Bloggin' on WGPA 1100 AM without Ron Angle

For the second time this week, I'm guest hosting Ron Angle's WGPA 1100 AM's talk show. Northampton County's open space initiative and Bethlehem's casino license are hot topics right now, but I suspect listeners will be surprised Thursday to learn that Angle has been given his walking papers by Grinchy Timmer. And I intend to talk about it.

You, too, can call in with your insults on Thursday between 8 and 10AM. Who knows? Grouchy Joe Timmer might want to hire you as Angle's replacement! You can livestream, and your calls are welcome at 610-866-8074. You can also post your comments here and I'll read them on the air. I'm told I'll have a mystery caller, and it's not Ron Angle.

Update: The comments from Tuesday's show are on this post. Somehow, I deleted Tuesday's post when preparing this one, but was able to save your comments. Feel free to add as you wish.

Oh my God, they should rename "at issue" to "you will need a tissue."
with the sensitive, compassionate, Bernie O'Hare!
Or how about, "The Big Scnozz zone?!" LOLOLOLOL!

Your hosting? Hopefully for rating sake you have a conservative alter ego. You can be the first to call me if your bombing.

Any holding of hands and beautiful humming today,to calm the beasts.

Bernie O'Hare said...

DemFly, Don't hate me 'cause you can't be me.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Doctor Rick, What, me worry? As long as we don't talk about Bush, Iraq, Rumsfeld, Iran, Pelosi, Rendell, Santorum, health care, the economy or medicaire, I should hit it off with Ron's listeners.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Lobster, If that goofy nut calls in tomorrow, I'm jumping right off Timmer Towers. I'd like to copme back as myself. I always got along swell with me.

Bernie:

You mentioned other dates when you'll be on air (the 21st and 28th) instead of Osama Bin Angle.

(Don't laugh . . . his polling numbers are 2-1 negative, by far the worst of any elected official in the state. His 15 minutes of "fame" is about to end very soon. Maybe he can go back to shoplifting as a career.)

I'm still trying to make those days work so I can join you for a lively and intellectually honest discussion about politics in the Lehigh Valley.

Despite what "the establishment" thinks, you have your finger on the pulse of politics in the Valley. Sometimes you are kind to a fault as far as letting so-called "insiders" try to spin you. But, I understand that you truly believe that all bloggers' opinions should be treated equally. That makes you a better man than I am.

Hope to join you on air. It will be a blast, because I guarantee you that ONE of us will be written up in the Morning Call the day after!

Semper fido!
Bernie

It's 2:30AM and I just got home from work but I'm going to set my clock in hopes of actually getting my tail out of bed and catching your act. If your radio gig is half as entertaining and informative as reading this site it will be well worth the effort.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Bernie Takes no prisoners, It would be an honor to have you on the air. I'll be on the 21st, 26th, 27th & 29th. Any of those dates are good for me except the first hour of the 26th, when blogger Julian Stoltz is making his debut on his birthday.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Gort, Too bad you don't live a little closer. It would be a blast to have you on the air. But once Bernie K comes on, WGPA will probably be shut down.

You are on the air on Monday the 25th?

Why not use the extra money to build an extra elevator or gold plated bathroom for the poor judges?

The Cupola would be a great place to hold a judge hostage. A little waterboarding from the many roof leaks might help their attitude.

So did you kidnap Angle and have him shipped to a deserted island somewhere?

Newspapers are afraid of retirement board meetings. Why, because then they have to face their own coming retirement as a part of media.

Thanks for all the comments. I read as many as I could on the air. Republican soul? Thans a lot, Mad Batter. I'll break your other leg.

I think Ron should be kept on the air at all costs. where else can you hear such stupidity passed off as intelligent discourse.

Bernie:

How much of the BethWorks proposal do you actually expect to see happen. I don't know about you but I am very concerned about the fact that this grand plan is little more than a grand promise.

Your thoughts?

Thanks for all the comments during the first hour. Roger nearly killed the show. I;m dying out there today.

Jolly Joe: "I don't take orders from You, Mang. Down here I'm the

Goddi/Gotti: "Your're gonna fry, Joe."

Jolly Joe: "I will live forever--I will junk Angle or anyone else. I ain't never gonna die---so I don't need You---I never even believed in You, Mang."

Isn't it ironic that that many former Steel Workers support the preservation of the history of their work by a non-union casino operation that will exploit the service labor of the next generation of Lehigh Valley workers for low wages with menial benefits.

It seems to me that the union workers of the steel industry are out of touch with the true purpose their union was formed. Than again, this is nothing new.

Workers of the world unite!

Bernie O'Hare said...

For some reason, comments were blockerd by blogger during the seond hour. The only thing I can figure is that blogger.com thought it was a spam attack. I'll look into it. I like open exchange.
