OK, i've been too hard on George..

When he first got on board, I fully supported him - because he had some big shoes to fill -and I had high hopes. Plus, you know - he seems like a nice guy ;)

As time went on, certain .. aspects of his interview style began to grate on my nerves and I found myself back peddling a bit, even getting INFURIATED at some of the comments or questions he aiming at guests.

A few nights ago it finally dawned on me.

George's strength is in conspiracy/political issues. It's that simple.

When the subject matter is supernatural/paranormal, he's just a regular guy with a regular guy's opinion (ie, not an "expert" as we've come to know Art to be, in these matters). And I suppose a bit of jealousy on my part ("I could ask better questions than that! Why isn't he bringing up the blah blah blah or referencing the blah blah blah?").

But when he has a guest on where the focus is anything but ghosts/hauntings/esp/paranormal activity/etc - specifically when the issues are political, historical, war related, etc - George *really* does shine.

I still think he drops the angels and shadow-people bombs a bit much ;) but otherwise i've come full circle and think he's doing a good job. A GREAT job with the conspiracy/war/politics stuff.

I just wanted to say that out loud, because i'm guilty of bashing him in here in the past ;)

I can't stand George for the life of me. I was listening the other night when they were heavy on the politics, and I really didn't want to hear that. If I wanted that, I'd watch CNN or MSNBC or something.

More ghosts

More Greys

More Kennedy was shot by Jesus Christ in a cadillac.

More of that demon guy that called in the other night.

Hell, I'd rather hear Ian Punnit every night.

George leans too far to the right for my tastes. He doesn't show it outright, but he does occassionally drop the "rightie" bomb, giving himself away.

Personally, I really like Ian Punnit.

But, George does have his strenghts too, just as you say. He did well with the Vietnam POW show the other night.

And, of course, it WAS awfully cool for him to email me back when I fast blasted him last Friday night...lol...

Due to the nature of my work over the decades, I often find myself in a conscious state during the wee hours so to speak, and AM BCB is usually my companion during these forays into the night.

Whether it's Art, George, or Ian, C2C is still the most entertaining thing on the airwaves at that hour, even if I find myself glaring at the speaker uttering "WTF?"

About the only radio show that came close to C2C in sheer entertainment value was the late Bill Cooper's "Hour of the Time".

Yeah, I'm with you on that - I listen to C2C every night - have been for decades.. :)

George's predisposition to shadow-government type conversations over the pterodactyls spotted on the freeway has always been a downside for me.

I suspect that it takes many years to get to the level of involvement Art had on many of those subjects. So maybe one day C2C will chafe George enough to be all around.

but it is my only late night radio fix.

I agree with you completely, George is a good guy and I can't get enough of him. He's all heart and it shows

I like George better. He seems to feel that his job is to let the guests do their thing.

Politically, both Art & George seem conservative to me. I am a bit alarmed that George has Alex Jones on so much. It may just be an attempt to attract his audience.
