(San Diego, CA) – 760 KFMB is proud to announce the arrival of San Diego’s newest morning radio program, “The Armstrong & Getty Show”.  The popular program, featuring Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty, makes its San Diego debut at 6am on Monday, June 3rd 2013.


A twenty-year team, Jack and Joe have been known for years as one of California’s most popular and funny morning shows.  “We’re a couple of white men who occasionally get angry, but we’re not two angry white men,” says Getty.  Armstrong adds that the show is based in humor, “it’s hard to be too serious, for too long.”  Both men have families with kids, and they spend their time on the air equally talking about their lives, pop culture and occasionally politics.  Getty says that San Diegans can expect the pair to “skewer the news, and we’re quite proud of the fact that there are a lot of laughs on this show in any given hour”. 
“Like any great radio morning show, Armstrong and Getty have that unique ability to not only …

Jerry Coleman - SanDiegoRadio Spotlight

Image
By Joe Nelson
   This edition of the monthly SanDiegoRadio Spotlight is very special to me. I remember as a kid listening to Jerry Coleman late into the night calling the Padres games on my little radio. I owe a big thank you to my friend, Petco Park PA Announcer Frank Anthony for helping me get this interview.
   Jerry invited me into his home, made me coffee and we sat in his living room which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and we chatted for almost an hour and a half. We covered a little radio, but as you know, his life is so full of events, it was hard to stay on one topic.


Joe: Jerry, how are you these days?
Jerry: Well, I'm 88 now. This eye went on me (points to his eye), and I'm in my second operation and it's coming along fine. When you are my age, and I am the oldest broadcaster in baseball, sorry to say, the eyes can give you trouble.
JN: How did you come to work in San Diego?
JC: I tried to get the job with the Padres when they came into the league in 1969, but no luck…
