  The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 01/04, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will be all about love and loss. The subtitle comes from the theme of my Tribble 12, back in the day.   Love–can’t live with it, can’t bury it in the back yard. (I kid.)   Hope you can stop by, listen to the show, and join us in chat….     Spoiler set list:   Jim Lauderdale: High Timberline Alison Krauss & Union Station: Looking In the Eyes Of Love Stephan Grappelli: Someone To Watch Over Me Audio Clip: Pepe Le Pew Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks: Shorty Falls In Love Buddy Holly: It Doesn’t Matter Anymore The Beach Boys: Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder) Audio Clip: High Fidelity Chris Hillman & Herb Pederson: My Baby’s Gone Jim Lauderdale: Tales From The Sad Hotel Audio Clip: Young Frankenstein Roy Orbison: Crying The Mills Brothers: Smoke Rings Emmylou Harris: If I Could Only Win Your Love Al Green:...

Why Replace Kwanzaa & Black History Month?

Why Replace Kwanzaa & Black History Month?

  An ex-girl friend once ideologically described me as “the Blackest Black man” she knew!   In hindsight, the saving grace of past activism was my goal of first class American citizenship–not outcast status, nor being “professionally angry”, as I call those practicing 1960’s Black Power approaches. I’m not a socialist–never have been. Growing up in the 80’s meant exposure to many Marxist flavors disguised as Black nationalism, Afro-centrism and liberation theology. I never agreed with shooting cops, or redefining criminals as “political prisoners.” Dipping Jim Crow in chocolate and subjecting White folks to our experience was another non-starter. I never wanted pay back: my goal then and now is equal access for everyone! Special rights only means reloaded past prejudices with changed beneficiaries.   As a former active planner/presenter/participant in more Kwanzaa and Black History Month events than I can count, their focus on our being outcasts was at odds with my desire to be American, without artificial limitations or exclusion from like minded folks elsewhere. Kwanzaa and Black History...

A GOP Intervention

A GOP Intervention

  OK GOP. I’m sorry we have to meet under these circumstances, but it’s important.   I know you’ve been through a lot lately. You lost that tough election for President. You think people just don’t understand you. And you’re right … I don’t know how anyone could really understand exactly how you feel. I know you’re tired and depressed. But we need to talk.   These people you’ve been hanging out with lately are not your real friends. They’re what we call “enablers.” They tell you what you want to hear. They tell you what you’re supposed to do to be liked by your opponents in Washington. Well, here’s the plain truth – you will never be liked by your opponents in Washington no matter how hard you try. As long as you’re the opponent you’ll always be called names, like racist, sexist, or bigot. The side with the most media gets the most positive stories. They taunt you with derision every time you give in. You’re called...

CLA Radio 12/28/12: Texas

CLA Radio 12/28/12: Texas

  The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 12/28, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will be all about the Lone Star State. (Editor’s note: due to the holiday schedule, Duane will play an hour of Tejas music leading up to the show, and an hour plus of more Tejas tunes post CLAR! Join us in chat and listening to Duane FM at 6 PM!) Except for the introduction, a few comments after the first two songs, and a few brief show promos by some folks you may recognize scattered through the show, I’m going to let the music run uninterrupted. (And because, as Gary Eaton noted when he guest-introduced an earlier show, I’m lazy.) And, if I do say so (and I do), great music it is! I’ll tell you what! Shout-outs to Pete, Del, Breck and Stephen for some great song/artist suggestions! Hope you can stop by, listen to the show, and join us in chat….   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you...
