When WBAI makes you cringe: An Armistice Day message
Click on below image to enlarge it
In case you don't listen to WBAI between 7 and 8 am, they have given the hour over to Haskins and Hennelly. The former is our old go-with-the-flo-gee-gosh lightweight, the latter is a union rep basking in his newfound free airtime. Together, they are just plain awful. I was listening this morning when Hennelly delivered his knee-jerk "thank you for your service" to Haskins, whose time in the military was apparently served well out of harm's way. The exchange—with "god" thrown in there, somewhere—was a regrettable reflection of what has happened to the mindset that once created and maintained a great station. If I wore a hat, it would be off for former LSB Chair Mitchel, whose remarks are in the old Pacifica spirit.
