Are Morning Show Hosts on Meth or Speed?

First a confession- I do not listen to radio except for a few controversial clips, once in a while. While there are many reasons to dislike radio as a medium, one of them stands out-

I detest chirpy and hyper morning show hosts.

Only paternalistic pretenders on public radio invoke anywhere near the same level of antipathy. It is hard to understand how and why any non-medicated or mentally normal human being could act like that at anytime of the day- let alone at 5 am in the morning.

The sheer amount of agitation and phony enthusiasm in their voices makes me wonder if they are high on something. It must be hard to muster that amount of phony enthusiasm at 5:30 am to hawk used cars, cheap mattresses and breakfast deals- every single day for years on end. I wonder if they go home and drink themselves into oblivion to escape the horror of their pathetic lives.

What do you think? Comments?

    Hm, for a good AM Paternalist there’s Charles Adler – a bit old, buy thoroughly libertarian. He’s even had men’s rights discussions recently (though I don’t think he’s called it by name). Canadian voice, he gives me a good feeling in my chest. Not one of the sarcastic bombasts.

    It’s called the Morning Zoo format. Program managers order them to act that way because that’s what their “focus groups” tell them people, and through them, advertisers want. More and more of these duos, or trios if they have “the hole” to appeal to female listeners, are losing their jobs as radio stations cut staff to save money. In car internet will eliminate these people as well as the major radio stations. You’ll spend your commute listening to your favorite podcast or music commercial free. Many people are doing this already.

    It´s amazing what happens when you go to bed at 9 PM and awaken at 5 in the morning.
    And very unnatural if you ask me. 😉

      I usually meditate, do yoga and go for walks at that hour.
