Goodbye – For Now – DMN Will Be Back!



I’m sorry to say that Dark Matter News is on temporary hiatus. The program will return in radio syndication very soon. If you’re looking for someone to blame – it’s Keith Rowland. Three months of his hatefulness is all I could stand. So please pardon the interruption – we’ll be back on many more radio stations in better time slots soon. Tonight’s program is a rerun as was last night’s. This will be the final MITD Dark Matter News broadcast.

I have made it clear to Art that I would gladly return – but its a Rowland or me situation.  So if you want Dark Matter News to continue on Midnight in The Desert – email [email protected]

    I dont know anything about this dispute, but the timing of your decision is highly suspicious in light of the fact that you just accepted a big money offer from SnoreSteins’ employer. You’ve always been about the money, and it’s rather disingenuous not to inform the audience of the money angle here. In any case I salute your writers for not joining you in prostituting yourself to Premiere & ClearChannel. Those greedheads are obviously freaking out at the prospect of facing some real competition. I stand with Art and I am not going to pester him on behalf of an insincere, money-grubbing carpetbagger. Good riddance, dude.

    All I know is that I loved how you guys seemed to work so well with Art’s show. Perfect combination. I will miss you and sorry you and Art/Keith couldn’t make it work.

    Allegedly written and leaked by a government officer involved with ultra-top-secret programs. It’s an encyclopedia of sort, regarding intelligent extraterrestrial species. Could it be that our government works with living flesh and blood extraterrestrials? Or is this just a massive hoax?
    Give it a read, believe it or not, you’ll definitely get chills.

    I like Leo, I can understand why he doesn’t want to work with snobby people. I don’t as well. More power to you Leo hope you come back. It really is a good news broadcast…

    Art has been with Keith for as long as I can remember almost. There is no way he would choose you over Keith. It would be like taking the motor out of your car before a Sunday drive. It wont work. But it will do fine without any news. Now on the other hand I’m sorry to hear this. I was just starting to enjoy the DMN. As a matter a fact on Thursday nights show he was touting about how hard you work and that you were a major asset. Art sure is fickle. Good luck man. I bet they use your time to allow more commercials to be on more stations. I think Art is obsessed with turning Coast to Coast to Coast to Toast. Time will tell. I hope he can at least become as big. And I hope you can iron this out. Thanks for all you did to Mr. Ashcroft. Godspeed.

    Can’t we all just … get along?? Seriously I hope you and Keith can work it out as your news broadcast was a perfect match for MITD. Hope Keith is reading this too!! You do a great job Leo.

  7. you gave your Boss an ultimatum, you, or the guy he’s worked with for 20 years, and then bad mouth him all over the internet. Good luck with that one pal.
