Glen's Solo Enviro Show


It was all Glen, all the time this week 'cuz D.O. was off to the shoreline for his annual sanity reinforcement pilgrimage and Jean was...well....who knows where she's gone too! Glen had some reactions from viewers coming out of the Academy of Music in Noho after seeing Al Gore's film, "Inconvenient Truth". It was a sort of exit poll on the end of the world as we know it (hmmm, sounds like a song title, huh?) Then our favorite inhouse witch, Tamara was scheduled to sit-in and clue us in to the Summer Solstice. Like they say: it's a long day.



Music from the Reagan Babies, Meat Puppets, and Steve Earle. Glen gets to play some music that might otherwise get the big VETO, and it is not gender balanced. The EnviroShow will return to normal...whatever THAT means... next time.

Then a long phone interview with Mickey Novak from the Cronin Salmon Station in Sunderland (413-548-9010). It turns out you can successfully raise salmon (and other fish) with out having to be serial murderer.

Also, Glen was speaking with Joanne Montgomery, a local committed advocate for the environment and wildlife, who witnessed the recent arraignment in Springfield federal court for the proceedings against Zak and Lloyd, the serial Sunderland bird murderers.

The Enviro Filthy War Machine Show, Part II

Jean’s back....really!....BUT she lost her voice :(
When will we finally get to hear about her adventures in Portugal? How about that wave farm over there? (no, they don't grow waves....what were you thinking??) David Keith, president of Valley Citizens for a Safe Environment and Community co-chair of Westover Air Reserve Base's Restoration Advisory Board, and Herbert Bernstein of the Institute for Science and Interdisciplinary Studies over at Hampshire College joined us to continue the discussion on the Filthy War Machine, specifically our local version at Westover air base in Chicopee. We opened the phones for that. But first...It was Revenge of the Critters time!



Following that: an announcement about the G8 Eight Days of Resistance on Climate Justice in DC, July 9 – 16. We put that right up front. (It simply couldn't wait to catch the bus at the end of the show). Also, Al Gore’s "Inconvenient Truth" meets the Competitive Enterprise Institute's Load of Bull! Then it was time for some good old-fashioned Bush bashing: King George’s energy plan whacks conservation.



We set-up the interview with Keith and Herb with another of the Reagan Babies' hits, "Mein Nieke", followed by a segment of former President Eisenhower's famous Farewell Address. It's all about the military-industrial complex folks. Ike warned us and here we are 43 years later. Go figure.



Then it was time to get on to the Bus Stop Billboard:
