Range of Strange Equals Good Radio: John B. Wells on Coast to Coast

Seriously, if you want really good music and an interesting radio talk show.......highly recommend John B. Wells on Coast to Coast Am.

Coast to Coast runs here in San Diego on KOGO 600 AM at 10 PM each night with a rerun immediately following at 2AM.

The refreshing thing abut this show--all of the hosts--let the guests talk.....can you believe it--on a talk show?

John B. usually takes the helm from George Noory on the weekends and fills in at various times as needed.

Wanted to talk about a particularly interesting show recently on Coast to Coast featuring former Governor Jesse Ventura.  Jesse was talking about his new book...They Killed Our President.

It was good listening because as usual Jesse raised some often overlooked points about the JFK assassination and we were lucky enough to get to hear the opinions of Jesse Ventura and John B. Wells.

Once in a great while we actually get to hear the opinion of the host, and with John B. it is always a special event.

It was fun to hear Jesse and John B. talk about their parents and their childhood and how that affected the formation of their political ideas and their take on the JFK assassination.  Like me, John B. Wells heard about it in school.  Yes, in the 6th grade the principal came in to tell the class the President had died---remembering Mr. Gritz and the look on his face it as if it was yesterday.  "People," as he always started out, hands on his hips....trying to give out the information without making it sound to dire.

Many have called in to say they really like John B. Wells and find him a little bit different to listen to because he will say if he is wrong, he will give his own idea, not to often, and he lets the guest talk even if he does not agree.  All of the hosts are polite to the callers--John has a little interaction with the caller with a little different take--it just makes for a good show--and where does he get that music?

The interaction between John B. and Jesse Ventura was particularly informative--the two of them together made for a entertaining and interesting show--agree or disagree--it was a good conversation.

Now, how to listen to Coast to Coast in your area?  There is a website and at the top there is a heading for stations.........that will show you how to find the station where you live.

I missed this really good show so I listened to it on my comp or the podcast or on my phone while I am walking my dog.....I love him to bits but he is the slowest dog in the United States--seriously, he can focus on one blade of grass for five minutes.

Enough about Roeese.......I love Coast to Coast--listen to it every night if I can and I just wanted to tell everyone about this real good show.......no I do not always agree with everything on the show.
