Happy New Year!

Posted on Jan 11, 2011

Usually I’m excited about sharing information about new releases, concert dates and what I’m up to in the New Year…there is plenty of that coming up in future communications. However, I am disturbed and troubled about the tragic shootings in Arizona this past Saturday. As a radio host and media professional, I am upset about the misuse of power and influence that these so-called messiahs of the airwaves spew on gullible segments of the public. Whether it’s distorted rhetoric such as Sarah Palin’s bullseye targets (which tragically came true this past Saturday) or Rush Limbaugh’s defense of on-air hateful political evangelism, we are living in dangerous times here in the U.S.. It will be up to each of us to challenge these “spokespeople” at every opportunity…the work starts now.
