As you certainly know by know if you're a regular listener of this program, a good chunk of my career was spent in music radio in Los Angeles. Back in 1997, while working as Rock Editor of the radio/record industry trade magazine The Album Network, I heard a record from a new band called Five for Fighting. I fell in love with it. I met the man who recorded under that band name, John Ondrasik, just in time to learn that [...]

Nicole tries to look at the positive today, with WI's Congressman Mark Potok and the Gliberal Goddesses (Amy Simon, GottaLaff). And we say Good Riddance to some of those retiring from Congress today too
It's Veterans Day and, sadly, we're making more of them. Today we learn about a new group formed to fight back against ALEC. And the Gliberal Goddesses - @GottaLaff, Amy Simon and Nicole Sandler - reconvene.
This email was sent to me by a regular reader of mine, and will make your heads explode. Verbatim: First, I live in one of the Tea Party strongholds of the nation in Southern Delaware.. Yes Delaware is the home of Joe Biden, but the lower part of the state is not Biden country.

Which means I shut-in, and most of the time if you saw me you would probably think [...]

In fact, as Frank recounts, there were a [...]
Veterans Day was officially yesterday - November 11 , but we'll talk about it today on both my show and Randi Rhodes'! We honor those who served our nation while, at the same time, hope we never send more men & women to war. So, Leah Bolger, president of Veterans for Peace will join me on both shows today. On my show, we'll talk about the latest casualty in the world of progressive talk radio. On Friday evening, Clear Channel flipped Portland's KPOJ to sports.. deja vu all over again. Florida's 29 electoral votes were finally awarded to President Obama! [...]
