Morton in the Morning on Ellen WITH VIDEO

By Joe Nelson
Z90 San Diego's "Morton in the Morning" show pops up on ELLEN!!
   Z90 Morning show,"Morton in the Morning" had guest Marlon Wayans in studio to promote his movie A Haunted House 2 and asked for him to take a selfie with them. 

   The next day that picture popped up on The Ellen Show as Marlon himself explained that he was the,"King of Selfies". Show host Rick Morton said, "I was watching Ellen and then next thing I see is our picture on her big screen! I immediately thought, 'Hey, that's us!' cool!" I guess it never hurts to ask for the selfie these days!!

 See the video Here ---> ELLEN Scroll on right side for Marlon Wayans clip

SanDiegoRadio Social Mixer

By Joe Nelson
   I have been considering hosting a social mixer at a local restaurant (possibly Cafe Coyote in Old Town in a banquet room), to give current and former radio folks a chance to mingle.

   While we do have the annual San Diego County Fair Media Preview Night in late May, and Marilyn Hyder's Radio Reunion in September, I think there could be room for another. I am shooting for early July.
   If you are interested, please e-mail me at and I will add you to the list. I will also be creating a private group on Facebook this week do the information can be privately shared there. If we are not already currently friends on FB, you can find me at

Spread the word!

   As always, thanks for tuning in to SanDiegoRadio!

He was generous with his time and talents to many local charities. Clip is survived by his daughter, April Rutter, his two granddaughters, Karlie and Kaitlyn Rutter, and his sister Carl Helps. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no memorial service.

Awful Quiet in Radioland

By Joe Nelson
   This sure is a slow time! I promise I am still here, waiting for something to report. Certainly not just going to make stuff up. Keep in mind SanDiegoRadio is here at your disposal. On-air, off air news, promotions, certainly employment opportunities for folks looking for work. Send it over, I will run it. 

Also, nothing new on the possibilities of a morning show change. But I am monitoring it. 

Thanks as always for tuning in!
