“Liberty is too precious to be buried in books. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say, ‘I’m free.'” - James Stewart from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

[COMMENT]It's a game changer and [Ted Cruz] is the star of Talk Radio this week. I didn't know much about him before this week. He seems to have made a masterful move and man are people pissed. I think it took real balls to do what he did and he put the focus on just how bad Obamacare is. I loved it and I'm a big fan now. Now he's getting slammed, I'm sure he can take it. Hugh Hewitt did a great job covering this. Hugh talked about Cruz and his background, some really interesting stuff. Cruz was the youngest solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to May 2008. Cruz argued before the Supreme Court nine times. Between 1999 and 2003, Cruz served as the director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, and Associate Deputy Attorney General at the United States Department of Justice, and as Domestic Policy Advisor to U.S. President George W. Bush on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign. In addition, Cruz was an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, where he taught U.S. Supreme Court litigation, from 2004 to 2009. He was also a clerk for Chief Justice William Rehnquist, which Hewitt says is a very big deal. Big Lib Prof. Alan Dershowitz told the National Review “Cruz is off-the-charts brilliant”

Is that enough qualifications to be President? mmmmm could be.....

At one point, [Ted Cruz] said “God bless Talk Radio.” That night he read from [Rush Limbaugh’s] dad’s famous speech on the Founding — famous because Rush reads it every Thanksgiving on air.

Majority of Americans now streaming listeners.

This week [Doug McIntyre] on McIntyre in the Morning had guest hosts on with him. It was nice to hear some different kind of radio for a change. He had [Dennis Zine], [Penny Peyser] his wife, and [Rob Marinko], [Gina Grad], [Mr. KABC (Mark Germain)]. On Tuesday an untethered Dennis Zine was sitting in as guest host, and I think Dennis might actually be in-training for a show on KABC. He's knows a lot about LA politics and is a former police officer and he's really good on mic. I would listen. And how stupid are these programming people?, why is Rob Marinko not working at KABC? It's just unbelievable. Good shows all week, the only criticism I have is that the morning show is soo tightly formatted that it's hard to let a guest host get more than a couple sentences out. It's a little unnerving how fast the show moves to get all the traffic reports in and news. I say loosen it up a bit. And when you have a guest host on, don't do the same show. Less McIntyre, more guest. Don't just read news stories and have a guest on the phone, have a conversation with your guest host! Informal and more personal is always better. A morning show does not have to sound like the proverbial morning show. Innovate a little KABC! More content is always my mantra!

Friday night update. I did listen to the show this morning with Ken Levine and it was great. especially the 8 O'clock hour. They talked baseball and play by play, entertaining conversation.

[QUOTE][Art Bell] said this week "[Senator Ted Cruz] is going to talk till he can't stand up, CNN is showing him on camera and are hoping that he collapses any minute.......and then he'll need Obamacare"

[PODCASTS]This week on [Marc Maron's] WTF Podcast Marc interviews [Monte Hall!] You might need to be my age to even know who that is. Monte Hall had a game show for years that was huge. It was called "Let's Make a Deal". A must hear great interview with lots of stories about his life. Wonderful to hear his very distinct voice again. Monte is 92 now.

Check out 5 minutes of the old show. 

This Week with [Larry Miller]. Always a great show.
