WARF 1350 AM Akron lineup congeals

Breaking news from Akron, Ohio...

As previously discussed, WJMP dumped Air America Radio. That left the field open for the new WARF 1350 AM, which has quickly picked up AAR's premier shows: Al Franken and Randi Rhodes. Filling out the time slots are Stephanie Miller, Big Ed Schultz, Bill Press, and The Lionel Show.

One minor complication for Randi: as pointed out here, she will occasionally be preempted for the Akron Aeros of the Double-A baseball league.

Too bad that WARF is going to AA. They might have barely made it with the lineup they had. OK, maybe not...Lionel is unlistenable, but they at least had radio professionals on. I disagreed with everything he said, but Thom Hartmann at his worst does better radio than Al Franken.

WARF is a looser station. I am a looser too, so listen to me on WARF....ARF,,,ARF.

The Bill Press show is all empty calories. Who he knows, who said hello to him last night, who stopped at his table in the restaurant. Hippos swallowing dwarves. Get rid of it. I listen to WCKY through the static rather than Press.
Joe Finan is a boring person with a whiney voice. He is like Lanigan Lots to say, no value.
I'm not sure what Ed Schultz is supposed to give us. But compared to Randi Rhodes, he is strictly second team.
You may have forced me over the edge. I'm going out today to look at XM radios

What has happened to Joe Finan? I loved his show. Thanks so much. momdsbsj@aol.com
