Over-rated IMHO. Aircraft shapes frequently inaccurate.

Of all the people mentioned in this thread, Rush Limbaugh is the one you’ve never heard of?Admittedly he’s not that famous in the UK, but he’s had a massive effect on US society for decades with his extreme talk radio show.

Surely you answer your own question don't you? How many Americans would have heard of Steve Wright or Johnnie Walker if it was then who had passed away? Note: I do realise neither Wright or Walker would quite fall into 'extreme' broadcasters, but you get my point I'm sure.
