4-10-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Flashback Friday Radio

Nicole covers the day's news and info, then looks back. For some reason, John Melendez (Stuttering John from the Howard Stern Show) joins in, and Nicole turns the tables and asks him pointed questions. We segue into the weekend with an amazing 1996 radio appearance at KSCA from the Brian Setzer Orchestra

Socialism, Health Care Reform and John Fugelsang too!

Lauderdale recently, I met Marc Luzietti.  He ambled up to the microphone to ask a question, and identified himself as being with the Socialist Party of Florida. Of course, I invited him to join me on the show.  He'll join me today to tell us what they stand for.  (Hint: It looks a lot like what we progressives and liberals wish the Democrats would be, with [...]
