    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...

    Don Rickles nearly hijacked the American Film Institute’s tribute to Shirley MacLaine on Thursday night at Sony Pictures Studios, unleashing a trademark barrage of insults that took aim at President Obama, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson and the honoree herself. “I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks,” Rickles said, and then proceeded to do just that: “President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke.” The black-tie crowd, gathered to celebrate MacLaine, the 40th recipient of the AFI’s Life Achievement Award, alternately gasped at the 86-year-old comic’s put-downs and then found...

    SW: Do you get any read on the tea party? Do you see that as part of the tension of working things out or the fear that people have? SM: Yeah, I think that's what's happening in the tea party. I'm certainly not a tea partyist. I think most of them are just acting out their frustrations. But their frustrations are deep and real. I mean the feds should have taken over this problem with drug trafficking and illegal immigrants a long time ago. So what you see as the reaction to their not tending to business in Washington [D.C.]...

    Shirley MacLaine cheers Kucinich's UFO-moment Andrew Malcolm & Mark Silva Actress Shirley MacLaine is delighted that her "her close friend" Dennis Kucinich has acknowledged his sighting of a UFO and hopes it will prompt the government to come clean. "I thought that was terrific," MacLaine said in an interview on NBC's Today Show this week. "That a presidential candidate admitted it. It's time. Many countries have released their files -- Argentina has, Brazil, France. Let's do it." It was MacLaine's own memoir -- she is godmother to one of Kucinich's children -- that prompted the Ohio congressman and candidate for...

    Kucinich's Secret Weapon For Kucinich, Honeymoon Phase Begins Before Taking the White House By JENNIFER DUCK and SUNLEN MILLER May 25, 2007 — There is no doubt about it, 2008 presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, stands out. Kucinich is the only candidate who wants to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney over the Iraq War; as he did in the 2004 election, he's proposing a Department of Peace, and has introduced a House bill calling for a universal, single-payer, not-for-profit health care system. And if that weren't enough, the self-proclaimed peace candidate has a secret weapon. Kucinich is the only...
