I heard Huckabee for the first time on a low rated Vegas radio station that just flipped from country to talk. I did not recognize his voice at first because it was smoother and deeper than his FOX TV show. Guess they can do magic with digital enhancement. People were right though, show seemed kind of boring to me, but to each his own.
Are you really surprised the show is boring? I didn't think there was any way he would sound good doing talk radio, just like Fred Thompson.
It's amazing to me that radio execs still don't seem to have much intuition when it comes to talent. They just figure they'll throw it against the wall and see if it sticks. If you ever wondered whether execs really do take talent for granted, there's your answer. Apparently anybody with name recognition is qualified to do a talk radio show.
Seriously, WHO could possibly have thought that Huckabee was suddenly going to develop the kind of bigger-than-life personality that you need in talkradio---and I'm not just picking on conservative hosts: I found it equally as odd that anyone actually thought Jerry Brown would be the least bit successful as a radio host back in the mid 90s. He sounded horrible.
