James Golden, better known to tens of millions of Rush Limbaugh fans as “Bo Snerdley,” is set to launch a new iHeartRadio podcast in May that will focus on the late, great conservative talk master who has been credited with saving AM radio.
“It is a tremendous honor to host this tribute podcast series and I will do my very best to make Rush proud and provide his vast audience with a true representation of our beloved host,” Golden told BizPac Review.
The podcast will concentrate on Limbaugh’s behind-the-scenes persona and life “for a really intimate look at the way Rush operated,” host Todd Herman said on-air Monday.
Golden’s podcast is set to launch May 12.
“It will give you a sense of how Rush changed America as we know it with the Golden EIB Microphone, the EIB microphone,” Herman noted, going on to tout Golden as being the ideal person to carry on Limbaugh’s legacy.
“I’ll just tell you, from personal interactions, you would be hard-pressed to find a greater brand ambassador and believer in this radio program and person grateful to you than James/Bo Snerdley,” Herman added.
The additional podcast will come on the heels of a new Saturday radio program Golden recently launched at WABC in New York City, the station that served as the flagship for “The Rush Limbaugh Show” when it launched in 1988 and for many years afterward.
Limbaugh’s long-time producer and call screener during the late conservative talker’s more than 30 years on the air, Golden himself is a formidable radio personality all his own. His Saturday morning program debut on WABC last month was actually more of a return to his roots, as his career really took off at the station, especially after teaming up with Limbaugh.

Golden’s first interview was with Rep. Burgess Owens (R-Utah), who recounted a heartwarming story regarding the first time he ‘met’ Golden and Limbaugh — as a caller to the show.
In his latest show, Golden led off by discussing recent police shootings that have involved young blacks around the country, including another recent one in Minnesota with the backdrop of the Derek Chauvin trial, which was still underway. He went on to juxtapose those incidents, which were made high-profile by outsized media coverage, with other shootings involving police and people of other races that do not receive nearly as much attention.
“Now, in this country, the response to law enforcement is so frayed that, in many cases, there is no benefit of the doubt that is given. There is no, ‘let’s wait and see what the evidence says,'” he said, a reference to many in the media and in politics who very frequently jump to conclusions about such shootings that are often wrong. “There is a rush to judgment by a mob. They are hungry to destroy. This mob is hungry to blame America.”
Later, he noted that there is “a cultural problem” among segments of society in the United States that have problems dealing with law enforcement, which he also says is replicated in other countries and other societies around the world. “This isn’t about race,” he added.
After interviews with domestic policy advisor Diana Mee, New York Post columnist Miranda Divine, and Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, Golden pontificated about the future of New York City, which has been decimated economically during the pandemic, thanks in large part to Democrat-imposed lockdowns and business closures.
“I am a New Yorker, I love New York. I grew up here,” Golden said. “Let me tell you, anybody that thinks New York is not coming back, you are wrong. This is the greatest city in America. America is the greatest country in this world. We will get past Joe Biden. Will will get past [NYC Mayor] Bill de Blasio. We will get past [New York Gov.] Andrew corrupt womanizer groper Cuomo. We will get past all of this. We will get past this pandemic.”
“New York is coming back,” he declared.
