« Wrong Numbers | Main | Network News Biased Against Bush »
Once again, we
gasbags bloggers of the Northern Alliance march bravely down to AM 1280 The Patriot to do our weekly radio show. We're trying to find a streaming service that won't charge us an arm and a leg for a three-hour stint once a week (most of them charge a flat monthly rate based on 24-hour-a-day usage), so that you can tune in, turn on, and drop in. With any luck, in a couple of weeks, we'll be live on the Internet.
Until then, I'll be live-blogging again today, where we'll be discussing topics such as John Kerry's accusations against Bush and the Republicans, the Madrid bombing and what it might mean for the war on terror, the launch of the liberal radio network AirAmerica, our weekly Hack Columnist of the Week in the Twin Cities, and JB Doubtless and I will debate the artistic merits of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ. We'll also have live guests (as opposed to dead ones?) during our second hour, plus lots of callers to keep us on our toes.
Keep checking back on this post for the live blogging!
12:01 - Getting the prep done -- our first topic will be Madrid and the wider war on terror ...
12:18 - First break -- Fox News reports that Spanish intelligence is 90% sure that the bombing was al-Qaeda and not ETA, according to Mitch...
12:31 - Second break. Now we're fully into the presidential campaign again, talking about the polls that show 60% of the American public think that terrorists want John Kerry to win the election -- but that doesn't translate to more support for Bush, interestingly enough ...
12:47 - Third break - Interesting couple of callers. One caller thought that Kerry would be off the ticket by the convention and alluded to a Hillary "white knight" arrival on the scene ...
1:07 - Sharon Yecke is on the air now via phone, talking about educational standards with Hindrocket and Trunk in the studio and King (from SCSU Scholars) on the phone. Sharon makes a good guest ...
1:29 - The Elder and I are having a better discussion in the Green Room than we can put on the air -- it's easier, of course, to keep the conversation on track when it's just two people and no one listening. We got an e-mail last segment scolding us for using our nicknames, calling us cowards -- of course, it was an anonymous e-mail. ROFL...
2:00 - Getting back in studio for the third hour, discussing Gibson's Passion ...
2:15 - I'm getting creamed by JB on this Passion issue ...
2:45 - The callers have been supportive of me, so apparently I didn't do all that bad ... or at least, I didn't hurt my cause. One of the callers was DC from Brainstorming -- you were great!!!
I'm shutting it down for now, but I'll be back to blogging later this afternoon from the First Mate's dialysis center!Sphere It View blog reactions
