rules for radios

Posted in conservatives, radio, talk radio with tags on April 21, 2011 by Word-Drum

The second tier of Talk Radio: Mark Levin; Laura Ingraham; Michael Medved; Dennis Prager; Hugh Hewitt; Hannity; Michael Savage; all have many good qualities, but most of them too often break the Rules for Radios.

We are asked to sit through endless commercial spots. In my small western town the spots are all made by the local business owners. They never hire annoucers, producers or composers. They start every ad by saying “HI!.” Their voices grate on this transplant from the East.

I’d rather be waterboarded than listen to that, or most of the ads on TV and radio (including that gay android that comes on NPR every few minutes).

When the actual content portion begins, we don’t want more advertising and self-promotion from the host. Being ordered to their website, or repeated hawking of their latest book, breaks the Rules For Radios, and causes disengagement by the beleaguered listener.

The connection with the listener is broken when we are treated as mere consumers shopping for products and services.

                     

The top tier of Talk Radio is it’s inventor, Rush Limbaugh. He remains in a league all his own. Variety might be the spice of life, but Rush gets to the red meat when dissecting the Left. The spices aren’t that important.

His montages alone (where the libs all use the same words and phrases on the same day) shine the light (on loan from God) on the commies mendacious conspiracy.

The Big Guy has more content and less ads than the others. His voice is large and robust, and only pauses for effect. Others stammer (Ingraham, Prager), or sound like they are going to die (Levin).

A professional broadcaster is prefered but the rule can be suspended if the host is accomplished and offers a special brand of enlightenment, and can also make you laugh like The Great One.

One host who tramples on the Rules For Radios is Michael Savage. It’s impossible to listen for more than a minute or two without him breaking the rules. Even though I’m a Jewish Right-Winger from New York, I can’t understand how anyone but his mother could enjoy listening to Savage.

Rule # 1: Talk Radio should be live. His show is always a day late or more. Much can happen in 24 hours. When he shows up, Savage mostly hawks his books and talks about how he so great.

Rush never belittles other hosts, the mark of a gentleman. Here the name change to Savage fits for Mr. Weiner. He goes from moments of brilliance, to boring boasting. It’s a rollercoaster ride to Crazy Town.

A producer’s hand could make the shows better, but they have to
contend with the dual demands of the sponsors and the host’s large egos (a neccesary quality that must be held in check, or dealt with humorously like El Rushbo).

Medved is a solid broadcaster and the show is well done. Here it is more personal. I appreciate his dose of reality and moderation, but I identify with the Sarah Palin wing of the Republican Party. It’s more my heart than my head, but none the less, she inspires me and Moderates don’t.

The Republican Party’s great asset, Hugh Hewitt, also does a great job, but there are too many ads. Even though hosts and their staffs have mouths to feed and tuition to pay, rules are rules (for radios).

               RULES FOR RADIOS  BUY IT NOW!

“This seminal work will pave the way for the next stage of conservative talk radio.” The Quiet Listeners Union

Some third tier hosts just repeat the same thing over and over (Bill Cunningham) and just have authors on to sell books. Or they are motor-mouths like Jerry Doyle, or boring old men like Neil Bortz.

The solution for the lower tiers is to buy the new book Rules For Radios. Go to my website and befriend me on FaceBook, visit me at MyButt and FakeBook… follow my tweets… the book says it all and it’s halarious, RULES FOR RADIOS…

(Enough already! Right?)

input

I’m like Johnny 5 when it comes to Talk-Radio. Give me input.

I could read it on line but musicians are more sound oriented than are robots.

Rush takes me through the week(with a sprinkling of Levin, Medved, Ingraham, Humphries and others).

Sundays (late morning) used to go to Gun Talk, but now it’s back to New York WABC to listen to Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.

You can listen to the podcast here

Aaron speaks very clearly and never stammers like other hosts(who are not Rush). He often scoops the rest of the media as a journalist. His bumper music is terrible(House), but he gives lots of good input.

Aaron Klein is followed by another promising new show on WABC Radio: Jason Mattera, Brooklyn’s answer to B. Hussein Olinsky. Check it.

talk radio feelings

Lately I’ve been in a Savage Nation mood. I still think Rush is first and second in Talk-Radio. But Savage is talking about Kagan in his inimitable way. The rules are Jews can talk about Jews, and Blacks can talk about Blacks, etc.

I have scorched the Google and Alta Vista trying to find the name of an activist for the International A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition(commies who love Islamists). I remember one with the name Kagan who was active in the New York area. I found nothing. If anyone knows about this please leave a comment. That I did not find it on Google means nothing. The scrubbers are always out. Bless the little Stalinists.

It could have been Elana herself. This court could one day rule on our very existence as a free republic. She is a disaster. “Standing on principle” she kicks the Military off campus. But that was her policy from her days in the Clinton Administration!

And what’s wrong with Don’t ask, don’t tell? I like the sound of that. It’s none of my business and who cares anyway!

The main thing is that the Military, for the most part, doesn’t want to change it.

I can’t repeat enough that liberals are nuts. I think it’s all based on hatred. They hate everything but themselves. That too, they have ass backwards.

                  Wedding Bells for El Rushbo

I thought Rush said action should be taken if he ever marries again.

We can’t do everything he asks. We just wish Kathryn and him well. He told us listeners he was buying a new dog. She looks pretty good to me.

——————————————————————————

Barry has got to give it up to Bobby Jindal and people like the former President of Shell Oil, John Hofmeister. Jindal, a most effective Governor, is not being supported by the regime for crass political reasons. This is a crime against nature. It exposes the wretchedness of the Chicago Way. It might work in Chicago Land…

Hofmeister is also very impressive, like Governor Jindal (unlike Obongo). He has many solutions to soaking up the oil. I’ve heard many callers to Talk-Radio with their own ideas which come from experience in the Oil Industry. They all know more than the President of Party Central at the White House.

What do you think is Barry’s drug of choice?

It’s definitely in the cocaine family.

It’s hard to listen to the hissing liar. But when I do, I can’t help think he’s high.

It’s a lifestyle choice. But isn’t he working for us?

Drug Test!

rush and the art of radio

Posted in talk radio with tags on February 6, 2010 by Word-Drum

Radio Talkers all want his space
Rush Limbaugh is first, and second place

No one is second to the EIB
the Art of Radio from a lowly disk-jockey
with an intellectual show totally PC Free

Others sound ill or not like radio pros
it’s an intimate medium that will expose

Booming voice ever modulating
right in so many ways, but never grating
Ending segments with a wry zinger
like the cadence of great master opera singer

Shankland”s impressions solidify his space
in Talk Radio, Rush is first and second place

the reckoning

So this is how it ends. A Democrat majority pushes through rules to make “the Universe of Lies” the new “Universe of Reality.” (a la Rush Limbaugh)

The power-brokers and the rich liberals don’t think it will matter to them. They will have their own health care plans, and will buy enough carbon credits to maintain their life-styles.

I see it going another way. People will want to get even with those who brought on the downfall of the United States of America. Liberals might be hunted down and forced finally to pay for what they have wrought.

It might be the only way to have fun in the future after having lost ones job, home, and all savings. “Green Jobs” might lead to bloody elitist snobs. The wealth and fame brought by appearing on television might lead to being easily identified by a mob in tattered green uniforms.

The Republicans are going down and with them goes the Republic.

I call once again for separation from the liberals. I don’t want to argue or even live with them. They should have their own country.

Call it Pelosiville or Omerica, just not America. Besides, that name has so many bad connotations. They are beyond America. They will float above us, or below…as long as they aren’t around, and over us, they have no power.

why rush rules

Have you noticed how the egotism of the TV or radio host grows with their ratings?

But Rush Limbaugh started with a healthy large ego and has remained consistent. Giving the listener EIB and balancing his bravado.

On TV, O’Reilly the Moderate, lost me a long time ago.(Three Cheers for Laura Ingrahm!) But now even Glenn Beck is growing tedious. The more their shows become about them, the worse they get.

On radio, Michael Savage is the worst. I used to hear some moments of brilliance on his show. He was very good with callers.

Broadcasting is like life: All things in moderation. The essential ego needed to do a talk show must remain in check. But Savage is like a crazy person and makes me nervous.

When we are plagued by commercial breaks every few minutes, to be selling your book all the time during the show, is bad form. So is trash talking your competitors. Rush never does that and has shorter commericial breaks than the rest.

Having been a DJ has served El Rushbo well (so has Paul Shanklin whose Obama imitation is priceless) and is no reason to mock the King of Talk Radio.
