07/26/2004: "Joe Schmo 2"

This is a picture I shot a while ago of a model named Tim Herzog for a hair care products ad. You can see him on the Spike TV show Joe Schmo 2. That's not what I really wanted to talk about here though. I really want to talk about the guy who plays the main character in the show. His name is Ralph Garman. There's a morning show here in Los Angeles on KROQ that has a knack for graduating it's members to TV. Aside from Ralph, both Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla are Kevin and Bean show alumni. It's just so weird watching the people that you're so used to just listening to for years. Especially when they have to disguise him with the worst bleached hair job ever. Anyway, I just wanted to get a picture up because it's been a while. Oh, both Carson Daly and Kennedy of MTV fame also worked at KROQ before they moved on.

During the brief time that I lived in LA (3 months, Altair Place, Venice Beach)in the '90s, I remember KROQ playing Soul Coughing's "Screenwriter's Blues" ("It is five a.m. and you are listening... to Los Angeles..."wink ...and I felt like they were playing it just for me.
That's what KROQ means to me.

That song hit even closer to home for me because of my proximity to Reseda. Wow, three months. You got in and got out quick! Was it the roller skating guitar player that made you realize it wasn't the place for you?

It's so weird that to us Carson Daly was just this kid on the radio. Now he dates movie stars.

But the question on all our minds... What ever became of KROQ's "Poor Man"?!

Believe it or not, this is the same Poorman:

the roller skating guitar player was part of it, but so was the soap opera that was my life then. I had an ex-boyfriend chase/stalk me all the way from Massachusetts to San Francisco. I hid out in Venice with a friend of mine until he got the hint and left.

Didn't Ryan Seacrest do a stint on there?

No, but they made much fun of him starting before he got on TV. He works at one of the top 40 stations. KIIS FM. They truly suck ass. You may have heard of their old bag of hot air morning DJ Rick Dees.

Yes, the "Disco Duck" guy.

Brooks said @ 07/28/2004 09:04 AM PST

Ex's who stalk can truly be scary. I'm glad you're done with that.

joe schmo (1 and 2) is one of the funniest shows going. and ralph garman is the shit.

"now it is time for one of you to leave the life of luxury and go back to your pathetic existence...working for the Man."

I just realized after re-reading this post that I give the impression that Ralph Garman is no longer on the Kevin and Bean Show on KROQ. I just wanted to clear up that he is still on that show. And he is the shit for sure. Copygodd, you should go to kroq.com and listen to some of the morning show clips with Ralph. Some are your basic stupid skits, but there are some gems there too.
