First hour EST is nearly gone. Other time zones may catch Ann promoting her book on Severin's show at roughly 7:10pm.

Dallas KRLD has preempted him for baseball for weeks now....grrrrrrrrr
Thanks for the chuckle during the 'wind down', after work reading.
He is a first class louse.
Have you listened to him since 2004? Don't be too fixated on people's faults. Nobody's perfect.
I listened to him right up until he got the syndicated deal late last year. His opposition to the war got tiresome after a while, but that's not what bothered me about him. What really irritated the hell out of me was how absolutist he was about his viewpoint on the war, more so than on any other issue. Somebody would try to call in to offer a logical, reasoned argument for the war, and Jay would either shout them down or ridicule them for something petty, like the way they pronounced a word or something.
Hannity et al. are only willing to suggest or imply the same view, and rather weakly.... "Isn't that rather marxist?" is something I would expect from other show hosts.
We need more straight talkers like Jay or Ann Coulter, even if they are wrong at times, calling commies "commies".
I should have added that the reason I stopped listening had nothing to do with my getting annoyed with his opposition to the war. I moved closer to work, and my evenling commute went from 1-2 hours (depending on traffic) to 10 minutes. Not to mention that his new syndicated show is on much later now and doesn't coincide with my commute anyway.
I like Jay for the very reason you mention, that he's a straight talker. I can even tolerate that he was against the war, since he made a good, logical, reasoned, principled case against it (unlike the Lib argument against the war, which is simply that there is NO justified reason to go to war, ever). I just happen to think that there are very good, logical, reasoned, principled arguments FOR the war as well, and I just don't understand why he wasn't even willing to entertain them.
For me, his jump the shark event was the 2004 election night itself.
He was hysterical. I sat at my computer nearly all night, watching the results coming in, listening to the radio. I wanted to barf.
He completely went off the deep end. I lost a lot of respect for him that night.
That, and I detest listening to him expound on how we should just break out the nukes over in Iraq. I am as hawkish as anyone, but to think we could just go nuke a few of the cities in Iraq and the problems would disappear is just...ludicrous.
