Michael Savage Nominated for National Radio HOF; Category: 'Spoken Word'; Which Is About Time

 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.

  6. Pass it on to all of your friends to text the word "SAVAGE" to 36500. The more people that do that, the better his chances of winning.

  10. I have been listening to Micheal Savage for 10 years straight I cannot find a talk show host who is as diverse as he. This is what makes him so interesting. He doesn't speak anything but the truth, and that is what puts him apart from others. He isn't beholding to anyone. God Bless you Dr. Micheal Savage, as you will never let us down.

  13. Michael Savage got my vote! He is one of the lone voices and crusaders against this corrupt sick extreme leftist controlling government and the "good old boys club" corrupt republican establishment! I have great respect for him.
