Hrm. I don't want Coast to die. I can't listen to George Noory for more than 5 minutes before getting annoyed or more than 15 minutes before turning it off, but I still think that it's George that sucks, not Coast. Maybe I'm naive, but I think the show is redeemable if it weren't for douchebag. Okay, very naive, but still.
Coast should exist, but it doesn't need 9000 affiliates. Maybe it would be good if the show contracted. Maybe it could get back to its roots, cut the infomercial crap, return to a more spontaneous and mysterious feel, and above all get rid of George. Fucker makes me feel like I have Tourette's when I think about him. No expletive-laden sentence could possibly express how much I think he ruins the show. I sure as hell am not going to listen to Trucker radio, though.
Blah. I'm not even sure why I care any more.
p.s. - My thanks to those who post links to news about the lost affiliates.
