Our names are Mary Mancini and Freddie O’Connell, and as many of you know we’ve been producing and hosting a liberal talk radio show called Liberadio(!) that broadcasts on WRVU-FM, the radio station of Vanderbilt University, Monday mornings from 7 to 9 am.
We’re two progressives who’ve been on the air for over two years fighting back against the 170 hours per week of right-wing talk radio that permeates Middle Tennessee’s airwaves.
But we’ve only just begun the fight!
After two years of being on a non-commercial station, we’re setting out to prove that there is room on Middle Tennessee’s airwaves for both progressive ideas and civil dialogue. We’re very close to being able to expand our programming to a commercial station but in order to stay on the air permanently we need advertisers, sponsors and/or underwriters.
If you know of any businesses – service or retail – or individuals that would have an interest in joining us in our mission as sponsors, advertisers, or underwriters, please let us know. We can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or by phone at 615-480-4678.
We know that liberals and progressives who want good government that makes smart investments in our communities have been under threat from the same people whose voices are coming out of your radio for 170 hours per week. They’re demonizing us by politicizing social and cultural issues and by denigrating – with lies, half-truths, and innuendo – progressive beliefs.
And because we can reach into the radio and duct-tape their mouths shut only in our fertile imaginations, we need your help in our real world mission – defending against their attacks with truth, substance, and sincerity.
Again, if you know of any businesses or individuals that believe as we do in progressive ideas and good, smart government and would have an interest in joining us in our mission, please let us know. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or call 615-480-4678.
Thank you so much for your help. We encourage you to tune in to the show (and to try that thing with the duct tape). We also welcome your feedback as we expand our programming.
Here’s to a better future for all,
Mary Mancini & Freddie O’Connell
