Alan Jones sums up "dickheads in the corporate world" quite succinctly.
Alan wasn't referring to his boss Adam Lang directly, but I'd say if the cap fits!!!!!!
Adam Lang is the radio genius who knew better than everyone else.
He bought this 'live' cricket commentary package for the entire World Cup series - from a couple of blokes with a television set in a garage in India.
This is the bloke he bought the commentary "rights" from - Raman Raheja, self-confessed dreamer and "serial" entrepreneur.
So, how much would you expect to pay for an Adam Lang?
The man who mismanaged contract negotiations with Alan Jones so badly they had to be rescued by Chairman Russell Tate?
The man who destroyed 2UE?
The man who's just shafted Chris Smith?
$60,000 per month.
$713,000 to 30 June 2018.
Probably more this current FY.
Bet the sales, engineering, production, marketing, finance, administrative and other real workers at 2GB, 4BC and 3AW are thrilled.
Just like the dozens of their colleagues who've had their careers killed by a "dickhead in the white shirt who said he couldn't take the show".
Being involved in producing great radio is a bit like being a jazz musician.
"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"!
You either have it, or you don't.
And if you have to ask the question, Adam, you don't.
