36. I was once friends with the producer of the Frank Beckman show
I was once friends with the person who produces the Frank Beckman show. Believe me when I say the ultra right wing outlet that the radio has devolved into is not something foisted top-down from corporate ownership. This person is on the lunatic fringe of christian fundamentalism. I could no longer be friends with this person after the became increasingly self-righteous and obstinate. It was sad seeing this nice person become more like the right wing hate radio shows he was producing with its underling meanness and intolerance for anything perceived as being liberal (liberal here defined here as pretty much anything not to his liking). Being a longtime friend I could tolerate the lectures on morality and try to get past them. The last straw broke though when this moron convinced himself that Bill Clinton was an agent of satan sent here to test his faith.

And it doesn't stop there. I have gotten the feeling that the once great WJR goes out of its way to hire religious conservatives to trumpet a format dominated by conservative dogma. There is of course Mitch Albom but have just worked WJR out of my listening schedule and only think to tune it in when there is nothing on my usual venues. I also find www.mitchalbom.com very convenient.
