KOGO 600's Program Director Cliff Albert Responds to Accusation of Frequent Call for Vigilante Justice by Host
Neat name you have by the way.
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. You

listening to us when you do.
In the radio talk show business, the goal is to stand out from
the dozens and dozens of choices that people have on how to spend their time. So
it is natural for a talk show host like Chip, or Rush, or LaDona or Roger to be
rather demonstrative with the words they use and the approach they
take. I guess it's like a debate team in high school or a lawyer
presenting closing arguments in a trial. You don't succeed by just calmly
reciting a bunch of facts and statements. You have to have a passion and
express emotion and be noticed and remembered.
Talk show hosts

As for my "usual speils on morality", they are designed

issues at times.
Again, thanks for listening to KOGO when you do.
