Northampton Fire Department Captain Tom Clark, aka Tommy Twilite stops by to discuss the union busting that’s happening in Wisconsin and elsewhere. We also chat about poetry, and LSD, as we note the passing of Owsley Stanley with a song by one of Bill’s least favorite groups (NOT the one referenced in the title).

Her work here is done (almost)

Northampton Mayor Mary Clare Higgins announced on Friday she won’t be seeking another term. She stops in to talk about her decision, her administration, and her future.

Also, Bill talks a little bit more about the political bread and circuses that have begun in Northampton, starting with the Michael Bardsley email request, which you can see for yourself at this link: BardsleyPublicRecordsReply022511

Jobs with Justice

It’s an icy morning here in Western Mass – roads are slick, and cars are sliding all over the place, spinning out, careening into each other, and – in some cases – unable to make it uphill. Which bears a striking similarity to the trainwreck that was last night’s Oscar broadcast. Jaz fills Bill in on what he missed.

We also talk to Jon Weissman of Western Mass Jobs with Justice about why unions matter, even if you’re not in one.

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.
