20. Seems his last actual show was on Tuesday the 25th



My search on YouTube found that Talk Radio Network played a best-of compilation for the Wednesday Savage Nation.

I have sometimes listened to Savage (who's from my area...yikes) to get the latest right wing perspectives. Savage seems like a nice guy when talking about life and everyday topics but in political topics he starts sounding like an evangelical preacher with a John Birch Society membership card. ANYONE who strays from the "faith, family, and freedom" Christian patriot position is a COMMUNIST, VERMIN, insert nasty word here in his book.

Savage has called on the arrest and child porn prosecution of the photographer of the controversial breastfeeding Newsweek cover:



Also here is an example of how he argues with liberal callers. This one where he says Obama shouldn't be allowed to be president because his association with Bill Ayers meant Obama can't even be an FBI agent (since when were FBI agents elected officials?)



And of course Savage is OBSESSED with Obama's college transcripts:



However, he does have occasional good ideas like the war on Iraq being mistake, imposing tariffs on China, and reinstating the Glass Steagall Act.

Check out this RationalWiki article I wrote debunking claims about Obama from Savage's 2010 book Trickle Up Poverty.
