Bob Grant was the nastiest talk radio host I know of and it's too bad he didn't die 40 years ago.  By their own admission, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck and other conservative freaks  admired Grant and that should tell you all you need to know about either of them.  Here are some excerpts from a 1995 FAIR article:
50,000 Watts of Hate
Bigotry Is Broadcast on ABC Radio's Flagship

...conservative politicians like U.S. Sen. Al D'Amato, New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and New York Governor-elect George Pataki have called in to Grant's show to thank him for his support, often saying that it made a crucial difference in their elections.

Grant repeatedly expresses his belief in the scientific form of racism called eugenics, and frequently promotes the "Bob Grant Mandatory Sterilization Program."

Grant says he's been praying for the death of Magic Johnson (10/1/92): "Why is it taking so long for the HIV to go into full-blown AIDS?"

He remarked after a gay pride parade (6/29/94), "Ideally, it would have been nice to have a few phalanxes of policemen with machine guns and mow them down."
