Of all the interesting and provocative things that makes me a constant listener to the Michael Savage Show (heard here on KSFO --Noon--3 PM, M-F) is his use of the English language.
Think intense, spoken word, an often lost art on mainstream American commercial radio.
Savage, the bombastic, entertaining, radio raconteur is the king of the spoken word and he's been rewarded for his craft--the San Francisco-based national talk-show host has been nominated for a National Radio Hall-of Fame in the category of Spoken Word On-Air Personality, and public voting runs through June 30.
You can vote for Mike by texting "Savage" to 36500.
I've often marveled at Savage's ability to broadcast an otherwise good to very-good program with his own singular pronunciations and make the show infinitely better.
It's both funny, hilarious and in the case of Savage, wildly unpredictable.
Say the word, "constitution"--this guy says it every day. BORING!
Savage takes the word and uses it his own way..."Connn-STA-TOOOO---Shun" ....A general word like "spokesman" is "Spppppppppooookesman" in the Savage audio dictionary --these descriptions don't do the actual performances their due justice--seriously, you have to actually listen to a show.
