I used to listen to Coast to Coast and I liked it a lot better when it was more about the Paranormal. I remember during the waning days of the Bush Era, people would come on and saw how Bush was going to introduce National ID Cards, make a North American Union and keep onto power by declaring martial law. None of that ever happened. I have never heard of Ground Zero by the way.

Ground Zero runs the hour before Coast to Coast in a lot of markets.

The host, Clyde wouldn't really say what he believed one way or the other but he at least theorized about conspiracies.

Yea.

These guys are running a business, they need to sell adds and get people to fork over money at conventions and stuff. They need to alienate no one to keep the biggest audience they can. So they are open to exploring any issue but agree to nothing so they don't look like to fools to thouse who don't buy a particular conspiracy. Open to everything believing nothing too specific or whack.

I remember Clyde talking the business side of the radio game, it's rough. You get a chance in a new market and if you don't perform your gone. Money isn't great in late night crazy talk if you aren't in a lot of markets. I'm sure threading the needle to keep as many nuts happy as you can is a fine art.
