Listening to the debut this afternoon of « Air America Radio » (the only alternative to the massive fascist domination of the airwaves) on XM167. So far, mildly entertaining. My first listen to Ed Schultz, who strikes me as an exact mirror-image opposite of Rush Limbaugh. At first I thought it was the hillbilly heroin pill-popper himself, in fact, and I almost changed the channel.
Still, it’s lovely to hear a contrarian viewpoint on radio for the first time in 25-20 years of having to listen to the fascists. This is the best I’ve felt since 12-Dec-00 … you can feel good too, if you have XM Satellite Radio … or visit the website and use RealPlayer (although « Atrios » readers are reporting some streaming problems this afternoon due to high demand).
