COMING SOON TO A RADIO NEAR YOU: Merle Haggard wants a radio talk show. Ken Layne has the details, including quotes by Haggard that are somewhere between circular and Mobius loop. As Layne says, “That would be some kind of talk show”!

I’m still holding out for the Jim Traficant Hour. If Mumia Abu Jamal can give commencement speeches from jail, why can’t Trafficant have a radio show from there?

Or maybe TV. It’s got to do better than Donahue.

UPDATE: Orrin Judd emails that “Merle was on Imus in the Morning a couple years ago and he had his hat off. An engineer was walking buy a tossed a few coins in it for the poor bum”!
