I'M for Iowa made the announcement today in a mass e-mail:
For too long, Iowa's airwaves have been dominated by Rush Limbaugh, Jan Mickelson, Steve Deace, Glen Beck and Michael Savage. Well, we have great news: times are changing!
Beginning Monday, September 21st, we will host our own talk show from 7:00 - 8:00 pm, Monday through Thursday on 98.3 WOW-FM. It's called "THE FALLON FORUM" and can be heard from Fort Dodge to Chariton, from Grinnell to Carroll, and can be live-streamed at http://www.983wowfm.com. We hope you'll tune in, and you can join the conversation at (515) 312-0983.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for those of us concerned about pressing economic, social and environmental issues. We want to offer true "talk" radio, as opposed to the "shock" radio dished-up by those on the far right. In fact, THE FALLON FORUM replaces some of the airtime currently given to Michael Savage, the guy who recently recommended making "the construction of mosques illegal in America, and the speaking of English only in the streets of the United States the law."
We'll kick off the show on Monday with Dolores Huerta. Dolores helped found the United Farm Workers of America with Cesar Chavez. At 79, she remains an energetic, outspoken advocate for many important causes, including marriage equality.
On Tuesday, we'll dig into Iowa politics.
Zach Mannheimer with The Subjective Theatre Company joins us on Wednesday to discuss the merger of the artistic and corporate worlds. We anticipate a spirited exchange on the new sculpture garden set to open in downtown Des Moines.
On Thursday, we want to hear your thoughts on America's historic health care debate . . . providing you keep it civil and based on fact. We'll pull the plug on any caller who insists the legislation before Congress pulls the plug on grandma.
Thanks, and we hope you can join us on the show next week!
Ed and Lynn Fallon
Speaking of the Fallons and Iowa politics, I wonder how many primary challengers they've recruited in certain Iowa House districts.
