any "Radio Voices" you can't stand to listen to?

for me it's NPR's Daniel Schorr. sure, he's had a long and respected career, but time hasn't been good to his voice. he sounds like an old, tired, wheezy Droopy the Dog and I have to turn the radio off when he comes on

I also can't stand listening to people who have excessive mouth noise . . . like I can hear their tongue and cheeks moving around like somebody is stirring a bowl of jello . . . just plain icky!

ESPN's Freddie Coleman and Amy Lawrence are my choices. Can't stand them at all.

John Sterling, and it's not because he's the Yankees broadcaster. I can't stand his catch phrases and the way he says them. I would hate it if he were my team's broadcaster. I can almost imagine him saying something like this:

"It's an a-bomb... from Al-Qaeda! Jihadists win! Thhhhhheeeee Jihadists win!"

Supposedly even the Yankees fans can't stand him.

When I lived with my father, he liked to listen to The Diane Rehm Show on NPR, and I simply couldn't stand to be in the room when he did. I've heard people described as having "a face for radio," but Rehm has a voice for print. An unbearable, creaking whine of a voice -- ughh.

Jeremy Vine on Radio 2. Everything sounds like a confrontation with him. I loathe listening to him.

I agreee. I sounds like she's in the midst of some sort of massive stroke and/or seizure. Every day.

Michael Savage. Vile man with a wretched voice. Jerry Doyle of B5 fame is also a douchebag.

I can confirm.

I am a Yankees fan and I can't stand him.

The only one I hate more is his current partner Suzyn (Y! Y!! Seriously!) Waldman. Gravel-voiced shrew...

Matt Pinfield

While his knowledge of music is amazing, his voice after a while becomes irritating.
