Limbaugh was stale over a decade ago when I was still a RWNJ. Hannity was always unlistenable to me, and hacks like Savage didn’t even try to hide their contempt for their audience, with Savage frequently walking out of his third hour and re-running his first hour or a canned program.

I guess there are still plenty of people who listen to this crap, but I have no idea why. Maybe they like all the commercials. It sure isn’t because they’re hearing anything new or fresh.

See also musicradio77.com for a lot of commentary about this.

I listen to KTLK via I Heart Radio every day. It’s going to suck not having them to listen to in the mornings. Randi was taken off XM/Sirius, and I’m having trouble finding a station that carries both shows(Stephanie and Randi) in their entirety. Randi said today she’s looking at starting her own station via I Heart Radio. Progressive/Liberal radio would stand a chance IF it was promoted and invested in beyond just enough to keep it off life support. Liberals suck at supporting each other in media, why I don’t know, you’d think we’d want to win, at least sometimes.

I’m no media expert. I have wondered for a long time why am talk radio is just not a medium that progressives like in great numbers. I remember when it was not so, when Michael Jackson (not the singer) owned talk radio in this city.

Dec 5th I commented Rush was taking a big hit with this. First step toward the exit only door.

You know why progressives don’t like am talk radio? Because progressives don’t like assholes and assholes are always trying to dump their shit on you first thing. Ever have a boss, client or coworker that just ambushes you right away when you walk into work, bombarding you with all the upcoming nonsense of the day before you’ve even put your things away? It’s always stuff that they think is important but really goddamned isn’t and can always wait until everybody has physically and mentally adjusted to the suck of being wherever they are. It’s the same shit that will be reiterated later at the mid morning meeting and almost never matters then either. It’s also almost always the same shit they’ve copied you on three or four emails over the past two weeks and fuck if any of it every really matters. It’s just shit, they know it’s shit and you know it’s shit but they can’t enjoy the sensation of themselves shitting all over you unless you’re there to be shit on. So it keeps happening, if you put up with it. I’ve learned not to.

The kinds of people who do and put up with that kind of fuckfaced assholery like listening to talk radio in the morning. They’re up, immediate eager and instantly ready to either dump their own or be filled with somebody else’s bullshit before they’ve even fully woken up and actually started thinking. My guess is that progressives are less likely to be morning people and less likely to enjoy, or at least ignore being shit on. If you come at me with a stream of words first thing as I walk in the door I’m going to stop you and tell you firmly not to ambush me like that, that early morning are motherfucking sacred and that it’s rude and inconsiderate to just dump on people immediately upon seeing them for the first time in a day. Some people get really offended when I do this, fuck em. But most people take a step back and realize what I’m saying is objectively reasonable and makes for a much better work environment.

I think you’re right Frank. Honestly, when I’m on my way to work; I want to be either be listening to music or intellectual conversation, you don’t get that with political talk radio. You can count me in as a liberal who’s glad that liberal talk radio never took off the way conservative talk radio did.
