No. Michael Savage just has a horrible voice. His political views just happen to be just to the right of insane in addition to that.

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

Pretty much any FM morning show, especially any variation of Monsters/Crazy Guys/Morning Gang/whatever you want to call them. Also any and all "Bubba and Elroy" type shows. Since I listen to sat radio and the ole iPod, I rarely have to ever listen to that stuff.

Other things that would make me run screaming...

All callers that are on cellphones that keep breaking up. If I were a host, there'd be a zero tolerance policy with those kind of calls. You start to break up, you're cut off, no 10-20 seconds wasted on your static.

I agreee. I sounds like she's in the midst of some sort of massive stroke and/or seizure. Every day.
I cut her some slack because she's got a vocal disorder called spasmodic dysphonia; she had to quit broadcasting completley for a while and can only do it now with frequent therapy treatments (Botox in the vocal cords, I believe).

Jo Whiley, puts all her pauses in the ... wrong places.

Sara Cox, even when she's sober she's drunk.

No. Michael Savage is just an asshole who blathers on about his own importance and insults his own listeners. His importance, by the way, is completely made up by Michael Savage. Liberal/conservative has little to do with it.

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

I'm actually curious if there are any pre-1994 recordings of her available on-line, so I can hear what she sounded like originally. I found a couple of interesting profiles that talk about her disorder, but not much else so far. Her show's page only goes back to when she started doing it again in '99.

Her voice has improved tremendously in the last few years, though, as she's tried new therapies and treatments.

The Diamondbacks announcers. They mispronounce names.
The Pirates announcers. All around boring. Don't blame them though.

I'm fairly conservative and even *I* think all those talk radio types are total s. Can't stand any of them. Especially Savage. He really lives up to his last name. And Jerry Doyle's relevance ended when B5 did.

Limbaugh wore out what little welcome he had, years ago, so I'm not too concerned about what that pompous windbag might still have to say.
