Bruce Da Moose: Banned From Best Buy ... For Life
June 12, 2008 at 11:59 AM (PT)
BEASLEY Top 40 WXKB (B103.9)/FT. MYERS MD/afternooner BRUCE DA MOOSE heard that PLIES was doing an in-store signing for crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Rhythmic WBTT (105-5 THE BEAT) at the local BEST BUY, and so he and PD MATT JOHNSON took the B103.9 van and strategically parked it -- right in front of WBTT's van.
Well, the BEST BUY store manager asked BRUCE to move their van, and he "forgot" to do it after claiming he "needed to check with the boss." So, the manager came out again ... and threatened to call the sherrif, even though BRUCE had just moved the B103.9 van to a parking space.
The sherrif arrived, and the manager was pointing at BRUCE. So, BRUCE walked over to "smooth things" out explaining he only wanted to have PLIES "sign a few CDs for listeners" when the manager uttered the "T-Word" ... trespassing.
The sheriff promptly issued MISTAH MOOSE a "trespassing ticket" and informed BRUCE that he was "banned for life" from that BEST BUY. Gosh, FRY's just got all of BRUCE's biz! But the real question: "Will these two stations be meeting in the streets again ... soon?"
