Has Barry Young jumped the shark?

"Why do you ask?" you ask. Well, seems that "Cruella Michella Buffy Lee" Larson — Young's producer and straight gal — is out of town on vacation this week. Yet she's still slogging through two full hours with the Mouth that Bored every day ... by telephone! Barry can't hang for even a week without her?

I sincerely hope this marks the end of the end for the "Nearly Famous Barry Young," a news talk-talk show that's taken way too long to die. You'd have to search dilligently to find a bigger waste of Phoenix air time — indeed, of Phoenix air — than Barry Young.

Gives a new wrinkle on "phoning it in" I reckon...

Been trying to give all the local shows a listen as I prepare the 2006 edition of State of Talk Radio in the Valley.

Only plus I can tally for the nearly finished one is that he'll probably score higher than the Larry Gaysdosz show...
Well, the early morning guy is worse.
This guy is the worst. There was a time when there was some thought behind his show, but now he is a fifth rate jokester, a poor man’s Howard Stern. One day I caught him spewing out hate about Native Americans giving stupid names to their casinos. Little did he know that “Bucky” was a real person, who statue is outside the Prescott courthouse.
Barry young is married to Kim Komando, the computer wiz, who is a pretty gal but has a voice like a truck driver (that keeps him in line I guess).
Barry,
Your show is 75% commercials, your "Buffy Lee" stuff is frivolous, I don't waste my time anymore with what was once a great show. Goodbye Barry
I like him And everybody on the show. I think its the greatest. Makes my day.
He's local, interesting, and has a great sense of humor. If you don't like it, just don't listen and leave the rest of us alone.
Liberals thrive on ignorance and hate the truth. Hence why they hate Barry Young. Do think Castro stepped down today for a possible Vice Presidnet run with either Hillarious or Obamanation?
I enjoy the "Nearly famous Barry Young"
show daily.
I like the chatting and joking.
I enjoy the "on the edge" humor.
Keep it going.

I LOVE BARRY YOUNG. HIS SHOW IS EXCELLENT AND MICHELLE IS THE BEST TOO
FOLKS WHO DONT LIKE THE SHOW DO NOT LIKE THE TRUTH
Anyone who bangs Kim Komando on a regular basis is OK in my book... I'm jealous
Why did Kim marry that geezer Barry Young? Is it a daddy thing?
You poor, pathetic, hateful people. Barry Young is a legend in Phoenix radio and it is clearly eating you miseable liberals alive. So in response to your tantrum-esk comments I offer Mr. Young my congratulations:"Job well done... You got to them!"
I love Barry & Michelle and think they are a perfect compliment to each other. It is also nice to have a local show since all the rest I listen to are syndicated. They really help me start my day off with a smile...
He doesn't say much, but he says it hilariously.

So this thread started a year and a half ago and... you fools didn't get your wish, he's at least as popular as ever, and I'll do all I can to help him stay that way.

IT MUST BE HARD FOR BARRY TO SIT NEXT TO THAT FOXY BUFFY LEE FOR TWO HOURS EACH DAY. WHAT A SEXY VOICE, THATS BUFFYS VOICE OF COURSE.
if you dont like the way he drives ---- stay off the sidewalk !!! GO B.Y.GO, your still number ONE ! ! !
His show regularly ranks in the top 5 of ALL radio shows broadcast in AZ(not just their time slot). And it usually hits #1 at least once a year.

If you're thinking that his show is going away I have some ocean-front property in Gila Bend that I would like to sell to you...
Berry is LAME
His show sucks too!
