COLUMBIA'S LOCAL TALK RADIO EXPERIENCE

STUDIO LINE: 803-799-TALK (8255)

Say it! Say it! I dare you!

     It’s that time of the year….holiday season!  Or, dare I say it— it’s almost Christmas.  WOW!  Did you just say Christmas?  Yeah, a bad word to some people these days.  Can’t say that–might offend those who celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or Festivis.  Let me make this clear.  I’m Jewish.  I celebrate Hanukkah and that’s all. …

Pain and resilience

What’s it like when it comes to being a Jewish member of the media in Columbia, South Carolina?  It’s not really a big deal—except when something heinous like the massacre at a synagogue in Pittsburgh takes place—a synagogue that just so happens to share a name with one in our local community.  Oh, and one…

Bent—not broken.

        The most-recent poll we did here at www.makethepointradio.com was about the political climate in Washington D.C.  What generated the poll was what happened with the whole Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings.  In the 29 years I’ve been in talk-radio (24 in Columbia), I’ve never seen a level of ugliness like I saw…

Corporate media…so frustrating.

      For many years now, I’ve been very consistent.  I’ve always said any business owner should be able to keep or fire someone with or without cause.  The exception?  Nobody should ever be fired because of religion, skin color, gender or sexual orientation.        Good.  So, I got that out of…

Don’t mess with this storm

There are so many people—so many folks who look at these storms as they’re approaching and make jokes.  If you’ve ever been through a real hurricane—I mean, one where you just can’t recognize and compare the before/after pictures—then, you wouldn’t be making jokes about what might or might not be coming our way. I don’t…

Why I love the Fall….

Fall in South Carolina is magical!  I love it.  It means football—it means the leaves changing colors and falling.  It means the State Fair.  It means cooler temperatures but not cold temps.  I love the Fall.  Football season is here— Carolina and Clemson will have big years.  The Gamecocks will continue to ascend under the…

So, you wanna own your own business?

There are so many challenges and moving parts involved with being a small business owner.  I’ll say it up-front.  I love it!  I love the challenges and I love learning to try and navigate all these moving parts.  It’s never the same from one day to the next. The “American Dream” for some is to…

OUR POWER BILLS – AND OTHER MUSINGS

I don’t know anyone too happy knowing that a chunk of our monthly power bill is going literally into a hole that seems bottomless. We have our General Assembly, Westinghouse, SCANA, Santee Cooper and I’m sure plenty of others for this. It really frustrates me. I know it doesn’t make you very happy either. So,…
