3-13-15 Nicole Sandler Show – It’s a Trans World (Or Not)

"Boca" Britany Somers joins Nicole Sandler in studio today to talk with Equality Florida's Gina Duncan about Florida's "bathroom surveillance bill" currently before the FL legislature, which would prohibit transgender people from using the restroom in which they best fit. For Flashback Friday, we go back to 1996 for Nicole's session with Richard Thompson

We’ll Meet Again

  It was a bittersweet ending to one of TV's smartest, funniest shows ever. Thankfully, we haven't lost Stephen Colbert forever, but his fictional alter-ego is now one for the history books. And I'll never hear "We'll Meet Again" in the same way.... Today, Americans are outraged that we seem to have given in to blackmail courtesy of North Korea, as Sony Pictures decided to give into the hackers' demands to kill their planned Christmas Day release of "The Interview." As of now, there are no plans to release it in any form, as per the instructions of the new masters [...]

Rise Above the Snake Line

After the past two weeks in Ferguson, we could really use an event to focus on morality, equality, rights and bringing people together. North Carolina has just what the doctor ordered, as today kicks off the Moral Week of Action.

And if you're still wondering what the snake line is, just listen to the man who founded the Moral Monday movement in North Carolina, Rev. Dr. William Barber from the speech he delivered at Netroots Nation last month in [...]

Kinky Flashback Friday

Get your head out of the gutter. It's Kinky because today's "Flashback Friday" segment features Ray Davies of The Kinks! I had the honor of interviewing him a few times, but today we went back to our first meeting, at Los Angeles' KSCA fm 101.9. I can't find the exact date, but it was somewhere around 1995 or 96. Ray had just published his book X-Ray: The Unauthorized Biography, and was in town for a series of shows called "20th Century Man" which wound up being the blueprint for VH1's Storyteller series! Needless to say, that interview was one of the [...]

You Came, So I Built It!

I said that if enough listeners wanted it, I'd expand the show and do a live program on Fridays. You asked, so here we are. The Friday program will be a little different... we'll look back at the week that was, open the phones for anything you want to talk about, and end the week with a gem from my music radio archives. My morning today began with my usual routine, reading my emails. I came upon an essay sent to me by a friend who wrote it and posted it on his personal blog. It was so moving and [...]
