I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes.....
After a rare and well-deserved break last Sunday, The Closer is back from 1:00 until 3:00 PM today, LIVE on AM 1280 The Patriot.
For the entire 1:00 hour, I am honored to welcome to the Patriot studio Miss Minneapolis 2014 Julia Schliesing.
Julia was crowned Miss Minneapolis about a month ago, so the excitement of her winning the title will still be fresh.
In addition to talking about her pageantry experience (click the link here to help her as she moves on), Julia will also discuss her platform, which is suicide prevention.We'll also promote a fundraiser she has coming up which will benefit the organization Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE). And given that Julia is politically right-of-center, I have a sneaking suspicion she'll opine on some of the latest political news.
Then for the entire 2:00 hour, it'll be the debut of the Jeff George sports/political extravaganza! No, I'm not talking about the highly talented yet malcontent NFL quarterback. Rather it'll be personal friends Jeff Kolb and George Damian, who are both sports fanatics* and politically active. These guys are so prolific in both areas that I'm half tempted to ceding the hour to them. I'll bring some popcorn just in case.
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 via iheart radio.
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!
