Programming note: This morning, Thursday, at 8.30am Eastern Steyn will be checking in with "Fox & Friends" to remember Rush Limbaugh. Later he'll be in for Tucker for a full hour on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", and tomorrow he'll back behind the no longer so Golden EIB Microphone for "Open Line Friday".
~On Wednesday night, Mark joined Tucker to share a few thoughts on the end of an era. Rush was beloved by his listeners:
"Radio is a very intimate medium," he said. "You are driving around in your truck and it's like the guy is in your head for three hours. But Rush had a connection beyond that.
"I had a couple of guys working at my house for months, as is the New Hampshire way. Every day at 11:59 [a.m.], they would hang the transistor radio on the chimney and blast it, [and] sit up on the roof, listening to Rush. Nobody wanted to miss that. Incredible. Nothing like it."
He was also beloved by his staff:
"He was a fantastic employer and a brilliant friend to many, many people. That is why people came and joined the EIB Network. We know there are big-name celebrities who can't keep a secretary for six weeks," he told Carlson. "People came to the EIB Network and they never left."
