When I woke up I heard Leo Laporte on with Bill Handel doing his regular Friday hit. Really surprising how many hosts came into work today. I thought after the 4th it would be all fill in hosts. Rush didn't come in which is not surprising, but had a very cool host from Wisconsin, Mark Belling. He sits in often and is very sharp. Rush reminds me of how Carson slowly started taking days off and then retired. I suspect Rush will do the same. I would guess in probably 5 years he will be gone. If he stays till 2018 that will be 30 years on the air.
Larry Elder is on the air today. He replayed an interview with Erwin Chemerinsky who is normally only on Hugh Hewitts show. Very smart law professor and Dean at UCI, a big lefty. He had a bet for a meal if Obama Care would pass the court. Larry probably waiting for a call.
Hugh Hewitt is on as well, the hardest working host on the air. John and Ken are on the air but I can tell by the audio quality that John is at his house in Lake Arrowhead.
From Talkers Magazine. “Coast to Coast AM” Host George Noory Launches Anti-Obesity Campaign. Premiere Networks personality George Noory is announcing the beginning of his campaign to encourage his listeners to lose 15 million pounds. This would be a good reason to never listen to George Noory again. I so long for the days of Art Bell. George Noory is such a sorry substitute for Art. The show is just so mediocre, and it's been like ten years now right? I don't want to hear about your Anti-Obesity Campaign George, that's not what the show is about. I only listen when he has the old guests on like Richard C. Hogland and science based stuff on.
The road to digital content rolls on. I think the radio business is hating life.
