Video: West Seattle’s Marty Riemer returning to The Mountain?

That just-published clip is the second in a series of video hints, posted to YouTube and shared via the home page and Facebook page for 103.7 The Mountain radio, further enhances speculation that West Seattle online/on-air personality Marty Riemer is about to rejoin the station that booted him and on-air partner Jodi Brothers in fall 2009. He and Brothers, who also lives in this area, have been podcasting from Riemer’s basement for much of that time – but she just (a) had a baby and (b) announced she’ll be with the Bob Rivers Show when it arrives at 95.7 FM this spring. The Riemer-returning speculation started with both the departure of the DJ who took over morning at The Mountain after him, and then with the first video hint earlier this week (note the West Seattle scenery, plus another West Seattleite, The Mountain’sdirector Shawn Stewart). As today’s clip says in the final frame, there’s news coming Monday; we’re checking with Riemer to seek at the very least a golden-voiced “no comment.”

    If it happens I will turn the dial back to 103.7 but not until then.

    If this is indeed true, I wonder if a video will be shot in-studio, of station management eating humble pie? :lol:

    I loved the last line of that clip “as long as it’s not mornings”.

    This makes me so happy. Its nice to see good things happen to good people, a rarity in the entertainment business.

  • ad January 14, 2011 (1:24 pm)

    I wouldn’t return after they booted me. Another radio station should take him on!

  • d January 14, 2011 (1:27 pm)

    wishy-washy business, that radio biz.

  • koni January 14, 2011 (1:37 pm)

    I hope he gets a big raise!!! ;)

    we west seattleites are a loyal bunch and marty’s deserving of our loyalty! if he goes back to the mountian, my dial would find him there once again but in all honesty, my respect for mainstream radio was lost when they made the initial decision to can him and jodi over a year ago.

    Good for these guys getting back on the air. Talk radio etc.. has really got bad in Seattle lately.

  • RainyDay1235 January 14, 2011 (2:27 pm)

    Love Marty. Funny, ran into him a few weeks ago and he spoke of how nice it is not to answer to anyone, LOL. We shall see..I’d tune back in too!

  • ambria January 14, 2011 (2:45 pm)

    wow, I didn’t know the mountain still had DJs. (just kidding, kind of.)

  • Tucker January 14, 2011 (2:56 pm)

    Much as I love the podcast – and that it’s from West Seattle – I’ll be happy to hear Marty back on the Mountain. And he doesn’t belong at any other station in the market. (No offense, Jack FM.)

  • Oliver January 14, 2011 (6:33 pm)

    I quit listening when they got rid of Marty and Jodi, but I’d go back if they brought him back. I’d like Jodi back, too, but will take what we can get.

  • Jeff January 14, 2011 (7:00 pm)

    Hmm. I was at Verite the other day and he was sitting at a table talking with several people about how well the podcast was going and how much he koved doing it.

    By the way, this video is a parody of the homeless radio guy video that was on Youtube and has been all over the media the last two weeks.

  • John January 14, 2011 (7:00 pm)

    Jodi’s going to Bob… What about Moira??? Happy to see both of them getting paying gigs, as fickle as radio can be.

  • JanS January 14, 2011 (7:25 pm)

    I, too, am one that has not listened to 103.7 once since Marty left. Hope they’re making it worth his while. Working out of your basement can’t possibly be that lucrative…and he has a fairly new child, too.

    Wonder how long it took the station to figure out that they had made a colossal mistake..

  • Lisa January 14, 2011 (10:07 pm)

    At least this says Marty is coming back and the KMTT website has pictures and videos there. Starts afternoons on Jan 24th.

    • WSB January 14, 2011 (10:44 pm)

      Lisa – when we swapped FB mail with Marty earlier in the day, they were still trying to keep things under wraps till Monday morning, FWIW. But it was clear from correspondence we had with a variety of sources that the guesses weren’t offbase, so I have no reason to doubt the Weekly link you shared. The formal announcement is due 7 am Monday, according to station management – TR

  • MmeFab January 14, 2011 (10:36 pm)

    For the record, I’m still mourning the loss of John & Mike in the morning. But I turned the radio off completely after Marty & Jodi left. Curious to hear what happens next!

  • kay sheen January 14, 2011 (10:41 pm)

    IF Marty comes back can we all have the mountain music lounge in Mexico again ?? Please please please !

Sorry, comment time is over.
