Nicole Sandler with The Kinks' Ray Davies May 1996

Nicole Sandler with The Kinks’ Ray Davies May 1996

When I unearthed the Lost Airport Interview I did with Ray Davies a few days after the interview at KSCA (where the picture above was taken), I knew that we’d end this week’s shows with the back to back interview with The Kinks front man. I had no idea that President Obama would give a final NO to TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline until moments before 11am today. But that happened. 

And after ridiculing Ben Carson for his insanity in claiming humans walked on the moon because the US was founded “on God,” for his tone-deaf remarks about transgender restrooms,  for his ridiculous claims about the founding fathers having no electoral experience and his crazy performance on CNN’s morning show today, the other shoe finally dropped! . The bullshit was thick, but it was in the final minutes of today’s show that Ben Carson’s really big lie was debunked. Yes, the brain surgeon lied with impunity about winning a scholarship to West Point.  Perhaps this is the beginning of the end of the Carson campaign. Then again, his rabid followers probably don’t care!

Ugh. Julianna Forlano joined me, as she does on Fridays, to help stick a fork in this week.

I’ll be back Monday to take on a whole new week, radio or not.

In the meantime, enjoy today’s music:
