Listening to Steve Nisky yesterday he somewhat alluded that the lady caller who calls up reciting poetry was no longer welcomed by the station. I was never to crazy about her calls but I am not into poetry. Does anyone know why her calls are no longer welcomed?

she was asked not to anymore by Morgan.
...just as the "mystery man" was told not to...free speech comes with terms

I am really dissapointed if that is the case, once again I am not a fan of poetry but many people are fans. I respect Mr. Morgan but this is a bad decision. So many of the calls just repeat the same thing everyday and they seem not to want a conversation but just continue to talk and talk and talk.

Mr Morgan if you read this, you really should reconsider your decision.

What's wrong with poetry? Chicken soup for the soul!

I once liked a poem that I read
The rhymes danced like elves in my head
To my utter surprise
I opened my eyes
To the joys of a poem before bed

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew

Dntw8up,
What would you do without Wiki? You should cite your "Stuff":P

On the original topic, if a radio station is privately owned, the owners have every right to decide who can and can not appear. Free speech only means that the government can't restrict the rights of the people.

stephyjh,
I think you should check out what the FCC thinks about your statement as to " who can and can not appear". Radio stations operate under a license. A license is not a right, it can be suspended or revoked by the Govt.

Has Morgan's show grown that much? I can remember listening when he was begging people to call his show.

Not that it matters to me, but I'd venture to say the poetry woman was probably one of those early listeners who supported his show by calling in.

From the posts above Morgan is kicking her ass to the curb and her poetry too? Sad, so Morgan used her?

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

I listen quite regularly. When the poetry lady came on, I would change channels until she was off. I found her poetry boring and long winded. I felt Steve Nisky sounded like a goof always gushing over her.

I applaud Roger Morgan's decision.
