Hello, Africa! Flag


This is a Great Program

We Love ‘John of Queens’ and ‘Frank of Staten’ Island!!!

We Need A Third Party

nFrank and John explain how the duplicitous actions taken by the Bush Administration against the people of the United States, regarding the illegal immigration amnesty bill, only show that we desperately need a valid third party in America. We all should have heeded the advice of callers to The Right Perspective, such as Steve from Manhattan and the late Richard of Dallas, whose prophetic words have unfortunately come true.

Frank also discusses a New York Times article, “The Struggle for Relevance in the Post-Apartheid Era” which, as usual, blames “the vestiges of Apartheid” for the belief that raping babies cures AIDS, when it in fact is cultural ignorance of the Bantu peoples.


Dennis Prager

Dennis Prager – 2007-05-18




Darn! Guest host yesterday and tapes today… Dennis is one of my favorite people on radio I often listen to shows over because I remember a quote or want to hear what one person said to the other. WHY did I have to wait so LONG for Dennis to post a taped SHOW?

Happiness Hour: Transparency
Prager H2: You need to be able to open up to someone. Ideally, you can express your inner feelings to your spouse, but if you can’t open up to your spouse, then talk a friend, if not a friend a therapist, if not a therapist, priest, but someone. Originally recorded on October 6, 2006.



Open Lines
Prager H3: Per usual, listeners set the agenda. Issues raised include: should a female college professor get plastic surgery; who is the greatest American; how can one resist an affair with a former high school sweetheart; what one question should be put to a representative of CAIR. Originally recorded on November 17, 2006.
