Jerry Agar: Worth a Shot

Posted by Mike on October 26, 2006

I’d like to recommend Jerry Agar’s radio show on WABC in New York City. He is a relatively new addition to the WABC lineup, broadcasting in the 8 PM timeslot. He replaced Laura Ingraham who was bumped to 10 PM. (dumb move WABC). Despite bumping Ingraham, Agar is worth a listen.

I especially appreciate Agar because in today’s climate, too many “conservatives” mistakenly believe they are conservative merely because they would tax less than Democrats, spend smaller amounts of other people’s money than Democrats, meddle in people’s lives less than Democrats, and socially engineer less than Democrats. Of course, taxing, spending, meddling and socially engineering in lower doses does not a conservative make. It merely makes on less arrogant and insane than Democrats. Not exactly something to brag about.

Agar is a different breed. He is a man with a unique familiarity with and understanding of conservatism. He explains the underlying conservative philosophy in a forceful and articulate manner, while honestly applying that philosophy to a given situation. It’s refreshing to hear conservative radio that rises above the tit-for-tat gotcha game that plagues even some of the best political broadcasts.

Most importantly, the show is entertaining. The topics are not stale, he is rude to liberals (although his rudeness is not as polished as Mark Levin’s, Agar is still entertaining) and his forceful style is refreshing.

Jerry Agar can be heard on WABC Monday through Friday at 8 PM. Give him a shot.
