Sports talk ??? Why ? Isn't there enough (too much ) of this banter on other stations already? Whe I hear it on, I tune to almost anything else !

I cannot say i am a fan of "sports talk." There is already a station on FM and lots of them on AM. I'd rather this show stick to culture, arts and politics.

I have been in anti-fur protests with Mr. La Russa. He is a fabulous manager and a great animal rights activist: a really good human being.
