Bernie Sanders delivered his speech on Democratic Socialism yesterday, but if you get your news from the mainstream, corporate TV media, you'd never know. So Nicole shares some highlights this morning. Plus Kelly Carlin on her new book about life with her dad, George Carlin, and a Flashback Friday musical blast with the BoDeans from Nicole's radio past to end the week.
On this Friday the 13th, Nicole Sandler is joined by comedian Julianna Forlano to wrap up the week. After a report from Victoria Jones, Nicole launches in Flashback Friday mode, today featuring her 1999 interview with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders.
It's Friday! After Nicole Sandler runs down the news stories she wasn't able to get to this week with some help from Julianna Forlano, it's Flashback Friday time. Although we've previously shared Nicole's May 1996 interview with The Kinks' Ray Davies, the follow-up, recorded at the airport a week or so later, had been missing, until today. Nicole shares both Ray Davies interviews today. Plus a last minute final rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline too!
Tomorrow's Halloween, so Nicole Sandler takes a look at some of the scariest people and stories in the news, with some help from Julianna Forlano. For our Flashback Friday segment today, we go back to Halloween 1996 for Nicole's interview with Chris Isaak from LA's House of Blues before his Halloween performance.
Nicole recaps yesterday's Benghazi House Select Committee hearing with Hillary Clinton. Washington Post's Greg Sargent joins in. In hour two, Nicole enters the vault for a Flashback Friday musical blast from her music radio past - today with JJ Cale and Francis Dunnery (cuz we need lots of music today!)
It's Friday! After Nicole deals with the unfortunate news that US participation in the war in Afghanistan will not end during the Obama administration, we get on with the business of segueing into the weekend. Julianna Forlano brings the laughs. For our Flashback Friday segment, Nicole digs into her music radio archives for Ben Folds Fives' first LA radio appearance, 20 years ago this week, on 10-18-95!
On what would have been John Lennon's 75th birthday, the US just passed the 14 year mark in our war in Afghanistan. Internally, the GOP is at war with itself, and the goings on in the GOP caucus more closely resemble a soap opera than an august legislative body. Comedian Julianna Forlano joins in to help Nicole make sense of the week. We end the week with a Flashback Friday musical blast from Nicole's radio past. Today, we go back to August 1994 with blues great John Hammond.
We end the week with the news of another mass shooting, this time at a community college in Oregon, leaving 9 victims and the shooter dead. Nicole speaks with Congressional candidate Joseline Peña-Melnyk, running for Donna Edwards' seat. As Blue America is giving away a Steely Dan platinum award to a random donor to her campaign, today we feature a Steely Dan treat for Flashback Friday - the raw interview between Nicole, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker for the world premiere of Two Against Nature. Time to soothe the savage beast, indeed.
The US is still in the midst of Pope fever. Today, our regular Fri morning guest Julianna Forlano is instead in Central Park, hoping to get a Pontiff glimpse. That's OK. Congressman and Senate candidate Alan Grayson will fill in! Plus, the other Joel Silberman. Really. And for Flashback Friday, we end the week by going back to 2001 with Ryan Adams!
As we wrap up a week most of us would prefer to forget, Nicole takes us back six years to Sept 1, 2009 and Air America Radio. She broadcast her show from LA that week, and had some special guests. Today, we'll listen to her visit from singer/songwriter Jill Sobule and music legend Don Was! Julianna Forlano helps recap the week in absurd news too.
