    I'm talking about non-religious per se. Just curious to see who is listened to. There was so many, that a poll would seem almost impossible to do, but I did find a way. Rant and judge away, y'all!!

    Glenn Beck - only because Rush is not on the air in this area. I listen mostly for the entertainment value. Beck and crew are hilarious! :lol:

    I might also add, that since receiving an awesome MP3 player for the December holiday, I rarely listen to the radio any more.

    Thanks PuritanCovenanter! There's an interview with Rush Limbaugh he does on his page. I got to hear somebody new and my fave at the same time. Mega Dittos!

    Going with the humor value mentioned above, I'd have to say Michael Savage. We used to listen to him at work just for kicks.

    Really? That is kind of amazing actually. Wytheville seems like a big enough place that they would have it.

    I agree with Glenn Beck. He is a hoot.

    Rush used to be on the local AM station, but they dropped him several years back. If you're willing to put up with lots of static, stand on your left foot while holding a ball of tin foil and touch the top of the radio with your right big toe, you can hear him on the Talk Radio AM station out of Blacksburg. But three hours is a long time to stay in that position. :lol: Seriously though, the mountains play havoc with radio signals around here, especially AM.

    :ditto: (How ironic to say ditto about somebody besides Rush :lol: )

    I grew tired of Limbaugh, and his ways, a long time ago.

    :ditto: Same with Hannity for me, honestly to probably an even greater extent.

    :agree: I too moved away from Hannity. I became disgusted with Sean and Rush at about the same time.

    I like Mike Savage, but he comes on too late around here for me.

    Before I got saved, I liked Stern, later I listened to Rush, now my Mercedes has a Sirius so I listen to the Jazz Cafe. At home I listen to podcasts.:2cents::popcorn:

    Mike Savage doesn't come on in my area. In this liberal wasteland, if one of them accidentally turn to him on the radio, they would spontaneously combust.:popcorn:

    I listened to Savage before he was syndicated on KSFO in San Francisco. I have always liked to listen to him. His theology or lack thereof is painful.

    Medved ... Hands down ... Is the best debater on the air.
     
  18. Craig

    Craig Puritan Board Senior

    I'll listen to Rush...occassionally...not a huge fan anymore.

    Savage is a nice change of pace...

    Glenn Beck is my favorite...by FAR. I don't agree with him on certain things, but he seems to be spot on most other places (except for the magic undies, of course), and he's hilarious. He's one of the few talking heads that will consider just how RIFE the Republican party is with problems...other will allude, but he's solid...he talks about the economy and doesn't sugar-coat it (to say the least!).

    I've never listened to Medved (not sure if he's on around here), and I can't stand Hannity.

    I have been listening to Jim Rome since his 'scrub Saturdays' show on the Mighty 690 in San Diego.

    I also listen to Hugh Hewitt (sp)

    Hugh Hewitt. Center-right, law professor, former Nixon aide, author, and staunch evangelical presbyterian. More light than heat (unlike most other talk shows).

    This is great y'all. With the internet, I can listen to these people whom I've not heard of.

    Keep the votes comming! :popcorn:

    Hugh Hewitt. I don't always agree with him, but he is by far the best on the air. His show is always intellectually stimulating (I love the "smart guys" feature) and entertaining (look forward to his Friday afternoon movie segment every week).

    I used to listen to Medved, and still appreciate his movie reviews, but his abrasive manner really turned me off to his show.

    Dan (ReformedCop), you said:

    You really think so? He just hangs up on people who disagree with him! I enjoy Hewitt's discussions more than Medved's debates.

    I really enjoy Laura Ingraham. Former Supreme Court law clerk and Reagan aide. Sharp as a tack, insightful, very funny, and much better looking than Rush, Hannity, Medved, or Savage. :)

    Mega Dittos on Laura Ingraham.

    I listen to Rush and Sean on occasion, but I'd have to say I enjoy listening to Glenn most. Sometimes my wife and I will watch him on the tube as well. I agree with Craig, I don't see eye to eye with him on every single issue, but I appreciate his overall common sense on a lot of the issues and his sense of humor.

    Yeah, you never know what he's going to say. Ken Hamblin (aka the Black Avenger) was similar, although Savage has taken it up a notch. I don't think Hamblin has been on the air in several years. His popularity peaked in the early/mid 1990's when he followed Rush in many markets. What Savage and Hamblin have in common are that they are both New Yorkers (originally) who can sometimes wax poetic on issues that have nothing to do with politics.

    I probably don't have any one "favorite" at this point. Maybe Moon Griffon, who is a conservative host who focuses on Louisiana politics. However, his show is not available in the New Orleans market, where I live now, probably b/c the stations tend to have local hosts.

    In his own way, Hannity has grown almost as egotistical and pompous as O'Reilly, often cutting off anyone who dares to disagree with him.

    I don't listen to Limbaugh every day like I used to 15 years ago, but his humor sets him apart from many other hosts.

    Neil Boortz is a libertarian and worth a listen at times.

    in my opinion O'Reilly is worse on theology, hands down. It was excrutiating to listen to him when it would come up. He is a Catholic, but his pontificating on that subject is woefully ignorant of even RC teaching, much less the Bible. He speaks far too confidently on issues that are outside of his realm of expertise. Any listen to his radio show will reveal that he is no conservative even in the neo-con sense. He clearly began to position himself as a moderate in 2005-6 when it became clear that the tide of public opinion was turning against the GOP.

    O'Reilly is pretty bad. I don't think he even knows what he believes, he just flogs off whatever will keep his ratings up.:2cents::popcorn:
