I miss him more every day. I listened for over 30 years and now nothing.
I listened to hear his take on what was happening in politics, while the tributes are nice I am tired of them and want commentary and current events, meaningful comments.
I support Trump coming on air once or twice a week to talk to “We the People”
same here. I know that this is a path to healing.
I agree we need to hear a strong voice on radio. Rush saved radio for a reason.
Still listening. Miss him.
Rush is gone. It feels like a personal loss to me. But he is gone. It leaves a void that will never be filled. But we need to take what he taught us and carry it forward each in our own way and not look for someone to be a Rush clone.
For me this means being positive and seeing the humor in situations on my own without depending on his daily dose of optimism. I hope, like you, one or two people will emerge to publicly carry the flag for us.
I miss him.
A bump from the west coast. I used to advertise my business on Rush’s show on KINS radio...
Miss this giant of a man.
Sorry but I really never listened to the fill ins. They are loosing me. I really wish Rush knowing how deadly his cancer was, would have groomed an air apparent. I would really like to hear James (Mr. Snerdly) Golden fill in or even take over. He knew Rush the longest. Such a waste of Rush’s legacy.
I know how you feel. I only listened for 19 years, the first four casually but the remaining 15 as a dittohead and 24/7 subscriber. The abruptness of it is just surreal. A small part of my brain keeps telling itself, 'Ok Rush, enough with the golfing. Time to return to the air. A lot of things are happening that deserve your commentary'. To which another part of my brain, the logical part, replies, 'but Rush is 6 ft below the earth at "room temperature" (to borrow a phrase from him) in his new Bellefontaine home'. And the reality of it hits all over again 😞
I have gone through a number of scenarios on how this could have been avoided. Yes Rush loved to enjoy life, some aspects of which put him in a higher risk category. But even with that since he belonged to a certain age bracket, all he needed to do was go for annual cancer screenings. That's it. It's why cancer screenings exist - to catch cancer in its earliest stages. And they are especially useful for lung cancers which are easier to spot in their early stages. A low powered CT scan would have detected suspicious lesions. Knowing that he was a long term smoker doc would have recommended a biopsy. Biopsy would have shown precancerous cells, or cancer in its very early stages (stage I). Lesions would have been surgically removed with the doc's strong advice to quit smoking at that point. And that would have been the end of it. After that he would have continued to follow up with the doc once every 6 months to a year. What happened did not have to be. So many what-if's. But Rush had an aversion of going to the doctor. He hated it.
My Johny Cash impersonation
Big RUSH... Big Bad RUSH...
I once met a man that had no nose.
He had been a pipe smoker as I understand it.
His nose had been eaten away by cancer, and what it didn’t
eat was removed in an effort to extend this guy’s life.
The oral cavity, nose, throat, lungs... they are all affected by
tobacco products. Other important parts are as well.
People are free to do as they please, but so is nature.
If you’re willing to donate 5, 10, 20, or 30 years of your
life to a tobacco product, that’s your choice.
I’d rather you live longer, enjoy your great grand children.
Trying to listen to the Rush program is too much heartache for me.
I can’t do it.
I am realizing how much an impact Rush had on me. Part of me feels selfish, the other part is all heartache.
He groomed them already and they have the #2 and #3 most listened to radio shows today. Mark Levin was saying the other day he was in Rush’s studio and Rush was telling him you’re studying me aren’t you, FLee? One day Rush threw Mark Levin behind the microphone and made him do it and the rest is history. Nobody is going to replace Rush. But the Legacy lives on in Mark Levin and Hannity.
We all miss him, too.
Ditto, old FRiend.
I’ve been smoking Marlboros since 17, now 54 yrs, and only have a mild case of COPD, so it affects everyone differently.
