Radio Radio (or biting the hand that feeds me)

Yesterday, while I was having fun with audio and photoshop, President Obama put forth his blueprint for America... his budget. But we're not going to deal with that today... I hope you'll join me on the air tomorrow from 11Am-12noon on 850 WFTL (and if you're not in South Florida, they do stream at, as I'll speak with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz about that and the housing bill too.

But today on the Radio or Not podcast, we deal with one of my most favorite - and least favorite subjects... radio.

The topic of radio has been on the front burner during the past couple of weeks because of the cries of certain right wing talk show hosts and their puppets in Congress who've been screaming about the supposed Democratic agenda that would bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Not that that would be such a bad thing, but really, no one is pushing for it!

I explain all of that in today's podcast, and speak with Timothy Karr. Tim is Campaign Director at and, and I've spoken with him before about important issues like Net Neutrality and Internet for All.

But today, we spoke about his campaign to get Congress to support HR 1147, The Local Community Radio Act. For more info, check out Tim Karr's piece on Huffington Post, Celine Dion is Stalking You, join the Facebook group Local Radio NOW, and follow the issue on Twitter: #lpfm.
