Morning Radio

Thurs 11:35 am EDT -- One of the things I like to do during this drive is tune into a syndicated morning radio show call "The Bob&Tom Show". It isn't available in NE. It's on a lot of smaller-market, midwest stations. I first discovered the show during an OSH trip years ago. Now I like to tune in each year. Two funny guys, with a great supporting cast, and good guests.

I usually find stations playing B&T by scanning the dial as I drive each morning. In the process of doing that today I came across Howard Stern. I listened for awhile.

I've never been a fan of Howard. His humor doesn't do it for me. I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It just doesn't make me laugh.

But over the past few years I've become an alt-Howard fan, because of the abuse he's taking from our government, and the fearless stands he's taken in confronting that abuse.

I don't get his humor, but his views on censorship, civil rights, gay and feminine rights, are right-on, and, I think, very brave.
