9. Yeah, they call it "The Patriot." PUKE!!!!

Repulsive. More like "The Putriot" if you ask me. I used to listen every day, every time I was driving. Stephanie Miller, Bill Press overnights (if I was ever up that early), Thom Hartmann until he changed timeslots, and Randi the Righteous Rhodes! LOVED her show every afternoon. Nicole Sandler would fill in for her and I love Nicole! Met her and really enjoyed our talks. She interviewed me on one of her shows. She's a terrific lady, so well-informed and so warm-hearted.

I MISS that station SO much! This is the second-biggest city in the country, the second-biggest radio market in the country, and there is NO progressive radio, NO progressive talk. NONE. Not even KPFK is listenable anymore. That station's a mess. The only consolation for the loss of KTLK is - it had such a shitty signal you couldn't hear it in most parts of town. So the Gas Giant and his friends were moved from clear-channel 50,000 watt powerhouse KFI to this little rinky-dink piss-ant station with no coverage, no signal strength, and no ratings. And they'd pre-empt the regular programming for the most useless shit, all the damn time, for a special on hangnails and old potato salad. I remember the night of the California primary. A Tuesday night. It was the night Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were having a big showdown, HUGE news all over the country, and what did that station decide to air? A fucking HOCKEY game. It wasn't even some NFL playoff or some such, and who cares, really? I don't even remember. But I was just aghast. BIG NEWS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY and it wasn't as though this couldn't have been anticipated. The California Primary's date was set AGES beforehand. They couldn't even bring themselves to tape-delay the damn thing. The broadcast contract with the NFL, I guess, meant they were airing a fucking hockey game, in Los Angeles, on the night of the California Primary. UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE.

And to add insult to injury, these days, not only are they shoving limbaugh at us on that station, they've got that-guy-whose-name-rhymes-with-Vanity on there, too. Yanked him off KABC Talkradio, a weak competitor to KFI, and loaded him and a whole bunch of other CON bozos on what used to be KTLK. I don't know what the call letters even are, now - if they changed or what. I don't care. And I certainly don't listen.
