True Conservative Radio was the name of the broadcast that Ghost used to host from 2008-2010, before it was resurrected as True Capitalist Radio. There are a few major differences between the two: there was no Engineer (An individual named Paul engineered the show), there was no Radio Graffiti (Didn't begin until June 8th, 2011, far into True Capitalist Radio), and the broadcasts were very late at night instead of in the afternoon. Shows were only two hours long, as opposed to three. During the very beginning of the show, most broadcasts were done during the weekend, but Ghost started doing more weekday broadcasts, and starting in September 2008, he only broadcasted on weekdays (the only weekend broadcasts in September 2008 and on were episodes 70, 82, 90, 101, and 142 of True Conservative Radio, and episodes 82 and 141 of True Capitalist Radio). There are a total of 183 audio broadcasts of True Conservative Radio, despite the last episode of True Conservative Radio being titled as the 182nd (episode 33 is not an audio broadcast; episode 176 (extra episode) was given a duplicate episode number; and there was an unnumbered episode after 107).

Also, rather than talking about the markets and capitalism, Ghost discussed conservatism and conservative topics. Many of the shows were spontaneous, fueled solely by Ghost and his rage, and the topics his callers wanted to discuss (opening many gateways to early trolling attempts). By the beginning of True Capitalist Radio he had renounced his conservatism because of "conservatives" like Sarah Eskimo Bimbo Palin. Ghost raged hardest at what he called 'the absolute pussification of America and the world', and this 'topic' caused him to blow over countless numbers of times. Callers were scarce (because Ghost completely dominated the show, most of his fan interaction took place through e-mails and in the chatroom), and trolling was sudden, yet did not keep consistency, and anyone who tried to attack his views were silenced from further shows. Ghost often went head-to-head with other Conservative radio hosts from BlogTalkRadio, who would then call in to his own show to defend themselves from Ghost and his own callers.

Ghost's extreme fits of rage were quite common, and the emotional output of each show typically was a build-up, until he reached a climax in rage sometime towards the end, before simmering down and ending off on a neutral note. His rages were much longer and severe than in the show's revival years later. Regular trolls from the True Conservative days that are still around include 213 (Ghetto Capitalist), PoopTickler, and the Internet Buttstalker. Most trolls were newfags and No Personality Having Jerk Dicks from 4chan raid-threads who simply spouted memes.
