Just because your voice reaches halfway around the world doesn't mean you are wiser than when it reached only to the end of the bar - Edward R. Murrow

[COMMENT]Most of what I hear on the radio is one person or another trying to make something sound different than it really is to further an agenda. I hear John McCain saying "illegals aren't going home so why don't we give them a path to citizenship". It's not about that, nobody in this government wants to secure the border and certified that it is. People steer the argument to a completely different topic. Out of all the things that have not gotten done from our government not securing the border is one that has just gone on and on. People are soo tired of nobody doing anything we've just thrown up our hands. I'm frankly stunned that we have not had some terrorist come over and blown something up. For this government to go against the will of the American people and just ignore us is beyond frustrating. Now we have John Boehner talking about it again. I don't think any of them want to do anything about this at all...ever.

This November and in 2016 we really need to start to take back this country, but I'm not at all confident. We have a bunch of idiots and power hungry bozo's running this place. Like Clint Eastwood said "We own this place".  

And thank god for talk radio, it's like a college course everyday. We have great hosts that keep track of important issues and research news and tell us the important stuff that we need to know. It goes back to the American people must be informed voters for this country to work and talk radio definitely helps with that.  

Let's use this valuable media to share and tell others, inform others and change this country for the better. 

Just think if we didn't have these tools. 

[RADIO]Really great to hear Rush back on the air this week. He sounded a little groggy, but he just jumps right back into the fray and does the show. Rush spent time explaining his medical procedure and the fact that he does not hear like most people think. It was an eye opener and we all should be thankful for our hearing.  

Did you know that Larry King has a show online called PoliticKing? Larry Elder was on the most recent show. It's on but it won't load and it's not on youtube soo what can I do?

This sounds great.

“Randi Rhodes is the Most Talented Person in Radio Today. Period.” – Stephanie Miller 

I have never been a big fan of Miller, but now she has really lost her mind. Rhodes' show was literally unlistenable, and I tried. Maybe we will hear a new story of her face down after a bender. 
What?..... this microphone? No that one! She will not be me.

This week on Hannity he had the great David Horowitz on to talk about Anti-semitism on college campus's now being called Israeli Apartheid. This article is pretty shocking and I think it's one of the most important stories of the week.
Barbara Kay: Keeping our campuses Israel-friendly

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show: Mark talks about the Supreme Court ruling upholding its ban on affirmative action and explains the history on it. Mark says that affirmative action is racial discrimination, plain and simple. He talks about Justice Harlan's reasoning from Plessy vs. Ferguson, and the notion that we are supposed to be a colorblind society. We are to treat our citizens as human beings, not based on race or skin color. Also, the realization that the Republican establishment isn't giving up on their attacks on conservatives such as Ted Cruz, who refuses to give in and play their game. Mark talks about Ronald Reagan's history and how he overwhelmingly won because of conservative principles and ideals. Mark read from Plessy vs. Ferguson and it's amazing.

Larry Van Nuys posted this on his facebook page. My mother loved this station when I was growning up in the Valley! This is one great ad.

I have never seen this photo! Wow!

Sitting in for Rush for the first time was a host named Eric Erickson. Erickson is a politically conservative American blogger and editor-in-chief of the blog site From 2010-13, he was a political contributor for CNN. And he's also a lawyer. He had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed the show. He does a show out of Atlanta.

Is there anyone that you can think of that is more condescending and fake than George Noory? I don't know maybe you love the guy. I heard him say "I think the Malaysian airliner might have just went into a Bermuda triangle time warp...and it's just gone" This quote like many stupid things he says are on a dedicated facebook page called "Stupid stuff Goerge Noory says.
A woman calls in and she's from Pahrump, NV. I wonder if she has ever heard of Art Bell? I must be getting really old because that is just so stupid to me that she or Noory never said anything about it.

[ON THIS DAY]1938 - "Your Family and Mine," a radio serial, was first broadcast. The program was initially broadcast daily at 6:15pm, sponsored by Sealtest (Sealtest Dairy was a division of National Dairy Products Corporation (predecessor to Kraft Foods, Inc.) of Delaware. It produced milk, cream, ice cream, etc). The series was created by Lillian Laugerty, following her success with the daytime drama series Big Sister, which had a long run from 1936 to 1952.

[SPECIAL LOS ANGELES LISTENER PROFILE]Gaylord Carter. Back in the 90's a co-worker of mine introduced me to a special person in LA history, his name is Gaylord Carter. Tomorrow, April 26th at 8pm at LA's historic Million Dollar Theater there will be a special screening of Touch of Evil, a 1958 American crime thriller film, written, directed by, and co-starring Orson Welles. This theater (built in 1918) is where the 21 year old Carter became theater organist in 1926. I had the privilege to meet and spend time with him at his home and saw him play the organ at San Bernardino's California Theater. He's truly a LA icon. He lived to be 95 and did nothing but love being an organist all his life. Just a sweet and gregarious and generous guy. It will be a special thing to be inside that theater soo many years later. 

At KNX Studio, Columbia Square, Hollywood

Broadcast 30 August, 1942:
