The post-Chad era (PCE) of NARN 1 kicks off this morning. Now that the carefully caliberated chemistry of the show has been rent assunder, John Hinderaker and I are going to be trying out a new format. Excerpt from the forthcoming press release:
The First Team of the Northern Alliance Radio Network offers an odd look at life from a pair unlike anything else on the radio today. Brian Ward and John Hinderaker have been called the modern day Bickersons. The show's unmarried protagonists spend nearly all their time together in relentless verbal war. Brash, dangerously opinionated, wildly refreshing, Ward and Hinderaker can be heard Saturdays from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM on AM1280 the Patriot.
Actually, the relentless verbal war will have to wait, I'm out this week. So John will be forced to carry on the relentless verbal war with some of the voices in his head. I'm guessing it will sound like Steve Cannon-Ma Linger circa 1983.
Alternately, he can take the relentless verbal war he normally wages against our producer Jon Osburn during the breaks directly on air. Either way, it will be must hear radio.
Joining John in the second hour will be screenwriter Roger Simon, talking about his new book Blacklisting Myself: Memoir of a Hollywood Apostate in the Age of Terror.
Even without my input, that sounds wildly refreshing to me.
Check it out today, locally on AM 1280 and worldwide streaming here.
