So after a brief recap of the latest news, we'll officially begin the weekend with something special. A singer/songwriter who I truly admire has a new book out, How to Write a Song that Matters. I first met Dar Williams some 27 years ago. Her first album, The Honesty Room includes a song that listeners of the LA station where I worked truly connected [...]
When KSCA fm 101.9 launched, I did middays on the air, from 10am -3pm. About a year in, KLOS fired Chuck Moshontz, who had done news on the Mark & Brian Show for many years. One day my general manager came to me and asked what I thought about KSCA hiring Chuck, and teaming the two of us up to host our morning show. So that we did!

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.
Because it's Friday, Nicole focuses on some of the better things in life. Medical Marijuana activist Robert Platshorn joins in with details of the upcoming Rally in Tally and the latest in pot news. We celebrate Joan Baez' 74th birthday with a Flashback Friday session with Baez and Dar Williams from 1996 at a Starbucks in Los Angeles!

As I was flipping through the TV channels Saturday night while hearing the giggles coming from the gaggle of girls at the sleepover party in the other room, I happened upon CSPAN's live coverage of the NRA Annual meeting. I didn't linger on the channel long enough to hear the lies and misinformation from the speaker at the podium. But I did, for a moment, think about the 20 little ones, pictured above, who will never see 14, and realized how lucky I am to have a happy, healthy, living child. Last [...]
