8-6-14 Nicole Sandler Show – I’m in a New York State of Mind

  I was born in New York City, and lived in Queens until my family moved to Florida on the day I finished 6th grade. After graduating from the University of South Florida, I moved back to New York, working in radio there for five years (until a relationship brought me to Los Angeles- a story for another day). I love New York, and will always consider it, in some sense, home. I also adored Governor Mario Cuomo. The picture above was taken in 1984 or 1985, when I produced a monthly statewide "Ask the Governor" radio show. (Another aside: [...]

Don’t Drink the Water – or- Nowhere to Run

We're killing the planet. Actually, more accurately, we're making this planet uninhabitable. The picture above is one of a few I saw posted around the interwebs this morning of the "water" that's coming out of faucets in Charleston, WV today - after authorities gave the all-clear and said the stuff was safe to drink, bathe in, and give your kids. Lovely, huh? And even though information from Japan about what's going on at and around Fukushima is now non-existent due to a new state secrets law that prohibits the dissemination of information (and even prohibits journalists from asking the questions!), [...]

Friday, revisited

I don't usually do a show on Fridays.  I was planning to spend Friday doing what I did for the rest of the weekend -- packing everything that was left in my soon-to-be former house.  But I awoke to an email asking if I could start my week-long fill-in stint for Randi Rhodes as day earlier, as her dog Simon had taken a turn for the worse. So, fill-in I did, gladly.  It turned out to be a pretty great show.  And I was happy to be working doing something I love rather than working packing and moving, if you [...]

Fighting for our Lives

We are. Literally fighting for our lives. In Japan. In Libya, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. And all over the United States in places like Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Arizona and other states who've elected Republican governors who want to bust unions and penalize the poor and working class for- well-being poor or working class, people are also fighting for their lives. I can say that with no trepidation, because if these governors dictators are able to foist their agendas on their states, the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will be denied. After all, how can [...]

This is What Democracy Looks Like

You can find it online, but not on your TV.  As Bruce Springsteen said, "57 channels and nothing on" -- except now it's 557 channels, and still no coverage of the huge protests that went on this weekend in Wisconsin and other cities here in the US.  But I have a feeling if this was an astroturf rally comprised of people sporting teabags and misspelled hate filled signs, we'd be inundated with made-up details. Thank God for the interwebs.  The above picture came courtesy of the Political Carnival.  Live streaming of the massive protests was provided by The Uptake.  (An [...]
