I enjoy writing and I have a lot to say. Especially now in this very heated election season. What sparked me to start up again is that I have about 5 days off and have some time... and the surprising performance of some hosts this Thursday,
I turned on the radio early about 8am today. I heard John Phillips on 790 KABC sitting in for Doug McIntyre. He was going back and forth with LA radio icon Larry Van Nuys who does the news. Now Larry has been in LA and on the radio since 1959. And what a set of pipes this man has, oh my god. He's such a nice guy too having talked to him online a few times, very gracious. I told him I would love to hear him have his own show, like on the weekend. John and him went back and forth for quite a while today, really cool.
Then I hear Hugh Hewitt come on the air today in full attack mode. I love it when people like Hugh and Dennis Prager (who did a great 4th of July show) come on, in a holiday week and have a purpose. Hugh did 15 minutes on the current heathcare problems and the president and the election. I personally think that Hugh does the best most thoughtful radio show on the air here in LA. He is a law professor at Chapman College in the OC and I think he does the show in his office remotely. Every minute of his show is informative and smart, except he is obsessed with college sports but I'll let that slide.
