Bob Grant returns to the airways

Now you can hear more live, local talk about the issues on your New York Weekend! 77 WABC returns broadcast legend Bob Grant to his radio home on Sunday, September 13. You can listen and call in to Bob LIVE on Sundays from noon-2pm.

Bob graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in journalism. His career in radio began as a newsman at WBBM in Chicago, as a TV host at KNX in Los Angeles, and as sports director at KABC. In 1964 he inherited the talk show of Joe Pine at KABC, and quickly built a following.

Grant joined WABC Radio in 1984 where The Bob Grant Show consistently dominated the ratings in the highly competitive afternoon drive time slot. Grant, who is considered the pioneer of the confrontational talk radio format, was known for a number of catchphrases such as “Get off my phone!” and “Your influence counts…use it!” While Grant's political philosophy generally skews to the right, he has held independent views as well, such as being pro-choice and anti-Flag Desecration Amendment.

In 1996 Grant was released from 77 WABC when he was fired for a remark about the April 3, 1996 airplane crash involving Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. In 2002, industry magazine TALKERS magazine ranked Grant as the 16th greatest radio talk show host of all time. He was honored by the National Association of Radio Talk Show Hosts (NARTSH) in 1996 with The Freedom of Speech Award. In 2007 Bob Grant was nominated for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame.

One of the most memorable controversies surrounding Grant’s career came in 2008 when Radio and Records revoked a Lifetime Achievement Award for "past comments that contradict our values and the respect we have for all members of our community." The talk radio community rallied behind Grant, with Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Howard Stern, Mark Levin and others coming to Grant’s defense. Levin fumed, "I am disgusted with the mistreatment of Bob Grant. I am fed up with the censors, intimidators, and cowards in this business."

Grant later returned to the microphone in the 8-10 pm time slot on 77 WABC in August of 2007, where he remained until November 2008. Now – due to popular demand – Bob is back to talk the issues and take your calls on your New York Weekend. “I’m addicted” to being on the radio, Grant says, “I admit it”.

If you miss a show you hear it on demand here.

Goofy Al Gore gets asked an Inconvenient Question

The Power & Danger of Iconography

Barack Obama ran an unprecedented Presidential campaign - utilizing the power of design to help secure the seat of the President of the United States of America. However, his iconic emblem, the ever present "O", holds more power than even Obama knows. Bill Whittle points out the dangers of branding an ideology with an icon and how, perhaps, the powerful symbol will be used against the very man it built up. -

The Golden Years

The Golden Years!

Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillac's and cataracts, and hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
T hese are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak,
When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pains, confused brains, and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short, shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache,
When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
And then I don't feel so bad.

(Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over
four minutes and repeated encores.)

Please share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and humor with others who would
appreciate it.

If you wake up in the morning looking like this... Don't go to work. You've got pig flu

Good Tips from Andy Looney

I really don't listen to Andy Rooney, but this time he is making good sense!

"The secret to life is there is no secret. Whatever the goal, you can get there if you're willing to work."

What a brilliant idea! This is worth remembering or keeping.

Andy Rooney

Tips for Handling Telemarketers

(1) 'Hold On, Please...'

Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt.

Then when you eventually hear the phone company's 'beep-beep-beep' tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task.

(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?

This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone.

This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a 'real' sales person to call back and get someone at home.

What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialed the call and it kicks your number out of their system...

Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their system any longer!

(3) Junk Mail Help:

When you get 'ads' enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these 'ads' with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.

When you get those 'pre-approved' letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope.

Most of these come with post age-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 41 cents postage 'IF' and when they receive them back.

It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before the last increase and it is according to the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.

One of Andy Rooney's (60 minutes) ideas.

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza coupon to Citibank.. If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their blank application back! If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them.

You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 37 cents.

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they're paying for it...Twice!

Let's help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

If enough people follow these tips, it just might work.
