So, as I said before, I was an instant fan of Dave Schrader when I first heard him on C2C in December so I started listening to Darkness Radio on a daily basis during my morning run. Since then, a bit has changed. Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoy Dave himself but, there are a few things I could do without. #1) The female host who does Paranormal News with him is beyond annoying. So much so, that I'd become irritated to go into detail as to why, so I won't. No, I am not one of those women who just doesn't like other women. My very fav C2C guest is Linda Moulten Howe, and I also adore another top talk radio host who is female that I will not mention here as most hate her. Let's just say I truly appreciate intelligent women that don't rely on sex appeal (you shouldn't sound like you're having phone sex when you're on air) or playing stupid (talk talk giggle giggle talk giggle). #2) The silly banter between Dave and Tim (I think that is his name) can become really tiresome. I guess when I listen to shows in this genre, I expect a certain level of focus and seriousness. The "funny" tangents they go off on together, the joking/teasing they do with eachother (especially when a guest is actually on the line!) really rubs me the wrong way. Often they will be in the middle of an interesting Q&A with a well spoken/great topic guest and just take a sidebar to go at it, and then, to top it off, the humor isn't even funny. Now, I do have a sense of humor. I find funny men sexier than "hot" men and have a healthy amount of stand-up comedy DVDs as I am a huge fan of comedy, but it's just so out of place to me on this type of radio show. Maybe I am to used to, and comfortable with, Art Bell's style, as well as George Knapp's, that I feel such humor during one of these shows is somewhat insulting to the genre. With that said, I do understand Dave himself has stated Darkness Radio is like Coast to Coast Lite AND, I do appreciate that when he did fill in on C2C he remained focused and serious throughout. Solution? Have Dave Schrader replace George Noory as a permanent host and remain true to the style/form of C2C, and while we're wishing, cut the C2C commercial time by 75%. Thanks.
