It's a special edition of The Headliners edition of the Northern Alliance Radio Network today as we will be sans Headliners. With Mitch Berg and Ed Morrissey both out on assignment, I will be filling in from 1:00 PM until 3:00 Central time.
For the first segment, I will chat with Ken Parker, who is the writer/director of the dramatic musical Favored Nation. Ken will be on to discuss his inspiration for this production, which will feature performances at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center on Friday, October 26 (showtime 7:30) and Saturday, October 27 (two shows; 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm).
At 1:15, MN GOP State Senate candidate Karin Housley will join me in studio. She is running in Senate District 39, which includes Forest Lake, Scandia, Marine on St. Croix, Grant, Oak Park Heights, Bayport, Stillwater, Lake Elmo, Lakeland and St. Mary's Point. I personally spoke SD 39's DFL candidate, Julie Bunn, and invited her to appear for a one-on-one debate with Karin. Ms. Bunn declined so we will pay homage by placing an empty chair next to Karin.
Then in the 2:00 hour we will be joined via phone by Katy Abram of Lebanon, PA. Katy gained national notoriety back in August 2009 when she confronted Senator Arlen Specter at a Town Hall meeting during the contentious Obamacare battle.
Katy has since been a staple on Sean Hannity's radio show as well as having regular stints on Fox News and MSNBC.
We'll obviously discuss with Katy the legacy of Senator Specter, who passed away this past Sunday, as well as her take on the latest in the Presidential race.
