On thursday 10-28 Thom was in Chicago and the fill in host was not really talking about the election so I switched to Beck. After listening to his hate filled, be very scared- rant I decided that being part of any "commercial" talk radio audience was a big waste of my time. 39 minutes an hour of broken up segments, 21 minutes of commercials. Also after stewart's comments about cable news why waste even more time with all that hate. It has only been a few days but I'm a lot less worried and much happier. Life goes on away from that endless corporate sponsored hate filled small segment of our country that most Americans don't really pay attention to it anyway. I'm back into the main stream.

I do listen to kpfk (kpfk.org) from Los Angeles which is not commercial and has many excellent hosts such as Ian Master and Blase Bonpane.

You mean Pacifica radio, correct? My old car never got that one with its lousy radio, but since I got a new ar in February, I discovered it. I listen to it as much as Ktalk now, and Pacifica radio really is an epicenter of progressive thought, more so than Ktalk. I like to listen to Ian Masters and Harrison, among others on KPFK. I wish every place had a station such as that, but of course, it is viewer supported (which is probably why it can be so progressive) and always hurting for money.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
