Bond Picks Up AM Drive Shift On KLINK 104

with one comment

(RIKERS ISLAND, NEW YORK) – Former midstate shock jock Bruce Bond is up to his old antics again, this time as morning host at the official radio station at the Rikers Island jail.
Days after Bond was incarcerated for allegedly running a $4.3 million international check-forging scheme, star disc jockey Farnsworth “Sharky” Johnson was released, creating a morning drive opening on KLINK 104.
Bond’s co-hosts include his 20-year-old cellmate, who has the distinction of becoming the second young man upon whom Bond has bestowed the name “Stretch,” and another male inmate who wears excessive makeup and answers to the name “Bubbles.”
While Bond has reportedly been able to maintain a sizable audience, authorities said the suicide rate at the prison has quadrupled since he took to the airwaves. “If you’ve heard him on the air, you probably realize that’s no coincidence,” said John Theobald, the superintendent at the jail.
Bond chose to be incarcerated at Rikers Island due to its reputation for gratuitous strip-searches and senseless beatings, said his attorney, Patrick Michael Megaro.
