Air America
Advertisements [?]
They just recently (within the last month or so) updated the lineup on AM 1090, Seattle's Air America station. I get up in the morning and head to work, listening to Stephanie Miller, then, if I end up driving delivery, catch Thom Hartmann at 9:00. Ed Shultz is on at noon and Al Franken comes on at 3:00...

I kinda miss Randi Rhodes, but my wife can only handle so much liberal talk (she's more of a Libertarian than anything) so in respect to her I don't listen to the radio in the evenings.

Now...I'm curious to know what everyone here thinks of Thom Hartmann. Speaking strictly for me, I think he's just about the best host they have on. He's thoughtful, insightful, and occasionally quite amusing.

Ed Shultz can be the same, but I have problems with some of his positions. He comes out with some excellent suggestions at times...

Al Franken is occasionally amusing, but some of his bits are just too much.

I like Stephanie Miller...she's a good way to wake up, and, mostly, more amusing than Morning Sedition, which has been moved to the middle of the night.

On weekends I occasionally catch the Young Turks, and I've heard Ring of Fire a time or two.

So...I know a lot of DUers are Randi and Mike Malloy fans and I like both of them--they're firebrands and we need them. But I think we also need the more moderate voices like Thom Hartmann and, to a lesser extent, Ed Shultz.

Any comments?
