Because there isn't enough right-wing gibberish on radio these days..

Citadel has flipped 98.9 FM from Gen X music to right-wing talk, featuring that Alex P. Keaton wannabe Ben Ferguson from 2-6.  Ferguson is apparently the only local "talent" featured hosting a show, although the Radio-Info Memphis board discussion says Bev Hart of Wake-Up Crew fame is on the station.

Ok, so that's WREC AM 600, Flinn's Folly 87.7 The Point, and now News Talk 98.9 (600 has Faux News, what will this station use?), so what's someone who is NOT right of center supposed to do?  I won't be listening, that's for sure.

I am thankful that I have WQOX, WEVL, WUMR, WKNO, and WMAV (MPR Oxford) plugged into my car radio; that's a welcome relief from the buffoons on these other stations.

By the way, this is my 2,100th post.

Don't forget KWAM 990, another right wing talk station.

Hey, at least Alex P. Keaton had decent bumper music.

Talk on both ends is cheap, facile and designed to create theatre rather than enlightenment.
