A lot of Michael Floorwax fans (and a few detractors) responded to our post about the longtime 103.5 The Fox radio personality's recent, and still largely unexplained, absence from the airwaves.

Here's one of many testimonials about him.

Zach Sheesh writes:

In the 21 years I've been in this business he was one of the few that was always kind and true to himself. Wax is an epic pro.

Anyone who ever listened to the show with half a brain cell can figure what happened to Wax -he usually declared it on a daily basis. If that is the case, only he can decide to bring himself out of it. I hope he does. We miss you Waxy-loo, come back to us.


And for all the haters, what kind of sad, miserable existence you must have if you can only slam a guy when he's down. Most of Wax's humor is cultural and media references that an intelligent person would have to think about, but I suppose it's much easier to not get it and say it's not funny. 


Rick Lewis on the other hand is a family man and has ALWAYS been the straight guy on air -to say he's not funny is to prove you don't even know the dynamics of the show and probably never even listened to it.

Lewis and Floorwax stopped being funny about 15 years ago. Too bad, cause at one point they were hilarious.

They're both ignorant racist dumbasses. I hope he never returns.. Even if it means he has cancer. They're so outdated....They do make per fect Clear Channel bitches.

I was one of the detractors. If he is suffering a personal set back I hope he overcomes it. I just don't like their show or Clear Channel.

Did not know he was off air but if he is good. I listen to Sirus radio. He sucked a decade ago and I am sure his shit is the same old tired bullshit.

I don't think anyone cares. Westword has nothing else to write about. Every time I actually click a Westword link, I instantly regret it. Terrible stuff

Wouldn't most jobs need an explanation?

Wax and I came up together in the heyday of the 80's comedy boom. We were good friends and traveled extensively around the US. He was always committed to his craft, and worked hard to become better. Even though I don't always see eye to eye with him on some political issues, he is one of the good guys.
