Not sure if I shared this before… Here is a show I did about working at KPOJ with Thom Hartmann in the years right before Bain Capitol took control of Clear Channel leading up to the 2012 elections with the goal of eliminating progressive talk competition… First it was Green 960 in SF, KPTK in Seattle, and last but not least KPOJ in PDX… I was initially happy and excited about Xray, now I’m indifferent about the goals there… Personally we need more Adam Klugmans, Chris Hedges, and Filter Free Radios than we need establishment partisan bs like Carl Wolfson and the like…. just a thought 🙂 Here is a link to the show on Youtube… https://youtu.be/Esk7Sfwhjvg

Independent journalist Mark Taylor-Canfield leads the next in our series of free community forums. Taylor-Canfield, whose news articles and editorials have been published at Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Truth-out.org, and other major news sources, is a regular contributor to national progressive radio shows headlined by Thom Hartmann, Mike Papantonio/Ring of Fire Radio, Sam Seder/Majority Report, Norman Goldman, Jeff Santos/Revolution Radio Network, Nicole Sandler/Radio or Not and others.
Joining him for a lively panel discussion on how social networking is being used to access, produce and promote progressive media are:
Jacob Dean, host and creator of the Portland-based Filter Free Radio and former producer for The Thom Hartmann Program; and Seattle based Space Dog Radio, “a fully independent radio station that provides entertaining sounds about a wide spectrum of topics while taking the art of radio to a new level.”
While progressive cities are losing their progressive radio stations (Portland’s KPOJ), the digital universe is alive with a rich spectrum of progressive talkers — from familiar national voices to lesser known but equally impassioned radio talents.
PRNW is working to bringing strong-signal radio back to the greater Seattle area. In the meantime, the extreme right isn’t going away. Join us to explore the power of social networking in building progressive networks and promoting online progressive media. Get your progressive tweet on! Contact Progressive Radio Northwest at ProgressiveRadioNorthwest@gmail.com and RSVP by Friday, March 21 Seating is FREE, and limited!
