Ok gang, I was sitting here surfin, and listening to my talk radio and sports radio channels, and got to wondering, what everyone else listens to. So, i'll start, with names, and how to find them. Feel free to do the same. (hope this doesn't break a rule.)
Howard Stern - from binary newsgroup. Opie and Anthony - XM radio Phil Hendrie - Various sites on the net Jim Rome - WFLL The Fan (Airs the show online)
That's just a few of the shows i listen to .. anyone have any good stations/shows that not everyone has heard?
Thanks for reading! Want something more interesting to read? How about the history of Jim Crockett Promotions? Then go here: http://www.jcpwrestling.com
I listen to talkradio in my car. Rush Limbaugh Jim Rome Sean Hannity Dan Patrick Show Phil Hendrie Loveline and sometimes GASP Bill O'reilly, but usually I put it on the University's classical station when he is my only other option.
I used to listen to Sports Talk 790 The Zone (790thezone.com) religiously back when I was living in Atlanta. It was quality sports talk radio without guys screaming at each other, or guys calling in as some crazy persona.
It was almost what I'd imagine a CRZ-ran radio station would be like.
I haven't listened to it much since I moved to Seattle, because I can't listen at work on my Mac, but from what I hear, they still bring the goods. Go dig through their archives and find the OJ interview. It's amazing.
"It's the four pillars of the male heterosexual psyche. We like naked women, stockings, lesbians, and Sean Connery best as James Bond because that is what being a [man] is." -Jack Davenport, Coupling
I was kidding about that whole "Fire Jim Tressel" thing. Really. I was.
Balancing things out a bit, I listen to Air America's feed on XM Radio - or at least Al Franken's show (and usually Unfiltered with Lizz Winstead - the creator of "The Daily Show" and Chuck D.) I try to catch Randi Rhodes in the afternoon, but I've usually drifted away from the computer by that point.
"The national government will maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests. It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality. Today, Christians stand at the head of our country. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit. We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press - in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past years." -----Adolf Hitler
Phil Hendrie (THE BEST) Laura Ingram Sean Hannity Michael Savage Glenn Beck Pat Grey Ernie Brown
I don't listen to very much sports talk, but my favorite sports talk guy is definitely Arnie Spaniard. I listened to him in Houston until he just about went off the air around 1999-2000. Now I've found him once again on Sportingnews.com.
"Don't compare my arm...to your cheap arm!" -Edward Elric
I listen to the Dan Patrick Show (on ESPN Radio), Mike and Mike when I'm up early/late enough, Todd Wright All Night (same thing), Dale Julin ( A local news-talk guy). Hell pretty much this stations progamming: http://www.cvsportingnews.com/cv/110/158.shtml
I also listen to a local talk show hosted by Chris Daniel on an FM station, and, I've started listening to the webcast's of Mr. Tony's show. I'm looking into getting that program that Mean Mark Coale has talked about.
The show I won't miss is Bill Bennett's morning show (Morning in America), which is usually on the Salem stations (and XM). He doesn't yell at his callers and he fits my ideological background. Plus they talk about food as needed.
I also listen to Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager.
I'd check out the Air America gang, but I don't have XM and they haven't made it to THIS red state.
There's a local guy here named Terry Meiners who's very funny and ofetn insightful as well.

I stray away from the pompous GOP frat boys and Lezbo loving shock jocks that plauge the syndies for a good local radio program. WNIR here in Akron has a good rotation, Howie Chizek and Joe Finan, both intelligent guys who run a quality program which actually talks about something more relevant to my life then Kobe Bryant and Scott Peterson.
I do like Jim Bohannon, but he's probably too moderate to get much mention.
Outside of baseball I don't like sports, so I won't comment much on that. I did listen to Ron Barr at nights, but he's been booted off locally by the FOX guys.
Generally, I avoid talk radio altogether. Something about the format where I want to hit every single host in the face with a shovel.
Then again, whenever I've gotta share a car with my father (he has to drive, of course) he listens to an assortment of conservative shows. Today, Neal Boortz, Limbaugh, and Michael Savage. Yeeargh. Maybe that explains my feelings on talk radio in general?

Although I used to be a Stern fan in Chicago... the majority of what I listen to is local.
I've mentioned before about Boers and Bernstein in Chicago on WSCR-AM (670), but there's a couple of locals that I'll listen to sometime on the air. I'll sample Bob & Tom's show every now and then, too.
Whenever I'm close enough to Miami/SoFla between 10 am and 2 pm on weekdays, I like to turn on WQAM 560 AM and listen to the Neil Rogers show. A nice alternative to some of the talk show hosts that I don't like (Stern, Limbaugh, etc.), and refreshing in that he has no problem blasting both sides of the political spectrum (though I'll concede that his site lately seems to be leaning fairly strongly toward the left). Also has some funny stuff that he'll play during his show, too.
See what other folks have to say about me: "Rage, you are awesome." - Parts Unknown, April 10, 2004. "Big Props to RageRockrr: '+ Oh, and three simple words: Optimus. Fucking. Prime.' You're DAMN right!" - Bizzle Izzle, August 7, 2002. "Thank you for bringing back a DEEP 80s memory, Rage. THANK YOU." - DMC, June 6, 2002. "Thanks RageRockrr! You're the coolest!" - Excalibur05, March 10, 2002.
I mostly listen to ESPN radio and the local sports guys, but I'll occasionally flip to Rush, Snow, O'Reilly, etc. just so I can hear what I'm supposed to be fired up about in the world today. It's rare that I agree with any of them, but when they're interviewing people (like congressmen and the like) I find it to be very interesting and informative, and would encourage them to do that rather than take phone calls from either a) really stupid people to yell at and berate or b) really stupid people who want to praise the host for always being right all of the time and/or "looking out for" kids/elderly/soldiers/Americans/new trendy cause.
I usually wake up to Mike and Mike on ESPN News, and then hit the Herd until class or TK on the internet. I don't listen to Jim Rome that often, only because I stopped listening to him because he used to knock TK off an hour early on my station. After Dan Patrick, we get Pat Boland (local sports guy) on 1450 AM and a few times a week we get Phil Grosz (sp?) and Jed Donohue from Blue/White Illustrated on 1390 AM. They basically talk Penn State sports, usually football, and their "scoops" are either wrong or several weeks late.
I work overnights, and would be unable to get throught it without Rick Ballou and Kevin Wheeler on Sporting News Radio. The back up is MPOS (Mark Patrick on Sports) on Fox Sports because usually at 5am Murray in the Morning starts to suck.
I try to hit ESPN Page 2 every day, not just for Simmons, but I like Shanoff doing the Quickie, there's usually some decent random column, and every once in a while THE Dr. Hunter S. Thompson graces us with his presence. Other than that...
