A Real Tale from the City: Michael Savage Gets Star Treatment in North Beach; High Fives and Fat Tony Adulation

 Quite a scene the other night outside the North Beach Restaurant where top syndicated-radio banana, Michael Savage, was outside roaming the streets and high-fiving, among others, Fat Tony from nearby Broadway.

Savage, who was no doubt celebrating his newfound radio ratings bonanza, went to see his friend, Lorenzo Petroni, the owner of the legendary Italian eatery who is battling a major illness.

Before Savage could make it into his splashy new vintage Jag convertible, several fans from across the street began converging on the SF-based radio star besieging the area into a sea of humanity.

The normally private sage, off the air, was blown away by the impromptu fans seeking autograph selfies and uber-high-fives! Looked like a scene out of Good Fellas --all we needed was Henry Hill.


After about 20 minutes of good, old-fashioned modern-day schmoozing, Savage took off in the Jag and left the North Beach corridor in style.

    7. You're right the hate spewing machine is doing well. They ONLY hate spewing machine is your socialist in chief in the White House with the help of the alphabet media raping the delusional liberals like you who can not tell what are the truths & what are lies. And, its a tragedy that you (LIBERALS) do NOT even know you (LIBERALS) are supporting a lying and hate spewing machine that has been doing everything it can to hurt Americans (particularly the needy, minorities, elders, handicapped, etc..) and U.S.A. economically & socially. The reality is Dr. Savage is telling you the TRUTH !

  2. I wouldn't in a million years contribute to that ego maniac's swollen head! He's pathetic how he offers up for himself on a constant basis self congratulatory aggrandizements. "Look at me"! "Look at what I've done!" "Mommy, daddy, look at me! Look at me!" It's pathetic. A grown man still in need of all these consolations. It's so apparent his father didn't stroke him enough. If he were to run for president, would I vote for him? Oh you betcha! Do I agree with the bulk of what he presents? Oh heck yeah! But personally, I think he's a horrible person. Talk about rude and obnoxious! there, I'm done.

    7. Gordon - I believe you may be correct regarding Mr. Savage ego, as I have never met him, but it is nice to see someone who stands up for what he believes. I assume many people share his beliefs and I like his show. I like his constant referral to his childhood as I do so with my kids when explaining to them my values and morals. So, I think while you may not enjoy his ego, his message of border, language, and culture is mainstream.

      BTW - I enjoy the beautiful artwork you have on your website. As someone who use to wholesale gem stones. Your eye for beauty is amazing and it looks like your craftsmanship is superb.

      Delete
    8. Gordon,
      Arrogant, rude, obnoxious, ego maniacal are exactly how I would characterize this enormously intelligent, tremendously gifted, electrifying personality; a very conflicted and educated person with high opinion of himself or being narcissistic.

      Unfortunately, being a very educated person he has not really learned how to be genuinely humble, he has not really learned how to treat another person without contempt or give due courtesy and respect when necessary.

      Clearly, we can see his genius, his rudeness and obnoxiousness has compelled his colleagues in the industry to alienate him, despise him and not accord him the due respect & accolade; although being isolated, he still has managed successfully in reaching the pinnacle of his broadcasting career without their support and recognition (of which he craves earnestly and infuriates him).

      Indeed, love him or hate him, Michael Savage is such a beautiful soul with humanity, a distinctive character, a polarizing figure that has indefatigably accomplished and contributed so much to the world in his long life.

      However, with all his short comings, Savage does merit our respect for being the courageous, intrepid voice of truth, the voice of reason; the light at the end of the tunnel in a very perilous time in American history facing her adversaries in every turn.

      Yes, Michael Savage is the man of the hour who deserves to be recognized on the world stage.

    9. Scumbags like you sound like the Obama's. According to you,no person in our/any society must exploit there achievements and intelligence in.I guess people like Dr.Savage got his intelligence from a higher source and didn't have to study hard in life therefor he does not have the right to brag for what he studied/worked so hard for in his years of living on planet Earth as a human species.You are what affirmative action is all about.You are the loser in life!

    10. Robert Crenshaw: Me??? Affirmitative action? What the hell are you talkin' about? I've never taken a dime or anything else from the gov in my life. Didn't I say I'd vote for him and all if he were to run for prez? I do believe your reading comprehension is at a third grade level. I never said he has no accomplishments. I said he's an obnoxious jerk jerk! I still listen to the punk everyday. If you're not offended by how rude he is, than I can only imagine that you've been raised in a barn! And anonymous #2. Thank you for your accolades regarding my work. I'm sure you were a pleasure to deal with within the trade.

    13. He reflects rather badly on America. A Jewish, foul mouthed opinionated wind bag, who can barely control his temper. He makes me wish we had let Hitler have his way in the 1930's, then perhaps there would be no Michael Savage.Is he gay, I don't know but he has all the spite of some gays I know.

    14. God almighty, you Americans are so rude, I never would have thought it. I don't think it would be possible to have a sensible debate with any of you. Just look at some of the terms in use on this page i.e. punk, Libturd, jack sh*t. Do you not know how to express yourselves any other way. I have children that can express themselves better than this, you belong back in school,all of you. This page really has altered my view of the 'country' across the pond. You are a collection of thugs.

  10. Lib-progressive elites own and control over 90 percent of America's public media entertainment conglomerates, including publishing, music, audio-visual communications, video gaming, Hollywood and virtually the news media.

    All of which they use discriminatingly to undermine American family values, rationalize infanticide, espouse obscene speech, demand double and triple standards of justice for select minorities, outlaw moral discernment, sensationalize and exonerate criminality, overthrow the discernible truth, re-invent US History and advocate religious apartheid.

    But yet for all their posturing on human rights, women's suffrage, mutual tolerance and coexistence, the constitutional rights of free speech, political satire and dissent...their anti-American fascism and hatred of anyone who is not ideologically like them will not permit one conservative man, much less anyone else for that matter, to speak his mind on the airwaves of America.

I know he has these rinos phony losers on his show, but, I still don't think he's worthy of the verbal onslaught presented by the "obnoxious one". Ans also, Sean isn't some uneducated buffoon. I mean, he has a degree and all. What the hell else does the "obnoxious one" expect of him. I think Weiner the wiener should have gone to finishing school to hone some of his nonexistent manners.

    3. Sean is not exactly innocent at all. Sean appears to be a nice Irish choir boy, but he has done his share of mud slinging at Savage with the help of his buddy Levin (whom made a practice to ridicule Savage on his show daily). Sean has been nothing but a sycophant, straddling both side of the aisle and is no wonder that his career has taken a dive, whilst Savage has ascended in his career.

    4. I'm not in love with Hannity. However, your claim he has only a high school degree is not accurate. He has a degree in journalism I'm sorry to admit. I don't know how he survived the onslaught of liberalism from the commie professors? Anyway, he's not my favorite by any stretch. I don't like all the rinos he promotes. He' sorta conservative light. But, I've heard he's a really cool guy by quite few folks. As far as Mark Levine goes, he has good reason to blast Savage. Savage has insulted him on more than one occasion. Levine was just firing back I hope you're not sayin' Levine isn't a patriot?

  12. I've been to North Beach Restaurant, the food there is AMAZING. The wine is great too. Sorry to hear Lorenzo is battling cancer. Its a favorite spot I always go to now when in SanFran and all because of Savage, he talked about the restaurant on his show and me and my wife went there. From the time you sit down to when you leave they take care of you there. Great place.

  13. If not for Dr. Savage then who in the conservative media would effectively challenge the insanity of multi-lingual voting and a polyglot federal government. Rush? Hannity? Dr. Savage is the leader among am radio talk show hosts with his cogent message of boarders, language and culture. Secretary of State John Kerry should work on getting Dr. Savage un-banned from Britain after Hillary Clinton failed to do her job as Secretary of State in plain English.

Also most musicians from the classic jazz days were veterans and would be considered conservative, JFK would be considered too conservative and Martin Luther King would be considered too religious.

    2. Levin eats Savage for lunch every day. He's focused, organized, intelligent, and energized while Savage is like spending time at the fishing pond...some keepers, some not, sometimes nothing at all.

      Issues that really matter make Levin angry and frustrated. Savage, to me, seems to be angry at times for the sake of being angry and pessimistic.

      Levin has better numbers but doesn't talk about them.

      Both are dog lovers, so it's a draw in that respect.

  15. A lot of hate from all sides. First of all as much as I love talk radio, and still listens, although there are not many great talk show hosts these days, I would caution ANYONE, to blindly take the word of a talk show host. I'm not saying they lie, although some do, but they have a way of editing their comments, so it favors their own view and thinking, that is fine, they are not journalists, and don't pretend to be, but it is scary how many people think a host (any host Savage, Hannity etc. are not to be questioned, we have to think for ourselves. I find it interesting that Savage is good friends with Lorenzo of North Beach restaurant, so is Ronn Owens, it is well known that Ronn and Savage cannot stand each other, wonder if they arrange to go there at different times? Of course of the air, very few people can stand Savage, or is it the other way around, he does not like many people. I'm no fan of Hannity, but he seems like a reasonable polite and civilized person, and does have some liberal friends, no doubt Savage is much brighter than him (except Savage seem to have 0 iq when it come to people skills). I listened a little to Savage today, and was appalled to hear him saying that the guy that killed the 3 people in the Jewish Community Center, most likely did it because the Cliven Bundy situation, pushed him over the edge. Are you kidding me, how disgusting, Savage is soo tough on crime, now he is going to try to excuse his racist who was a KKK member, because Savage thinks the Federal government overstepped their bounds. I'm a liberal to middle of the road Democrat, however I cannot find any excuse or sympathy for anyone who decides to kill innocent people in cold blood, no matter their political bend. How disgusting, there is no excuse for that. This is the reason I do not find any redeeming qualities in Savage and his show.

  16. Michael Savage is a prince among men. Misunderstood in his genius as genius always is. He says what we all say at our dinner tables but he broadcasts it. He is the voice of the real American.

  18. Oh my, look at these comments.

    They remind me of the fable titled Monkey and the Parrot that was written by a social alchemist named Uri Sucker.

    As the monkey and the parrot fought over which was better, a banana or a cracker, the sly spit slurping sloth would slowly move his hand into their pockets and take what little change they had left.

    Soon the monkey and the parrot had no money to buy neither a banana nor a cracker with, leaving them both hating one another in the same tree that was decorated with stars and stripes.

    Chuckling, the spit slurping sloth slowly slithered from the tree to count all the money he was able to grab from the Monkey and Parrot.

    And what is the moral of the story? Well, for 19.95 you can buy the book and find out.

    Sincerely

    Uri Sucker

  22. Michael Savage is no different than a lot of 'successful' people in our industry. He's full of himself, insecure, and obnoxious. I don't care how intelligent or well educated he might be, listening to him is an exercise in annoyance. He's obviously a very dysfunctional, needy person, and that has nothing to do with his off the cuff political and social views. The fact that carnival barkers such as Michael Savage are on the air is one of many reasons why I absolutely despise the 'business' of broadcasting.

      Mike WON the race the first time around at KSFO. Most of the rest of the alleged "talent" are gone except for the Boss's wife fired and picked up again, and bimbo in the booth turned weekend warrior. One had an on air meltdown and never showed up again like the chauffeur T.C. who swapped morning/drive time slots with mike. The Jazz Man J.E. went into a tirade over Compassionate Conservative then quit radio after being cut from 3 to 2 hours to expand Mike's show. Moustached Gun Nut G.M. was never to be heard from again.

      You "in our industry" seems like you feel very insecure about yourself and your worth, you feel inferior in comparing to Michael as a man with all of his accomplishments, and you are very annoyed & feels extremely JEALOUS of Michael's success.

      Since you "in our industry" and "absolutely despise the business of broadcasting", why are you in there or were there? Sounds like you are a big cry baby raging in your heart over Michael's ultimate triumph in broadcasting.

      WHY? ...because you "in our industry" did not get a piece of the pie? WHY?...because you "in our industry" did not receive the recognition you feel that's due you? BOO HOO, poor little ol carnival barker you.

  23. I know sometimes he is rude and obnoxious, but I can understand why, it's the infantile brain of some of the people that call is show, I can relate to his rudness, because I too have no tolerance for ignorant people or those who just don't get it.
    I love listening to him for the past 10 years because I have leaned alot from him and I find him very entertaining.
    His insite on the politcal status of this nation is right on target. I do wish he was wrong but I'm afraid he's not.
    I am in his age group and I have seen many changes in my country and I too, don't recognize the country I was born in.
    Why aren't the politicians standing up for our constitution, which is what made this country great in the first place. they just keep changing it or ignoring it to meet there own agenda. I'm sick of it. Liberals wake-up and see how you have ruined this once great country.
    I would march any day of the week against the policies they are raming down our throats. We did so in the sixties against the veitnam war, but the young people today either don't have any backbone or are just brain-washed by all the Liberal bull-sh_t, they hear in schools and at home.
    Michael Savage, I hope you live to be 100 years old so the new generation can open there eyes to the truth the light, and the better way of the American we use to have.

Used to be a Democrat, like my dad , who taught me hard work all his life as a teamster. Until I grew up and found out the teamsters are crooked and so are the Democrats...... Republicans for that matter too!!! I wish he could put on a little clip of Curtis Mayfield..... This is my country. I used to laugh at the lyrics when I was young, because it was pretty much for the black population I guess, but now when I play it, I got to thinking, this is for everyone now with this shit we have for our government. Last time we checked, these scum were supposed to be working for us. I'm just a white guy in northern California. Check out the lyrics.
