Tune in Sunday night to KNUS AM 710 from 5 to 8 pm for Backbone Radio. Matt Dunn and Krista Kafer will hit the airwaves with fresh commentary on all things political and cultural.
We will have two terrific guests— Congressman Cory Gardner, who represents the 4th Congressional District of Colorado. He has introduced the Making College Affordable Act to increase the tax exempt contribution to a Coverdell Education Savings Account from $2,000 annually to $10,000. Given the rising cost of college tuition, this bill, if passed, will help countless American families save for college. In addition to hearing about the college savings bill, we’ll ask Congressman Gardner why he voted to extend the current tax rates.
We’ll also talk with Jim Nicholson who served as Secretary of Veterans Affairs and U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See under the Bush Administration. He has also served as the Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Secretary Nicholson is using his political, diplomatic and legal experience to champion Americans’ rights of conscience and religious freedom. Does he think that Americans will prevail against the current attack on their rights or will they lose to powerful interests?
Speaking of prevailing against a threat to First Amendments rights, Americans showed just how they feel about an attack on free speech when they gave Chick-fil-A a record breaking sales day on Wednesday. Special interests and politicians overreached when they threatened to boycott the chain and block the opening of new restaurants. They weren’t the only ones to overplay their hand. Senator Reid of Nevada has done his share in what we’re calling the Week of Overreach.
We’ll also take a bite out of shark bite news, the passing of author Gore Vidal, the unemployment numbers, and a piece of 2,500 year old chocolate recently found by archeologists. Dunn also has some crazy ideas for baby names as he anticipates the upcoming birth of a son.
Don’t miss the hard hitting commentary and great bumper music. Tune in to 710 KNUS or 1460 KZNT Colorado Springs or online at http://www.710knus.com/ from 5 to 8 PM. Your smart choice for Sunday night radio.
