Mischke's silver lining


The weather has gone cold, and so has the story on T. D. Mischke's unexpected firing from AM 1500. As his second week off the air gets underway, lips are still buttoned. But a YouTube video has surfaced over the weekend, and its humor and good nature should be just the balm that Mischke's numerous disenfranchised need in these dark days of broadcasting.

Co-starring Mischke's long time friend and supporter Mark Moeller (whose loyalty was so great that he yanked his ad spots from AM 1500 in the wake of the firing), it's the kind of upbeat treatment of a serious matter that made Mischke's show so engaging. At the very least, it should set some minds at ease until the cold facts start hitting the floor.
