Don Geronimo's Request Fuels Station Uproar

CBS RADIO Talk KHTK-A/SACRAMENTO middayer DON GERONIMO got into some hot water with his own station's staffers after making an on-air plea to "help supersize a radio station's holiday display." According to the SACRAMENTO BEE, the plea prompted listeners to drop off more than a dozen live and artificial CHRISTMAS trees.
Unfortunately, some station employees were allergic to the live trees. GERONIMO kept listeners a blow-by-blow description of the dispute, which grew more caustic over time.
Eventually, the dozen or so offending trees were taken to a homeless shelter.
