Didn't Rock 92.3 (their sister station) do the same things a few years ago - well, publicity stunt, by having someone "accidentally" turn off the broadcast for a few hours...because he got fired?
I think it was "Goat Boy" who did it...

I think it's totally ridicoulous that they have been suspended. They did nothing wrong and quite honestly, they've done a lot worse. BRING THEM BACK...............THEY ARE VERY MUCH NEEDED....

Does anyone know if you can find the taping online? I think this guy or whomever is crying is just mad he was having to make the decision. IF he had good reason to wait then whatever but to go crying bc his girl said Marry me or just leave come on. If he was told YOU ARE ON THE AIR then he should have hung up and called her. War of the Roses would constitute a real lawsuit but THIS???

I am not sure what his real name is but I know for sure that it is not Jack Murphy. He made that name up for the radio.

I think that they should be back on first thing Monday morning. I love hearing the things that they do! And they are playing around having a good time but look at what they do with Murphys Kids.

Humiliated Huh you dont know what that is!! I was listneing and I dont know who he is, they didnt say his lastname or where he lived.

I have to agree with Matt,the young man that Jack(ass) Murphy put in such a embarassing position on the radio during this "do or die" segment.The topic of marriage between two people is serious and private.It's amazing that Murphy had just read an email from a 49 year old woman that is a single mother,working multple jobs with no health insurance and has health issues that need attention and she just wanted to know "if anyone cared out there?"Why not give that $1000.00 to her,someone who clearly needs it as opposed to this couple who Jack tried to force into marriage,and did not even need money (according to the young lady's email).Jack (ass) Murphy is your typical Republican that wants to express verbal hope for the poor,but give actual cash to the rich.GET RID OF THE SHOW !!!!!!!!!

Everybody needs to "lighten up". It's a radio! All the world thinks about anymore is suing someone. I personally love Murphy and the crew. Hope they are back real soon.

Well if you don't like funny talk radio, buy some CD's. Nobody is making you listen to that station.

The guy they called needs to lighten up..I don't listen to 107.5, I don't like all the talk talk talk..but he knew he was on the radio so hang up the freakin phone. Sounds like a big baby to me and the girlfriend sounds like she wasted 6 years of her life. She's better off with out him.
Get over it already..bring the crew back. Your talking about peoples jobs here, all over a cry baby...

Lighten Up? How would you feel if some random prick destroys YOUR personal plans? What if this guy really does love her and was planning on proposing this Christmas? He can't do that now, she'll never believe him. What if he wanted to ask her parents first? Good guys do still exist, he handeled that situation like a smart person. He might not deserve to own that station, but I hope his lawyers get him something, and jack goes.

The part about the girlfriend actually wanting to do this is another story, she needs to go. Sounds like another "babymaker wanna be"/gold digger. Jack may have done him a favor there.

Deb, How was your weekend? Would you still want to "lighten up" if Jack Murphy changed your weekend fair plans to include fighting with your partner?

Lets not even mention "war" of the roses. It's wrong. If you want to find out if your boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on you, do it privately. If you want to call in and tell Jack and everyone that wants hear all abut it, fine. This program promotes perverted humor while treating peoples lives, relationships, and reputations like garbage.

So what about all the stuff he does for "Jacks Kids". You can't buy salvation. The kids that listen to his antics while growing up, are going to turn into pricks like him. Yes, kids listen to the radio. After all you are a creature of your environment.

Personally, I am not a big "Murphy in the Morning Show" listener anyway but the guy who was called is obviously a jerk. He probably had no intention to marry the girl, at all, and that is why he was so angry. People don't get angry like that until a nerve is struck. If that wasn't the way he wanted to propose then he should have just hung up the phone and talked to her when he saw her again. Besides, how stupid do you have to be, you say "I do" you get the $1000 then you can do whatever the hell you want, you can still buy the diamond on Christmas or whatever sucky sappy idea he may have had.

Either way, it's done, he's back on the air, and the world is at peace.:-)

BTW-I think "War of the Roses" was brilliant!! If the men were that stupid they deserved to get caught!

So... I don't live in the area to hear the show anymore but I want to know if it got canceled or not? I know its been a while, almost two months. I just found out about this whole situation and wondered what the outcome was.
