Hey, that is really cool. I can't wait to check this guy's show out! You know, I listen to NPR all night when I'm working and this guy sounds interesting enough to fill up the first three hours of my shift. No offense to 'As it Happens' and 'marketplace', but I tend to be more interested by actual commentary. If only my MP3 player could play AM instead of only FM stations. Oh well, guess I'll just have to break out the old radio. . .

Reggie, I remain a big NPR fan, too, but yes, you need to check out Big Eddie. He gets great, thoughtful callers from across the country, not all of whom agree with him. Imagine that!

His show is also available via podcast for about $6 a month. Details on the website.

Heh. It always looks like I'm some sort of insomniac up all late and stuff, but really I just work until midnight on weeknights and don't get off of work until 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. So I get home from work and peruse the blogs or read some before going to bed.

Anyway, I couldn't get the darn am station to tune in tonight. I tried everything- Tinfoil wrapped around the antenna. . .adjusting the antenna . . . more tinfoil--everything! I guess that 630 station just doesn't come in very well.

At least I'll have a little time to get it figured out over the weekend.

Reggie, thanks for trying. I am up on the Bench and 630 AM usually comes in fine, but I've noticed that reception gets really horrible when I am driving near major power lines, like along Overland and Franklin in Boise.

Another alternative, if it jibes with your work/class/sleep schedule, would be to try and catch the show online, either on KFXD which has a live stream on its website, or via any of the other stations that carry it, some of them earlier in the day. I think all the stations listed here have online streams:


Good luck!
