http://www.pushinthebay.com – PART 1 of 6 – Another PTBTV / Pushin’ The Bay TV Bay Area classic – The Dog House (JV & Elvis) on Wild 94.9 featuring Ray Luv, Gary Archer, and local Bay Area talent on 1/21/05.
The Dog House was an American radio talk show co-hosted by JV (Jeff Vandergrift) and Elvis (Dan Lay). The show was most recently based in New York City on 92.3 Free FM, and previously aired on ClearChannel’s Wild 94.9 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The New York show was canceled in May 2007, due to a controversy over a segment that it aired involving a prank call to a Chinese restaurant. The co-hosts and the producer were subsequently fired by the station and CBS Radio. In March 2008, they began broadcasting a new show via the web.
The Dog House stars JV and Elvis. The two met in 1993 and have been radio cohosts together for over 15 years, (along with JV’s high school friend and show producer “Hollywood” Lance Otani) starting on Hot 97.7 in San Jose, California. In 1995, program directors Michael Martin and Joe Cunningham of Wild 107 eagerly hired them to fill a timeslot vacated by Mancow Muller. The Dog House quickly became a household name after joining Wild 107.7 (which subsequently moved to Wild 94.9), as they became the #1 rated morning show in the Bay Area receiving higher ratings than Howard Stern; only to be terminated several years later due to off-air controversy. Shortly after being fired from Wild 94.9, they helped launch KIFR at the end of 2005 before moving to New York City, where they joined 92.3 Free FM. The new show went under the title JV & Elvis during the first few months until the hosts revived The Dog House name. Two years later they were fired again by CBS Radio in New York for an on-air prank.
The Dog House host a show on their website. It is a multimedia broadcast enabling them to display pictures and video as well as audio. On May 15, 2008, Elvis left, expressing a desire to return to terrestrial radio. JV continues to host the show alone. On February 16, 2009, JV announced he will be coming back to Wild 94.9, the same station that he and the Dog House were fired from in 2005. Currently the only person that will be returning to Wild is JV, the other ex members have moved on to different things. JV’s show started on Monday February 23 and airs 6am-10am.
