I listen to John and Ken often. Their speech patterns are very obnoxious. However I think they're right most of the time.

Tim Conway Jr. (KFI, 6PM weeknights) is rather annoying. I heard him saying if you hate America you should leave. I also heard him commenting on Mike Farrell, the anti-death penalty guy. He said Farrell says we should look the other way if somebody commits a terrible crime. I'm sure that's not what Mike Farrell believes.

I started listening to 870 AM which is nationwide syndicated, and all conservative. The one I like is Michael Medved. But I turn off 870 when they start talking about the bible. Larry Elder is okay.

I haven't found anything interesting on 790 AM, have you?

Well mighty KABC finally stopped the embarrassing position of broadcasting the NBC local newscast instead of their own content. However Ben Shapiro needs folks like when he was a morning drive host to break up his fast, don't let someone else break in during a pundits chat program, style

Before McIntyre airs they broadcast a local televised newscast. Are you saying they also did that in the PM as well?

They had the 6PM KNBC news on for a year or more I just had it on scam a week ago and found Shapiro doing an hour monologue in the spot.

I listen to Handel on the News on KFI on iHeart Radio on my iPhone every morning.

What a hoot!

I like Mcintyre , but not many hosts that I like are there anymore. They left because of them broadcasting sports during their shows. Larry Elder and Mark Levine were both on the air at those times. I didn't know that Ben Shapiro had a show on 790. 870 am is where I first heard him in the mornings.

I used to download the KFI podcasts, mainly Jon and Ken, The Jesus Christ Show, and occasionally Bill Handel, and Gary and Shannon.

Then they got rid of the direct MP3 downloads, and replaced it with the iHeart app, which I dislike. So now I only listen to them live on the radio, but not often.

Occasionally I'll listen to 930 AM, the Catholic radio station.

More often I'll listen to podcasts rather than radio shows. So many podcasts to be found on the internet, for every interest and topic.

I hate it when they broadcast sports -- don't we have enough sports stations in L.A.?

I remember back before Rush Limbaugh and Michael Jackson ruled LA radio Dodger season would be like his vacation season I don't know if the Dodgers paid back then. Today I think the Kings do pay. So for the station it is like a TV station selling an infomercial block of time instead of selling advertising and perhaps paying Larry Elder for that block of time.

Besides if a sport station sold to the Kings then they loose their available time to take care of Laker, Clipper, Angels and Dodger fans.
