Do you miss Neal Boortz?

Donald Trump protege Andy Dean left his nationally syndicated Radio show to start up a podcasting service. According to the Atlanta Journal and Constitution (owned by Cox Media, the owner of WSB-AM in Atlanta, where Boortz’s show was produced), Neal has decided to return to work. He does still fill in for Herman Cain once in a while and does commentary bits on WSB

Here are the details

For the tiny price of $4.99 a month, you will receive a 20 minute podcast 2 or 3 times a week.

Near the end of his radio career, Neal had become unhappy with living in Atlanta, and discretely moved to Florida and was calling in his radio show. Topics about living in retirement in Florida, like wondering why senior women play Bingo are likely topics.

    I subscribed to Andy Dean’s show on ConnectPal. It’s almost ok, but not as good as his radio show was. I checked out Neal’s ConnectPal subscription, and I used to listen to him on free radio. I might drop Andy’s, and check out Neal’s for a while. Interesting business model ConnectPal, and there are quite a few different types of content providers on ConnectPal to choose from.

    Listened to Boortz for many years out of a Jacksonville station. He was entertaining for the most part but later on he seemed to get bitter, very condescending and arrogant. He hated religious people, liberals, RINO’s and smokers. It is hard to keep an audience in the “Bible Belt” when you demean half your audience daily. If listening becomes an irritant -most folks will just stop listening.
    He’s gone and no, I don’t miss him.
    Stay retired, Neal.

    One big risk for talk show hosts – overstaying your welcome. I find all of them risk being stale – especially when there is nothing they offer in terms of what to do about the sad state of affairs in the nation. Neal was/is no different than the others. He was stale and sour before he retired. Did something change? I doubt it – stay gone, Neal.

    NO. Nor will I miss any other pseudo-conservatives who follow him (e.g. Barry Young).

    • Art Stone says:

      I don’t think Boortz considers himself a Conservative host – he’s a libertarian working from a station owned by the daughter of the 1920 Democratic Presidential candidate And Woodrow Wilson sycophant James M Cox. Keep that in mind as you listen to Herman Cain.

      • TheChairman says:

        Yeah, I know he (Boortz) holds himself out as a libertarian, but he usually promoted his tax plan a bit like a RINO conservative.

        I always remind myself the first 5 letters of the word ‘Libertarian’ are the same as Liberal, most of them being ‘former’ democrats.

        Herman Cain is… entertaining, in the style of Walter Williamns.

        Of anyone, I dearly miss ‘The Black Avenger’ (Ken Hamblin).

        • Art Stone says:

          And the first three letters of Conservative is…

            • Art Stone says:

              A neo-conservative is a former liberal / progressive who discovered the error of their ways and became a Conservative later in life, for example Dennis Miller or David Horowitz. A person who has always been a conservative is not a Neocon (Rush Limbaugh is not a neocon, for example)

              With Rand Paul wanting to use the US military to bomb the hell out of Islam on the other side of the world, I have no idea what Libertarian stands for now if he is the leader.

            • TheChairman says:

              Indeed, but deeper down the Wikipedia page it points out that most of the Bush cabinet, McCain (and crew), and other war hawks are part of the neo-clan. aka ‘Project for the New American Century’

              That was my point about ‘NEO’ as the first 3 letters, the old guard has been usurped and the words Republican & conservative now mean neo-cons… as Liberal Democrat is to ‘social fascist’. (e.g. Mozilla forcing out Brendan Eich)

              I thought Rand Paul was with the ‘Tea Party’ but I don’t follow him… nobody seems to represent my politik now. Oddly, the anti-war crowd has simply vanished with the Obama militarism.

              FYI, the day after the election, Barry Young invited John McCain on his show (yet again), which sums up everything. Barry Young’s last show is today. TGIF!

        • Art Stone says:

          Some data to suggest your belief is wrong

          The Libertarian candidate got 3.8% of the vote in the US Senate race. Look at which counties had less than 3.8 – there is a very strong correlation that the more Republican the county, the more likely people voted for the libertarian candidate

          • TheChairman says:

            That could be interpreted as either LIBertarian or CONtrarian voting (or neither)… different result north of you (Virginia) and elsewhere.

            My opinion is based on observation from living out West (AZ, NV, CA) and northern Michigan.

            i.e. Are they ‘Reagan Democrats’ or disaffected Tea Party members? Need more stats/data.

            FWIW, I’m not a Republican (neo-con). I am a Nationalist… and long before Savage began invoking the phrase on his show.
