Anyone else notice that some of our conservative radio shows are disappearing? I just realized last night that one of our local radio stations, which previously was a straight conservative format - is now completely sports talk. So my noticing that "The War Room with Quinn and Rose" was gone was alas, not a temporary glitch but permanent. Yes, I am grieving the loss. Quinn and Rose are both very intelligent and professional radio personalities and it galls me to think someone in the C level decided they were replaceable.
Today I just learned that the FM station in town that carried "The Dennis Miller Show" also switched to sports talk. Bill O'Reilly has quit his radio show and making his website a news site. Rose answered my letter with the suggestion that I join their "members only" part of the site where I can listen to their podcasts for a fee.
I don't particularly care to pay a fee but I may. What saddens me is that I no longer will be hearing anything "live." It seems as the conservative shows disappear, all we'll be left with is a bunch of recordings. And how does that work for listeners who want to call in?
I'm just a mixed bag of irritation, disgust, sadness, and anger. As Carolina Cannonball of The Crescat would say...
Hiss. Spit. Growl.
