Supreme Sotomayor, Christy's News and the Bush Blues

All those things are on tap tonight on my Air America radio program, from 11pm -1am ET.

Yes, Judge Sonia Sotomayor is now Justice Sotomayor to you... so we'll have a Supreme Salute to our newest member of the high court.

Christy Harvey, director of Strategic Communications for the Center for American Progress will join us for our usual Thursday evening get together, during which we'll dish on the dirt of the day.

We'll even have some fun with music. Today, I received a song from an album that will be out on Sept. 1 from a true music legend. On this song, a remake of an old classic, he's joined by another legend. I'll play some of it and the first person to call in and correctly guess both artists will win a prize... I'll email them the mp3 of the song. Hey, it's something....

In the second hour of the show tonight, I'll speak with Russ Baker, an award-winning journalist (the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, The Nation, the New York Times, Washington Post...), about his book Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces that Put It in the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America. Russ is also the founder of WhoWhatWhy/the Real News Project, a nonpartisan, nonprofit investigative news operation.
