Relentless Verbal War in the Morning

Those of you still mourning the loss of Willie Clark at KSTP can take heart in this announcement from KSCJ in Sioux City about their newest radio show:

The Nash and Clark show offers an odd look at life from a pair unlike anything else on the radio today. Candice Nash and Willie Clark have been called the modern day Bickersons. The show's unmarried protagonists spend nearly all their time together in relentless verbal war. Brash, dangerously opinionated, wildly refreshing, Nash and Clark can be heard weekday mornings from 10:05 - 10:50 on Talk Radio 1360 KSCJ.
I think they're only given 45 minutes for the show because human beings can only stand so much wild refreshment before they go into shock and cardiac arrest.

Let's recount the other reasons were supposed to listen: an odd look at life, bickering, relentless verbal war, and brash, dangerous opinions. OK, that sounds like a pretty good start. But they ain't getting me to listen unless they can add some incoherent screaming, savage personal insults, vicious threats of physical violence, and uncontrollable sobbing. Something like the old Hugh Hewitt shows when he had Peter Beinart on once a week.

Also note their emphasis on the show's "unmarried protagonists". Knowing radio as I do, this is obvious foreshadowing. Within six months, expect a very special episode of Clark and Nash when the two get married on air. Followed by an announcement of their new show, expanded to a power packed 60 minutes. You thought they hated each other before, wait until they get married! Fireworks and fisticuffs guaranteed! Don't you dare miss it!
