Troi Torain, Power 105's DJ Star, has been fired by the station after he spewed racist, violent remarks on air about rival Rashawn Casey, aka DJ Envy of Hot 97, his wife, Gia Casey, and their daughter.
A popular radio personality was fired yesterday after making a series of shockingly ugly, racist and violent on-air remarks - including a threat to sexually molest the young daughter of a rival deejay."

Thanks to Ed Gorman for the heads-up on this. Ed says he can remember when Andy Williams threatened Pat Boone the same way.

  1. I'm all for freedom of expression, but like an potential weapon, should only be used with a modicum of control! That was just sick.

  2. Well, as you remember, Perry Como put a quick and bloody end to the Boone-Williams feud. And Como always seemed so relaxed...the ones you have to watch...
