MC Phat Lukey

Lukey will begin addressing the city peoples via a new weekly radio address that will air on KDKA 1020 AM.

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said he plans to take to the airwaves each week to “speak directly to citizens on topics that are important to them.”

Mr. Ravenstahl said his broadcasts on KDKA-AM will air at 7:06 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The first of the taped broadcasts today will focus on the city’s “Third Renaissance” Downtown and in various neighborhoods.

Possible topics I’d like to see covered:

  • The Crater on Beechwood that Swallowed Your Car Whole? LOL.
  • Parking Enforcement Until 10 p.m.: We Swear the Ten New People We Have to Hire Will Be Worth It.
  • Downtown: New Ways We Can Make it A Ghost Town
  • The Pension: KABLOOEY!
  • The South Side: My Top Ten Favorite Bars
  • The Day I Issued a Proclamation to Myself
  • Famous People I’d Like to Meet
  • Win a Date with Luke Ravenstahl
  • The Dread Lord Zober: How Not to Be Destroyed By Him
  • A Ninja, a Taser-Resistant Drunk, and a Zombie Walk Into a Bar …

Possible DJ Names:

  • Hizzoner Master R
  • MC Phat L
  • Luke Doom
  • Lil Lukey R
  • Tha Big D on G Street
  • King Luke
  • Snoop Lukey Luke

I could go on all day.

    I have a horse and there was a famous one with the name Luke in its registered name, so I’m throwing it out there cause it’s fitting for this AW:

    THIS is the press release from the Mayor’s office I’m most eager–as a disgruntled city resident–to see:

    Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl announced today that he will accept an offer to become the Secretary of Silly Walks in the newly-inaugurated Palin Administration, and that he will step down from his current position immediately.

    Wow, really pushing the envelope to embrace this new technology– what do they call it — radio? And on KDKA, no less! They serve their audience – dead people – better than any other station in town. What next, Lukey on FM? Now that’s high-tech!

    I hope KDKA has room on their schedule between all the snake oil salesmen, erectile disfunction and “make-your-child-a star” ads. The station that had “The Gunner” and the Pirates, “Uncle” Ed Shaughnessy, and Jack Bogut is now filled with whining, angry old men.

    @Julia #8: Yes, it was a movie and a damn good one. It gave us “Sometimes nothin’ is a real cool hand.” and “What we have here is failure to communicate.” Both seem somehow sadly appropriate at the moment.

    I liked MC Jagoff best, by the way.

    I actually have a soft spot for Mayor Dweeb, but that’s just me.
