I've been listening to 88 radio for I can't even remember how many years! I listen so much and for do long that everytime I hear the kars for kids commercial my body cringes! But lately I find myself turning off the station because you're running ads for unbelievably Fox News Liars! I cannot listen to a station that will run ads for people that have completely divided the country lied to Americans about the election the virus and everything else they possibly can for years and years and years just so they can stay in power and when elections! Keep running ads for Sean Hannity and Mark Levine and Tucker Carlson and I will never listen to your station again! Never! You're letting people that destroy this country advertise on your radio! When I hear there add about speaking the truth it makes me want to throw up! You should be ashamed of yourself I hope you take the money that you made from their advertising and you choke on it!
You really don't know what you got till it's gone

Did I hear the other day, Wednesday I believe, that there is a NJ Class Action Lawsuit against GEICO? I find evidence of such in other States. Surely do think NJ should get on board. GEICO gave me a pathetic $50 Covid rebate and has now raised my premium $160...
I keep hearing the report today that 3,000,000 shots means 3,000,000 people treated. That is not true since with the current vaccine you need two shots. So the 3,000,000 shots mean that 1,500,000 people would be treated.
I’m a little disappointed. This evening around 5:30 Linda Lopez was doing a story on the double mask issue but whomever wrote the copy decided to lead with ‘back at the beginning of the pandemic we were told to not wear masks...’. Did they think that was truly necessary??? There is enough decisiveness over the mask issue so did they really have to put that out in the ether?? No other way to lead in the story?? Really. You guys are the best so please, think before you speak. If you want to reach me, my email is [email protected].
