The government shutdown continues but the Northern Alliance Radio Network (definitely an essential service) rolls on. Today I will be in my usual 1:00 PM until 3:00 Central Time slot for The Closer.
At 1:30, it will be truly an honor to welcome to the broadcast Alice Widstrand and her older brother Ray. In case you're unfamiliar with Ray's story, he was brutally beaten by gang members while he walked to his East St Paul home on the evening of Sunday, August 4. Ray's story has become an inspiring tale of optimism, determination and forgiveness, as he slowly recovers from serious brain trauma. Please "like" Ray's Facebook page or subscribe to his Caring Bridge site for updates on his recovery.
Then at 2:00 PM, Phil Krinkie will join me is studio. Krinkie is vying for the GOP nomination in Congressional District Six to replace Michele Bachmann in the US House. Krinkie served 16 years in the MN State Legislature and earned the nickname "Dr. No" for his steadfast refusal to increase taxes or the size and scope of government.
So please give me a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss any of the topics I 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, or check us out viaiheart radio.
