Click Radios To Listen! I sat in for a couple of weeks on SoCal's KNEWS Radio. It was an audition for their afternoon drivetime host position. Now I have never been a Talk Radio host. I've guest-hosted as a Sports-Talk guy, and I've sat in and co-hosted on Boston's WRKO. But, the idea of being a

KNEWS – Palm Springs: Happy “420!”

Yep...this was April 20th. The magical "420" holiday. So, I spent the day discussing/advocating the legalization of Marijuana. The idea that so many people are dying in border clashes. And money wasted putting people in prison for Marijuana, when alcohol is far more destructive to American cultu

KNEWS – Palm Springs: The Pussification Of America.

KNEWS Afternoons 4/13/10

Here's day two of my foray into Talk Radio. This show was a lot of fun. Talked about the fact that most Americans (myself included) are woefully uninformed. We've heard a lot about the "Tea Party" group of Americans. But...I have no idea what they're really all about. So, I embarked on a journey

KNEWS Afternoons 4/12/10

Here's the first of two days of shows I did for KNEWS in SoCal. "The Desert's News Talk Superstation!" It was an odd situation as the company owns stations all over the country. The closest to me being 65 miles away in Topeka. So...I drove out there and sat in their Topeka property's production
