Our local talk radio station has seen better days. In the last few months they have lost either permanently or for an extended period of time, all 3 of their biggest names. Combined these hosts have probably 100 years of experience in the business. Naturally, the station is struggling to get talent on the air, which means guest hosts.
I don’t know what it is about guest hosts but when they are on the air, all the loony tunes call in. The other day riding home, I heard two of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard a caller say:
The first woman, whose name I have mercifully forgotten, opened the phone call by saying she was a history teacher and as such she could shed some light on the topic. (Which she never did BTW) I forget the topic but when the guest host asked her some question that challenged her obviously silly position and she replied, “Well, I don’t like to talk about thing unless I was really there.” I was screaming at the radio for the host to ask her how old she was.
Later a gay rights advocate was whining about something when he said of some religious group, “The gay community is really getting tired of these people and their intolerance.” Apparently not all gay men own mirrors.
Now you know why I’ve been listening to music in the car.
