Air America Radio
    #2520898 - 04/03/04 08:32 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Did anyone get a chance to hear Air America Radio this week? I'm really interested in hearing "The O'Franken Factor" because I think Al Franken is great.

I should have checked the Air America Radio website before today. Seems as though you can listen to it with the Real Audio player. I'll have to check that out.

Anyone get to hear it?

I listented to the excerpts of "The O'Franken Factor" they played on the news and other talk shows, and man I have to tell you, it was horrendous. I know the talk shows were obviously trying to portray it in a funny light, but the major news networks seemed to be more supportive and they didn't make it look any better.


The worst thing I think he has going for him about the show is that woman on his show. She seems INCREDIBLY fucking stupid.

Franken - "So were going to be on 104.x in *****(I don't remember exactly where it was) and uh.."
Woman(Don't remember her name either)- "Al, what is that call sign in *****."
Franken - "Uh....OH, KLIP."
Woman - Begins laughing hysterically at this. It is one of those really forced laughs that has to make you wonder if she really has any concept of good humor or just likes to pick inappropriate times try and lighten the mood.

Caller or Interviewer (I'm not sure) - "So, what is your role here?"
Woman - "Weeelllllllll, Al's the humorist and I'm the journalist. AS IF YOU COULDN"T TELL!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! (Another totally fake laugh followed by a long silence.)

I don't remember the exchanges exactly so those aren't direct quotes, but it's close.

And the many of the parts I hear of Al speaking, he has that really broken, inconsistent speach while he tries to think of what to say that seems incompatible with radio.

I've been listening to Air America on the radio the past few days and I highly recommend it. Friday's O'Franken Factor interview with one of the Sept. 11th commissioners was quite interesting.

As for the bad exerpts from other radio/tv shows, what do you expect from 4 second soundbytes? Listen to the content before you make up your mind.

inland empire, california 1050am
los angeles 1580am
