Re: RIP HIlly Rose

The big Cheese may find this of interest. It explains how Hilly Rose went from being one of the hottest talk show hosts in the country to occasionally plying his trade on Coast To Coast AM.

His comments on the evolution of talk radio and why he got sick of doing it are must reading.

“I started doing talk shows at KCBS in San Francisco in 1963; that is 23 years of discussing the same subjects repeatedly.

“I must point out that 52 years later we are still endlessly discussing abortion, immigration. race, crime, war (Vietnam, now middle-east), immigrants taking jobs from citizens … the list goes on and on. Nothing is resolved, indeed in most cases the situation gets worse."

Thanks for the info.

The great Art Bell also started off with the usual political drivel and of course branched off into the UFO and paranormal world.
