Rush is irreplaceable. One-of-a-kind and all conservative media agree.

I've been a Buck Sexton listener since his first Blaze days... his Saturday show (Testudio/Shields High/Commie Bear etc.) and IMO he's a great guy to attempt to fill the timeslot. Smart, opinionated, fast on his feet, excellent at extemperaneous speech. He's partnered for this effort, but he could do a one man show without guests if necessary.

The King is Dead, Long Live the King.

He singlehandedly took AM radio out of the dustbin and turned it into a Conservative powerhouse. Progressives move on to the latest greatest technology. Conservatives see value regardless of hype. Long Live Rush.

From what I recall, he became such a juggernaut it just became sheer economics - if you didn't have him in that slot on your station, you might as well not exist during those hours. And advertisers fought to get his slot, because it could make or break local business.

He had a hell of a run. Iconic run. Historical run - his name will be remembered.

Even if you had a dad more importantly if you didn’t Rush was a guide for life and kept many men on the right path.
Always humbled and appreciative for what he had and how people loved him. A total gem worthy of signing the original Declaration of Independence but his place in time was even more important. His ability to see through the BS is applicable to so many facets not just politics. It’s a recipe for knowing who you are as a human and being able to deal with the lost masses. I love to hear his voice even still when they do segments with the guest hosts. I hope they have a reference library that’s easily searchable on any subject for generations into eternity.

Carry_Your_Name 11 points ago +11 / -0

It’s not just him, but his brilliant and patriotic callers. I’d say that’s the best part of his show, the conversation with his listeners, the most informed and insightful audience. He didn’t make interviews with celebrity guests who were already on ten other radio shows and/or podcasts, he talked with us!

God bless Rush. He was a light in the darkness.

FireannDireach 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yeah, I would agree - and from what I remember, it was how he dealt with nasty callers, too, which he got a lot of, early on. How he dealt with them with humor and intelligence. The only time I remember him letting a caller getting to him was over his father's death, but he shook it off pretty fast.

Carry_Your_Name 4 points ago +4 / -0

Usually those were screened out by his producer, Mr Snerdley, but somehow once in a while there were still a few bad apples who passed him and went through. The vast majority were smart patriots from the working class, some brought up interesting theories, and some even gave a passionate speech that could get a round of thunderous applause at a campaign event.

Nimblenavigator1 2 points ago +2 / -0

He was never rude to callers, and always kept his cool. Rather than call them an idiot, shove an opinion down their throats, belittle them, etc. he’d probe the caller to explain their reasoning, evaluate their premises, etc.

It’s easy to tell somebody they are wrong. It is incredibly difficult to make somebody realize that they are wrong. Regardless, he did it every single day for 30+ years with incredible wit and grace. Motherfucking legend.

Carry_Your_Name 5 points ago +5 / -0

He’s a trailblazer. He created the format of talk show radio. Before him there was just news flash and music on the radio.

When Rush announced he had cancer, I hoped he would have transitioned Steyn into that slot.

12
Suckitreddit 12 points ago +12 / -0

I didn’t think Steyn wanted to do it. Doing 15 hours of radio a week is a full time job... but Steen is my favorite show host—really gets free speech as he had been fighting for it in Canada for a decade w Maclean’s magazine and the global warming BS.

None of those guys have Rush’s personality. The only one I’ve found that comes close is Quite Frankly, way more chill, and different personality, but Frank gets the format where the other guys are just soapboxing.

rush was great and one of the greatest of all time in all media.

but i miss the days of rush before his huge contract in the late 1990s when he was making jokes and winking at us with the clinton body count like vince foster and commerce secretary ron brown. he was pretty out there like alex jones until that huge contract that pushed him to dial it back on the clinton body count and other 'conspiracy theories'.

A local radio host said it best: all others who host call in shows rely on the back-and-forth between host and caller.... Rush could go hours and not have one caller and the show wouldnt lose any steam.

I like Levin, but he is not nearly as light hearted. I do appreciate how academic he is. Rush just can't be replaced even with a combination of 6 other guys. It is a massive loss we are going to feel for decades. I may not see anything that fills this void in my lifetime. Not that there is ever a good time, but this had to be the worst time to lose a legend.

DJTrump 3 points ago +3 / -0

I liked Levin a lot. He had to tone things down a lot, out of fear of having a heart attack on live radio. I still like him but before then, he would spit fire and tell it like is, it was greatness.

It's pretty much dead where I live. There are no stations worth listening to, haven't been for years. I got XM back when it launched to get away from constant commercials and the same corporate playlists over and over. It was great, until Sirius bought them and ruined it.

I don't know anyone who listens to the radio, at all.

AM radio may be dead without Rush...but I believe that Rush’s popularity helped foster podcasts.

There are so many great ones...Warroom, national pulse, Bongino, levin, the ones on the Cold War( link above) are so well done—fascinating stuff. history...so many great podcasts it’s like taking master classes sometimes.

Just curious, what about Sirius do you think made XM worse? I always listened to Sirius and loved the music stations and still do.

3
FireannDireach 3 points ago +3 / -0

I don't think, I know what they made worse.

One, they removed a lot of channels that I listened to.

Two, they compressed the streams from the satellite to get more bandwidth, and the quality degraded to MP3 quality. No, seriously, XM was almost CD quality, the record industry was freaking out how good it was. They made a lot of claims of launching new satellites and improving the quality after the merger, and of course they did none of it.

Three, they stopped investing in new tech and receivers, and the ones they sold were just not good. XM innovated, Sirius stopped that completely. Don't get me started on their shit web interface and web player.

Four, Ads and obnoxious DJs started showing up, after Mel Karmazin showed up, who bragged about how he monetized FM radio, and was going to do the same to Sat radio. And he did. And started the process of throwing huge amounts of money at stars to put their names on the channel.

Five, the deep tracks stopped and corporate playlists reared their ugly heads, and it was the same music over and over. The exact thing I got into Sat radio to get away from. And, they were playing the "radio friendly" edits.

It basically became digital FM/MP3 radio and were adding all of the things I was trying to escape. My hard drive in my car is better quality. There's no reason to pay for the service.

2
BehindEnemyLinesCA26 2 points ago +2 / -0

Two, they compressed the streams from the satellite to get more bandwidth, and the quality degraded to MP3 quality.

I way understand this point. Compared to listening to Apple Hi-Res audio, SXM sounds like complete crap now. It got a little better when they launched that new satellite recently, but still, awful sound quality is definitely a flaw.

Three... Don't get me started on their shit web interface and web player

Yeah... I get that haha. Its horrible and crashes a lot.

Five, ...corporate playlists reared their ugly heads

I get this too. I feel like I hear the same song at certain times of day when I listen to the same channel. Some DJs are different, like if you catch Jim Ladd, who has a freeform radio show, you hear different stuff.

Okay I way understand all your quals with satellite. I am younger and only listened post merger, so I get all these points.

2
FireannDireach 2 points ago +2 / -0

Cool. It's fine, it can be hard to understand what it was, compared to now. Especially the audio quality - I could hook it up to my stereo and it was as good as CDs, in the car, and at home. I had a really good stereo back then, and my XM unit got more use than anything else on it.

1
Fenianlad 1 point ago +2 / -1

It’s the same fucking songs over and over and over and over. And the DJs are an absolute abortion.

1
FireannDireach 1 point ago +1 / -0

Right? When I first got XM, it was incredible. The only time I've ever heard Frank Zappa on the radio, the Deep Tracks channel was playing him.

The first couple of years of XM were great. I had the portable unit (which worked really well), and my then gf and I fought over it constantly, until I got her one for xmas. :)

Rush didn’t endorse Trump until after he landed almost all of the delegates. The only true people who gave the Trump movement steam were the early posters and meme creators on The Donald.

Snerdley 31 points ago +32 / -1

My perspective as one skeptical of Trump (a "NYC Republican"), I was extremely frustrated with Rush's support for Trump prior to Cruze's exit. It was really the only time I doubted Rush's political instincts. In hindsight, I was wrong.

Godspeed Rush!

I never expected a New Yorker to actually be conservative. Hopped on The Donald during primary season for the lulz on liberal Reddit. Almost voted for Rand in the primary because I didn’t trust a New Yorker. But I voted Trump. But only one month into his presidency I decided…I’ll take a bullet for that man.

I had a lot of Republican friends during the primary who doubted Trump or didnt trust him for whatever reason. I am longtime supporter/fan of Trump before he even walked down the golden escalators, so the moment he announced he was running, I knew he would be an amazing President. And boy, did he prove to be the best president ever!

4
HuggableBear 4 points ago +4 / -0

I knew he would knock it out of the park on the fiscal side, but I was worried about his liberal social views. Turns out he found the right people to advise him on that side.

If only he could have found someone to convince him to go as far right as humanly possible and shove it down their fucking throat rather than try to make deals.

Maybe but I understand he liked what Trump was saying almost immediately. I would love to hear his show from back then. I know my Dad who was alive at the time was a daily listener. I asked him in November of 2015 what he thought about Trump and he said he was eager to support many of the candidates, even Trump. I didn't really start paying attention till early 2016 when I found our old home on Reddit. (I mean my Dad was eager, I never heard what Rush said back then)

Personal Rush story: I dumped a girl in college whose dad was a MASSIVE union liberal. Like VP of the AFL-CIO in the state. She was a sweetheart, but there was zero long-term potential there. Although I had a fun time arguing with him.

Went to North Dakota to help my grandpa on the farm a couple weeks after that…no air conditioning in the tractor, HOT summer day, but I had Rush on the radio. And he spent three hours shitting on unions. Long relationship story short: I was smiling ear to ear for the first time in weeks after listening to Rush, and I vowed that day to never get involved with liberal women. I cannot have a partner that’s a communist.

What's really interesting about North Dakota is that one radio station covers the whole state, 55 KFYR.

Eatinglue 9 points ago +9 / -0

I don’t remember what station it was at the time, but today AM1100 (which Rush did a ad plug for as “the blowtorch of the plains”) definitely covers the whole state. That antenna is probably half North Dakota’s electricity use, lol.

In a very certain way, he did. There probably isn't a single conservative voice on radio that did not take a cue from Limbaugh.

clownworld30330 7 points ago +7 / -0

Yeah, but EIB shouldn't die, and his show shouldn't die. I'm not sure he could have found and trained one or more replacements, but it would have been good if he had.

Or maybe not. Proteges have a way of turning on their masters. McStain / Goldwater comes to mind.

3
Sansa_Belt 3 points ago +3 / -0

I think that unfortunately, had he trained a protege, that would have meant on-air time for that person, Meaning less Rush. The neat thing is, is that I truly believe that it wasn't ego that prevented that from happening. He was VERY supportive of others in radio, and the likes of Breitbart in other media.

Buck Sexton and Clay Travis have been handed the reigns (vast array of broadcasters who carried Rush) to succeed The Great One. I think that Buck was hand-picked by Rush. Certainly his opinion was asked by those who can ask such things. Perhaps James Golden (Bo Snerdley) will pen a memoir and provide some insight there.

A big part of his effectiveness was the the simple fact that he started mems/trends in thought. Heck many other shows that broadcast later- in-the-day would base half of their broacast on the events and themes that Rush mentioned on his show.

It's possible that a named successor could end up "turning", perhaps by resentment at not living up to the hype. But I tend to think that picking your replacement is not the route to go when the listeners are going to judge for themselves. And if they reject the chosen one, the legacy could be stained.

Stayed up later than usual one evening talking to my roommate and the Tonight show was on in the background. When it ended, Rush came on. I had no idea who he was. I was about to go to bed and Rush showed the clip of Sinead O'Connor tearing up a picture of the pope on SNL. Rush then pulled out a pic of O'Connor and tore that up. Then he tore up a picture of Jesse Jackson. I found his radio show the next day and never looked back.

The last message (not last words necessarily) that I remember from him was right after the steal, and he said that MAGA will rise again.

The deep state is so deep even Rush underestimated them.

I worked in a small office in the late 80s. One afternoon, one of our salesmen came into the office in a state of euphoria. He ordered me to turn the radio to Rush's show. He was so happy to have something awesome to listen to while driving from sales call to sales call. He said "this is a man who thinks like us." After a few weeks, I was hooked. My two biggest political influences were Buckley and Rush, in that order. I wish Rush would have interviewed Buckley at some point.

Buckley tricked many conservatives. His movement was controlled opposition;he deflected from many topics.

Interestingly, Buckley did interview Rush.

They talked about Anita Hill, feminists and the Washington Redskins. 1992.

Buckley was a true Conservative and was not controlled opposition.

Let us not forget the lessons we learned at the: “LIMBAUGH INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED CONSERVATIVE STUDIES” No our learning shall not stop, the 2020 election proved this just when we thought we seen it all from the left. We whiteness the biggest election fraud we ever seen. Rush always, always talk about election fraud every election cycle. Rush would be proud of everyone getting involved at the grass roots level taking on committee positions, voting out school board morons etc. Rush always said his faith in the American people would never let him down and we are not going to start now.

After 32 years. I’m proud to say at 33 years of age, I was a true Rush baby. I did hate it at 5 years old, but very thankful for grandpa not giving a fuck and listening to it every day.

My local station started playing Dan Bongino a month ago. I’d rather hear Rush replays than him. I’ve been trying to listen to Mark Levin but it’s turned into constant ranting. Rush had talent on loan from God and used it the best way he could.

Levin always seemed like a slightly more sophisticated version of Michael Savage.

Bongino has been a good replacement, but Rush replays? They did that already for months, it's time to move on to something current.

Mark Levin rants are priceless... he calls it like it is. That's why I listen to him!! Everyday at 5, baybee... ;) THE GREAT ONE.

When I remember seeing on Reddit the article declaring Rush’s death and all the celebration and awards it makes me sick to my stomach. Commies only want death to anything that is against them. Rest In Peace Rush.

I could have sworn the host on Friday said that the Limbaugh show would be moved to a different slot or streaming site and continue to be re-broadcast?

They took Rush's program off in Knoxville like a week after he passed away. I found 1470 AM out of Alcoa that plays Alex Jones during lunchtime and other freedom based programs throughout the day.

Thank you God for sending us Rush and taking him back to you. Thank you Rush for your years of amazing hard work and inspirational service to the American Dream as well as your tireless efforts to stand up to evil that has consumed the Democrats. You will be missed by millions of honest people and only despised by your enemies that face eternal hellfire.

God bless you Rush. RIP. I hope someone CAN replace you because you were very much needed. Your biggest problem was you were too damn good at your job.

The only celebrity I ever gave a shit about.

The man is a legend.

Everything we know about talk radio was birthed from his mind.

On another note, does anyone have an architect of his show? I maybe need some listening material.
