A radio program critic speaks

I don’t know about others, but I for one feel joy in life returning, now that Mike Malloy is gone from the Air America Radio lineup. He used to be my favorite, but that was before Malloy was jumping from every shadow, thinking it was Karl Rove. It’s really kind of sad. Plus it got old for Malloy to go into a rage so quickly when a right wing freak would call the program, and for Malloy to blame the freak for this, his own problem. (One time it happened on a ‘kid’s call-ins only’ night, and knowing he had a kid on the other end Malloy did not go into a rage, and certainly did not go on the shooting spree he frequently bragged of being so close to going on.)

I don’t like this sometime substitute Jon Elliot, though; he mumbles into the microphone and has too much ‘I’m so great’ hype in his program. The substitute I prefer is Peter Werbe. If Malloy’s slogan was ‘Finish your day screaming’, with Werbe the slogan became ‘Finish your day calm and collected despite it all’. Actually I would like round the clock Sam Seder, punctuated on the half hour by Al Franken sketches and Randi Rhodes bouncing to Bette Midler, but Seder has a family now and so can’t do that sort of thing. Work around the clock, I mean, though he doesn’t bounce well, either.
