I heard a spot on 760AM this morning for Gloria Neal's new program and they are actually promoting it as "The Glo Show" ... she wants to be part of our lives and us to be part of her life. Sounds real engaging, uh?
Yup, I have to wonder with you that this isn't part of an effort to weaken 760AM before the election.
Clear Channel owns 760AM and we all know now that Bain Capital owns a big chunk of Clear Channel .... hmmmm.
In fact, even Sirota's current show has gotten weaker and weaker as time has gone by. In the beginning David had more in-depth discussions about national and Colorado issues. Now it has devolved into a kind of current affairs variety show -- he never spends more than about ten minutes on any given issue. And, Sirota now spends as much radio time talking about popular culture as political topics.
So, the best part of 760AM programing now is Bill Press early in the morning, Ed Schultz ... sometimes Thom Hartmann (his show isn't what it used to be) and, surprisingly to me, the Alan Combes show that starts at 10:00PM (he is quite a skilled talk show host and pretty funny).
Norman Goldman and Leslie Marshall are just horrible, horrible talkers.
