John I really miss you on the radio. Your charm, quick wit and smart responses to todays topics is what we need to get the youth of america involved in politics and being proactive in the process. I wish you the best in all you do, you are a great talent!
Charles...if you don't like him don't listen...
Sodomy is NOT just between a man and a man. By definition, oral sex is considered sodomy. I'm pretty sure that will still go on between a man and a woman no matter what the Supreme Court says. How would the Pastor answer that?
So good to hear you back on the radio. KABC should give you your own show. How about Geraldo's spot? He harps too much on illegals, really tired of hearing that on his show. At least you have a variety of topics.
Missing you on the air.
The minute Doug comes on the air I change the station. He is awful...he thinks he's funny and he's not.
While you were still on with him I listened but the way he belittled you made me angry. I'm glad you are
not taking that anymore but I would love you to be back of the air again. You are the best at expressing
conservitive ideas and solutions.
WHEN WILL YOU BE BACK ON THE AIR???
I came to this website to find out what happened to John. I think he has a great radio voice and a poignant (although periodically caustic) sense of humor. I like the repoir he has with Doug; I think they work well together. I don't watch television, so I won't see John there. John is far right, but I try to listen to many sides to become educated and I appreciate what John says. I do like Geraldo...I think he is a pro and I like that he has lots of guests that express different views. This website, however, is about John and I wish him good luck.
You should find another carrier
John im sorry to see your cash cow gone – I know how much you love this story – I use to listen to you when you were on at knight but when I heard your show in the day time you just sounded like an old nag and a wana b tuff guy – im glad Geraldo is there so I could listen to the radio again – along with larry elder. You should find another carrier
John, first - was that guy who called in and said the hunt for Dornan was racially motivated - was he kidding?
Second - The schools in Riverside County got additional security during the hunt for Dornan. Does "additional security" mean armed guards? Does this mean that putting armed guards at a school will increase security? Wouldn't it be enough to tell Dornan that this was a gun-free zone and he wasn't welcome?
Loved your show with Mark. Please come back.
Just started the podcast with Mark Thompson, throughly enjoying it. I really didn't think I was going to enjoy it, but I am loving this!
Just thought I'd let you know how much I enjoyed your interplay with Mark Thompson on the M&L podcast this morning.
Great fun...keep up the good work!
Yo john P....Miss the talk, chats & expert commentary !!!!! Hurry back, the fading world needs you !!! Look forward to the TV gig !!! JOHN
Hi Johnny, first I was wonderong if you could go back to morning radio and have them take out Heraldo. I don't me to be rude but I am tired of listening to him talk about himself when a topic comes up he is always in it and has done it. Most importantly I miss your show and the only time I have a chance to listen is in the morning on my way to work. Just tell the network to drop Heraldo he is not a good radio host at all. I really miss hearing you. Yours Truly Madeline
I can't help but feel that you're the Rodney Dangerfield of KABC. You just can't get any respect. You finally got your own time slot after Doug's show. So far, so good. Things were going well, then you were summoned to the manager's office for a sit down meeting only to be told Heraldo was getting your time slot. That stinks! When are you finally going to say, "enough!" and go over to a radio station that appreciates you?
Geraldo is a douche! Fire that flake and give Johnney his own show
We need your help!!! Prop 30!!! What a joke!! People in general do not understant that once again we have been lied too. I'm a Career Counselor for High School Students and young Adults at SoCal ROC. in Torrance CA. after 45 yrs. we have been put in the budget "0" Our funds will go to the monies that he has promised to "all" education. I know you are very informed in this a wish to hear more from you. Our students are very upset and have placeto turn. Would love to have you visit us..before it's to late. Thank you for you time. 310 569-4528
Johnny, please be more clear about when you'll next be on air or will have your own show. There are many of us who just love you and want to hear more from you. If you have a mailing list or something we can join, please let us know!
Thank you! -C
My wife and I were listening to you fill in for Larry Elder last Thursday. You were talking about "Swatting" and you played a recording of a sheriff's dispatcher and we looked at each other and said, "That's Ms. Cousins!" She and I are partners and I was sitting next to her when that call came in. I'm a Watch Deputy at Lomita Station. I told her that night that she was a radio personality and she had a blank look on her face; she's not a listener of Larry's show. I was wondering if there is a way I could get a recording of that segment to play for her. She and her kids would get a big kick out of it. I was also wondering how you ever got a copy of that call. Not that I expect you to reveal any confidential sources but I'm just curious.
And that wasn't the first call we had like that. I took a similar call a few month (not sure exactly) earlier and I actually heard a gunshot over the phone. It turned out to be a hoax also but we were scrambling around at the station trying to find out where the caller might be since he had given us a bogus address. Never did find him.
John you make my day...You are one of my favorite hosts on KABC!
I am thrilled with your new step you have taken to be with Allen West. I admire your youth, points of view and sense of humor. It's nice to see such young talent be acknowledged and grow. We need more people like you. Blessings on your new adventure.
Your segment on the ethnic cleansing -- this was going on in Highland Park for years. The Mexicans said their people had been there since the '50s and they didn't want blacks there.
My sister, many friends who still listen to KABC and I absolutely love you. Your wit, intelligence and sense of humor is without equal. Please say that you are not leaving the station. It would not be worth listening to if you are not there.
listened to you on free speech friday this am. you got a call from a man who advocated armed rebellion if they threw out the second ammendment. while his idea was a bit extreme and possibly treasonous, you just hung up on him and told him to call back with a sober thought. i thought you were out of line. free speech involves listening to ideas you are not always in agreement with. then you later made a few cracks about people with rascist ideas and crazy people who always begin their comments with, "i am not a ------ but." afraid those statements are not really fair on free speech friday because you would not take or allow calls from rascists or crazies. of course if anything goes, then your comments should too. that is free speech.
I have heard a lot of talk about taking guns & high capacity clips away from honest citizens. But those of us that own guns know it will only harm the honest citizen. I have also heard we should have security guards at all schools which would be costly and seems to scare a lot of people that don't like guns.
What I have not heard anyone talk about is putting security doors or security bars on the doors in classrooms (which start at around $50). That way each classroom could be locked down in seconds and be somewhat safe until the police arrive. That would be a quick fix, would be fairly inexpensive and would solve a lot of the pro-con gun issues by completely avoiding them.
Please give John back his show. He is the one that keeps us in touch with L.A. and what is happening there. We want some local shows. Get rid of Texas, get back to L.A..
Hi John! Nice web page. Definately better than most I've seen. First, I want to let you know that I am a big fan. Being an old history major in school(older than you, that is) I am impressed with your knowledge and your use of older (from pre 1990's) cultural references, and your ability to find a comedic angle to almost any news story.
Second, I enjoyed you on "Red Eye" and wish you could be on more shows. I guess you can't be in NY all that often.
Third, as a regular listener to you and Doug, I am mortified that you guys always go to the vile liberal activist Sam Donaldson for analysis and his added commentary passing for news statements. He recently said on another show that the Tea Party ticked him off by saying that they wanted to "take back their country." Never mind that leftists have been saying this since George HW Bush's term. He said "It's our country now," and they need to deal with it. Every time Donaldson is on your or Doug's show, he demonizes Republicans and conservatives, today saying again, that the Republicans have no moderate or liberal arm of their party anymore. This is would be laughable if it weren't so preposterous. We all know that the Democrats have exorcised all conservative elements from their party and are now just a gang of Stalinists out to destroy all who oppose them. Neither Doug nor you corrects him, ever. You may be required to use this leftist turd, being on the ABC network, but for the sake of all that is Holy, don't use the Stalinist Donaldson for political analysis if you don't have to. Just my 2 cents.
I am SO glad you joined the morning show. They had started leaning so far left they were in a perpetual counterclockwise holding pattern.
Just a little historical perspective to possibly explain why the "most progressive state in the union" …. hasn't:
163 years ago --- 1850:
- California became a state.
- The people had no electricity.
- The state had no money.
- Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
- There were gunfights in the streets.
So, basically, nothing has changed ….. except, back then, women had real boobs and men didn't hold hands.
Keep up the great work!
not only do I not care for Geraldo, but I actually turn my radio OFF after the 9:00 news so I don't have to listen to one word from him. Just sayin'.............
Please, please, PLEASE John, it's time to get RID of Geraldo. For God's SAKE, PLEASE get rid of this race-baiter. With his pandering, emotional dismissal of the word "alien" (which is a LEGAL TERM) to refer to those who are NOT citizens, to today with his "Wahhh. I just don't understand why these people fear their government so much....and you can't TELL ME there's not a racial component to this! Wahhhhhhh!"
It's the most offensive thing I think I've ever heard on KABC, ever. It's pandering to the nth degree, race-baiting, and pure poison. You're DAMN RIGHT I'm afraid of the government...I'm afraid of ANYONE who thinks it's their place to try and control how other people live their lives, because it DOESN'T STOP until we are all slaves...."for our own good." He sits there, smugly telling the audience that he thinks we pledge allediance to the flag, AND THE GOV'T IT STANDS FOR, when the reality is, we pledge our allegiance to the COUNTRY...not the GOVERNMENT.
And this complete NONSENSE that he poisons the audience with "you can't TELL ME there's not a racial component to this"...you're DAMN RIGHT I can tell you there's not a racial component to this, you smug, arrogant know-it-all! I fear Obama, and I fear Pelosi, and I fear Boehner, and I fear ANYONE who thinks they know better than others how they should run their lives. PERIOD.
It is TIME FOR GERALDO TO GO. Where do I start the petition?
Geraldo makes Leo Terrell look like Larry Elder. And I LOVE Larry Elder!
Hi John. So, I'm listening to the end of the Doug McIntyre Show this morning, and at 900 the ABC News segment comes on. They lead off with a story about how ICE has just had a big sting operation to arrest the large number of child molesters and also "rescue" a number of children. OK, I say, that's interesting - ICE - Immigration & Customs Enforcement is behind this. Shouldn't we be hearing something else about these "people" who were arrested? I mean does ICE do law enforcement of regular US citizens now? Well, I guess so, because the words "illegal aliens" or even "undocumented immigrants" were not ever uttered. Hmm. What with this? (Well of course we all know - ABC News Directive No. 5873: You shalt never use the words "illegal aliens" or other such descriptions for these poor helpless people who just want a better life, even if they are child molesters, drunk drivers or murderers. Our delicate citizens must be protected from this hate speech at all times!).
John, Thank you so much for having Rob Marikno on your show - it was great to hear his voice again. Larry Van Nuys has been nice to hear as well. Having you replace Doug for the whole week I was off work was a special "Christmas" gift! Thank you again and Happy New Year (well almost)!
John, I wish they would just give you your own show..You're the best! Tell them to stop holding you back! ;-)
Thanks, Jeff Melendez
In 1776 Muskets were the ASSULT rifles of the times.... the 2nd Amendment doesn't address type of weapon but rather PEOPLE. The founders knew PEOPLE (tyrants) were the problems to a FREE Republic..... and it's more so today... As to loading a musket it can be done in 45 seconds...... not 10 minutes (another dumb ass comment from the uniformed).
With all due respect to your guest (the guy from CNN), his (and others like him's) "solution" to Gun Violence is akin to raking the leaves off of what USED to be someone's front lawn (after a storm destroyed their home) - and thinking they've "done something" to help! As I understand it, it took Law Enforcement (aka someone with a GUN) about 20 MINUTES to reach Sandy Hook Elementary School...
EVEN with a manual load weapon (I'm no gun expert [nor do I own a gun], so forgive me, if I don't refer to it correctly) - requiring EACH ROUND to be loaded into the chamber (aka "cocked") before it can be fired - like Lee Harvey Oswald used to kill President Kennedy, Lanza STILL could have killed the 26 people with NO PROBLEM! According to the research, Oswald took a little under 5 seconds between the two shots that hit President Kennedy...
20 Minutes = 1200 seconds / 5 Seconds per shot = 240 shots (assuming he had 240 bullets).
I've also seen clips on YouTube of a guy with a rifl! (also manually cocked) shooting (hitting) two targets with a mere 3 seconds between shots. Granted, it would have taken some time to "reload", but to suggest that guns that can "only" hold 10 bullets, and that must be manually cocked (the non-semi-automatic weapons) would have prevented this tragedy is ABSURD, MORONIC, and IGNORANT of the FACTS!
THE problem is NOT the GUN (nor how many bullets it fires, nor how fast), but the PEOPLE who use them for EVIL! Let us ALSO not lose sight of the FACT that Lanza was violating SEVERAL EXISTING LAWS (he was too young to HAVE a gun [at least the gun shop where he tried to purchase one refused on that basis], and it's ALREADY illegal to MURDER PEOPLE [to say nothing of simply shooting AT someone (whether they die or not)]). WHY people believe that MORE (restrictive) LAWS would be a deterrent to those who ALREADY ignore the law, is beyond me! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Mark
Hey John!!!! Merry Christmas and Happy NY for 2013 awesome having you on air this week. You're the best!
I totally agree with most of these comments - we need you back on your own show! Doug is OK, but never shuts up. Talks over both you and T-Rae. Gets really boring after a while. Would like to see Doug back on overnight radio and you back for a full morning show.
Alway enjoy your humor and takes on issues. I even spoken and sang on KABC with you.
Hey John, just came over to your page. We really really miss your 5th hour show and all your stories, opinion and cool music (Eels..."AW YEAH!"). Please please please can the head of KABC give you your own show. Doug is good also, but the two of you clash on the same show. The newsreader is awful stumbling all over her words.
Please consider all offers if another station wants to steal you! But let us know where you go because I would listen to you anywhere. You rock John! -LindaG
Hi, John, just reading some of these comments. I have listened to KABC for 7 years now online from Guangzhou, China. I am from Washington state teaching here. Anyway I agree, you are a great host and so is Doug. I enjoy you both. As already stated you both need your own shows and need time to have callers on the show. I like that the best. Doug and Red Eye Radio was great and he was a natural with callers. Never listen to it anymore since they changed hosts. As every one is saying you need that 5th hour back, so let your bosses know that. Thank you Doug.................
Talk to you in about 40 yrs. ... you may have a slightly different perspective on age ... just sayin'
I listen to the mcintyre show more than Bill handal over all because Handal is inconsistent in his views. As for the election results and telling the republicans that they need to be more modern or inclusive how are they going to do anything when their base didn't(and may not in a future more modern eclectic base) show up to vote?
The gap between Obama and Romney was 2million The Republican's had 3million people who didn't vote republican may be 3rd party or stayed home!!! These are white voters who believed that Romney was too moderate so they cast a protest vote. Obama was down by 10million votes.
Can you really blame Reagon for these people not voting? Yes, the republicans do have to have more people voting for them but their base 3million are not active.
Wow ! Can you believe CA actually elected something like Brown to be Governor? What kind of braind dead losers would settle for him. Pay Up Suckers! The pub unions have got CA families in a death grip. No State is in worse shape because in other States voters aren't Morons.
I CAN NOT WAIT FOR TUESDAY NIGHT JOHN!!! YOUR ANALYSIS WILL BE FASCINATING. HOPE ROMNEY WINS.
Do you remember a car salesman in Texas being arrested in a plot to kill some ambassador? He plead guilty last week, and admitted to working with an Iranian controller. Don't you wish we could work half as hard to keep our own ambassadors safe?
Love the show and your observations regarding the polls. Thought you might find the following site interesting (http://unskewedpolls.com/) which attempts to evaluate the polls based on prior voting percentages. It gives a much different view of what's going on.
I hate McIntire show...I MISS THE 5th hour with you and only you, John Phillips. And do you talk shows know that your commercials are actually longer than your show...I time it. I can't stand it. I'm done.
This is going to be an interesting convention. I am speaking of the Republican Convention in storm-dampened Tampa. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and the numerous Republican speakers will give us their blueprint for the future. .We'll also hear from former Congressman Artur Davis from AL who gave the seconding speech for Obama's nomination for President at the last Democratic Convention. Davis left the Democratic Party not long after he saw how Obama, Pelosi, other Democrats were approving of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations and mayhem. After 4 years of Obama, "Jimmy Carter Jr." presiding over the 2nd Malaise, there has got to be something better. Yes?
I cannot believe the radio removed the 5th hour for Geraldo. My family and I cannot stand Geraldo, nobody understand his position and not funny or interesting at all. I am moving to other radios. Johnny you were so interesting and need your own show.
I MISS YOU ON THE 5TH HOUR! I don't like you on that "other show" from 5:00am to 9:00am...I don't think it's "your" show...whose show is it anyway? I can't call you anymore and give you my opinion...especially on Friday's. I miss that. I miss your 5th hour. Please come back....now!
Geraldo is a has-been boring retard. KABC bosses are such retards to replace John with this fool. John has THREE TIMES the ratings of Geraldo. Yet Geraldo Hasbeen gets 3 hours.
I'd trade Geraldo for you every day of the week and all day long. Glad you have the early morning gig. Please help promote the movie 2016. There is no political issue bigger than who Obama really is.
John, Enjoy you on KABC. I like your rational thought process. One thing I never hear discussed on talk radio is how much the Federal Govt has grown under Mr Obama. Since 2/2008 the Fed Gov ( w/o US Post Svc) has added 217K people or 11%, approx 4 billion $'s per year! This info is from the BLS databases. Granted, local and state govs have declined by a combined 566K people, that's only because they have to balance their budgets. I find it incredulous that the Feds would grow by 11% during a recession.
Again, I can't believe this doesn't get any airplay from conservatives during an election year.
P.S. Wish you gould take Geraldo's spot and give us 3 hrs of just you a day.
Hi John, keep doing a great job,I'm glade your on Doug show,but It was better when you had your own show
Agree with some of the comments. Way too many people now on MCINTYRE IN THE MORNING. Seems as if all three are now vying to get heard throught the 4 hours. Love Doug and Terri-Rae as well as you John but you need your own show. You have your own style and you need your own thing.
I don't know if you know this fact, but Councilwoman Galloway PAID for Joel Acevedo's funeral, the guy who shot at the Aneheim police officers and got killed for it. That's pretty screwed! What kind of official would pay for a would-be cop killer's funeral?? What kind of message is that?
Hi John, Just a quick note to say love your show here in South Africa online! I grew up in LA and moved here 19 years ago but love your views and getting all the news from that side of the world. If you ever get this side let me know will buy you a beer and we can talk kak (SA for shit). Have A Great show
