Good shows, a million ads

Way too many ads. It’s awful to sit though so many
cheap commercials to listen to the shows

Unsafe Space for “Progressives” !

Music that reflects all the Best Of “The Greatest Generation”. Amazingly, “trolls” who hate and discrimate the music they claim want to hear, have posted negative reveiews based on this station suporting itself via advertising dollars as opposed to governement funded propaganda as done by main-stream media outlets. We truely feel sorry for the indocrinated “useful idots” who are supporting the Lefts “Corporate Communsim”! The very monopolist Corporations and NGOs run by the worlds most wealthy Elites are the very Ruling Elite who are funding the Marixist and Communsit future of censorship and a Police State..The “Greedy Reset”= Neo-Serfdom ...everything the Sponsers of this station expose by not surendering to “The censorship of information” and “thought police”. The Left suport and Globalists are the “Global (expanded from National) Faucists” ..which makes us all laugh when those who DARE present facts that counter the MSM “Popaganda” get called Faucists...keep rocking the best music from the greatest generation...before “Learned Helplessness” was bred into post 1950s kids.

Right-wing comedy!

I LOVE this podcast! Plenty of terrific old-time radio shows, which I really enjoy listening to... but the bonus is the hilarious commercials! They're all outrageous right-wing goofball commercials for wacky stuff like My Pillow, but insane conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell. And ads for "The Epoch Times," the extremist right-wing slanted newspaper that claims they present both sides, HAHA! That one is especially hilarious, because it has this ridiculously over-dramatic music to reel in conservative goofs who are always scared that the world is coming to an end. Anyway, those are just two of the many hilarious commercials you'll hear on here. Love the old shows and hilarious commercials, but one star because I don't support fascism.
