1480 AM Update

I have had a lot of calls about shows on AM 1480 here in Eureka. For starters Crabs baseball is on the air. We had a season opener Saturday afternoon game that broke into Ring of Fire. That shouldn't happen again unless one of the tournaments in July or the end of August takes place at that time.

Dr. Dave of Computer Talk on Saturdays from 10 am to Noon has been a rewind for the past few weeks. There have been family health issues and even Dr. Dave has had some issues but Evil Steve assured me that Dr. Dave Mason was getting better and we would be getting some fresh shows starting next Saturday.

Finally, Alex Jones. The controversial and passionate talk show host started on AM 1480 with an hour on Sundays from 6 to 7 pm. Due to calls, mostly positive, I expanded the show to one hour a day following Coast to Coast AM from 2 to 3 am 7 days a week. Still more calls for more Alex Jones led me to cover up two more Saturday morning shows, Art of the Song and Chronicle of the Old West that also air in the Sunday 3 to 5 am time slot. Those shows also have other airings, Art of the Song, Saturdays 3 to 4 pm and Chronicle of the Old West Sunday's from 11 am to Noon. Now Alex Jones goes Friday nights or more correctly, Saturday mornings from 2 am to 5 am. Alex Jones now is on 10 hours a week. Consider that The Karel Show is only 10 hours a week. Leslie Marshal and Clark Howard only get half that much air time.

While Alex Jones doesn't fit the mostly progressive week day programming of 1480, he does fill a niche. The conservative stations didn't have the wherewithal to put him on and after all, they we do have a bigger mix with a better variety.
