Saying goodbye to WRKO

7/16/2012
More
After 374 Sunday’s, this was our final show on WRKO. It has been a great experience. I had many people to thank, starting with Gregg Jackson who pushed me into this crazy idea in the summer of 2004. There are lots of folks at WRKO to thank, from Todd Feinburg to Howie Carr to the great roster of producers, Sandy, Bernie, Producer Rob, Dan the Man, Ed, Horseshack. I don’t have a bad thing to say about WRKO. They gave me a great platform to do what I wanted for 374 weekends, so you won’t...

More
This was indeed an honor to speak with Gen. Dave Palmer, former Superintendent of West Point and author of a fantastic book, George Washington: Military Genius "Palmer, historian and former superintendent of West Point, makes a convincing case that America is free, united, and governed by civilians because of Washington’s strategic foresight and tactical brilliance. No subsequent revolution in a dozen other nations ended so happily. Palmer pooh-poohs historians who describe Washington as a...

Is Obama spiking the football?

5/7/2012
More
What a rude host I am sometimes. I invite my friend Sam Bowlby to the WRKO studios for a couple of hours of radio fun and we lasted thirty minutes, bumped by the Red Sox game that would not end. The Celtics playoff pre-game show was starting on WEEI so baseball was headed to WRKO at 6:30pm. Sam, you may recall, is a veteran of two tours in Iraq. He graduated in 2004 from Hamilton College, one of the nation’s finest, and instead of law or business school, he entered the Marines. Two tours...

David Leavy and another side of the New Hampshire primary

1/9/2012
More
I can’t think of the New Hampshire primary without thinking of my winter up there working as a volunteer. I was a senior at Colby College in 1992 and went with my friend and fellow political junkie David Leavy to volunteer. I worked for the Tsongas campaign and David went to work for the Clinton campaign. My campaign, Tsongas’, may have won the primary, but I think the real winner was David! Within a few weeks, David had worked hard and made a great impression and he was invited to go to...

Bruce McQuain does double duty on the show every Sunday. Not only does he do an AMAZING job with our weekly tribute to the troops, Someone You Should Know, he is my favorite blogger on politics, writing up a storm at Questions & Observations. Every Sunday I take the opportunity to talk politics with Bruce, and this week was no different, touching on New Hampshire, the primary process and what it will take to defeat Obama.

The job market for returning vets

12/4/2011

What can say you do but say thank you and show admiration for anyone who has joined the armed forces since 9/11. I am always especially astounded when students from our finest universities and colleges join. I will always remember meeting a Purdue graduate at Walter Reed. Tonight it was my honor to welcome to the WRKO studios Sam Bowlby, a 2004 graduate of one of America’s finest schools, Hamilton College. He didn’t choose Wall Street or law school after graduating but the United States...

Chris DeRose on Founding Rivals: Madison vs. Monroe

11/21/2011
More
Chris DeRose has written a terrific book about a little understood period of American history, those years between the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the first session of Congress under the Constitution in 1789. Founding Rivals: Madison vs. Monroe, The Bill of Rights, and The Election that Saved a Nation Beyond the story of Madison and Monroe, one thing that struck me time and again was how similar the country’s problems were as a nascent nation and today as a world superpower....

Cooking with the Troops is great charity that our friend Bruce McQuain told us about. We were honored to welcome the group’s CEO, C.

Talking guy movies with Producer Rob

Well, we can't solve ALL the world's problem each and every Sunday night. On those weeks we need a break from the madness that is state and national politics. On those occasions, we love to have Producer Rob return to Pundit Review Radio so we can take advantage of his Rain Man knowledge of all things movies. Tonight, the focus was Guy Movies. We took a lot of great calls and got some great suggestions. As usually happens during these segments, we also got a few suggestions out of left...

Mike Mayo: Exile on Wall Street

11/14/2011
More
This was a great honor for me to have Mike Mayo on Pundit Review Radio. He is someone I have long admired for his tenacity, integrity and fearlessness. For the past two decades, he has been the top ranked banking and finance analyst on Wall Street. Fortune named him One of Eight Who Saw The Crisis Coming. He has developed a well-earned reputation as a truth seeker, someone who is uninterested in currying favor with the companies he covers. According to the LA Times review of his fantastic...

John Carroll on Pundit Review Radio

11/14/2011
More
It was my pleasure to welcome BU mass communications professor and WBUR media analyst John Carroll to Pundit Review Radio for the first time last evening. Long overdue, but it was worth the wait. We had a fun, fast-paced hour in which we covered the unfolding Penn State disgrace, the current state of the media and some politics as well, including Sen. Scott Brown versus Elizabeth Warren and the GOP primary. John’s blog, Campaign Outsider, is excellent. I hope to have him back in again soon,...
