Radio Monterey January 6 – 10

I hope you enjoyed the Morning Show last week.  We’re working on finalizing our new lineup in the wake of Karel’s decision to move to a 1-hour daily podcast.  The hope is to bring Norman Goldman on board for at least 2 hours each week day.  Meanwhile, look for more live and local talk each afternoon starting Monday 1/13.

    Get Goldman!
    I hope everyone enjoys Norman Goldman as much as I have these recent years.
    I could only catch his last hour on 960AM during my last leg over the hill, but I found him to be a well-spoken, intelligent radio-host who is not an Obama-bot.
    He congenially speaks with folk of any political stripe, because he’s trying to create atmosphere of fact-based learning.
    So, he’s much better at conversation then Randi Rhodes, and he rarely flips out at callers – but every once in a great while a bad actor or the virulently stupid will call in… the kind who’s positions flip about like a landed fish in the bottom of a boat… and it can be game-on.

    Also, as a lawyer, Nor-man offers insight few other liberal talkers can. And, yes, he can explode when a ‘bagger calls in and behaves as his normal self. This goes as well for adversaries who take part in email exchanges with him. It’s unexpurgated correspondence gold, ladies and gentlemen. Lastly, he hardly ever takes a day off. Commendable.
