The Nicole Sandler Show - Radio or Not!
Nicole Sandler of RadioOrNot.com interviews newsmakers and talks about the News of the Day, with a progressive slant.

Nicole decided to actually take a day off! Perfect timing too, as she recently discovered this 1995 radio program she hosted: "REM Monster Radio" that runs almost exactly two hours.

So, it's a full show featuring a cool Flashback Friday program with a great American band (there's that Fourth of July tie-in).


Death and Drugs go together in many ways. Today, we'll deal with them both separately and together... Death, as in the Death Penalty, which the Supreme Court just upheld in the worst way. Author Barry Graham, who's witnessed two executions, writes about it and talks with us today. As for drugs, your costs are going up under TPP. Michael Grunwald got hold of the TPP chapter dealing with prescription drugs, and also joins us today.

And we segue into the weekend with our Flashback Friday musical blast from the past. Today, it's my interview with XTC from 2000 and a bonus session with Wilco from 1999.

Nicole discusses this with Gaius Publius. GottaLaff joins in to talk about the issues they're using to take our attention off the Fast Track vote.
