It has been a while since Chip Franklin and Rob Douglas have left the once Mighty Powerhouse, WBAL. Despite what most of the libeal critics have said in this blog, WBAL is spiraling into a freefall to rock bottom. The once fiesty conservitive, Ron Smith, now in his twilight years as a radio host has lost his, "Voice of Reason" status and has become more the "The Voice of Opinion" as he has proven himself to be short with caller who disagree with his resolve. What a shame, reasoning out the answers to life's problems with inciteful callers was once Ron's specialty. Maybe the drive to work from the O'malley free state to the north has become too long.
Sherri Eliker a grade "B" actress with limited radio expierence was selected to replace the controversial yet high rated Chip Franklin in the mornings. Unfortunately Sherri, despite your attractive glamour shot on WBAL's website, a pot of Columbia's strongrest coffee just isn't enough to keep us awake. Your topic are safe if not boring. The Sherri Eliker Program is the elevator music of talk show radio.
C4... What pleasant suprise this ex-democratic politician turned out to be. At first I was a skeptic. Not only was he a politician but from a long lineage of politicians. Yet Clarence Mitchell IV show sign of radio greatness with his ability to not only reason by taking all sides of the spectrum, but also by using the moral high road with a dash of common sense when approaching his shared reasoning on all issues. C4, if you dicided run again for local government..Governor?... I will vote for you.
Bruce Elliot.. Pal, I love you. You are mushy goodness mixed with Christian values and common sense. No wonder all the Libs hate your guts. You represent the decency of the common everyday 9 to 5 guy....and yes, I hug my kids.
Chip Franklin may not be everything to all men, but what he did was raise WBAL's energy to an all time high. Although the banter was loud at times, the topics called for emotion for they were cutting edge and late breaking. His panel were devisive as well as humorous and inciteful. I know the libs are happy to be rid of Chip and Robbie Douglas, but the silent majority are still mourning Baltimore's loss of not only these men who made us think, but also the loss of a once great radio station who jest for riding in a storm of challenge and controvery has settled for a light breeze of mediocrity.
