I think this show is boring, just like Imus' Show. Thoughts?
I disagree completely. Gambling is at the top of his game.
The show covers a variety of issues -- including local ones -- not just political strategy. Gambling has the innate curiosity and life experience to tackle issues from a unique, often personal perspective. He's well informed and interesting. JJ Kennedy is a real pro whose soft-spoken sense of humor is rare in this age of strident, giggling females on radio.
The show is fast paced but not "tabloid" and -- with the exception of "Bumper Music Fridays*" -- there's no unnecessary schtick, music and phony, gratuitous put-downs that bring Imus' show to a grinding halt.
I think Gambling's show might be the best talk show currently heard on NY radio. I hope it stays.
*Gambling has no taste in music and plays the worst crap from the '70s! That stuff is why I abandoned listening to music radio for talk radio back then. Please, John, stop playing DJ! "When in doubt -- leave it out."
