As usual it's not broke,let's fix it.

Obviously Guesty111 and

Obviously Guesty111 and GuestTroller never listened.

Chad may have been nice

Chad may have been nice enough but he was from Americans for Prosperity, which is a Koch Brothers backed "non profit" that advocates for their political policies. There was such deep bias in his views. Can't say less of that on the air is a huge loss for society.

Best wishes

Chad always conducted himself with dignity. He exuded a keen intelligence coupled with professional integrity, interested more in ideas than personalities. Thank you Chad. The chatterati will miss you.

Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it."

I guess hate isn't selling

I guess hate isn't selling well now-a-days?? Beat it and stay out I say. Anything will be better than their daily anti-American rants. Nothing but typical "part of the problem not part of the solution" lowbrows. - Buh bye

Wrong answer..

Hate is selling off the shelves, just look who is sitting in the White House. The most divisive president in US history. He hates American more than the commies. But now if you are under the ignorant assumption that conservative talk doesn't sell, well just take a gander at Fox news...The NUMBER ONE rated news in America. Buh bye

Hooray! One less hate-radio

Hooray! One less hate-radio outlet.

Obviously you should have

Obviously you should have used a Q-Tip to clean all of the wax out
of your ears. Yes, Chad made no bones about being a conservative,
but he was always very respectful of his guests. That's why people
from both sides of the aisle were on his show. This being his last
day on the air, it was nice to hear his listeners and past guests,
democrats and republicans call in and than him for the non-hostile
venue he provided. Get you facts straight before you make a complete
idiot of yourself.


Why do you hate radio?

Leroy, I don't hate radio,

Leroy, I don't hate radio, just rightwing nincompoop talk radio.

The intelligent voice of the

The intelligent voice of the tolerant progressive liberal?

What a hateful thing to say

What a hateful thing to say for someone who's so "anti-hate".
