Nick Coleman has a radio show.
Luke Francl says:
This ought to raise some wingnuts' blood pressure. For that reason, if no other, I find this amusing. Hopefully, no one pops a vein...[and, in a later comment] My interest in his show is entirely based on the possiblity that one of you crazies will have a coronary.File this under "Delusional". The only veins that will pop over a Coleman radio show will be popped from excessive laughter.
If you've never heard Nick Coleman on the air, you're in for a treat, where "treat" equals "fiesta of ineptitude". His voice is the closest to a monotone that I've ever heard on a radio that didn't come from a high school wrestling coach.
Blazing wit? Listening to him trying to pick up a straight line is like watching a fat man swing at a Santana slider with a folding chair.
The only way he can stay properly on mike is if is face is lashed to it.
The funniest part - besides the fact that AM950 manager Janet Robert thought Coleman would be a marketable air talent - is that Nick Coleman was the one that groused and phumphered about amateur bloggers stepping on his turf; he's the guy who "knows stuff", doncha know. And now, he's going to be a major-market morning host at a big...market...[I can hardly control myself]...station...
...anyway, after Coleman's spittle-flecked vituperation about Powerline and the rest of us crashing his party, (even though they are more professional and accountable than he is in his writing), it's funny to watch Nick putting on his DJ costume and acting like a broadcaster, even though he has paid precisely zero dues in the business (his KSTP show made Oliver Willis' podcasts sound acceptable), and quite audibly knows nothing about radio, and seems to confuse "talk show" with "sitting around a barber shop and bitching about the world".
This should be really...
Assuming the story is true, of course. The AM950 website is silent about any Nick Coleman show.
Maybe they're not so dumb.
UPDATE: The Fraters' Atomizer did me one better; he listened to the show this morning, earning the Northern Alliance "Take One For The Team" award for '05. At least he confirms the show's existance.
And...to a caller with an opposing view "Take a shower, get dressed and go get a job."Indeed.
And I loved this:
"I'm nobody's monkey."No, Nick. You're everybody's monkey. You bounce about shrieking frenetically, but one shriek sounds pretty much the same as all the others. And when all is said and done all you have is a bunch of crap stuck to the walls. Posted by Mitch at February 2, 2005 05:02 AM | TrackBack
