When WHFS went off the air suddenly last year, the city lost a good radio station, but there was one thing that made me happy: The Junkies went off the air. Four guys who clearly haven’t left college mentally, and are stuck in some sort of bizarro Peter Pan situation. Unable to grow up into men, they’re stuck in some awkward teenage phase, complete with jargon, obsession with boobs and an enlarged ego concerning their sports knowledge. Well, they’re back. In January they’re taking over WJFK’s morning drivetime slot.
Expect lots of inside jokes, DC/Maryland accents, calling people “donkey” and more vapid sports discussion. You want sports junkies? Put Wilbon and Kornheiser on the air. These guys are living out their Wayne’s World dream on the radio, and sadly we get to pay the price with yet another dead station on the dial.
