that is also irrelivant.
We also paid when we did our swap shop sponsorship and it did a good job for us when they did as we requested as Phillip always accomidated. He does a great job running the station overall. Thats not the subject. But we did request that Jay was not to do any remotes for us anymore back at that time, we preferred Craig,(fuzz) to do them.
I do agree business's should not call in unless they are a paying sponser. Also Sometimes people may forget something maybe from being nervous calling in and need to add something back, now mind ya I dont agree with someone calling back to put the exact same thing back on say at the end that they did at the beginning of the program. But there may be only one or 2 that do that.

He still has the attitude on the air being rude to people and believe me there is a lot out there in the community that says the same thing if you ask around with people that listen. Now if your related they may not say that to you.
Also just wanted to mention, WRGS does a great job for the community but there are other radio station that have swapshop too free to people to sell buy trade ect as you stated. Morristown has one along with Greeneville too so please dont think they are the only ones being my point. I prefer to listen to local Rogersville stuff instead of the other towns but they are broadcasting too.

The main point is Jay seems rude with a attitude to people and has a bland monotone voice that is dull and boring. God if someone sneeked in there and goosed him while he was talking wonder if he would squeel in any other tone or just pee his pants or just go Ha Ha Ha,(<---say that bland and monotone), instead of laughing like normal people.
Again not bashing him as a person just his skills as a DJ.

Waldo you mean you have to go to school to learn how to talk into one of them microphone things?? LOL

everyone is entitled to their opinions. Not all will be the same or in agreement. I am not knocking your opinion "proud business owner" I just dont agree at all myself as it seems you dont with me. If he (Jay)is related to you fine, If the sponsorship is doing good for your business, excellent, thats what you want. I am just stating my experience and my opinion and again from what I have heard from lots of people that listen most feel the s ame as I. You may hear different especially if kin.
But I am done now said my point and peace so let everyone else post their comments on what they think in how Jay does and sounds and see how many agree with whom.

Listen I have known the guy most of my life and I am not kin to him and to tell you the truth I don't see him or speak to him as much as I use to but I probably know him better than most and he is a good guy. As for his DJ skills...it is a local station so stop putting it on a pedestal. I grew up listening to it when I was a kid too and trust me it was not all that, Hell I still remember the big John ads, I still remember people calling in and messing with them on the air, I still remember them messing stuff up on swap shot, I remember them trying to be funnier than they were, I still remember Tom repeating everything the other person said.....it is part of its charm....and I haven't listen to it in years. All I can tell you is that he bothers to learn the kids names and is always trying to support local sports. He has always loved sports and this area and it shows. And for the person who says he is a smart ass...have you met many people in Rogersville...it is the only way you survive in this town for any amount of time....so get over it and I would like to also add on a personal not.....suck a nut lady!

Jay, don't take any of this stuff to heart...life is toooooo short to worry about this crap, your a good person and that is the only thing that matters and well...I think your funny.....but I might be a smart ass as well????

You said you havent listened to it in years so I was just curious( not being a smart a**), just wonder how you know what people are talking about then? You havent listened to it in years soooo?????
No one I have read seems to be remarking to Jay as a person, thats definatly not my intentions because I dont know him that way, just as a DJ and his skills there and how it seems he has been treating people during swap shop. The originator of this post said some (callers)derserve it and I agree but there is more tactfull way's being on the radio live to handle those and not be that way to the majority.
Yes Jay if your reading take it to heart what the people want to hear and be treated it is your business and how people respond to how you do your job. Thats a job thats in the public spotlight. It dont matter of other people in the area are smart a**'s they arent on the radio. After all the listeners is what keeps the business going, along with sponsers. If I am running a business and people tell me Sorry quit listening to swapshop I know I would quit ads on it, but thats just me and I could and have been called a smart a** too. But thats again just me and my opinion.
None of this has stated or judged him as a person but only how we interpret him doing his job, thats all plain and simple.

So of you say "don't pay any attention to what's said here." That's about the silliest statement I have ever heard. In case no one noticed, it's Jay's job to please the public, he is a professional radio announcer and thus should act and sound like one regardless of the market size or just because its "only WRGS." What if one of the local policemen slept in his car the entire shift, would the response be "don't pay any attention to what's said here, you just go ahead and sleep through your shift, it's only Rogersville." No difference, the police work for the citizens of Rogersville, just like Jay is on the air with the goal of people enjoying what he does enough to tune in to the show.

Well see I have a job in another town... so I work (unlike a lot of you who seem to go on and on about nothing on here...how in the hell do you have time to do anything else...but don't get me wrong I still read it because it is funny listening to people bitch about nothing and get so bent out of shape but hey I have already said I am a smart ass....and well I like a good train wreck...who doesn't..) Though, I don't really get to listen to the Rogersville radio station (seeing how it barely can broadcast past the city limits) my parents still occasionally talk about it to me when something funny happens. So that is how I know. Don't get me wrong I really don't care....I just thought I would point out that you all are tearing down a really nice person just because you don't like something on a local radio station (actually swap shop to be more to the point). And it is a local radio station, privately owned and operated and to call Rogersville a Market is funny. And the part comparing his job to a police officer is even funnier..... Are you High....I mean it is ok...do what you have to do to stay off the bell tower......just try to shake it off....take lap...what ever you have to do.....I think everyone should embrace this little weird town we call home.....Hell I wish he could curse some of you people on the air...now for that I would figure out a way to listen to it at work....and encase you forgot...you can still suck a Nut!

hmm we musta posted at same time. My Exactly comment was for Nashville producer. Just wanted to clarify that.

I work in another town too, wow small world aint it. I have a nice air conditioned office job and do most of my work on the computer. When I used to work evenings I listened about every day as working in my shop, but now I am on day shift hmmmm I listen fairly regular depending on how busy I am but can as I work a few days a week.
I pick up WRGS in Morristown just fine, no static, interference or anything. Hmmm your wondering how I do that. Well I just go to their website and clik on the listen live link and waaaaalaaaaaaa!!!!!!
Since you dont care and seem to think Rogersville isnt a market for anything its seems to me maybe you have been sucking nuts yourself and got your head around a little to far and got it hung up in your own a** or someone else's. Now I bet that there was ya a train wreck.

Now go to your corner and lick your wounds since you seem to want to keep talking about something you even said you dont listen to so how can you know what people are talking about. You don't!!!!!!!!!!

Now go away we're done playing with you now.

As the old saying goes..."that's like the pot calling the kettle black". You down grade a persons opinion then you turn around and stress yours upon someone else.

Hell you are just like the rest of us, you take the time (job or no job) and voice an opinion and place some smart quip ("you can still suck a nut") just to keep things stirred up! If you keep replying with antics like this, just to see an answer posted, tells me that you must not "have a job" either.
