And we'll be using many that were suggested by listeners and Facebook friends today on Air America Live, from noon-3 ET at airamerica.com.
I'll update the list as we go along, and I hope you'll participate by adding your suggestions to the comments below, or calling in to the show at 866-303-2270... We'll use as many of them as possible today, and will compile a list when it's all done.
The reason for the theme today is apparent. The House yesterday passed a massive war spending bill to continue financing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. And we're seeing our president standing by many of the practices we abhorred during the previous administration.
With Dick Cheney as a constant televised reminder of the atrocities they committed in our names, still spewing his lies and venom. We must speak out to demand that those responsible are held accountable.
I've long bemoaned the lack of a new generation of protest songs... but I asked for suggestions, and you came through loud and clear. So we'll spotlight those today, as I focus in on the topic that Cheney is keeping at the forefront of the news cycle... torture.
Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern will join me in the first hour. And we'll hear what the other side thinks in the second hour, as Newsmax columnist John LeBoutillier checks in. And I definitely want to hear from you too!
Today will be my last day hosting Air America Live. Doing Time with Ron Kuby will move into this slot beginning Monday. You can always find me here at RadioOrNot.com. And I'll still be doing work for Air America... as soon as next week. I'll be guest-hosting the Ron Reagan show next Friday, 5/22, and the following Monday 5/25.
As always, I'll keep speaking out... Radio or Not!
