We had Jim Hightower on for quite a while. You may ask him if he remembers 
coming to Boston, we had lunch together and I had high hopes for his show, 
as he is a superb master of the English language. He expresses ideas in a 
very interesting and poetic way, and is as good a spokesperson as the left 
has. Alan Colmes on the radio is also superb.

Jim Hightower wouldn't let go of live broadcast from a noisy restaurant, 
lousy acoustics, and mediocre live western music. Appeals to his management 
met with frustration, and we made several changes. Before I got sick and 
sold our other stations, we had Bob Grant and then Joan Rivers in evening 
drive. She is, by the way, a superb talk show host at her best.

Now we have Mike Gallagher, and later on a replay of Ollie North. North is 
quite droll, but needs help from a crew of renegade "assistants"

I was always looking for talk show hosts that, conservative or liberal were 
friends of Israel, and with the exception of Bob Grant, were civil to 
members of all races. What a pity that the most popular local shows in 
afternoon drive (Howie and Jay) are so nasty to non-anglos.
