There is an interesting discussion at ba.broadcast in Google Groups about the recent departure of Karel on the KGO schedule.  I read all of this second-hand since I do NOT care about nor do I listen to any Cumulus stations run by Dick..eys.

Here’s a link to the discussion:

There’s another discussion about Angie Coiro as well:

This is the new go-to place for me.  That other blogger guy is too inconsistent and bombastic to be believable.  No time to waste with that.  I like to read David Kaye’s comments about things.

Here’s a link to Angie’s Wikipedia Page:

Also, in the Karel discussion, they talk about hiring programmers.  Been through that as well.  It’s why I started to learn how to code and all of the framework that goes with it.  It really is the language of the future.  But, I can understand why some coders would not want to attempt to construct a simple database search with results showing in a scrollable text box.  Something as simple as that is auto-coded into programs now and it’s surprising how many don’t know the basics of the code behind.  One thing I do know: the more I learn, the more I know how much I don’t know.  But, it’s fun and it helps to understand what is viable when meeting with programmers about projects.  There are programmers out there who learn as they go – on your dime, of course.

As for Angie Coiro, I was unfamiliar with her, but I heard her on Talk910-AM when she filled in for Ed Baxter.  Why don’t they give her the 1:00-3:00pm slot?  That is a lot of dead air right now, with those two terrible hosts on-air there now.  But, surprisingly, I am happy listening to Sean Hannity on New York’s WOR-710.AM (http://www.wor710.com/main.html).  He takes calls and I get to hear the conversation we will all hear in the upcoming election.  Better to hear it now and prepare for it.  It’s going to be a dirty slugfest.  But it’s also interesting how all of these conservative hosts hate Jeb Bush.  He was even booed when Hannity mentioned his name.  Interesting…

That’s really all I have to say, today.

Remember to contact Ed at his website about what content you can provide:

Hope to hear your voice on Monday, Ed!
