I listen to Mike over the Internet. I have seen his web broadcasting, and frankly his accomodations resembeles the old
TV Show, Fernwood Tonight. If you recall, the furnishings on that shoe were quite shabby, but that was intentional. Mike’s set up is not so. I was allowed a peek into his studio for free, so my observations come from only that. But, there is a glass between him and Kathy, like in a real studio, mike has a lamp, whose is reflected off the glass. It gives off an eerie glow. But then again, it is his basement. Mike is old, and the pictures from his camer shows an old man.
Now, this is not to disparage the guy. I mean, Mike has bounced around the radio dial for at least 20 years. I know, I folowed him from WLS to WIN Radio, a Union sponsered prpogram, to Air America, to Nova. And now, like a soldier forced to surviive on his own, he has dug a fox hole, and he is strapped in for a last ditch fight. But, Mike is old, and no matter how hard he fights, time is running out.
This alone makes me feel sad. Not only are there those who are still ignorant of what Mike is Preaching about,but the fight is really unequal. On the one hand, you have money and power who control the air waves, and then there is Mike in his bunker, and Fernwood lamp.
I know Mike is no believwer in any religion, but I am reminded of the prophets in the Bible who becried their plight because they thought they were the only ones speaking out for the truth. I am reminded of Jeremiah, who called Iseral to Repent, but of course, they did not. I believe that it was Jeremiah who said that the rich would sell the poor for a pair of shoes.
So Mike Malloy, the Mad prophet cries out ;”I’m mad as Hell, and I’m not going to take it any more!” “Network”! Anyway, he says that the Republicans are going to win the Senate come the next election. Can the end not be too far off?
