Best Satellite Radio DJ New York 2005 - HANDSOME DICK MANITOBA

Yeh, HANDSOME DICK MANITOBA (nicknamed by Bangs and Tosches) saw hard times post-Dictators and even sold Christmas trees on the West Side Highway for scratch (Wotta shandah). Decades later, he's become the best DJ on Sirius satellite radio. Joan Jett is cool but listless. Mojo Nixon shouts too much. But word for word, hip for hip, Manitoba's got it down on Sirius's Underground Garage. Even though he bitches about the Dictators, the ranting feels real, funny, almost kindhearted, just slightly bitter. And the barkeep's voice, deepish if not mellifluous, suits itself to radio. His ego's too puffed up, but it always was. And that's the essence of radio DJs, anyway.

Handsome Dick all the way. I've known him a lot of years, seen him play with his band Wild Kingdom as well as Joey Ramone. This guy is NY Rocker all the way, as well as a gentleman and a scholar!!!
