On the radio tomorrow!

Hi all: Short notice here but I'll be on the radio again tomorrow. Samantha has the details here:

Saturday, July 19th, The Samantha Clemens Show is live on the air for two hours beginning at 9 AM (US eastern) on WMFO 91.5 FM Medford, and streaming live on-line:

Guest co-host: Tony Schinella. Tony is an award-winning journalist and publisher of

Guests this week:

  • Craig Sandler, owner and Managing Director of the State House News Service, returns to tell us all about how much debt the state of Massachusetts is in (did anyone say Big Dig?), how we're going to save money on schools, and maybe even how the state of Florida might go blue.
  • Dedrick Muhammed, Senior Organizer and Research Associate for the Program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Institute for Policy Studies and former National Field Director for Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action, returns to talk about Obama's support of delivering social programs through religious institutions, Jackson's comments, and whether there is a generation gap in the black community on these issues.

Other topics on our minds:

  • Why is Dick Morris writing in that the Presidential race is tied? And Mark Mellman is writing in the same issue that Obama's lead is 'wrongly minimized'?
  • Should human rights be extended to nonhumans - we're talking the great apes - chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas and orangutans ? Well, they are in Spain? The most fundamental right of all - the right to not be eaten for food? But, how about medical research? How about the right to not be locked up in a zoo? What about monkeys - they're not apes, but they're still kind of cute? What about giant squid? They're not as cute, but they live long and maybe be sentient?

Something you want to talk about? let me know:


War News Radio - beginning at 8:30 am (30 minute pre-recorded report) - War News Radio fills the gaps in the media's coverage of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan by providing balanced and in-depth reporting, historical perspective, and personal stories.

Media Minutes - 10:00 (5 minute pre-recorded report) - the longest-running syndicated radio program of its kind focused on media policy and reform. Media Minutes tracks the latest industry developments, keeps an eye on Washington policy-makers, and talks to the experts and activists dedicated to changing our media environment for the better.
