I Tried Listening to Talk Radio, but Still Don't Like It

I was never a fan of talk radio, but since I am home more often now I thought I would try listening again.  At times I do listen to sports radio on WFAN, but usually, no more than 20 minutes as the callers often repeat themselves.  For the next 2 weeks, everyone will give their opinion about who is going to win the Superbowl.  Yesterday someone referred to one team as the Philadelphia Pigeons.  I sometimes listen to Michael Kay, Don LaGreca, and Peter Rosenberg on ESPN Radio at 98.7 FM.  Too often, they get off on tangents and discuss issues not related to sports.

Yesterday, I sampled Rush Limbaugh on WOR who spent much time talking about the different models of the iPhone and how Apple wants people to keep buying the latest model with all the bells and whistles.  I think that should be discussed on a business talk station like WBBR.  He then went on defending Donald Trump.  So what else is new.  I then turned to WABC and sampled Curtis Sliwa and Dominic Carter.  They were talking Amazon want to open up a new headquarter which could be situated in  New York City or Newark.  They felt that the operations would be almost completely automated and that few new jobs would be created.

I think I will stick to listening to music on the radio.
