Today's kinky Randi Rhodes visual

...given her penchant for spewing forth [phwoar --LW] -- on air and off -- it comes as no surprise she's not particularly beloved by some folks in the South Florida radio community.

"She is just low-class," says Linda Marx, widow of the late WJNO talk-show host Jack Cole.

Marx recalls an incident at a Christmas bash the couple threw in 1999, when an inebriated Rhodes squatted over the Christmas tree as a party antic. Rhodes admits she had a few martinis, but insists she didn't urinate.

"I pretended," she says.

Marx indicates otherwise. "I'm just happy the tree was on tile and not carpet," she says...

[...non-pee-related sections follow...]

"She's very self-destructive," says Bill Newgent, Rhodes' first producer at WJNO, who adds that, after a few months of working with her, "I went to management and said, 'She's nuts. I can't do this.' "
From the largely complimentary Palm Beach Post story "Rhodes' rage retains fury on new national stage left". Randi apparently hates the PBP; apparently they're trying to woo her back.

Note also this bit:
"I said I would never come back to New York unless I could live in Manhattan. I wanted to come back like a real New Yorker. I didn't want to be from the provinces anymore," she says.

The point was driven home when Rhodes showed up for her first day of work and realized that the building is where she worked as an office temp, long before she began a career in radio that would take her to Texas, Alabama, Wisconsin and South Florida (she started at Miami's WIOD-AM 610, before moving to WJNO in 1994). "When I saw the view of the Chrysler building, I nearly burst into tears," she says...

I love Randiiiii. She is out there on the front lines making liberals look bad every stinkin' day. What Republican wouldn't love that? She's a hysterical, unhinged, stammering inebriate.

Air America is different from the majority of AM( and FM in Boston)talk stations in that it always backs up its statements with verifiable facts. Their right wing counterparts could learn from them. Now Boston is back to Berin 1933 and Airstrip One again. Save for the Red Sox games and the big clock called WBZ1030AM(setting one's watch on the hour , weather on the 10's): who needs AM radio?I'm back to the BBC(I own a short- wave reciever) and NPR again(though the latter gets more yuppie as time goes on). Goodbye, Radio Free (Air ) America; I hope it's not farewell. See you in Hell , David Brudnoy! Cheers, Bill Kondroski
