Today is our last full day living in a semi-sane nation. Tomorrow at 12 noon, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, and I’m sick to my stomach.

I know most of my listeners will not be watching the spectacle tomorrow. I will so you don’t have to. Wish me luck.

Howie Klein joined me on today’s show, as he does each Thursday, and told us that the number of Democratic members of Congress boycotting tomorrow’s swearing in is up to 72! The Blue America PAC set up an Act Blue page for donations to thank them.

I first met Howie a lifetime ago when I was a rock radio jock on the air in Los Angeles and he was the president of Reprise records. I asked him about Green Day today, as their first album Dookie was his first project as Reprise president. It was at Howie’s where I first saw the video for their new song, “Troubled Times.”  Enjoy….

And for good measure….
