Here’s a story…of a girl named Gabby! Back in 2000, I found Gabby serving up drinks at a Chicago watering hole (anyone who knows me KNOWS which one). We got into a conversation about movies, and WOW did she have a mouthful to say! After a minute or two, I KNEW this was material worthy of being on the radio. So, Gabby started phoning in these reviews to the show each week on WXXY. After a slew of phone calls & e-mails came in response, I decided to bring Gabby into the studio.
Gabby continued with the bits every Thursday night until I left The 80s Channel. I tried to bring her with me to 94.7 The Zone, but my boss just blew off the idea (among other things). Once I left for Energy 92-7 & 5, Gabby followed closely behind. When Energy went off-air in 2003, Gab took her reviews to 103.5 Kiss-FM. After being jerked around by those guys for a couple weeks, Gabby’s “colorful” reviews vanished into radio history.
I’ve found MOST of the bits from The 80s Channel and have posted them here for your listening enjoyment! Gabby and I still see each other from time to time, and would LOVE to do a full radio show together someday. Or, at the least, bring “Guttermouth Gabby – The Angry Critic” back to the radio!
