Quote of the Day (Mike Francesa, on Sports Talk Radio Listeners)

“They [radio listeners] hear every emotion you have. They hear the days you're really happy, the days you're really angry, the day you might be without a care in the world. But more than that, they can take you everywhere. They're in the car with you — on the way to work, on the way home. They can take you with them when they're lying there ready to go to sleep, when they get up in the morning, when they go to the beach, when they're on the couch. When I'm talking, I think of myself talking to each person. I envision people on the highway. I envision people in their cars. I envision how people are listening. I envision a lot of them, but I envision them one at a time.”—Sports talk radio personality Mike Francesa, “Mike Francesa Still Believes in the Power of Radio” (interview by Jay Caspian Kang), New York Times Magazine, Aug. 26, 2018
