Bloggin' On the Air!
Lamont Mclure, look out! I'll be bloggin on the air for two weeks starting on Independence Day.
Where? WGPA 1100 AM. You can livestream the show. This is Jolly Joe Timmer's radio station. Ho. Ho. Ho. This is a call-in talk show, and the number is 610-866-8074.
When? I'll be on between 8 and 10 AM from July 4 through July 6 and from July 10 through July 13.
Who? Local bloggers an pols! Who else? I've invited Our West End Neighborhood, Old Fairgrounds, Easton Undressed, BillyBytes and News Over Coffee., to give us their perspectives on Allentown, Easton, and Nazareth. I would ask Lehigh County Redneck to come on, but to be honest, she scares the hell out of me.
Joe Brennan, the Democratic candidate for T.J. Rooney's state rep. seat, will appear July 5 and share his vision for campaign finance reform. Lehigh Valley Beyond Oil will talk about peak oil and how the Lehigh Valley can cope. Nazareth Borough Councilpersons Jack Herbst and Cindy Werner have been invited to discuss the proposal to build a new government center in a residential downtown park. Topics are still being developed and your suggestions are welcome.
Bloggin'? Each day, in addition to the radio broadcast, there will be a post on the topic being covered on the air. Feel free to call into the show or you can also post comments right onto the blog.
EVENING UPDATE: Jerry Seyfried, who served Northampton County as Council VP, Council Prez, County Exec, and Director of Court Services, will be a guest on Wednesday, July 5, at 9 AM. Jerry actually left the County with a nice cash surplus. Long before the term "open space" became popular, Jerry had the vision to set aside money for that purpose every year. It was part of his Parks 2000 program, which was promptly ignored after he left office. He's one of the "good guys." It's an honor to have him.
I'm also working on a few other surprises, and will let you know about them later.
