I Would Have Promised Those Terrorists A Trip To Disneyland


[COMMENT]On Wednesday morning I turned on C-Span to watch and listen to the Benghazi hearings. I thought this was very important and I felt obligated to watch it. It was very compelling and I think it brought a lot to light. I sat in front of my computer for 4 hours. I occasionally would pick up the radio and go though all the radio stations that matter in LA to see if anyone was broadcasting the hearings. They were not. I turned on KFI, KABC, KRLA, KNX, KFWB, KCRW, KPCC, KPFK.....nothing. To me this is shocking and very disappointing. I remember back in the late 80's Pacifica Radio (KPFK 90.7) here in LA broadcast "Gavel to Gavel" coverage of the Iran-Contra hearings with [Oliver North] testifying. I think it went on for the better part of a week. I was glued to the radio. I was working most of the day but had it on in the car. That was very important at the time and widely talked about in the press. So why was this not so important? I have no idea. I did hear clips and analysis by [Hugh Hewitt] and [Mark Levin]. Hugh really put in a lot of time, or should I say his producer [Duane Patterson] did. That's gotta be a big job pulling clips from something that lasted 4 hours. If this is not worthy of local broadcast I don't know what is, oh wait [Lindsey Lohan] has moved her rehab......

[RADIO][Paul RyKoff] was on [Dennis Miller] Wednesday night. Check out these stats and go sign the petition, it will take 2 minutes. Interview with Dennis at this link:

As of May 4, 2013, 880,264 veterans are waiting for their VA disability benefits. 600,711 are officially backlogged - meaning they are waiting over 125 days. According to a recent report, the average wait time in larger cities can be over 600 days. In Reno it is 681 days. New York is 642 days. New Orleans is 490 days. Houston is 586 days. The list goes on. This is unacceptable. So we are calling upon our members, supporters, friends and the American public to make Washington #EndTheVABacklog. Click here to see solutions we have set out and join nearly 50,000 others and sign the petition now! http://iava.org/

L.A. station shortens digital cord.
One of radio’s top country stations will be harder to hear for anyone not living in California. Mount Wilson FM Broadcasters has decided to limit streaming of “Go Country 105” KKGO, Los Angeles to people in its home state. In a way, KKGO is a victim of its success.

On TWIG (This week in Google) [Gina Trapani] gets her Google Glass and does the most comprehensive review of it I've heard to date. Gina is a developer and really knows her stuff. Gina has a post on Google + of a photo of her baby taken with Google Glass. It shows how sweet a first person photo will be. I'll let you go look for that, it's worth a look.
Also [Jeff Jarvis] is on Google Talk instead of Skype and looks super clear, not all pasty as usual.
