I wanted to post this on the Talkradio forum. I wasn’t successful. Any help?
I am not sure who the ping master is.
I listened to him last night on some station out of Utah I think. I didn’t know he was back on the radio. I wish they would put him back on the local talk radio station here in northeastern Arizona. He cracks me up.
What will happen to John Bachelor?
It will be interesting to see if Levin will make snide remarks about him on the same station. I like both of them, but they apparently don’t like each other.
Get off the phone you big jerk’ - this should be good - I guess he’ll be on after Levin
Is that 9-11 AM or PM?
Chris Plante currently on WMAL 9-12 AM but has had a stand in this week who was very evasive(?) about when he would be back.
Cut back to two hours a night (which is plenty)?
Two hrs is probably enough. He gets into some obscure topics sometimes, though. Often interesting and I don’t mind taking a break from politics occasionally.
p.m. -— looks like Savage is replacing Jon Bachelor. Gave me a start when I thought it was Plante. Not that I don’t regret Bachelor’s loss. He has excellent guests and presents an unique and informative view of the news and the world. A great loss if he gets forced off the air.
Boy am I glad it is not Chris Plante!
I share your concern.
While I like listening to Savage, I do get a bit tired of
his hyper self-promotion, particularly with his book promotions, and continuous rehashing of his past.
There have been a few times lately when I have just clicked him off.
Am I being overcritical?
Me too!!! Eventually they will go after Plante. I keep holding my breath and praying for him.
Nevertheless, Bachelor is unique...with very insightful analysis and guests. Hope he can stay on the air. Podcast:
For example, excellent program on 11/26/12 (skip the fourth hour; it is a repeat of the 1st). I was particularly impressed with his discussion on China-—the Azores (an Atlantic base), disputed islands, and China’s new aircraft carrier. Where is one to pick up that kind of analysis in 7 minutes.
I did get this ping, so at least we’re not crazy. :-)
Austin __? sitting in for Chris this week.
On Monday he said he would be back sometime during week, Tuesday said couple of days and today said he would be finishing week....
That is usually the way these stations part company - WMAL ‘fired’ Plante once before and replaced him with Scarborough.
That should have gotten an exec or two canned....
