Reverend Al Sharpton Wired for Sound by Rudy Giuliani

Geraldo Radio, Noam Radio, Rudy Radio, Bernie Radio!

Seriously, Geraldo Rivera runs an informative radio show....even when he is not there.

Today we had Noam, in for Geraldo--busy on his secret mission.......

Check out the video, Noam is not only pleasant on the radio but he is cute, too.

Noam went on today with Rudy Giuliani talking about the new mayor of New York De Blasio.......Rudy gave his take on things....how Mr. De Blasio is doing so far and how his style will pan out over a period of time.

Rudy thinks he is doing a pretty good job but would suggest he clean up his act about being late for the press conference.

Like Bernie Kerik--Mondays's with the Commish--Rudy is a frequent guest of the show but the cool thing is--agree or disagree--Rudy had the gift of explaining things in a conversational way.  He explained the mayor can get blamed for everything regardless of his ability to control it or not.  Rudy was blamed for record snow shortly after he was in office.

The New Yorkers take it personally when it comes to shoveling snow.

There are still complaints from certain areas of town where it was thought the snow was not removed in a fast enough way to please the residents of those streets.

As far as how he has done in office so far.......good and bad...he does not deserve a grade so far as it is just too soon.  Rudy said he has a completely  different philosophy regarding city government and business so he is a bit one-sided and maybe not the best one to give an opinion.  Having said that he gave us a lot of info about the new mayor--explaining how things work--I love that.

Talking about Al Sharpton possibly wearing a wire.......referring all inquires to the justice dept he said he was the United States attorney at the time and he cannot really talk about the claim of him wearing a wire, as reported recently in the news.  It happened in Rudy's district.

Rudy explained he had dealt with very tough criminals at the time and he was bound by the rules of the law....there was a contract out for his life for 800,000 dollars.  This was in 1984.

He is not saying he already knew about it but he did say he was very active in justice at the time.

Noam Laden suggested Rudy Giuliani and Al Sharpton seemed as if they hated each other at the time but the question remains is Giuliani the one who wired AL Sharpton.......it sure seems like it according to Noam.

Good interview, with former mayor Giuliani, Noam.

Good scoop, Noam, the caller said, Geraldo is going to be proud of you.

Geraldo is the friend of Reverend Al and has defended him many times as this blog has mentioned on many occasions the hatred rant of Bill O'Reilly against Al Sharpton.  It does not take long to listen to his show, Politics Nation, to find spiritual inspiration in his words.

There’s been a bit of a laugh deficit in Wichita since the Loony Bin, the city’s only comedy club, closed 13 months ago.
Now it’s back with a new location, name and mission. Live at 215 Performance Theater opened at 215 N. St. Francis last weekend.
“We want to do more than just comedy,” general manager Jeremy Woolever said. “It’ll enable us to put on any shows possible.”
Fans of stand-up comedy needn’t worry. That style of performance will still be featured most Thursdays through Saturdays. A soft opening this weekend showcases comedians Scott White and Sam Norton. The Chinaman, a performer who’s known for his musical impersonations, will headline next week’s grand opening.
Woolever is one of the holdovers from the club’s 14-year run on East 21st Street. A couple of nearby shootings and the landlord’s reluctance to spruce things up convinced the owners to find a new spot. Live at 215 is part of a chain of comedy clubs in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Little Rock that are owned by partners Jeff Jones and Larry Marks.
“We just figured it was time,” Woolever said. “We needed a different place and face.”
The new club was built in 1910 as the W.H. Gaiser Building, first used for carriages and then automobiles. Exposed brick walls and thick wooden ceiling beams add to the ambience. There’s about 4,500 square feet of space set aside for the club, with more next door planned for office use.
Another part of the appeal was location: It sits right on the border between the Old Town entertainment district and redeveloping downtown, with a 400-space parking lot across the street.
“A lot of good things are happening in this part of town,” Woolever said.
Live at 215 holds 135 seats in its theater, a few fewer than the old location, but also has a 86-seat bar up front where patrons can catch a drink before and after shows, as well as a kitchen capable of cranking out an expanded menu. Live at 215 plans to open for lunch and dinner in a couple of weeks.
Woolever expects the venue to be used for theatrical shows, concerts and private events. He said fans of stand-up comedy have been asking for months when the club would reopen.
That process took six months longer than expected as the owners took pains to make sure the building maintained its historical status. A plan to open last Friday fell through as the necessary inspections could not be completed in time. On Saturday, the doors finally opened despite the fact that all its beverage dispensers weren’t operational.
“We were pouring out Coke by the 2-liter bottles, pouring juice out of bottles,” Woolever said. “I think we did pretty darn well.”
Jones, part of the construction crew covered in dust who’d been laboring on the club the previous day, said he thinks all the work and waiting will pay off.
“We’re looking forward to another good 14 years.”

      I went down there this past weekend for the opening show, it's a nice place. But what in the hell were they thinking picking a building that small and that design. We were crammed in there like sardines. They must've had the same designer as the downtown arena. And the design and layout is terrible, it's a long narrow room with the stage at one end. Those are the two things that might make me not want to go back. Also there's one 6 foot wide hallway with a 36 or 40 inch door that leads into the theatre that is both used for patrons exiting the early show and those entering the later show, it's terrible. The bar area up front is really small and there's not nearly enough waiting space for those waiting to get into the late show and then everyone waiting is in way of those trying to get out of the earlier show. I got a 17-year-old that could design that venue better than that. It's almost like they decided we're going to be in old town regardless of whether we can find a suitable location or not.
