While I’m On Hiatus….

While I'm out, please explore the archives. There's close to 10 years of full shows, lots of interviews and some musical treats too. And it's all free. Well, on the honor system, anyway.  Since I'm trying to heal and hope to escape from politics while I'm on the mend, I thought I'd share some of the highlights of my career so you can escape the ugliness of this political season too. On The Nicole Sandler Show stream, I'm playing back dozens of my favorite interviews with musicians and rock stars from my many years in music radio.  Although I can't [...]

7-1-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Making History

  That's my daughter carrying that awesome sign that reads "History says change happens. Make some!" She was probably 12 years old at the Occupy Ft. Lauderdale march that I dragged her to with me at the height of the Occupy movement. Just look how far we've come since then. Today, we talked about making history as we're making history. Boca Britany Somers joined us in the new studios today as our first in-studio guest! She's welcome any time, but since there was major news for the transgender community and the rest of the world this week, I invited Brit in to [...]

4-8-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Finally Fucking Friday!

We somehow made it to the end of this bloody week still standing. Today on the show, Nicole Sandler chats with The Nation's John Nichols about Wisconsin's new voter ID law & how it accomplished what the GOP legislature (who passed it) set out to do. Lee Camp brings the humor about the serious stakes as we head into the weekend. And in honor of Joan Baez endorsing Bernie Sanders, we have a Flashback Fri segment from 1996 with Joan and Dar Williams.

Another ground-breaking GOP debate for the books last night. Nicole recaps and more with Julianna Forlano. We end the week with a Flashback Friday musical blast from Nicole's radio past. Today, in honor of Ben Folds joining the Sanders campaign, we'll listen back to Ben Folds Five's first Los Angeles radio appearance, with Nicole from Oct. 1995.

11-20-15 Berning Down the House

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.

10-16-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Flashback Friday: Endless War Edition

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!

10-9-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Imagine Peace and Sanity

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.

It's finally Friday, after a long, stressful week. Nicole Sandler recaps what happened, from computer meltdowns to GOP debates with Julianna Forlano. In the second hour of Friday shows, Nicole pulls out an old interview with performance from her music radio past. Today, it's Chris Isaak from 1994 in which his comedic wit is on full display!

9-4-15 Nicole Sandler Show – Labor, Laughter, Music & More

It's the Friday before Labor Day, when we usually get a nice news or document dump. Julianna Forlano joins Nicole Sandler to take some guesses at what might be dumped later today. The writer/director of the new film, "The Algerian" visits. And for Flashback Friday, we go back to Nov 1996 at LA's KSCA fm 101.9 with Evan Dando of The Lemonheads – and to Channel 103.1 in Los Angeles on Nov 18, 1999 for a session with Wilco!
