If you liked your Dicky Barret in the morning, you're not alone. His Mighty Morning Show disappeared from the Indie 103.1 airwaves this week and radio listeners are bemoaning its loss all over the internets.

Mack Reed over at LA Voice got the complete scoop. While management says Barret left on his own, one fan says he got an e-mail from Dicky that said he'd been fired, plain and simple. Since the show disappeared without warning, and it was virtually erased from the 103.1 website, we're inclined to go with fired.

Now the station is calling for audition tapes. The ad says, in part, "Send your stuff to [program director Michael Steele] msteele@entravision.com." Or you could, uh, drop him a note telling him what kind of morning show you'd like to hear.
