That 10 minutes was typical Sean. He bloviates about himself more than anyone else.

no, he wouldn’t

he would be just another minor player

If he didnt come after Rush at WABC in NYC, he would never have made it

If he didnt repeat everything Rush said for 5 or 6 years and then replay the same sound bites that Rush played from each show, he would have no material

When Rush chewed him out on the air and told everyone that someone was stealing his sound bites and that since he was a highly paid broadcaster, he should hire someone and learn to do ti himself, Rush was dead right!

All Hannity did was copy Limbaugh like an ape...

It worked.

Darn the luck!

Sean. He bloviates about himself more than anyone else.

Understatement, he is all about himself on the radio. The worst times is
when he allows the ladies on who kiss his butt for two minutes before
they get to any point.

Oh and since I'm on a roll here, that "freedom Ring" song SUCKS.

It's a divorce song, not American freedom.

Do you remember the days when the Great Bob Grant came after Rush. I remember Rush being a guest on Grant’s show saying that if it wasn’t for Bob none of us would be here. Bob Grant is the pioneer of Talk Radio and that is a fact.

BTW, the name of Sean’s theme song is called “Independence Day” by Martina McBride.

I think the title talks all about American Freedom.

Make that three of us now.

I always miss the first minute or two of Hannity because I turn off the sound during that POS noise.

Bob Grant is to talk radio what Cousin Brucie is to music radio. They’re legends and pioneers in their respective radio genres.

Wasn’t it Sean who was stealing his audio soundbites, where Rush had his staff insert watermarks of cuckoo clocks and Ted Kennedy yelping “Hello?!” in the background a few years ago? Rush never said who was stealing his material but he said it was a nationally syndicated host that followed him.

I think the title talks all about American Freedom.

The author of the song (don't recall her name, not Martina singing it) has said it is a pro-choice song, the independence of women from all men because she can choose to remove evidence of him, re: the child she carries, from her womb.

It has nothing to do with American Freedom (and the "roll the stone away" line is outrageously insulting to boot). She was one of the libs all incensed during the 2008 campaign when the McCain/Palin people played it at their rallies. It's not in any way about American Freedom, that Hannity continues to use it shows he knows nothing about the song as well.

And every time Sean plays it, she donates the royalties to Planned Parenthood.

You are absolutely correct. I get to catch Bob on Sundays-12 to 2pm. As Mark Levin says, “Bob, you are the Great One” and that clip is played on WABC, I think at the beginning of Grant’s show.

"The song is about getting a divorce."

Then actually it should be Rush's theme song. (sorry, couldn't help it). I've been divorced twice, so I shouldn't talk, but have learned enough not to do it again. I make bad choices in that department. Now I'm talking about my self, more like Hannity. I can't win.

A lot of people on this forum over the years took Hillary Clinton to task for saying “you know” regularly. Take a few minutes and count how many times Sean says “you know” in a 2-minute period. And he is literally driving me bonkers by his continual use of “literally.”

I checked it out to hear an account of the Rush wedding. After a minute I turned it off because it was all about Hannity.

That’s probably the one thing I enjoy about listening to Hannity. Every time someone says “you’re a great American” he parrots them and responds “you’re a great American” like a trained Rat. Weird.

Well I heard the woman in an interview during the campaign complaining the same way that Jackson Browne and Heart had, that Mc/P hadn't got their permission to use their tunes and demanding they cease playing them at the rallies, totally misrepresenting the rights' issue to those who don't know how it works. She scoffed at Sean Hannity using her song as his theme, she never mentioned divorce.

It's not my music, I've never heard the whole song so if it's about divorce, same insult with the "roll the stone away" line -- that analogy is outrageous to use in that instance as well.

Same here...did he ever discuss the wedding? Couldn’t stand to watch more than 3 minutes of it. I hate rambling and that’s what it was...

The song is about getting a divorce.

Not quite, he song is about domestic abuse sung from a little girl's viewpoint. Here's two lines from the song:

"She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again, but daddy left the proof on her cheek
I was only eight years old that summer, and I always seemed to be in the way"

The mother resolves the abuse by burning up their house, killing both the abuser and herself and making the girl an orphan:

"Well she lit up the sky that fourth of July
By the time that the fire men come
They just put out the flames and took down some names
Sent me to the county home"

Just one more example of endlessly depressing, mind messing country music. I don't know why Hannity uses it. Except maybe it just sounds good until you look at the whole song. Ditto for "Born on the 4th of July" by Springsteen.

The thing that I really hate about that song is this verse

"Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, let freedom ring"

Now, I don't care what anyone says this song is about, that is a reference to the tomb of Christ, and it's dead wrong and the exact opposite of His message. The guilty didn't pay, HE DID. That really irks me, I absolutly hate that song and to be honest, I can't watch hannity, his football throwing and stuff, uggh !

I am Roman Catholic, I do not think of purgatory — I understand that when the stone was rolled away, the Body was no longer in the tomb, MIRACLE. Is she trying to claim some miracle befalls her when she discovers a man beating her is wrong? Courage is a miracle?? Whatever, it’s a misuse of the analogy.

"If it wasn't for"

A fallacious argument. That's the same argument they used for Jackie Robinson in baseball. Many subsequent black players and white commentators claimed that if Robinson failed, there would be no black players in the majors. The fact is there were numerous well-qualified black players waiting their chance if Robinson failed.

The same with talk radio. The key was the elimination of the fairness doctrine. Rush was one of the first (and the greatest), but the rise of conservative talk radio was inevitable in my estimation. Because there was such a demand for it. Paul Harvey should get a little credit too, even though technically he wasn't a typical talk show host. All the pioneers deserve thanks, but if they hadn't succeeded, someone would have (and did) come along.

I am a big Bob Grant fan and I guess my bias shows; I love Rush also and think very highly of him (except for him paying Elton John $1 million to sing at his wedding)he is great Conservative but I was just saying that way back when, Rush did say on the Bob Grant show that if there was not a Bob Grant there would have not been Conservative talk radio. Rush then refered to him as the pioneer. After Rush, I like listening to Steve Malzberg on WOR, 710 on your AM dial (in NY).
