Those of you lucky enough to live in the NYC metro area are more than likely familiar with the Great Bob Grant. I have been depressed about the impending date looming on the horizon. Well meaning people ask the most difficult questions. If I were back home I would be one of many. Yet up here I am one of the few who was there.
I try and answer the best I can, but it becomes difficult after a while. I guess people expect a profound survivors wisdom, well the big guy upstairs picked an unusual witness. There is no profound wisdom in acts of evil, juxtaposed with duty and honor. Sadly, this is what life is about sometimes.
There were times that I would be between jobs and the Bob Grant show was the highlight of my day. I would actually schedule my classes around the Grant Show. Grant and not Limbaugh was the big man in NYC and drove the Professors up the wall. A subversive activity in the eighties was to listen to the Bob Grant show on Campus and read the late Eric Briendel.
Also on the Bob Grant interview with Sean Hannity is the mercurial Jay Diamond. Jay Diamond has moved way over to the left but he was a showman. The Urban legend was he was fired after doing a one man version of Its a wonderful life with Al Sharpton in the Jimmy Stewart role. I remember that show and my friends talked about it for weeks. The Diamond segment is at the end of the interview.
The whole segment is on the Mark Levin fan board. It seem that Bob Grant is under contract for another 90 days and there is something planned. This does not make up for those idiots cancelling John Batchelor. Maybe we could see Bob sub for Sean and Levin.
You can find the interview by Googling Mark Levin Fan. If Levin is available in your area tune in. He is the next best thing to Bob Grant.
