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

As we wrap up a week most of us would prefer to forget, Nicole takes us back six years to Sept 1, 2009 and Air America Radio. She broadcast her show from LA that week, and had some special guests. Today, we'll listen to her visit from singer/songwriter Jill Sobule and music legend Don Was! Julianna Forlano helps recap the week in absurd news too.

We've officially passed the period known as the Dog Days of Summer, but yesterday was National Dog Day, when American attempted to comfort ourselves by posting pictures of our precious pups. We did it to escape the painful news of the day, which included at least TWO shootings in which at least two people were killed, Life in America. Today, we'll deal with the aftermath, plus talk with Harvey J. Kaye and Howie Klein.

This week marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's devastation of New Orleans. Part time resident Harry Shearer joins in to tell what he discovered about the reasons why New Orleans flooded while making his film, "The Big Uneasy".  Florida is in the crosshairs of Erika - so it's a perfect day for another dip into the Oy FloriDUH files with Deborah Newell Tornello. And just before we hit the air came the news of the shooting death of a TN news crew in VA live on the air. Shit storm, indeed.
