Something to listen to you probably will enjoy...
I have to thank Hotwirefor posting something along these lines to remind me..
Here in Boston there is a 24 hr News channel. I am like my Dad in that I need my "15 minutes of BZ" every morning. In a 15 minute burst you get news (local and world) traffic, weather and then sports. It then all but repeats..all day every day. Its not horrid and anyone from MA that reads this blog can't even begin to count on two hands and feet the # of times they sat close to the radio to listen for school closings on snow days.
There is a guy that is on M-F at 7:56 am and I try to time it every day to catch him. His name is Jon Keller and he does a program called "Keller at Large". Most mornings I have "just" left daycare dropping off Littlest March and my ride home I hang on his every word. Its about 60 seconds long and it is an editorial on things both local and national. I know most folks look at editorials as such but this guy gets so much right IMO.
You can listen to some of his posts right
Now, you don't need to download a thing..just click on the play button. He is well spoken and as noted..right on the money. Listen to 11/6/2006 for his talk of the "holiday tree". But listen to the subtle things like what the meaning of Christmas is. I really like the one he did on Kid Rock and Pam Anderson (11/20 or 11/29). He makes a great GREAT comment on the celebrities getting married, lasting months and everyone getting bent..yet a gay couple can be "married" for DECADES and its looked at as wrong...dunno it just makes sense when he says it.
Most of the stuff he does if you don't live in MA or New England you won't "get" but he is worth these 2-3 clicks.
