Stopped listening to the formerly excellent morning radio program that KERN used to have several years ago. Remember when it mattered, when there was live radio when 9/11 happened and we actually heard real news? When they switched to the insanity of the Moonie Church via the "Washington Times," and then the ugliness of the "conservative" female commentator Ingraham, we totally gave up on local radio. No plans to return, even with LeMucchi, who is actually competent, and even less interested knowing that the moron prankster and low-life Scott Cox will broadcasting. Aside from the fact that Dick and Roger are bffs, why would anyone think this plan is a good one? Oh, THAT'S why it's a good idea.
