  1. Well deserved, Michael Savage! The only talk show host that tells it like it should be told! This has been a long time coming, and CONGRATULATIONS to Michael. I hope he stays on top for a long, long time. Now, I just wish more stations would actually air his show. But that’s OK that they don’t – I just turn off the radio and listen online. No problem. 😀
