Chicago - Former Cicero Town President Betty Loren-Maltese says she wants to pursue a career as a radio talk show host.
Betty Loren-Maltese — the former Cicero town president recently released from prison — is scheduled to co-host on WVON radio Monday. Whatever you think of the idea of yet another felon behind a Chicago radio mike, there's a bright side:Mary Schmich Chicago Tribune
At least she's a woman.
Agreed! More woman felons are needed on our Chicago airwaves = Fresh Air! NPR for Betty Loren Maltese. I get a huge kick out of Betty! Hell, I'd even drop an envelop stuffed with nickels to support "Listener and Federal Government Sponsored Radio! WBEZ!"
Shoot, Mayor Betty was an employee of the Federal Government and has been thoroughly vetted. She knows the works and I'm not talking about a Palermo's thin Crust - Insider Politics, Systemic Racism, Gay and Lesbian Life Issues, Convicted Radio Hosts
Imagine - if you will:
BLM- "This is ( cough) Fresh Air with Betty Loren Maltese, with my guest WVON Host and former Club Fed Alum Cliff Kelley - Chicago's Gay and Lesbian Friend of the Community Hall of Famer. First off Cliff, I need to ask you this question - it is standard NPR policy and practice - Studs Terkel? Wasn't he a Treasure?"
CK- "That he was, Betty."
BLM- ( Cough, hack) Cliff, ( cough) disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gets on WLS every hour on the eights - what's with that? He has not even been convicted and yet a Chicago Radio Station has given him a spot when he wants it -when he wants it."
CK- " Betty it makes you wanna holler and go Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm."
BLM- "Cliff, ( cough, cough, hack) I see see this as an affront to the Gay Lesbian Community, the African American Community, and to women everywhere. Now, I am a breeder, but I stand in solidarity with every oppressed minority.( cough, cough, cough hack) I gotta lay off these Ginny Slims. (cough)
CK -"Betty, I stood the time for doing the crime and there were plenty of others that should have put on DOC jumpsuits, but for race, gender and lifestyle hegemony controlled by whitey."
BLM - "We'll be back ( hack, hack, cough) with more Fresh Air!"
Sponsor Voice Over - "If you are making that first uncomfortable and life-changing move and suing the Chicago Police Department and the Cook County States Attorney because you are in Pontiac State Prison and you'd really like that new Mercedes-Benz G-Class 'an all the Trim that it can hold,G'- speak to the Law Pros at G.
