Tommy Mischke has his own radio show, in his closet. He was fired from AM1500 KSTP on December 5th, 2008 for doing what he normally does: calling people on live radio who don't realize they're on live radio. He has his fun with them, most of the time ending in a good chuckle for everyone present, but this landed him on his poh poh outside of the talk station. Besides this pesky little FCC violation, it could have been the tirade Mischke went on dissecting the audacity of Mickey D's plan to sell their french fries as the hell-thy vegetables part of the food pyramid. AM1500 was in talks with McDonalds about a huge deal involving them and the twins. Mischke hit a nerve he didn't even know to avoid.
May 2009 arrives and City Pages now hosts the broadcast outcast. He broadcasts from a sound booth tucked away in his St. Paul bungalow, smoking a cigar every now and then, and providing his listeners to a show truly provided by Summit Beer, one of the show's 4 pillar sponsors, along with All Inc, R.F. Moeller Jewelers, and Fury Motors. The show's format has changed slightly, to one containing slightly more interviews, with more depth and seriousness to the content, but Mischke is still Mischke, and if you're lucky you can hear him fooling a collection agent, interview a right winger and push them to their ideals limits, or simply commenting and building on the already quirky news of the day.
City Pages has done the world a favor by providing an outlet for one of radio's genius. What Rush Limbaugh did for conservative radio, Mischke has done for the radio listener who doesn't know what they want.
