Rush Returns to Radio Today.


There was so much care and concern posted for Rush Limbaugh under the article announcing that he'd gone to a Hawaiian hospital to have chest pains investigated. It seemed obvious I should post how to listen, so folks who are so interested could tune him in for themselves.

*You can hear his program live at 11a.m. local time on 980AM KMBZ (KC-MO). His is a three-hour program. KMBZ also repeats Rush's program during the night, like at 1a.m.

*If you have a good receiver or are up north, KFEQ (St. Joseph) 680AM runs his program on a delay beginning at 2p.m.

*on the web www.rushlimbaugh.com is a very informative site on all things Limbaugh. You can sign up to hear his program via the web, or support an overseas service person's subscription to the web broadcast. "Stack of stuff" has lots of great reading.

I was so happy that in all those 120+ posts that nobody posted things falsely attributed to Rush, actual lies, and some of his statements taken out of context. Just as some treated Sarah Palin with such respect, and did not post a virulent lie about her son not really being her son...but I digress.

The tolerant, prejudice-free, ever forgiving, liberals who always welcome people who publicly admit their adictions and get rehabbed. They were so forgiving of Ted Kennedy whose addiction actually killed somebody, so I was glad such care was extended to Rush in all those comments. I am also glad that the tolerant liberals of Lawrence join me in celebrating Rush's clean bill of health; his heart is apparently okay.

So, today you can tune him in. For many who sound off about him, it'll be your first time too.

here's the Rush link: www.rushlimbaugh.com since it won't work up there.

KMBZ is online, and KFEQ is not, as far as I can tell.

22-million listeners each week.

Over 600 radio stations.

glad to hear Rush is OK health-wise. not so glad about his return to radio. he lies like a dog. I used to listen to him while traveling to get a laugh or three.

so Rush went to the hospital in a foreign country? wonder what kind of health care he received. must've been OK.

Rush said the health care in Hawaii was great. That's after they adopted similar reforms to the proposed Federal reforms and their unionized nurses. Apparently, Plush Limbaugh now supports health care reform!

"It seemed obvious I should post how to listen, so folks who are so interested could tune him in for themselves."

As if it were possible to escape the omnipresent voice of this right wing/corporate/military propagandist. All across the fruited plain his flavor of right wing indoctrination is bleated across the AM dial (and our public airwave, by the way) as yet another generation is lost to the effort to keep us kinder, gentler and at their feet.

Really? Are they touring again? I doubt I'll see them, I just haven't really followed them since "Moving Pictures". Nothing like an 8-track stereophonic "Tom Sawyer" in my Merlin van.

Yea, I bet Marion dated Pocahontas too. He took her at the Who concert at South, with David Irving, whom he bought one of his cars from, in exchange for a machine gun and a dog. He luckily didn't need to whip out his undercover ID that night, but Larry Chalmers called him to say it was OK with him. He has since sold them all articles of incorporation and a paypal account, and it wasn't SPAM. They all shipped their checks to some dude named Sven. Anyone not believe any of this they are all ad hominem liers. All of them.

About sums it up.

damn, i always thought it was a cheese.

Boston_Corbett I don't see what is so difficult to believe about Marrion's statement that he was the second or third caller on Rush's first radio show. Mel, I agree with you and I think they should have a website where the viewers can name who they want to see and the one who gets the most votes gets hired for the gig.
