Back in 1985, I was a college student in Sacramento, California, when Rush launched his classic three-hour show to a Northern California audience. How refreshing to hear such a funny, thoughtful conservative so full of life. People wanted to put him in the far-right, evangelical Christian box from the beginning, but such was not Rush. He did not suffer fools, no matter their political or religious beliefs.
In Sacramento, we had a powerful Christian group based in the Capital Christian Center. A couple of years after Rush began broadcasting, a Midwest minister began announcing how you could hear Satanic messages when you play certain songs backward.
