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.
Is it this guy?
Perhaps the radio station made the choice.
No, that is not him. Try this link.
I'm listening too. He's very good, not quite so curmudgeony as Michael Savage.
Uh.... Barry, you're giving yourself away there.
Can't listen. Stupid baseball on. But I have Savage's book, reading it now and am a fan. I disagree with Michael on the Clinton portrait unveil (I think W was gracious to the point of nausea, and that's fine), but that's ok. Michael is Michael. I think he could use a little refining, but I'll continue to listen when I can get him. He is right 99% of the time for me, and he does have great guests and great callers. I hope he supports W because Kerry nor Nader have anything to help this country.
Enjoy Barry Farber while you can. He has been around since Goldwater days(me too). He was a lone voice for conservatism in the New York radio market. Sort of the William F. Buckley of radio.
When I was a kid I used to listen to Barry Farber's late night radio show. Since school nights were involved I had my 5 tube Silvertone under the covers with me. If I remember correctly he inherited the slot from Long John Nebel on WOR in NY.
"Uh.... Barry, you're giving yourself away there."
Yes so did I. Loved his NC accent on WNBC.
Since we're in Seattle for the summer options on the radio aren't quite as diverse as Phoenix. Heard M.Savage a few times lately and he seems to have a class-warfare approach. Called Bush and Kerry both "princes" of the upper class or whatever, contrasting Reagan's roots to that. If he wants to do that one and say that's what we related to in R.W.R., then what about Clinton and his "humble roots"? The theory gets lost there I believe. People have qualities that transcend their upbringing. And G.W. truly seems "of the people" these days far more than his father ever did, or Kerry. Why can't Michael appreciate Pres. Bush more, was he always like this in his attitude toward him?
Barry Farber shows up from time to time filling in for people on New York Talk radio. I've always enjoyed listening to him. I knew he was once a regular in NYC, but I did not know he had been around since the Goldwater days!
Savage gets a might too much for me to handle lately ..especially since I get a 1/2 hour of O'Reilly's daily dissing just before. The Savage message may be 99% right, but the kvetching, crudity, histrionics, volcanic eruptions, screaming and egomaniacal wanderings make my drive home just too fractious anymore. By the time I get home, my nerves are jangled to the maxx.
Barry Farber gets the same message out in a polite, gentlemanly, calm yet very credible way .. it was truly a pleasure to hear him today. Yoohoo, radio people....bring Barry Farber back everyday.
I like what I'm hearing. Lets hope KRLA realizes that we prefer reasoned conservativism over the raving kind.
Yup, you remember correctly. I didn't realize the man was still alive.
How OLD is Barry Farber? I remember my Dad listening to him when I aws a little girl!
Dude,change turn the knob.
Do you remember the liberal radio guy in New York, ALEX BENNETT? I remember listening to him late at night. I didn't want my parents to know! I just thought he was funny. He used to close his show by saying NAMASTE! I wonder what happened to him? I know someone here will be able to tell me.
