2-15-19 Nicole Sandler Show – National Emergency with Dave Johnson

  Donald Trump today declared a national emergency in order to spend money that Congress denied him for a ridiculous border wall. He then went on to admit he didn't have to do this, but wanted to do it fast. Oy. Dave Johnson joins in to discuss today's Rose Garden spectacle, as well and brainstorm on what the Democrats need to do once they win back the Senate and the White House.

2-14-19 Nicole Sandler Show – One Year Later and Thursday with Howie Klein

This show is based in Coral Springs, FL. We're next door and the sister city of Parkland, where one year ago today, a former student entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and murdered 17 students and faculty. Nicole reflects on that day, and what's happened since. Today's also Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins in to talk about the apparent disconnect between Democratic leaders and the voters who put them in place...

Monday Music with Randy Newman

  I've been honored to have interviewed Randy Newman twice - and somehow didn't manage to get a picture taken with him. The first time we met, it was in the Music Hall at KSCA fm101.9 in Los Angeles. The Music Hall was actually a closed off hallway in between the on-air studio and the production room. But the sound was magic. The second time I got to sit and talk with Randy Newman was at Channel 103.1, the Triple A station that followed KSCA on the air a few years later.  It was May 25, 1999. This time we [...]

2-6-19 Nicole Sandler Show -SOTU Redux and Gaius Publius on M4A

We're still recovering from an ugly and divisive State of the Union address in which Trump threatened no legislation while there's an investigation, and claimed we'd be at war with North Korea by now if he hadn't been elected. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. I'll fill you in on what you missed if you opted out. Then Gaius Publius, now writing under his actual name of Thomas Neuburger, returns to talk about the inevitability .. .or not... of Medicare for All. He wrote two pieces about it for Down with Tyranny: "Medicare For All — The [...]

2-5-19 Nicole Sandler Show – Tuesday with GottaLaff

It's Tuesday, so GottaLaff joins in to discuss the news of the day which, unfortunately, has been hijacked by the anti-Sanders coalition to blow way out of proportion his plans to deliver his own response to Trump's State of the Union for the third year in a row. Shit's getting ugly, and we're still a year away from the Iowa caucuses...

2-4-19 Monday Music – It Was 22 Years Ago Today

My favorite radio station of all time signed on the air July 4 weekend of 1994. It was KSCA - fm 101.9, Southern California's Album Alternative, which later adopted the easier-to-say slogan LA's Finest Rock. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, as did this once-in-a-lifetime station, which signed off the air 22 years ago tonight. Scroll down below for some of the media attention the end of our little radio station garnered. One of our listeners archived much of our website as  it stood on that final day.  Yes, we were cutting edge. Ours was one of the [...]
