Mark taylor & carol platt liebau

Hugh Hewitt is coming back tomorrow from a short time off his radio show. In his stead, he's had Mark Taylor & Carol Platt Liebau substitute for him today and yesterday, at least, possibly a day I missed as well.
I really enjoy listening to their flavor of the show. They get into some very spirited debates and it's interesting to hear them out; medical marijuana, decriminalized marijuana, assisted suicide, legalized prostitution and others.
Fraters Libertas has a little poll going on worst host. For some reason these two fine people are far outpacing NARN and Eric Hogue. I can only guess that those participating in the poll are annoyed by "the Ozzie & Harriet" of talk radio because they prefer a radio host who is complete control, maintains the upper hand over callers and listeners and exudes an aire of supremacy. Mark & Carol are great sports for conducting their show with enough humility to agree to disagree with one another and let the pieces fly where they may.
I know I was entertained because I found myself laughing out loud several times. The other exercisers at the gym must have thought I was raving mad.
No, I'm not. I'm just listening to right wing shock jocks on the Hugh Hewitt Show.

    I'm with you, PMB. I've always liked Taylor and I think Liebau is getting better every show. She destroyed a caller's arguments about that British "memo" that the libs say merits impeachment of GWB. And she explained it well so that I think I can now explain to the moonbats orbiting me.

    I voted for Eric Hogue. He's not bad really, just a very very average host.

    Interesting take PMB. I can't stand the pairing. Liebau's voice is like a stick in the eye.

    Then the interest is shared around full circle. I made a mental note the last time Carol was on air that I find her voice to be pleasing. This is a subject we each carry our own barometers for, obviously.
    If you notice, you'll hear that Carol's voice is rather restrained. She avoids shrillness. She avoids monotony and superfluity.
    Carol's a terrific radio personality, imho, because her vocal style does not impede the thoughts coming from her very finely trained lawyer mind. When she speaks, she does so with clarity and precision. And she's a woman, so I enjoy hearing her tones.

    A lot of us forget how difficult it is to sustain a radio voice's likability. I think it's human nature to grow weary of hearing the same voice too long. We begin to notice flaws. And flaws are something we all possess.
