Larry Craig to spend 3 hours co-hosting on KBOI Monday, taking calls

Former Idaho GOP Sen. Larry Craig will be on KBOI-670 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, filling in for conservative host Nate Shelman.

Craig will be joined by Wayne Hoffman, executive director of the Idaho Freedom Foundation, and formerly an Statesman political reporter and spokesman for former U.S. Rep. Bill Sali, R-Idaho.

Shelman, who will be vacationing, said Craig will field phone calls and focus on politics, elections and the economy.

Shelman said he doesn’t expect Craig to take questions about his 2007 conviction for misdemeanor disorderly conduct in connection with a sex sting in a men’s room at the Minneapolis airport.

“It’s an understood agreement,” Shelman said. “I don’t think he wants to relive it.”

Craig has phoned in to speak with Shelman since retiring in 2009, but Monday's three hours in the Boise studio will be his first extended appearance.

Both major 1st District Congress candidates will guest host next week: Democratic U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick is on for three hours Wednesday; Republican state Rep. Raul Labrador will appear Thursday.

Sheesh! Just when we all

Sheesh! Just when we all thought he "went away" -- Larry Craig is back? Last thing I want to listen to are Craig comments on elections, the economy, or his political views of "don't ask and don't tell" as we all know that he was the first to "assume and deny".

Larry Craig, Idaho's official GOP Trouser Trawler

It's so sweet to see my lovely Larry come out of the closet again to play. He exemplifies the buffoonery of the Idaho GOP.

He would be perfect for Idaho's GOP Militia in a strapping pair of NAZI era Jackboots.

Getting all hot and

bothered just thinking about it,aren't you?

What exactly are you turned on by?

The homosexual closet?
The extreme buffoonery?
Or the nazi boots and get up?

Oh, it's you.
You are equally turned on by all.
More proof that Craig is living your reality.

Larry honey, we've gotta stop meeting like this

When you talk dirty like this, about GOP buffoon closets, it gets me all hot and bothered. And I love your handle (tee hee), "GrayMatter". It sounds so distinctive and arrogant. Oh, I'm so fluustered...I've gotta goo. Love ya!

As full of stuff as VanVliet's dairy...all y'all


"Say a prayer for the pretender..."-Jackson Browne

Way closer to Van Vliet's diary.

But yeah...

Pairing like people

Interesting, how Larry Craig had his career ended because of his so-called "Gay" agenda, but the pilot in Mtn. Home is suppose to be a hero? What's good for one should be good for the other!

You are getting it mixed up...

If "teh gay" was truly responsible for ending Larry's political career, it was because Republicans wouldn't vote for him any more. The pilot in Mtn Home is a hero to progressives, not Republicans. SO they are similar in that respect; both are seen as abominations to social conservatives.

So Hoffman is your baby and Richert is Luke Skywalker?

Then who's your Dark Master?


Therein outward she has revealed herself not to this day, Jedi.

Heh heh

You said extended.

WHACK! OWWWW! Calm down, Beavis.

How the mighty have fallen

The beginning of the come back.

There is no path

back from Craig's past.


How's it hangin?

Are you still not gay?

When you have an urge you can't scratch, where do you go?

Do you think gay is “an abomination”?

How do you feel about the District Court ruling on Prop 8?

How's your stance these days?

Is Wayne gay?

Not that size matters but how big is your closet?

Would you mind belting out a couple refrains of “Where Eagles Soar”?

Do you still barbershop?

Is this the beginning of your comeback?

Do still think President Clinton is a “naughty naughty boy”?

Do you think all cops are bad or just the one's that railroaded you?

Do you think America has the finest judicial system in the world?

Are you and Wayne naked?

Need your Judas Priest wardrobe repaired, Sis?

Who is YOUR Turbo Lover?

First smart reply yet.

Craig's on a roll (or romp)

I see where he's going to be at a BBQ in support of Brad Little. Supply him his own port a potty.

KBOI uses to be a respected station

Now with the right wing vitriolic talk shows, it's become nothing but a far right wing hate site. Sad.

I remember.

When it wasn't.
Truly sad.

I remember when they played the Platters.

KBOI, the Bravo network of radio, lately, especially with the pro-gay agenda of the morning program!

Old politicians never die

Live from the mens room of Boise Airport. Does he really think we want to hear frpom or about him. One word PATHETIC

Craig on KBOI.................

It may be an "unspoken agreement" between KBOI and former sen. Widestance not to talk about his arrest and not understanding what "pleading guilty" meant to lewd behavior in a public restroom; I made no such agreement and intend to call. Start out supportive to him, then throw the hardball: Is your lovely wife and YOUR {chuckle} kids here to support you, Larry? I bet your on a real short leash these days, have you had that extended honeymoon with your bride, Larry? After all the years you crooned with the Swinging Senators, and only you and your maker knows what else in Washington; you deserve a full retirement, insurance for life, and a long sweet romantic holiday with your wife.......


I'm not sure what's more embarrassing, Fairy Larry's escapades or the devolvement of KBOI into a far right wing echo chamber. Wait, since wide stance Larry is known worldwide and KBOI is just local, I guess the answer would be that the enormous humiliation suffered by the state of Idaho for the repeated re-election of Larry Craig, over decades, should provoke enough shame to banish this guy from the airwaves forever. Unless, of course, you promote drug addled shills and prostitutes for big business who pontificate endlessly without shame on your radio station. It may be bank today, but it's bankruptcy tomorrow KBOI. The tide is turning.

Probably not...McCarthy was over 50 years ago...

fear will always be a profitable stock in trade.

Citadel went bankrupt a long time ago. Look it up.

Did Craig place any limitations on the type of questions he will respond to (as he did when he went on The Daily Show)?

The Craig 'n' Wayne Show.


I see that my question was answered in the original post, which I obviously did not read carefully enough. Apologies.

Nate Shelman may think it's understood that Craig won't take certain calls, but I wonder if all callers will share that understanding.

THREE hours of Larry Craig and Wayne Hoffman? Who on earth could bear such torture?

Their KIN. Use your noodle, chief.
