4-9-20 Nicole Sandler Show – After Bernie Thursday with Howie Klein

Download here or click below to play   I had a feeling this day was coming... well, it was yesterday, actually, that Bernie Sanders ended his campaign. Logically, it was the right thing to do.

Radio or Not

If I deviate by a fraction of a centimeter, it’s lost. But there’s no way to mistake this for the generic corporate pablum coming out of the stations on either side of that elusive digit on the dial.
