Paean to Air America Radio
I wrote up a tribute to the hosts on Air America Radio here. I had it brewing in my head for a few weeks, but then had to finish it when I found out that AAR management wanted to dismantle the brilliant Morning Sedition radio program by not renewing cohost Marc Maron's contract.
The freeform-station-of-the-nation WFMU provided an even better tribute to Marc Maron, here.
I repeat that AAR remains the only broadcast medium willing to regularly talk about our current energy predicament. For example, co-host Thom Hartmann, substituting today for the Majority Report duo, just had a discussion about energy profiteering with a representative from the Ayn Rand institute taking on the corporatist position. (Hartmann will also appear on a global warming special tonight on Public Television, unfortunately I can't listen and watch at the same time)
Sign the petition to keep Marc Maron on the air.
