Title: RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS CANCER!
Post by: Norm on February 03, 2020, 01:57:21 PM
Diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, the multi-millionaire, cigar chomping, liberal hating icon of the RIGHT is in for the fight of his life.

And is George Senda breaking with the news?  NOPE!  He's begging for money to go to Alien Con instead! 

Pathetic!

Yes, but one can still bring on the mouth cancer with a cigar. You don't inhale chew either but..

Actually, I've noticed that he was having difficulty with his vocabulary over the last 2-3 weeks.  I had been meaning to tweet my thoughts that he was showing signs of Alzheimer's as vocabulary slippage is usually an early sign.  Most doctors check lungs and the bladder pretty regularly for long-time former smokers.

He made it to 70. Honestly, way late on the diagnosis. Slim odds, real slim odds.

Pipe smoking is worst..  Inhalation and the smoke comes in at a higher pressure...  Back of the throat tumors develop.

Rush was a cigarette smoker "formerly nicotine-stained fingers..."

Yeah, no one wants to have someone suffer.  George asked for prayers but did not provide supporting statements, so maybe the company made him ask for prayers or maybe he's afraid iHeart could tank without Rush?

According to Forbes, in 2008, Rush donated 13 percent of his income to his favorite charity, which he sponsors.  That's great, but if a person is that rich, 13 percent is, hmmm, well, kind of like ordinary tithing.  He has helped 6 widows and their children, some of whom appear to be minorities, even though he is reputed to say mean things about minorities.  And he contributed money to help stop a few diseases.  I appreciate that.

Rush Limbaugh, I believe in his last show, had mentioned that breathing was difficult. Today the guest host, Todd Hermanson, mentioned all the staff people's names today. To me, it sounds like they might be at the end of the road. Last night Bill Cunningham even went a little further than his typical "pray for Rush" comments.

I think I even saw or heard something about "pray for remission."

If the show ends, I truly don't know how much radio I would listen to. Even during non-Rush hours, my radio listening is influenced by Rush.

Sean Hannity is an asshole, the guys on Red Eye Radio are idiots... I guess Mark Levin would be the only guy I could give credence to.

I don't think we are going to hear much more from Rush, I've a feeling he's trying to keep it together as best he can dealing with all the treatments for cancer. 

I remember Rush when he was on KFBK in Sacramento back in 1989. He hadn't gone national yet and did a remote show from a appliance warehouse joint in Rancho Cordova. There were about 50 people who showed up to see Rush as he stood on a stack of pallets with his microphone. Jesse, the original MayTag repairman, a former vaudeville comic was there in his MayTag uniform. I didn't take my camera because at that time Rush was pretty much unknown nationwide. Shortly thereafter he was offered a nationwide deal and moved to New York. Still he kept his usual joke about the people in Rio Linda. I still think there is a tour bus that drives through Rio Linda and points out all the cars on blocks and chickens wandering around in the streets.

Rush was nationally syndicated in August, 1988. The only reason I know this is because my work phone number was 282-2882 and Houston hadn’t instituted 10 digit dialing yet. When Rush chose 800-282-2882 as his toll free number I had to just forward my phone to voicemail when his show was on air.

Rush and Mark Levin really do stand out.  I only listen to the radio when driving, so I've heard little of Rush and a bit more of Levin over the years.  There have been guest hosts I like, Dan Bongino comes to mind.

Sean Hannity is a stupid person.  Like Noory he doesn't let his guests or callers finish their points, and interrupts them with his endless repetitive slogans.  Ugh.  And he lets too many Libs on - it's not as if they don't have plenty of platforms elsewhere.  And those platforms never have Conservatives on, so it's not reciprocated.

The two things I didn't like about Rush were his complete disregard for the environment, and his lack of understanding of how the economy works (although he usually ended up with the right policies after mis-explaining things).

Bruce Williams, the late "Money Talk" show host, recalled a story when he was invited to come in and speak with Rush. Williams said that Rush was an entitled brat or something like that. 

I think it's in this video, not sure. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, Bruce Williams was an important part of my radio listening. When my bandmates were buying cars and crap, I bought a place to live. 30 years later, I still have my equity; they don't.

Mark Stine (or Stein), the accented illegal alien Rush guest host seems to be best fit to replace Rush. I don't see too many stations keeping the show though. His ratings are so good that stations that don't agree with his politics even carried him. Once they get the opportunity to get out of that contract, you can sure bet on them going even further left.

I can handle Stein for a short period but a daily dose might be difficult. Hannity doesn't know when to shut up and let his guests speak, he also needs to cut 30 minutes from his TV show, it would be an improvement. If Tucker left Fox right now Greg Gutfeld might be able to keep the network afloat but they would have to hire back O'Reilly and he wouldn't be cheap.

I stand corrected, it must have been 1987 or early 1988 when he was still at KFBK in Sacramento. I just remember he was always poking fun at Mikhail Gorbachev's forehead skin discoloration and Rio Linda.

I thought about posting this a few times; one of the guest hosts used to be an extended acquaintance of mine, Brett Winterble. Unfortunately, he never bothered to tell me that he worked for Rush. Maybe because I always talked to his wife about music and that dominated the conversation. He had a talk show here in San Diego that I was well aware of and in our circles there were a couple of other hosts with kids who participated in the same stuff and all...

Mark Levin would need to change his screaming to "enthusiastic dialog" if he were to be given the Rush slot.

I'm a newer listener to Levin...  Still a lot to be bugged by.

Then, he complains too many of his stations time-shift his program to the evening...  Mr. Producer.  In a much easier way to digest, he's caught in some of the same patterns like Hannity is.

Maybe Hannity will get pissed if he's leap-frogged to Rush's time slot like Letterman was over the Tonight Show.  Hannity will kill the audience as his aggressiveness isn't palatable to a larger audience.  He wasn't even carried after Rush on the same station because the station with the right of first refusal played LOCAL programming over him until Premier packaged them together.

Tucker Carlson has the tone but he relies on writers heavily. Dinesh D'Souza would be intellectually strong enough although 15 hours a week might be too much.

I probably should not admit it... After Rush stopped giving away the phones, I asked Bo Snerdly privately if he had any left that they needed to clear out in some box stuck in the corner of a room. Some of my family was converting over to iPhone and I thought it was best to ask for freebies before buying anything...

Even with all of the conservative support team he encouraged, he was still an Apple fan.

This was kind of a given, but the Rush Limbaugh radio show is in a coma and on its death bed.

Instead of being topical and up-to-date, it is "Rush's greatest hits." Sadly that's not why he was so great. It was because he had an incredible view of what was topical.

It would be the equivalent of replaying Art Bell seven nights a week. No, it would be worse because Art Bell didn't necessarily have timely topical things going on.

I guess they want to kill the time slot. Instead of keeping it dynamic and vital, they're going ruin it for any successors.

They had a year to prepare for this and it seems like they have no clue or they're so in love with Rush that they think 10-year-old audio is going to carry a show that people tuned in for today's topics.

RIP The Rush Limbaugh Show.

They could have done that for a few days, then gone with a series of guest hosts doing current issues.

I think the hosts are each so unique that no one is going to take over their show when they leave.  It's not possible for ''The Rush Limbaugh Show'' to continue.  There are plenty of local and national hosts - but no one like Rush - so just choose a show to fill the time slot, and keep fiddling with it until one of them generates ratings.

Well, it'll be very curious how the advertising dollars will shrink if they keep running it into the ground. All of the guest hosts could do a good show. Brent Winterble actually had a good show here in Southern California and, he never told me, he had worked for Rush. If I knew that, I would have asked for an autographed picture!

Somebody has made a decision that it is better to live in the past.

I loved Rush's delivery he was enjoyable to listen to, entertaining as hell, but with all of his guest hosts I listened too.  I want to know what's going on. I want to hear how the politicians are trying to screw us.

Two weeks of the deification of Rush Limbaugh during his show slot... Stop for fuck's sake; what's happening today? These hosts are capable of bringing today's news to the table and they're just sitting there talking about the past.

They keep saying that they will keep the show going until everybody has had their chance to say goodbye. I have a feeling with that is code for is they will keep doing this until the ratings drop and they lose advertising money. If this was Rush Limbaugh's wish, I think his legacy will be tainted. Kind of like what Art Bell did by picking Heather Wade.

Really disappointed. I actually switched to Armstrong and Getty. I tried to tune in today and Brent is on again talking about the deification of Rush. Yes, I believe that he is the only reason the Republicans even have a fucking party anyway.

Using one of his favorite terms... Rush has assumed room temperature.

He is just a dead guy who made himself a multimillionaire many times over by targeting immigrants, women who use birth control, the preteen daughters of politicians, the Obamas, rape survivors, environmentalists, gay people, Asians, Latinos, Black people, and feminists.

He also gave millions of dollars to great charitable causes in an anonymous fashion. Why spoil the Democrat narrative, though, am I right?

I was once with a group of broadcasters back in the 90s and Rush came up.  One of them said, “Oh, his show is filled with hate.”
I said, “So, you monitor his show to learn that?”
“I’ve never listened to his show in my life.”

I think that’ very typical.

I know and care nothing of his politics but I do know he was a cunt of a human.
He gave millions to charity thinking it would wash off the damn spot.
It did not.
He remained a cunt.

Brent Winterble and the others deserve exposure, but it's like Kenny Jones replacing Keith Moon. Serviceable, not spectacular. Possibly because they're still playing the same old songs... Noory vs. Bell but not as bad. Noory turned suckage into an "art."

They say they are picking up new stations... Yeah, how many have they lost? On top of that, the cost to carry the show must have gone down.

I tune in a couple times a week, just to see if anything has changed.  Nope, just the same routine of vanilla fill-ins, although no Mark Steyn, so far.  Not sure what’s up with that, whether he’s washed his hands of the situation, he’s in negotiations to take over permanently and it’s not advisable for him to be a host at this time, or he just has better things to do.

I do know I don’t regularly listen, anymore.  I can’t believe what they’re currently doing is sustainable for the long term.  Of all the regular crop of past fill-in hosts, Steyn is the only one I’d listen to on a regular basis.  The others are just too “blah,” for me.  I’m guessing PremRad is going to “cheap-out” again and eventually go with some inexpensive mediocre host, just like they did with C2C.  Losing audience and dollars seem to be what they do best.

Steyn is good once or twice a week. Everyday is tough. Finding someone with the wit and edge and pedigree to not gaf about what they say is tough. Heck even Laura Ingram could do a day or 2.

Sadly, the final Rush Limbaugh Show ever is a joke.  Sure, the tributes and playing of all recordings has been worn down with that horrible game plan executed after his death.

The final show today is an open lines instead of really wrapping up his legacy.

I am starting to think that maybe Rush Limbaugh was pulling his best Art Bell impersonation.

Actually, that's what I was expecting. To hear that. Maybe they still will, 32 minutes until the closing music.

How they handle this was a complete shit show though. They did not have themselves prepared or the plan was really lame. I also feel that his widow might have been self-aggrandizing herself and trying to capitalize for the attention.

Today was the last show presented under The Rush Limbaugh Show title. They milked it as much as they could. So, Monday, the Buck Sexton variety show will be in its place.

It was sad, obviously they had time to prepare for the show's direction after his death and it really appeared that they did not.  Either that or they were so enamored with themselves that they thought they could carry on, really pathetic.

I have to think that this is going to do to his legacy on a much larger scale than they were prepared to accept. When an industry is based around one man's personality, and that personality dies, they're toast. I do believe they could have salvaged it if they handled the last three plus months differently.

I think the term clusterfuck might be too kind for what happened to the show.

I am tempted to think that his widow was a big part of the mess who knows, maybe they propped her up into the spotlight. I doubt it. She sounded like a golddigger trying to hold on to the cash and her dead husband's pockets...

Well, I guess it's time to move on in life. I need to adjust my radio listening habits.

Ouch. So what have they been doing all these months--running re-runs? When he was alive, Rush would sometimes re-run shows, but not more than a few weeks old. I stopped listening in June 2020. I had also heard that Dan Bongino was taking over. So I'm a little confused. I've also never heard anybody say anything negative about Katherine before. I got the sense that despite the 26 year age difference, he'd finally gotten it right on  the fourth try.

They had B and C-level guest hosts (no Mark Steyn) being referred to as "guides."

The first few weeks were awful, lots and lots of audio clips and the widow making appearances. You would have thought that Jesus died.  When, I think, the April ratings book came out, the show started to take on more current topics and replaying bits of Rush talking about related things. 

The great thing about Rush Limbaugh was that, everyday, he spoke with an educated perspective on the day's topics. They completely abandoned that when they were playing all those old clips.

No Mark Steyn was the first red flag for me.  Rush’s wife would have been well advised to stay in the background.  She doesn’t have much talent for talk radio and was appearing way too often.  Now we’re “blessed” with a creation from the PremRat suits.  We’ve seen how well that usually works out.  They don’t seem to get that it’s tremendous talent that produces tremendous talk radio.  Like most bean counters, they just look at the numbers and are risk adverse.  Welcome to Noory Land.

Agreed. Since he was skilled at managing callers and being able to draw out their arguments, he would have been a solid choice, notwithstanding his ability to actually perform.

Funny, he's been doing some of the live read ads for the old show. There is something with his voice though, it's kind of a hollow nasal thing. I would think it possibly could be a microphone placement issue, but it could just be his voice.

James was very kind in all of my correspondence with him.

How many radio shows keep people around that long? Brent Winterble used to work for Rush as well. Radio is a highly transitory thing. Especially with the egos of people thinking they're better and try to go off on their own, people who perform well and get headhunted by other shows or production companies...

That's what George and Tommy used to think

The below post has been bothering me. I must apologize to my fellow Ellgabbers, the holy spirit, Jesus and god.

No, Falkie's mother would block that move from heaven in a heartbeat. At least that's what he would tell us

I must correct myself: There there's no way in hell that a woman who spawned, raised and allowed to be the way he was without a complete disowning of him, could be in heaven.

Please accept this admission as an apology.

🙄🙄🙄

He definitely sounds promising.  I would have gone with Steyn or tried out someone like Bo.  Give them a contract for a year.  If they don’t pan out, try again.  I guess the PremRat suits can’t look ahead more than 3 months at a time and are comfortable with reliable mediocrity rather than go for the best, even if it takes a little while to find it. Excellence In Broadcasting doesn’t seem to be a strong PremRat characteristic.

I'm curious if Rush's old crew will be around to start this show and stay with it.

I am also curious if they will continue the EIB Network facade. If they do, I will think even less of Rush, his widow and the iHeartRadio idiots.

I doubt I’ll listen this coming Monday.  Let us know what you learn if you do, Sean.

Yeah, I'm totally expecting a train wreck. Don't judge me!

By the way, James Golden made a claim that Rush had a staff meeting pretty much the exact time he was diagnosed with cancer.

 I beg to differ...

I remember posting on Twitter that there was something wrong, I thought maybe Alzheimer's. Rush had been grasping for words. He was at a loss of his vocabulary somewhat awfully. I'd have to guess January, 2020. In hindsight, it was very obvious that was when he received the bad news.

I've let my Twitter account wither, I don't even log in anymore,  I should probably find them and claim I had psychic powers.
