Michael Savage reveals the personal origins of his talk radio calling in new book
Savage spoke with Jennifer Harper of The Washington Times, where he opened up about the difficulties in his childhood that made him the radio host he has become:
“I became an entertainer for my mother. I would imitate people. I would put on faces. I would make sounds and noises and I’d wipe the tears away. She would stop crying. She would smile,” Mr. Savage recalled, noting that he relished speaking before a crowd even as a 6-year-old.
“When I spoke with such a clear voice and wasn’t afraid, the little pipsqueak that I was, and the crowd listened to me, I enjoyed the power, and I discovered something. I discovered I could move audiences, and that means I can change people’s fates, as I learned later in life,” he said, characterizing this ability as both a gift and a burden.’
