Chuck Gregory and Mike Palecek

I opened with Trouble Every Day, a great Frank Zappa song that feels like it was written yesterday instead of in the ’60s. Mike and I did a number of great segments:

  • The new daytime TV game show that’s sweeping the nation … “Beheaded & Buried At Sea” …
  • “Sitting On The Floor At Ward Cleaver’s Feet, Listening To Ward Cleaver”
  • “On Babushka Kalashnikov’s Korner: The View From My Piroshki Kart.”
  • What a wonderful world
  • The view from Uncle Bill’s Front Porch
  • A review of today’s news from the eye of the blizzard, pulled from The Nuclear Resister
  • Notes we have been receiving from listeners … by email, chat room, telephone, telepathy and telegraph
    • The Big Lebowski on David Cameron wanting to deal with “non-violent extremists” as harshly as with ISIS
    • A receipt for $1,000 and a note from Bunny Lebowski about the UN resolution paving the way to open-ended “anti-terror” warfare against the Islamic State (IS), the “network of death”, promising a war that will “last for years”
  • The News from Mount Liberty, where we resurrected one of Jack Robert King’s radio columns, very powerful stuff.
