In addition to articles on Kadafi and Camping, the inch-thick pile this day includes a Los Angeles Times story on the California Air Resources Board approving regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, an ABC News story about the Energy Department lending millions to a company that plans to build electric cars — in Finland — and pieces on the Conrad Murray trial.
It's the kind of line-up that appeals to their target audience, 35- to 54-year-olds, many of whom are stuck in their cars during long daily commutes. Kobylt points out that their most regular callers live in the Inland Empire and are angry at just about everything.
Chiampou and Kobylt are not fans of the mainstream media, and The Times is a popular target. The pair have taken particular umbrage at the paper's coverage of their run-in with the National Hispanic Media Coalition and their trip to Occupy L.A., as well as The Times' polling. On this day, their focus is the Orange County Register's coverage of their visit to Fullerton.
Before the show ends, they are back to Kadafi. In the land of talk radio, there are few greater gifts than a dead dictator who said: "Zenga, zenga, dar, dar!"
It means "alley to alley, house to house" — the way Kadafi vowed to search for the opposition rebels. But that doesn't matter to Chiampou and Kobylt. They play the bit over and over for the sheer sound of it.
They mock his hair, his countrymen, his final public appearance — lying dead in a refrigerator unit.
Chiampou speculates about reports that Kadafi had salted away a vast fortune in bank accounts. Kobylt wonders why the strongman stayed in Libya if he had "$200 million and naked Ukrainian nurses?"
"Zenga, zenga, dar, dar!"
And they laugh.
