Rumpswabs, Hacks, and Moonbats beware, Howie Carr is on the air. [dri]

Like many Conservatives, I grew up listening to AM talk radio. Before the advent of the Internet and Fox News it was the only outlet available to hear political views that weren’t first fed through a politically correct, Leftist filter. Rush Limbaugh was the standard bearer of talk radio. His insights into the politics of the Right and the Left were unequaled. His show was broadcast on hundreds of stations across the country. Others tried to follow his syndication model and broadcast nationally, a few succeeded while most remained local and served only their home markets. The difference in scope between the national and the local shows was pronounced. The syndicated hosts covered national politics while the local hosts were more provincial, focusing on statewide issues.

Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr was different. His local show had the sound and feel of a nationally syndicated talk show. Since 1994, Carr, a bestselling author and columnist for the Boston Herald has used keen political insight, historical perspective, and humor to mock the “rumpswabs, hacks, and moonbats” of the Left. Show guests have included such diverse personalities as original Beatles drummer Pete Best, Bill Cosby, Ann Coulter, as well as most GOP candidates for president including Donald Trump. Carr is also a contributing writer for Breitbart.com and a guest host for both Mark Levin and Dennis Miller.

Like Ace of Spades HQ, Carr utilizes an entertaining mix of both politics and humor. Regular features include the Death Pool, in which callers predict who the next celebrity will “not be down for breakfast” and the “Chump Line” in which listeners can record humorous messages to be played on the air.

Carr is a true Tea Party Conservative who does not pull his punches whether excoriating a Leftist Progressive or exposing a GOP RINO. His show airs Monday through Friday from 3-7pm EST. It can be live streamed here or via the Tunein app.
