Too good to be true the return of Bob Grant

Regular readers know that my all time favorite talk show host is Bob Grant. I have listened to the Bob Grant show for 25 years. I actually drove into NYC to hear the final Bob Grant show on WOR. Many greats such as William F Buckley and even Howard Stern paid homage to Grant in the last show.

WABC has always been my home station except for when Bob Grant was on the air, Now Grant is on WABC right after Mark Levin. Now if the clowns at WABC can ditch Art Bell and bring back John Batchelor I could listen 24/7.

I am returning to NYC about the same time Grant takes the air. The only shows I liked that are not available in NYC are the War Room and Glenn Beck. The War Room is an amazing show that is almost like a radio version of Mr Beamish. I will also miss Pam on Thursdays on Montreal radio. However, Curtis and Commie, Limbaugh, Hanity, Levin and Grant with Monica Crowley on Weekends is the best line up ever. WABC is available on the web.

Is THAT where Art Bell went? He's the first talk show host I ever called in to. It was close to midnight, when he finished here in LA twenty years ago or so, and I remember being so scared, lying here alone with the telephone in my hand waiting to go on, that I thought I'd have a heart attack and, because I"d died with the phone in my hand, my friends and family would forever wonder what call I got that killed me!!! I still laugh when I think about that. He kept me on forever because he was almost finished with his show and he didn't want to take another caller, I guess, plus talk show hosts always get off on my name and go on and on about it instaed of my topic, which ticks me off! I've calmed down since and have called in to talk radio about five times since. No heart attack!

I wish we got Bob Grant here. Glad you'll be enjoying him again, Beak. enjoy.

WABC is broadcast over the internet. I spent many a night listening to John Batchelor in VT.
