So who are you, Chris Baker, and why are you on my radio station?
I first started coming to Omaha when I was a road comic working at the Funny Bone back when it was located on West Dodge next to Russo’s Music. I used to stare in the windows looking at the guitars between shows.
Always liked it here; it always felt right.
Started in Omaha radio here at KKAR, working closely with political powerhouse Chuck Walker, and radio legend Steve Brown. Worked at 101.9 the Edge and had the greatest time on the radio a guy could have.
Met my wife here, got married here, and was part of the broadcast team during the incredible ’97 National Championship Husker football season. (I even “acquired” Peyton Manning’s mouthpiece after the Orange Bowl. Attempts to clone him as a Husker recruit have been, thus far, unsuccessful.)
Most of my greatest moments in my life in the last 20 years have happened in this town.
Like I said, it always felt right.
My show works like this...
We talk about stuff, life, news and then I tell you what I think and you tell me what you think, and we talk about it.
Where do I stand on the big issues?
Let’s get these out of the way;
I don’t like state taxes.
I’m ready to start a Miley Cyrus meltdown pool.
I don’t like Communists. Period.
I want my kids to succeed in life so they can keep “me” living to the standard which I’m accustomed since they owe me. (That’s my kids, not yours.)
I like guns with 30 round magazines.
I have to take my son Geronimo ice fishing.
Trannies are mental patients.
America is the greatest country in the world.
I know more about women than any man on the planet.
We have to do our best; we owe this generation’s veterans and soldiers that.
There we go, that should cover it for now.
Oh…wait a minute: Jerry Jones is the biggest gas bag in professional football.
I think we can end the debate over whether or not the President is a supporter of
An administration who took great care to cover up all religious symbols for the Presidents speech at Georgetown University in order to (as his advance team claimed) “in order to have a neutral backdrop” which they do regularly can only lead me to one conclusion; they endorse terrorism.
Arafat was nothing more than a thug. A ruthless, liar who polluted the minds of the Palestinian people and encouraged these people to sacrifice their lives and souls, because they believed he had their best interest at heart. He was the father of modern day terrorism and in reality, nothing more than a thief. He looted the world community for billions of dollars that were given to help the poor Palestinian people and while they lived (and still live in) poverty and ignorance, he lived like a king.
He was a thief and a thug who is responsible for the deaths of millions.
President Bill Clinton helped negotiate a peace plan with Ehud Barak that gave this thug everything he wanted and he rejected it. Arafat rejected it because he knew that if he accepted it, his gravy train of cash could dry up.
Like all Tyrants, he needed ignorant people brainwashed into being hopeless victims, to hold on to power.
It is a disgrace.
