While Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani hosted a weekly radio show on news/talk radio 77 WABC-AM. In The New York Times
, writer Michael Powell has written an amusing article on the current presidential candidate's time on-the-air. Powell says: "Giuliani the Presidential Candidate is a pasteurized fellow who favors smiles and reasoned talk and self-deprecating humor...But to listen to a Giuliani sampler — 55 taped hours of his old radio program, which ran from 1994 to 2001 — is to hear the uncensored and unbowed Mr. Giuliani, an irascible figure familiar to millions of New Yorkers."
This article also features archived audio clips of Giuliani from the show commenting on topics such as illegal immigration, assault weapons, Governor Pataki, Ken Starr and President Clinton, police directing traffic, cleaning up after dogs and my personal favorite: ferrets. Full Article and Audio.
