  2. how come a post got removed it would of been interesting to see what the poster said about warren ballentine, what happened to freedom of speech? I thought it was about keepin it real in the 09.

  3. The post was removed because it had nothing to do with Warren Ballentine or opening an account with a Black owned bank on Friday. There was no connection to the story, therefore it was removed. -Admin. Urban Radio Nation

  4. I just moved from ATL, GA to Murrieta, CA and I can't find Warren's show on the radio. What station and time does Warren and Rev. Al Sharpton's show come on in Southern CA. I live between San Diego and LA.

  5. Trish, Al Sharpton and Warren Ballentine talk shows will only be available on line for you. There are no California stations that carry their show.

  6. I think Warren Ballentine needs to go "sit on the porch." I'm sick and tired of all the blacks with big fat chips on their shoulders. Get over it! You are the people that keep the racist thing going and going and going. Get a life why don't you? When faced with the truth, all you can do is say something like, "Get back on the porch" as Warrend said to Juan Williams. Shame on him. Like Bill Cosby keeps saying, you need to get over blaming the "whites" for everything that's wrong in your life. Take responsibility for yourselves. Do someting positive instead of slinging crap.Think about it.

  7. I live in Florence, South Carolina. For the past 6 months I have been enjoying the Warren Ballentine radio show. Within the last two three weeks however, Warren Ballentine as well as Rev Sharpton's shows are not longer part of the radio station's format.

    Please help. In South Carolina, what station is the Warren Ballentine aired? Thank You So Very Much!!!
