I’m ready. Are you ready?

Well, this is refreshing.

I’ve been writing blog pieces ever since I was, shall we say, interrupted down the dial on march 31. But starting today, I am pleased to once again post things on a page that is actually attached to a radio station.

On the occasion of my first show on 660 AM The Answer, it occurs to me that there are two kinds of people reading this: those who have been familiar with me for a long time, and those who have not.

To those who have waited for this, all I can say is thank you. I did a little waiting myself, and I did not know exactly where the road would lead. But as it became clear that it led into the studios of this station and the Salem Radio Network, the blessing became apparent immediately, in the form of the people I have met and the approach they want to take to my show and the entire station.

The network shows– Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, Dennis Miller– are among the best in America. If my arrival is the cause for you to discover them, then I am already happy and you will be, too.

And then there is my longtime friend Jon-David Wells, whose “Wells Report” has become a fixture for everyone’s drive home. JD and I will be all over each other’s programs, making sure you know what the longest-serving local issues shows in the market are up to.

Check back here often for blog posts, pictures, show notes and whatever else we think you would like. Producer Susan Cloud will dutifully add things that arise on the show so you will always be able to find things we discover together.

Speaking of discovering things, I can’t describe my enthusiasm for the task we are undertaking and the relationship we now get to resume.

I will always be grateful to Salem and to the station that has now become 660 AM The Answer, for providing a special place for us to watch history unfold before our eyes, and talk about it in the process.

I’m ready. Are you ready?
