Northern Alliance Radio Goes National!

Great news for all of you who have asked when the Northern Alliance Radio Network will be heard outside of the Twin Cities -- Hugh Hewitt has graciously asked us to fill in for him on his nationwide show on the Salem Radio Network on Tuesday, April 13th, and Wednesday, April 14th! We're not sure why Hugh has entrusted us with the smartest listenership in radio for two full nights; we suspect that a member or two of the gang at Fraters Libertas may have uncovered some deep, dark secret from the Lord High Commissioner's past. However it happened, we're delighted to step in from our cozy little studio here at AM 1280 The Patriot. The air times and stations will be the same (3-6 PM Pacific) -- just tune into Hugh's show and we'll be there. Monday, Mark Larson will fill in for Hugh.

If you do not get the Hugh Hewitt show in your area, the first thing you need to do is to call a local talk-radio station and demand that they get the show. After that, go to the on-line feed from here and tune us in. Hugh's web site can direct you to other Internet feeds as well.

While we're celebrating our opportunity to temporarily replace Hugh, you may want to know what the competition is doing. Via Drudge, it turns out that Air America, the new liberal talk-radio network, is busy kicking more minority voices off the air for that diverse crew of Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, Kathryn Lampher, and so on:

The Mercury News, citing a company press release, said the new radio network would air on two stations that currently offer Asian-language programming -- San Francisco's KVTO-AM 1400 and San Jose's KVVN-AM 1430. The Air American programming will be broadcast in English, but neither the radio network nor the two stations have said when the change would occur or what the future held for the stations' employees. KVTO general manger Harvey Stone could not be reached for comment.

Both stations are owned by Inner City Broadcasting Corp., which also owns Air American Radio's New York flagship station, WLIB-AM 1190. Inner City sparked controversy when it displaced WLIB's black-themed talk format to make room for Air American's format.

Sounds like FrankenNet should be calling itself Error America instead. Do these people have any clue whatsoever?
