Looks like I’ll be doing radio again this evening. After reading my critique of the misogynist and racist posters decorating the podcast studio of “Reb Rider”, Rapid Fire Radio co-owner Shawn Slawson has invited me to call in live to his show with “Reb Rider” tonight at 7 p.m. Mountain, 8 p.m. Central. The program will stream online live at rapidfire.caster.fm.
Given the tenor and punctuation of Slawson’s initial invitation—
hey cheeseburger, yea thats what im going to call you. you want to attack my radio station, dont wage a war your ass cant cash cheeseburger!!!!!!!!!@! [Shawn Slawson, comment, Dakota Free Press, 2018.03.13]
—I’m not convinced anyone on air will do much convincing. But maybe we can achieve a few meager goals:
- Entertain the assembled listeners of the MIB Network—which stands for “Mutual Independent Biker.
- Not say swear words… although since we’re just online, FCC rules don’t apply… uh oh….
- Get “Reb Rider” to man up and use his real name, as I always do in public appearances.
- Get through our discussion of sexist and racist symbols and move on to a broader discussion of the South Dakota Legislature, initiative and referendum, corruption in state government, and South Dakota’s Republican primary contests.
But hey, it’s their show—I’m just calling in, answering questions, and coming along for the ride. Tune in tonight, if you dare! Dakota Free Press on Rapid Fire Radio, exclusively and globally online tonight at 7 Mountain, 8 Central, 02:00 Thursday morning in Paris, and 04:00 in Moscow!
