NJ 101.5 To Continue Their Tradition of Pretending To Be About New Jersey

By Tommy DeSeno

I’m sure you remember the row that took place a few years back when it was revealed that “Jersey Guys” Craig Carton and Ray Rossi weren’t exactly Jersey Guys.
It all blew up when that shivering pantywaist Carton ran away from the studio in fear because the state police held a presser and pictured a copy of his license plate, showing he was a “Pennsylvania” guy.  Carton actually claimed people would try to hurt him, and left the state. What a punk.  It was his second time running like a rabbit.  The first time fled the studio was when he thought Dick Codey was going to kick his ass for taking cheap shots at Mrs. Codey.  I wish Codey had.
Rossi is a guy who spent most of his life not from here, but moved here to take the Jersey gig.  Not exactly a Jersey Guy himself.
Carton left and was replaced by a new “Jersey Guy,” Californian Casey Bartholemew.
The only Jersey connection I could see to the show was frequent guest and Gannett writer Bob Ingle.  However I can’t tell you how Bob did because I refused to listen after the hypocrisy of a station whose tag line is “Not New York…Not Philadelphia”  was revealed to be “not New Jersey, either.”
Now the faux New Jersey station has fired the faux Jersey Guys and are bringing back the old team of Deminski and Doyle –  who have been DJs in Michigan for the past 12 years.
Still not “Jersey enough” for me to listen.

    It never ceases to amaze me just how often Tommy DeSeno makes an ass out of himself. I guess some guys will do anything for a little attention.

    Property records are available online for anyone to see (e.g., see the Data Universe feature on the app.com web site).

    Erasmo “Ray” Rossi and his wife, Lynn, have owned and lived in the same home in Manalapan, New Jersey since 1987. That seems pretty Jersey to me.

    Bob Ingle is a Georgia native. Ingle was born in Georgia. Ingle grew up in Georgia. Ingle went to college in Georgia. Ingle lived and worked in several other states before moving to New Jersey late in life. That doesn’t seem all that Jersey to me.

    My friend Bob Ingle would object to your characterization of his move to New Jersey as “late in life.”

    LOL. Yeah, I’m sure he would.

    […] good as the show was, my friend Tommy DeSeno is right.   As talented as they are, Casey, Rossi and Ingle are not really Jersey guys.  Casey’s from […]

    More than happy that the “Jersey” Guys are off the air. Casey was an obnoxious, self-righteous twit. Rossi seemed like a decent guy. Maybe not I’ll start listening to 101.5 at drive time again. But yeah, I agree how about some home grown talent?

    Boy, I must be getting old. I remember Deminski and Doyle and I always thought of their show as being better than Carton & Rossi or Casey and Rossi. It is hard to beleive it has been 12 years that they have left. It won’t matter anymore, because I am sure that 101.5 won’t be calling them the Jersey Guys…

  7. Bob English said at 7:01 pm on July 3rd, 2011:

    I’m glad they are gone. I got sick of listening to them attacking public workers. It was their right to do so but to mix in some lies just to try prove their point to the sheep made the show unlistenable.
