Air America Radio - A Voice for the Left

:: Air America Radio, the new alternative talk radio network, debuted this week in the USA in selected markets, including NYC, Minneapolis, Chicago, LA, and SF. On-air hosts include Al Franken, Janeane Garofolo, Randi Rhodes, and Chuck D of Public Enemy. Talk radio has been dominated by the Right for so long, one wonders why it took so long for the Left to finally wake up and provide an alternative.

For those outside the broadcast areas, and outside of the USA, a live connection using RealOne Player is available here.

:: I am volunteering for the Juno Awards this week, but not at the Big Event on Sunday night. Tomorrow from 1500-1900 hrs, I'll be at City Hall, helping with an interactive electronic display. On Saturday night, I'm working 8:00 pm - 2:30 am (which means 3:30 am, because DST begins on Sunday morning at 2:00 am), at The Power Plant on campus, as a media contact. I should be significantly groggy for the rest of Sunday...

Funny, I am volunteering for the Junos on Sunday - first aid - but we won't know who is selected until nearer the time...

I've noticed so many links to Air America already - I'm looking forward to hearing what they have to say.

Morpheus, that's interesting. I got the sense that few volunteers were being used on Sunday night, that the event would be handled by "professionals", but I suppose First Aid is a little different. HAC, Air America's online broadcast (uses RealOne) sounds good, and doesn't seem to "reload" very much. I think I may be listening to it from time to time. I really want to hear Franken and Garofolo. I'm listening to it now, and Chuck D is interviewing John Mellencamp (with Lizz Winstead and Rachel Maddow).
