Saved by the Bob

After our scheduled guest had to postpone at the last minute, the ever-entertaining Bob Flaherty rescues us with his usual blend of humor and human interest stories. His latest column for the Daily Hampshire Gazette covers former Amherst resident Kimi Takesue’s documentary about Uganda, “Where Are You Taking Me?”

Once again, Bill makes his case against casinos, and pleads his case for an even better idea.

As always, Bill Scher gives us the scoop on the political lay of the land in his Progressive Breakfast.

A Really Full Show…

There’s so much show, and so little time (and room!) to fit it all in!

First we get an update from Bill Scher about what’s happening in Wisconsin.

Then we get a visit from Bob Cilman, Diane Porcella, Ed Sullivan, and Ed’s alter ego Tom Mahnken to talk about the last of the Four Sundays in February, the 20th anniversary of The Really Big Show happening this Sunday.

Finally, we talk to Andrea Miller, executive director of NARAL Massachusetts, about the systematic attack on women’s health programs and reproductive rights, and how you can help.

Revolution – and trash – in the air

Vijay Prashad keeps us updated on the situation in Egypt, and gives us an idea of what to expect. Alex Jarrett and Ruthy Woodring of Pedal People keep us updated on our options for solid waste disposal in a post-landfill Northampton. And, as always, Bill Scher keeps us updated on what’s happening in Washington.

Inaugural show for Valley Free Radio

Well, we made it through our first day with only a few technical difficulties! We talked to our friend Bill Scher, who gave us a preview of his daily feature The Progressive Breakfast. You can tune in and hear him chat with us every day. Don’t forget you can stream Valley Free Radio’s programming here.

Northampton Mayor Higgins gave us the lowdown on some of the issues on folks’ minds here in town.

Plus, State Senator Stan Rosenberg talked about some of the bills he filed last week, including a proposal for medical marijuana and a graduated income tax.

News stories can be found here, here, and here.
