Happy Cinco de Mayo to all! I'll be celebrating the festivities in the Patriot bunker today, as The Closer will be on the air from 1:00 until 3:00 pm Central. And when I say "celebrating" I mean fulfilling show host duties, natch (after all, FCC regulations preclude any indulgence in margaritas).
At 1:15, MN State Senator Dave Thompson (R-Lakeville) will call in to discuss the controversial tax bill "re-vote" which took place last Monday as well as other salient issues being addressed in the upcoming week.
At 2:00, I will play a prerecorded interview I conducted with nationally syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt. Hugh, whose fine program can be heard every weeknight from 5:00 until 8:00 Central on AM 1280, will be in Minneapolis for a special Patriot event called "Taking Back the Tundra." He'll lead a panel discussion on the best way for conservatism to triumph in the state of Minnesota.
Finally at 2:30, basketball wonk Mike McCollow will weigh in on the Friday announcement of his longtime friend Flip Saunders being named President of Basketball Operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Mike will also discuss the NBA playoff matchups now that they've moved on to the second round.
So please give us a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss
any of the topics we plan on addressing. You can also text
comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.
You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link.
Even though I have a face for radio, there is a UStream channel where you can watch the broadcast, if you so desire. Check it out here.
For mobile phone users, there are apps available for iphone, Blackberry and Android!
