A few comments about talk radio

I use Google analytics to see how people are accessing Bruce's Journal.  Someone found the journal by searching under the keywords Bruce Flushing WFAN.  There is a regular phone caller to that station who identifies himself as Bruce from Flushing.  This is not me.  The last time I phoned a sports talk radio show was in the early 1980s when I called Art Rusk Jr. on WABC.

I listen to WFAN a few times a week for only about 20 minutes at a time since much of the talk is repititious.  How much can you talk about the Jets against Steelers?  For two weeks the hosts will just talk about the Superbowl.  I don't call because I don't want to be kept on hold for a long time.  I wonder if some of the regular callers don't have to wait to talk to the host.

Since I am not a political person I am just not interested in political talk radio.  If the host disagrees, he will either cut the caller off or make a fool out of him.  Most of these hosts are arrogant and pompous.

Back to music radio. Right now I am listening to the Saturday Morning Function with Bob Porter on WBGO.
