Talk Radio That Doesn't Suck

I've taken my share of slings and arrows for my rants regarding talk hosts who, in my humble opinion suck eggs. In the interest of fairness, here's a rundown of some hosts I DO like (there aren't that many). Most of them are listenable on-line or via satellite; check the links for details:

Howard
In a class by himself...

Tom Leykis
Wild man...Hey Tom, blow me up!

Phil Hendrie
Utilizes "theatre of the mind" better than anyone...

John "Sly" Sylvester
Captures the essence of Upper-Midwest populism...

Jay Marvin
Liberal host who's better than anything on "Air America"...

Rollye James
Conspiracies and R&B...great late-night listening...

Paul Harris
Independent thinker and talented interviewer...

Jeff Katz
Talented up-and-comer...

Bill Cunningham
A conservative who knows how to entertain...

Neil Rogers
One of the most consistently funny guys on the radio...

The Regular Guys
Talk with a Rock 'n' Roll attitude out of Atlanta...


What do they have in common? They're all originals. They all know how to entertain. What else do they have in common? Nothing, which is kinda the point...

(BTW: Has anybody heard from Ed Tyll lately?) UPDATE: Found him. Thanks Jas...
