The shop radio is now on NPR all week. I'm an hour in, and already want to shoot myself in the face.

Must've been a serious bet to justify putting up that kinda price...

No doubt you'd rather be listening to Rush Limbaugh, the Big Fat Idiot.

Anyone betting against Trump going forth is going to be experiencing similar outcomes.

If by Limbaugh you mean Fox Sports radio, yes.

The condescending tone and stupid overuse of haughty words is almost as bad as the content.

Try to pick up the smarmy unctious tone all of the announcers and hosts use and turn it on your coworkers.

Is a bigger, louder radio to drown out that one against the rules?

Pretty much the only thing worth listening to on NPR is Echoes, if they even still have that show.

Wait till Diane Reem comes on. I swear, you'll be expecting her to expire with every breath she takes. After two minutes, you'll be wishing she does.

Wait till you get to John Hockenberry's show. That guy is a flaming douchenozzle of faggotry. I fucking hate that guy, not that I don't hate everyone on NPR but that guy really grinds my gears. I swear he has a rape whistle.

But she actually has some really insightful comments and questions. It took me a while to get used to the pacing of her questions, but now I see them as very deliberately-worded.

She's retiring soon, though, if her regular absences from her show indicates anything. She's doing book tours and taking vacations regularly.

they aren't her questions.  There are producers and writers.  She has a radio show and she physically can't talk.

I can't stand either.  The only talk radio I can tolerate is sports talk.
Link Posted: 2/22/2016 12:13:06 PM EDT
I am forced to listen to that new country crap. Auto tuned garbage all day long. It is a "hits" station also. One day I noted the number of times they played each song, and was able to correctly identify the current top 10. I am pretty certain I could name the next weeks #1 with a bit of effort.
Link Posted: 2/22/2016 12:23:13 PM EDT
NPR is left but has some good stuff.  Haven't listened in a while but may try it out again.  One segment was were people call in asking questions on where to find or identify things, someone else responds (kinda like here).  Some segments are just stories (kinda like here), http://www.radiolab.org/story/110206-finding-emilie/  Life takes turns, don't be afraid of them, unless it looks like Hitlery is screeching from the rafters.

It's really not as scary as one might think.

If you think that those questions are all her producers and writers, you're sorely mistaken. You don't get to a position like hers without a lot of hard work, and a far-beyond average understanding of most topics.

I can understand not liking listening to her because of her voice, but don't discount her mental capabilities because of it. After all, Stephen Hawking is still a well-respected physicist, so why can't Diane Rehm be a capable journalist?

Find an NPR station that plays classical not talk radio. Still counts as NPR.

NPR listeners think NPR's stance is dead center, unbiased and neutral.  Like most liberal media sources, NPR is stoking the BLM fires and milking it for all the $$ they can.

How old is the shop radio?
The IF used to be 10.7 MHz, so, if you tuned another radio + or - from radio ones station, it would kill the reception, used to drive people crazy doing that. (inn my shop at work with headphones on me)
They'd get up, hit the radio, I'd let play for a minute, repeat....They'd change stations, I would too!
My small radio had a 50' range, good, Evil, fun!
