RadioNation With Laura Flanders airing live now

Helped out C.I. by doing the post on Laura Flanders. If you listen live, the show's broadcasting right now:

"Laura Flanders leading the 'RadioNation'"
Kat here and you're minutes away from the live broadcast of The Laura Flanders Show. If you listen in an area that airs the program later, well your heads up is a little more ahead of everyone else. But for those who hear it live (over broadcast radio, satellite radio or via online streaming), you're minutes away from the live broadcast.
The Laura Flanders Show always provides excitement. That's due to a host, Laura, who's a radio professional doing making it sound so easy as she goes from commentary to interviews. That's due to a range of interesting topics and a desire to explore them.It's also due to the people behind the scenes as Laura always notes. That's people like Rosenfeldand Christabel Nsiah-Buadi. There's some new behind the scenes support:

7:00 to 10:00pm EST each Saturday and Sunday nightAir America RadioNetwork
On her last two shows of 2005, Laura had hinted at some new developments that would come in 2006, one of them is that her show now has the support of the country's oldest political magazine, The Nation. What does that mean?
Well, for one thing, that Katha Pollitt will be one of the guests Sunday. You know that will be worth listening to. But the conversations always are. To find out more about what this means, listen to RadioNation with Laura Flanders. On the show about to air, there will be me the usual wide range of discussion (including singer-songwriter Rhiannon). What else? I'll assume at least some of you have been taking part in some activism today. You know Laura's cover the Out of Iraq events.
This is Flanders first broadcast in the year 2006 so listen in and welcome her back.
Stealing from C.I.:
Via podcast, via broadcast radio (if there's an AAR in your area), via XM Satellite Radio (channel 167) or listen online.

Since I wrote that (and finally got it to post), the show's begun and Chris Bell, the former Congressman out of Texas who lost his seat as a result of the gerrymandering redistricting that Tom DeLay led will be on the show to discuss recent developments including DeLay's announcement that he won't attempt to seek the House majority postion he was forced to give up when he was INDICTED. In addition, there will be a discussion of how the Abramoff charges have impacted Native Americans who, remember, were used for their money but were a victim in this.

After I posted, Sumner said I should have noted that Laura never suffers from "War Got Your Tongue?" Isn't that obvious? If not, you weren't listening to the opening of the show. So listen now. She's a brave voice speaking truths.
