Conservatives prefer "talk" radio. The guys who brought us Rush Limbaugh in the mid-80's tested that theory (and, well...as they say...) Liberals have NEVER generated much of an audience for "talkradio." Liberals used to get their "needs met" via FM rock radio. Not sure where they go, now. Al Franken couldn't save AirAmerica. KXCI audience is no doubt mostly "liberal," by virtue of its "programming." Perhaps John can catch on there. But then, he'd have to be a "volunteer." And his info-mercials would have to help support KXCI.
The future of radio in Tucson: "All 'Cool Church,' all the time."
Look at the positive side: John C can now stay at home with his family for the holidays. AND not have to deal with the traffic around Winterhaven during his commute time.
So sad there is no value placed on someone who knows Tucson and Arizona. Other than KXCI, the radio landscape in Southern Arizona is bleak. Not sure anyone under the age of 60 even listens to it anymore.
How very GOD-LOVING CHRISTIAN to FIRE A MAN the Friday before Christmas.
That IS the problem with SUNDAY CHRISTIANS which is what these old has-beens are all about. Drive slow on Sunday. Pretend to follow the Good Lord's teachings. Act like a sanctimonious saint on Sunday morning. Then be an abomination on this earth at all other times.
So you are upset that conservative KVOI has removed their more liberal talk show host. Isn't this a bit hypocritical, given that your publication, The Tucson Weekly, wouldn't dream of allowing a conservative writer to regularly post conservative articles and opinion? It seems to me that KVOI is simply following your journalism model.
Thank God that smut will no longer fill our airwaves. Anyone who did even the minimal fact checking would know he distorted the truth in a way that was gross and irresponsible. Happy day!
Rip, I'm flattered that you'd confuse me with Dan. But make sure you read things fully before jumping down someone's throat.
Obama is certainly not a superstar; the health care debacle proves that much alone. At the same time, I'm not convinced that anyone else who may have filled his desk chair would have done any different, policy-wise (Obamacare aside).
Hurri, this is the fourth Word Odyssey column, and I've got about 40 more already written, so I won't be short of material any time soon!
No brainer. Al Perry. He even ran for president.
There are many who merit being "busted." I often wondered why anyone would wish to have their effigy on which pigeons will freely defaecate?
How long has this feature been in existence without my knowledge? I can imagine material will run short before long, but I'll enjoy it in the meantime.
Martha McSally should read this:
She is out of line. On this and most everything else.
The "cuts" to military retirees' pensions are for those under 62, presumably still working, many at big defense contractors. So they ain't hurtin' too much! Oh, and the MILITARY recommended this budgetary action.
Wish they'd bring back a few more copy editors. Way too many mistakes in the print product every day, 'specially in the Sports section.
Great pizza but:
The saga of the sausage, pepper and onion sandwich. My girlfriend and I were at Heist for lunch yesterday, we ordered a sausage, pepper and onion sandwich to share with an extra house salad.
The server brought the sandwich out on one plate uncut and stated the chef could not cut the sandwich because it would ruin the aesthetics of the sandwich.
We stated we want to share it and needed for it to be cut and asked for a knife. The server then brought a packet of plastic utensils.
We then removed both of the link sausages from the roll, handled the plate back to the server and asked him to have the chef cut it.
The server then returned with the roll still uncut and a knife along side it and had us cut it ourself which we did and handed the knife back to the server.
The taste of the sandwich was great but the service was terrible and unbelievable. We reported it to the day manager on our exit, he shrugged, shook his head a few times, apologized, and asked us how the sandwich tasted.
We have been to the Heist several times for the pizza, we have always sat at the bar and had no issues being served.
Will we go back to the Heist for pizza? At this point I am not sure, I hope this gets back to the owner, perhaps he will offer us an incentive to try again and take steps to remedy this so it won't happen again to anyone else.
To those who disliked my comment above: the truth only hurts those who lack it within themselves.
Mrs. Gabrielle Giffords!
How do they expect to maintain their one child policy when nobody in China seems to know where babies come from?
Who are the bad guys? The narcos who furnish a much-wanted product at market prices? Or the government that hunts them down and kills them?
