A treat for JD Hayworth fans: Mon. 7-10 am AZ time

“Red White & Blue” for “Blue Minnesota!”

Longtime broadcaster and former Congressman JD Hayworth — seemingly banned from the Arizona airwaves, unless he is guest hosting a nationally syndicated show — returns to radio tomorrow, again far from the Grand Canyon State.

On Monday, Oct. 8, Hayworth will host on the legendary WCCO, Minneapolis. He can be heard from 7-10 am, AZ Time. Listen live at wccoradio.radio.com (click the “Listen Live” box in the upper right corner of the web page.)

Minnesota’s reputation in recent years — Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty notwithstanding — has been “Deep Blue.”  In fact, Minnesota was the lone state President Reagan failed to carry in his 1984 reelection, as voters in the “Land of Ten Thousand Lakes” opted for native son, Walter Mondale…keeping his name afloat in Political Trivia, as the lone Major Party Nominee to carry just one state — the one he called “home.”

Might Hayworth end up calling Minnesota his “Broadcasting Home?” It’s apparently a greater possibility than finding an Arizona station with the guts and good sense to put JD to work.

Blacklisting a Conservative Republican in a supposedly Republican state…of all the things that could be said, we’ll state the obvious: It’s a damn shame.

    Thanks for this head’s up! You can bet I’ll be tuned in. JD was the best drive time radio host in Arizona! Listened to him every day on my way home from the office and always learned something in addition to being entertained.

    This is great news! I’m a die-hard J.D. fan! Can’t wait to hear his voice and wisdom again! Will be tuned in all three days.

    Thanks for the info on the show times and how to tune in.

    I’m listening to JD right now. He’s educating listeners once again, talking about the cordiality that existed in Washington D.C. years ago among senators of the Republican and Democrat parties. His examples of the way liberal Minnesota senator Hubert Humphrey and conservative Arizona senator Barry Goldwater interacted with one another was instructive. Unfortunately, we have gone down a vicious path with the passage of time as we witnessed with the recent senate confirmation hearing of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. There is no more cordiality in DC.

    A big thank you to SRAZ for providing the link to hear JD!

    Love listening to JD again! He’s knowledgeable on the entire spectrum from politics to sports and has invited listeners to call in with whatever is on their mind. Most others can’t deal with more than what they have prepared for.

    Thanks for giving us this access to our “recovering congressman.” Wish he was back on the air locally where I could listen to him in the car. He’s the best!

    It certainly is a damned shame! Not only great on the airwaves, but as a person and dear friend!
