Her last show was on WABC in 2002. Lynn didn’t want to be paired with Farber, right?

My wife could never figure out why I listened to her on WABC. She was definitely an acquired taste.

On lynnsamuels.com, which I presume was her personal blog, there is an audio of a melange of Sirius shows she had done around Christmas time in past years. I listened to it for the sake of nostalgia, even though I never listened to her on satellite radio. I presume that the FCC has no rules for satellite, because there are a slew of F-bombs in her monologues, almost all completely unnecessary considering the mundane subjects she was discussing at the time.

I didn’t like her. She was liberal, and wasn’t nice to conservatives on the show.

She was referring to Norman Rosenbaum, who was seeking justice for his brother’s murder. Apparently she didn’t like the idea of Norman trying to hold Al Sharpton, to an extent, morally culpable.

God bless your soul, Lynn. You were one of a kind. A wonderful person. Funny. Witty. Opinionated. Outspoken. Always entertaining. Humane. A real mensch! In a just world, you would have been a huge star. You were always true to yourself, the highest praise I can offer. And this praise comes from an ardent right-winger. I miss you already!

She was one of the better hosts on WABC-back when Steve Malzberg and James & Joel had their own shows.

Now the station, excluding Rush, is in the doldrums.

Doug McIntrye left, Joe Crummy is gone-and is being replaced by that open borders idiot Geraldo-and we're saturated with Mark Simone.

Blecch!

It's getting as bad as WOR.

I’ll miss her.

Here’s a clip I found from a few years back talking about Obama; she was no fan. Whoever posted it gave it the title:

“Barack Obama Belittle and Stereotype Working Class Americans.”

Lynn lived near me in Woodside. I used to see her in the supermarket but had not seen her in a while. She was friendly although I disagreed with her on most issues. RIP.

Damn
First Neil Rogers last year, now her.

Just damn
As if radio doesn’t suck enough, we keep losing the good intellectually honest ones.

Lynn was as far left as they come, but condolences to her family, friends and fans anyway.

She wasn’t nice to conservatives on the show.

I don't ever recall her being short or snippy with me, nor was she ever less than pleasant with Carl. (What ever happened to CfOB after his gig with Newsmax?)

She was the quintessential leftist New Yorker Jewish liberal with the raspy voice. I have to say she always tried to be fair in her own odd way. She was more a cultural leftist who inherited her leftism from her parents. She wasn’t dogmatic or doctrinaire which drove some her fellow radicals nuts. RIP

He's no longer affiliated with NewsMax?

Since when?

The last time I saw his name it was on a book on a Barnes & Noble display-I think it was about the Clintons-but that was years ago.

On the rare occasion I heard her she had a great sense of New York/Jersey humor. Loved her direct accent.

I heard her with other callers, and she was similar to Bob Grant. I only heard her the last couple of years she was on WABC, aside from when I heard my parents listening to her when I was young. I don’t know what happened to Carl Limbacher.

from my NY Message board post.

Lynn Samuels was the house Lib for WABC Radio in NY.

she was an affable lefty...could not stand her politics but something to like about HER as a person.

Rest in Peace Lynn.
