WSPD--PLEASE GIVE US A PROFESSIONAL MORNING HOST

I gave up listening to the local morning and afternoon shows on WSPD when it became all Trump bashing--all of the time. WJR/760 out of Detroit became my mainstay morning station.

I happened to turn on WSPD around 7:30 this morning and what do you know--Fred LeFebvre was bashing Donald Trump. Boy--that sure doesn't get old!

I guess Fred figures that since Lucas County voted for Hillary (only one of seven counties in the state that did) he's safe in continuing to revolve his show around criticizing Trump.

WSPD NEEDS A MAKE-OVER

I love local radio. I've always resisted subscribing to services like SiriusXM because I like live local radio--regardless of if I'm home or away.

Lately, I just can't stand listening to the local morning and afternoon shows on WSPD. It reminds me of CKLW's Saturday afternoon garage sale program where people call in and say things like, "I've got a beautiful ceramic Dalmatian that I'll sell for $37."

Clear Channel Boots Racist Sexist Pig Rush Limbaugh in Pittsburgh!

Looks like the hate mongering negative naybob of talk radio is now in a death spiral. Rush Limbaugh is being dropped by Cumulus and many other stations across the country. The American people are waking to the fact that these shills do not represent them. Here are a few recent articles of interest.

Media Matters Reveals Rush Limbaugh’s Ratings Are in A Death Spiral!

Right-wing Pussies like DTOM, Fred, Galt, GZ, and MikeyA To #OccupyDC Starting Today

Yes it's true, tens of millions of Teabaggers are going to magically appear in DC today and take over the government by camping out and demonstrating. You know, like #Occupy but with old fat nutjob armed Teabaggers riding their Rascal scooters around and waving their misspelled, racist signs.

Quote from article:
"Glenn Beck worked the crowd like a preacher at a rally this month in Louisville, Ky., declaring that God had responded to conservatives’ prayers by sending a slate of tea party candidates to wrest control of the Republican Party from Mitch McConnell.

Tough Week at WSPD

The morning and afternoon local hosts at WSPD appeared to have gotten peeved this week over emails they received from people who took issue with their "All Libertarian/All of the Time" programming (i.e. Ron Paulites Fred LeFebvre and Brian Wilson, Charlie Earl, Free Talk Live, and frequent interviews with Lew Rockwell). Fred read an email from someone who was objecting to having "Ron Paul shoved down our throats" (or something to that effect). You could tell that Fred got pretty steamed about the email because he kept saying the emailer's first name with an agitated tone. Strangely, he chastised the writer for sending an email and said that this was radio and he should call--then why does he make a point of giving out the email address?

An Interesting Time for Talk Radio

It became apparent to me the other day that the 2012 election represents an interesting dilemma for talk radio. I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur of talk radio. While growing up in Toledo in the early 1970s, I would take my transistor radio to bed with me and listen to stations from as far away as Boston--stations that would come through clearly late at night. For the last 20 years, I have listened to Conservative talk radio for about 30 hours-per-week. While listening to Glenn Beck last week, I found myself... (read more)

Who Is Fred LeFebvre, anyway?

Just wondering who this guy is AND wondering who he thinks he is.

Rush Limbaugh Ratings Tumble

Rush Limbaugh Ratings Tumble
May 24, 2011
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/24/rush-limbaugh-ratings-tum_n_866...
Rush Limbaugh's ratings have fallen sharply in recent months, according to a new report by Arbitron.

Limbaugh still has the top-rated radio talk show in the country, but his audience has dropped by 33 percent since October. And he's not the only one--Sean Hannity's ratings have also slipped by 28 percent.

Again, if you look to the left you will see no shame (or dignity)...

Only this time it is a little closer to home.

In what can only be described as an absolute disgrace, Ohio police and firefighters began National Police Week on Monday by holding press conferences across the state (incl. Toledo) to rail on SB5 and push the repeal initiative. While that doesn't sound too bad, what makes it truly repugnant is that it was done under the guise of honoring fallen officers.

WSPD

Don't know who the afternoon guest host on WSPD is today, but he comes across as thoughtful, respectful and polite enough to let his guest and callers speak. Such a refreshing change from Brian "It's a revolution, dammit" Wilson, the swamp gas victim who believes listeners want him to interrupt callers and pontificate until the next commercial break. What a wonderful return to civility.

Anyone Going To The Kaptur Fundraiser Wednesday?

You all going to the Kaptur fundraiser on Wednesday? It's a little out of my budget constraints as you can see here http://politicalpartytime.org/party/23509/#invite I find it interesting that the Silverberg Associates throwing the party is run by Carl Silverberg a former investment banker. Correct me if I'm wrong, wouldn't that make him Wall Street instead of Main Street?
