SORT BY Relevancy
It took a couple of months but your always loud and intrepid host has it finally figured out...the people want to see the man they call Fahr to tear the hearts out of the conservative weasels (like any of them even know what a heart is). The Koch Bros devestate America through racism, forcing the poor to stay in poverty, ruin the environment and through that, people's health...my, my, my weren't the evil bastards evil this morning. And the day just got started. As the Koch-suckers wallow in their own piggy slime, the Bros count the Benjamins...YOUR Benjamins.
Local news and commentary with hook-up music our great grandparents. National current affairs and featured news audio clips. Callers welcome.
Program Summary 12 July 2014
Filmmakers Tia Lessen and Carl Deal worked with Michael Moore on Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, and made a movie, Trouble the Water, on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They made plans to deal with money in politics and the Citizens United Supreme Court decision when in early 2011 a grassroots rebellion began in Wisconsin.
The newly elected governor Scott Walker, deeply funded by money from the Koch brothers, had proposed eliminating bargaining rights for public employees. Tia Lessen and Carl Deal captured - over several months - one of the most inspiring social movements of our time and the first large scale rebellion against money in politics. The images of teachers, nurses and fire fighters occupying the State House, one on one conversations with participants in the protests - many of them Republicans who reject the extremism of the Tea Party, and the coverage of the recall campaign that collected almost a million signatures - all that makes up the heart of the movie.
Sadly though Walker's high financed rise to power and the even better funded defeat of the recall movement stand at the beginning and end of the movie as warning that the power of money over politics must be broken. This movie is a contribution to that end.
Independent radio journalist and producer, Christina Aanestad spoke with Tia Lessen at the opening of her film in San Francisco at the Opera Plaza Cinemas. It was a packed house and they spoke in the lobby of the theater amongst late arrivals of movie goers and a popcorn stand.

Meet today's Guest:
Sterling has worked in such varied industries as Construction, Defense and, most recently, the sustainable coffee sector as CEO of Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company.
His personal dedication to socially responsible leadership has led him to understand that we succeed or fail as a community and the realization that the most impactful work in tackling challenges will result from a collaborative effort at the community level. Our greatest payoffs will come from understanding our commonalities; respecting our strengths and building credibility with direct reach into the community.
Also a champion of education, Sterling is on the advisory board at the Universities at Shady Grove where he sponsors a scholarship fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs. He is a board member of the Arts and Humanity Council of Montgomery County, Future Link Inc. and Impact Silver Spring. Sterling was also former Chair of the Board of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce.
Frank Bang spent 5 years touring with Buddy Guy, has played on stage with Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews and Carlos Santana to name a few. He released 4 albums, and then took time off to raise his family. Now he and his band Secret Stash are back making music. His latest album is Double Dare and will be released on May 21. Frank will join me to discuss his life, career and new album, while we listen to some tunes.
Sterling Koch is a nationally recognized lap steel guitarist who is a touring/recording solo artist and session musician. Sterling specializes in playing Chicago-style, slide guitar blues in a contemporary style on the lap steel guitar. His latest album, Let It Slide is a collection of some sweet music. After years of playing guitar, Koch was told he need to stop once a herniated disc was found in his neck. Foregoing surgery Koch decided to take up the lap steel. Frank joins me as we discuss his career and listen to his music.
Sena Ehrhardt grew up in Minnesota with a blues-loving, guitar-playing dad, so it is no surprise when she followed in his footsteps into music. Her first album, Leave The Light On, earned her a Blues Music Award Nomination for Best Debut Artist. and now, her second album, All In, was just released and it shows the growth she has gained in her songwriting, playing and singing. Produced by the great Jim Gaines, Sena and her band explode through 11 excellent tunes. I will chat with Sena about her life and how much it has changed in the last year and where she is headed in the future.
Keaton Simons joined me back in June of 2012 to discuss his debut album. He is releasing his new album and bringing it to The Couch with him. This young man plays music of different genres, but it all falls under the GOOD STUFF label.

Does anyone realize that Congress will spend more money trying to prove Benghazi when the previous 8 hearings proved nothing, while spending next to nothing on the VA scandal. Yours truly has figured it out, if its a bi-partisan problem, Repubublicans/Tea Baggers would rather do nothing but if it can discredit the black president or a future candidate, well, that's a problem. With all the talk of the deficit, the Republican nitwits spend millions proving nothing while add to their beloved deficit and then blaming it on the liberals and progressives. An even bigger problem...liberals and progressives doing nothing to stop them. Get off your hands and do something...anything.
