Ed is still doing great progressive talk radio. Check here for the Fallon Forum weekly broadcast schedule each and every Monday. You can livestream The Fallon Forum at www.fallonforum.com or WRLD.TV from 12:00-1:00, Monday-Friday. Podcasts available, too. And you can still catch Bradshaw right after Ed. [We assume from his note that Ed will be playing The Star Spangled Banner on his accordion live on the show but he didn't actually say that].
Nothing boils the hot blood of nationalism more – nor drills fear deeper into the hearts of terrorists – than a spirited rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Nothing, that is, except President Bush or Congressman Boswell rallying Americans to a patriotic shopping spree - as both did in response to the attacks on 9/11.
Until yesterday, I had never heard anyone perform the Star Spangled Banner on the accordion, let alone attempt to play it myself. Well, I can now check something else off the bucket list:
Perform Star Spangled Banner on Accordion at Country Music Concert.
No doubt, word has already reached terrorists lurking in caves in central Asia. No doubt, they are at present reeling from a new wave of bellow-shaking fear.
No doubt, to be safe in the knowledge that I have done my part to protect America, I am planning a gratuitous shopping spree. I might even buy another accordion. Take that, Osama . . . or whoever’s in charge these days.
Seriously folks, lots to talk about this week on the Fallon Forum. So much in fact that I haven’t yet sorted out topics and guests and matched them with dates and times. But I do know for certain that on Friday, candidates squaring off for the Iowa House in northwest Des Moines have agreed to a joint appearance/debate. Marti Anderson (Democrat) and Jeff Ibbotson (Republican) promise a contrasting yet civil discussion on a wide range of issues.
So, join the conversation, Monday-Friday, online from 12:00-1:00 pm on the Fallon Forum website. Call in at 244-0077, or toll free (855) 244-0077. Video and audio podcasts are available, too. And please tune-in to Bradshaw, Monday-Friday from 1:00-3:00, also on the Fallon Forum website.
Thanks! – Ed
