New Radio Margaritaville DJ

Post by Jolyn928 »

As a daily RM listener am I the ONLY one who can't stand hearing the new DJ Jasmine? Her voice, her delivery...it all just grates at my nerves . [smilie=sarcasm.gif] I miss Carson :(

Also, Hi everyone! I stumbled across the forum after googling Carson's passing.

Can't say I've heard her, yet. But don't listen much more than my drive to and from work. (And welcome!) :)

Maybe it's just me then :) I had a hard time learning to like Matt Hoggatt too when he first started. Thanks so much for the welcome! :)

I wouldn't consider myself a fan of Matt by any means...but this Jasmine and her 'valley girl' voice makes me like him MUCH more! Lol

She really is quite lame! I heard her earlier in the week and thought she was a temporary DJ...I found this forum (and the news about Carson) when I googled her name. Maybe she's just nervous and will get better with time? ~fingers crossed~!

Thank you for the welcome! Hopefully, with time she'll improve. It has to be an intimidating job in the beginning, Tonight I switched from Radio Margaritaville to my downloaded albums while she was on. :-?

I’m sorry but she sounds like she doesn’t even know who jimmy Buffett is. This has to be her first radio gig.

I agree. When I listened to her she seemed clueless about anything Jimmy. Sign me up! I think I would kill it :D :pirate:

Jasmine and Matt are both just awful. At least Matt knows about Jimmy. I'd love to know how she got the gig.
It was too much tequila . . . . or not quite enough.

I only listen to RM in the car and it isn't the only station I listen to so I've never heard the new DJ, or Matt Hoggatt. But I have to say, I like Kirsten a lot more than I used to. When she's on, I'll leave RM on more than when the other DJs are on.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

I'm not a fan of Matt's by any means, but you're right, at least he has some knowledge about Jimmy and the RM playlist. I simply cannot find a single redeeming quality for Jasmine, though. She sounds downright clueless every time she cracks the mic! Given the fact she's based in Nashville, my hunch is that she's a pal of Kirsten, who I believe makes the programming decisions these days. I do hope she improves, but this is a tough sell right now.

Just randomly ranking the DJs from Best to Worst, I would go with the following...

1) JD
2) Steve H
3) Sara West
4) Kirsten
5-98) Just about anyone with a working vocal chord
99) Hoggatt
100) Jasmine

Side note...is anyone able to record Ravi’s Fruitcake on the Radio segment. A quick glance at replays and it looks like I’ll either be sleeping or working.
