Rosie O'Donnell returns to the media today, but in quite a step down the media ladder from national TV prominence -- with a daily two-hour show on XM and Sirius satellite radio she'll host from her Nyack, New York home. “Rosie Radio is a radio show that is compelling, intriguing, unpredictable, and thought-provoking,” the radio service proclaims of the program . . ."
The good news about this is no visual. But "unpredictable?" - you can expect original (*snerk*) material like this:
“But the fact of the matter is, the world stood up in unison and gratitude and said, thank you, perhaps the beacon of light and hope that America has been for 200 years is once again lit. It was diminished criminally by the last administration.”
BDS still lives!
My friend, the irascible Fr. Moneypenny, and I both have satellite radio, and he has turned me on to a channel, to which I am now hooked. Channel 118 has Radio Classics - The Jack Benny Show, The Shadow, Suspense, etc. These are radio shows spanning the 30's to the 60's and during a commute to court in the Inland Empire, they work well to keep me amused. In fact, if I am going to court in Riverside, based on my usual departure time, I can count on an entire episode of Jack Webb in Dragnet.
It's also interesting to hear the attitude of the stars of that time, especially for the war bond commercials of WWII. James Cagney saying, "A lasting peace is a strong peace" did my sou;l well.
Now, that's entertainment!
