Broadcast Excellence

It’s an incredible show. Very much recommended.

More right wing misinformation

All this dufus does all morning long is spew right wing talking points, spreads lies and misinformation to his audience and since the average age of his listeners are 65+, they are out of touch with society and reality and lap it up like the Trumptards who believe in the election lies. He knows what he does, continues to do it anyway and wouldn’t know a fact of it hit him square in his face. Pitiful, gross and unAmerican propaganda.

I want them all

Love the interviews, but disappointed how long it takes to get the latest issues. Also disappointed that not all of Paul’s interviews are included. WTKA-AM in Ann Arbor (another Cumulus station) is able to get all portions of their morning show out in minutes after they are complete.
