- RebelSansClue said Happy New Year! Is the Savage podcast any good?
- Fred Stiening said The podcast has arrived. It is free, at least for now.
- RebelSansClue said I don’t even want to think about that. The day when Rush does his last show (if he hasn’t already) is getting ever nearer. I still think there’s a place for traditional radio though. Outdoor internet connections aren’t as stab...
- RebelSansClue said Yeah, but this site has better content!
- Fred Stiening said Kind of like here.
- RebelSansClue said Meh. No big loss. His web site looks about 2004ish. Really amateurish.
- Fred Stiening said Journeyman radio host Mancow is leaving WLS-AM in Chicago at the end of the month
- Fred Stiening said After I wrote that, one station defaulted to using iHeartRadio for the stream. How Amazon decides which streaming service to use I have no idea. It appears that you can tell Alexa which streaming service you want to use.
- Fred Stiening said The flip side is – what is to prevent a vaccine maker to claim their vaccine is 90% effective if it is a placebo and 80% are not susceptible to infection. The election is over after all. The Trump pandemic is over.

As I warned, when money rushes back out of the U.S. Dollar (the dollar lost about 3% today), the entities that were stuffing their money into 30 year US Treasuries thinking they were “safe” were going to lose a LOT … Continue reading
It now takes $1.40 to buy a Euro, and even fewer yen than yesterday. I know this gets boring and it is frustrating the hell out of me that the financial press still don’t get it – when the dollar … Continue reading
Clear Channel added another 200 firings to their legacy. This week it was the intermediate size markets where local “talent” and back office staff got the axe. What this means is even more clear channel stations carrying national programming and … Continue reading
WIBG-AM in Atlantic City could be a sign of things to come. It was been running religious informercials but has decided to switch to Tslk, including Michael Savage. PPM data is picking up that people won’t listen to a 30 … Continue reading
Yesterday was “Bot Nuke” day on Runescape (a very large multi-user game that has been around since about 2006). The idea was that people were complaining the game was no longer fun because of all the accounts using “bots” to … Continue reading
The October 23rd “deadline” for solving Europe’s problem came and went. Instead of the 30%, then 50%, then 60% writeoff being demanded against the banks holding Greek debt, a 100% loss is looking more and more likely. The Dollar vs … Continue reading
Streaming Radio Guide is mainly used by people from Google finding well known programs – not about individual radio stations – which is confusing to people in the “Radio Biz”, and a bit threatening to egos which are rampaant in … Continue reading
