    The Right Frequency Blog ^ | February 10, 2013 | Fred Lucas
    Former New York Mayor Ed Koch, who died earlier this month, was a legendary political figure. Barry Farber was a legendary talk radio host in the Big Apple, whose voice dominated the powerful WOR throughout the 1960s and 1970s. The two larger-than-life figures would face off in 1977, when Koch was seeking his first term as mayor. Farber was interviewed in The Right Frequency: The Story of the Talk Radio Giants Who Shook Up the Political and Media Establishment by Fred V. Lucas (History Publishing Co.). Below is an excerpt: *** Covering a quarter of WOR’s airtime was enough exposure...
  • "Breitbart's death just a coincidence?"

    "First, let’s nail down the difference between a conspiracy theorist and a broad-minded person. A conspiracy theorist says, “Of course, Andrew Breitbart was assassinated. Look how many people benefit from his absence. He told CPAC he had videos that could doom Obama’s re-election chances. He told Sinclair News three weeks before he died, ‘Wait till March 1st!’ He died on March 1st. You’re a blind, cowardly idiot if you can’t see he was murdered.”
  • Joy Tiz Talks to Barry Farber Today, 5pm PDT, CRN, New York, NY

    As smooth and civilized as Jack Daniels whiskey, and with just as much kick, Barry Farber is one of America's legendary talk show hosts. Raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, he drank in with his mother's milk the art of storytelling and of painting memorable images with a gentle Southern accent. But before leaving college this knight errant had been editor of a daily newspaper, a wrestler, a steel worker, a representative of American college students in Yugoslavia and Brazil, an interpreter for units of the Chinese Nationalist Navy, and a Phi Beta Kappa student.

    EC interviews NYC radio legend Barry Farber, whose recent article asking "Where's the birth certificate?" (posted below) is creating quite a stir. You may know Barry from his stints subbing for Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity, and his show was rated one of the top ten all-time by Talkers Magazine recently. Is this a sign that the conservative contingent of the mainstream media may be waking up and starting to ask the question millions think but only a few dare to ask?

    Palin Is Unstoppable It's not just McCain's "bold choice." It's not just a hot hormone shot square into the gutwork of the Republican Party. The selection of Sarah Palin is much, much more. Director Darryl F. Zanuck's 1962 film, "The Longest Day," about the Normandy invasion, ....

    Call it by its right name. It's not the "immigration bill" or the "attempted immigration bill" or the "failed immigration bill" or the "immigration bill in need of amendment." The American government tried to pull a coup against its people. It failed. It did, however, succeed in giving me a feeling I'd completely forgotten. I was 5 years old. My mother gave her younger sister Margie enough money to take me, Margie, and her friend Harvey to a special kids' show which was five cartoons end to end; no feature film which 5-year-olds find boring. On the way to the...

    Don't misunderstand. I'm not claiming to be one of the bravest Americans. I'm merely claiming to be among the most fearless. The brave acknowledge danger and face it. The fearless simply don't believe there's that much danger. They sell various signs at roadside fruit stands in Florida suitable for framing in lower-middle-class kitchens and game rooms. One of those more popular signs says "If you can keep your head while others are losing theirs, maybe you don't understand the problem!" There is that possibility, but I think I understand something beyond the problem of terrorism aimed at America – anthrax, ...

    The mounting toll of American troops in Iraq is gradually turning America into a France, a Germany, a Spain, a Russia. Can we who support a free Iraq, a free everywhere else, and a victory over terrorism and Islamo-fascism do anything more than sit here and hope any given day's or week's casualty figures don't trip the wire and send the throaty mobs into the streets demanding President Bush withdraw, resign or voluntarily agree to report on his own recognizance to The Hague Court to stand trial for war crimes?

    It took People Power on the streets of Lebanon to tip it. Within hours after the Lebanese demonstrators toppled their pro-Syrian puppet government, even the most sober Syrians began to sing "Show Me the Way to Go Home." And three anti-Bush Americans with whom I'd quarreled told me that President George W. Bush may actually have changed the world for the better. One went so far as to suggest the president might wind up with a Nobel Peace Prize! And why not? The evidence that freedom was chain-sparking across the Middle East and beyond was undeniable. Recalling the disappointments following...

    A merry Jewish Christmas Posted: December 24, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern© 2004 In the "War on Christmas" this year, one clear truth has emerged: The debate over religious symbols does not stem from one clear group - observant Jews. In all the debates about how a "Merry Christmas" does not seem to include non-Christians, it is clear that those leveling that charge are not those who celebrate Hanukkah. This fact is being largely ignored by the same press which is idolizing the secularists who are making all the noise. Some evidence? A new CNN-Gallup poll out on Thursday found that 88...

    Unusual question: Which innocent victims of hostile attack were the most surprised to be greeted with hostility of any kind? Obviously, we can’t nominate policemen in a high-crime neighborhood or soldiers on a battlefield. How about the victims of 9/11? That’s about as close as you can get. I can think of only one other incident whose victims might edge 9/11’s victims out, because the 9/11 victims were all random innocents. The ones I’m about to suggest were led to believe they were the absolute safest people in the entire land. In Cairo my Egyptian guide took me to the...

    Rumsfeld's Wrong Answer Barry Farber Monday, Dec. 13, 2004 The gutsy Army specialist who opened verbal fire on Defense Secretary Rumsfeld and drew that breathtakingly diseased answer poses a test to the masculinity of every conservative commentator. (At least of every male conservative commentator.) The temptation for us red-leaners is to think: “Thank God the election is over. Kerry can’t exploit that issue. It’s a bummer for our side, all right – an American fighting man complaining about having to poke through landfill looking for “hillbilly” armor to jerry-rig onto unarmed Humvees – but we’re saved by the bell; or...

    America was a Christian country. And nobody got rattled when you said that. There was no backtalk. America was stomp-down, flat-out, plainly and simply a Christian country. Not OFFICIALLY, mind you; just actually. And as a Jew growing up happy, unmolested, and well-protected in this Christian America I seized upon one figment of Christianity that really impressed me. It was the image of Jesus nailed to the cross lifting his eyes upward and saying, “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do!” I envied that, like a baseball club owner might envy another team’s possession of a star...

    Everybody loves the whistle-blower, except maybe the one he's blowing the whistle at. I think it’s time we diverted a little love over to the kibbitzer. The kibbitzer, a term borrowed from the Yiddish language, may not be able to play the game or do the job or solve the problem; but, brother, can he ever nudge his way in close and COMMENT! The role of the kibbitzer is to throw so many half-informed suggestions into the air that wiser heads may eventually hear something useful. The kibbitzer never rolls heavy boulders of advice down upon those who actually have...

    Peace Movements Don’t Prevent Wars Barry FarberTuesday, Feb. 18, 2003 Are you behind the president, in favor of using force to disarm Saddam Hussein, willing to share the risks of combat nationally and personally – and thoroughly rattled by the huge turnouts around the world for the anti-war rallies of Saturday, Feb. 15? Have some therapy. Don't try to dismiss the demonstrators as "the usual suspects." The motleyness of many of them may have indeed inspired an agenda-free 8-year-old in New York to exclaim to his mother, "Mom, this place is filled with freaks!" But drop that line. There were...

    Mark Twain said a lot of things wittier and funnier. But he never said anything more valuable than this: A man who can read - but does not, has no advantage over a man who cannot read. He'd probably also agree that a nation free to tell itself the truth -but does not, has no advantage over a dictatorship. Media coverage of Iraq these days makes me fear we have become that nation. Some comparisons, please. As North Korean troops and tanks plunged headlong into South Korea in June, 1950 the world communist press from East Berlin to Pyongyang reported...

    Pardon the second vanity of the day, but I've been listening to the host filling in for Savage, Barry Farber, and I've been absolutely glued to the radio. What a brain! What a voice! What a gentleman! Michael could certainly take some lessons from Farber. I'm now a fan of his.........just ordered his book, in fact. I'm sure others already know about him, but I just discovered him today. Hope someone else heard him......he's spectacular.

    After a lifetime of ridiculing single-issue voters, I've become one. Don't bother me with prescription drugs, Bush's anti-conservative spending habits, the growth of government, and lousy Republican stewardship over the wetlands. We are at war! Dammit, don t you understand? We are at WAR? Just because House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doesn t feel it (her words, not mine!), that doesn't excuse the rest of us. This war, in spite of all that s gone wrong, is eminently winnable. I see, not just goodness, but glory if American policy succeeds. And, conversely, unending trouble if it doesn't. And I mean...
