Best New Radio Show - 2002
Working Assets Radio
Perhaps it's not surprising that Working Assets Radio would have to reach far outside Northern California to find a daily talk show host who could voice a steady leftist line without stumbling into clinical irrelevance. On a new daily talk show scheduled against KQED's Michael Krasny, preciously British-accented Laura Flanders has found a snug-fitting San Francisco shtick as the quirky European Leftist Who Knows How. While Flanders isn't the skilled interviewer Krasny is, her patter never fails to include the latest entertaining opinions from Europe. Working Assets Radio successfully avoids the static whine that can be heard on the Bay Area's complaint-oriented radio stations -- we're not naming names, but when you read the call letters of one, it sounds like "Cape Faux."
