American forces progressive radio

News from the Louisiana Democrat mailing list:

Looks like Rush and other pro-administration talkers will no longer be exclusive to the US military's airwaves: Air America Radio's "The Al Franken Show" has begun broadcasts on the American Forces Network (AFN). AFN Radio will distribute the first hour of the "The Al Franken Show" as part of the inventory of stateside programming it provides to its affiliates overseas.

"I am absolutely thrilled that the 'Al Franken Show' will be carried on the American Forces Network, though, of course, that means I will have to stop criticizing President Bush. After all, he is our commander-in-chief," said Franken with his tongue placed firmly in his cheek.

I should note, however, as best I can determine, it appears that the Al Franken Show is only being added to the lineup of domestic programs, not overseas programs.

Todd Menesses of WWL/WSMB said that progressive talk will be back in New Orleans next week. He's testing equipment and hopes to be broadcasting Air America sometime next week -- maybe as soon as Monday.

Finally, listen to President Nixon's victory in Iraq ... er ... Vietnam speech, and compare it to Shrub's victory in Iraq speech delivered at the US Naval Academy last week.
