* 630 WMAL Ping List *

(Yes, I know this does not include ‘pings’ on Pet Liberal Jerry Klein, but hey, I thought we’d give him a shot on progressive talk tadio and see how he does there).

Jerry will be leaving 630 WMAL at the end of this week.

Hi Silvie

Wanted to say how sorry I was to see Chris Plante gone. Did you know beforehand? Did HE know beforehand?

Thought he was on the WMAL cruise or some other station promotion.

Do you know where he’s headed?

Nobody knew beforehand, including him. I’ll let you know if and when he re-surfaces anywhere else as I’m still in touch with him and his producer Geoff.

Yes, it’s sad & tragic.

* 630 WMAL Ping List *

Silvie, can you add me to the WMAL ping list?

Plante is gone? I can't believe it. He's the best. I remember thinking a couple of times, though, that his high degree of passion was going to get him into trouble. Sometimes he just wasn't able to pull back, which is part of what I loved about him. I also remember cringing when he told a Michael Jackson joke a month or two ago (Question: What's Michael Jackson's favorite song? Answer: "Forever Blowing Bubbles") I thought it was funny as hell, but I figured the brass at WMAL wasn't going to like it much. What a shame he's gone. Austin Hill doesn't do much for me, so it may be music from now on during my morning drives.

Yes, Kevin, he’s very special. I have a list of about 20 famous quotes from Chris that I re-read every so often and laugh my derriere off.

I’ll add you to the WMAL Ping List. Welcome!

STOP calling them Liberals. They like the term.
They are socialists. Call them socialists.

OK, get rid of Chris Plante, replace him with Bill Press. I guess WMAL is seeing the writing on the wall for implementation of the Fairness Doctrine...sigh

I remember Bill Press' short stay on WMAL's morning drive show. What a putz.

Well, wishing Jerry the best - he'll be among friends there!

Hey, did you ever show up at the Spy Museum event with your daughter in Feb.? I didn’t get to meet you.

We did, and I pointed you and Chris out to my daughter, but she didn't feel like meet & greet (felt a little shy), so we sat back and enjoyed the event.

...so it may be music from now on during my morning drives.

Laura Ingraham on 570am 9am-noon.

Silvie, I thought it was Andy and Grandy until Mornin' Slow Joe in the AM? What's this about Press having a show that Jerry can fill in? (I've been radio deprived in the morning for the past 4 months.)

P,

Bill Press was on 1260AM until 2 months ago, when that station dropped the ‘progressive’ format. Now he’s on Sirius and listeners can also tune in live via his own website — and Press was out for a few days, so Jerry Klein filled in.

Yes, you are correct — Grandy & Andy are on now until 10 a.m., followed by Joe & Mika.

How long can Andy, Grandy, & Brian keep up with a five-hour long daily program? Looks to me like that will wear them out soon.

What’s one additional hour, really?

I guess they really get encouraged and build up more energy knowing that they’re the only local programming at WMAL right now. They know that what happened to Plante, Core, Graham, etc. could happen to them too.

That 9 to noon slot has always been tough. I remembered that I actually kind of liked Sam Donaldson in the 9 to 10 ~ and I don’t particularly like him, but he had some good “Olde School” stuff from the Reagan years that was fun to hear.

MAL really screwed the pooch when they bent over for CAIR with the Michael Graham firing.

I won’t ever accidentally tune in to a Sunday afternoon of Komrade Klein!

They should give Silve an hour slot.

I think they sound tired already, but they may just be feeling the new hour out.

Wat’s up with the Planteman? Do you know where he may land next??

Maybe we will be lucky and JK will make a mistake and have Chris Plante on for an hour daily.

Chris could beat him up as he used to do on Sunday afternoons.

I am referring to slo jo and mica whatever (bryzhenki’s daughter?) This will be a non starter.

But A & J wear thin in the 5th hour.

Don’t know if you listened several months ago, but Bill Bennett was a pretty decent alt to A & J.. I like mancow for about 5 minutes but he’s all over the place.

The morning is about energy and attitude. A & J is about loud.

Enough already, have to get back to the nobama watch.

"Joe Scarborough & Mika Bzesinkski (sp?) replaced Chris Plante — NOT Bill Press."

I accidentally caught them for 30 seconds this morning -- it was all I could take before I switched the channel. Is everything a joke with those two? They sounded sophomoric.

True, Ever.

Ahhhhh, how I’ve missed Chris this week, especially after the Somalian pirate hostage incident... I miss his thoughts & analyis...
