    I wonder if I count as a listener.  I now tune in at 12, listen to the news, and then quickly turn it off if I hear her voice.  (One never knows.  It could be Morgan White or Bradley Jay.)

    Re: WBZ Night Talk Radio 12am-5am

     

    I’ve been listening to Jen Brien when I get up for work in the early AM for the weather forecast.  I've been trying to figure out her politics by how she comments to people. 

     

    This morning I finally found out what she is by a comment she made about John Kerry.  She called him a peacenik.  At that point I knew she was a warmonger, a Republican. 

     

    Then I found out when I looked her up on the internet that she was a radio talk show host on WRKO, Boston’s premier hate radio station.   Further, I listen to a short recorded session from 2010 and I found out she’s a Tea Bagger, a complete nut job.

     

    Well, I won’t be listening to WBZ anymore.  I’ll look up the weather on my smart phone rather than hear it on the dumb station.

    Re: WBZ Night Talk Radio 12am-5am

    She must have gotten a good review at the meeting with her boss that she told us they had.  Must feel secure enough to spend the show tonight soliciting a place to live in or near Boston, so she can be close to the job.  Of course, guys are welcoming her, and the grandmothers are mothering her with advice about it.  But no female roommates looking for roommates, so far.  

    Aside: She never mentions female friends, come to think of it.  Actually, never mentions friends at all, even in general, so to speak.

    ****************

    ETA:  2:10 - "When the boss offered me the job, he asked me if I'd be willing to move up from the Cape, and I said yes."  So, she must have been told, or feels, that she's passed probation.  And maybe got a little carrot and stick re moving.  "So ... What are you going to do with this ... When are you moving?"

    [I know, I said above that I briefly check to see who's on, and then click away. But...]

    ETA: She thinks she can find something nice for what she's paying now ($1100) closer to Boston, ha, ha, ha. 

    Strange callers tonight.

    Right, won't touch anything close to $2,000.  Good luck.  Though the men are offering her a place for free.

    I've been toggling between WROR and WCRB, and her.  Did Kerry Connolly stop in?  Earlier, she raved about their friendship.  ...Though Kerry keeps saying she will visit her when she's on the Cape, but hasn't and won't say when.

    I assumed Kerry was just being polite.   As in: "Call me, we'll do lunch sometime."

    Regarding those roomate offers from the men....nothing is ever really for freeWink Is it?

    Kerry is on vacation, Jen misses her and plans to tell her tons of stuff when she returns next week.

    A lot of the callers were pointing her to Newton to rent a house, but she says I don't want to pay a lot, try $2500-$4000 Jen, for a very simple small one, no pets allowed.

    Quincy???  Concord???  Hingham???   I don't think the people who suggested these places get out much :)   Quincy for a woman alone, I don't think so.  The other spots $$$

    I'm surprised they didn't recommend Lynn, on the ocean, train service, a lovely city.  <sarcastic>

    Then she was talking about money troubles, her debit card was lost, then it wasn't.

    Something is wrong.

    I'll have to try those other stations you mentioned, I'm up a lot at night trying to keep an old dog comfortable (hospice).   I want to relax, not get worked up over someone elses problems.

    Oldies and classical.  Hopefully they work vs. fingernails on the blackboard, and much more important things.

    Agree.

     

    And Jordan Rich is back being a trooper.  Seems he works at not letting his wife's passing paint his whole show.  (The irony.)  Tipped his hat to Morgan White.  He said he took his son to college and then broke down (not on the show).  Really rough for his family, including his wife, knowing she would miss these big rites of passage.

    Dan Rea said Thursday he was going to a Red Sox game Friday night.

    Jen if you are reading this, please call a local rescue group or no kill animal shelter, there are many of them in Mass and they will make sure that the 2 yr old Goldendoodle(?) is placed in a good home.

    Coincidentally...

    By the way, Morgan White will stand in for Jordan Rich to observe Yom Kippur this coming Friday-Saturday overnight.

    I guess she has some fans.   I just don't understand why they had to give her 5 nights.

    It would have been nice if they divided up the time between Morgan and Bradley and Jen.

    It must be a tough gig, I don't envy anyone who takes it on.

    Funny, the reason I came back here now is to say I'm in about the same place.  Would add that a regular schedule would be good if they were to do it again.  But I think we're outa luck.  In her view, at least, she's all-in with the move up to Boston. (Plus she's giving up her dogs.)  No way could she afford it if it were a part-time gig.  And could Casey/Chris, whatever his name is, let that happen if their real plan is to move on?  That would be the worst form of Machiavellian.  

    I wonder if she would ever cry uncle.  When it's the 4-5 am witching hour, or anytime she's run out her string, no calls, and she's tweaking with either a rant or stream of consciousness, that alternative must seem inviting.

    Jay Talking Radio Show – Host Bradley Jay – Call 617 254 1030 – Every Sunday Night At Ten.

    Are you “normal” when it comes to social media usage?

    My initial thought was to ask Boston pedestrians if they were addicted to Facebook or Twitter, but many addicts are unaware, or in denial, of their addiction. So rather than get bogged down by objectivity, I decided to ask a question with a quantifiable answer. The question is ‘how much time do you spend staring down the infinite corridor of social media?’

    SEE THE VIDEO

    I must admit that even I, a person critical of immersion in social media at the expense of all else, find myself drawn to it like a lab mouse to, well, mouse food. On a bus trip from Boston to Concord, NH, I didn’t look away from my iPhone till the battery died, and even then, I reflexively reached for the phone every five minutes, though my conscious mind clearly knew the phone was very dead. I am starting to realize that I am a bit out of control, but at least I realize it. Many don’t.

    Nice pickup.  

    In my opinion, he focuses the question down too narrowly.  I won't do facebook or twitter, but I still do a lot of - too much - time social networking online.

    I don't do twitter or facebook either, but I do have sites I check every day, and I read the news online.

    I have friends I've lost touch with, because they communicate primarily via facebook.
