Jonathan Larsen has spent many years in the progressive news broadcast biz — you knew him before you knew him from Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Up with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, and Morning Sedition and The Rachel Maddow Show on Air America Radio, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, to name just a few of his credits. Now he’s back with an imperative newsletter, The Fucking News (thefuckingnews.substack.com).
And he joins me each Monday for a recap and a preview of what happened last week and what might and could happen in the week just starting.
I began today’s show with a few memories. It was 27 years ago last night that my favorite job ever at my favorite radio station ever ended. It was Feb 5, 1997, and KSCA fm 101.9 in Los Angeles had been sold. Here’s what appeared in the LA Times on this day 27 years ago
And I marveled at last night’s Grammy’s, and how the best parts of it were artists we played then — Tracy Chapman and Joni Mitchell!
In case you didn’t get to see it, here is the full video of Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs singing “Fast Car” at the Grammys
