Ask the Best and Brightest: What Should John Wolfe Name His Dallas Car Talk (oops) Radio Show?

Although there’s nothing routine about him, John Wolfe is a stand up guy. A regular here at TTAC. A shining example of our Best and Brightest. While I’m trying to keep the word “fire” as far away from this sentence as possible, I think we can all admit that even the most insightful commentator hereabouts occasionally draws a blank. So it’s no surprise that this appeal to his fellow carmudgeons across the e-transom, of which I share with you.

My radio show is fixing to morph into a three-hour Saturday morning program on CBS radio in Dallas. We’re still keeping the small town affiliate network, but big D is the obvious focal point considering the entire listenership population of my current 6 affiliates totals 10% of the population of the new affiliate. I have the concept down pat in my mind, but I need a name. Something punchy, cocky, demands attention. Currently there are two Saturday morning talkers in the DFW market “Wheels with Ed Wallace” and “The Car Guy” (Jerry Reynolds auto advise show). [Being a modest, low-key kinda guy] I really like the name “King of Cars.” However, that idea came from a popular show on A&E TV [about a scumbag four-square wielding Chrysler dealer]. Any ideas?

    Robert Farago : "Motor Mouth. Perfect." Agreed - let me check with this girl I know to see if it's OK to use her nickname... :-)

    OMG!!! Somebody needs to put the brakes on this guy. Once he gets his mouth shifted into gear it's gonna be one wild ride.

  • Jwolfe Jwolfe on Jul 19, 2009 is the show bio. Went with 'The Real Deal' first show had excellent comments and over 100 callers. Thanks for all of your suggestions. CBS nixed many of my name ideas (most I got from yall) real deal=simple, to the point. Tune in saturdays on the stream at or above, if in DFW then 105.3
