interviews


TV clipartThink Progress has a post up called

If It’s Sunday, It’s Karl Rove

and in it they have a list of questions that they want the talk show hosts to ask Rove. Here’s the list:

In addition to those, I think they should also ask him about these things:

  • Who Jeff Gannon was spending nights with in the White House?
  • Is George Bush drinking or doing drugs?
  • Who is the real president, Bush or Cheney?
  • Why did you decide to leave now?
  • What gave you the idea that there are no rules for you and your friends?
  • Why did you decide Congress doesn’t matter anymore?
  • Did you rig the voting machines?
  • Don’t you feel guilty destroying the country like this?

What else would you ask him?

Here’s what John Edwards had to say at last night’s Human Rights Campaign Presidential Forum. It was not a debate because the candidates talked one at a time about issues in the lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender community.

UPDATE: Michael Stettler will be interviewed on the radio on Monday 3/26/07 in the third hour of Bob Kincaid’s show on Head-On. The show is on from 6-9pm Eastern time.

destruction of houses in PascagoulaPascagoula, Mississippi is one of those places that’s really hard to spell. Maybe that is why FEMA and the assistance organizations are having such a hard time finding it.

Or

maybe not.

Pascagoula is the county seat for Jackson County and had 26,200 people in 2000 according to its census. Here you can find the history of the city.


Michael Stettler is currently in Pascagoula, Mississippi as a volunteer with the Jackson County Community Services Coalition.

Michael is an electrician and a congressional candidate but a lot of what he is doing in Mississippi is assessing the housing needs of the clients Jim Yancey sees at Jackson County Community Services Coalition.

mold and damage in a house in PascagoulaMichael (or Stetty) is working and living in an old school gym that is still set up as a shelter 19 months after Hurricane Katrina hit, but he is driving to houses all over Jackson County that are still not fixed up. He is helping to see what they need, and then other people help get it installed. There are also lots of volunteers and college students on Spring Break that help with the construction.

Some homeowners got some money from FEMA but they got ripped off by contractors and roofers. Some families have not gotten any money or not nearly enough money. Stetty reports that although 95% of homeowners have at least had their assessment done, he hasn’t seen any houses that are completely fixed from the hurricane’s wind and water. He has met many people whose houses still smell terrible from water damage and mold, and no one has cleaned up the mold or put in new carpets or floors.

Look at this map of Pascagoula.

The oval looking white area is where thousands and thousands of people displaced by Hurricane Katrina a year and a half ago still live in very unsafe trailer park. All of the blue squares are where people still have tarps instead of real roof for their houses.

Please write to all of your representatives and senators in Washington and tell them that we can’t let Americans keep on living like this. It is unAmerican!

The Head-On Radio Network has added a new talk show host:
Jeff Alan Wolf

His show, which he describes as “unfiltered, unspun, a little unhinged, but with a whole lot of common sense”, can be heard on weekday mornings from 11AM-2PM Eastern time. It also replays in the evenings at 9 ET and again every weekend. Jeff has only been doing political talk radio for 6 months, but had several entertainment shows on terrestrial radio airwaves for 16 years. Jeff Alan Wolf From his Arizona studio, he talks about national politics and current events from a progressive viewpoint. Jeff considers himself both a progressive and a liberal, and he has been a democrat ever since he was old enough to vote. Jeff joined the head-on radio network where he was already friends with Bob Kincaid. Since then he has met Guy James, Mark Levine and Jon Fox on the phone.

In addition to radio, Jeff has also worked as an actor (including a small part in Sean Penn’s first movie), a store manager, a magazine editor and a writer. He is still a professional photographer, and also likes to watch sports and loves to spend time with his girlfriend, who is also his news producer, the wonderful Natacha. They collect books, and they like exploring their new State of Arizona and cooking gourmet meals together. Even though he lived in Florida most of his life (except 3 years in Brooklyn, NY when he was a baby and the last year and a half in Arizona), Jeff mostly likes sports teams from places he didn’t live: Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Dallas.

He also likes listening to other hosts from the head-on radio network, and also other liberal and progressive hosts on other networks, but the new show is keeping him busy up to 15 hours a day. Part of that 15 hours is spent reading emails sent to wolfpacktalk@yahoo.com , preparing the show, and marketing the show. He can occasionally be found in the HORN chat room. But all that doesn’t keep him from watching Keith Olbermann, Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert whenever they are on TV.

It seems that no matter what question you ask Agnes Kincaid, her answer involves the word family. I called to interview her about the radio program she produces with her husband: Head-On with Bob Kincaid on weekdays from 7-10pm ET. But I learned more about her four kids, her pets (including new kittens), and her father-in-law than I did about her job in radio. Some may say that might be because Agnes has only been in the radio business for about a year, but the truth is she brings her love of family into everything she does. Her kids are all involved with the show, and it’s a good thing because their radio studio is inside their house and Agnes works on the show about 17 hours a day. She is the producer and spends a lot of time on technical and computer stuff, schedules interviews, plans and plays all the music, and takes phone calls during the show. Agnes is also a private duty nurse, but her only patients today are her kittens and Bob’s father who became very sick in July.

Agnes

Agnes has been working since she became emancepated from her parents at age 16. She grew up in Huntington, WV but she and Bob moved to a rural area to raise their kids in a small town. She then worked as a nurse in a jail and as an administrative assistant. They now live in the middle of the bible belt in an area that is very republican and conservative. They even have had Christians come to their house to convert them.

Bob and Agnes are both partners in Head On radio yet they don’t get paychecks for the show. Neither do the other hosts or the computer people. Bob and Agnes don’t even take donations, but some people do if they need to buy new radio or computer equipment. Bob and Agnes want the network and the shows to be centered on the listeners. She can often be found in the Head On Radio chat room where she reminds all that family is who you choose, and not necessarily the one you are born into.

Agnes Kincaid: Producer, Head On Radio Network

The program is: Head-on with Bob Kincaid
