The Morning Show April 22 – 26

Last week was a rough one for America – what with the Boston Marathon bombings, the Texas fertilizer plant explosion, and the defeat of any rational gun control legislation in the Senate. Still some closure came with the death of one of the bombers and the capture of the other. A rough week in the news meant some exciting radio on AM 540. I posted two interviews conducted Friday – one with Marc Del Piero on Monterey Downs and the other with environmentalist Nikki Bittner from Carmel High at They’re well worth a listen or second-listen.
