I used to listen because Art could make a show up on the spot if a guest blew it, and un screened open lines sometimes had amazing bits that have
Just IMHO, George brought the show down to the lowest common denominator, runs from a script so many things he doesn't even listen to before moving
on to the next question or comment, fails to explore or even catch extraordinary claims or statements, and spends so much time attempting to
multi-task that he seriously sounds drunk or high while pronouncing even common words. (Not claiming he is, but that his attention is so spread out he
can't speak and read and listen at the same time)
his "Radio Jock" affected voice sounds like a sales pitch, and I never get the feeling he is actually shooting from the hip, but trying to sell me
I still listen, and subscribe to streamlink, but don't listen to every show like I used to, as I used to worry about missing something amazing as it
I never listen to open lines, as they are no longer "open", as the callers have to follow format and behave.
Not all is lost though, I enjoy the new fast 1st 1/2 hour, Ian takes the comedic side and has interesting moments---as well as intelligence, and Knapp
has the hard hitting journalist style that is needed.
