I'm surprised Hannity is at 6th, I remember a few years ago he had a solid lock on 2nd and was considered by many to be Limbaugh's heir apparent.

I am surprised that Savage’s listenership has increased, considering the number of guest hosts and encore segments he has had recently.

I am sort of surprised that Levin’s numbers have gone down some. Although, sometimes he does bulldog a topic for days which makes him sound like a broken record.

I'm thinking of posting a thread for Houston's Michael Berry, ClearChannel's 950AM here, opposite Sean Hannity on their other AM Channel 740AM.

Freepers would love him, he's smart and funny and has a black character he calls Shirley Q Liquor doing parodies that is fall out of your chair funny.

He is also Queen Sheila Jackson Lee's worst nightmare.

I still tune in to Rush, but less and less. I guess after 20 years it finally starts to get old. It's just very boring and predictable. Plus, no fault of his, since his hearing loss, his intonation has become a little less friendly on the ears--more nasal, high-pitched. And don't get me started on his tea.

Actually, my favorite radio shows happen to be the least political, and the most local--Marc Simone and Joe Crummie. My least favorite shows right now are Rush, Levin, and Hannity.

Exception--I love when Steyn subs for Rush.

If I could get Savage in good reception, I might listen. He can definitely be entertaining, and he's a pretty good raconteur.

I agree but would like to know your reason for saying that. For several months he stutters and does not finish sentences and too many of those one way conversations with Bo, all of which makes him hard to listen to for me.

I don't dislike Hannity, but he is hard to listen to. He asks never ending questions and talks over his guests and callers.

He sometimes gets side tracked by arguing small points and misses the big picture. I think he starting to lose market share on a consistent basis.

I've been switching over to Michael Medved at the same time. He sometimes causes me to disagree with him, but he is a superb debater with an elephant's memory for facts, figures and historical data. Liberals who attempt to argue him down are at a disadvantage.

Ditto for Sarah Palin, his rivals and a lot of Tea Party patriots. We have to work hard to see that they’re not compromised. We have conservatives running against him.

"And don't get me started on his tea."

Why? His iced tea is great. I even gave some to the libs in the office to try, but wouldn't tell them what brand it was. They all loved it, said it was the best tea they've had in a long time.

I told them it was Rush's tea. If they went and purchased it, I highly doubt they would fess up to it.

Agree.

I can’t stand meat head Medved.

Dead Head is very critical of Cain and he is a big-time rino supporter.

He rambles on tangents, avoids major issues, simply reads headlines off of Drudge and RCP ,etc.

Its beyond boring.

How many times does rush even discuss F&F?

His show is background noise at best lately.

Like I said, I don't have to agree with him to be impressed in his debate abilities. He brings a clarity to his arguments that many other hosts aren't capable of. When he is attacked, he stays calm and refutes allegations with facts that can't be disputed.

He recently spent time on the candidates and although I am not a big Romney fan I understood his point of who may be electable and who may not. His stand is that taking out Obama and gaining the Senate is the most important thing for America.

I have to go along with that. As much as I'd like to see a destruction of the beltway society, I know how disastrous a send Obama term could be.

Why?

Because listening to someone selling tea is not engaging radio. He's got enough obscene profit breaks as it is. I tune in to radio to be entertained, not to listen to sales pitches for tea. I make my own tea. It's not that tough to do.

A 24 Hour On Line directory for all conservative talkers can be found at Radio Time. I have a 'pre set' page and can find alternate time replays for things I missed live, or want to hear again.

I am particularly drawn to Jerry Doyle.

I can make my own mayo as well, tastes just like Hellmann’s. I prefer to buy it instead of making it.

I tune in to radio to get informed. If you want to be entertained, find another avenue.

Rush, other than being informative, also has a great sense of humor, sometimes to subtle for those who have none.

Michael Berry is great, we almost never miss his show.

I don’t think Shirley Q. Liquor is original to his show. You can see/hear a lot of her (his, really) monologues on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shirley+q+liquor&aq=5&oq=shirley+

No thanks. Plenty of entertaining radio. I don't tune in to be informed. There is nothing on the political talk shows that I don't already know.

Rush, other than being informative, also has a great sense of humor, sometimes to subtle for those who have none.

That's true. He can be very funny. He just isn't funny as often as he used to be, or else maybe after 20 years I've heard all his gags before.
